I am so excited to go eat their yummy sandwiches, soup and mint brownie. Plus, the walls are chocolate brown with pink accents--could it be more me? I know, I'm a little giddy right now. A few days ago, I told Sam that I really really wanted to win this. He didn't get it. He said, "If you don't win, can't you still just go there with your friends and have lunch?" Oh Sam, you have so much to learn.
I will have to wait until my sister Ashley comes back to Utah because I promised her she could come. I may have to fly her in so it is sooner rather than later. Thank you Mandee and Dear Lizzie for the awesome giveaway! Universe, I owe you a solid.

When I was a freshman at BYU, there was a student from Korea in my ward named Johnnie. I taught him some important English phrases like "What's up monkey butt?" and he started sending me love packages containing all sorts of dolphin merchandise (not the team, the animal.) He followed me my entire freshman year, took me to one very awkward Chicago concert and called me regularly from his mission until I finally told him I was engaged.
Then I went to Jerusalem on study abroad and I got attention there as well. Of course, none of the boys in the program had any interest in me but the Arabs liked me.
One man in Jordan gave me his picture on the street with his info written on a slip of paper. He asked me if I wanted a Jordanian fiancee. I have no idea why I still have this stuff.
So why do I bring all this up? Yesterday I was trolling through the mall with two kids in tow. I never, ever stop for the people soliciting products from kiosks (green tea, curling irons, etc). But yesterday for some unexplicable reason, I did. This young Israeli was peddling lotion from the Dead Sea. I stuck my hand out for a sample and he pulled me over. As we discussed the lotion, he told me how pretty I was, how nice my hands were. I told him I studied in Jerusalem 12 years ago and he said if we would have met then, he would have married me. Forget the fact that he was probably 10 years old when I was there.
The scary thing is, I knew the guy was blowing smoke, I knew he told all the women that, but for a split second, I considered buying his lotion gift set for $49.95. I guess I'm that easy. Don't worry Sam, I regained my composure quickly and put my wallet away. I haven't been hit on by a foreign man in over 10 years but the important thing is I still got it!

Maybe his answer had something to do with our Easter festivities. Here are some photos:
Good times were had. I guess next year we need to focus on Jesus.

Some would say that last Easter I went too far. I got the husband in on the action. He wasn't thrilled about the matching sweater vest (from Gymboree no less) but he begrudgingly put it on and headed to church. I didn't go to church that day because Ryan (who is coordinating with the others but didn't actually go to church) was a newborn and I was staying home with him.
When Sam got home, he told me people (especially other men) gave him total grief about coordinating with Luke. However, Luke thought it was the coolest thing ever to match his dad. So the question is: Do I force Sam to wear the matching vest to church again on Easter? Last year I justified buying Sam the matching vest because I bought Luke's big and he is wearing it again this year and Ryan has one as well--a threesome!!
Have I gone too far. Will Sam leave me if I make him coordinate?

Since I'm going to Hawaii next month to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, I need to find a cute suit. Let's get one thing straight--it ain't to impress Sam. A few nights ago I strutted out in a new swimsuit to get Sam's opinion. His response? "Can you move, your blocking the tv." I need to look good for the other women watching me as I parade across the pool deck to get another diet coke.

"Do you love him Loretta?"
I know there is no rhyme or reason to this list but these are my classics. What are yours?
