So Giddy I Could Spit...

Okay, I wouldn't spit ('cause that's just gross), but I am just so darn smitten with all that's been going on lately...

First off, a parental visit from my parents a couple of weeks ago - my kids were thrilled, as was I - my Mom is the cooker, cleaner and all around house lady that gives me a major break from my life while they are here.  Needed that break!!!  We had such a great visit, and look forward to their next visit (more on that in a bit...)

Secondly, my sister and her other half were here last week....what a great time we had!!!!  They are total foodies, so we ate like kings - my thighs will confirm that!!  We also had a fantastic time with them, and can't wait for them to come back!

Thirdly (is that a word?) my mother in law is due to fly in tomorrow for 8 should be a really good visit as well, the kids will wonder why no one is coming to visit after she goes home!!  We used up all of our visitor cards within one month!

Jayda is starting kindergarten next week - so thrilled for her (and for me! ha).  She is so excited!  Should be a nice change of pace around here, as I will have more time to take the little man to speech therapy at will and not have the constraints of having to lug 2 kids around everywhere.

My Mom and Dad are coming back at the end of September to watch the kids for a week while Dan and I jet off to Vegas for our 15th anniversary!!  Dan doesn't know we are going, I'm hoping to hold off telling him until Mom and Dad are on our doorstep - if you know me, it's been really hard to keep this trap shut, but so far so good!!

And, finally.........Arbonne has launched their holiday line - I'm so flippin' excited - this stuff is awesome!!!!!!!!  I promptly placed my order this morning so I can share all that is yummy Arbonne holiday goodness with all of my peeps here - and now I'm just waiting for the mailman to come and deliver the goods!!  Check the line out - get some Christmas shopping out of the way now, you'll be glad you did later!!! (Just don't use it all up yourself before you wrap them! ha!) 

Hope you had a great summer everyone!!!

Glad you're doing well! We don't have family around either, so I get extra excited for visits, especially from my parents. Your kidless Vegas trip sounds so fun. I would love to surprise my husband like that though I'm not sure I could ever keep it a secret. That's not my strong point. :)

So much fun going on, and so much to look forward to! I'm really excited for your anniversary date with your hubby to Vegas - you guys are going to have a BLAST!
