The other night I was sitting at my desk in the room doing my homework while Addison was doing his at the kitchen table. I look over on the desk and to my pleasure see some silly string left over from new years and decided I would attack him. I grab one of the four cans and sneak into the kitchen and start spraying him. I thought I was pretty clever. I ran and jumped onto our coffee table, to have the height advantage of course. Well, he disappeared. I heard him unwrapping some of the silly string, which I expected. What I did not expect was for him to run at me with THREE cans and spray me until they were all gone. I don't know why I didn't expect it. When Addison decides to start something, he will finish with a victory, and he did. Our poor apartment was destroyed the pictures really don't do it justice. and the smell...it was bad, I couldn't breath while he was spraying me. It was fun to have a break from homework though, even if it was a few short minutes and my hair was tangled for days.
The week after I got home from our cruise my mom and I threw Kensi a baby shower. Ok, so it was mostly my mom, she is really great at throwing parties, and come to find out, it isn't one of my strong attributes. Despite me being one of the planners I think that the shower turned out pretty good. Kensi was able to see lots of friends and family. I loved seeing my sister. I am so blessed that I was given all of these sisters to be friends with. We are all weird, and really loud when we are together, but I wouldn't trade them for anything. Kensi and Brett will be such great parents. Kensi has always been so loving and kind to everybody and I do not doubt that her kids will be the most loved kids on earth. I can't wait to meet her little guy! Here she is at 38 weeks. How cute is she?!
My friend Alexis and I were sitting in class one day in January and I said, "hey Lex, let's go on a cruise." We started looking into it during class, not thinking that it would really be possible. I made a slideshow for my husband of all the reasons we should go on a cruise for spring break. It must have been pretty convincing because three days after I said that to Alexis, and made the slideshow, our trip was booked. :) I guess you could call it an impulse buy. We set out on April 6th right after all of our finals to start our long drive (yes, we drove.) from Idaho to Texas. As I look back, it really didn't seem like such a long drive to me, the men always remind me it was because I did not drive at all. I like to think it was because we were having fun. I cannot tell you how many sketchy gas stations we stopped at. That was our word for the trip "Sketch." We had a lot of...well...interesting experiences on the road. I wouldn't trade them for anything! I was so lucky to be able to stop at my sister's house on the way to Galveston and the way back. I had not seen her in over a year, although we could only stop for about an hour each way, It was so fun to see her and love on her little kiddos. They have all grown up so much, and I got to meet my newest neice, Sawyer.
