This week was FULL ON CRAZY. Where to start?
Well…first things first….Zach and I have a brand new niece, Charlotte! Lucky #21 in the Henderson family! Zach’s sister, Gina, had Char a little early, but they are both doing well!
Monday we had a family Birthday Dinner/Pool Party at Mark and Jeanene’s house. Our sister-in-law Siri and her three kids are here visiting from Philly and we decided to celebrate while everyone was in town! Of course there was kiddie soup…the Henderson parties go hand-in-hand with hot tubbing…
Zach and I knew that we had a pretty crazy weekend ahead of us, so we took some time to do a date night on Thursday night this week. We went to Sawadee, which I had been craving for weeks and ended the night with a movie. We saw The Help, which came highly recommended.
I LOVED it. Zach even admitted it was better than he expected. Loved the story, the music, and the fashion…and Emma Stone.
Saturday morning, Zach’s cousin’s shower was held at my house. It was fun to be with family and friends, and Jeanene brought amazing food, as always, and we over-indulged. I OVER INDULGED, let’s be honest.
Saturday night, our Relief Society Presidency was in charge of our ward party, which was Ward Wild West. We had pulled pork sandwiches, corn on the cob, a photo booth with a real saddle, line dancing, and a cobbler cook-off! Once it was all set up on our end…it was a blast!
I know people say it is not good to wait for events to come in the future, that it is more important to live in the present…and I agree. But the end of this weekend only means one thing: 5 more days until Zach and I will be here….
Chi-Town. I’ve always dreamed of going to Chicago…the food, the architecture, the old-school mobster/prohibition history….
Living in the present is more important, but I hope the future comes FAST!
