From Minneapolis, Minnesota to Toronto, Canada

Most of you know that I have two kids and am pregnant with my third baby...this is my first "non-work" trip away without my kids! (Of course I'll be taking the one growing in my belly!) I'm going to be spending the weekend with my sister Cindi (who recently got engaged!) so we'll be doing wedding things together! HOW FUN! I know a little about weddings so we're hoping that comes in handy!

And we're both going to be bridesmaids in a wedding this weekend! One of my old room-mates is getting married and my brother is taking the photos - can't wait! It'll be a little wonderful.

I have to say that the things I'm looking forward to most are really dumb: not having to talk or keep anyone entertained on the plane, listening to my IPOD, not having to change diapers, not having to think about a schedule of any kind and getting to have uninterrupted conversations with adults. Don't get me wrong I LOVE BEING A MOM and I LOVE PARENTING MY KIDS but, all the more reason why a little break is needed!

I wouldn't be able to go if it weren't for my amazing husband! I love you sweetheart. Thank you for my 5 day retreat without guilt! You are an amazing father and I know you will have a blast with our kids. I know you'll be stressing about Adriah's hair for pre-school and church but, don't worry about it...she's gorgeous no matter what! Get it lots of wrestling and fast food! I know you will!

I am so excited...but, I need to get done a bunch of stuff before I, I should get back to it!
