laughter with my family and oh what is that at my front door?

Oh today was a marvelous, busy, funny, exciting day! I tend to start my sentences out with, oh, a lot. Anyway, work was fun today although I didn't get a break the entire day. But, hey that happens from time to time. I drove to Conway and met up with John (he was up there already because Meg's brakes went out in her car and he had them fixed) at the girls house for our family date dinner. We ate at this Mexican restaurant called Faby's....it was fabulous! This is Tori & Nick's favorite Mexican restaurant.

John got stuffed chicken avocado....it was very de-lish-e-o-so.


They make there flour tortilla's homemade everyday....mmmmm...they also gave us free soup & free dessert. Tori told the waiter how Meg spoke fluent Spanish so he made Meg talk only in Spanish to him. Spanish is one of her Majors. We cracked jokes and laughed the entire dinner. It was a good time as usual. I just love our dinners together.




This is where Reeses sat on the drive home. Isn't that hilarious!

So when we arrived home I pulled in the drive & saw a brown package at my door! Oh, I was so excited!!! I ran to the door and picked it up and I was right, it was from Becky! Becky @ In the Trenches and I did a swap. I crocheted her a Shawl Wrap and she sent me some amazing stuff!!
First of all the card is just to cute...I love the magnets! Second, Good & Plenty is my all time favorite candy. I have already eaten half a box while writing this blog! I now have licorice breath. Third, I'm so excited to read this book!!! And last but NOT LEAST.....OH. MY. GOSH. I screamed and jumped up and down....do you see it....She got me a TEAM EDWARD BAG and a MRS. CULLEN shirt.
Oh heck yea! I know what I'm wearing on November 21st!!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Becky. This was so cool. I feel like a teenager getting all excited over the shirt and bag. My husband got the biggest kick out of me. I'm so glad I decided to pick up those Twilight books....could you imagine a life without Edward Cullen? Geez, I couldn't.

Yay!! I am so glad you liked your stuff! (I was very worried that your husband wouldn't like the shirt!)
That book is the best!! Start it right now! (and know that there are like 7 after it!!)

Heather said...

Yay, I'm so glad you got your package! I am going to finish your cards this week and mail them next week, so you will have them before Halloween.

Isn't it fun getting gifts in the mail?

OK...Could you or our family BE ANY CUTER? I don't think sooooo.

I really hope we all enjoy our family time as much as you do when the kids get big...

You look like you are sisters with your girls...!

Julie said...

Oh my goodness that mexican looks so good and your girls are so cute. I mean really, is it fair they are so beautiful? Their hair is the same in that one pick, pushed to the side, you would think they were twins...

And what a fun swap bag! So great. Love it...and that shirt and bag are so fun...thanks for helping me finish the Twilight series.... I cannot wait!

Betty said...

LOL! You are nuts.... I haven´t read those books yet, but they must be really good! :)
I love the pic of your girls being silly. Or was that you? I can´t tell you three apart!

April said...

First of all, you and your girls look so much alike...like sisters, triplets...whatever! You get the point, I'm sure! :) Just adorable!

The picture of that Mexican food looks so yummy! It's, by far, my favorite!

How fun to do a swap with one of your blogging buddies!! You racked in some great stuff! I have to admit that I haven't read any of the "Twilight" books. I know, I need to get with the program!!

Anyhow, glad you had a fun night with your girls. When you mentioned Conway, it really made me miss Arkansas. I want to go "home"!!!!
