Loving this...

With Jen here for the week and our dear friend Emily visiting for the night, I am reminded of how much I like having some GIRLS in my life to laugh and talk and talk and talk with. Maybe someday I'll have a daughter...

But for now, I'll just enjoy these wonderful BOYS...
Here's Chase in his new spot under the piano, just chillin' and eating a very appetizing looking banana. Yum.
Whilst playing outside the other day, Nick asked me to come sit around his camp fire and roast marshmallows. I love seeing what this kid comes up with.

I love these boys!

my new BFF...

I only have 30 seconds to blog (Jen is coming today! Wahoo), but I had to post this picture:
I went to 'Time Out For Women' this past weekend in Cincinnati, where the line-up of speakers included Emily Watts, Kris Belcher, Sheri Dew, Wendy Watson Nelson, and HILARY WEEKS (among others). Guess who we say right next to at dinner before the event started? We were just a little bit excited...just a little. We're all big Hilary Weeks fans in the Goldie Family, and she was such an awesome performer -- so real and genuine. If anyone ever has a chance to go to one of these, DO IT! I will admit I was a bit hesitant (which might have something to do with the fact that I've been taught that any church events that aren't actually sponsored by the church is verging on priestcraft), but the spirit was so strong and I left feeling like a new woman. And spending 24 hours with the Goldie girls was wonderful. We laughed, we cried, and we talked, talked, talked. Can't wait to do it again next year!

Marvelous May...

I've been looking forward to May for quite some time, and now that it's here I'm sure it will fly by too quicky!

We've had this beauty here with us this weekend, Brad's sister, Mallory. She just completed her degree in Art Education. Go Mal!

Next weekend we're going to CELEBRATE my brother TIMOTHY's graduation from Villanova LAW SCHOOL in Philly! While I'm thrilled for Tim, I might just be even more happy for Kate (maybe because I relate to her position a little bit more!)!

The weekend after that we're headed back to Ohio so that I can cash in on my Christmas gift from Debbie. The Goldie girls (minus Ella) are going to 'time-out for women' in Cincinnati. Wahoo! My first night away from my kids since Nick was 10 months old!

As if this were not enough, guess who's coming to spend a week with me at the end of May? My best friend, Jen, and her adorable baby, Thatcher. I CANNOT wait!

Happy May Everyone!
