YES.. I'm still alive!

I guess going on vacation will do that to a girl! I was never too excited to log onto someone else's blogger and kick them off so I just took a little sabbatical from the blogging world!

All in all it was a great trip! My kids were sick nearly the entire time so please forgive me family and friends fro coming with coughing kids1 We were on antibiotics the entire time and poor baby Emmy was sick from day one too so Boopers and I just trudged along with kids in tow. Honestly, we didn't really go anywhere or do anything special! It was just great to be together and chill.

I swear I was in bed by 9 p.m. every night just from pure exhaustion. Seriously... doing nothing can tire you out! ( I will say I got sucked into 5 hours of junk tv the night before I came! I just was so excited to see Mike I couldn't sleep! BRAVO has some incredible shows that require little mind power to enjoy them!!! Love it!!!)

We had plenty of time for family and friends! We made it to the only "Must Do's" which included Fiesta Grill and Fabric barn and other then that it was just like good old times!

I did hate having to answers everyones "How is Utah?" questions! I started off telling those who asked that the winter is really getting to me but that all got old and too depressing so I just started to say "Great!" To be perfectly honest this trip has renewed my faith and joy in Utah! The weather in CA only made me look forward to the warmer days ahead in beautiful Happy Vally! I was excited to come home and got a little more closure on my HB days! I would still love to go back for good some day but for sure I need more time here to get my true opinion of this huge change to really sink in!

WEll that's the update! No one really needs to hear about my day to day on my "Vaycay" So I'll leave it at that! I need to up load pics but I am sure you were all getting annoyed at seeing that last post!

I have been reading up on all of you but just not commenting due to the fact that I wasn't logged in under my name!!! Talk to you all soon!

I am glad you had such a great time, minus the sick kids. Being with Sisters has a magic, rejuvenating power, doesn't it?
I use to love coming back to CA from Chicago to visit. But I hated when everyone automatically assumed that I must have felt to relieved being back. Like Illinois must have been less then par and CA is the only place to be. I actually loved the mid-west and miss it so much. Sometimes that CA mentality gets to me a bit. Why people think it must be the only good place to live in the Nation, I'll never understand.
I am happy that you are loving Utah! And that its been such a good move for you and your cute family.

So glad you had fun! I know what it's like to be on vacation with your most loved sister and doing nothing is really doing something because you are with one of your favorite people! It is even more fun when you both have kids and can relate. This past trip Jamie and I couldn't even go anywhere together with the kids unless we were in seperate cars! :)

Vacations are the best! I'm so glad you got to go and have a good time, even if everyone was sick! I have to say, it's nice to hear another Bravo tv junkie fan! I love their shows! Anyway, it's good to see you back! I just kept checking to see if you were here yet...so I'm glad you're back!

Sounds like you had a nice trip! Too bad I didn't see you while you were in town...I'm sure you probably were at church on Sunday...but it was the one Sunday in like 3 years that I was home sick! oh well! Glad you had lots of time to spend with your sis. Sometimes just hanging out and doing nothing is the best!!
