Seven Minutes Left

I have to finish this month of blogging strong.
I have seven minutes until the day is over.

It's been a really fun day.

My dad had an eye surgery today in Miami (they're a renowned eye surgeon place, so he flew down here for it), so I met my mom in Fort Lauderdale for the day to shop and hang out.

Since I am in a minimizing mode, I didn't get as much as usual (I am sure my mom's credit card was thankful, haha)....and having all four kids doesn't make for fun shopping (though they did great).

Caleb asked for something, and I said no.  My mom said, "Caleb, I will get it for you."
To which he replied, "Mimi always saves me."

Aren't grandparents the best?????
Both Brett's parents and my parents are just the greatest.  My kids are so fortunate to have two awesome set of grandparents (and two sets of great grandparents, on Brett's side).  Our parents have been married 35 and 39 years.  I can't even explain how grateful I am to come from such strong familial units.
Having parents who have stuck together through thick and thin shows that a good marriage is attainable.

They're just so awesome.  And I am very thankful.
I will write more about them in the future.  But, for now, I am too amped up to concentrate.

Florida State just won a huge comeback game football game tonight, so I am SOOO excited!!!  It did not look like we would win.

At the beginning of the second half, they showed a clip of Brett playing Louisville in 2002.  After the clip, FSU outscored Louisville 42-10.


We were pretty down about how poorly FSU was playing and were preparing for a defeat.  

They showed this clip.....and it was a super fun moment to share with our kids....and it totally changed our attitudes.  Our phones blew up with friends texting and tweeting.  SUPER FUN!!  Then, FSU totally turned up the heat and ran the table on Louisville to WIN!!!!!  

24-0, baby!!!!!!

  1. It is so cool for your kids to see their dad on TV during a game.

    "Dad! You're on TV! And you look young."

    I have seriously enjoyed reading your blog every day. No joke. Your family makes me laugh.
