Pizza Date Night

We decided to have a date night and...

MAKE OUR OWN PIZZA (from scratch)

We made a margarita pizza with a quick yeast dough.  It was very yummy, although a thinner crust next time would be much better (so dense).

We ended up watching Pacific Rim, eating pizza, and drinking wine.  The movie we meh...but I was glad we got to spend some time together and relax!

Easter Baskets

I was out of town visiting Zac and Adri Easter weekend so I was actually flying home on Easter morning.  Boo!

Easter dinner is one of my most favorite meals to cook but unfortunately we didn't get to enjoy it this year.  We did however enjoy some Easter baskets and candy.

Next year we are not going to neglect our Easter traditions!!

All three boys were spoiled (Clyde never participates in gift opening)

Okay, make that four spoiled boys

BUT I am the most spoiled

The Marrisons

I had work in San Diego, CA so I was able to see Kelly, Jay, and the kids!  Had a great time and love my yearly visits.  I hope I can make it next year even though I will not be on the same assessments.

While working I went to Green Acres and had delicious salads for lunch.

Ran in La Jolla with the seals!

 Had margaritas and Mexican food with the Marrisons




My sissy and me!

Had to get In 'N Out Burger with a shake

A Little Chicago Library

While onsite in Chicago we were in a building that had a cute little library (small but beautiful).  It was the library/hallway in  Stranger than Fiction.

 Hallway to the library


 Little stairway up to the second level of books

It was a little scary being so high up

Great view
