President's Day with Cole

Over President's Day weekend, my little brother Cole came to visit us! We were lucky enough to go snowboarding the whole weekend. We rode half of the day Friday at Sundance and then headed up to Brighton on Saturday and Monday. It snowed the entire day on Saturday! We were bundled from head to toe and absolutely soaked to the bone. Although we were wet and freezing, there is nothing better than riding in the fresh pow! Brighton got a few new feet late Sunday night, so Monday was also an incredible day. It was fun for Ryan and Cole to shred through the trees together and I actually kept up!


It was just so great having Cole here. We have the best time with him! We ate at some of his favorite places, watched tons of movies, played a little Halo and some cards and had the greatest time! Cole makes me laugh more than anyone in the world. It is so fun to reminisce over stories from our childhood and laugh until our stomachs hurt. Cole and Ryan are like the brothers they never had to each other. I love it. We already miss him so much!
Coleus come back!

All tuckered out after a long day...

It was the best weekend ever!

superbowl sunday

On Sunday we had a little shin-dig to watch the big game! The superbowl is by far my favorite game of the year. I don't care about which teams are playing... its all about the ads for me! (obviously). This game is perfect because it's the one sporting event where the boys can watch their beloved football and the girls might actually find a little enjoyment! We can plan a fabulous party, eat yummy food and chit chat. 
What more could I ask for?

How funny is this picture? Baby C was more interested in her food than being photographed.

 We just love our friends!

This little thing was the real entertainment  of the night.
Every guy and girl in the room was fixated on her every move.
We are all obsessed!

We consider ourselves so blessed and lucky to have such incredible friends that double as neighbors to hang out with!

Lindsay turns 22!

Some of my very best friends got together this week to celebrate our best friend Lindsay's birthday!

It was so fun to have dinner, and catch up about everything going on in our lives. Just a short time ago none of us were married or nearly as busy. We used to have a lot more quality time together! Now it is an absolute treat (and challenge) to get together. It is crazy how much things change in such a short amount of time.
I can't imagine my life without any of you girls!

We had dinner at Lajolla Groves!

On her actual b-day, we had cake & ice cream with Linds at her house.

The gorgeous birthday girl!

22 wishes!

 *Happy birthday Linds! I'm so thankful to have you as my bestie!*
