Holy Wow, This Was A Lot of Work

Oh my.  Are you guys ready for a big catch-all post?  Because that's what you are going to get.  And, hopefully I can do the last few days justice --- because my sleep-deprived brain is fried.  I mean, seriously, where did I even leave off?

+  My brother was in town last weekend covering a story for CNN {yay for us} and so we decided to hit up the Chandler BBQ festival.  You know I love getting my girls dressed up in (1) coordinating and (2)  themed outfits, so what goes better with barbecue than red, white and blue?  Well, apparently, tattoos.  Let's just say we didn't last long before we headed over to Buffalo Wild Wings.



+  We have been pretty busy this week with classes, play dates and visitors!  Our very dear friends, Ken and Katie, were in town for a couple of days and we got to go on a double date with them Tuesday night.  {Thanks Nana & Poppy for watching the girls for us.}  It was so great seeing them again - oh how we have missed Katie's laugh.  And, by the looks of it, Ken has missed my yummy desserts.


We met up downtown Phoenix at a place called The Duce - it's a huge warehouse-type building that serves food out of an old school Air Stream, has a retro gym inside {with an actual boxing ring inside} and an art deco bar with a 70 year old bartender.  It wasn't exactly what we were expecting, but it ended up being the perfect place for us to spend the evening with two of our favorite people.

+  David and I have taken the girls to a couple different playgrounds over the last couple of evenings.  The weather has just been absolutely GORGEOUS here, especially in the evenings.  This is one of the things I really missed when we lived in California - so it is so nice taking advantage of the beautiful weather.  I tried Sydney out in the swing the other day and she got so tickled by it.  I love being able to play with both girls.


+  Our friends Marsha, Michael and Jessica invited us to go get our pictures taken with the Easter Bunny at the mall today.  I had a feeling that the girls would not want to get their pictures taken, but thanks to Marsha's genius Let Them Eat Chocolate plan, at least one of my girls was cooperative.  Don't worry, they burned off that sugar at the mall playground.

{Dancing and ring shopping}

+  Poor Sydney was terrified of the Easter Bunny {and, I honestly can't say that I blame her}.  Within 0.5 seconds, she was screaming.  The lady took this picture and I immediately picked her up.  I snapped this shot with my iPhone when they showed me the proof on the computer screen because I wasn't about to pay $16 for it.  Yeah, I'm sneaky like that.  

Alright, I'm off to bed.  
Say a prayer that my teething little baby gives me a few more hours of sleep than she's been giving me the last few nights.
Happy Friday

Busy but fun times for the Michelson household. I love all the pictures of the kiddos. Keep up the good work darlin', one of these days Sydney will be old enough to spend the night at Nana and Poppys along with her big sister. Then maybe you will get a good nights sleep.
