I have the most amazing husband! Friday I was called to the office for a special delivery. I went to the office to find an Edible Arrangement waiting for me. Michael sent me the arrangement with only my favorite fruits just because he wanted to. It wasn't my birthday or our anniversary, and he wasn't in trouble....he was just being a sweetie! The card attached said, "Thanks for being so wonderful." It was delicious! I wish Michael was home to share it with me. (He's working this entire weekend.)
Michael, Jamie, Carlos, Stephanie, Chris, Jason, Gelena, and I went to the Brad Paisley concert Thursday night. I don't know many families that enjoy each other as much as we do. Donna, Lynn, Brooke, and Beth were at the concert also. We had a lot of fun! I wish the concert hadn't been on a Thursday night. I was extremely tired by Friday afternoon, but it was worth it. During the concert you could text Brad and the messages showed up on a billboard next to the stage. Michael and Gelena's messages were posted on the board. I thought that was pretty cool! Before the concert Beth and Donna got backstage passes...how awesome?!?
Cousins are forever!

My cousin, Amanda, had her first baby, Shayne, in October of 2008. Since she lives in Florida we decided to wait until she came home to throw her a baby shower. It was a great night filled with family togetherness and fun!
Since Amanda & Dave's wedding was in Florida they didn't getting a "pounding." A pounding is an old tradition that my family does for every couple getting married. Everyone brings a "pound" of non perishable food to fill the new couple's pantry. Since Amanda & Dave were in Tennessee for the baby shower we decided to give them a surprise pounding on this trip. Amanda & Dave's pounding is only 6 years late :o)
These are the pounding items. The table is usually overflowing with food items, but we decided to do more gift cards since Amanda & Dave have so far to drive.
The happy parents
