Talent, Coffee, & a Bday

The last couple days I have been sick with a nasty cold, but its on its way out! Thank goodness!!

On Wednesday, I went home sick from work, but luckily after some rest and a long nap, I was feeling well enough to make it to my oldest nephews Jr High talent show! They said they do things big there, and boy, do they ever!  I was so impressed by the whole show and all the courage and talent all these young kids have! I am most proud of Gage, getting up in front of hundreds of people to show off all his hard work and dedication - he did a karate demonstration to Bon Jovi's, It's my Life.  I was a super proud Aunt that night, but then again, I am always proud!! I was able to snap this picture while I was video recording his performance - sorry the quality isn't that great!  Great Job Gager!

Thursday, my cold was getting the best of me, and I made it at work until 3, then I couldn't take it anymore, I needed to be in bed, getting some rest to kick off this cold, on the way home I managed to stop by Dutch Brothers and get a smoothie, the coldness of it made my throat feel better temporarily.  Dutch Bros is a local favorite most known for their espresso, you can find these stands all through-out Oregon (and some other western states).

Today, was my Mom's Birthday! I am so lucky to have her in my life, she is my best friend and I don't know what I would do without her! She is so strong and such a giver.  She makes our family what it is, and I don't think we tell her enough what a great mom, wife, and grandma she is!  I surprised her with bright pink roses and a yummy chocolate cake on my lunch hour! My mom & dad, oldest nephew Gage and I went out to dinner for her birthday to celebrate.  This weekend the whole family will get together at the park to celebrate her birthday!

Love you Mom, hope you had a great birthday!!!

Happy Friday Friends,
