The Easter bunny visited our church this morning… Me and Amanda posed for a quick pic.  🙂

Next week is Easter Sunday.  Looking forward to it!  I have the girls dresses ready, just need to get something for Bailey.

It’s Easter.

See Amanda & Emelia’s hair <Lauren>… I gave them a version of your cute side bun for church today.  It was raining which we were very happy to see considering the ongoing fires… so there was no reason to straighten hair to get wet, right? 

Several people have asked about my “job…” so I thought I would explain it.  Remember I mentioned doing CAD’s for the oil sites over the last year?  The person I had worked for was partners with some engineers and others.  There were some unfortunate things going on including embezzlement that led him to break away from the partners and start fresh with honest people.  That’s where I enter the scene.  🙂  … Anyway, I have gone from doing a few cads here and there to basically working full time or more.  I go into the office pretty much daily to print spill plans, I have developed a new original spill plan, figured out all the formulas for berms etc.   I guess all that math in college has paid off a little.  We are turning in our first batch of 30ish spill plans this week so the heat is ON!  I am a little nervous and have checked and rechecked my work.  I hired bailey to do input for me and he did a pretty good job.  I unfortunately am the only one who knows how to do CADs so I’m still left to do them along with everything else, but am excited about  the job in general and even though it’s hard work I have really been enjoying it.

p.s.  I’ve lost 20 pounds!!!!

Better late than never…  It’s been a crazy full of tons of work kinda week!

Izzy was not feeling well several days this week so she got to go to work with me.  She seemed to enjoy getting out with me and I enjoyed having her with me too.


My first favorite thing from this week was our house and the homes of our family members in Choctaw being spared from the fire.  Matt and I drove around this afternoon and looked at a lot of damage.  It was so sad to see so many houses burned down to the ground.  There were many news reporters and lots of traffic out looking. 



Next is the cute outfit Gram ordered for Izzy to wear for Easter!  I heart Hanna Andersson!  Thanks Gram!



My third favorite thing of this week was the scale reading today!  Apparently working a lot does wonders for losing weight :)! 


Weekends!  I’m so happy it’s Friday night and hope to sleep past six a.m. tomorrow.  I have work to do over the weekend, but I have a good handle on what needs to be done!


Easter!  Amanda wants to dye eggs tomorrow.  We’ll have a Easter Egg Hunt and a delicious ham dinner (yay mom!)… Church on Sunday and a special service Sunday night!  It’s about way more than running around finding coordinating outfits for all the kids 🙂 !  Hope you all have a blessed and wonderful Easter weekend. 

p.s. Thank you Haley and Nancy Face for the cute Easter cards!
