*Chris and I will be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary this week! As my gift, he bought me a deep house cleaning. Yesterday a crew arrived and spent six hours deep cleaning our house!! Oh. My. Gosh. I can't tell you how excited I was. Blinds? Check! Baseboards? Check! It feels wonderful to have such a clean house and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect gift!!!
While they were cleaning (and the kids were at the loft build), I worked and had an oldie but goodie playing in the background. It sure brought me back to my college days.
*We went to Stater Bros yesterday. Kendall fit well enough to ride during our shopping. Cam...a little too big at this point. :)
*Each year the kids are required to do eight hours of community service for school. Kendall's class has been collecting money for, Pennies for Peace (an organization which sends funds to Afghanistan to help rebuild schools). She had the idea of holding a bake sale to raise money. We planted ourselves in the middle of a street, right by a stop sign. They had a great time and people were really generous!
*Last night we went to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner. We used our last four coupons for a free piece of cheesecake. The kids were ecstatic about getting a piece all to themselves. Kendall went nuts over her Lemoncello Cream Torte. Obviously this would never be a choice I would make, but I must admit, it was pretty tasty.
