she turns 22...

another birthday has come and gone. usually on my birthday i don't feel any older than the previous day...but i definitely felt older this time around. the big 2-2. i have to say this was a great day from the moment i opened my eyes until i fell asleep that night.

mark woke up before me, as usual, and headed off to work...or so i thought. turns out he had taken the whole day off of work to surprise me & keep me company! 

at 9am i woke up to breakfast in bed {kneader's french toast & a croissant sandwich}. delish! then i opened up some presents from family. i have to say i really did well this birthday. my family beyond spoiled me this year. new camera lens, photography editing software, clothes & another barefoot contessa cookbook! but, the best gift by far were tickets to wicked from the husband! i love love love wicked & it was such a treat to see it for the second time on my birthday with the man i love.
Birthday morning!

Gobbled it up!
My growing cookbook collection

Anthro shopping trip...SUCCESS!

can't wait to see what year 22 has in store for me.

nanny adventures

for the past 3 weeks i got a true taste of motherhood - i spent 10 hours each day caring for, entertaining & singing and dancing with the cutest 2 year old baby girl. from coloring and snack time to laughing so hard that she needed a new pair of undies :) we had a blast together. 

Little Yaara
Daily drawing - she loved sharks

parents, & especially mothers, truly are heros. i have no idea how they do what they do each day for their children. i was able to talk to my mom one day while yaara was napping and i confessed to her how impressed and in awe i was by everything that she did for my sister and me while we were growing up. working mothers & stay@home moms are equally amazing - a mother's job is never ending. cooking, cleaning, hardest job there is.

so thank you, mom & dad!

although i miss little yaara, i have to say that i do not miss driving to park city every day. I {LOVE} park city, as well as the drive up there, but commuting is tiring & only wastes precious hours in the day. 

until next time...
