Phew .. time is flying!

February at a glance ...(oh .. I kinda look old next to all these young girls and they have had babies! But look at how long my hair is!
yes, that would be Peter in the background ... is that still funny? I did giggle I admit)

Jennie and Peter had a little Valentine Fondue party. Why do we not do Fondue more often? I am not really a big chocolate person but it seems that most things are quite yummy dipped in chocolate!

Valentines 2010

Let me just preface this by saying that E is the BEST gift giver! Let me also say that he is a very hard person to shop for. After Christmas (totally bombed) there was just a little pressure. I think I came up with a pretty dang good gift! I got passes for us to go to the Olympic Park and do the Skeleton run. Fun ...right! (after all ...he did take me rock climbing on our first date) I am not really thinking Olympics 2014 but it was sure fun flying head first 40 mph on a sled. How could that not be fun? I loved when the instructor was telling us about our ride and said that it would take us about 25 seconds and E says, "I really think I can get that down to 19." oh boyfriend!

What did he get me????

Can you believe it! I am telling you ... he is the best gift giver!!! How did I get so lucky? We had had a conversation a couple weeks prior to V.D. about the perfect purse and what exactly makes the perfect purse. (why were we having that conversation? he asked how my meeting went that day and I told him that I had spent half of it online looking for 'the perfect purse' ... ) I am always on the look out for one ... and he found it ... or at least pretty darn close! Emily has already claimed it if "things don't work out with you two." kinda weird .. but ok.

E heads for China ... I head for St. George!
I taught a workshop at the UAEA conference last weekend. Pretty sure it was AMAZING! Ok, probably not ... but at least some people showed up and no one was mean to me. Teaching teachers is scary! I look kinda grown up don't I? It is always nice to head south for a little warmth. It was 60 degrees for one of the days which felt great! I am SO done with winter!
I got to visit with Jill (duh ... no pictures?) We basically talked for like 15 hours.

E is in China for work ... he sent me this pic with the caption "Look Familiar"
Love it! Good to know I could totally go to China and survive!

More Love

I love you
Not only for what you are
But for what I am
When I am with you

Love (first stanza)

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.
I Corinthians 13:4-8
