Livy and Logan

This weekend we hung out with our friends and watched the Jazz game. Well, actually the boys watched the game and we watched the kids and talked. It reminded me of that Tostitas commercial where the mom’s get together to hang out and they say their little babies really enjoy it so they need to do it more often. That is us. We even took pictures of the little ones so they could remember how much fun they had together. Thanks for having us over Jess!

On Sunday we ate at my parents house because my little sis and one of my best friends, Steph, is moving to California for 4 months. So we had dinner and then she had a little get-together with her friends. We had some yummy treats (What Andrus party doesn’t have good food). Logan and I are going to go and visit her this summer though so that should be fun! I will miss her until then though!

Old Friends

This was another eventful weekend although it has been a lot more relaxed than last weekend. The highlights… We celebrated uncle Matt’s birthday at the Spaghetti Factory, had two softball games, and I had a bridal shower for a high school friend, Bullough. That was by far the greatest highlight of the week. It’s always fun getting together with old friends and reminiscing over the good old days when we were carefree and skinny. We spent hours talking about the funny things we did in high school and had many instances of that gut wrenching painful laugh because you can’t stop. It was so nice celebrating Bullough and spending time with her. Thanks girls for all that were there! It was a night to remember!

My crazy week!

I haven’t posted for about a week because I have been crazy busy! The Sunday after showcase we took a ride up to see the billy goats. We borrowed Daddio’s scope so we could see them better. This is a Sunday outing Bry did growing up, so we do it every now and then. On Monday we went to dinner for 3 of my best friend’s birthdays. We went to Zuppas! So yummy. Love you guys! I had my banquet on Thursday which was really special- a great ending to a great year. After banquet we drove to St.George and arrived at 1:00am on Friday because I had to judge down there on Friday and Saturday. I then judged for 17 hours on Friday and Saturday and we drove home Sunday.

There is the down low of my crazy week. Now the fun stories… When we were in St. George Logan was in the garage and found some screw drivers on his own. He picked them up and found a tiny little screw on the garage door sensor. He proceeded to try and be like daddy and fix the garage door. It was so cute… we didn’t entice him to do this at all. He has just seen daddy do it and surprised us all with his mad contracting skills. Last cute story… when I was judging Bryan took Logan out to dinner at The Pizza Factory. After they ate he got a sucker for himself and Logan to share. He gave it to Logan and then never got it back. He was a sticky mess after but he was not going to let go of that sucker if his life depended on it. I love my little guy.

Showcase is over

Showcase is over and I am filled with mixed emotions. It was hard saying goodbye to my team and to all the parents that I have been blessed to know over the past 5 years. I still have banquet this week, but my time at Brighton is almost over. At showcase my dancers did a great job and it was fun to sit back and watch them one last time. This was a great team this year so it was really hard; we had many tearful goodbyes. Thank you to all that came and supported me at my showcase. It meant a lot to see you there! I will post a few pictures from showcase in a couple days.
