They're baaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.

Every year this time, my Kryptonite returns. It's worse than crack. I just can't resist them. Someone help me.

Oh, yes we did.

Friday Night. Stake Center. Dim, but not too dim, lights. Line dancing. Break Dancing. The YMCA. You know where I'm going with this...

We totally chaperoned a stake dance for youth conference Friday night! You guys, take a moment to reflect on your Stake Dance memories. Yep, everything that went through your mind just now happened right before our eyes. It was one big giant flashback to my teen years, so why was it so much fun? Cotton Eye Joe and Love Shack just never get old, eh? I'm forgetting...what are the other stake dance classics? Help me out.

Why Valentine's Day is so darned loveable.

Because it ended with an insane amount of fruit...

fondued in rich, velvety chocolate...

which resulted in delicious leftover goodness that I HAD to eat since Adam went to all that trouble preparing it and I just couldn't bear to hurt his feelings (that's my excuse anyway). Is it wrong to love chocolate more than oxygen? Please say no.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

This is for my mom who always made sure we were dressed for every holiday when we were little and now is dressing our next generation. Love you, Mom!

And am I the only one who can't smiling when I see this face? I just can't get enough of her!

Hope everyone has a great day. And remember, you have full license to eat as much chocolate and as many cinnamon hearts as you want today. Live it up!

In-N-Out poser exposed.

It all started out when we decided to take Elizabeth to the Galleria for the first time. I love a girl who loves shopping!

We had heard all about this hamburger place at the Galleria that could rival In-N-Out. Since Adam and I have seriously contemplated making a special trip out to Cali just to get a neopolitan shake or a double double, we thought we'd give this more local option a try. The place is called 5 Guys, Burgers and Fries and this is the menu.

Those of you fellow In-N-Out lovers are probably already breaking out into hives at the sight of the menu. Well, before you completely break down, let me say that it's not as bad as you think. The burgers are fresh and they taste good...just not In-N-Out good. Elizabeth was even willing to take one for the team and finish mine for me.

The fries are just fine, I guess. I mean, they come in a styrofoam cup. What is that about? I'm just sayin'.

Fortunately, we made sure that we rushed Elizabeth to In-N-Out immediately upon arriving in Cali for Christmas so she was not fooled by this imposter restaurant. Even though the guy we had take the picture below was clearly not coherent, we thought better of having him retake it since we were interrupting his consumption of a double double and I find that to be a crime of gargantuan proportion.

Anyway, if you're in the neighborhood and like a good burger then go ahead and swing by but for the love, if you hear anyone compare it favorably to In-N-Out, report that person to the proper authorities immediately as he or she is clearly suffering from some sort of altered state of consciousness.

This is for Sara. It's my 4th pic in my 4th folder and these stunning kiddos are my sisters babies. I happen to think they're adorable. And since I've already tagged some folks, if you want to post your 4th pic in your 4th folder, consider yourself tagged.

Speaking of milestones...

Elizabeth has also learned to steal the remote from Daddy and find something good on tv...the little show off.

Now, if only her mom could become more proficient at red eye correction, but that's a milestone for another day. :)
