They’re home!

This weekend my parents finally got home from Paris! I’m not sure, but I think I was the MOST excited to see them.

The whole family got together on Sunday night for Andrew’s birthday and to hear about the trip. It was a great night!

It started with a homemade angry birds cake. Complete with lego candles and angry bird pencil toppers

I love getting everyone together. Although Andrew is the only one paying attention in the picture haha

After Andrew opened his gifts, my mom handed out presents! My younger brother got a shot glass (he collects them from around the world). My older brother got a french cookbook (in French and with their measuring system!) The kids got soccer jerseys, and my sister in law and I got scarfs! My mom said they were everywhere!

I picked the pink one and also the green poka dot

The girls also got this compact. I have never owned one, and the top is absolutely gorgeous and its PINK!

Question for you:

Where did you travel that was the farthest from home?

-Ireland for me 🙂

Another house, and dog…and cat…

This title is probably not what you are thinking. Andrew and I are not moving,  getting a dog or a cat. But in the past 12 hours, we have come to have all three. My parents are able to go on this AMAZING trip to Paris. And as a result I’m stuck with this little guy, Riley.


 So far he hasn’t left my side once. (I think he is still wondering where my dad is!)

Not only will I be taking care of my house, water my plants and cutting the grass. I will also be doing this at my parents. My mom even left me this post it note under the plants in the kitchen haha

 Along with taking care of Tiger Woods (cat) and Riley. Well, we have made it 12 hours………we’ll see how this goes. It’s not looking good haha

The day started with a trip to the gym. I have to workout in the morning, otherwise, at night it would NEVER happen. Then it was time to head to the aiport. My parents will be traveling for almost 12 hours EEEEKKKK (but I’m still jealous!)

I also made them each a card that they had to read on the plane WHILE they were in the air

(part of my dad’s said “PLEASE. don’t wear socks with sandles” haha)

(part of my mom’s said “If you see something you like BUY IT! We can’t go back and get it later”haha”)

And a picture, just so they don’t forget what we look like 🙂

Question for you:

Are you traveling at all this summer?

Do you have any traveling traditions?

-If my family is going on a plane, I always write them a letter. I like that they have something fun to look forward to on the plane.
