I Have "Arrived"

I got to LAX safe and sound late Wednesday. The biggest treat, my "little" sister and her husband picked me up.

So my time here has been spent without much sleep, running around, snuggling my nieces and nephews, hitting clearance racks full of "summer" clothes and enjoying a few of my favorite indulgences. In-and-Out was my first "pleasure" I attended to and I'll have to say (don't hate me) it was good but not great! I can tell that I've become accustomed to different flavors in my short 5 months in Costa Rica. Interesting. :)

I also took a break from my attempts to attack my do to list and spent the evening with my beloved store "Borders". Remember, they have the better hot chocolate compared to Barnes and Noble. Although Barnes and Noble has the better seating situation. Now that was just what I had hoped it would be. I was like a kid in a candy store. I was ready to devour all of the books on the shelves but alas, my checking account forbid it. I also have a 50 pound weight limit on my luggage. So I grabbed a few I've been meaning to read and sat, tapped my foot along with the jazzy music being played and sipped my cocoa. Heaven.

My only "pleasure" left on my list is my Ruby's chocolate malt with extra malt. I love these so much that when I'm pregnant I only allow myself to digest one my entire pregnancy. I worry if I don't curb this craving, I'll be huge. So tomorrow it's off to Ruby's, either before or after I meet with the tax guy. I'll do it after, I'm going to need it then!

sounds like you are enjoying yourself. Enjoy for me too.
I haven't been back to the States in over two years!

It was good to see you! I hope you enjoy your time here. Your kids are all so beautiful! I love reading about all your adventures. You are so much braver than I. Here is my email: Email me and I'll send you an invite to my blog. Not nearly as interesting as yours though :)!

Hey Shawna it was so fun to see you while you were here. I'd love to hear how the last half of your trip went...

By the way thanks for filling in for music for us on Sunday. You didn't think you'd actually just get to sit there and enjoy relief society did you:)
