Well, I've been having fun the past few days. Which makes the stomach bug, which I'm experiencing now, a major bummer. Plus, this is the one night each year that gains an hour, which makes it the longest night of the year to be up running back and forth to the bathroom--major major bummer.

We had a good day. But Saturday was really what I've been looking forward to ever since I found out what my dear husband had planned for us:
