our trip to South Dakota and this week!

Ben and I both took a week off of work and hit the road for South Dakota to see (and me meet) his family.

Saturday (the 9th) was Ben's 30th birthday. His Mom planned a surprise birthday party for him and a lot of his family and friends attended. He was really surprised, it was a lot of fun.

While we were there, we visited the Corn Palace

We learned all about farming/ranching and seeds. We also learned all about the sand mines. It was interesting to learn all the facts that go with those jobs. It's a ton of work.

It was so great meeting Ben's family and them pulling me in like I was part of the family. I can't wait to see them all again!!

We ended up leaving on Thursday because there was a snow storm coming through that night. We missed it!!!!

This week is super busy! I somehow tweaked my back within the last 2 weeks and see a lot of Chiro appts with David in my future. haha.

Wednesday is my second ALS meeting for the Walk to Defeat 2011.

Thursday and Friday, I am working at my Church, Irving Bible (, for Easter events.

Saturday, our brand new deep freeze is being delivered

and then that evening I am hosting a birthday party for Ben.

Sunday, working at the Church again, then heading to the Texas Rangers game for Ben's birthday present.

What I'm loving Wednesday!

I got this idea from this blog and thought it would be something fun to do to break up the week.

I am loving that I have 2 more work days left and then I am on vacation for a week.

I am loving that I get to meet the rest of Ben's family.

I am loving that my sister in law trusts me to call and talk, and that we can talk without judgement being passed on either side.

I am loving that my nephew (Declin) is healthy and recovering from his surgery last week.

What are you loving on this day?
