Brynlee went to nursery this past Sunday for the second "official" week. The week before I stayed with her for the first 1/2hr, then she stayed happily for another45mins or so, then the nursery worker had to bring her to me b/c she was screaming hysterically...she does this sometimes...or a lot :) So, I wasn't sure how the next Sunday would go, but she did GREAT!! She RAN to go to nursery and we lifted her over the baby gate and she never looked back! I was shocked! I kept waiting to hear screaming or see them bring her back to me, but they never did! And she was happy when I picked her up....amazing! You nursery workers are saints! Let's hope she continues this behavior. She really is becoming much more social, which is so fun to see considering some people at church can't seam to forget how ANTI-social she was as an infant. She's a cutie!!
So, I emailed Chick-fil-a about the chicken bone Carson found in his chicken nugget and they responded with this:
Dear Ms. Loveridge:

I was happy to get a speedy response to my concern, but laughed when they asked me to ship them the chicken bone. My sister had told me they would probably ask for it, but who the heck wraps up a nasty chewed on chicken bone and sticks it in their purse...not me! Oh well, I told them i didn't have it anymore and thanked them for their response. Now I'm interested to see what these Chick-fil-A CARES guest cards are that they are sending me...I hope it's like a million free meals....j/k...I'll take whateva! Thanks Chick-fil-A!!
....or not (but Dan, you can still kiss me). We had a great St. Patty's Day yesterday! Carson had fun festivities at preschool (thanks to Mary) complete with talking about leprechauns and eating green frosted cupcakes. Then 4 of us moms ventured over to Chic-Fil-A for a fun lunch date with all 10 of our children...it went remarkably well. Well, besides the 2 inch bone Carson found in his chicken nugget. When I saw him gnawing on it he said "I thought it was a chicken wing". I wasn't the best complainer at the restaurant (b/c I was laughing b/c the lady that refilled my drink told me to take my top off, she met lid of the drink, but she kept saying "take your top off" and i couldn't help but giggle, how long can you go on writing in parenthesis anyway, is there some rule in the English language about it?), so I wrote a little email when I got home to the management about it. Anyway, it was a great time with awesome friends. Then later that night we had our St. Patrick's Day dinner. We had green jello and hamburger pie with green beans in it and i also turned the mashed potatoes green. They pretty much looked like green play dough, but tasted fine. Later that evening, my friend Mary Jean and I went to a get together for BYU College of Nursing Alum in the area b/c the Dean was in town for a meeting. It was a lot of fun to meet other BYU nursing alumni and see what everyone was up to. It was also fun to see this woman's very large, very nice, easily a million dollar home! At the end of the evening the woman who's home it was asked me if I knew a Wanda Loveridge. I said "yes, that's my mother in law!". She said that they graduated from BYU nursing together in the 60's. It's always a small world in the Mormon world! It was a really fun evening!
In the last few months I've discovered Craigslist. I haven't sold anything on it or bought anything from it, but I've been obsessed with looking at it. Now especially since we're buying a house, it's fun to look at cheap things to furnish it. I also am obsessed with the idea of refurbishing something...like a dresser or a chair or something! I've never done this before either, but it seams like it would be fun. Have any of you done this before, and if so, where did you learn how to??? Do I need to get books from the library? Look online? I want to learn how to repaint something, but I also think it would be fun to reupolster a chair or something too....am I going crazy?!?!?! Any ideas?
....WE GOT A HOUSE!!!! What an emotional roller coaster this has been!! I am so excited to say that we finally got one. I know, we haven't actually been looking THAT long for houses, but we've been trying super hard. This was the SIXTH offer we put on a house, all of which we were overbidding on...talk about a tough market! If everything works out, we'll be closing on this house in a month! This one is so nice, here are the stats, good and bad....but, mostly good :)
4 years old 4 bedrooms upstairs 2.5 baths 1 fireplace 1 cute mud room 1 big backyard .26 acre lot 2 car garage cool stone/rock on bottom of house 1 long driveway 0 sidewalks (this makes me very sad) 1 unfinished basement (actually the framing/plumbing is done, so it's half finished. We're going to check into finishing it off soon.) nice neighborhood, there's a playground and there's suppose to be a pool somewhere less than 1 mile from brand new WEGMANS! close to super Target and lots of other shopping less than .5 miles to Elementary school all schools rated really good about 30-40mins from Dan's work 5 mins from church bummer left turn, with no light, out to busy street from neighborhood (hopefully won't be too bad) empty lot next to ours. fun to play in now, maybe construction some time in the future. less than 1 mile from WEGMANS....oh wait, did I already say that?
