news from my world

My sweet little Goobie is sick. She has this really bad chest cough that is painful to hear. I took her to urgent care yesterday but the doctor there just said it is viral so there is not much they could do.
I have been giving her lots of fluids, oranges, and chicken noodle soup, and of course TLC. Have you ever had "Simply Orange" orange juice? It is the best! We dont usually buy it because it is kind of expensive, but we always get it when one of us is sick. When we lived in Salt Lake and someone was sick we would always go to Jamba Juice and get them a "Cold Buster". I miss Jamba Juice!

So, I was really bored yesterday and decided to go to the Salvation Army thrift store to kill some time. Before I left I promised my husband I wouldn't come back with any useless crap we didn't need.
I returned with a plastic gumdrop tree. Never been used.
But come on, wouldn't this thing look awesome at a child's birthday party? I had never seen one of these before, and at $2 I couldn't resist!

But the thing I am most excited about is........
...our masks for the upcoming masquerade ball have come in the mail!!!! I don't know if I mentioned this before, but a few months ago I noticed in the community bulletin that the art museum was having a masquerade ball! And, it is only $15 a couple! Got to love college towns....
I bought a GORGEOUS dress last week at a consignment shop. When I put it on I feel like a million bucks, which is a rare and awesome feeling for me. I don't think that Chris is as excited about this as I am, but he is being a really good sport. We have never been on a "fancy" date. The only time we have been this formal together was our wedding. I am just hoping and praying that neither of us gets sick, or that nothing else happens that would stop us from going. It just seems like usually when I really have my heart set on something, it doesn't work out. But I don't think that anything could get in the way of me going to this thing (unless maybe I lost my arms in a freak laundry accident. But then I would probably still go)!

Love you all. Happy Valentines Day!!!!!

Lisa, I was seriously laughing SO HARD at your gumdrop tree purchase. "I promised my husband I wouldn't return with any useless crap.... I bought a gumdrop tree." HILARIOUS! LMAO!!!!!!!

On a different note, I hope your sweet daughter feels better soon!

The masquerade ball sounds fun. I'm glad you're looking forward to it!
