Go ahead and smile.

It's been a good week around here. Lots of smiling. Bunches of laughs. And even the time that I started crying in the middle of my Pilates class (I was feeling blue about my mom and then a sappy song by Carrie Underwood came on about visiting her mom's grave) made me laugh. Who cries during Pilates?

Steve and I got to go to a really nice wedding reception on Saturday. We've had lots of friends get married. We've been to some nice receptions. But this was at a whole other level of niceness. They even had a photo booth to take your picture in. You got to keep one and you put one in a wedding album for the bride and groom. So fun. And yes. We did it. We also had a very nice london broil. I *may* have even had two pieces of cake.

The kids have made me smile this week.

They have played together nicely. Obeyed well. Even pitched in around the house. WITHOUT. BEING. ASKED.

Turner just makes me smile all the time. Who is this kid? He looks like an 80 year old grandpa stuck in a 2 year old body.

I'm going to a party tonight for Mommy Bloggers. The Ultimate Mom's Night Out is co-hosted by my friend Jenny and a blog (wish she was my friend in real life) friend, Kate, and another friend of theirs, Tricia. There will be fun friends, food, giveaways. Yay for me.

And then tomorrow we are off to Toledo. Saturday is my 20th high school reunion. Thanks to Facebook, I've reconnected with a ton of girls and am really looking forward to reuniting with my old *group.* Lots to smile about.

Glad you've had lots to smile about E! It sure helps to have kids around when you're grieving, doesn't it? The reunion is sure to be lots o fun. I was looking at the yearbooks and laughing so hard! Can't wait to see you and the whole fam!!

They had one of these photo booths in Daytona for Senior Send Off & while we were there I decided this is definitely something I'm going to have at my wedding. Don't worry, you and Steve will be invited. I'll let you know about the date when I set one..and when there's a guy to marry.

Your photobooth picture with Steve is so cute! I'm glad you guys had a good time...I'm just sorry I didn't get to see you more! Everyone always told me how hard it is to get around and see everyone when you are the bride, but it's so true. It was so good to see you even for just a split second. Hopefully we get a chance to catch up soon!
