Scenes from the weekend

It was a busy one, full of preschool commitments, housework, grocery shopping and errand running. The boys and I built a giant Trio castle {Trios is sort of like Lego, have you heard of it?}, baked cupcakes for their upcoming Valentine's Day parties at school, went to my mom's to visit and play with the cousins. I went running twice and to the gym once, and enjoyed the compliments I got about looking trimmer {and like I've lost more than just the 4 lbs so far- hooray!} My sister and I made a big list of all the things we must do in NYC, and Mom booked us tickets to see Chicago on Broadway! On Sunday, Kelly {one of my dearest friends} called to say she was in town and did I want to meet her for tea? What a fabulous surprise that was, and yes, of course I did! It was the highlight of my weekend. What was yours?

And I was excited about my Stabucks cup!
