Last night I was laying around thinking that I ought to take a minute to write down my "bucket list". It isn't because I'm feeling like my time is any more limited, or because I'm "wishing for greener pastures", I'm just a firm believer that the first step to seeing dreams and goals realized is to write them down. So here it is.
Before I die (or get too old) I want to:
-visit a crayon factory.
-ride in a hot air balloon
- Attend all major sporting events: Super Bowl, World Series, NBA finals, World Cup, Olympic games (check), U.S. Open, Kentucky Derby, etc.
- When and if I get to attend the Kentucky Derby, I want to wear a gigantic hat.
- Eat at each of the Iron Chef's restaurants
-Be in the audience for an episode of Iron chef America (this, I hear, is not possible since only friends and family of the chef's are allowed in the audience, but nothing is EVER impossible, right?)
-Get a nursing degree
-Go to Greece
-Read the Old Testament
-Be completely debt free
-Take my parents on a trip
-Take Kimball's parents on a trip
-Own a scrapbook retreat business (with my dear friend Kathy!)
-Go on a mission with Kimball
-Raise successful well-rounded, kind, loving, humble, smart children
Some may happen, some may not, I hate to think it, but maybe none of them will happen, but even so its good to know I'll always have support from those that love me!

We do a lot of sleeping and napping...whether or not its actually in our bed is apparently up for debate. Sleeping in a big boy bed is hard sometimes...
FHE we set out pillows and blankets on the patio and had pizza and watched "The Prince of Egypt"
And we've done even more of this....Mya is doing flips from one pool to the next, always with her trusty "air suit" which she frequently comes to me and says "Mom I have a wedgie"...lovely.
We've gone to a few city events, farmer's markets, pick your own blueberries, annual weiner dog races (post to come dont you worry), taken in the beautiful country, gone on walking trails, gone to a few different parks, Kimball wants to go take a tour of the nuclear plant down the road.
All in all its pretty quiet, but we're together and that will always be our favorite place to be.

My deareast Kimball, We have waited for this day for so long, and I couldn't be prouder of you. I'm so happy our children will have you to look up to as an example of someone who is hardworking, diligent, faithful, smart, and good. I'm confident these attributes will help you be a wonderful physician and surgeon. Thank you for putting us first. In the words of another kind of Doctor, "...And will you succeed? Yes! You will indeed! 98 and 3/4% guaranteed. You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! You're mountain is waiting. So..get on your way!". Love you. Holly
The After Party!

After lunch we went and drove the 5k course my sisters and I are running for Race for the Cure, which was sponsored by my Grandmother a living, breathing,(allbeit boobless) survivor of breast cancer, we love her and we're gonna run our fannies off to help find a cure so EVERYONE can survive this awful disease.
Then in honor of Cinco de Mayo we had delicious fajitas, and tres leche cake. All in all I feel refreshed, recharged, and ready for whatever comes next!
