I’m seriously looking forward to a relaxing weekend with lots of family time. We are celebrating my cousin’s 18th birthday tomorrow, which is kind of crazy to me because I feel like she was just born yesterday and now she’s off to college in a few weeks. Where does the time go?! I can’t imagine how I’m going to feel when Little Miss turns 18…I’m just going to pretend that’s never going to happen!

2. Favorite thing I did this week
Had a fun lunch date with my “little” brother Mike on Sunday. I have to put quotes around little because although he may be my younger baby brother, he’s 6’8, so he’s not exactly little 😉 .
It’s rare that we get to spend a lot of one-on-one time together these days, so I really cherish time alone with him. It was a great time! I’m kicking myself for not getting a picture of our bro & sis lunch date though, dang it!
