Awesome Weekend

The Boy came down to visit for the weekend - so nice.  It was kind of a packed weekend and included:

The Hobbit
Sonoran Hot Dogs & Horchata
Botanical Gardens
Ethiopian Cuisine
Old Spanish Mission & gorgeous dusk
Hootenanny with a Washboard Tie
Brazilian Cuisine (with my former roommate who is Brazilian - she's amazing)
Bigger-than-a-plate Pancake (with potatoes in the batter)

So packed that I'm still exhausted (which I think you can tell from the pic that was taken before he went back home).  :)

Strawberries and Birthdays

Well, I've made it longer in this relationship than one of the predictions - hopefully I'll make it way longer - like, forever.  Wouldn't that be nice?  He's sure a sweetheart.  I got chocolate covered strawberries in the mail this week.  One of my roommates suggested that everyone in our house get long-distance boyfriends so that we can have chocolate covered strawberries every night.  :)  When things seem too good to be true, it's my experience that they are, so I'm kind of nervous, but it will sure be nice if there's an exception to that rule.

In other news, when I arrived at my sister's last weekend (on my way back home from visiting the boy), the first thing my niece said when I went inside was, "Jamie, I just love you so much!"  Something like that, and she repeated it a couple of times.  Later, when I snuck to her room to try to read the scriptures, she and her brother found me and climbed up beside me on the bed.  Their mom found them and asked if they were letting me do what I was trying to do.  "Mom, we just like Jamie!" my niece replied.  It's her birthday tomorrow, and I want her to know

I just love you, Em!!  Happy Birthday!

The last four years she has been such a source of joy - my little sunshine.

My Boy

So, this is my boy.  He thinks he likes me, isn't that nice?  I'm scared and unsure of myself, as usual, but so far he's patient.  We don't live near each other, which STINKS, but he's coming to visit in a couple of weeks.  :)
