Happy Birthday Matt!

Let me tell you about this guy.......

He is the best husband, dad, son, cousin, brother, uncle, and friend out there.
Joey and I were lucky enough to call him a best friend but he was more like family.
His laugh would light up the room.
He is missed every single day by all of us. We love you Matt and will celebrate you everyday but especially today. Happy 32nd birthday!

Joey & Lynne

Summer is coming....

Which means sun, fun, soccer, whidbey, and bbq's. One more thing we are adding to the list is seeing VAMPIRE WEEKEND!! I am so excited. They have jumped to the top of the list as one of my favorite bands. I have been talking about wanting to see them for a long time and I said if they ever come to Seattle we have to go. So August 29th at Marymoor Park you can find us sitting on a blanket enjoying the sounds of these guys.

PS: I might have told Joey this concert was sold out so I could surprise him tonight with these tickets. He never reads the blog so he wont see this before I get home :)

Weekend Update

Joey and I had a great weekend. The weather in Seattle was perfect. We have been waiting for it to get nice here and it finally hit this weekend. Friday night we had dinner at PF Changs then just layed low. Saturday we woke up and took the ferry over to Whidbey Island for the day. Joey's Great Aunt and Uncle were celebrating there 50th wedding Anniversary on the island so we were headed over to see them and decided to make a day of it. It was so beautiful driving around. That night we had dinner with the Partridge's at our favorite Mexican restaurant a block from our house.
Sunday was Mother's Day. The weather again was amazing. We headed up to my brother's house for the day. I thought it was going to be a small gathering but it turned into a mini-party. I of course love a party so I am not going to complain :) Our good friend Rachel and her family were over celebrating the day with us. It was so fun to hang out with everyone and enjoy the beautiful weather.
Here are some pics from the ferry ride over to whidbey.

We had so much fun last week in Hawaii. First up we had my cousin Angela's wedding. It was a small intimate wedding on the beach followed by a reception at a restaurant near the Sheraton. We had a blast.
After that we just relaxed. The boys golfed and us ladies shopped. Here are some pics from our trip. We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo in Kaanapali with my parents, brother and his family.

sometimes, when things take longer than you thought they would, it's just a gentle reminder from your greatest self, that you have more time than you thought, and that there's a journey to enjoy...

...yeah, like all the time in the world...

I need to remind myself this because I personally get to caught up in things not happening when I want them instead of enjoying the process.

Worst Blogger EVER!

I really have sucked at blogging these days. Life has taken some unexpected turns for Joey and I and blogging has been the last thing on my mind. We are headed to Hawaii to see my cousin get married and when I get back I promise to be back to my regular scheduled updates. See you in a week!

Well nothing to exciting has been happening at our household these past few weeks. Joey has been working a lot and I have been relaxing around the house. We get pretty busy starting this weekend until May. I love being busy but love the downtime of January each year.
On another note yesterday started Lent. I was raised Catholic but I am not a practicing Catholic girl these days. One thing I do follow each year is Lent. I give up 2 things each year and this year I decided to give up the following

This is going to be hard but worth it in the end. Joey thinks its great that I do Lent each year but gets frustrated because I give up things that make it hard to have meals together. We are cheese people so giving that up will be very hard. 40 days! I can do it.
