As he was leaving, I said, "Goodbye sir, have a nice night!" and he said, "You have a nice night too. And many more nice nights. Whenever someone says to have a nice night, I tell them to have many more nice nights too. Because we should all make the choice to have nice days and nights!"
I just thought this was so nice...because really, no matter what happens each day, we really all should just choose to have a nice day and night anyway!
He told me he was over 70 years old and that he has never missed a day of work in 23 years because he never gets sick, and he attributes that to his good attitude. He was so sweet, and said that he made a goal when he was 4 years old to live to be the oldest person alive! Anyway, I just thought it was refreshing to have someone so cheery and kind!

RJ: "Summer's great...."
You know sometimes you just need one of those stay-in-your-PJs-all-day kind of days? It's been great! I'll admit I almost have to force myself to really be lazy for THAT long...but alas, the next day I always feel so much better and actually LIKE getting ready and doing errands or something!

Has anyone tried these?! They are SO good...I bought a pack of ten mini bags, mixed caramel and cheddar cheese....and both kinds are SO good, and only 100 calories. They're a great little snack, perfect when you want something salty or sweet! Anyway, I'm officially addicted...(and Quaker should be paying me for this...)

We decided before we were married that we would go on a trip every year when school gets out, just us two. Then once we have kids, we'll go on a family trip too each summer. For anniversaries, we decided to trade years planning the destination. So, this year, I took charge! I wanted to go somewhere super cool....Hawaii? Figi? Bahamas? Cozumel?
Yeah, we ended up in Lava Hot Springs! Haha, super exotic, I know! We figured we'll work up to the fancier destinations!
So, it was a surprise...R.J. fell asleep on the drive and woke up in the middle-of-nowhere, Idaho...he was so confused! Anyway, we had a lot of fun...neither of us had ever been there. We ate at a yummy steakhouse, and stayed in a cute bed and breakfast.....it was a fun, quick little trip for us. Sorry, no pics, I forgot my camera!
But...when we got home we ate our cake from our wedding. Ok, has anyone had luck with this cute little tradition?! Ours was disgusting and soggy! We had it in an airtight rubbermaid container...apparently not such a good idea! Oh well, still fun!
OK...so R.J.'s birthday was clear back in May! I'm a horrible wife, I know! But don't fret, we celebrated on the day of, it's just that the blogging of the event is coming months later!
