I've been searching for a black long sweater but most dusters are too long on my 5'2 frame.  I finally found a nice lightweight one at Zappos.

I will have to get a good picture of the back because it's so pretty.
Pants, old lacy tank from B.R. similar ones, Top Sider loafers.

April Highlights

We took Aaron to his first Cirque show.  We went to Totem. You can preview it here:
Also, I got to wear
this to a friend's 40th Moulin Rouge birthday party:

Pictures from the artist's website

Also, wouldn't it be fun to get photographed by this group?

I got to run this great race:
here and I set a new record-1:46!-about 8 minutes a mile-yea.

Aaron started spring soccer and spring football.
Here he is celebrating a captured flag:

I got to spend Easter weekend with the family.

I found some great spring items!
This great sweater I had my eye on went on sale.

This-paired it with my new leather converse, leggings and a tunic after my long run for a comfy look.

Loved this top.

I've been trading my winter boots for fun sneakers lately.  I finally added
these to my collection. 

Still loving these

And these are my absolute favorite right now:

Last week of April

What a wonderful week. I got some great workouts in. My running buddy and I had a great run and we couldn't believe our entire run was dry. It started pouring as soon as we finished.  Thank you God for our dry run.

I got to attend a wonderful art show. My friend Michelle created such beautiful art!

Dave and I enjoyed a great dinner at Portland City Grill. Dave got into the top sales group again through his company and was celebrated there.

My whole body hurts from our P90x workouts but I sure love them. You can find the videos here.

Loving Stripes

I'm loving stripes lately. There's always lots to be found around spring time too. Gap had this great one I picked up (here)

I liked it so much I got the pink too.

Easter Sunday

We had a wonderful Easter Sunday at my parent's house.  The kids had a great time with the egg hunt. My Dad had such an inspiring sermon at church!  Plus, Mom cooked an amazing brunch and dinner even though she was sick!

Mama and Me

Cousin Randy and Dave as big bunnies

Cousin Melissa and Jenny

We got to celebrate sister Shelly's birthday too.

Later that night Kelley and Tracie came and made us a wonderful seafood feast!  We pretty much ate all day.  The Blazers won their first game in the playoffs too.  What a great day.

Easter Baskets

I had such fun putting together Easter baskets for Aaron and his Cousins Calvin (age 4) and Wesley (1).  Here's a peek.

Aaron gets this basket with a chocolate bunny and ears plus the new Skylanders Swap Force game.

Baby Wesley got this soft bunny, book and little bunny car.

And for Wesley, this collectible Batman figure and chocolate bunny with ears. Sister Shelly is doing a fun egg hunt after church too with the eggs the kids decorated:)

I did little baskets for the sisters too. Both got this skirt and this top.  Perfect things for spring.
