Week in review...

Despite the truth in the previous post about my experiencing some serious spiritual warfare this past week, I did manage to squeeze in some fun...

Wednesday night Daveyboy and I went to a Blazer game:Our boys are doing good this year so far...they are a young team and it's been a "rebuilding" season for the last couple, but things are lookin' good. We've come along way from the days of good old "Gentle Giant" Sabonis, who used to be my Grandma and I's favorite player.

Side note - speaking of my Grandma, she wrote me a letter this week, and she made me crack up so hard I just have to share...she lives in a retirement community and goes to the community computer for her Internet use. She was writing about how she enjoys reading all our blogs and then says "I am in the process of harassing one of the managers to get the speakers put back so I can hear the video's while watching them. He keeps promising me he'll get to it. I don't know how long he can take my harassing. We'll find out."

Seriously, how funny is she?!? If you have ever wondered where all us Brown girls got our gumption from, there's your answer.


On Thursday we had our weekly dinner/The Office date with Dave's brother Tony and sister in law Risa. This week we had fondue!! Tony & Risa got us a fondue pot for Christmas, and we got to test it out for the first time this week....good stuff!!We had pork, steak, broccoli and potatoes along with several different dipping sauces. I also made this dip to eat while we were waiting for our food to cook. Even though The Office was a repeat, a good time was had by all.


Then Saturday I headed down to Salem to watch my little sister Emily in her school's production of Godspell.Isn't she so adorable?!?

After the play I excitedly asked my sister Vanessa and her boyfriend Shane if they wanted to go get ice cream. They were willing, but neither one seemed particularly enthused. I assured them I did not need a pity date and sent them on their merry way. I found Em and asked her if she wanted to go get ice cream, and was informed that the cast was going out to celebrate. She offered to bail on them, but once again, I was not looking for a pity-ice-cream-buddy.
But, my taste buds had been perked and ice cream was on the brain. So I drove thru Dairy Queen and got a medium peanut butter cup blizzard, and headed back to my mom's to eat it...all by my lonesome...




Don't cry for me Argentina, Emily walked in the door shortly after I got there stating she had ditched her super cool friends to hang out with her lame older sister instead. Isn't she the best??

We had a pajama party and then this morning four out of the five Brown girls met for breakfast.
Vanessa and Natalie.

Emily and I.
Three of my favorite ladies...my very favorite sweatshirt (it's two mushrooms carrying a beet and it says "we got the beet" on it. I have had it for years and it still cracks me up. Yes, I am approaching 30) ... a great cup of coffee...and yummy breakfast food... who could ask for anything more??

To top things off, on my way home to P-town, I stopped off and bought the CD that carries my new favoritest song on it...it makes me so happy! Here, have a listen:






Doesn't that just make you so happy?! I put it in the stereo in our living room when I got home and I may have made David dance with me... =)

Now back to the Superbowl. I am cheering for the Steelers. Dave played ball against Troy Polamalu in High School...granted, that was over 10 years ago and Troy probably wouldn't recognize Dave if they passed on the street today, but I like to pretend they are BFF.

Sounds like a great, victorious week! Can't say the same for myself, but thank you so much for your prayers! They really help me, knowing people I have never met are praying for Stuart and I. This is certainly the hardest journey I have ever been on, but I know one day...WE WILL BE VICTORIOUS!!!!!
