A Present For Dinner

I got home around 7:15 this evening after a particularly stressful day of work. I actually left work at 4:15, went home, got B, took him to football practice, took A to the bank to cash her check, took
her home, ate a quick snack, then headed back to work for math night. By the time I got home I was tired, hungry, stressed out, needed a beer, and I still have packing to do.
A and J made dinner, thankfully, and when I went to sit at the table there was a little box on my placemat and this was the necklace inside! I can't believe they remembered. At one time, I was looking at jewelry on the internet and found a site called She makes these super-cute stamped charms with little chinese paper lanterns and you can have them personalized. My family ordered one for me just in time to have it for China. Isn't it cute?!
So nice to have a suprise after a rough day. We leave for China on Friday! I can't wait!


  1. Beautiful! I am anxiously watching your travel. We will be traveling for a 3 year old also. She is 2 and will turn 3 November 25th. I am watching to see what you pack for her. I have two 5 year olds and I can't believe I can't remember what they needed at 3. Our daughter is potty trained day and night so I don't think I will need diapers. Are you bringing sippy cups? I think I need to go back and read my blog to see what mine were doing at 3.

  2. Oh, I almost forgot. Will you be posting from blogger?

  3. It is Friday now, so I hope everything goes smoothly today.
