Eyes on April

This month is a big one for spectating. Here are a few things we'll be watching...
  • Ball games. Jake's, Em's and, of course, the NCAA Championships. Brad is ready to rip up his March Madness bracket worksheet. His picks have not fared well.
  • I-95. As we drive north for Spring Break. Easter in Boston. Warm and sunny? Probably not. But we're excited anyway.
  • General Conference. The trail mix is ready. The couch is ready. I am ready--for inspiration.
  • The Kentucky Derby. A grown-ups only trip, courtesy of the new company. Brad will be watching the horses. I will be watching for celebrities in fancy hats.
  • Ecclesiastical Excitement. We're getting a new Bishop at church. And the Relief Society President is moving. All you Mormons out there know this is much more exciting than any horserace. Too bad they don't pass out bracket worksheets. I've got my Final Four picks all ready...

Gab, I feel worried for you. You know why.

I-95 traffic jams, oh the memories. Can't wait for the Kentucky Derby play by play, sounds fun.

I loved your comment about bracket worksheets. So true. You are so clever!

Uh...I think I know what Celia meant...If I am right about what she meant I would like to add this...

Be very afraid. You and your husband are awesome...be very afraid.

Please take loads of pictures at the Kentucky Derby. The fashion will be fabulous.

I'm good at speculating...

Don't worry, Celia. I'm pretty sure no one here is in the Final Four.

Just don't answer the phone if you see the stake president on your caller ID.

Just come up here and visit me-I'll corrupt you and then you'll be safe.

Gabi...never, ever say that. You're doomed now.

Can't wait to see all the Derby stuff, do they make Mint Juleps virgin?

Well, I don't know who your bishop is going to be, but I totally called the new Apostle. I'm feeling pretty proud of myself. Too bad I couldn't have found a conference bookie...
