so....I am in an event planning class at BYU and I am loving it. We are planning an event for March 5th at the kids on the move building in orem. It is going to be an event centered around healthy sleeping habits since it is sleep awareness week!  there are going to be health snacks, crafts, story telling, and a presentation by the chief nutritionist for Doterra, a company specializing in essential oils that help you sleep. I'm super excited and it should be really fun! It's from 6:30-8:30 on March 5th! If anyone wants to come it is free of charge and will be lots of fun!!!

Valentine's Day = 14 hour work day

So, for Valentines Day we decided to work to make money as opposed to spend it because we knew the restaurant would be busy. there was a 4 1/2 hour wait! it was ridiculous! As much as working sucked, I GOT A TRIP TO SAN FRANCISCO FOR VALENTINES DAY! I am so excited, it is the best present ever! We are going in April for a long weekend! And tonight we celebrated with a trip to the rack and chipotle, it was perfect. And I made sugar cookies and it was the highlight of my week. Trevor's mom was here and it was a weekend of being spoiled! My poor mom was sick the week before and I felt so bad but I was happy I got to take care of her! San Francisco here I come!

A Weekend With Mom :)

So, this past weekend my mom came to visit. I had been looking forward to this since she told me! She came thursday and stayed up until midnight, it was quite a surprise! then Friday was the greatest mom and daughter day ever! we got up at 10:30 got our nails done, went to lunch, went to the mall, PF Changs, and then rented a movie, got ice cream, and just hung out together! We then went to Logan to see family and hang out. We got there before Trevor and little Avery proceeded to tell me "Trevor is coming, he is such a funny guy, he calls me peanut butter" (long story) and Ally could barely contain herself when she saw him in the driveway. They somehow love him more but thats okay i guess. we had to come home sunday and my mom stayed in Logan and will come back down thursday for another day of fun before she drives home :(. i have decided having my mom come is the highlight of my life, oh how i miss her! Trevors mom comes friday and we will have another weekend of fun!!

So, needless to say the Tripp family is devastated by the recent Australian Open results. I need my nine hours of sleep so i desperately tried to stay up to watch the 1:30 a.m. matches but when 2 o'clock came around I was out for the count. Little did I know, while I was sleeping Trevor stayed awake until 7:30 in the morning watching the match, only to find that nadal had won. He claimed he couldn't possibly sleep knowing that the match was going on. We love Nadal, don't get me wrong, but Fed is a class act. After he destroyed Andy, who is now a joke, and Nadal played for something like 6 hours with Verdasco (Trev likes his Fo-hawk) we thought Fed could take him. And now that it is all over, what will watch all day long? Wait until the French open, sad day!
