A few weeks ago, we got to celebrate the birthday of one very special Valentine! Our sweet niece, Brooklyn, turned 2-years-old this Valentine’s Day, and we celebrated with her friends and family at Varsity Donuts in Manhattan, Kansas. I think a donut decorating party is definitely one of my favorite party themes of all time! Probably because I’ m a bit of a donut freak, but that being said, I think this party was a hit for everyone who attended. I feel endlessly lucky to have such a fun family! Happy birthday, sweet Brooklyn!
We spent Valentine’s Day out of town, as we are lucky enough to have a cute little Valentine’s birthday girl in the family! We ate cake, chocolates and made wishes on candles. I was even spoiled with a few fun gifts, including a new charm bracelet that Trent and Lu put together for me and this t-shirt, which is pretty amazing! Hope your day was full of love and light, I know mine was!

This week I’ve been lucky enough to see some of my best friends that I haven’t seen in WAY too long. You know those people that just get you, even when you haven’t seen them in months or years? The ones who understand the weird language that comes out of your mouth, when no one else understands what the heck you’re talking about? Yeah, I got to hang out with those people and they make everything awesome. I saw this video last week and thought to myself, I’m gonna make the girls do this with me over the holiday…did it happen? You’ll just have to wait and see. Until then, enjoy, smile and call your best friend. They probably miss you too!
I was browsing on Hulu the other day and saw this fantastic web series called Stiller and Meara, which features Ben Stiller’s parents, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara. The two are both comedians who have been married for almost 60 years, and became famous as a comedy duo on the 1960s and 1970s, doing appearances on TV like The Ed Sullivan Show. The new series was taped a few years ago, and the two cover topics from Lindsay Lohan to Unemployment Insurance. I can only hope in 50 or 60 years I’ll still be as funny as these two…well, I’m probably not that funny today, but that’s not the point. Enjoy a little bit of Stiller and Meara!
