California Dreamin...

So the last time Buck and I took an alone trip was to Cali as I told Tim and Melissa this weekend, they are about the only reason I voluntarily leave my children without my husband home. I truly love them.
Our pathetic attempt at a self-portrait on the plane...

Buck got REALLY creative and had my favorite, favorite, favorite food in the entire universe FLOWN out to California--that would be Giordano's deep-dish pizza. Yep, Chicago pizza in Los Angeles. It was Melissa's first experience and it was a hit. Way to go Buck. Big points for him. Big. :)

The closest Buck will probably EVER get to driving an Aston Martin. Yep, that's a kinda fancy expensive little car there. Sitting in Melissa's parents' garage. It's her mom's everyday car. I told her I wanted her to see my mini-van where the breaks squeak. :)

Enjoying a little quiet time in Paradise (also known as Melissa's parents' backyard). Fun times...

Seriously 2 of our most favorite people in the whole wide world. Love them love them love them. Oh and the dog too. :) Great weekend, great friends, great memories.
Somehow in the goofing around with the pictures, I deleted my signature. Oops. I'm smart like that. While I loved the time away, it was so good to be home and back to my monkeys. It's where I'm supposed to be. Ready for my last day of work on Friday. My last weekend of call over Memorial Day weekend. Crazy to imagine, but good. And thankfully, miraculously (and thanks to my string-pulling business partner) I have an appointment with a neurologist a week from Wednesday. I'm planning on turning over a new leaf in more ways than just on the job front. We shall see! Much love to all~Laura Joy
