Country Roads

I went for a visit home during the last week in March. My trips home always seem to go by quickly and this one went extremely quick because there was quite a bit going on. 

My niece greeted me @ the airport with a BIG hug and kiss and then she was able to spend a few days @ the house with us. While she was there, we dyed Easter eggs together. She is so much fun.

My friend is getting married in St. Thomas in May (another exciting trip to look forward to) and I am the Matron of Honor so I threw her a bridal shower while I was home. It was fun seeing everyone and I'll see them all again in about a month.

All the ladies

Saturday & Sunday I was @ my sister's house. We watched WV play in the NCAA tournament, had a baptism for my nephew, and celebrated my niece's 3rd birthday. 
They got a bunny for Easter. Poor bunny..It probably wishes another house would've bought it instead after spending a few hours with Brooklyn. 
 With my sister cheering for the Mountaineers!
Happy Birthday Brooklyn!
 She wanted to paint my nails : ) 
Mommy & Ryan. It's great to be eight!!

I love my trips home and the time I get to spend with my family. I miss every single one of them so much.

Let's Go...
 Most of those that will read this will either: 1) have no clue as to what I am talking about or 2) will not have the same amount of enthusiasm as I have right now. Either way, it's okay, I still feel the need to blog.
I've always loved my home state of WV and now that I've moved away, I think I love it even more.  In about 45 minutes, the Mountaineers will be playing in the final four of the NCAA tournament in hopes of moving on to play for the national title and I will be watching every minute of that game. Yes! I do get into the games. Yes! I do scream and yell at the television. Yes! I do get very nervous and can hardly stand to watch at times. Yes! I love college basketball. Rob thinks I'm crazy, but I think deep down he finds it to be cute. Ha! Although I can't be in WV sitting in the living room watching this game with my family, I will be wearing the blue & gold, showing my support, and cheering on the Mountaineers because.. It's a great day to be a Mountaineer wherever you are.
