When I touched down in Phoenix and turned on my cell phone, this text message from my brother popped up:
Best greeting ever! Best breakfast ever. Oh, and best brother ever, too! I arrived before 8AM that day, so even though I was tired, it was nice to have the whole day to hang out. And I actually got a lot done that day- errands with my brother, visiting my grandma, visiting my aunt, and lunch with some family friends that I used to babysit for.
Over the weekend, I managed to meet up with several other friends and had a great time catching up with everyone. My mom and I also managed to fit in a serious shopping spree. I also finally got to meet my friend's twins that were born on my birthday! All the best people are born on March 15! They're adorable and totally gave me baby fever.
|I got twins for my birthday. What did you get?|
I also got to spend some quality time with my parents' mini dachshunds, Lola and Roxy, and my most favorite pet in the world- Tank. Have I ever mentioned that I basically had a pet dinosaur growing up? Well, that's basically what Tank reminds me of. He's a desert tortoise, and he's probably one of the coolest pets ever- plus, he is seriously GIANT. I really think he must weigh like 30 pounds. Doesn't he just looks so prehistoric? I'm telling you- basically dinosaur status!

|Tank enjoying a salad. Also, I am not stepping on him, I promise- just trying to get a photo with something to reference his size|
All in all, it was a great visit home. I pretty much checked everything and everyone off my list, and now I'm anxious to get back to Houston and my hubby!
