When I was younger I remember being told on several occasions that the older you get, the faster time goes. I remember thinking that was the most ridiculous thing I'd ever heard. Well... it's true! Unfortunately. The weekends fly by. The year is flying by. The twins are already one, crawling and standing on their own. I'm THIRTY, I mean when did that happen?! And now it's Monday. Again! At least I made the most of the weekend. :)

I hope everyone had a relaxing Sunday with their fathers. I'm already looking ahead at my four day work week! No relaxing to be had this week or weekend. My to-do list is bursting with tons of last minute things to accomplish for my best friend's bridal shower this Saturday. I even took Friday off so that I would have plenty of time to get everything just right for her party. I haven't been able to share many details since she reads this blog so I'm looking forward to the post next week. There's nothing I love more than throwing a party!
Back to Dad though - last night was another amazing dinner with family and friends at my parent's house. Followed up with lots of great gifts for my dad. Our usual way of celebrating, great food and great gifts. My dad loved his shirt, which I picked up on Etsy at a neat shop called Vital. If you or someone that you know is a bike enthusiast, it's worth checking out. I think what my Dad really loved was his tupperware wrapped in a towel. Yes, I got my Dad tupperware - it's one of those things and I didn't have any non-girly/wedding wrapping paper! He said that in all his years of unwrapping gifts, he'd never had one wrapped in a towel. I like to be an original!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday with their fathers! My dad and I will be celebrating tonight with dinner. Cooked by my mother of course because I'm not so hot in the kitchen. I'll be bringing a surprise dessert though! Which is really the way to my Dad's heart anyways. :) Pretty much anyone, guys and girls, who meet my father think he's just the cutest. For those of you in the blogverse who won't ever have the opportunity to meet him IRL, I thought these photos might do him justice. Taken recently at a race course that was rented for the day, my Dad got to drive a friend's GT at 135 mph! He's a bit of a racing/car enthusiast and it seems he was in heaven!
Love you Dad!
