I found GREAT deals at Old Navy yesterday and today Riley enjoyed 'trying on' all the clothes. - Basically she would put each item on her head and grin at me!

Chris and I had a long needed date night tonight, we went for dinner and then to a WONDERFUL frozen yogurt shop. - Of course we forgot to take a picture and so we took one while watching Survivor last night!

Went to the zoo today with friends! We had a great time but Riley was tuckered out by the end of it. - I enjoyed all the walking, 37 weeks now so I'm doing all the walking I can! :-)

Today I got to see my wonderful friend Chelsea after months of her being away! It was so great. I also had another thing that made me excited today, so I'm doing two pictures. 

I have been thinking about getting new shoes for about 6 months now and I decided to get them and they came in the mail today! VERY excited!

Today I went to our new catalogue launch event. - Won a prize and got to escape an evening with an apparently VERY cranky little girl... I won on both fronts! :-)

April 15th, 2012

Sunday's always throw off Riley's schedule, but today seemed to bug her particularly much. - This is her eating her first food since breakfast, exhausted from no nap, at 9:00 at night. Poor girl, hope she sleeps in!

This girl sure loves her Daddy, and her Daddy sure loves her! - So thankful to have these two in my life, I'm so blessed. 

April 13th, 2012

Today is a tiny cheat as I didn't take this picture, but today we went and watched Rachel's choir perform and I was so proud of her! - She shared her testimony AND sang a solo without crying! (For a Thorne that is QUITE the feat!) She did such a great job and I think my tears made up for her strength! :-)

This picture represents a first for Riley. - She has not been a climber thus far and I've not been sad about that. Today I turned around and she was on the chair. She proceeded to climb up and down for about 45 minutes.

After being out all weekend Riley had a pretty tough day! - This glassy expression is what I got for most of the day, when she wasn't crying... Good thing she's so cute!
