strep

So we have strep. It's one thing after another, but I have found comfort in watching Gilmore Girl re-runs. We only have seasons five and six, and I'm almost done with six...I'm pretty sure we need to buy the whole series. I really, really love that show (and W likes it too).

I was going to make a nice Easter Dinner yesterday and have my brother over but since we were sick we had to cancel. We were pretty bummed about it. Then a nice family in our ward brought us plates of Easter dinner, which we were so grateful for. We know a lot of wonderful people and we're grateful for them.

My Internet is working beautifully now so I can share some pictures of the book I made Lindsey and Dylan. It is super simple because 1) Simple is my style. 2) I started this book at 12:30am and finished at 6am the night before flying to Utah for the wedding. The first few pages are the sign-in pages, which you can see on the table next to the book. Throughout the rest of the book, I left room for them to write stuff, and there are pages which aren't pictured that allow for them to write about the bridal showers, wedding day, and honeymoon, and extra pages so they can add more pictures. (Click on the pictures to see them bigger.)













I took these pictures of the book displayed at the reception so the lighting wasn't the best and there is a glare on some of the pages, but you get the idea.

Back to Gilmore Girls...

I love seeing all about Lindsey's wedding. They are adorable. What a great book you made! I'm sorry you've been so sick. I had bronchitis for two weeks & it was rough, but nothing like you've had. Get lots of liquids & sleep. Have fun catching up on things you can't do while you're in school. =)
