This past week was just a two day work week due to Spring Break for the childcare center I teach at. As a somewhat last minute decision, like beginning of the month decision, I flew to my hometown to surprise my parents. Specifically, I surprised my mom for her birthday but my dad didn't know I was coming either.
I arrived Wednesday, late morning, and stayed at my good friends house. After visiting my old job on Thursday, I headed to my moms work to bring her flowers. It was so much fun to surprise her! Yes, I made her bawl and it was wonderful. Haha! She promised not to tell my dad so, later that evening, I met them for dinner and got to surprise him too. SO cool!
The rest of the week flew by way too quickly. I crammed in coffee dates and drove around town a bit to soak it all in. The weather was AMAZING. Warm, sunny and no need for a jacket. In fact, I had the windows down most of the time when I drove around.
Speaking of driving... I had decided to rent a car and, surprise surprise, I received a FREE double upgrade.
Oh my lands! A 2013 Chrysler 200 was my wheels. Whoa.
Here are a few photos I managed to snag and, of course, several layouts will follow as soon as I catch up on some much needed rest. :)

|My dear friend Julie. I just adore her and she will hate me for posting this but I don't care.|
|The girls who GET me to the core. I wish I could clone them and have them here with me in Chicago.|
An amazing week that was over too soon!
I'd say I really want to get back to visit folks again soon BUT... instead I'm letting them know how easy it is to fly HERE and that I have room. :)
