saturday is going to be a whirlwind of a day. a few weeks ago we went out to breakfast one morning after church at bob evans and it was so delicious i havnt stopped thinking about it. so im hoping we have a repeat of such scrumptiousness. then heading over to get the keys to the new apartment! just imagine me twirling around inside like mary tyler moore or something, but without the hat. my mom is watching the kiddos while david and i go and (as maggie said) "drink the kool aid" at one of those things where you enter to win a car and OMG YOU'RE A FINALIST!!
