I just have to get this off my chest. It's been bother me for a few years now. It seems that it just keeps coming back into my life. You know the milk slogan: Got Milk? Can I tell you how annoying it is that EVERYONE uses that slogan for their various companies. It DRIVES ME CRAZY!!! First of all, I didn't even think it was that good of a line when Milk used it but for some reason, everyone else in the world loved it so much they decided it would be their slogan for their various companies too. Got Termites? (for a pest control company). Got Hair? (for a hair loss product). Got Jink (for a junk removal service). I even saw one today that said, Got Pregnant? (for some helpline for teen mothers- are you kidding me??). Here's a rule all should follow- if you have a company of your own, find your own tag line. Got Milk? is milk's tag line. STOP USING GOT then whatever the product is. Be original, be creative. OK, I can now move forward with my life.

This last weekend I went on the best date with Dad! Life is so busy and crazy all the time so it was really cool to be able to spend some one on one time with just my dad! He picked me up Friday morning at 5:50am and we headed to the Lexington, KY airport. We boarded the plane headed to Atlanta and then onto Miami. Unfortunately, the plane took so long to de-ice in Lex that by the time they were done, Atlanta had stopped all planes from landing there because of weather issues. By the time we made it to Atlanta, our flight to Miami had already left. Normally, we would have just jumped on the next flight out but quickly found that that would not happen as it was spring break and every flight to Miami and surrounding airports were oversold for the rest of the day. With some hard work, my dad was able to secure us two seats to Sarasota, FL. Once there, we rented a car and drove 3 hours to Miami. We stayed at the Trump International Hotel and after dropping our bags off in our room, headed to the spa. We both got massages which were so relaxing and awesome!! After that, we went to an Italian restaurant for dinner. Next, my dad asked my what I was going to bring my kids home from my trip. I hadn't figured that out yet so we went shopping and he picked out some really cute clothes for my babies. It was so sweet to see him pick things out for my kids because normally that is something my mom and I do. It was fun to have that experience with my dad. After that, we went back to the hotel and crashed! The next morning we had breakfast by the beach. Following that, we went and got pedicures. Then, we headed over to the American Airlines Arena for a Utah Jazz/Miami Heat showdown. Unfortunately, the Jazz lost in triple overtime! We then headed to the airport and flew back to Lexington. I had such a fun and relaxing weekend. I will remember it FOREVER!!! I love you dad and I am so grateful for the person you are. You always put your family first! Whenever I am upset, you always know the right things to say and do to help me feel calm (not that I was upset this weekend, it's just a quality in you that I really love!). I love the papa you are to my kids. They adore you and so do I! Thanks for the fun weekend!!!!!
PS- I also have to give a huge thanks to Ammon who stepped in and took over my responsibilities so I could have such a fun weekend away. I love you Ammon!
PPS- And as always, thanks to my mom who always helps with whatever needs helping with. I don't know what I would do without you mom!!! I love you!
