The Trifecta

I thought I would surprise you all by finally blogging again...
Hello, there!!

It is a special time of year in the Hipp House- the time of the Trifecta! Our Anniversary, Mother's Day and my Birthday all fall within a week of each other- three seperate and distinct holidays which, together, Larry has named The Trifecta. I am a traditionalist at heart, and my 'love language' seems to be gifts- things my dear sweet husband has known and accepted about me since we first met. And really, he's encouraged this in me because he's a great gift-giver!! I just love special occasions, surprises and celebrations, so the Trifecta is a great week!!

Anniversary roses!

We started this year's Trifecta celebration Saturday night with dinner at the Melting Pot to celebrate our 5th anniversary. It was our first time there and an interesting experience. Definitely the longest dinner we've ever had out! It took 3 hours to get thru 4 courses: cheese fondue, salad, the meat & veggie fondue, and finally, our favorite, chocolate s'mores fondue for dessert! Yummy!! And Larry surprised me with a gorgeous 'anniversary band' ring that will sit above my wedding rings! Told you he's a good gift-giver! :)

Trying to get a picture of mom & daughter on Mother's Day!

Sunday was Mother's day, and started with Georgia and Larry each bringing me a sweet card. It gets me every time when she carries in the card by herself! Larry's mom, sister & brother joined us for church and afterward we enjoyed a Mother's day Mexican lunch. On the way home we picked up my mommas day present- an elliptical machine! I've convinced Larry- and myself!- that this will be a working machine, not a dust-collector! And he even spent the afternoon painstakingly putting it together for me!

The Hipps on Mother's Day

We'll round out the Trifecta on Friday, the 16th, with my 28th Birthday. Then we'll have to wait a whole 'nother year to start the celebration again! Thanks to my sweet hubby for keeping the Trifecta alive and full of fun surprises!

Happy 5 years, Kathryn & Larry!!! Can you believe it!?!?!? Happy Mommy's Day, Kathryn!! Happy soon-to-be b'day!!! Only young, so young!! ;)
Yeah for blogging!! I know you're probably not feeling great these days while your body creates another Hippster. :(
I hope you enJOY that elliptical! It's my favorite cardio workout! You go, girl! I hope you asked for that...if I was given that without asking for it, I'd be offended. ;) Heeheehee! I know you find the humor in that!
Love you, girl!
Happy Trifecta!

Thanks, girls! It's been a fun week. I did ask for the elliptical, and so far have been good to use it! :) K
