My sister Amanda was in town visiting this past weekend, so we were very busy playing and talking about wedding stuff (she's getting married in June, for those of you who don't already know!) It is always so wonderful having her here. She is my very best friend and I miss her with all my heart. Having her here always brings out the best in me, and the boys.

I even took my camera to dinner at a pizza joint the other night, just to capture our last meal with Aunt Amanda. But sometimes, a day goes by and I don't get a chance to use it, so I have to rely on the trusty-dusty cell phone photo. Here is a shot I took on Sunday during the SF 49er's game vs. the Green Bay Packers.

As a die-hard (ok, sometimes fair-weather) Chicago Bears fan, I wanted nothing more than the Niners to crush the Packers in the first week of the playoffs. And while it wasn't a full-on spanking, per say, the Niners were victorious in the end and I was one very happy lady. You know what they say, "when in Rome..."
