But not this year!
Here's what we're planning THIS Memorial Day weekend ...
Did I mention--this is my first one in the US in two years?
(PS: Sorry to beat a dead horse with the whole "My First Summer Sans Survivor," but it's such a weird thing to be out of the country two summers in a row--especially when you are a wife, mom of 6, who doesn't even go to Target without at least 2 members of her family.)
Anyway, my point!
I am so grateful to celebrate this Memorial Day weekend with my family here in Salt Lake City:
--We're going swimming.
(In any bathing suit I wanna wear--regardless of it's placement on the colorwheel.)
--We're going to BBQ.
(On a real BBQ! No combing the jungle for firewood.)
--We're going to listen to music ... real loud music.
(I missed my family first, and MUSIC second, in the game. I love music and can truly say I missed it more than food or the internet.)
--And we're going to count our blessings.
(Because even though it "was just a reality tv show," Survivor taught our whole family so many life-changing lessons. Truly, we are all different people as a result of Mark Burnett, Jeff Probst, the crew, the castaways, Samoa, The Philippines, and Survivor. Those 67 days living off the land taught me to truly appreciate--AND LIVE--every minute of every day on Planet E. Boom!)
Have a beautiful holiday weekend. Don't forget to hug your loved ones.
And just for fun (my fun), here are some flashback photos of our fam in 2010:

(Psst: He leaves on his service mission in about 40 days.)
PS: Prayers to my Survivor friend Katherine who is kicking cancer's can as she goes through radiation right now. ((hugs)) and healing prayers, chica. XOXO
