A most wonderful weekend and my weekly mantra

This weekend was one for the books!  On Saturday morning, the hubby and I traveled to Detroit for his work awards ceremony.  We knew he was in the top three for mechanic of the year in his region and we were anxious to find out that night if he won.  We arrived at the Greektown Casino, checked into our room and headed down for cocktail hour.  I love being able to go to some of his work parties, they are always a lot of fun with a nice meal, open bar, photo booth and being able to talk to some of the managers and mechanics from other parts of the region that we don't see too often. 

The awards portion of the night took a long time (over an hour) and the mechanic of the year was not announced until the very end.  As Andrew's boss read over the top three mechanics and started to read the statistics for the winner my heart felt like it was going to explode....then all of a sudden they called his name, I looked over at Andrew and he still didn't realize it was him and finally jumped out of his seat to walk up to the stage.

When I ran up to take pictures, his boss grabbed my phone and told me to go up on stage too and that I deserved to be up there with him.  I'm so thankful that he has such a wonderful boss who has supported him and guided him through the last four years.  The trophy is a piston from a semi-truck and weighs about 80 lbs, he gets to display it in his shop for the next year and then pass it off to the winner for next year.  I could not be a prouder wife!!!

And now my weekly mantra!

This weekend I got to see my husband accept a prestigious award, gambled and lost a little in the casino and slept in a lovely plush king sized bed.  It was a great weekend!

This week I’m determined to be healthier and get back into my routines!

I believe in believing in myself and doing what is best for me and Andrew.

I’m excited to go to Bon Jovi with my mom on Sunday and to see a good friend for dinner one night this week as well!

I’m addicted to coffee and sleep.  I'm finally over this cold so at least cough drops and cold meds aren't on the list for this week!

I wish that it was spring already!  I'm so over winter right now.

I’m happiest when I stick to my routines and get a good nights rest.

My weekly mantra: Work hard, play harder!
