Today I just want to pay homage to our fearless leader and my daughter-in-law Audrey. Although she introduced herself at the birth of this blog, her self posting was really more like a lick on a delicious ice cream cone. Audrey is an ice cream I think we can all indulge in a little bit more and so some fun facts and pictures about a woman I love, admire and adore. I apologize for the length of this post but I don't know how to do a slide show.
Fun facts about Audrey:
The first time I met Audrey the two of us went shopping at Food 4 Less in Provo and that's when I found out that Audrey LOVES cereal.
Audrey said YES to my son Chris and has fully supported him now for 15 years. In fact I think she indulges him too much. When I say fully support I wasn't kidding as she was the major bread winner for several years. I've told my son, "You ever leave her and your out of the will and she gets your portion."
Audrey was a gorgeous bride, in fact Audrey is just plain gorgeous. She has the most fabulous smile and is so photogenic, you'll never see a bad picture of Audrey.
Best laugh, when Audrey laughs it is a glorious sound.
She has a nickname, it's Billy.
Audrey loves sports. She joined a fantasy football league with Chris's friends and she won the first year. Audrey would love to be an Olympic luger, NFL sportscaster or a personal trainer.
She loves to socialize and play games. She thinks the Carlsons are totally lame people on New Years Eve and she's right.
Audrey lived in NYC for 5 years while Chris tried to be a commercial photographer. She cried the first time she saw her very expensive teeny tiny Brooklyn apartment and then went on to become a died in the wool New Yorker. She could be making a fortune in the financial world but instead decided to become a mom.
Audrey loves islands, beaches, water and vacations. She and Chris have visited several islands. She's game for adventure and not afraid to take a zip line across a Costa Rican jungle.
On the go describes Audrey. She's always got a TO DO list but unlike me she crosses things off her list.
Cook, the girl can cook!
Audrey loves camping especially church girls camp. Her enthusiastic personality and love of outdoors is perfect for that activity.
Audrey isn't wild about babies but I have to tell you she is one amazing mother. She takes her boys to all sorts of things all over the east coast. She recently drove 6 hours so that Samuel could ride Thomas the Train and presently she is up to her eyeballs supporting her boys who are both on a swim team.
Audrey likes fires, hot cocoa, movies, pajamas, shoes, pedicures, massages and reading not necessarily in that order.
Anyone lucky enough to have Audrey as a friend has won the friend lottery, so that makes all of you winners.
I love you Audrey and I'm so blessed to have you as a daughter.
