Peachy Winner and Happenings at the Ho house

Congrats to Emily Routh and Mindy A. You will both be receiving one of our Peachy flower clips!

And with that, our 12 days meets her conclusion. What fun we had. Recap coming tomorrow.

So, on to the Happenings at the Ho House. The alliteration there is simply stunning.

Wednesday was Calvin’s 30th birthday! In true Ho fashion we had a simple celebration. Calvin ate wings with friends the night before and for his birthday dinner the next day? His free birthday sub from Jersey Mikes. I made a Pear tarte for his birthday cake. Frozen from Trader’s Joes, I cannot tell a lie. Our darling Charlotte serenaded him and we gifted him with a Patagonia rain coat. A much needed item for African travel. And now; he is 30. This may sound funny… but… I really like my husband. He’s just an all-around great, steady guy who just loves us so much. He’s a great dad, a good provider and my complete opposite. (Not opposite on parenting skills I must add, I think I’m a pretty good mom!) He’s just good for me, he always has been and I’m really glad I get to love him for life.

He also took me to see Ben Rector (love!) and Matt Wertz Christmas. Also a perk of being married to Calvin Ho, he likes good music.

The kids got to experience Monkey Joes (Jump Castle Heaven) last week. We were the only people there. Fun. But how in the world do they stay in business?

My birthday just happens to be on Monday. And no. I’m not going to be 30. The ever-so-young 29 is next on my radar. In true Erica fashion I started the celebration early by sewing with my Jonah’s Journey gals. Our hostess Stacey, isn’t her kitchen gorgeous?, cooked us some delicious potato soup and I showed the girls how to make aprons. Good times.

And that’s the Ho Happenings.
