Ethan and I went on a date 4th of July weekend.  We went to the movies and had popcorn, soda, hotdogs; I paid.  It was a great date until he had a meltdown in the car at the end of the date.  Come to think of it, this is how many of my dates ended up when the poor fellow didn’t get what he wanted in the back of the...

I have been in a funk. Hubby and I have been going through some stuff as all couples do, we like to call it ‘evolving’, evolving, shmevolving, whatever you want to call it, it is not fun. But it looks like we are coming through to the other side of this thing, hoooray! So why the funk you ask? Well now that I...

This was how my walk to school went this morning with Ethan and Dylan and Scarlett. Dylan, charming 6 year old girl who lives across the street from us, is chatting about hair and hair styles and outfits and trips to the beach. Scarlett is busy sticking her tongue out of her mouth and blowing full force and throwing...

Made this last night for dinner, it was AMAZING!  I served it with a bit of rice and a napa cabbage salad.  I left out the jalapeños just in case the kids might eat any, but then we ate after they went to bed.  Less flying food that way.;)  Oh and I didn’t have limes, but I had meyer lemons off the...

When I thought about what I wanted to be when I grew up, short order cook was not on the list. Ballerina, Fireman, Princess, Astronaut, Doctor, Supermodel, these were all interesting choices to me, but short order cook, notsomuch. And even though I strive to be the best Princess I can be EVERY SINGLE DAY, I doubt I...

Or as Ethan says Marthin Lufer King. I try my hardest not to laugh out loud or even dare look my husband’s way or we will both bust up laughing. He has come home all this past week with very interesting Marthin Lufer King factoids. Most of which are just a wee bit off from the actual truf.;) They are reciting a poem in...

Ethan has reached the obsession stage with his boy parts. The kid has his hand in his pants whenever possible. Who knew that obsession started at FIVE! Needless to say we have a few new rules in the house, we must keep our clothes on when company is over, we must keep our clothes on at the dinner table, etc. So the...

2008 has certainly kicked off with a bang.  Just finished the second of two bridal shows yesterday and am I BEAT!  They were amazing shows.  The Ritz Carlton and the Four Seasons, not too shabby.  I had an amazing time and got some great feedback from brides.  It is so great to meet brides face to face to talk...

Scarlett and I get out a lot, we are ladies of leisure, if you can call Costco and Target leisurely places.;) I feed her in various and sundry places, the dressing room at baby Gap, the car, the park, while out to lunch. We are breastfeeding and I try to be discreet throwing a blanket over her head if we are in...

That would be 12 weeks 1 day 13 hours and 45 minutes ago.;) She is doing wonderfully, we are all doing great. She is napping right now IN HER CRIB! which is why I am writing right now… typically she naps on mommy with her nose shoved right up against my booby. I guess she wants to know that it isn’t going anywhere...
