For my actual birthday, i went out to sushi with k and b. It was delicious. Beatrice loved being fed the sushi rice and the potstickers. And i ate a roll that was full of cream cheese and had been deep-fried. So good!
It is a little dark, but we are at the berliner pub in renton and i have just had some good sausage and beer. The eskesens gave me some wonderfully sturdy glass frosty mugs, and beatrice practically had the run of the place, dragging each adult in turn across the restaurant.
Fun fact: Kelly can bring beatrice to hysterical, hiccup-inducing laughter merely by making funny sounds at the dinner table.
Kelly made all of my favorite birthday foods at once! Pork tenderloin with maple syrup and spice, quinoa dinner rolls, red wine, homemade cherry pie… It was a true feast. My family came over too. 31, you are pretty good so far.
Kelly makes these for beatrice whenever we have pancakes. Beatrice, who can spot mickey at fifty paces, loves them.
I am reading this very long book right now. I cannot recommend it, but it’s got some interesting ideas and characters, so it may last until it’s due at the library. Rick moody needs an editor.
Our old w&d ate our clothes, sucked electricity without compunction, and did not have settings that were useful on delicate clothes (the dryer had two heat settings: ‘regular’ and ‘medium’). And so i was only a little sad when the washer sprang a leak and had to go. After much research, we settled on this pair by kenmore. They’re really nice.
Beatrice is a girl. While she does not appear to harbor any desire to be a princess, she does love to make up little stories about her toys that feature relationships. Nowhere is this more clear than the bathtub, where she picks pairs of of ducks and makes them kiss. “they love each other!” she says.
My friend dj got married, so we did the honorable thing and filled his office with balloons to ensure he’d get even less work done upon his arrival back to the office after the honeymoon. Congrats, dj!
We were getting ready to leave on thursday evening when kelly gave beatrice a few stickers. A few minutes later, she looked at a sticker on her fingers and said “brother like it? Brother like it?” When we looked at her quizzically she ran over to kelly and put the sticker on her belly. She’ll be a wonderful big sister.
