brought to you by the letter e and the number 11...

11 months. One more month to go until the big birthday! July is going to be one stressful month! The whole entertaining a big group of people freaks me out. And I have bunko at my house next month on top of a birthday party, good thing I am leaving tomorrow for vacation! But enough about me.

So at 11 months, this is Ellie in a nutshell...
She puts the brush up to her hair.
She points the remote to the tv.
She puts the phone up to ear.
She likes to eat things by herself, so please don't expect my house to ever be clean again!
She says ank you (thank you) and uh oh.
She is getting 2 teeth on the top, just starting to come out.
She loves Sesame Street but mostly Elmo.
She loves the swimming pool.
She is very shy until she gets to know you, so Emilee don't be sad when she doesn't come right to you.

I know there has got to be more but unless I write these things down thru out the month, they escape me. Bad momma.

And, have any of you noticed the counter at the bottom of this blog? I think there are a few lurkers out there...Come out, come out wherever you are!

Do I see another SLC trip in my future?

Hello, Toad!!!

It's official..

and it has been for a while, I just haven't posted...

If you need to buy or sell a home in Nevada, California or Utah, Joaquin is your man! Or if you need a loan in any one of those states, Joaquin is your man! And speaking of Joaquin, he is now employed as a loan officer at WAMU, so think of all the possibilities there. Go Joaquin, we are all so proud of you!

So Liz, if you now needed that house with a pink and blue bathroom, you know where to go!

i'm so excited...

I just can't hide it. I'm about to lose control...yada yada yada.
That was in honor of my darling cousin Heather who never reads this, but just might after I announce to the world that it is her birthday - Happy Birthday!

And, yes I am excited because Ellie and I (and little Jess) are taking a road trip to SLC! End of June. IKEA, The Farmers Market, The Zoo. Good times. Anybody up for the experience? Hoping that both Ellie and I feel better by then. I'm hoping 3 weeks is a long enough recovery time...

the cafe rio gods are looking out...

So true, the saying of you don't know what you've got til it's gone. I think Poison said it best actually.
But, the point of this post is that I finally got my pork salad. It was so freaking fantastic. I'm going every day this week and I am able because my good friend Liz sent me what else - a Cafe Rio gift card!
Go me!!!

bath fun.

Since she hasn't had a picture for a while, I thought I should throw one out here.
This was her first bath in a real bathtub. I had to trash the other one since she decided to take a dump while bathing!
But look you can see her teeth! I think it might actually be the first picture I got of them.


anticipation sucks.

Ever have a moment when you are just anticipating something and it doesn't happen?
Like the time when I ordered a Coke, anticipating the taste of a nice cold Coca Cola and they serve me iced tea and I didn't know it until I took a huge gulp. Nasty!
Or like today, when I was anticipating going to Cafe Rio and then finding out we had our days messed up and it really doesn't open until tomorrow. Bummer.
Of course, I am in no way lacking in the food dept, one could look at me and figure that one out but still - it's a salad!

Also, anticipating Fathers Day. What do you give your husband when he says he wants nothing? Sorry, I just can't do the nothing thing. And since he rarely reads this blog, I need some ideas. Anyone???

Thanks, and here is hoping for a salad tomorrow!

so this is what 35 feels like.

Happy Birthday to me! Yesterday anyway, and thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes!
Joaquin and I went to stay at the Red Rock for the weekend. I love it there, if you are ever in town or if you live here and want to get away - Go there! You won't be disappointed. This was hilarious! Highly recommended. Especially if you liked 40 Year Old Virgin.
And, to mark the occasion, I went to Vegas on Friday! For those of you who know what I am talking about, a big bonus goes out to you!

Joaquin & Ellie gave me a new camera! I LOVE it! And, I went and got new hair last week - I'm a brunette!

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
Talk to you soon...
