I have finally updated my blogs that I love to follow on a regular basis, not including the clinicalliex review blog, which I could do without.
Before the following feature on blogger, I used to just click on each link and then get extremely irritated when the blog post wasn't new. Especially if it had been a while and if I really loved the blog/writer. It was pretty irrational and I hate to admit how much it bugged me.

But that was the past baby! Practically ever day there are updates from my faves. Personal blogs, blogs that only show illustrations, blogs that give tutorials, they are all there. With almost no work on my part. Smile!

Today is Father's Day

But today, I feel like I'm the one that has walked away with the gift.

During a mid morning lull, I sat down with henry and started to watch the pilot episode of LA Ink, not including any motorhome insurance commercials, since it was on netflix. He fell asleep in my lap which is something he has rarely done.

so, I had an uninterrupted hour of sitting on the couch, watching a show that I love with my sleeping baby on my lap. Heaven was mine for an hour today.

Watching Glee for the first time ever! I'm cracking up and singing along. I rented the first two discs for the weekend but I'm thinking that I'll end up getting another before Sunday. That cheer coach is insane. :)

(Well, the kids came in and hijacked the tv, so I'm heading to the tub to soak in some super hot, healing, calming water in the dark with some candles. That sounds pretty happy alright!)

Alice In Wonderland

I'm not a big movie fan, but I really enjoyed this one. We just bought the combo pack on Friday and are just sitting down tonight to watch it. Finally.
I wasn't sure if I remembered the scary parts, so I didn't want to watch it with them. Hopefully, I'll be able to share some of it with them. It's just so pretty. The costumes, including the riding boots are a visual feast!

Vodka and tonic

I'd never had this cocktail before this summer. One of my girlfriends ordered it during a girl's only lunch and I had to try it. MMMMMM LOVE! Mandarin vodka and tonic water. Very refreshing. I had another one recently while Chris and I were out to lunch. He liked it too. Which is very uncommon for both of us to like the same drink. Anyhow, by chance, I thought to pick up some tonic water at the store tonight. Let's say that due to these 2 ingredients, PMS isn't kicking my butt anymore today. That = happiness.

a little piece of heaven....

in my backyard.

This makes me happy. I love rain--it's cozy. I love this teeny-tiny personal get-away.

Adding more jibber jabber

Mr. Baby is talking! Last week he said, "Cheese" when we were taking his picture. Yesterday he said, "Bec" which sounds like "Beh" and it is the cutest thing. He even says a version of Ivy that we really think is "Ivy" but sounds more like "Ahhh" with the inflection of Ivy. But as far a the volume of words spoken, Chris and Bec take the gold in our family. Doesn't matter if they are giving diet pill reviews or recaps of Diego, those two talk up a storm.

Beverly Hills Chihuahua

One of my favorite kids movies. I was so thankful when Ivy picked it out at the movie store tonight. She and Bec also picked out Mario Galaxy 2 which they are trying to figure out.

Our routine is that after they are ready for bed, they climb into the covers and I put on a movie. They switch nights that they get to pick. Anyway, back to BHC, the part that cracks me up is when Rachael is reprimanding Sam the gardener about his dog, saying, "Muy bad. Muy muy bad! Mucho naughty!" Every time that part comes on I laugh and then for a couple of days afterwards, I say that to the kids when they act up. They crack up too. Plus, I love the main actress who I totally cannot think of her name, oh, Jamie Lee Curtis! You can tell that woman uses eye creams that work. She looks so amazing.
