HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my brother-in-law, TONY!

Tony and Wil (Reno 2001)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my Hawaiian brutha, DAVE!

Dave and Ashlyn

Also, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to CARY! Wishing you all a great fun-filled day! =D

Because Tony's birthday falls right after the holidays, we never give him a proper birthday celebration that he deserves (I'm sure the same goes for Dave and Cary). But this year Wil planned a nice getaway for Tony...a weekend in Seattle. I wish them both a fun and safe trip! =D

Tonight Aric, Ashlyn, and I had dinner with Ed, Sue, Grace, and Lauren at Kaju Soondubu (Soft Tofu). That place just opened up right next to Tapioca Express in Irvine. After dinner, we went next door to Tapioca Express for dessert. Tapioca Express is the busiest and most popular boba tea place in the area....packed with high schoolers and young college students. The line was out the door! Once again, Ed held Ashlyn, and was mobbed by a group of young girls "awwww"-ing over the baby. Ed shot me a "you know wassup" look, and I glanced over at Sue, who just rolled her eyes. hehehehe

Later we went back to Ed and Sue's and watched "Toy Story". I found out tonight that Lauren's mommy, Grace, is expecting another baby!!! YAY! How exciting!

I got so many emails regarding my journal entry recapping Year 2001. Everybody found it unbelievable that I had so many big life-changes happen all at once. Honestly, at the time, I was too busy to even think about it. I concentrated on one thing at a time, so I never felt overwhelmed. As my girlfriends like to joke now, "Peg wouldn't have it any other way...nice and dramatic!"
My girlfriends always said they knew what order we would all get married and have babies. They always said that Cin would get married first (which she did), then Wil (which she did), then me, then Ivy, then Bett. AND then they all agreed that I would be the first to have a baby. *shyeah* I didn't believe them because, at the time, Ivy was engaged and I wasn't. But sure enough, I was able to squeeze in getting married and having a kid before Ivy's wedding! HAHAHAHA! I shall never doubt my girlfriends again.
