HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Patricia!
me just tell you that my husband and friends
ROCK! Aric had to get up early this morning to do a job with Brian in
Simi Valley. He had told me about it in China, and apologized in advance
for not being able to hang out with us while Wil was visiting. Since
it's extra income, I let him off the hook. hehehe So this morning, Aric
got up at 9:30am and left. Wil came into my room and got ready while
I lazily lounged in bed. Around 11am, Aric mysteriously came back...bringing
along Cin and Sarah!!! *SCREAM!* My husband, the sly dawg, was in cahoots
with my girlfriends who planned to surprise me with a visit.
had left for LA to see his family and to attend a wedding. So Cin, Sarah,
Wil, Ashlyn, and I spent a beautiful afternoon having lunch at Chimayo's
and shopping at Fashion Island in Newport. We
shared Rare Ahi wraps with Mango salsa, and sampled each other's salads
with Blackened Salmon, Crabcakes, Chicken, and Scallops over Butternut
Squash Risotto. Can I just say how nice it is to eat something other
than Shanghainese food? =)
The girls and I shopped all day...hitting up a couple of different places on the way home. I dropped by a pharmacy on the way home and picked up a nighttime cold syrup for Ashlyn. Though she's really tired, stubborn girl refuses to sleep. I figured a little "forced" remedy might do the trick. My cold hasn't gotten better, but I popped DayQuil all day...and that kept my nose from being congested & runny and prevented me from hacking up a lung.
got back from Simi Valley around 8:30pm. We met up with Wey and Jeff
at Honda-Ya for dinner. The cough syrup kicked in, and Ashlyn slept
through most of dinner. We had a great time!
