BIRTHDAY to Guh!
I got up early this morning, got dressed, and prepared for Ann's Bridal shower....which included making 3 dishes. I was racking my brain for original ideas. I finally decided to make Baked Wasabi Salmon with Nori Furikake, Cucumber/Tomato Salad with Roasted Garlic vinaigrette, and a Tropical Fruit Ambrosia. *pat self on back*
one of Ann's bridesmaids, flew in this morning from NorCal. Ann picked
her up and dropped her off at my place. Emily picked us up at noon,
and together, we loaded up the car, picked up the cake from the Bakery,
and headed to Chris' house. We took longer getting to Chris' than anticipated...we
went to the wrong bakery and it took half an hour before we realized
that. Oops! =P
After the shower ended, a bunch of us bridesmaids hung around to clean up, eat, and chat. The shower went smoothly and most importantly, the bride-to-be had a great time! We all breathed a sigh of relief. hehehe I caught a ride back with Ann. We had to drop Cassie off at the airport....poor thing flew in just for the shower and had to get back the same day. CRAZY!
Oh, before I forget...Congratulations to Edna and Gregory! Aric's cousin, Edna got married today in Maryland. We couldn't make it out there, for obvious reasons. Though it would have been nice to meet more of the family and visit the East Coast in the process. Oh well, we'll just have to make a trip out there next time.
got home around 7pm. Aric and Ashlyn both looked happy to see me. =D
It's the first time I left Aric with Ashlyn for so long (7 hours). Aric
I was really tired from going to bed late last night, getting up early, and all the running around today....all I wanted to do was lie on the couch and not move. Yeah, right. Ashlyn was displaying some signs of separation anxiety. She made sure she was close by, and would start to wimper whenever I left her side. I spent the evening in my comfy pjs and hung out with my sweethearts. =D
has been talking/writing about "Trading
Spaces" for a long time now, but I just got into it recently.
Tonight I got Aric to watch it, and he got really hooked. TLC airs two
episodes back-to back on Saturday nights. Unfortunately, both Aric and
I were sooooo tired, we dozed off before we got to see the end results
of the last episode. DAMNIT! It was the Oakland-Webster Street
