Today was a nice lazy Saturday. Ashlyn got up around 9am...I played with her till Aric woke up, then while he played with her, I crawled back into bed and slept another hour. We spent the first half of the day at home, just doing odd-n-end stuff. Aric and I are planning a dinner for Ashlyn's first birthday. After researching restaurants and other party venues, we decided to just have the party at our house, and have it catered. Ashlyn's such a spoiled lil' girl....she's having a party here and another one up North. But it won't be like this every year. We figured her first birthday is a big deal (plus, we were lazy parents and never threw her a Red Egg and Ginger Party). =P
Ashlyn, and I went to South Coast Plaza to exchange some of my birthday
gifts. I don't usually like exchanging my birthday gifts. I think
it's kinda rude. But I'm flattered that my friends think I could still
fit a size "small". =D *giggle*
patiently shopped with me all afternoon...even asked if I needed to
stop into Sephora. Okay, who are you and what did you do to my
husband?! I swear, since returning from my vacation, Aric has
been REALLY REALLY nice. Not that he wasn't before, but now it's just
The weather drastically changed...all week it was super hot, but today was gloomy, cold, and drizzly. It started raining as we left the mall. My father-in-law called and was in the area. We met up with him and Netty for dinner at Natraj's Tandoori at The Marketplace. We haven't had Indian food in a long time. It was a nice change. After dinner, they came over to play with Ashlyn some more. My father-in-law and Netty stayed till close to 11pm.
So much for NOT updating everyday...it's weird. When I have the choice not to update as often.. suddenly, I have so much to say. Strange.
