HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Dina!
Friday! Every now and then, I lose the desire to keep up with this website.
For the past week or so, I haven't particularly enjoyed updating...sometimes
I downright dread it. It feels pointless to journal if my heart's not
in it. And I'm sure it carries over in my writings.
Yesterday Ashlyn and I spent the day with Grace, Lauren, and Taylor at South Coast Plaza. We shopped, had lunch, and shopped some more. It was good getting out for the day...but Ashlyn refused to take a nap when we got back, and was pretty grouchy by evening time.
night, I made dinner - cream of asparagus soup with crumbled bacon,
baked chicken, and french fries. Afterwards, Aric and I went to Babies
R Us to buy a potty seat for Ashlyn. Lately I've been putting her on
the toilet for her to tinkle. She's doing an awesome job so far. I just
wished she did "Number 2" in the toilet...but I think having
me stare at her while I hold her on the toilet is a bit unnerving for
her. hehehe Not to mention, my arms get tired from holding her. So we
decided to get her a potty seat so she can sit in peace without falling
into the toilet. hehehe
Today Ashlyn and I spent another fun filled day with Grace, Lauren, and Taylor. The weather was gorgeous, and we took the kiddies to Fashion Island to walk around. Grace has been looking all around creation for a birthday gift for her friend's son. I must say, her exhausting diligence in the pursuit of the "perfect" gift is admirable. I, on the other hand, am horrible at picking out gifts. Every once in a while I might come across something unique, but as most already know, I'm a "practical" gift-giver.
the two days of shopping with Grace, I've been in almost EVERY high-end
kids' store/department imaginable (Oilily, Jacardi, Nordstrom, Chanel,
Saks, Burberry, Nieman-Marcus, This Little Piggy Wears Cotton, Pampolina,
Tonight Aric took me and Ashlyn out to dinner at Inka Mama's. The wait was rather long, but the food was excellent. After dinner, we walked around a bit then went over to James and Grace's for dessert.
We spent the evening going through stacks and stacks of James and Grace's old pictures. I love pictures...and I find it's an intimate way of getting to know people better.
We got home kinda late. *YAWN!* We're all tired. G'Nite! Have a great weekend!
