Happy Thanksgiving!

Thankful for these two girls!

Also, thankful to be sitting in traffic because it means I live close enough to drive.

We hung out a lot this weekend! Did i tell you Josie has her first two teeth coming in? Makes her a little needy.

It was a fun, chill weekend full of family and good food and beer!

happy birthday to my mom today!

Happy birthday to my mom today!

Here she is with her brothers, today in Wisconsin. 

As an interesting side note, yesterday I saw this picture on the Facebook:

That is my mom's sister, my aunt, with those same two gents in the picture above. 

I like the symmetry between the two pictures, taken about 60 years in between.

I took this funny pic of Jose the other day when we were on vacay. My MIL sent these to Buddy when she was a babe. 

And then I saw this on my blog. 

Little same same sisters.

Haiku Friday

Two kids on the plane
An easy age to travel.
Five years and five months.

The flight was delayed
But we are not in a big rush
Nothing too stressful.

San Jose is rich.
I think the richest part of

updates, mostly food related

  • i have been back to work a month tomorrow. it is going just fine! some days are a little crazy, especially today and yesterday when Husbandry is out of town. but we make do just fine and the girls are pretty easy. i have managed to bring my lunch most days or swing a work lunch others. in fact, i think i've only had to buy lunch two times since returning to work. that's not so bad, right guys?
  • buddy is really easy to make food for because she only eats the following items: breakfast - cereal or an eggo. she has a morning snack that is strawberries, cucumber or string cheese. her afternoon snack is the same except you can add in crackers and cheese and ham. for lunch she has either pasta + strawberries + a danimal + crackers or the hot lunch at school if it is either cheese pizza (Pizza Friday), chicken nuggets, or once in a while pancakes. for dinner she has pasta, mac n cheese, chicken nuggets, taquitos or MAYBE what we're eating but only if its chicken & rice or lasagna or something that is basically a variation of what she is already eating. she always has a fruit or veggie with dinner. she always has dessert and that is either cat cookies from trader joes, ice cream or candy. ha! that was fun. let me see if i missed anything. oh she loves carrots especially the colorful ones from trader joes and she'll eat broccoli and celery if i have it out. she likes meat too but not if its spicy. she has a bite of whatever i made for dinner no matter what and sometimes goes back in for another. she loves gnocchi. who doesn't? 
  • josie only drinks boob milk, but we're going to start her on food soon, right? i think it's now. 
  • i have for breakfast fruit, cheese, and some type of bar or trail mix thing. 
  • was that the best post ever? i love lists.

You guys! I had such a fun birthday weekend. We went to Proud Bird for brunch and then had supper club celebrations. Babe and I even snuck in a date during the daytime. It was a super fun day and I am now super tired. Hahaha.
