9:00 PM

I went on vacation and apparently my blog went on hiatus too. This wasn't intentional, but friends, family, and sunshine won. In fact, we hardly used our computers at all (with the exception of a little hulu, and photo uploads). It was a nice, and I think much needed break. Sometimes, I really think technology rules, or at least it can in my life. I totally have to keep it in check.

But we are back now and I have a gazillion (ok, maybe not quite, but a whole lot) of photos to share. We had a fabulous time visiting friends and family, a couple beach days, and a WHOLE lot of good food. Basically, we ate the entire time. It's a good thing we didn't stay much longer. ;)

During down time, my husband was a good sport and helped me explore the island he grew up on a little bit more. After all, if it this place could be a future home for us, I've got to know what's there, right? Plus, baby basically only napped in the car, so once he fell asleep we didn't dare move him or stop.

But we are home now, getting back into regular naps and BABY PROOFING. Our little man unintentionally gained a whole lot of confidence in his standing capabilities from a few narrow holes we dug him at the beach to play in. And now he thinks he is a pro. He is not. I think sitting or standing in a sandy, wet hole was hands down his favorite part of the trip. Meeting his great grandparents, and grandmother was pretty cool too though.

The plane ride wasn't terrible either. Holland's take on in-flight entertainment was to make friends with the flight attendants. Smart man. He hung out with them a good hour on each flight, with us close by. We didn't mind a bit and neither did they. He even found 15-month old twins to say hello to.

Anyhow, I'll be back soon with photos to share and some regular posts, but tonight I am eating ice cream and going to bed early.

So long!


My own little circus act.

9:28 PM

Once upon a time…

there was a boy

and his dad

and when you put the two together,

they became the cutest circus act EVER!

My heart overflows with love for these two, 

I love them in a way I could have never imagined.

P.s. That brush is his most prized possession. 


Meals! Week 14

7:21 PM

Hey, it's not Sunday yet, which means the week isn't over just yet. So with that said, here is what we ate and will eat this week. ;)

Monday: Egg fried rice and short ribs
Tuesday: Left-overs
Wednesday: Brinner birthday party! Serisouly, best idea ever!
Thursday: Ginger fried rice Peanut butter and honey sandwiches (sometimes it just sounds good, especially toasted on fresh sourdough)
Friday: Miso mushroom soup
Saturday: Ginger soy salmon and rice
Sunday: Eat out 

Nothing super exciting, the impromptu peanut butter and honey sandwiches were probably the highlight. At least for me, I think the short ribs were a close second for hubs. Sometimes easy dinner nights are the best. And come dinner time, I've been all about that. Between the excitement of crawling, standing, and new teeth popping through left and right, our little rascal hasn't had the most restful nights lately. I know it'll pass soon enough and well, while it's here, I don't really mind those extra night time snuggles.

Happy Saturday friends!

**If you're wondering, we've made the ginger fried rice before and it is absolutely amazing. Follow the recipe as listed and you get a rather put together looking dish or make it all in one pan and it still tastes pretty fabulous. I cooked ours off tonight and we will eat it through the week ahead for lunch.
