Uh-oh... Jonas has now learned how to pull himself up to standing. This will open up a whole new realm of potential bumps and bruises.
Today was the boys first ride in the seat of the shopping cart. They did very well! Now I gues we'll have to only shop at Costco because they have the double seater.
p.s. Happy birthday Brad!!!
I was reading a friends food blog today and couldn't help but make the featured dish for dinner. This is an orzo pasta salad with tons of veggies and feta cheese tossed in a lemon vinigrette. I took a few liberties with the ingredient list, but stayed on track for the most part. This will now be a staple in my home several times per month. Yum, yum!
Sleepy Elliott. He's just to tired to crawl anymore. He's been playing all day at Kim's house. First, I took some family photos of Kim's new family of 4, then I went to go have a hot stone massage. The massage was wonderful! The perfect treat to sore mommy muscles. Thanks, Kim, for the fabulous treat and watching my boys! I know you will enjoy your photos!
Seriously?!?!?! How on earth did I get strep throat!? It was like pulling teeth to get in to see a doctor (because I was 99.9% sure of my self diagnosis). I have yet to set up a family physician for me and Matt... oops... The boys pediatrician refused to treat me because I'm over 18, my OB refused to treat me because I would be a hazard to their other patients while I was hanging out in the waiting area and the family doc I called couldn't see me for another week and a half because I needed to have a 'new patient' visit. So, I had to spend 3 times as much money to go to the Minute Clinic and argue with the PA because she was 99.9% sure I did not have strep. Turns out I did. She wrote me a prescription, I picked it up, went home and gargled some of this vile tasting gunk (which really helps though...) and am now going to bed hoping to feel better in the morning.
There was a huge storm that came through our area today. I was at lunch with a friend when it did, but when I got home the power was out and I couldn't open my garage door. And when I got inside all the smoke detectors were going off. Later, the power came back on, but my computer and most of our electronics did not...
To satisfy my Cafe Rio craving while trying to stay healthy, I made some pico and Creamy Tomatillo Dressing (with light mayo and low fat sour cream...) and ate it over green leaf lettuce. Craving = curbed. For the time being...
Happy birthday America!
Matt's uncle's brother throws a huge Fourth of July party each year with TONS of food, music, family and ends it all with a nice home-grown fireworks show.
