Christmas

December 31st, 2012

Link celebrated his first Christmas (complete with a Christmas Cold).  I hope he learns to love it as much as his mom!   I won 2nd place in the 2nd annual ugly sweater competition.  Dave won first, his sweater wasn’t ugly, but it was ugly on him because it didn’t fit.  Go figure.

Baptism

December 31st, 2012

Pictures from Link’s baptism – we ended up doing it 12/23 while we were in WI.  My family along with my Uncle Harvey, Aunt Bobbi, cousin Amy & her boys were able to celebrate with us.     The event was extra special for Link because Poppy snuck him some cake…

Perseverance

December 15th, 2012

Link has been very interested in Lucy’s water bowl – he is always denied the fun it could hold.   Life lesson #47 If at first you don’t succeed, try again – when mom’s in the bathroom. I didn’t plan on mopping at 5:30 am, but at least it’s done!

9 Months

December 7th, 2012

We had Link’s 9 month apt. today.  The Dr. confirmed my suspicions – he’s one awesome little dude.   He weighed in at 19lbs 1 oz (about 2 lbs less than I thought!) 27″ long (apparently only grew .5″ wha??) He babbles non stop when tired, crawls in turbo speed, pulls self up (pretty effortlessly) […]

He weighed in at 19lbs 1 oz (about 2 lbs less than I thought!)

27″ long (apparently only grew .5″ wha??)

He babbles non stop when tired, crawls in turbo speed, pulls self up (pretty effortlessly) on anything & everything, walks w/ the help of a box to push & loves Lucy’s water dish.

Saving Lives

November 30th, 2012

I classify all spiders into 2 categories.  If it’s brown, it’s clearly a brown recluse.  If it’s black, it’s a black widow.  You can’t take any risks people.  It is a running joke at our house & in the office.   Last Wednesday, I was leaving work for the holiday weekend.  I took the stairwell […]

Last Wednesday, I was leaving work for the holiday weekend.  I took the stairwell down to the first floor when I saw this giant black spider on the wall.  I knew exactly what it was instantly.  Everyone in the office, except for J was gone for the Thanksgiving.  She needed to witness this, so when I told everyone else on Monday, they would believe me.  I sent her a text with a picture saying “legitimately think this is a black widow”.  J came down & knocked it off the wall for me – and there it was, the red hourglass shape on it’s belly.  I stomped on it & kicked it outside.
I saved everyone in my office building a horrible death by black widow.  That, my friends, is something to be thankful for.

Burrito Stress

October 30th, 2012

I can’t be the only one in this world that has burrito anxiety. There are 3 main burrito places in Denver (probably more) – Chipotle, Q-Doba, & Illegal Pete’s.  And also in that order is the extent of their menu’s – Chipotle basic & Illegal Pete’s is extensive (and contains booze, I sometimes think I […]

I can’t be the only one in this world that has burrito anxiety.

There are 3 main burrito places in Denver (probably more) – Chipotle, Q-Doba, & Illegal Pete’s.  And also in that order is the extent of their menu’s – Chipotle basic & Illegal Pete’s is extensive (and contains booze, I sometimes think I need booze to get through it).

 

Scenerio:
You are still standing at the tortilla warmer, your burrito is all the way down by the salsa’s, and they are hollering at you about what salsa you want, but you don’t know that because you can’t hear them because you’re about 10′ away and it’s lunch rush hour, so it’s busy, not to mention you aren’t familiar w/ the menu, so you don’t know what kind of salsa’s they have, or which ones are hot, but you can’t just go & look, because you’re still 10 people deep in line, so you just have to randomly guess, because you don’t want to hold up the line, and chances are, you’ll guess something the picky eater you are will hate and then you’re burrito is ruined.  Seriously – anxiety.

 

I have Chipotle mastered and have no fears about it.  I used to feel this way about Q-doba, but I’ve been there enough times, that I MOSTLY can shout what I want (although sometimes I still screw it up).

 

Today, they asked if I wanted Q-doba for lunch, and without hesitation & much pre-lunch anxiety, I agreed.  THEN!!  They told me there was a change of plans & we’re going to Illegal Pete’s.  Lunch is 45 min. away, I’ve looked over their menu, and it’s large, and not very specific, can I get a burrito bowl?   or do I have to get it w/ the tortilla?  I.DON’T.KNOW.  Panic has set in.  Lord help me.

 

Maybe I should stay back & eat my Lean Cuisine…it sounds safer.

Very “The Hangover”-ish.

 

On a completely other note, in my baby food making venture, I decided to make Link beets w/ pears. I swear I have been boiling the beets all day – those things are never going to get soft.  I’m sure I’ve boiled all nutritional value out of them.  Darn beets!!
