The seventh graders mom

CEM has been fighting a terrible cold/allergy/God knows what illness .  She finally went to urgent care yesterday and got some decongestant.  This morning I wrote a note for her to give to school nurse to distribute to her but she was worried I would need to take to nurse.  As it turns out she was right the nurse needed a special form filled out.  And we waited, and waited, and waited in the school office in this state.

When I realized that I was unprepared to be in office (sometimes we are oblivious) I told her we should take a pic.  She was unphased with my appearance before this request. 

So, in an effort to not embarrass her I took it as I was exiting.

The difference two hours makes 

And thank you to KSS for my new glasses

Happy Birthday Sara!


Words can not express how cool I think you are

I am so blessed to have you in my life!

Happy Birthday!!!

Matching Sunday hair

While trying to create the best Instagram photo 


We first posed in front of our Sunday vegetable craving(s) 


(Since artichokes, Brussels sprouts, broccoli and vegetable stew in the course of 30 min is more blog worthy than Instagram worthy - our food habits get an appearance here)

And the out take

Eating our way through Disney

Tarzan read an article on food beast about 15 stunning food and drinks at Disneyland worth standing in line for.  We had tried some (lobster roll and bbq chicken baked potato) but decided this Spring Break we would break the calorie bank and graze 

Matterhorn Macaroon
Beignets and mint julep 
Peanut butter sandwich 
This one - the Monte Cristo (while amazing) did us in.

GAME OVER 





Top 10 pics sent to me week ending 3/20

Darn Children

Yesterday Ruth sent a pic of Annie of a child fighting the picture process.  I love this kid




It reminded me of my attempt to 3 year old pictures of MJM.  If I ever wanted to disown (or dismember) a child it was then.  She practiced and practiced before we got to Wal-Mart. then we get there and she wouldn't if go in front of the camera.  This young unprepared mother even stepped in to get her to smile/get in front of darn scary camera.


Then bribed her (please note that there is a fine line between tears/freakout and let me try to smile)


I was so mad that I left Walk-Mart without the pictures and went home for naps.  Once home, I called her Aunt Tami who went to Wal-Mart to purchase the pictures unaware to me.  When we woke up from naps the packet was sitting on my doorstep.  With sleep (and now with years) behind us, I laughed.  Laughing again now, and loving Annie even more!

Aaron is an Irish name

I am celebrating St Patrick's Day, as always, but not because I was a good planner this year - but because I am fortunate to have fashionable people in my world.

Yesterday morning as I was packing to go to San Francisco/Sacramento I threw in a pair of funky socks to go with my boots and jeans.  These funky socks are courtesy of my friend Aaron who is the first straight man I met that could pull off sassy socks.  I was so impressed with his swagger that I bought Tarzan several pairs for Christmas.

On the way to the airport I began my obsession that I forgot anything green. Oh dear, Grandma O'Haver will turn over in her grave, my poor mother will be so disappointed.  That obsession continued until last night at 9 pm when I pulled out the socks. God Bless the green stripes - my own gold statue end if the rainbow!!



Happy St Patrick's Day!!

Where should I tip toe?
