Random Updates

A few random things to share as I head into my extended long weekend.

1. Yesterday was my wedding anniversary. M and I celebrated our 4 years of wedded bliss with a nice dinner out at Melanie’s Bistro, a local restaurant with a great atmosphere and delicious food. I had the lamb (a little tough but the sauce more than made up for it) and M had the steak (cooked to perfection with tasty seasoning). We started with the crab cakes which I would probably pass on in the future. While good, they weren’t anything special and they not worth the cost at $10 for 2. The best part of the meal was by far the chocolate mousse cake for dessert. M and I shared but he let me have more than half 🙂

My wedding day: May 23rd, 2009

2. E started daycare this week and she is transitioning wonderfully! She hasn’t cried once at the drop off and she loves being able to play with new toys and new babies. Unfortunately she loves it so much that she doesn’t want to nap. Apparently she is afraid she will miss out on something! She has been napping longer as the week progresses so hopefully she will work up to her normal routine in the next week or so.

3. Today I have a day to myself! I have a day off from work today (thank you, accrued vacation time!) and with both girls in daycare, I have a full 8 hours to do whatever I want, whenever I want! This is the first time I’ve had this kind of time to myself since E has been born! So what do I have planned? A visit with my sister-in-law and niece, a trip to the library and grocery shopping. While running household errands isn’t exactly what I would do on my ideal day off, our fridge is bare and we need something for dinner! At least I can take my time to peruse the aisles and read labels!

That’s it for now so have a good weekend everyone!

 

2:30 update: Apparently it was silly of me to think that I could have a whole day to myself.  The daycare called after lunch informing me that E had a fever and that I would need to pick her up 😦  On the plus side, I swung by the drive-thru on my way home from the daycare and my Big Mac was delicious!  I’m happy to report that E is currently napping in her crib 🙂

  1. Congratulations to you and M! This year is me and Avery’s 3rd wedding anniversary and I have a feeling we’ll probably go to Melanie’s too. Try the lobster mac ‘n cheese next time, it’s amazing! I wish they’d update their website with weekly hours, they were open for brunch on Monday but closed for dinner! We ended up at El Sol instead.

    I’m glad E is settling into daycare so quickly! Does she see L during the day at all? But I guess they keep the infants and toddlers separate.

    A day off already, so jealous! I can’t wait for my day to come 🙂 I’ll reply to your email soon!

    • I’ve never eaten at El Sol. Is it good? My next eating adventure is to try Hirut. It’s an Ethiopian place between Celena’s and Silly Goose. We walked by last night and they had live music.

      • El Sol’s really good! It’s a fun resto for the kids, looking at the decor will keep them occupied the whole time 🙂
        I’ve tried Lucy’s before but Ethiopian food isn’t my taste (literally). My friend that took me loves it, though!
