Resume Life

We are back home, again! More travel! We spent a few days in South Carolina visiting John's dad and stepmom, Jane. We had a great time! The kids went to a cool kids museum where both kids enjoyed the Construction Zone and the Fairy Tale Land. We celebrated Andrew's first birthday. Like his big sister, he was largely unimpressed by his birthday cake. But, he did love his gifts of balls and moving vehicles, though. (His favorite things!)

I had a wonderful afternoon by myself. I got to drive John and Jane's convertible around--that was a blast! I ate lunch at Jason's Deli with only a cheesy teen vampire novel for company. I shopped all by myself. I got a manicure and a pedicure all by myself. Side note: is it just my shitty, peeling, paper-thin nails? Or does everyone's manicure start peeling by the end of day one and look completely trashy by the end of day two?

Andrew decided he really liked Papa John's remote control Porsche.Becca got to do whatever she wanted, with lots of attention, so naturally, she was happy.

I'm trying to get a grip on life now and looking forward to my parents' visit this coming weekend! We are loving all this grandparent time we're getting. It is fabulous!

My mani never lasts long either. No idea why. I think I'm just too rough on my hands. Always cooking, cleaning up something. Bumping hands into the car door, etc.

I went and saw FAME by myself the other night. I love alone time! Good for you!

Sounds like a great trip! Love the photos of everyone and especially the kids in their respective elements - the princess and the car driver!

I want to see FAME! And the Time Travelers Wife. And the list goes on....
Andrew is getting so big!!! Both of your kids are precious!

You have been busy!

I love fall, too, but we've had that discussion before, at least on the blogs. There's nothing quite like having the windows open and a cool breeze drifting in, while drinking a pumpkin spiced latte.

Are you reading Twilight??

I can hardly believe he is one already! Seriously, why does it have to go so fast.
