hubs vaycay 2k9 – in progress.

September 5, 2009

so as you all know, my hubs works awfully hard so that i don’t have to go to work. he works his day job 40-50 hours a week, and does side work at least 2 days after work, plus every saturday, all day. we miss him tons and even when he is home, he is beat. this weekend he took off thursday, friday and gets monday off for the holiday. thursday he did all of his sidework so he could hang with us guilt-free for the other 4 days. we are having too much fun!

yesterday we went and had lunch with GG, and then headed to babies r’ us to get Harper a new carseat. we had jamba juice (peanut butter moo’d owns my face hole, just sayin’), came home and all took a rad nap. very good day. today we slept in a bit, i made coffee and egg/cheese/everything bagel breakfast sammiches, and vegged out. hit up tar-jay with my mama and Harper tried out her new big girl carseat:september 092

she l-o-v-e loves it. we also bought a big mirror so we can see her (should have bought that mmmmonths ago, doh), and she really likes making faces at herself and dancing into it. SO CUTE. the biggest change with the big carseat is that now we don’t have the option of carrying her in anywhere in her carseat. this should be interesting since if i go to the bank or grab coffee, etc, i have to completely take her out and carry her. like tonight, we went to Lele for dinner (i’m not even kidding, my obsession for pho these days is out.of.control) and we were like “omg, do they even have highchairs?” luckily they did, but if they didn’t, we couldn’t eat there – and then we’d have a really big problem – unhappy mandy. happily, they do and the little squirt joyfully sat through our whole meal, snacking on mum-mums and flirting with other tables. we overheard one lady saying “can you beleive that baby? she hasn’t made a peep this whole time, she’s just sitting there.” we are SO lucky with how well she does in public. i attribute it to the fact that we take her everwhere we go, and have since she was about 2 weeks old. i’m convinced she’d rather be in public than at home. september 135

anywho, Lele has this freaking rice noodle soup (basically pho, but pho is a southern vietnam dish where this one is northern) with roasted chicken. instead of putting the chicken in the soup, they bring you half a chicken on the side (it’s more the size of a game hen, not a full size chicken). anyways, it’s the crispiest, most delicious chicken EVAR and i feel borderline fat kid even talking this much about one dish. i can’t help it, it’s that good. thank gawd they have highchairs.

this time with Scot home is so awesome. just doing everyday stuff with him and Harper has made me so happy! and we still have 2 more glorious days! tomorrow, aaron’s birthday bbq and who knows what monday will bring. before i go, peep this ADORABLE pic of my two faves. framerrrrrrr.september 131

    Yay! Glad to hear Scot got some much deserved time off. I am also thrilled that Harper likes her new seat. It’s also a great work out for mom, having to haul them everywhere and run after them in the stores. Well, Harper isn’t running yet, but soon enough! :) Enjoy the vaca!
