Once upon a time Brooke and I went outside to go get the mail and somehow ended up snoozing on a lounge chair by the pool for an hour. You really all need to come visit because I cannot get over the amazing California breeze we have 24/7. I am truly sorry Utah but I will not miss your extreme temperatures and the snow and ice that made me fall on my face 2 times a week. Did I tell you that I will be in Utah for 1.7 weeks around Thanksgiving time?!? It is going to be incredible.
Speaking of my family, my mom was showing Curly (new readers: Curly is my 3 year old niece) the blog and as soon as Brooke’s picture loaded Curly said, “Baby Brooke! She my best friend.” I cannot wait to see these two play together.
After we both got an awesome nap we went to the store to get a treat for Billy. But first I taught her all about the different fruits and vegetables. Her favorite were the oranges and I think she is just like Billy in the sense that she doesn’t want anything to do with tomatoes.
The treat that I went to go get for Billy (don’t you love saying that you did it for someone else when in fact you were probably more excited about it than they are) was to get some Horchata. Horchata is a Mexican cinnamon and rice drink that is incredible. We are both hooked. I wanted to get it because I had taco night planned and what better way to wash down tacos than with a sugary drink.
I teared up last night when I was making dinner because I realized I reached chef status. You know you are a chef when you use all four burners at one time to create your meal. This is the first time this has ever happened to me because for years my biggest kitchen accomplishment was making one pot that included both macaroni and cheese and cut up hot dogs.
Taco salad from heaven. Complete with Mexican rice, beans, tomatoes, sour cream, ground beef and 1/3 quart of salsa added after the photo. Once again I impressed Billy with my salad heighth, 5 inches tall.
I finally experienced something that Billy suffers through on a daily occurrence and I didn’t like it one bit. I kind of felt the ‘I’m too full for dessert’ thing but being the brave/hardworking/persevering person that I am pushed through it and had dessert anyways.
Brooke went to bed crazy early and Billy and I watched a few episodes of Mad Men and hit the sack at 9:30. The crazy life of a first year law student and a mom that stays home and takes 500 pictures of her daughter a day, tough work.
PS Billy rocked 3.5 miles at a 7:20 pace yesterday, I am a proud wife.
Are you looking forward to snow or change of seasons? Do you live in a place where you experience all four seasons?
How many times a week do you cook?
-I am getting hooked and really enjoying it so I will probably cooke 5 times a week and eat leftovers the other two days.
Is there a fruit or vegetable that you don’t want anything to do with?
Ever tried Horchata? Do you have a favorite sugary drink?
