This is My Newest Venture

after spending so much money on buying bows for madison...i decided that i was going to give making them a try.they cost me a fraction of the price that i have been buying them, i can make them according to the colors of her outfit and how big or small i want them to be. not bad ha?

Dirty Laundry

How can 4 people have so much dirty laundry? This is how my bed looks twice a week.

Trang's bday

We celebrated Trang's bday at Emeril's. It was so delicious. Out of all the food there my favorite has to be the corn bread (You can tell by how many pieces I had ...LOL)....Yummo!!! We had the bar-b-que shrimp and calamari for apps and each of us had a bowl of shrimp and chicken gumbo. Trang and I had the ribeye--delisss, Van had the redfish and Mary had the pork chops. We ended the night w/ a key lime mouse tart. Great food and great friends. See ya'll next month on Feb 8 at GW Finns.

Triple Chocolate Brownies

These came out so so moist. Thanks Madison for helping me w/ the pecans even thou half of them went into her mouth first. We went to William-Sonoma and got her a little baby apron.So so cute. I have to take picture of her and post it later.


is it always better? In this case it is. When we had Ethan we were trying to keep our cars but after going on a few trips back and forth to Thibby we realized that it would be impossible. So after much debate b/t Ted and I on which car to get ....we ended up trading in his Land Rover for my choice of vehicle (Ted---my old man--wanted a van...Honda Odysse)
I am loving this has so so much space for my 2 kiddos (Maddy loves it b/c it has her DVD) the double stroller and for all of my signs.
The only downfall is that I miss my BMW....but hey I can still drive it when I am alone running errands.So it is still win win situation for me.

Hours is what Ethan has been sleeping at night for the past 2 nights. It feels so good to be able to sleep more than 1 1/2 to 2 hours. I hope this continues and he will be sleeping thru the night. Madison didn't sleep thru the night until she was about 1 or 1 1/2 years old.

Doing what I Love Again

Triple Nutty Chocolate Trifle I have always love cooking but after having Ethan...I have been so busy w/ him and moving back into the house that I haven't been able to cook much less bake. This is the first thing that I have baked in such a long time. It is great to get back into the kitchen again and try out my many many new recipes.

BaCk to A ScHeDuLe

Well..i guess it is back down to earth for us now. no more living in our pj all day long... no more sleeping in late or staying up late, not having to set our alarm clock was so good. Maddy has been back to school for 2 weeks now and i am finally getting back on schedule. Having 2 kids is such a big more fly by the seat of my pant kind of girl.I have to take out my planner and start filling it in w/ appointments and functions. i have to sit down and plan out my week day by day...even hour by hour. my New Years Resolutions !!!
