This guy.  So proud of him.


We went here to celebrate.  Delish.  Anything on the menu will knock your socks off.  Red Iguana, we heart you.  Everything on the menu.   It is a MUST when you are in town.  You will not be disappointed.  YUMMMM.  It’s B’s favorite so it was fitting.

B’s two biggest fans.


christmas babysitting

Since B&I don’t have kids and we have lots of n&n’s we are the “go to” sitters.  Which is cool.  I think of it as my sis T said “adding more to the bowl of infinity favors”.  Pretty much i’m front loading my life by helping with our 17 n&n’s and their awesome, but tired, parents.   I figure, babysit occasionally now and have infinity IOU’s later.  B isn’t always on the band wagon to babysit, but is always a good sport.  He is known to take bribes in choc milk.  Truth is, we really like our n&n’s despite how crazy they are sometimes.  I don’t like changing poo though, it’s so da^* nasty and B dry heaves if he is within 100 miles of the bum so that is always fun.   He has never changed a diaper…like ever.

Anyway, we tended my sis’s 3 crazy nugs and sure do love them.  They are crazy, and adorable, and fun.  We ate dinner; it’s annoying how much kids dislkie veggies.  Mr. K, who’s 4 thought eating 1 pea and 3 peices of corn would compensate for the 100 lbs of sugar he’d want to consume.  HA!  Miz E also threw her peas on the ground which I’m still stepping on  and Miz S could not get enough to eat.  Dinner w/ Kids = chaos.  We really enjoy our peaceful quiet dinners with just the two of us.

After dinner we headed to see the lights at our cute community park, followed by hot-coco & christmas movie/story time.  It was fun and kids are fun to hang out with.  We are always glad when their parents arrive and we are off duty!  Can I just say,  I love it when B busts out the dad like discipline when they don’t listen. Picture big teddy bear man handeling 4 year old who keeps punching baby sister in the face.  He was on time out in the car, B stood guard.  And that Miz E, she is getting more and more spunk as time goes by.  Watch out!

Cute Mr. K and his coco.  Notice the yellow counter tops.   70’s gem!

the killers


killers post show

Can u tell our ears were riingiiing?

It’s only because we had our minds blown by the killers.  I think that this had to be one of the best shows i’ve seen.  I love Brandon Flowers’s songwriting.  They are rockstars.  In fact, when B and I had just met, the killers was one of the first things we established that we both liked, in our little budding friendship.   I didn’t realize they were huge and thought they were a little indie band; Indie band that has 4 quatrillion fans.  I’m a nerd.


Do you like that little indie band, aka the Killers?


Why does spontaneity make me feel alive?  For some reason drastically altering the pre-conceived course of my life, or my day, makes me feel like I really am in charge of my own destiny.  My choices really are driving this ship; good and bad.  I like that feeling.

Today I bought flights to this place, for a little 30th B-day surprise for B.  Can’t wait.  Wasn’t planning on buying them but came across a great deal/flight.  I had B convinced the surprise was 3 months of dancing lessons 3x a week.  He wasn’t very excited about that.  It thought I was funny.  T thought I was evil.  Later that night, I just had to tell him so he could be excited with me.  I’m not sure if he was more excited to NOT have to do dancing lessons that he was for an awesome vaca.
