Happy Halloween!

by Kristi on October 31, 2007 · 1 comment

Yesterday was Justin’s birthday! Happy Birthday, honey! I took him out to dinner and surprised him with Mike & Ang who were sitting at the table! We had him fooled! We went to Blue Coral, which is a seafood restaurant next to Fashion Island. It was very yummy. The lobster bisque was almost as good […]

We had birthday dinner over at Sharon’s tonight. MMMmmm, she made a huge turkey dinner! My Mom & John also came over to celebrate too! I thought Sam was going to pass out with both of her Grandma’s & Grandpa’s around her! haha – She was in rare form. It was tons of fun though. […]

I’ve been browsing Pottery Barn for Kids for ideas on Sam’s new room. Her new room is really shaped oddly. I’m going to have to map it out and figure out where everything will go. The window goes low and the wall is pushed out. Then the wall comes back in for about 3 feet. […]

I’m so sick of it being pitch black out when Sam wakes up. It’s to early… and then it feels to early. I guess it won’t with Daylight Savings Time coming up next week! But that sucks too! LOL – Ugh!


Big Bear

by Kristi on October 24, 2007 · 5 comments

We were going to go to Big Bear this weekend with some friends for Justin’s birthday. We cancelled this morning. Honestly, we probably still would have went because the back way (Hwy38) is wide open and the fire was so far from Big Bear… but Justin got deathly ill last night and we cancelled this […]

Anaheim Hills Fire!!

by Kristi on October 23, 2007 · 1 comment

There is a huge fire above our office! The hills behind the park (Sycamore Park?? I forget the name) are all ablaze. Weir Canyon is completely closed going up the hill and Islands at the Festival is saying that many of their employees can’t get to work because of the road closures. Mike Lalonde lives […]

I just want to be sure everyone heard the news…. I’m sure they have. It’s everywhere! Dumbledore is gay. Yup. She outed him at a reading last Friday. Read some of the transcript here. More fun info in that link too.

The lights are starting to blink on and off…. Power surges? How long will our power last, you think, with these wild hurricane winds? 7 fires total going on… My Aunt Trish used to live right in one of the mandatory evacuation areas of Malibu. Luckily they moved! My Mom talked to my cousin Nicole […]


One Year Ago

by Kristi on October 21, 2007 · 3 comments

Read This. Did you read it? Yea. This morning, as Sam was opening up our junk drawer where the scissors were at the end of the drawer and she could probably reach them, Justin said… “Maybe we should baby proof this house someday.” No, really? I parrotted back his words to him (the ones he […]


Good Deals

by Kristi on October 20, 2007 · 1 comment

Nice! I wanted to download Quicken to keep track of all my online activity and start watching my budget online. Well, I did the free trial a few months ago (had problems synching my Wamu account with them – which they finally fixed four months later) so I decided to buy it today. When I […]

Aww, Sammie had a fun day with Grandma JJ yesterday! Making “coo coos”, partying in the cantina, and… does it look like? Yes it does. Pole dancing! LOL See the cute pics. It was also my first day of putting her in pig tails!!! I think they were a bit lopsided?


Big Bird or Elmo

by Kristi on October 17, 2007 · 3 comments

We tried on Sam’s Halloween costume this afternoon. Of course, after she preens and giggles at herself in the fireplace reflection by the time I got my camera she got shy. She was also probably roasting since I put it on top of her pants and long sleeved shirt. She has an adoring relationship with […]

WHY must I read directions at least FOUR times to get something to work? Gah. Seriously. Every time. I read something, go along on my merry way. Stare at it for awhile when it doesn’t work. Read one part of the directions again. Fiddle with something to make it work. Stare at it some more. […]
