» Bright and early on a Saturday morning. We had every intention of going to the beach. But errands beckoned. (A certain little girl is turning 2 soon and we stopped at the party store to get balloons.)
» A practice balloon. You can't expect a toddler to leave the "bah-woon" store empty-handed! "Dis DJ Wock," she says, pointing to DJ Lance Rock.
» They're landing, we're leaving.
» Tunnel shots are an old favorite of mine. Alexa fell asleep in the car, so we took a cruise down PCH so she could get her nap in.
» Alexa's first Chuck E. Cheese experience. She rode this ride forever.
» Meanwhile, in Adultland.
» Alexa helps Daddy put together our new elliptical machine. It is not electric, all resistance bands, which means it's double the work and effing hardcore. Just an FYI.
» I have someone to break my shoes in for me now.
» Morning coffee, email check and watching President Obama get inaugurated.
» Raisin bagel with cream cheese. Nomnomnom.
» Standard Alexa breakfast: scrambled eggs with spinach, toast, blueberries and raspberries.
» And thus begins a rollicking round of Where Did the Attendant Park My Car?
» She thinks the car key unlocks everything.
» If the rain comes they run and hide their heads.
» Thursday evening grocery stop. I call H to ask what creamer he wants. He doesn't answer. I get the milk, though, because we always need milk. As soon as we put milk in the fridge, we need more milk.
» L.A. love note: I love your brightly painted, random restaurant murals.
» Sara and I hit the $2 thrift sale, and even though I haven't been out hardcore thrifting in awhile, I quickly blend in, kicking my basket around on the ground and overfilling it like a pro.
» Every time I check my cellphone Alexa requests, "Picture?" She then comes over to check my work. Little miss bossypants!
