life rearranged

A decadent dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.
bread and butter, hold the bread
sweet and froufy drink with strawberry, raspberry, basil
A night at the opera to see the famed Renee Flemming.  I'm not an opera buff like my sis, but her voice is a spectacular instrument.  Didn't even wear a microphone.

Renee Flemming in concert- magnificent!

 Baby play date with Aime at my fav coffee shop, Portola Coffee Lab.
 I splurged on this candle specifically to light while doing taxes.  I get really stressed out talking to Turbotax's clueless support staff for hours over glitches in the software. I'll never get those hours of my life back.
 BUT they are done, and our refund is the exact amount of my remaining student loan which means: a)  the govt is taking way too much of joe's paycheck each month and we need to fix that.  b) WE'RE DEBT FREEEEEE (except the house, of course). huge moment!  monumental!
 Paleo dinner- crab stuffed portabello mushrooms, butternut squash cooked in bacon, and pear-glazed pork tenderloin.
 The first lily to crack open.
 Sisi enjoying her sweet potato and cheeseburger.  I sometimes get jealous of her lunches, they are so good.

 I don't shy away from color when dressing my little one. The brighter the better! :)

I am jealous of your first two outings. What an exciting week!

I think I gave Sisi that poofy clip thing :) I love that you dress in such bright clothes. It's not as easy to do that with boys...

Courtney- Yes! You gave me a pair of light pink clips, and then i went to natty bratty's etsy store ( and bought a bunch of them. they are a crazy cute addition to any outfit. i don't see them in her shop anymore though :(

Oh my goodness, Sisi is too cute!! I'm hoping I get to dress a little girl someday, and I will not hold back on the color either :) Yaay for being debt free!! Congrats, that is huge!
