SPRING has ARRIVED in PHX (3 wks ago)

Dinner and some Rent

Date night - we went to dinner and Rent Friday night. Hon was wanting to see it so I picked up the tix a couple weeks back. Nice show - for a musical. Not a big fan of musicals when singing is ALL they do but it was a good show overall. The cast had great voices and we had good seats which helps. The kids have been playing the soundrack to death over the past 6 mos. so I warmed up to it, I suppose.

The evening itself was gorgeous. We walked down Mill Ave. to kill some time and it was the most perfect temperature with a slight breeze picking up the aromatic flavors from the cigar shop down the street. I almost wished we'd come down a bit earlier to enjoy a longer leisure walk.
Anyway, Grandma and Grandpa watched the babes overnight for us. After picking them up Saturday afternoon we all went out to eat and I caught some pics of Grayson - guess he was hungry. As soon as his older brother's dish was set down he dove right in and sampled the mash. Apparently it was too his liking because as he went for seconds he made the most of it and I got it all on "film" - sort of.

Yea, we'll be working on table manners very soon. But it was pretty damn funny to watch!

When Annie met Mickey

Something truly magical occurred! These are just a few from Leibovitz for the Disney campaign they've been running for the past two or three years, I think... These are just some of my favorites. Looking forward to riding in Disney - feel like I didn't get to enjoy it to the fullest last time around being 6 mos. along and all :)

So - I have been planning, or trying to plan, a trip to LA (Cali) for some time.
It was to be a gathering of me and my sisters; we'd reconnect, get away, relax. I'd show them some places to eat (read E & O Trattoria!!) and chill out (read SHOP) on Venice.

Getting the details ironed out has been a bear but we're getting close. I need to visit Tony!

Make the water dance, my man, make it dance! "Where's the ocean..."

...only two hours left of enjoying watching you. Did ANYONE see Bette Porter (Jennifer Beals) on L Word last night?! I don't think she's ever looked so fantastic. While her and Tina were dancing their seductive "Back to Life" number I was captivated. Thank goodness for Tivo. I get to watch it at least another couple of times before I decide to delete it. Hmmm...maybe I won't delete least not until Swingtown starts up again. When is that coming back on anyway?

Well, I guess it's all due to Hon being in Vegas on convention. Took the whole week off so I could chill out with the babes. Got a lot of stuff done that I needed to handle - planted the garden, cleaned the house, pre-cooked meals for the week. Ahhh, the nice quiet, CLEAN house. I smile each time I walk in the door.

Hon asked if I was going by our friends to discuss some book details. We've been looking to meet up for a few weeks but haven't had time. Although I'd enjoy the brainstorming session I hate to use a "home alone" day to go to someplace else to hang out. I would much rather wait til everyone comes back home again. An excuse to escape for some me time, ya know? Anyway, back to it - got things to do.
