today was a fun day. i went to my friends' house for lunch with my mom. my friends are 5, 3, and somewhere between 1 and 2. oh yeah, these are 3 of the 4 coolest little kids in the world that used to be on my list on here. i guess their mom is my friend too, since she's the one that really invited us. we had tomato soup, pasta salad, cantaloupe and blueberries, and a brownie with "whoop cream" and strawberries for dessert. i'm very thankful my allergies have changed over the past year or so, or i would've been a very bad guest and gone home very hungry. all three of them are very funny (even though the youngest doesn't actually SAY much) and very well-behaved. i think they have pretty much the best manners i have ever seen. i would absolutely have kids right now if i could be guaranteed they'd be as good as these kids! i get to spend a week in mexico with my other cool kid in a few weeks. he isn't as well-behaved as these three, but just as cute and funny! after lunch k-dogg and i went to see kung fu panda. it was good, way better than shrek 3 which was the last dreamworks movie i saw. i'm still not sure what kind of animal their master is, and one fight scene was a little too scary for little kids, i thought. probably would not have even noticed if my 3 year-old friend hadn't just told me that the brother bear soundtrack has a "bad, scary song" on it. but it was really funny and cute and not full of double-meaning jokes that really shouldn't be in animated movies in the first place! by the time the movie was over, it was time to eat again, so we went to my favorite italian place and split a really unusual dessert. we normally get tiramisu, but tried the raspberry pyramid this time. it's a pyramid made of white chocolate. when you cut into the shell, it has cake and cream and raspberries inside! unfortunately for my sister, bean, both this place and our favorite pizza place will be closed the week she's here to visit! guess we'll have to come up with a back-up plan!
i'm a Christian, wife, mom to the most awesome kid...ever, daughter, sister, texan, teacher, survivor of my grandparents :), niece, cousin, sister-in-law, daughter-in-law, individual that was probably born in the wrong time. i live in a too-big for me house with my husband and our son and some people think i'm spoiled because my mom cleans our house. but, actually, i was spoiled way before that! i teach 4th grade ela and texas history...yes, that means the dreaded staar test! i like being just a little too weird for people around here, taking pictures, modpodging everything, shopping, and music!
