Random Ramblings of a Housewife

A few random things going on here these days:

--I made two amazing quiches tonight with our leftover Thanksgiving ham and I may or may not have had almost three servings.

--I watched Grey's Anatomy today while Olivia took her nap and I can't for the life of me understand why none of the ladies on the show have jumped on Jackson Avery.  He's by far the McSteamiest, McDreamiest doctor on the show.

--I think I must drive Olivia crazy because I ask her at least 1,000 times a day for a kiss.  Thankfully she complies about 865 of those times.  Best kisses ever.

--David is attempting to make his dad's ham/bean soup tonight.  OH MY.  He has two pots going with about 5 pounds of ham, 2 pounds of beans, carrots, onions and jalapenos.  FYI, I hate ham and beans.

--A new In-N-Out opened north of our house while we were in Arizona.    {We've been drooling over it's progress for the last few months.} On our way home from the airport, we stopped and waited in a line of 20 cars for cheeseburgers & fries.  Dear In-N-Out, Every time feels like the first time.

--We had our pictures taken a few weeks ago by our friend Maren and it is taking everything I have not to share them with you.  They are SOOOO beautiful.

--This dog lover is afraid is terribly afraid that she is raising a cat lover.

--We got Olivia a toilet training potty today.  She's been letting us know when she has a dirty diaper, so we brought one home to get her used to sitting on it.  Crazy to think she's old enough to know what's going on.

--Speaking of crazy, I video chatted with my parents tonight on their flight home from Atlanta.  Who would have thought that would ever be possible?

--UGH, I haven't even started on Olivia's photo album for her second year.  I should probably get on that soon.

--This may be my favorite age of Olivia so far.  Although, I think I say that every month.

--We went shopping up in SLO yesterday for a couple hours with Olivia.  I think she had fun on the carts - what do you think?

--She didn't have fun with Santa Claus.  I'll get that picture scanned and post it soon.

--Today's cold weather and sprinkles put a damper on our brilliant idea of using our tiny pumpkins as target practice, but it sure made it nice to cuddle up on the couch in front of the fireplace.

--David and I watched Inception the other night.  Holy Confusing, Batman!  I do not know what the dude who wrote that one was smoking.  

--And, it's 10:20 and I'm heading to bed.  Sweet {non-scary} dreams, dear readers.

Happy Saturday from the Central Coast!

I'm hoping Olivia just has a fondness for all animals, a cat being one of them. I hope the cat doesn't turn out to be her favorite. (Sorry all you cat lovers who might read this). Holding my breath to see what she is going to do next when you take her shopping!!!!

Loving your blog. SUPER cute. And aren't those little Oero Pops just the most sinful things ever {well maybe not ever}.

Oh hope you do not mind if I follow you! I promise to try to not turn into a stalker :-D

Jackson Avery - absolutely! I have a feeling that Olivia is an animal lover - period...cats, dogs, giraffes, barn animals, etc.! Hopefully she won't want to bring them all home! Seeing Olivia on the cart reminds me of when M&K were little...and now Arden and Anders do the same thing. What fun for little kids to explore!
