Bullet List

Here's a quick summary since my last post:

  • On my visit to Texas I also got to see my grandfather, two of my cousins (Amy and Janet, muah!!) and their sweet children.

  • Our niece, D stayed with us for a week. We ate, shopped, people watched at the Renaissance Fair, rode an elephant, painted pottery and had a blast.

  • Got a new nickname-I will forever be Aunt Ellie to D.

  • Received the best manicure and pedicure ever from your typical walk in nail salon. I just have to deal with the Korean man saying things like, "Your skin is very dry. You need to put lotion on more often." Thanks Man, I'll try this "lotion" you speak of.

  • Went to an awesome baby shower for my friend Amy. It wasn't your typical shower. I think it was called a birthing party. It was very special and fun to be a part of.

  • Became addicted to pinterest. LOVE it-thanks Natalie. I made cucumber sandwiches to take to the birthing party from pinterest. If you're not on it, you should be!

  • Found out that John has to go to California for two weeks (he leaves tomorrow). Boo! He had to travel a lot this Fall and I HATED it.

  • Booked travel to see him in California. I fly to San Jose on Friday. We'll spend the weekend in Monterrey and then I'll come home on Tuesday (spring break).

  • Became addicted to "The United States of Tara". It's a show on Show Time about a woman with multiple personalities. We watched the first season Friday night and last night. We watched the 2nd season today. I can feel my a-s-s increasing in size as I write this. It's on watch it now in Net Flix if you're looking for something new to watch. It's awesome!!

Aunt Ellie is so cute. I love it. It really suits you. I like your bullet points. I would catch United States of Tara every once in a while but I always forgot to DVR it and then we lost our free trial of Showtime. I should get the whole thing on Netflix.

I read the title as bucket list. I was totally ready to read about your desire to go to Australia and go skydiving. I'm glad you love pinterest. I'm trying to get my mom on it. I pinned some stuff for her over the weekend and my friend texted me to say, OMG, your mom is pinning. Ha!

I love aunt Ellie--really cute! Bummer that John is traveling. Tim travels all the time. I use it as an excuse to eat crackers for dinner :)
