The long awaited update!
As promised... Here's all the random (that word was just for you, Mom) stuff that's been keeping me away from hearth and blog over the last week or so...
Yoav took me ATVing for our anniversary last week (that is, we went last week; our anniversary was only yesterday on the English calendar, tonight on the Hebrew). We had to go last week to get the full moon, because we went for a moonlit tour!! A very, very dusty moonlit tour.
From the before and after shots there you see how my husband looked like Rav Elazar ben Azarya, replete with white beard. Jeepers! Happy eighth anniversary to us! You'll be happy to know the dust DID all wash out of our clothes (I should be happy - at least Yoav didn't wear a TIE, just a white shirt. Gevalt.)
A benevolent grandmother gave us a package of headbands a while back, and the girl has taken to liking them, a lot! Note that unlike other mothers, I waited until my child actually HAD some hair before I put headbands on her - none of those random garter looking things on my baldy! Of course, she still has her grandfather's hairline, but we can pray...
Anyway, she likes to wear more than one at once, hence this shot. Note her increasing artistry as well! Thanks again to Brenda for these non-toxic crayons, she said as she got little crayon bits out of her daughter's mouth..
Enter Bill Cosby!
Nechy and co. came for shabbos last week, and brought us a Brooklyn Bake Shop cake. Yumm... but, not on our diets. So, what to do with it? Hey! Dinner for the kiddo!
Never fear - she's still sitting pretty at 20 pounds.
Let's see what else happened... Last night I didn't blog because I was making up a wedding invitation for a couple who was married, then both converted together, and now they're getting married again - so cute! Not blogging, but for a good cause.
Work is crazy now. I really, really, REALLY need someone to work nights for the next two months. I offered to fly in my brother, but he said no... Any takers? But you have to start Sunday. And have a brain.
Oh, and Monday night we were at Esther Brody's wedding (and Tuesday night at sheva brachos - see why I haven't been blogging??).
Esther works in my office, besides me having known her since seminary, and we were all so excited to be at the wedding (look SR, a kallah! "Kaleh!"), so much so that I've almost forgiven her for getting married during our busy season at work (sheesh, she coulda eloped like 6 weeks ago!!).
My new quest is to pick out and buy something from www.flor.com. It is SO wicked awesome cool (was that an 80s phrase or what?), not the least because when it's dirty you pick up the offending square and wash it in the sink! Thanks Shira for the tip off. Now go back to work.
And with that, I think we're up to date. Whew!
addendum: Oh yeah, and I went to the dentist yesterday. No cavities!! Yay! Yoav, on the other hand, has 'em. That must be what happened. He lost weight in his teeth!
