Sunday we did the unthinkable & grilled burgers, with REAL beef. Yeah, go ahead and gasp. & if you want another huge gasp, that even my mother had the biggie over, we grilled Kirk*land brand hotdogs last weekend that were the bomb. For those of you that know me, know how odd those 2 meals are and the rarity of it all. So anyhoo, we lounged by the pool and because life seems to be coming at me full throttle, my loving husband made the best cocktails ever.
They were as pretty as a rainbow!
3 different kinds of rums, cranberry, pineapple and blue pucker.
Way to complicated for this simple minded gal. That's why I just drink beer. It's easy, you just twist the cap.
The next few pictures are just of W doing his best swim moves.
To watch him jump in the pool is nothing short of funny. Look at the angle that he goes in and how funny his face is. I think it screams "OUCH" but apparently he thinks it screams "FUN."
I am hoping to get to some thank you's and room photos soon, I'm just a little overwhelmed with life at the moment. It will be soon, I promise.
& BTW: WHERE IS MY TA???? We need our girl home. Pronto.
& how 'bout that SWINE FLU thing???? Of course it would happen right now during our travel time....because everything ridiculous and completely shitty will happen on our wait. Ridiculous.

So I'm way to tired to put together a 'packing list' because I find the whole task very daunting. I figure if I need a list, then I'm over packing. So I'm going to take the easy way out and ask all of you BTDT folks a few questions....if I may borrow a bit of your time....?
1. Besides electronics, what was the thing that you are most glad you took to China?
2. What was the thing that you wished you would have dragged to the other side of the world?
3. What do you wish you would have brought with you & didn't?
I'm open to all unsolicited advice, pour it on me baby!

Our island kids spend hours looking for treasures....
& sometimes they bring back more than crabs.
He's one cool dog & he's cute!
I have waited 13 years to buy some girl clothes. I always thought the boys were getting the shaft, but Sunday's shopping trip proved to me that there is a serious need for cool chic clothing.

W: "My sisdar?"
me: "yeah, the one wearing the pink jacket in the photo."
W: "She's cute, that's my sisdar....& I'm going to share my cars with her....& I'll give her my blue bear."
me: "Wow, that's love...but you can keep your blue bear just for you, since we got her a pink bear all of her own."
The care package was mailed off today. Here's what we included for the low shipping price of $45.78, she's totally worth it, but I really hope it gets to her...not holding out much hope though. I included the 'pink bear' with her photo attached because we will be taking one just like it to China. The family photo album, 2 disposable cameras with her photo and Chinese name written on it, a toy, a snack & some chocolates for the nannies.
So who was around when this photo was taken??? Anyone? Anyone?
It was taken in November of 2006 & I look like crud because the boat had just docked & I hadn't showered. So PugMama gave us these beautiful pillow cases with our girls name on them. I'm very happy to now have it on the pillow for display.....
2 out of 4 kept their name...but what is so funny about it all is that I was the only one that didn't want to lock into a name 100% for multiple reasons that I won't get in to. We all know that PIPO didn't use Jadyn & PM didn't use Ava. I do believe that Col would have changed Hannah's name had it not been inked around her husbands arm...which would not have been nice to change at that point. =0) Funny, but not nice. & just because I pulled this tee out today to pack for China...... it was a smashing gift from Pipo & one that still rings true for all of us.

Within one week, she has captivated my heart and I have fallen so deeply in love with her face that it physically hurts. One week ago....we celebrated Emerson Grace with a beautiful little cake that J's friend had made up at the last moment.
