1. Birthday Trifecta Week is over. Three birthdays, three parades, three cakes, three birthday dinners.
My feast was the best. Patrick grilled salmon (and Italian sausages because he has that thing about fish) AND he grilled avocados for this Grilled Avocado and Tomato Salad recipe from John Besh. Grilled avocado is a brand new wonderful thing that we are going to eat a lot of this summer.
Edmund won't finish a book because he "doesn't like it." I told him I finish every book I start. His response, "You're a geek." I said to give it to page 100, then decide.
Patrick said, "You're right." I said, "I know. You can't tell until page 100 if it's worth it or not."
Patrick said, "No, he's right. You are a geek."
I get no respect.
3. Jill adores Polly. Worships her. And speaks to her in this weirdly deep voice, "Heh behbeh."
Heh Heh beh beh. Heh Chubs.
Speaking of Polly, she walks. She only takes steps if no one is looking or paying attention to her. She's a baby ninja.
4. Things are gorgeous here.
Last weekend, Lucy changed up our exterior home decor with a spot of paint. Don't you love it? I sure do.
Check out our entry way now! Look at all of those hooks just waiting to be overloaded with jackets and bags.
7. Today is Prom!!!
Today is also the four hour European history test from noon to four so send up a prayer that we can get her hairs done by 11:30am. I fired up my hot rollers for a test drive last night and she's been scouring Pinterest.
Unfortunately, my Irish-dance-wig-putting-on skills are not helping me at all.
Linking up with This Ain't the Lyceum.
Have a pulchritudinous weekend!
