John's Bday

Jim Gaffigan is a favorite comedian of ours, and a few weeks ago I decided to see if he was touring anywhere near us.  Turns out he was performing in Denver on John's birthday weekend!  I scored some great tickets and told John I was planning a surprise evening.  

We got in the car Saturday night and I told him to drive north on the highway... and as we approached Denver, directed him to downtown.  We parked and then I walked him over to H&M - a fabulously cheap, trendy clothing store that's new to Denver.  John got some smokin hot clothes (both because of their price, and because of how good he looks in them).  :)  I'd like to point out that I was successful in making this stop strictly for John... I didn't look at/buy anything for myself!

I know you can't really see him, but trust me - it's John

Next up I took him to a great little restaurant that I had found on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives - family owned and operated, Sam's No. 3 diner.  We both got yummy, greasy cheeseburgers... fries were my side, and a little crock of mac & cheese was John's.  (How can you not love a place that offers a mac&cheese crock as a side??)  And then John FORCED me to share a chocolate shake with him.  [John: You wanna split a chocolate shake?  Me: Yep.]  

I love this fella.

Then it was time for the show!  I walked us over to the theater... and luckily we didn't see any signage outside, so John still had no clue what we were doing.
Heading into the theater - the surprise continues
At our seats... and now he finally knows we're seeing Jim Gaffigan

The show was ABSOLUTELY hysterical - we loved it.  He did a bunch of new material, and then closed with some of his prior stuff:  bacon... hot pockets... McDonalds.  (Have you heard him talk about the bonus fry at the bottom of your McDonalds bag?  Kills me.)

Such a fun night celebrating my amazing hubby.  Love you so much, babe!

5 Months Old

Tiny Kate is growing!  She's gaining weight well and is finally out of her 3 month clothes... although a lot of that is due to her length.  :)   But she's doing great.  She's such a happy, content baby.  People always comment on what a good baby she is... then you have the people that say lovely things like "enjoy it while you can - you're next one probably won't be that way" or "just wait until she gets older".  Bless their hearts.  ;)  We really are thankful though.  

At 5 Months Old, Kate:
  • rolls her tongue
  • giggles at Daddy
  • sleeps 12 hours at night
  • is not however, sleeping through church anymore... which means it's time for the nursery!
  • pulls my hair down by her face when she's tired
  • sits up with the help of a pillow
  • is eating rice cereal, and about ready to start fruits and veggies  (I have to try and frown while I feed her.  I started out making faces and opening my mouth so she'd mimic me.  Just she smiled at me instead.)

Not staying put so much anymore...

And here's a clue about what Kate will be for Halloween!

Don't be jealous.  But this is the phone I've rocked for the last few years. And the last year I've had it, the front screen has been out (which may or may not have been due to dropping it in a glass of water) so I always had to open it to the flip keyboard to use it.  A few months ago, we were traveling when I realized I had forgotten my phone charger at home. I set out to try and buy one - going to every store you'd imagine (including the Sprint store), only to find out that my phone was too old and unpopular to still sell its accessories. :(  Ouch.

We decided it was time for me to upgrade my phone, so I've now joined the world of the iPhone users.  I didn't want to be the person who got an iPhone and then kept saying "I don't know how I ever lived without it!"  But.  I sorta don't know how I ever lived without it. :)

Anywho. Goodbye frosted pink Pantech phone... hello fabulous, life-changing iPhone. 

PS - I snapped this pic as John was watching a video of the new iPhone5 the day Apple released it. John's enthralled - which was expected. But Kate too?  She was enamored... poor little thing.
