Adele’s a lucky lady!
Adele’s First Thanksgiving November 30, 2012
Although our Thanksgiving Weekend started with an awful stomach bug that attacked EVERYONE in our house…. we still had a wonderful and relaxing time in San Francisco. In order to maximize family time, we decided to eat out for Thanksgiving. (I think my first time doing that ever!) We went to Black Angus! (That’s one for the baby book, right?) It was actually perfect. Good food. Good company.
Part of the reason was that it was her first time ever having food! We’re doing the baby-led weaning approach (no purees, no spoons, no rice cereal) so we just handed her some pieces of lettuce, tomato and bread! She only had a few bites of each, but survey says she was impressed!!!
Catch her in action:
We haven’t finished reading the BLW Book yet so we’re holding off on giving her any more food until we have a game plan, but it was fun to share Thanksgiving Dinner with Adele. She’s certainly part of the family and we can tell she’s happy to be here too!
A Year to be Thankful For! November 21, 2012
I am equally thankful and grateful for Irving, my family and my friends (new and old!) I couldn’t have made it through this year without them.
And since I became a mom, I see new reasons everyday to be thankful: running water, heat, the ability to buy whatever food I want, the freedom to vote, my dream of living in Los Angeles, my health….
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!
Thanksgiving in the Mid-West December 11, 2011
I know, I know, Thanksgiving was weeks ago. But we had a fantastic trip to Indiana and Illinois so I had to share some of our photos. On Thanksgiving Day, we flew from LA to Indianapolis where Irving’s sister picked us up and brought us to their gorgeous new house. We arrived just an hour before dinner was served (good timing, right?!) We all got straight to work preparing the remaining side dishes. It was so fun to chat, cook and catch up since we don’t get to see them often!
They went all out with the most amazing, unique dishes. My favorite was the corn bread stuffing (amazing)! Per usual, there was not enough room on our plates for everything. They even had homemade pies with matching homemade whipped cream on top. I die.
We spent the night cleaning up, hanging out and relaxing all together. And there was LOTS of playing with the kitties involved too. This little one slept with us each night all cuddled up close. It was adorable. We miss her!
The next day, forget Black Friday, we spent our time sightseeing around Indianapolis instead. We stopped at the Lily Estate, which is an Americana mansion built in the 1920s. We visited the Newport Mansions over the summer and were excited to see some more.
Then we hopped over to the Indianapolis Museum of Art right next door.
We were so impressed by the exhibits they had inside. It was mostly contemporary art, but some really cool stuff. Lots of interactive displays and art that utilized unique mediums. Afterwards, we stopped to enjoy some beer, hot cocoa (for me!) and some hot pretzels in the museum café. And then we were just in time to see a gorgeous sunset off the balcony.
I might be getting my days mixed up now, but I think we then stopped at a fro-yo place right after this too. We had excellent hosts while we were there!
Great views of the city, and good exercise too. So fun.
