Why, after doing all the laundry for a week, do the numbers of underwear per girl vary so much?  Here are the results for 7 days:
Elli = 7 pairs
Addie = 4 pairs
Amelia = 12 pairs

I'm not really sure how to crunch these numbers, being a girl and all, maybe I'll ask Jason to use his manish-math analyzing skillz. (said tongue-in-cheek)

Much Better

I must admit, I have been struggling the past 8 months to be a supportive wife.  Jason got tired of having the same haircut/style for 10 years.  His hairstyle when we got married my brothers affectionately called the "Zach Morris" and lucky for Jason all our wedding pictures have his blonde bangs blowing in the wind reminding us that we are old enough to have "dated" pictures, ouch!  It was within a few months that he cut it short and had stuck with it, until late last year when he started growing it out.  He gave a variety of reason for his decision, was he:
waiting for the housing market to recover to cut it, somehow willing a recovery the way a bowler leans to the right willing the ball to veer?
trying to look younger like those shaggy hair kids these days are wearing?
trying to look older, like Gordon Gecko from Wall Street?
seeing just how much I meant our wedding vows "for better or worse"?
just seeing what he looked like with long hair?
I did the best I could by biting my tongue, remembering if you don't have anything nice to say, yada, yada, yada.  His dad walked right past him in the airport when they met up last month, then upon realizing who the new Jason was, greeted him with a "We need to get you a haircut."
Jason decided last week the time had come, his longer hair took too much time and effort.  This experiment taught us a curious family trait.  My babies have all grown their hair in the back quicker than their hair up top thus displaying the very popular and desirable "mullet".  We now know they get this from their dad, who had this same growth pattern, very interesting!
after - aahh, isn't he cute :)

Hippity Hoppity, Easter Came Our Way!

We had fun coloring eggs, making foam wreaths, eating jell-o beans, following clues to find our baskets, wearing our new swimsuit right out of the basket, wearing new dresses to church to learn about the REAL Easter celebration, and a yummy dinner at Grandma Joyce & Grandpa Kim's.

Diamonds in the City

This past weekend was our 2nd annual sisters weekend.  The rules are simple:
No children,
No husbands, (is that redundant with rule #1?)
No excuses.
Last year we had a beautiful weekend in Laguna Beach, this year we chose San Francisco where we all left our heart years ago.
Here is the quick & dirty of our weekend:
Friday - lunch at Nordstrom Bistro - yummy; the best/most relaxing pedicure ever at the Nordstrom spa - I'm pretty sure I dozed off for a moment or two based on the drool I had to wipe up (not really, but my sister did catch a photo op of me with my mouth hanging open,) and for the trifecta of Nordstrom, MAC did all our make-up.  We went to a seafood restaurant called Farallon where I tried my best to be adventurous but our nice waiter kindly insisted to replace my "one bite is all I could possibly eat" calamari. (It wasn't breaded and fried, which meant it wasn't going in my stomach.)
Saturday morning we went to breakfast at Sears Fine Foods, got ready for the day, and then shopped til we dropped.  We went back to the hotel and got ready for another tasty dinner at an Italian restaurant and then off to Grease.  It was a fun musical, even if Taylor Hicks was MIA.
Sunday we saw an early showing of Confessions of a Shopoholic, ate lunch at the restaurants inside Bloomingdales, then off to the airport.  
I am so lucky to have my sisters, we have so much fun together and I love being with them!
When you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear a flower in your hair.
Yes, Andra and I did buy matching outfits, but you will never see us in them together - I mean again.  There were a lot of repeat purchases this weekend, we all have at least one matching pair of new shoes, all three of us have the same hair accessories, and then throw in a few skirts and it is simply embarrassing!
We loved our charming hotel, the Kensington.
A big shout out goes to our dad who loves when "his girls" enjoy themselves!  And to Jason for taking great care of the girls with Chuck E Cheese, Monsters vs. Aliens, and Bass Pro Shop (I don't think they liked that one though) and a fabulously clean house when I got home complete with vacuuming and mopping.  Can't wait for next year! - who likes Paris in the Spring?
