What's Up At Casa De Booms?

Yesterday, I was greeted as I walked in the door by the smell of pork chops and by the site of a lavender envelope sitting on my dining room table next to those pork chops. Jason said, "you got a card in the mail."

Anxiously, I tore it open and inside was a card that reflected my love of beer and had a very sweet message inside from my friend J. I've been told to expect something else too. Turning 31 might not be so bad when you have friends like this.

Last night, as I laid in bed holding my belly because constipation is my friend (TMI, I know, but seriously) Marley sweetly came in and asked if I would drive her to school for her first day. Never being opposed to going into work an hour late and feeling the pull of my motherly duties, I said sure. Or maybe I said something about talking about it in the morning. Whatever the case, that is what happened. Although what should have been a relaxing morning of having extra time, was more like a trial of my already thin patience. I had a blonde monkey hanging on my leg the entire time as I styled the girl monkey's hair.

Somehow this makes it all worth it though:



And I only wish I could pull off being this darn cute:

Princess and MonkeyGirl need to get together sometime. I bet Princess would looooove her! They seem to be a lot alike.

I'm glad you liked your card! Watch for the UPS man tonight.

I love her outfit!
