Vegas Trip

Filed under: Ali,Amy,Travel — JeniQ @ 9:43 pm

I recently had to go to Las Vegas for a work trip. My best girlfriends met up with me and we got to hang out when I wasn’t working. It was so totally awesome!

We stayed at the Cosmopolitan, which is amazingly luxurious. We spent our free time at the pool and wandering the various bars in the hotel. The girls were good humans and took a nice, long walk each morning, stopping to get us affordable food from somewhere outside of the hotel. I didn’t. I laid in bed as much as possible.

I am actually happy to say I didn’t leave the hotel until my conference was over. Our flight was at 6 AM the next morning, so we planned a 4 AM departure. Going to sleep seemed silly, so we walked the strip, gambled away some money, and ate a wonderful meal at midnight. It was the best. I love you, ladies.

Destin Trip

Filed under: Ali,Amy,Travel,Vacation — JeniQ @ 1:30 pm

I had a great weekend with Amy and Ali in Destin. It was a funny trip. I flew to Atlanta, then Amy and I drove to Birmingham. The next morning the three of us drove down to Destin. On Sunday, we all drove back to Birmingham, then Amy and I drove back to Atlanta, and I flew home. Still, we had nearly two full days out in Destin.

We didn’t stay in Niceville very long.

Baby Gifts

Filed under: Alba,Ali,Babies,Cristin,Gifties — JeniQ @ 5:12 pm

We’ve started getting baby gifts!

This is the first gift we got for the baby, from a co-worker. She took great pains to say the name several times – it sounds funny!!
It’s a lovely, soft blanket in bright colors from IKEA. Yay!

Then Cristin gave me Toby socks!!!!! What can I even say? LOVES!!!!!!!

And my friend Alba sent me this adorable fleece poncho from Colombia, along with some soft fuzzy socks for me and coffee for Dave. She thought of the whole family, I’m impressed!


And last, but totally not least, is this ADORABLE sock-cat from Ali. 1) Whoever thought to make a sock-monkey in cat form was SMRT. 2) I think someone’s going to have to start giving me synonyms for “adorable” at some point in the near future.

Thank you all!!!!

Painting the Nursery

Filed under: Ali,Amy,Babies,Decorating — JeniQ @ 10:40 am

Our crew chief:
Ali Arty

With much patience on the part of Amy and Ali, we figured out an approach to decorating the nursery. Dave and I had already picked out the Magic Garden crib set from Litto Kids, so all the colors the girls and I choose are designed around it.

For the walls we went with a pale yellow with brown undertones that is kin to the yellow in the print. It looked like cake batter and we all had to remind ourselves it wasn’t so that we wouldn’t lick our fingers.

I was so thankful they were here to help, and we got the first coat on the walls Saturday night!

Gifts and Dangle

Filed under: Ali,Amy,Friends — JeniQ @ 10:27 am

We saw a guy dressed in a shiny plastic Lt. Dangle costume on our way home from breakfast on Saturday. His pants kept falling down.


Then I gave the ladies some gifties and they loved them!

Amy got some candy cuffs – you have to eat your way out. 🙂

Ali got a t-shirt with a very subtle message: “Nobody knows I’m a Esbian.” Heh, the shirt’s just folded up. She really seemed to like it, though, so hooray!
