Countdown to Dorothy's birthday!!

I shouldn't be surprised-- I mean, she EATS EGG ROLLS-- but it is hard to believe that Dorothy is going to be 1 in a week.  ONE.  Already.  My tiny baby.

She's a for-real toddler.  I turned around for 2 seconds to get some remote controls out of the bath tub in my bathroom, and before I knew it, she was elbow deep in the toilet (and in case there is any doubt, she's the remote-in-the-tub stasher).

Randomly, this was in the lobby of the grocery store today.
Dorothy + Chipotle = Awesome

 And Orange Leaf, of course.  Chemicals be damned, Dorothy had some of Ben's. (I abstained in favor of my millionth batch of cookies at home)

Lots of party prep this week-- I think I am making 5 desserts.  My plan for the cake is organic cupcakes (roll your eyes, but she's a baby and has really only eaten the healthiest stuff, processed cheese crackers and egg rolls notwithstanding) with butter cream frosting dyed with strawberry, raspberry, and blueberry puree.  But I may do whipped cream.  Decisions!

Ben is celebrating the big 3-5 with SPRING BREAK woo-hoo!  And of course a sweet little tea party this weekend.  He's a lucky man.


  1. I can't wait to see pics of her party! And coloring the frosting with fruit is brilliant!

  2. Oh man am I looking forward to people food! Ryan is thirty five. He doesn't like to talk about it.

  3. I'm really excited about her tea party because I heart tea parties! My girls love to throw them. Evan doesn't know it yet, but I am *this* close to starting a modge podge china collection just for elaborate tea parties.
