Loving our little one, Charlotte <3

 

My baby just peed and pooed for the first time in her potty! 🙌 Sorry if it’s tmi, but I’m super excited.

My kid is cute ;P <3 <3 <3

Birthday planning

Okay, I just called the place we want to do Charlotte’s birthday party at. I think we’re pretty much set on that place (although the guy was ruuuuudee!) but we need to go in to finalize and reserve it. They wouldn’t take reservations over the phone ;/

Now onto the planning! I have less than a month and one of those weekends will be in San Francisco; hope I can get this done! Ras, you know what we’ll be doing for the next couple of weekends!

Ugh I hate being so last minute. Charlotte has a doctor appt on Thursday that took us nine months to get it…and I’m looking through the paperwork they sent us. I thought I just had to fill it out prior to the visit..why am I just now noticing that release form that I have to submit to my clinic so they can send the new clinic Charlotte’s info?! They said they want it at least a week in advance, hopefully I can send it in two days before 0.o

  1. I’ve never had kbbq in Sac so I wouldn’t know but I actually live in “Korea town” in Santa Clara which is about 50 min south of SF. I don’t know how far you’re willing to travel. If u want all you can eat, there’s palace BBQ buffet in Sunnyvale.
  2. I had a few friends who just recently went to Napa and they said everything is basically the same. But since you’re only here for a weekend, you’d probably save it for another trip since Napa is usually a whole day’s event.

Thanks for all your help! Korea Town sounds fun, but might be a tad too far :(

chewah thanks for the suggestions! We are planning on going to Fisherman&#8217;s Wharf and a few other touristy things (Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39). I really want to go to Napa too, but do you think it is okay after that huge earthquake? We&#8217;re only going for a weekend, so we have half a day Friday and whole days Saturday and Sunday.
Also, do you know of any really good Korean BBQ places? We don&#8217;t have that in MN (MN law or something), and that&#8217;s my husband only request, lol. We found one in Sacramento, and it looks good, but I&#8217;d love a local&#8217;s opinion! :)

Excited about our upcoming trip to San Fran to visit my baby sister :D :D It’s been a long time since we’ve been in California, and the first time that we visit her since she got married and move. What should we do?!

When did my 23 month old turn into a 2T wearing toddler? I swear, she was still in 12-18 clothing just yesterday :(

Wow, has it really been thirteen years since the 9/11 terrorist attack? Time flies by so so fast.

I remember I was in my senior year of high school. School had just recently started for the year, and I was in my first class, Trigonometry. Class ends at 9:10 (we were on a block schedule with just 4 classes a day), and it was about 9:07 or so when my teacher got the phone call. I remember seeing her face, her saying “Oh my gosh, oh my gosh” and hanging up the phone then announcing it to the class. The rest of the day was just sort of a blur. Classes were canceled, but we still had to stay at school. We could spend the day as a huge study hall, stay in the computer labs, cafeteria, library…I remember my best friend was freaking out about it. It was one of her worst fears. 

After school that day I had to work. I worked at BK (who didn’t work at a fast food restaurant as a teen?) as a crew leader and went into work. My manager for the night was Chris, and he was young and we were friends then. He was about 24 at the time. He gave me his car keys to go put gas in his car, so I went to the gas station and apparently everybody else had the same idea. There were lines of cars just waiting for gas. I remember wondering why the gas station was the first place everyone went to when they panicked. The restaurant was pretty dead that night and we just watched the news all night long.

It’s so crazy how much that has changed America and the way we all think. Nothing seems safe anymore. Everyone seems like an enemy.

We traveled to NYC in the summer of 2010 with our best friends. It’s such a beautiful city and I just LOVED it, but I cannot imagine the horror and catastrophe it went through during that time. May all the people that lost their lives rest in peace, and may their families find peace.

Where were you when it happened? When you first found out?
