A special day...

Today I

-stayed in pajamas until 1:00pm

-spent an hour trying to cram my three carseats into my friend's smallish s.u.v. (without displacing her three carseats)

(don't know those people, b.t.w. Our scene was twice as impressive, and without the weird man)

-successfully hauled all six of our kids to a park (with a cool fountain) where they spent hours getting wet and dirty and tired

-put the kids to bed at 7:00

-dog-eared over half of the recipes in a gourmet cookbook Mish brought me

-devoured a Kyle-made burger (including yummy seasonings, pineapple, tomato, avocado, & bbq sauce)

-whined until he made me another half-burger before I would listen to his sales pitch he's practicing for his new job

-inhaled two slices of sugar-glazed baked chili bacon on or around 9:09pm (and it would've been more if more were available)

-watched the safety training episode of The Office on my laptop with Kyle and Mish

-"finished off" the Breyers rocky road ice cream (I mean, there was only 2/3 of the container left, and you know how annoying that is when someone leaves the carton almost empty in the freezer)

-felt good and healthy after a tall glass of ice water-- drinking water compensates for the rest of my indulgences, right?

- swaddled and re-swaddled Charlie until he fell asleep

-checked Creative Parties and Showers blog to make sure nothing better than what I've picked for Ellie's party theme has surfaced-- we're still safe

I tried to make this day memorable, but I guess it was a little bit of what all my days are like. What did you do to celebrate 09/09/09?

You have me beat. I was tempted to go down to the strip where tons of people were getting married, but I passed. It's harder to crash non-mormon weddings.

Your food intake yesterday was impressive.

I was waiting for the big reveal that you're preggers again... ;-)

If I could eat like you and still look as great as you... I WOULD! ;-)

good heavens, please don't wish another pregnancy on me just yet. =)
