peas in a pod.


first, the little kid slept in until TEN o'clock which never happens. he was in the sweetest mood all day too, even without a nap. needless to say, it was a happy mommy wednesday.

second, we got long-overdue family haircuts today at green pea salon. well, the grown-ups did [i've been trimming eli's myself.] so while erika cut my hair, jeremy and eli roamed to the bookstore & post office. during j's turn, eli and i browsed a nearby antique store where i saw many things but successfully held onto both my wallet and my squirmy boy eager to get down and touch expensive china with all the love inside him.

next, we three headed over to Crema, a newish coffee spot downtown. jeremy had been there a few times and raved about the mochas. i found myself back in italy upon the first sip. truly, it was the best mocha i have had in these united states and i'm not exaggerating an ounce. eli bounced between us, sampling fistfuls of my zucchini nut muffin and j's fluffy raisin scone. eli exudes the most happiness, we've noticed, when all three of us are together. he held each of our hands in his own tiny ones and walked along blissfully; we lifted him over puddles swinging him up into the air.

tonight i made an indian feast compliments of Whole Foods: chicken tikka masala, Tasty Bite jodhpur lentils (not so tasty...too much cumin), and wedges of whole grain naan brushed with olive oil.

and now, a little fun with photo booth to capture our new haircuts (in reverse) while they still have that fresh-from-the-barber-chair vavoom:

Oh my goodness, what a cute couple y'all are. I love your bangs!

Yes, your bangs are very cute. I have thought about bangs, and everytime a friend gets bangs it makes me want to get them, but I just chicken out every time. I think it's the growing-back-out process that scares me.

You ARE two peas in a pod, and the bangs are too dang cute.

Thanks for the info. It can be really hard getting help for addiction. I was looking for outpatient detox and found many useful resources on the web.
