tidbits from wan's house

a cool, drizzly, lazy weekend with no plans aside from dinner tonight with my brother and his girlfriend (the new katsuya at the equally new americana at brand) and a bbq tomorrow at one of the hub's co-worker's house. too bad this weather wasn't LAST weekend, but i'm grateful for it now.

slept in this morning, even the bean and the dog. although we did all fall asleep in the living room in front of the tv and just never got up to go to bed. heh.

yay for the lakers, although it wasn't even interesting to watch - they KILLED the spurs, winning by a solid 30 points. damn.

dinner by trader joe's last night. i got to stock up on all the stuff i'd mowed through during the week, plus stuff for dinners throughout the next week. yum.

made a batch of organic peaches for the bean. it's so much fun to make food for her and watch her wrinkle up her little face in confusion at the first bite, and then open up like a baby bird for more. love. it.

so, so, so many magazines to read. i've let them pile up over the last few weeks and i've got to get through them or i'll literally be buried alive.

and now i'm watching the bean play in the ol' jumperoo and listening to her babbling, as the hub snoozes on the couch. he's still got sleep to catch up on, having spent thursday night in vegas and not sleeping a wink all night. and the dog is completely ZONKED next to him.

ah, it's nice to relax on a weekend for once.


  1. I keep meaning to get to Americana. Can't wait to check it out!

    We are having a lazy weekend, too! Definitely a nice change!

  2. Yup, we're having a lazy weekend, too, before we head to Alaska on Monday.

  3. I need some more info on this Trader Joe dinner - at least if it's any good...

  4. When I was a nanny, I used to help the family's chef (yes, chef!) make the girl's baby food. One of the twins fell in love with these super yummy and super expensive white peaches. She would actually spit out any other kind of peach. They were yum, but an ice cube tray of that food cost $21!

  5. Love the lazy weekend thing. I'm all about it this weekend!

  6. yay for lazy weekends! i thank God for trader joe's quite often...not kidding. how else would we eat half the time?

  7. Lazy long weekends are the best. We don't get enough of them.

  8. we had big plans for a lazy weekend. um yeah, about that.... :/

    glad to hear you guys were able to get some relaxing in!

  9. Uh oh. I have not heard good things about Kats at Americana. Hope you have a better experience.


i heart comments. i wan-na hear what you have to say.
um, i think.

squeezing in all the sightseeing

this was our NYC home for a whole week: it was one of only a few hotels that i could find that offered two beds in a room rather than, say, ...
