:: Best Birthday Date Night Ever. My amazing husband took me out Saturday for the best birthday date that a girl could ask for. Amazing steak, bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with gouda, too many glasses of delicious Malbec and conversation that made me feel like the most loved woman in the world. It was awesome. It is not very often that we can sneak away for a night of full luxury, but it is that fact that just makes it all the more special. Thank you, David. You are one of the great ones.
:: The Killing on AMC. We recently watched the first season on Netflix Instant Queue. The second season is currently showing. If you are not already watching this show, you should be. This moody, Seattle-based crime thriller centers around the murder of Rosie Larsen, a high school student who is seen briefly at the beginning of the episode as she attempts to flee from an unknown assailant. As with many of AMC's top shows, the writing is fantastic and the characters have depth. Outside of that I can't explain what makes this show so great. It just is.
:: Every night just before bed, Little B asks for The Music. This translates into a loud singing session where David, Little B and myself are soulfully bellowing out Adele songs that are playing in the background on Pandora or YouTube. Little B loves it. We are each handed a crayon to serve as our microphone. And let me tell you, Sister can wail. She knows to close her eyes tight on the important notes in order to emphasize Adele's passionate words. It is quite hysterical to watch. But I love that it has by accident become a nightly family tradition.
