April 2010:  17 months old


Last week we took Bailey to Benihanna's because a dear friend of mine, Downen, was celebrating her birthday and requested us to be there.  It's not like she had to twist my arm or anything I love both Benihanna's and my friend a whole lot!  Originally we tried to find a sitter however our anniversary was the following day so we opted to just take Bailey along because she is pretty behaved at restaurants as long as I bring tons of snacks and toys to keep her happy in the high chair.  Turns out she LOVES Benihannas too.  Well, she never really tried the food, but she totally loved the hibachi performance.  She clapped and giggle for the man in the funny hat, and the more she cheered him on the more he hammed up his performance for her.  Seriously this little girl was cracking up so loud that it had our whole table in stitches.  So even though we had her out way past her bed time, shhhh don't tell, I am still happy that we didn't leave her with a sitter for the night since she enjoyed herself so much.  

And as I stated previously the following night John and I celebrated two years of marriage which we left Bailey at home for.  We went to the Studio Movie Grill, for you Austinites it is much like the Alamo Drafthouse, both of those places have been our favorite date night spot because we both love movies, food and drinks.  We had planned on seeing Date Night with Tina Fey and Steve Carrell however it was opening weekend and was sold out upon arrival.  The only other option was How to Train Your Dragon in 3D.  I was totally excited to see this movie, but every time we have gone to see a movie since Bailey was born it always seems to be a G rated movie by default.  Lol oh well, date night isn't what it used to be!  This was my first movie to view in 3D which made it extra special.  And we both thought the movie rocked so even though it wasn't the first choice it still made for a good plan b and a nice night out.  

Currently I am working on a mudding truck cake for a 16 yr old's birthday and a display wedding cake to be featured in Wedding Paper Diva's blog.  Both are awesome.  My hairdresser contacted me asking to make a trade hair and highlights for her 16 year old's birthday cake... I get my hair done and I get to make a totally awesome cake??  Deal!  We have a rock crawling Jeep Cake coming up in 3 weeks so this will give me a little practice for that next cake too, even better.  I'll let ya know how this little guy comes out, it's my first vehicle cake to try so I am hoping that it rocks.  My fear is that it will come out cartoonish and be totally lame for a 16 year old so I will do my best to prevent that from happening.  The good thing is that I get to cover a lot of it in "mud" aka chocolate so for it being my first vehicle cake I have a lot of give on it.  The cake for the Wedding Paper Diva's blog I am really falling in love with.  I have one other element left to complete on it and then it will be ready to photograph.  This one I love because I got to pick out one of their invites that I took a liking to and come up with a cake that matched it but has my own twist on it... so it's more inspired by their design but it truly unique.   

And coming up John is on vacation starting tomorrow!!  I have made plans with my Dad to head down to Austin on Wednesday.  The plans are still a little fuzzy as to what is happening.  A.  we will be staying at the cabin on Lake Buchanon or B.  in Earl's rv by Lake Travis.  YAY!  Can't wait!  John has an interview Friday for a new District Accounting position that has opened up in our area for Best Buy so he might have to leave us Thursday night and then come back Friday... doh inconvenient time for an interview, but it'll be totally worth it if he gets that promo!  So keep him in your prayers!  Bailey also has her K9 teeth trying to cut so she is a little moody at times.  Man ever since she turned a year she has had a new tooth or teeth trying to break through every month.  I think she will have a full set in no time!   The end!
