palm springs. again.

i had the privilege of escaping to palm springs this weekend with my good friend and old college roommate, sara marashian, who had some venue research to do for her upcoming wedding. rian made it easy for me to go, sending me off in his prius and telling me all the fun things he'd be doing with the kids (thank you, babe!). sara had an awesome hotel booked for us. a place recently remodeled but was roaring in the 40's with an underground speakeasy and brothel! pretty much except for one outing to look at a venue and stuff our faces with burgers, fries and milk shakes at ruby's, we remained poolside the whole time. it was so nice to be lazy, be served, and lay out. we sunk into the huge bed and watched sex & the city 2 and then had a 10pm dinner at the poolside restaurant, where we also ate our huge breakfasts both mornings. we talked wedding plans, read magazines, napped, reminisced, talked about how cool sean & rian are, ordered more food poolside & watched people. and the pool was open 24 hours, all night long. we didn't go, i just think that's cool.


laying out. i really should have taken more pics.

it's out

so the word is out that somewhere around april 25, 2011 we will have another one of these:

(wallace, 4 hours old. skyler 3 days old)

which means soon, i will look like this again:

(dropping wallace off after a big "last night out" for a few days while we brought skyler into the world and adjusted in at home)

in other news, skyler slept in til 8:15 this morning and i was served breakfast in bed. warm pancakes... amazing. while i was in bed rian and wallace had a conversation about rian's wedding ring tattoo. rian was telling him what it means and how much he loves mamma. wallace said he wants a tattoo also. he was told he can have the wash-off kind now and when he's much older he can decide to get a real one. wallace said, "i want a sheep tattoo". rian told him, "and that is why you will only be getting the wash-off kind".
