ups and downs…

this weekend had a lot of  ups and downs.


UP… free tickets to a UH football game. (i haven’t been in about 5 years)

DOWN…  they lost.

UP…   mcdonald’s hot fudge sundae to end the night :)



UP…   found a new breakfast place {sweet e’s cafe} on a blog. it looked totally cute, and there was no wait for a table.

SUPER BIG DOWN…   service was terrible.  we waited about 45 minutes for our food. and the last 1o of those minutes, we watched our food sit on the counter as it got cold. we watched the one waiter walk past our food about 5 times as he gave people menus, delivered bills, and filled water. watched as he walked past our food AND look in our direction but still no food. thank god nolan’s food and my side of fried rice was delicious or else my already hungry and irate husband (woah…weird) would’ve hit the roof.  my stuffed banana french toast was “eh”, and my iced coffee was more iced cream with a splash of coffee….overall a very disappointing experience.

iced cream with a splash of coffee...

our food. finally.

UP…   got to see chase dressed up in a kimono :)  it’s some children blessing thing at a japanese temple. totally don’t know what it’s about, except they get dressed up and blessed.

someone was tired of smiling...

UP…  ollie got to spend some time with his cousin…although i’m not sure if ollie thinks that’s a good thing. he seems a little apprehensive around bula and his excessive butt-sniffing ;p

"mommy, why are we at a temple?"

DOWN…   APEC week begins tomorrow. let’s hope it’s not chaos!
