Father’s Day

15 Jun

Happy Father’s Day to all of the daddies out there.

To my own father — you continue to be such an amazing, supportive Daddy. You taught me my own potential, and to be responsible for myself. You taught me to love, and what a man should be. I love you.

To my precious husband — I have no words. You are already, in our sadly non-traditional way, such a perfect father. I cannot wait to see how you develop.

To all of the other daddies out there, those with grown children, those awaiting births, and everyone in between — we all thank you.

I had a great weekend. It began with losing another 1.8 pounds and 2.5 inches. Then on Friday I got my hair done. Here is the before:

And the final result:

After my hair appointment, I spent several hours reading at Borders. Then I had a great dinner with my friend Tara, who I have adored since we met in high school. We had a great meal, and then we went back to her house and flipped through our old high school yearbooks. Let’s talk about scary things like THIS:
Sophmore Heather
That’s me as a sophmore in high school, so 15 years old.

Here’s me at 17, during my senior year:

Frightening, right?

Saturday I spent some time with Tara at Target, buying the Kate Nash CD. Did you all know she was brilliant? Are you holding out on me? She actually has a song called Di**head. As in, “stop being a di**head.” She is awesome.

Here’s a bit of my favorite lyrics:

You said that I must eat so many lemons ’cause I am so bitter. I said I’d rather be with your friends, mate, ’cause they are much fitter.

Awesome. Just awesome.

Today, Aaron and I had some great coffee and lunch at Baltimore Coffee & Tea.  Their coffee puts Starbucks to SHAME.

In the afternoon wewent shopping for some new clothes and shoes for him, and then saw the new Indiana Jones movie.  I have to say it was entertaining, but not amazing.  We then had dinner at my new obsession, Noodles & Company.  I LOVE this place.  We actually had dinner there last night too.  I highly recommend checking it out.  I got plain noodles with shrimp and grilled asparagus, and it was fantastic.

I hope everyone else had a great weekend.  Back to the grind…..
