For the first time in a LONG time we went on a double date. We've known Nicole and Jeff for a while (she was around when we met at volleyball/TGIFriday's) and we just happen to live minutes from each other now. It also happens that we are all four huge foodies...we love to eat good food.
We headed to the Salted Pig in Riverside for some deep fried, battered bacon wrapped dates and the best brisket sandwich I've ever had. Oh, and a fresh ginger ale made with real ginger! Yum. Then we walked off our food comas over to the Mission Inn for some cupcakes.
We're already planning our next outing!

We planned this sleepover like two months ago. David lovingly agreed to take over Jude duty for about 24 hours so I could head down to San Diego to have some girls time. It was so fun! We ate so much yummy food and explored and shopped and laughed. We stayed up late crafting and watching movies, and drank way too much caffeine. I have to say that I don't have a ton of girl friends that I talk to often, mostly because girls are flaky, emotional and dramatic (this includes me). Cori is not one of those girls. She is honestly one of the best friends I've ever had, and she is a good friend to everyone she knows. She never flakes on anyone and drives long lengths to go to parties or visit loved ones. I'm so glad she's my friend. And yes, I did miss Jude.

14 months! Oh man, each month disappears. Jude is almost running everywhere he goes now. He's gotten some good bumps on his head from losing his balance. I took him to the doctor a couple weeks ago because I thought he had an ear infection. Turns out he was just rubbing his ears because teeth were coming in. He now has 12! All four top and bottom and 4 molars. He is so much fun and cracks us up all day long. He's started doing this 'go crazy' thing where he shakes his head around and makes funny sounds. He dances and mouths the words like he's lip syncing and its hilarious. He is obsessed with wooden spoons and brushes. He tries to hold as many as he can at once and gets mad if he can't pick them all up. Even though he's busy, he will still cuddle and relax with you before or after naps.
He loves sippy cups and his pacifier. He loves putting shoes and socks on. He loves baths. He really loves peanut butter crackers and if he sees the box he will beg and sign please forever. He climbs on the couch all day long, can open some doors now and tries to get outside EVERY chance he gets.
One of my favorite things is finding random items in weird places and realizing that Jude threw them in when no one was looking. The other day I couldn't find my phone and it ended up being in his toy box. I looked in the laundry basket last week and in it was a dog toy, a plastic wrench and my hair brush. It makes me smile every time.
We gave him a little haircut since it was getting a little long in the back. It's not the best cut ever, but it will do for now.

Jude got to take it easy since we wheeled him around
my parent's neighborhood for trick or treating.
He now loves any kind of lollipop.
