Grayson's Milk

Grayson's favorite treat is Whiskas catmilk. He gets really excited when you even mention "milk". He can be quite demanding if he thinks that he should be getting it.

Lunch Date

Today, Matt and I had lunch at Carolina Cafe in Cameron Village with our friends, Stephanie and Audrey. Audrey is Stephanie's absolutely precious 15 month old daughter. It is amazing to watch her, she is so smart...and very funny. (She fell recently and has a little black eye, but she is a trooper!) Stephanie helped me out at work last week by being my translator while I could not talk, Thanks Steph!

*In a squeaky scratchy voice*
So, I have laryngitis. I think that I may have gotten it from post nasal drip from being so cold in Chicago. Or I could just be sick. Either way it sucks to work and not be able to talk. I had to write questions on little sticky notes. Hopefully I will be better soon.

Here is a picture of Grayson jumping down from the top of the cabinet.

PSA: Tea Maker

How not to use the pitcher of a tea maker:
  • Do not pour boiling water into your plastic tea pitcher.
  • Try not to touch said pitcher with hot pot if you use it with boiling water
  • After realizing that you have slightly melted your pitcher, do not try and force lid of pitcher.
