Dear Mister M,
We are so crazy happy that we can be hanging out with you on your special day! It is crazy that you are 2 years old already! You are an amazing little monkey…so smart…so funny…so sweet. We love you so much little boy! Thanks for bouncing away your birthday with us…and thanks for not showing Miss A how to climb up the big slide…that would have given her Mommy a heart attack!
May your life be full of bouncing, smiling, laughing, fun and partying! May you keep your Daddy on his toes & let your Mommy rest a little! And also…may you marry Miss A Although, as was pointed out to us today…she’ll have a lot of competition!
Happy Birthday Mister M. Thank you again for being such a good boy & thank your Mommy and Daddy for being amazing friends.
All our love,
the LK’s, A, T & M
February 17th 2008…I woke up so angry at boyfriend LK. We had spent the entire day before having a super romantic day of wine tasting, a magnificent dinner in the hamptons…dessert…and I woke up Sunday morning and was still a “girlfriend”. The thought in my head was something like…”what a douchbag…he thinks I’m going to wait around forever…I don’t give a crap what plans we had today…I’m staying in bed all day and I really don’t want to see him right now…” What I said was “I’m not getting up…go do your errands and I’ll see about getting ready”.
Then he started getting pushy…and forced me up and out to our scheduled museum visit.
UGH. So.freaking.annoying. So not in the mood for Optical Illusion and Pop Art. I wanna go home and snuggle with T. He loves me for sure…OMG he’s trying to talk to me…why won’t he get the idea that I don’t want to talk to him today…”read the signs right next to the art…they’ll explain everything”
There was no sign. There was no pop art…but there must have been an optical illusion…because MY painting was hung up in the gallery…mine. The one I painted for the boyfriend’s housewarming gift. Huh? How? Who? waitaesecond…..he said WHAT????? WILL I MARRY HIM????? (I really don’t even know if he said that…but I was shocked!) All I could say then was “Are you kidding me???”
And some bad bad pictures. I really was not photograph ready! I didn’t even shower! I didn’t want to get out of bed!!!! UGH who’s the idiot now Miss LK?!?!
We have no pictures of the painting hung in the museum since Mister LK was so nervous he forgot his camera was in his coat! But I don’t think that memory is going anywhere anytime soon! And now it is in this blog…
Best fight I’ve ever had!
The Mister I always dreamed of. The best partner in life. My better half.
Thank you for giving me everything I ever dreamed of. Even if I am mean to you sometimes
Happy Thursday from beautiful Winston-Salem, NC!
Does it look like we are excited to get there?!?!
The trip started out really nicely in the airport…we had a lovely and relaxing lunch in a sit down restaurant, courtesy of our super early arrival at the terminal. No grab & go meal for us! A requested “salad” for lunch & that is what she got! The perfect way to travel…in my opinion!
Then it got rocky…and it was much confusion until US Airways combined our flight and the one after it! We made it onto the plane & a very lovely woman was kind enough to give up her seat so that A could have her own seat. This was a tiny plane and I’m not sure that we could have made it, even the 90 minute flight, with her on my lap!
A had a really great flight, and was being her silly self the whole time! I think she knew that I needed a ETC photo because she asked “Mommy I want picture Ava” & so we took some! Here are some more!
and my favorite…
She’s been covering her whole face lately to emphasize her laughter and it is really the cutest thing!
Thank you to the G family for being awesome hosts! We’re having the most fun hanging out with you guys Looking forward to getting Daddy here tomorrow night!!
I’ve never really listened to too much (any) Bob Marley, but thanks to Pinterest, I recently read a quote of his that really spoke to me…
See, Mister LK doesn’t believe in the Hallmark holiday of Vday…and it is not the most important holiday to me either…but that said, it is really nice to know the guy in your life is thinking of you! I know I’m not perfect, and the Mister might not be either, but he is perfect to me.
Honey…don’t get the wrong idea…I still want the diamonds hehe But you are amazing and I can’t thank you enough for everything you do for me and our family. I have an amazing life and I owe it all to you. On Valentine’s Day & every other day of the year, I appreciate everything you are. Thank you so much for the unexpected explosion of flowers at our front door yesterday!
the box was like 4 feet long!
After a surprise like that, A & I were inspired to make pretty things for some special people! We were pretty limited in supplies, so these babies are limited editions, but we worked very hard on the ones we did make!
Happy Happy Valentine’s Day everyone…from the LK house to yours…we hope your day is filled with love, laughter, flowers, chocolates and anything else your hearts desire!
Signing off for a little while…we’re heading down to NC to visit the G Family & we can’t wait to see you all!!!
It’s Friday! Surprise! I didn’t manage to post daily! I did however make it before the end of the day to fulfill my once a week update!
Oh Central Park Zoo….while a fabulous place to meet up and walk around…you sure did disappoint in the ZOO department! We saw some seals, a sleeping polar bear, and the saddest penguins since the captive Happy Feet guys…
But we got to see Grampa on his birthday so we made the best of it and let the girls play in the open space by the seals pool!
Maybe next time we’ll make the meeting place the Children’s Museum for some more activities to entertain the kiddos!
Happy Happy birthday to the best Gamma in the whole wide world. I am the luckiest almost 2 year old to have such a great Gamma that always loves me, lets me boss her around, brings me all kinds of presents, takes me all over the place and a zillion more things you do for me! I love you Gamma!
Love, Miss A
We here at LKSquared wish our Mom/Gamma the happiest birthday today. We hope that all of your wishes come true today and everyday.
These girls have the best Grandma & her girls have the best Mom!
We all can’t wait to spend the day celebrating you! Hugs & Kisses Mom!
Love, the LKs!
Singular….1 day….1 snow….that is all we’ve got this year! So different from last year!!! I can’t believe how big A’s gotten since last year. I know she’s a year older, but when you look back at the photos, it is just incredible that she was crawling as her main mode of transportation, and she was so bundled up she could barely do that!!!
This snow was a nice one…even though I love when it snows…getting around with a toddler in snow like last year might be difficult. A was also much more helpful this year with snow removal!
She helped her Daddy clean up the whole patio!
Cleaning off our fire pit table
She thought the snow was funny!
Her eskimo ensemble was too cute not to get lots of pretty pics!
Thanks PD for lending us your snowsuit!!!
See ya soon snow!!!
Next year, we’ll meet the snow…on skiis!
Running out to meet you in the city today, so we’re going to keep this short!
Happy Birthday Gampa! I love you! I hope you have a great birthday! Can’t wait to see you at the zoo!
I’m sure I won’t be able to get to posting an actual photo a day, but I can take them & get them up here at least once a week! I’m going to try for daily, but I make no promises! Here are the guidelines:
Here goes! Feb 1 – 3…
