Much like the fabled Sasquatch or Lochness Monster, little evidence exists (at least on this blog) of my beloved Javier. Today he consented to having his picture posted on this blog. Isn't he cute? No wonder I talk about him so much, hey? Of course, he is in disguise. No one would ever guess the identity of the guy behind the sunglasses.
Sweet Lizzie is enjoying an equally sweet slurpee after a grueling, but fun softball practice, with Javier, co-coach of the team.
I am a very spoiled birthday girl. We spent the night in Calgary & woke up fairly early to go to the Calgary Farmers' Market. What an amazing place! I've been there so many times, but I just love to go & so up the atmosphere. So many colours & beautiful artisanel goods. I treated myself to 2 loaves of my favourite cranberry-pecan bread. Heavenly... We went to the mall to purchase Lizzie's spring/summer wardrobe & ran into some wonderful old friends for lunch. Completely unexpected, but it made my birthday even better.
These photos were taken with my NEW camera--a most handy Nikon Coolpix. It's cute & pink & perfect to tuck away in my purse for spontaneous photos shoots. Very similar to the one I put on my fantasy wish list. You know, the one that I posted as a joke? Unbelievable! Little Lizzie bought me a sweet little case to store it in, using her own saved-up allowance. What a kid.
I also received the most divine Le Creuset brasier in luscious lemongrass green (also on the fantasy list) from my in-laws, along with a Martha Stewart cookbook. I've already picked out several recipes which I'm excited to try in my new cookware!
Am I spoiled or what?
