More of the Usual

Somewhere along the line I forgot to introduce you to this little heart breaker. Meet Henry! His mommy is a friend of mine who I met on the second day of my very first job out of college, and she’s pretty much the sweetest person ever (plus she can make a killer meatloaf and sweet potato fries while nursing a baby, so basically she’s a superwoman). She’s also Japanese which explains where this little guy gets his exotic good looks 🙂 Henry and Connor might have to have a baby-off in the category of most squishable cheeks ever.

So now that we’ve got the baby talk out of the way, it’s time for my other most blogged about subject — weddings! As in we went to a wedding this past Saturday of one of Joey’s best friends, and I’ve decided that we’re officially old. We may or may not have broken our no drinking Whole30 rule. Ok, who am I kidding? We definitely broke it. Exhibit A:

This is in fact the only picture I have of the two of us from the wedding, and in a true reversal of roles Joey looks completely normal while I look…well…completely drunk. Awesome.

Back to the fact that we’re getting old. I swear it took me two days to fully recover from a weekend that included a rehearsal dinner on Friday, wedding on Saturday and birthday party for my Mom on Sunday. We’re so out of practice with these marathon type social engagements! Despite the achy bones and breaking out my walker, this weekend was pretty freakin’ awesome given I got to spend time with awesome family and friends. Can’t complain about that.

You know what else I can’t complain about? The dentist! After putting off going to the dentist for more years than I care to admit, I finally got my teeth cleaned a few weeks back and my one sad little cavity filled this evening. All those dental fears were for nothing! The hygienist that cleaned my teeth was so nice and straight-out-of-Jersey funny. She said she’d pronounce my last name like the Italians intended — Tro-EEE-Zeeeee. Love that. Then today when I went to get my cavity filled the dentist said it would hurt less than a flu shot, and he was totally right! I didn’t feel a darn thing, not even the needle to give me novocaine. Had it not been for the post-cavity-filled crooked smile, I would have sworn there was no needle involved.

You know that’s a good look.

So what’s going on with the usual in your life? Any cute babies or party hardy weekends? Do you see the dentist every 6 months? I’m totally starting.

  1. HAAH! I love the authentic, crooked smile pic!!! Your the only chick I know that still looks stunning post dental work!

    Glad you had a good wknd. You’re not alone in the “feeling old” category. I may have been hurting on Sunday myself. I’ll swap you my walker for your cane!

  2. Henry is precious, precious, precious. I can’t get over all the hair he has. Such a little love bug.

    As for you, my lovely daughter, the crooked smile was for a good cause……Pop Pop Dan would be happy to hear you went finally went for a dental checkup. Remember, every 6 months now.

    The Sunday Birthday party was a lot of fun. Thanks so much for everything. For some reason I think that everyone is dragging the end of this week. I was too tired to go out for my birthday dinner tonight. I didn’t even think I could bring the fork to my mouth. However, I did manage to chow down 3 cupcakes today 🙂

    • Yes, definitely making the dentist a habit now! Plus I found the best dentist ever, so I’m not scared anymore haha. Glad you had a great birthday week!!! Cupcakes sound so good right about now 🙂
