Britten and Rich plans to come over this evening to grill and enjoy the perfect weather on my deck. What we didn't plan was what we were going to eat in advance. We decided we would just each get some things and see what happened. Food roulette! Well, you can probably guess what happened… We had a TON of food!
It was one of those nights that always makes me question why I don't do this a lot more often. So maybe this year I will!

My holiday shopping took me to Walgreens, who had these awesome pink and white bunny ears. Literally seconds of fun!!!
Okay, this one isn't a bunny… It's an Anubis. But come on--look at those ears! All he needs is a cute pink basket full of eggs hanging from that scepter! I took M'kiylah to see the King Tut exhibit at Union Station this afternoon.http://instagram.com/p/m-dp0VF9Jw/
Joni and I even made fools of her three dogs:
We bribed them with Easter treats… Yet another bunny.

My bunny – err, kitty – greets the sunrise. (And all the little happy, noisy birds who have come to enjoy some breakfast.)
Of all the amaryllis I've owned, I don't think I've ever had one flower a second time. But today the one that I got in 2012 decided to open up!
These are the cute Easter treats I picked up for my one year-old neighbor, August. Target had the greatest little sippy cups! And I drew matching characters to complete the gift.

There are two other videos of this scene in my Instagram account as well… Aki and Taylor popped into try to help, but Kismet was not having it!
Later Taylor and Kismet sparred a little more: http://instagram.com/p/m3_Efql9FO/

Somehow I just realized that Warrior Dash is the day before Trolley Run. And I signed up for both. This is going to be interesting… At least, that's one word for it. Painful might be another ;)
Warrior dash is a 5K plus a bunch of obstacles and a whole lot of mud. Trolley run is an easy 5k course. I think I should be okay. Or I would have been, had I kept up my training. Somehow all the travel and snowboarding and long boarding and diving have kind of messed that up. I can't wait to draw the aftermath of that weekend. I may be in traction.

I survived another two hour lesson with Brett… Success!!!
My ankle, shin, and hip feel slightly less successful, as they suffered minor road rash in the three crashes that I endured (curse you rocks, sticks, and huge cracks in the pavement! Flipping me off my board is bad karma!). You can see some dirt and scrapes on my wrist guards and knee pads. Talk about money well-spent!
Today my legs were quite tired after the 10+ miles that I ran Wednesday/Thursday, so next time with fresher legs should deliver even better results. One would hope. One would also hope that this will keep my muscles in shape for snowboarding season, so I can pick right up where I left off in Winter Park, no matter where I head next. If I'm lucky, Japan might be next.

Charlie's birthday is on Sunday, and he's tall and goofy like an abominable snowman, so a bunch of us are bringing yeti themed cards and treats for him tomorrow. So of course I had to do reprise of my yeti brownies. Yeti are fun to drive no matter the medium. So I did a couple more.
