Yea, she just throws some sugar on top to eat hers and loves it then. I never used to like the taste either, but somehow have come used to the taste. Try it and let me know if you like it or not!

She LOVED the store! She and her mother spent hours in there! Of course, she loves her American Girl doll (the doll's name is Olivia), and she's constantly changing her clothes, fixing her hair, making a bed for her, or teaching school to her.

We didn't eat in the bistro, but there were many who did. I was holding out for The Cheesecake Factory!

Hi everyone! Hope you're all having a great evening! Just got done eating dinner and cleaning up from that. Cleaned up a little from that too.

DH is downstairs with EA - she is playing in her jump house that my inlaws got her for Christmas. She loves it. Our basement is currently unfinished - we're going to start finishing it this winter or spring and all of her big toys (bike, motorized cars, jump house, etc. is downstairs.) I am not sure where we will put all of that once it is finished, but I guess we will find somewhere! It will obviously take a while to do!

Well, I hope you're all having a great evening. I soon have to go lay down and attempt to take a nap. Hope I can. Gotta work at 11p. Talk to you all tomorrow! Good night!

Aww...that's great. I am so glad she had a great time. I can't wait to take her there someday. She has the babydoll (it's called the Bity Babydoll) version right now of the American Girl doll and like I said, I think next year we are going to buy her an American Girl. I just think this year yet she was just too young for all the stuff that went with it.

I've never been to a Cheesecake Factory - they have one in Pittsburgh - next time I go I would love to try one. I've some of their cheesecake before and loved it!

omg 5 guys is fab! ya' know this past summer after my daughter (& i do mean immediately after) got her wisdom teeth SURGICALLY removed she wanted to go to 5 guys....still can't believe that. but those fries...oh man!





Yes, I did get your message, but I was unable to reply to it yesterday because I was busy - I apologize. I've missed you!

How was your Christmas?
our Christmas was really nice. thanks for asking.

it's been warmer here this year. on thurs. of last week while @ my sisters @ the s.c. shore it was 78 degrees & the next morning while walking on the beach we saw a lady in a white bikini. now it was warm but not that warm.
