Semi-guilty pleasures

I am eating cookie dough and blogging about it to get my strength up so I can attack the montrous mountain of dishes threatening to take over the rest of our apartment after they finish off the kitchen.

What are your guily pleasures or strength-building (aka procrastination) techniques?

Congratulations, Pedro! Hail the conquering hero! He has slain the law school dragon!

His son shouted his favorite cheer "Hoo-ray! Hoo-ray! Hoo-ray!" for his Papa and yelled "I LOVE MAMA!"  during Vice-President Walter Mondale's speech in the stadium full of silent grad-supporters at commencement.

We were happy that Pedro's parents could be here. Our dear friends who attended our Graduation Celebration BBQ were happy to eat the nearly 120 tortillas Alma made by hand.

Happy Mother's Day!

In nursury, at church, my son made a Mother's Day card with a crayon outline of his hand inside. Excitedly, he gave it to me with the most beautiful smile ever seen in creation. It doesn't get better than that. I love being his mom!

Thanks, Mom, for showing me how to love being a mom! You are amazing!

Thanks, Pedro, for making me feel so special today. The blackberry crepes for breakfast and the shrimp tacos with mango salsa for dinner were absolutely divine.
