Family Quality Time

Brett and Andrea flew in last wknd and it was so great for Scott and I to spend time with them.
We started off friday night at the Dublin Pub - dinner, drinks and live music.

Saturday morning I had to get up early to make my 8:00 am Statistics class (ugh). After class we chowed down on cucumber tuna special sushi rolls and then headed home to watch my Eagles lose to the Cowboys... Good thing we were having fun at the Dublin Down, where Scott tends bar when the game ended :)

Sunday we slept in and then Scott came over for brunch - pancakes, eggs and real BACON!! We then proceeded to play Banana grams for several hours. This fabulous, addicting game was a christmas gift from Jenny and Anth (thanks guys!) We can now add 3 more people to Banana gram fan club :)
Andrea headed out early Monday morning for her interviews at the hospital in Vancouver. So, Brett and I met up with Scott for lunch at Pho Van and then...more Banana grams. Brett flew out that afternoon, so he could get back for his classes. Andrea and I had a girl's night chilling out in front of the TV. It was nice to relax after a busy wknd and for her a long day of interviews, which she rocked :) Sure would be great if she ended up completing her residency here.


What a cute glad Jenny recommended I watch it.

Eagles will prevail

The Eagles lost to the Cowboys on Sunday 24-0. It has taken me a few days to recover to the point that I could even write out that information. Horrible, horrible game. Worst part was that the Eagles were in first place and that game decided who won the NFC East. Why did it have to be Dallas...the Eagles most hated opponent.

Fast forward to this Saturday...the Eagles play the Cowboys again. This one is the real deal - lose the game and you are out of the playoffs. History has proven that the Eagles recover well and should destroy the Cowboys. This Eagle's fan is a believer. McNabb you can do it!!!

Happy New Year 2010!!

Happy New Year!! So far it has been the perfect morning...have the day off from work, so I slept in, followed by a long hot shower and then breakfast and coffee snuggled up in a blanket with Murphy on my sofa. I intend to take full advantage of my 3 days off and get a bunch of projects done from my to-do list. But for now...I'm going to sip my coffee and enjoy my first morning of 2010.

Christmas 2009

I had a wonderful Christmas in Vegas with my brother Anthony, best friend and sister in law Jenny and my three nephews - Cord, Gus and Homer. We got to spend the week together, including Christmas day. Jenny and I did a whole lot of wrapping, while Anthony was working. We all saw a couple of movies - Avatar and Sherlock Holmes - loved both of them. Lots of yummy restaurants that I tried for the first time. Jenny and I played bingo one night - neither of us won the big money though (bummer!). Anthony and I played Wheel of Fortune $1 machines and both doubled our money. The best thing is that I actually went home from Vegas without losing a bunch of money :)

Jenny's sister Erin and her two girls came over for Christmas eve. We had a mass feast - honeybaked ham, meatballs, sushi, mashed potatoes, stuffing...and lots of desserts. Then we had a Trivial Pursuit family play off Morgans (Jenny and Erin) vs Esplins (Anth and I). Sadly Anth and I got our butts kicked by the Morgan girls :)
Christmas day started with all of us opening our stockings, which was an experience because Santa Jenny wraps everything in the stocking so there was lots to unwrap. We each took turn opening gifts under the tree and then we had Jenny and Anthony's tradition of egg muffin sandwiches for breakfast which were SOO good!! We played Rock Band - each of us taking turns on guitar, drums and vocals - too much fun. Later that evening we all went to see the movie Sherlock Holmes, staring my boyfriend Robert Downey Jr.

Every night we played my new favorite game - Banana Grams and stayed up way to late trying to spend as much time together as possible. It was such a good visit. I really enjoyed myself and appreciate Jenny and Anthony hosting me for a week :) Just wish I lived closer so I could hug on my nephews all the time.

October - such a good month

I Love this time of year. Cooler weather, the leaves are changing colors and....I have both the NFL and Blazer games. Total bliss:)

My friends Renee and Stephanie went with me to one of the Blazer preseason games. We sat 2nd row from the court...great seats! Thanks Scott!

Blazer Games

It has been an absolute blast going to the Portland Trailblazer basketball games with my brother Scott. He works for the Blazers but also has season tickets. As his lucky sister, he invites me to games all the time. Such a great brother...:)
