Friday Five!

-I've been watching some movies on Netflix this week during Elise's naps and I found one yesterday that I really enjoyed, so I thought I'd share it with you.  The movie is called The Giant Mechanical Man. IMDb describes it as, "An offbeat romantic comedy about a silver-painted street performer and the soft spoken zoo worker who falls for him." I thought it was cute, so if you have some time to kill, give it a shot.

-Our friend and landlord extraordinaire, Fred, took us and some of his other tenants out to dinner this Wednesday.  He put me in charge of choosing the restaurant and I picked Red Robin.  I love their strawberry lemonade and bottomless fries.  I came equipped with several distractions for Elise but it did me no good  She just wanted to ride the carousel horse that was in the restaurant for decoration and also up WAY to high to ever reach.  It was nice to have a night off cooking but we sure paid for it with constantly battling our girl to stay in her seat. 

-We had our friend Abby over for dinner on Monday night and we made an Asian meal.  I made Mapo Doufu and she made some delicious pork buns.  We continued the Asian-ness by watching the movie Ip Man after dinner since Abby had never seen it before.  It's a good movie if you are into Kung Fu.  Abby was even kind enough to bring another elephant for Elise's collection and she has barely let it out of her sight all week.  Thanks Abby!

-The weather in Milwaukee seems to be confused.  It still thinks it is January.  Outside right now it is 18 degrees but it says it feels like 9, pretty great huh? It goes without saying that I'm SO over this. What I wouldn't do for a nice 43 degrees at this point. I don't think that's asking too much.  Come on Spring, please get here!

-Elise continues to be adorable in every way.  She talks and talks and learns so many new words and phrases all the time.  She is constantly keeping us laughing.  The other day we beat Zack to the car and I was putting her in her car seat.  Elise yells out, "Bye Dad, I love you!" and I told her that Daddy was coming.  When she heard that she smiled and said, "Sleep, sleep".  It is her new favorite game to pretend to be sleeping and wake people up. It is always her idea and, of course, always hilarious.  We sure love her.

Come on spring... Make your way to Wisconsin already! We've been having such lovely weather, but then today it snowed. Gotta love spring in Utah!

Thank you for the Netflix Movie suggestion! I am in serious need of some new things to watch. I'll definitely check it out.

Also, yay for dinner at Red Robin. Boo for having to battle Elise. Hope it was delicious regardless.
