Pork buns, son!

Noah makes a crazy good Chinese pork shoulder. It takes like 12-18 hours to cook, but it’s worth it. I would describe it as the best pulled pork ever, with Chinese 5 spice. Last night we made homemade pork buns with the leftovers. Yummy.

Vacation Recap

We had such a nice visit with my parents in Las Vegas. And so much yummy food! We ate and ate and ate and ate some more. My friend Mike, who moved back to Vegas last year, showed us around downtown. It’s transformed dramatically, due in part to Tony Hsieh (of Zappos) efforts to revitalize the area. I really liked the changes and could even envision myself living there again! Well, not really, I’m pretty happy on the East Coast. But I had a lot of fun in Las Vegas, the highlights for me were pigging out at Makino’s; bar crawling at Champagnes, the Peppermill, and Frankies Tiki Room; hiking at Red Rock Canyon; and just sitting in my parent’s backyard soaking in the sun. We also drove to LA for a few days and took the boys to Disney’s California Adventure. But the best part of LA for me was eating at Din Tai Fung in Glendale. OMG, so good.

Vacation Take 2!

So our flight was cancelled due to the snow. Wah! But we’ve rescheduled and will hopefully be basking in the sun very soon. Took a picture this morning of my husband digging out our driveway from the latest storm, looking like a true Mainer outside in the winter wearing short sleeves.

Goodbye Snowy Weather

This pic does not convey how treacherous the roads were yesterday in Portland. Thankfully my hubby picked me up from work, because I cannot drive in that mess! I grew up in Vegas, I have no snow driving skills, but I am getting a little better since I’ve lived in Maine for a while now. Anyway, we’ll be going out to sunny Las Vegas and LA soon to visit family and friends. Can’t wait!

Winter Wonderland

Oh yes, it’s winter in Maine. Yesterday we played in the snow in the back field of Noah’s dad’s property. There were snowball fights and and an attempt to put together this beautiful mushroom jigsaw puzzle. As 2013 draws to a close, I’m ever so grateful for my hubby and boys that I’m just crazy over, and to have a job that I absolutely love. Life is good.
