Chas and lacey! I'm jealous. The last time I saw Chas was when I spent the night at his parent's house and saw les mis circa Dec. '05. (I was visiting family in Purcellville.) The last time I talked to him on the phone was Fall '06. (I got choked up, because I missed Hawaii and I think I creeped him out)

you look so pretty.

Thanks, Ali. The other 1/2 you can't seen in the photos where the bathroom, closets, "bedroom" are. The space is separated really well and then we have the bookshelf to divide it too. We need to have you guys over sometime!

Stephanie -- yeah, I don't have that "glow" that you all share, but thanks :) And I know, she is so cute! I got your card today and you look amazing as well.

NG, we'll just miss you -- we're headed to AZ on Sat. for a week! Let us know the next time you head to DC. Neil's cousin Julie visited us from NYC yesterday, which got very confusing when he told me Julie was coming down from NYC. We miss you!

Rachel S.? Did I miss the change to Eastin? Yeah, Chas is Neil's cousin. You reminded me of when I first met you and you said you had fam in Purcellville which totally blew me away since that is my hometown!! And I think we'll all been there with the acute Hawaii-sickness (like homesickness?).

Thanks, Tara! Speaking of pretty, I need to cruise over to your blog to see more Belle!

That's so sweet how you personally respond to all of the comments! I like how these pictures turned out, even if the one of me isn't the most flattering. Getting a flattering photo of me at this point is asking a little too much. Thanks again for inviting us over! I wish I could cook better, I shall keep trying.

Love the title of your post. You are so very clever. I love that I found your blog (mom pointed me to it) and I can peek in every now and then and keep tabs on how you are doing!

modestmuse said...

Any time, Brooke! We'll make sure to have a highchair next time :) And like I said, you're a great cook! No one else has ever made homemade pizza dough for me!

Likewise, Shauna. I was just talking about you the other day -- I VT Yvette Yamagata!
