Exciting Weekend!

We had a great weekend. My friend Lindsey was in town (she lives in the Bay Area), and she invited the three of us to her friend's birthday party on Saturday night in Playa Vista. We went to the party (even though it was long past Paprika's bedtime) and had a wonderful time. Paprika really enjoyed showing Lindsey how well she can sit up! It was great talking to Lindsey and catching up on everything that's going on in her life.

We also went up to Malibu- it seems like we make it up there just about every weekend these days. It is so beautiful up in the mountains- it really feels like a world away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. We found the cutest sandwich place and had lunch there and happened upon a great playground for kids. It was celeb-packed. We saw Kate Hudson, Kate Capshaw (Steven Spielberg's wife) and Josh Duhamel all in the span of five minutes. It was insane! We also did some window shopping. We went into a kid's boutique where they were selling simple sundresses for over $200. Yikes! I really want to get a sewing machine and start making my own stuff. I know I could make clothes way cuter than the ones they were selling.

On Sunday, we went to church. It was so good- all about changing the focus of your life, filtering out what matters least, and getting in touch with what matters the most. What else? Paprika got her second tooth this weekend! If you look really closely in the pictures, you can see them- they are her two bottom teeth. She made up for all of the hard work of cutting a tooth by sleeping for about 15 hours last night (with one brief wake-up to feed in the middle). She was such a sleepy girl, and today she is well rested and ready to play.

We also watched "Shut Up And Sing"- the Dixie Chicks documentary. It was very good- I highly recommend it, especially if you're a Dixie Chicks fan like I am! :-)
