Mommy & Me Day (Pictures) & I've Been Tagged!

so last week, baby and i went out to enjoy the fabulous weather. first, we went to have breakfast at one of my favorite places in the whole world-mmmmmm! it was great, except for the little girl who was seated with her family next to our table. she was overly-friendly with my baby. at first it was cute...she kept saying hello. then it went from there, to hugging & trying to touch her hair. i ushered my baby away, but the little girl stood breathing on my leg, stalking us. then she tried to buckle my kid into her highchair. it was weird...especially since her parents were right there just letting her continue. then she tried to kiss her *gasp* once her mum read my facial expression, she yelled to her kid "personal space, PERSONAL SPACE!" well, they thought it was cute, as they went on to explain that she does this everywhere they go whenever she sees another child. in their words, they said she almost tries to "devour" other, that's not cute. so i curtly said..."perhaps you should have another child of your own."

nonetheless, they exited and we had a WONDERFUL breakfast. next, it was off to adventure-land!! we (especially she) had so much fun! pictures below...

(feeding a dragon)

(ball play)

(lit peg-board)

(peek-a-boo with mama)

(fire truck fun with a friend)

(move over, let me drive this thing!)

(grocery shopping)

(heading to the check-out lines)

(looking thru the magic musical harp)

then afterward, we headed to the sweetest place on earth for cupcakes......we had a ball, (especially when it was cupcake time!)

kitty over at young & reckless has tagged my here goes:

Here are the rules:

1. Link the person who tagged you…

2. Mention the rules in your blog…

3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours

4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them

5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged

Here are 6 things you may or may not know about PCD:

1) a while back in my old apartment, it was raining mexicans...literally. my slumlord hired non-contract workers to fix up the place above me and they didn't know what they were doing, so on thanksgiving, a mexican man came crashing thru my kitchen ceiling, blanketing my entire apartment (and my all-white pet cat, star jones) in dust.

2) i had surgery once where my lungs had to be collapsed. when i came out, it was the worst feeling. having your lungs collapsed then reinflated feels like a 2-ton person is sitting on your chest

3) i missed the first four months of my pregnancy due to negligent doctors...meaning, it wasn't confirmed that i was pregnant until i was 4 months along...(loooooooong & crazy story)

4) i sued my ex-slumlord and won...but have yet to collect one thin dime from that sleazy bloke

5) i once hydroplaned speeding in the rain while headed home with an a acquaintance following me. while my car lifted then came back down, the person behind me wasn't so lucky. they lifted then spun and hit a pole...i watched it all in horror

and Finally 6) i hate cilantro!!! the thought of it makes me dry-heave....i think its one of the worst herbs EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

now, i tag 12kyle, mizrepresent, queen, poca, elle, lady, F-it and BGG (yes, i know i added extras)

if you've done this before.....well, do it again :-) i like reading new facts about you guys :-P

OMG! I could almost just picture your facial expressions as that little girl tried to kiss your Little Miss. LOL. She's so adorable! I see you do the same thing I do when posting pics of the little ones...only use the shots in which you can't fully see his/her face.

LOL @ your Thanksgiving day being interrupted by someone falling through your roof. You only see stuff like that on TV!

I should have mine up no later than tomorrow morning. I feel so special now! LOL.

Your daughter is SO beautiful!! It looks like your "Mommy and Me Day" went well (except the stalker kid next to you at breakfast)!!

I know I wrote this the other day, but motherhood seems like the absolute best experience. I really can't wait until it's my turn!!

Thanks for the tag.

Lil PCD is beautiful! I know where you were on that beautiful day....:P CJ loved it there too. It looked a lot more tame on a weekday, I may have to play hookie after we move and take my little one again.

I promise to have my tagged up later this evening after I finish packing.

P.S. I warned you to go lay on the floor before watching that video..:)

Hello PCD,

We have yet to meet, but I read your blog all the time, but I don't comment. I feel compelled to comment because you share my hate for cilantro. I think its the dumbest spice ever and when I bite into it I get upet and it ruins my whole day. No really it does. I HATE IT TOO. Anyway, it was nice meeting you. Maybe I will come back and comment again.

Your daughter is adorable!!! Her cuteness compelled me to leave a comment. And those cupcakes look good as hell. I had to stare at those for a minute. And now of course I want me some cupcakes. Fun day indeed!

Your little girl is too cute!!

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

@ F-it...tee hee hee, i figured you would! and yes, the people who work there said it was a good day since it was a weekday but that the weekends are CRAZED!!

regardless, it was a bit much for me because i don't like kids/strangers too close to the little one...or worse, parents who dont control their kids and let them terrorize the whole place. and since you put on your detective you know where the cupcakes are from? if not, i've got to hip you to will lose your mind after tasting one...

@ nicole...welcome to the circle! and FINALLY, someone else who hates cilantro...usually i'm on my own with that one-lol!

@ f.u...welcome to the circle! and thank you :-) those cupcakes get me in lots of trouble because i cannot buy less than six at a time...and i usually eat 3 at a time :-O

@ let it out...thanks! and welcome to the circle :-)

Hey, Pretty. Thanks for keeping it going. *smile*
It's nice to get to know funny little things about people like that.
Your daughter is too cute.
Sometimes I wish I had a daughter but I love having a son. Much lower maintenance. LOL

The Flyyest said...

Boutique Mix Fashion said...

She is soooooooooooooooooo adorable!!!!

Miss Mika said...

Your daughter is absolutely beautiful. It is so refreshing seeing mothers and daughters sharing quailty time like that.

A few years ago, I too was caught in heavy rain and my car hydroplaned... into a ditch that had about 5 feet of water in it. I have never been more scared in my life than I was at the moment. To make matters worse, the water started flooding into the car and none of the doors would open so I couldn't get out! By the grace of God, a passer by stopped and was able to break my driver side window and helped me out of the car.

Gosh, I hate the rain.

jameil1922 said...

glad you didn't pick me! looove cilantro. lmao @ raining mexicans!! "it wasn't confirmed that i was pregnant until i was 4 months along"??? i need to hear that story. your doll is just that! love it! mad at the unruly kid. drives me INSANE!

Mizrepresent said...

Oh, i so love the baby pics, she is so adorable...isn't this like the best time, OMG! I will do the tag too...dammit!

12kyle said...

This is soooo cute. She is adorable. When I see pics like this it just makes me softer than soft. I don't have any girls but when I see these pics it makes me want one...for a little while at least. LOL

Ok...I'm strugglin with the tagged thing. Bloggin from the phone and not the pc is more trouble than I thought. I'm tryna participate, tho. LOL

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

@ diva...thank you. that little boy kept following my baby around. it was cute. they had just met and are relatively the same age

@ problem! i too enjoying reading things like that about bloggers...and i FEEL YOU on the maintenance thing with girls. it takes me FOREVER to get the both of us ready to go somewhere!

@ flyyest...welcome to the circle! and thank you...i had to have my lungs collapsed because i had surgery to fix a nerve in my back, but they weren't going to slice my back (sorry for the graphics!), they went in under my arm and thru my chest in teeny, tiny little openings with a camera....sooooooo, they had to collapse my lungs to see past and around them to my back.

@ miss mika...thanks! rain and driving scare me...not necessarily because of my driving, but because of things like that, which are out of your control...and other drivers. glad someone stopped to help you...i KNOW youwere freaking out!

@ jameil...i KNOW YOU like cilantro! you would like cilantro *snicker* anyhoo, i think i'll share that story...perhaps tomorrow

@ miz r...thank you! and i can't wait to read your list ;-)

@ 12kyle...well, i vote for you to have a girl. i think you should have one since you have 3 boys to protect her and you would just be in love with her, cuz girls are the sweetest! anyhoo, you WOULD be difficult...i sure hope you figure it out and get to posting your list, sir :-P

12kyle said...

Oh...I'm sure that you WOULD vote for a girl. LOL

I can't tell u how many times this crackberry has "reset" on me today. I might be getting a new one wayyyy b4 I had anticipated. Shhhhhhhh...don't tell Mrs12

The F$%K it List said...

SHARE SHARE SHARE. I have no clue where those cupcakes are from, just don't say make my cake. I'm so over them. I bake a lot these days and though I love it I welcome good treats while I am out and about!

Taryn "Skinny Genes" B. said...

yeah that seems obsessive and weird but can u blame her? lmao your little girl is beautiful..she seems like she is one of those kids that don't give you a hard time...this kind of makes me want to be a mommy some day..not now of course im only 18....but some day ^_^

PCD (Pretty Circle Drawer) said...

@ F-it...sugar sweet sunshine, 126 rivington, soho. such a little hole-in-the-wall, but the cupcakes are to die for!

@! i guess i could give her a pass, but i'm a germophobe so all that touchy-touchy gets to me :-S

Special K said...

Just wanted to say hello I'm a stalker of your blog and I thought I didn't know there were others who hated cilantro. It tastes like grass or something...uuugh!!! Take Care!!!
