Fab Five Friday Foto(s)...kind of.

I am pleased to announce that I am resurrecting a long and sorely neglected portion of this sad excuse of a blog...FAB FIVE FRIDAY FOTO(S)!!!

Except there shall only be four foto(s) today, rather than the aforementioned five. Please forgive me for this sad state of things. After Steve and I returned from our wild, highly impractical, probably foolish, and terribly fun epic date from Morton's Steakhouse in downtown Chicago, my poor wittle squishy Daniel settled in to what has appeared to be a 4-day long bout with the stomach flu. Back to reality. I am fully intending on writing an tremendously long-winded, highly pretentious review of our astounding dinner at Morton's, but in the meantime, here's a few pics to tide thee over. Note: The lighting is very poor. I tried using the lightest filters I could find in Instagram, but Morton's is a super dark restaurant. Grr.

I just happened to be seated by the front portion of the kitchen at Morton's. How incredibly fitting is that?? I was simply mesmerized.

This, my dear friends, is nothing other than Morton's house bread and butter. When we cut into it, the steam arose in a most tantalizing and aromatic wisp, and it was the finest onion bread I have ever laid a taste bud on. And the butter!! Don't even get me started. I literally wanted to stick the butter in my purse and take it home for safekeeping. And smearing across anything that could possibly lend itself to consumption. Truly, the finest butter I have ever had.

The Odd Couple. I will go over everything on our plates later on in the most excruciating detail possible.

Poor little man. Ah, well. This too shall pass. Stay tuned for a truly pretentious restaurant review- coming soon!!

Unable to Help Myself

It's been a shocking week here at The Epic Adventures of Skarymop & Co. Really, truly, shocking. Shocking in the best way possible, though. On Tuesday, we made the most unexpected and most delightful discovery.

Do you want to know?


Oh, okay. I understand. Stay tuned for more adventures next week!!

BWA HA HA. Just kidding.

Something that I thought would never happen...

We are having a baby girl!!! (Forgive the lousy lighting.)

It's true. After three boys, we assumed that we were boy breeders, and I had long put the thought of pink and frills out of my mind. I am fully aware that giving birth to three boys in succession is not highly unusual, but we really, really, REALLY did not think a baby girl was in our future. So don't mind the non-stop goofy grins plastered across our faces...we're just busy having our socks blessed off.

In other news, I walked into the living room after dinner tonight because it was eerily quiet. I had just finished cleaning up the kitchen after dinner, and I could have sworn I heard David whisper,"Let's take off our shirts and pants." This is never a good thing. So I walked into the living room to see two boys jumping up and down on the couch, pretending to punch each other, clad only in their underpants. Lucas was gleefully crawling around, clad in only a precariously sagging diaper. I surveyed the scene, took a few pictures with my phone, sent them to my sister, and then thought,"This little girl is going to have to be one tough little cookie." And then I remembered all of the things I survived with my brother, and proceeded to feel a little bit better. It's going to be an amazing journey.
Speaking of amazing journeys, the Canadian Lumberjack and I will be heading down to Chicago tomorrow night for a memorable feast at Morton's Steakhouse. I'm thinking a lobster and steak combination will hit the spot quite nicely. I. CANNOT. WAIT. It's an extreme rarity these days for us to embark on such an epic date, but we have a tendency to go a little crazy when there's a baby on the way. Yay for ridiculously ambitious date nights! I plan on eating much, walking much, and taking some pictures.
Well, that just about covers it for now. I'll be posting pics from our date night, and I also plan on resurrecting the long-neglected FAB FIVE FRIDAY FOTO(S)!!

Starting next week, of course. :)
