MISS BEATRIX IS HOME!!!
Miss Beatrix arrived yesterday, but they made me sign for the package so I couldn't get her until today! But I'm sure she wasn't lonely waiting for me because she brought home a friend, and so much more! Loops this is an AMAZING package. I now feel my package was crap. And might be sending something a little supplementary as a feeble attempt to reach your level of greatness!
Here come pics!!!
The total lot (please note Miss B in the back in her awesome new sleeping bag and hat):
A beautiful scarf from the Cotswolds:
Lots of yummy looking foodies (I already ate the marshmallow bit!):
Brochures, a neat calendar, and an ADORABLE coffee wristlet/clutch:
Puzzles, postcards, keychains, cookbook:
Lovely keychain and coin purse from the Tailor of Gloucester museum:
And of course, the amazing scrapbook!! Loops I CANNOT believe this was your first scrapbook!:
Thanks for an AMAZING swap Ms. Loops. You and MR took great care of Miss B, and she will treasure her memories for a lifetime. Best of all, she is now "Miss Beatrix, World Traveler" rather than "Miss Beatrix, gift from former best friend!" A much happier history! THANK YOU!!~May 25th~
Last night my Mom and I had tickets to see American Ballet Theater perform the ballet "Le Corsaire" at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. So we smuggled Super Monkey into the theater in my purse, and he had a blast!
Here's Super Monkey inside the Met, sitting on the balcony right in front of our seats:
Reading the Playbill to figure out the (as a general rule) convoluted ballet plot:
Some of the cool lights at the Met:
More pics, as always, on the blog!~May 11th~
Super Monkey and I had an exciting weekend, to make up for the crappy last week. Last night I took him to a party, and here are a few of the highlights (as always, more on the blog).
Picking out what to drink:
Getting some lovin from my friend Danielle:
Riding my friend Mike trying not to get an FWI (flying while intoxicated!!)
Then today we went on a hike and picnic with my family to celebrate Mother's Day.
Hanging out in a tree:

The trail we hiked:~May 7th~
I have been feeling sick for the past few days, so Super Monkey and I haven't been doing much. Here we are having some noodle soup - the ultimate comfort food!~APRIL 29th~
Today was a busy day for Super Monkey!! His bio told me (as did SM himself) one of his favorite activities is kickboxing. Lucky for him I just so happen to take a kickboxing class every Tuesday at 6am! Here we are arriving at the gym, still a littly sleepy, since we had to get up at 5am to get there on time.
My instructor was so excited to have a new student!
She even gave him some personal instruction (that's him in the back!)
Later at work, he hung out in my cubicle:
And held a meeting in the boardroom:
The day ended with dinner at a Mexican restaurant with my friend Anne:

Today was an average day for me, not too exciting for Super Monkey. In the morning I set about making a fruit smoothie for me and SM for breakfast. He got impatient while I was chopping the fruit, and stole my strawberries (see that guilty look in his eyes?)
But then when I explained he would get some of the smoothie when it was finished he gave them back, but told me to hurry it up he was hungry! When I finally gave him the smoothie he enjoyed it very much, and the cool sake glass I served it to him in...
After that we took a ride to one of my favorite local parks, so that I could get some exercise! Here we are driving there (SM claimed this as his spot while driving so that he can keep his eye on the road AND me!):
SuperMonkey doesn't care for walking, he'd rather fly around, so while I walked he flew for awhile and then was intrigued by the dog park at my park, and silently observed from the car:

When he arrived, Super Monkey immediately flew up to my chandelier and wouldn't come back down (he thought I had stolen the box in transit and tried to kidnap him!)
It wasn't until I showed him this postcard of his home addressed to me that he finally realized I was his hostess!
Partly to break up the embarrassing moment now passed, and partly because he'd been crammed in a box all week, SM decided to take a quick flight around the world (one of his favorite activities). He likes to be like Superman and get exercise at the same time!
When he got back he was hungry so we had a snack, some of the lovely candy he brought at a hostess gift. It was delicious, and unlike anything I'd had before!
On my way home from work last night I stopped at Bed, Bath, and Beyond to buy something I had long desired - a recipe stand! Tired of getting food on my cookbooks, and having to wash my hands every time I wanted to open to the page, you know? So Super Monkey offered to use his super fast skills and put it together for me. Here's an action shot of the putting together (I'm surprised it's not blurry he was so fast!) and a shot of him modeling the finished product:
So then I immediately set about making dinner. SM hung around while I cooked. Quite literally.
When I finally tucked him in for the night he made me promise to post this pic and tell Mr and Ms Loops that he said "Goodnight!"
