I've enjoyed my short stint of unemployment, even taking a vacation with my good friend Justy to Seattle. We had sooooooo much fun, and by fun, I mean good food. It was awesome to see some old friends and a bit of the city (Thanks Alanna!) but for me personally the highlight was meeting my new baby cousin Bison.
Of course no visit to the Emerald City would be complete without a Dora update. I am happy to report that her vocabulary is greatly increasing... she even can say my name now! There is nothing sweeter than hearing her call out "Tia Emily", even if I am pretty sure she is still too young to know what "tia" means. Justina pointed out that she probably thinks that my full name is "Tiaemily" , but that's okay, I take what I can get.
