Easter Weekend

We had a wonderful Easter weekend. The boys went to Ma & Big Daddy's house for the weekend, so we only had Elizabeth for the weekend. The life of a one child parent is so simple, at least it seemed that way to us.

After dropping the boys off, Beth and I took Elizabeth to The Cheesecake Factory. I had received a generous gift card for Christmas from a co-worker and we somehow managed to spend it all. I think I'm still on the sugar high.

Saturday morning we took Elizabeth to an Easter Egg hunt in the s/d. She was so cute when she went up to the Easter Bunny and gave him a big hug. We then cleaned out our garage and can now actually park Beth's van in there. Hopefully someday we can get my car in there too. We're really not that far away, but we sure do have a lot of stuff. We took advantage of only having Elizabeth and went out to dinner again Saturday night at La Parilla, a great mexican restaurant up near Bentwater. They have a great performer there too. He sounds terrific and it's very entertaining for the kids. This could easily be the most kid-friendly restaurant in Atlanta; no wonder it's so crowded.

Sunday we went to Athens to spend Easter with Beth's family. The kids did a huge egg hunt in Ma & Big Daddy's yard and we had a wonderful lunch at Memaw's. We were required to take all three kids home with us, so reality set back in pretty quickly. It was a great weekend. You can see all of the pics herePosted by Picasa

No more trips to Vietnam

Well, last week was a big week for me. I decided to leave FCG and return to work for Coca-Cola Enterprises. I had been talking with the people I know at CCE since late last year about working with them and they finally had a position open up a couple of weeks ago. I'm excited to go back there and work on the business side of the company versus the IT side. I start on Apri l16. I will be working in the Revenue Management Department as the Forecasting & Planning Manager. Essentially I will be the business process owner, facilitator, and coordinator of all forecasting and planning activities within the company. That involves working with all of the regional and corporate business units to ensure that the tools and related processes are thoroughly integrated across finance, revenue management, supply chain, logistics and sales. I will also be responsible for managing all of the support tools and solutions, so I still get to be a Project Manager. This is a big job with lo

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don't know anyone that loves to bake cookies more than me. Better yet, I get to eat as many as I want. So I decided to create a video of how I make them. It's basically this recipe . To make them vegan:  Use 1/4 cup of applesauce (from Whole Foods in the UK) for each egg Use margarine instead of butter Use dark chocolate chips (you can get a 2KG bag of chocolate chips at Costco).  Ignore the nuts. Who likes nuts in cookies anyway? Blasphemy! The biggest cautious is to NOT melt the margarine/butter. This makes the cookies too oily and they turn out flat. I've made this mistake too many time. Instead, let the margarine/butter come to room temperature. Enjoy!

Saigon Walking Tour

I was going to put the picture of me with the two Thai twins here, but I thought that'd probably not be the best idea. David, Jeff, Scott & I went on a walking tour of Saigon Saturday. Our goal was to hit as many of the historical places as possible. This will probably come as no shock to most of you, but I was the tour organizer. The pictures from our tour can be see here . - Hotel Continental: Built in the French colonial days, this was a common meeting place for journals and diplomats during the Vietnam War. - Nha Hat Thanh Pho (Municipal Theatre): Built in 1899 as Saigon's Opera House, it later served as the National Assembly (Congress) of South Vietnam until 1975 when it became a theatre again. - Nha Tho Duc Ba (Notre Dame Cathedral): Built in 1880 by the French on the site of an old fort, this is still an active Catholic church. - The Virgin Mary: This is the statue of that was reportedly seen crying. - Buu Dien Trung Tam (Central Post Office): Built by the F
