Onion Beef and Pepper Stir Fry

The girl child got her ears pierced yesterday.

I didn't like the idea of piercing them when she was too small to have a say.
She got older and never wanted anything to do with it. OK. Her choice.

Last year she surprised me by mentioning it, so I waited, just in case she changed her mind.
She didn't.
(granted, she's a full consenting adult at this point)

Hubby and I made her an appt with a licensed piercer...which then promptly got cancelled due to a New England storm.
(between me and you, it was "the storm that wasn't"...more rain than snow!) reschedule later and down the road we go.

She was nervous, I couldn't get her to eat all day.
The time came...and she was a rockstar.
Hubby on the other hand...he was a mess.
He had to leave for awhile, then came back and was making a big deal stating he heard her call out "ouch" and was convinced she would come out with only one ear done.
He was taking up all of my "sneak a peek through the window" time!

She came strutting down the hall with her new blingy studs, a huge smile on her face.

Love it!

Now, she was ravenous and decided she HAD to have Chinese!
