A Few Things

First of all thank you all so much for all of your sweet comments regarding our announcement of another baby girl! We are so excited and are thankful for your excitement for us.

I had just a few random thoughts in my head that I thought I would share with you all today.
1. If I were rich I would wear a brand new pair of socks every.single.day. I broke down and bought some super nice socks last week and it totally changed my days. I know that sounds weird but it had a huge impact on my mood.
2. I wear pearl earrings all the time. I'm not much of a jewelry person but pearl earrings are a sure thing for me.
3. I feel most beautiful at the end of the day right after I wash my face using the oil cleaning method. The warm water flushes my face with the slight amount of redness on my clean skin that just makes me feel naturally pretty.

4. When I wake up in the morning I'm so discouraged that my efforts from the day before that involved about one hour of showering, makeup, and blow-drying my hair can't carry me through more than 24 hours. I mean really?! Every day I have to do this long routine and it's only good for less than 24 hours? I just hate it! As a mom my time is not really my own and this part of the day just seems like a waste sometimes. I wish I could just wake up and look decent.

5. I bought Girl Scout cookies again this year. Every year I buy them and regret it because I have no self control when it comes to thin mints right out of the freezer. I can easily down a sleeve in one sitting and not even think twice about it.

6. I recently started watching Parenthood and Downton Abbey. Are you guys watching either of these shows? What do you think?

7. I'm working on turning our memories on the blog into a book with Blurb. So far it says I have 889 pages and I need to narrow it down a bit. Yikes! I think I can narrow it down or make multiple books, I'm just thrilled that there is a service to print it off and create a memory book.

That's it for today. It's a beautiful day and we spent all morning outside and now this Mama is tired. I think I might actually try for a nap today.  Hope yours is going great!


  1. #4!!! I stand infront of that mirror daily and think, 'really? I have to do it all again today? Am I going out, can I skip it today?' I watch my husband get in and out of the shower and be ready in 15mins...how nice. My shorter hair cut makes it easier, but just like you said, to wake up and be decent!
    #5 Cookies...I found at Target/Walmart these Oreo cookies that are 1/2 a cookie dipped in mint chocolate...my husband looks at me in surprise each time we buy a pack...I tell him, 'it's only 1/2 a cookies, so eating 4 is like eating 2 really!'
    Ha,ha ...we all think/go thru the same things...we usually just don't get to talk about it 'cause we're changing diapers and folding laundry! ;D

  2. Ben and I LOVE Parenthood! Love it!
    I don't know what we're going to do with our Tuesdays now. :(

  3. Oh yeah- we've been watching both since they first aired. Parenthood makes me cry every single week. Sheesh.

    ps- I'm sure you look great even without the effort. Beautiful people are just, beautiful. End of story!
