Hallie today for some favorites that are getting me through this week. And before I begin I will give you one thing that is NOT my favorite: that it snowed today. If it wasn't going to be beautiful the rest of the week I would have packed us up and moved when I saw the flakes. It's late April, South Bend, get with it.
Now for the good things:
Lucy's new trick:
Seriously, Ana? Kid number 3 and you're making this big of a deal over your baby saying "bababa". I know I really don't have an excuse, but it is the cutest thing and does not get old. Noami and Bernadette go crazy when she does it, they might just fall over dead when she actually learns to talk.
My new bronzer
I wear between 3 and 4 things on my face daily: mascara, powder/foundation, bronzer and occasionally lip stick. SO the fact that the bronzer I have been using for the past year sucks has been kind of tough. But I am too cheap to buy more without using the stuff that I bought that sucked. So finally it ran out! So I got his stuff and I love it. And guess what? It actually does its job and BRONZES!!
|The swing set in my parent's back yard- it started out with only the first 6 swings.|
Naomi and I just sat and stared at it for a while the other day day dreaming about being back at my parent's house with my siblings and the girls' cousins, all 19 of them, swinging on the largest swing set ever. My dad just keeps adding onto it as more grandbabies come.
Probably about once a month a few friends and me get together for margaritas, snacks, talking, laughing and all around fun sans any children. I would be embarrassed if I told you for how many days (or weeks) in advance I start looking forward to this, so I wont. Suffice it to say that it is one of the only things getting me through this day.
My shiny new food processor
Oh the things that I get excited about now that I run a home. But seriously, this baby is just that, my new baby. I might start taking it for walks it or give it its own room. I really like it. It is currently being used to grind graham crackers to make me some "Irresistible Graham Cracker Cookies" for my big social outing this evening. I will keep you posted on how they turn out, but even if they stink, the processor did a bang-up job grinding the crackers.
