This & that.

*Remnants of Christmas are still scattered around the house.  Next year I am asking Santa for an un-decorating crew.

*It is warm and sunny and the beach sounds better than anything right now.

*I chopped up Junior Mints and mixed them in to vanilla ice cream.  One would think that would be perfection in a bowl, right?  Inexplicably, it wasn't.  At all.

*Just ordered Ann Voskamp's One Thousand Gifts to read along with the inCourage Bloom book club.  I simply cannot wait.
*This kid threw up at school today.  So sad.

*This kid is up to the same shenanigans that her big sister drove me crazy with.  Grrrr.   NOT COOL BABY.

*The tunic I ordered for this kid to wear in our family pictures is GIANT.  Sizing can be so weird sometimes.

*So unless I get some time and guts to cut in to this pretty pile of fabric to make her a dress, we are in big, big, big trouble.  Does the entire look and flow ride on one outfit?  Heck yes.  Have I been planning this for a year?  Absolutely.  Do I always scramble at the very last minute?  Hello.  Am I going to try a new and daunting pattern?  With buttonholes?  Hold me.

*This recipe is cooking in the crock pot and smells amazing.  Is it dinnertime yet?

*Totally bummed that I ran out of Nutella because I would love to make this recipe right this very minute.

*This print makes me all kinds of happy.

With that, I'm out.  Happy Tuesday to you!

  1. Your little ones are just so cute! What a shame about the giant tunic. I have a pretty dress up for auction at the moment which might take your liking; http://offthepeg.blogspot.com/2011/01/flood-appeal-auction-get-bidding.html

  13. Your girls are just too precious.
    And its funny we recently bought kenzie a few of feety pjs that zip and as I put one on her a couple weeks ago, I thought of you and that incident and wondered if I'd find a naked child in the morning. But I didn't... lucky me. ;)

  19. Arrghhh! My two year old DD was pulling the same shenanigans! But only if I put her in one piece jammies. If I put her in two piece jammies she doesn't do it. What the? Kids are weird. :)

  30. Reading the Poopgate 2007 made me laugh SO hard! That is hilarious and ridiculous at the same time! I'm so sorry you had to do that. I'm almost sure I might have thrown the crib away, along with every other thing it touched!!

  32. Haha i used to put my boys' zipper pjs on backwards like a straightjacket. It will be better soon and you will wonder how they were ever that little. But I guess you know that already.

  33. did the thin mints turn rock hard?
    I once thought perfection was candy corn in vanilla ice cream.
    thought it would make me BIG MONEY.
    nearly broke a tooth
    like rocks in ice cream

    I miss the beach in January
    why did I move to CT? TOO MUCH SNOW!
    well...your pretty pictures warmed me, so it is all good :-)
