Tuesday's Love and I'm Better Off Without Lists...

Love List...
  • Youth basketball pictures...with a front tooth missing.  Classic.  Brings a smile to my face every time I look at it.  Even cuter?  There was a hoop in the backdrop of the photo.  When he walked up, he posed as if he was about to shoot with his back to the camera.  They had to tell him to turn around and face the camera.
  • After debating for months, tonight I finally ordered barstools for my kitchen counter.  Actually, I have not hit the order button yet, but writing this will force me to...right?
  • Despite being sick, Myles always has a smile and sweet words for me.  
  • I saw a hilarious marketing write up yesterday.  "SWAGGER body wash from Old Spice is for the man who holds complete works of Aristotle in one hand, and a delicious sandwich in the other."  I couldn't make this stuff up!!  Someone did though!  Guess they are trying to appeal to every type of man??  Or no type of man??
  • Ashlee's time on the Bachelor has come to an end.  That girl was a little too "love of my life" over the top for me.  I caved for the first time ever and read what Reality Steve has to say about this season.  Don't worry...I won't tell.
  • Songza.  I have the free app on my phone and it is with me on every ride in the car now.  It's even better than Pandora.
  • Changing the batteries in a Dreamlite tonight was enough to bring me to rockstar status in the eyes of a tiny one.
  • A special hug from my husband tonight.  Feels just like home to me...every time.
  • Peeking through the window at dance to see my baby girl twirling and shaking it at dance class. 
  • Tomorrow Jillian's preschool class is going ice skating.  She is so excited and it is the first time that she is doing something new that her brother has never done before (besides dance class).   Hoping I can make it through without being that mom that brought her own kid down on the ice. Doubtful.
  • Breakfast stew.  We have it all the time in our house.  Hashbrowns, sausage, cheese, and eggs mixed together.  If we are feeling fancy, we will do the eggs over-easy on top of the rest of the ingredients (instead of just scrambling and mixing it in together).  Awesome.  Sometimes we even make it into Breakfast Ring - where I put the stew into a crescent roll ring and bake.
  • Myles is so proud to be bathing himself and washing his hair on his own.  I love that all of the things that he learns that make my life easier are such a source of pride for him.  Mr. Independent.
I'm Better Off Without List...
  • Falling down the stairs...again.  Next time, I vow to NOT try and stop myself with the handrail.  Every time it just cranks my shoulder for no good reason because, frankly, I'm going down either way.
  • Last week when I thought nothing else could go wrong on a particular lucky (read sarcastically) day, the kids and I ran inside and scattered to different bathrooms throughout the house.  My pick?  No toilet paper.  Both kids were occupied in other bathrooms.  I had to do the waddle of shame.  Oh, yes I did.


  1. HAHAHA Waddle of shame! Classic thing that used to happen when we were young! What a perfect read for my study break!


Go ahead! Don't be shy...leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
