    While visiting my parents' this weekend, I went up to my sister's room with the intent to feed my baby, but instead came down with an armful of shirts to borrow.

    From my 14 year old sister.

    And, no joke, I'm excited to wear the cute stuff.

    I am a bit stumped by this situation. You see, this is me at 14:

    Stake Dance

    That's right. Loads and

    YW Activity

    LOADS of style. But we've discussed all this and you already knew that.

    P.S. Where ever you may be, take part in Museum Day! Request a ticket at the Smithsonian Magazine website (link) for free admission for two people to most museums this Saturday. We've got ours. Will you join us?

    Will you take me dancing?

    Be sure to watch out for that alligator, folks.

    Worst Mom Ever Badge

    worst mom ever

    Thank you, thank you. Really, what an honor. I am overcome.
    (Hand up)
    I know I could not have gotten here alone. There are so many that I owe so much to in this.
    First, Trusty Toaster: I know I would not be here if not for you. I express my deepest gratitude.
    There are still many more that have accompanied me down this path.
    Netflix, Hulu – you two have facilitated me most in this effort, and I know we’ll never forget all of the long days and late nights.
    Choking Hazards, Sharp Objects, how many times have we, together, worked toward this goal? Too many to count.
    Of course, Audio Books, I can’t leave you out. I know ours is a recent partnership, but one I hope to see continue on for a very long time as we commit to continue in this crusade.
    Again, I want to thank all of you for this tribute, and finish off with my recognition of you, Trey: I couldn’t have done it without you!

    Lamb of God

    Last chance to squaggle your butt over to see the Lamb of God performance! Tonight, 7:30, tickets $10-$20, my husband's in it. Doooo it.

    (I don't think I've ever made as many typos as I did typing those three sentences. and this one. What in the Saturday morning?)

    Games and Guns

    Mike works super overtime right now, to make the extension deadline, which leaves Trey and I cooped up in the house with little outside contact till he gets home at eight or nine (PLEASE come play with us). I may just go crazy. So it's nice for us to get a fun break from the tedium.

    Pizza Night

    Daddy and Trey, both focused on their pizza and the game.


    We went shooting for the holiday. Mike's dad has some pretty impressive guns, to go along with my pretty impressive aim (wink). It was the perfect weather for it, and made me want to go hike the hills instead of shoot at them (which would have been a death sentence with everyone out there taking advantage of the holiday) but it was lots of fun.

    (thanks for the gif help Connie! I'm addicted.)

    Pillow Talk

    shirley: I'm sorry. When I'm in a book, I'm IN the book. It's like my id is stuck inside and can't be drawn out. You know how you keep having to ask if I'm okay? I'm perfectly fine, just have nothing to express. I'm just blank outside the book.

    mike: I won the bookmark contest in fifth grade.

    Friday, September 2, 2011

    Trey has always been a screamer, but has recently resorted to screaling to express any- and everything. I know I said I didn't want anything for my birthday, but I changed my mind. Ear plugs. Please.

    He's so cute, but it's sometimes hard to see that through the nausea his ear-shattering screams give me (really, what would life be like?).
