Look who’s talking

We’ve now added “bubbles” to “yum” in our vocabulary.  Scott said “bubble” for the first time during bubble time at gym class on Tuesday.  I almost cried when he looked up and said, “Ooooh, bubble.”  He’s started to mimic us more and more (which means I really need to start watching what I say in […]

Reading Catch Me if You Can by Frank Abagnale Jr. Looking forward to watching the end of the season finale of Downton Abbey this evening. Training to run the Shamrock Shuffle 10k in March. Doing […]

Hope you’ve had a full recovery from Valentine’s Day – just in time for Girl Scout cookies to arrive. We had a pretty nice weekend. I followed my rules, and got Daniel the card shown above and some licorice and candied ginger (I find both abhorrent) for Valentines Day, and we went out to dinner […]

The greatest love of all

by Chelsea Myers on February 14, 2014

Yesterday Katie at Pick any Two shared a post on 5 ways to say “I love you” to yourself on Valentines Day.  Here are my 5 favorite gifts to myself: 1. A bag of candy that no one else likes.  No matter how long I let it sit in the freezer, that big bag of […]
