Friends Rule

Can I just say, I have the best group of friends ever. Hands down. Yesterday a surprise box arrived in the mail. Filled with some of my fav yummy Trader Joe's treats. Thank You! Thank You! This totally made my day. One of the many things I miss about living in CA is Trader Joes. I used to do at least half of my regular shopping there. And especially now with kids, I would love to have one near, but for the moment, it is not to be.

Great friends, you know who you are, my belly is very happy right now, mmm...

Friends rule.

I've been cheating

You may have noticed as of late my posts have been a bit sporadic. I have a confession to make. I have been cheating on this blog. I didn't plan it, it just... sort of... happened. Innocently enough, we were just to be friends. But I got caught up. And have been seeing him on a daily basis. Yes, folks, I have been cheating on Dean and the Dixon Chicks with...


There, I've said it. It's finally off my chest. I've felt horrible about neglecting you, and honestly, it feels great to be back. But I know I will digress again. I've accepted I am not a monogamous internet poster and I am okay with that. So I will continue this relationship, because I do love you so, my precious blog. But you will have to share me with my facebook friends. It doesn't mean I love you any less, it just means I am well rounded. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

In the meantime, Natalie has started her new preschool and now goes every morning. We both love this! She is starting to write her name, which is amazing for me to see. And she's starting to ask all the "why" questions. It's been so fun to watch her develop and start trying to understand why things are the way they are.

Katherine is on the cusp of walking and I love watching her motor around the house. She appears to be more of a daredevil than Natalie and is chattering away non-stop. It is adorable. I love, love this age and just want to bottle it up. I could literally sit in a chair and just watch her all day an be thoroughly entertained. Yeah, I love that gal.

Here are a few of the latest photos for your enjoyment.

Summer Fun - Joan, if you lived here you could hang in the pool with us.
