week in review


I'm so into Bloom right now, that sometimes I forget about my personal blog. Here's where I'm at this week...

Tuesday was one of the worst days ever. Right up there with the day I barfed 9 million times on a plane, while holding a baby in my arms, getting puke all over me and the person-behind-me's luggage. It started with a painful infection and ended with a $242 ticket for not waiting until a pedestrian was all the way on the other side of the street before proceeding through a crosswalk. Awesome. But. In light of a tragic car accident in the family of some good friends of ours--involving one death, one coma, and one 3-month-old baby, now in the care of her grandparents, I looked at my day and chalked it up as not much.

Today I am gearing up for painting my bedroom and packing for a trip to Utah, both of which stresses are such happy ones! I'm also contemplating a hair cut of a few inches because I feel like my hair is taking over. (Anyone seen The Peanut Butter Solution?) I mean for real, if I let it get much longer I'm going to look like a polyg.

What else can I tell you? The boys moved in together. Which was hard at first but now it works and is pretty much the most adorable sleepover every night. Taylor and I are obsessed with DesignStar (anyone else?) and I am in a constant search for the right elements to finish my living room, which is totally devoid of color, style, and sufficient seating. I am harvesting tomatoes galore, which brings me such delight. And you should see our pumpkin patch (which Blaine and Taylor take great care of--see photo above)! I'm working hard mentally each day to control my tendency to make stress out of nothing, and just enjoy my boys. All 3 of them. I love them.

Loves.

Peanut Butter Solution! Holy trip down memory lane? Think I could find that on Netflix! Probably give my kids nightmares!
