What I {Threw Together} Today

Here's a list of um random.

I made a birthday card.

Yes, that's a Snuggie.

No, I have no idea how to draw a soccer ball.

I sewed Mia's costume with help from this and this.


I have more to show you about this later.  We're going to wine country again this year so I'll have plenty of pics to share.

I want to read this book.

But I still have all these books to start.

I carved my pumpkin.

Not as classy as last year but equally fun. (holy crap look how small Mia is!)

Michelle found something called a ghost pumpkin the innards are melon colored. Tres cool.

I have an art crush on Helmut Smits.

I want to try to bake my own bread, any recipes or tips?

I really love cutting things with my new pinking shears.

One time Michelle and I cleaned the entire kitchen floor with wet wipes.

I'm going to make some friendship bracelet and/or necklace type things.  If your lucky I might make you one too...maybe.

I'm seriously craving a vanilla latte.  

And some new boots.

And scarf wearin time.

Oooh and I want a pom pom maker! 

Seriously, where's my latte?

What I {Discovered Is Very Different From When I Was A Kid} Today

I used to love rides.

Now I kind of hate them.

I know this because I recently went on a date (yes, those do happen occasionally) to a county fair.

The guy totally gets points for the fair idea. Making me go on the rides however...

I convinced him to go easy on me with the first ride.  It was basically a ski lift thing that went across the length of the fairgrounds.  It moved like 5mph.  I had a death grip on the lap bar the entire time.

I do love the way everything looked that night though.

I got that same excited feeling I did as a kid.

But now there was a dash of fear mixed in there.

There were all these old timey steam engines which were crazy cool to look at.  I wish I had had a legit camera.

I don't know what this thing is called, but I feel like I've seen one before.  Its like a giant music box with a full band playing the songs. Again it looked much better in person.  Damn camera phone!

A funnel cake was a also consumed but really you don't want to see what that looked like...

WARNING: The next few images might frighten you.  They also might alter your world view so proceed with caution... 

Everyday Mia and I watch Sesame Street.  It's her favesies.

She's a huge Elmo fan.  I personally prefer Murray and his little lamb, Ovejita.  Murray is kind of the host for the show these days but he does star in his own segment called "Murray Has a Little Lamb".  It's my favesies.  First off the intro song is awesome.  And Murray is so funny and Ovejita is so clever. I could go on but just see for yourself...

So I was thinking, Murray goes out into the "real world" a lot more than most Street characters. So how do they keep the magic alive for the little ones?  Well I googled and...

They don't.

How weird!

Was I the only kid didn't know they were puppets?  



It's just too weird to look at Sesame Street this way.  

The kids don't look totally freaked out so I guess the Street peeps know what their doing.

How about you? Any childhood revelations?

What I {Have For You} Today

Sigh...its been a harsh summer.  Hopefully we'll get an extra long fall to make up for it. Mia has a new found love for playing outdoors.  She picked a lovely day to do it. 

Well there was this cloud...

But we told it to scram!

That's better.

I might a little generous when I say she likes to "play" outside.  Really all she does is walk in circles and yell at the dogs.

And then she'll squat...

Apparently this isn't unusual.  Babies love to squat.

This playtime made it abundantly clear that Mia needs to get her bangs trimmed.  

Poor kid has to do the Justin Bieber hair flip.

Did I ever tell you I had a moment with Justin Bieber? I did.  It was magic, we totally made FULL ON eye contact. My tummy gets dizzy just thinking about it...

In addition to wandering in circles Mia also attempts throwing her ball

I just love this pic for some reason.

When she's not yelling at the dogs she'll try to throw the frisbee.

She's also crazy fearless about putting her hand in Trin's mouth.  It freaks me out every time but it makes Mia giggles like crazy.

Then I was a super mean FGM and {gasp} put a hood on the baby!

She hates hoods.  Can you tell?


Proof of my existence.

And now it's time for "Holy Crap That's A Lot Of Freckles!"

They came on strong this year.

Sometimes I forget I have them.

And then I see these. 

YIKES!  Although I can't imagine what it would be like to not have them. 

And now as promised, I have some pictures of my beautiful new niece!

Snuggling with mom...

Resting from the trauma of birth...

Looking confused...

And gettin some love...

Oh how I love babies!

And because I'm so full of love...

And I got a 95 on my paper proposal...

The gift of scarf or hat!
