Miscellany Monday

The snow is falling soft and slow. It finally feels like winter… and though my husband is talking of taking down the Christmas tree this week, I think my ornaments will have to just be re-purposed as {it finally feels like} winter decorations.

My husband gave me a puzzle, chocolate, candles, and a new Owl City CD {he knows me so well}… AND he took care of me all weekend while I was sick…

I have a tote of all new art supplies :)

This is just a peak at my art-play from the other day… {lyrics from Closer by Jars of Clay}

My sister-in-law gave me some fuzzy socks

My baby boy has a walker! Before we bought his walker, he pushed around chairs, coolers, laundry baskets…

I’ve never seen a child stop mid-unwrapping a present to play with it. How did we end up with such a sweet boy? I love him.

He is copying us saying everything now. My favorite is “chee!?” (cheese… string cheese is the new favorite) and “dan-dou” (thank you… which is said especially if we are the ones saying “thank you” to him for handing over something he shouldn’t have been holding in the first place).

It’s lasagna cupcake night. You should make some, too.

So, I missed Miscellany Monday…

… but I am going to be miscellaneous anyway!

My beautiful been-through-so-much-together friend and heart-sister is married! I do not have an opposite-matching picture to go with this one yet… but will soon :)

We were away from Eli overnight for only the second time since he was born. I think I missed him more than he missed me. My mom and little sister stayed with him. We left during nap-time on Sunday and came home after he had gone to bed on Monday, so he woke up with us there in the morning on Tuesday. I’m not sure whether I am glad that he did so well or sad that he didn’t seem to be happier than normal to see me! Hmm…

Hair spray and I are not friends. Not friends at all.

Curling irons and my thick, long hair are also not friends. The curls stayed this time, thanks to my crunchier-than-autumn-leaves hair-sprayed hair… but my goodness it took forever – the hair stylist was actually trying to inlist her hair-styling neighbors to grab an extra curling iron and come help her curl.

Manicures and I? Not friends. I’m too fidgety. I think I have six layers of polish on my left thumb nail because I just couldn’t seem to go 5 minutes without messing it up.

Pedicures and I? Friends :)


I love new socks.

I have new socks.

My feet are happy :)
