(Shamelessly stolen from Miss Britt)

…. I’ve never been to the movies alone. Just never done it, but not opposed to it.

….I love hershey bars dipped in Jif peanut butter…lots of peanut butter

…. the recliner in our bedroom is piled to the top with clean clothes that need to be hung up

…. I’ve never seen West Side Story

…. I had a dream last night that I was able to take anything I wanted from a giant Coach store for free.  I was there (in mythical land) with a bunch of models.

…. My dad has never referred to me as his ‘baby’. (Unlike Steve Martin’s character in Father of the Bride II)

…. I’ve only not finished a book like twice in my life. No matter how crappy, I can’t generally leave a book unfinished.

…. I love the smell of the cleaning aisle in Target and Meijer (and so does Preston)

…. My plans for sewing all day and into the night today were thwarted by (1) my machine falling apart (2) being interrupted by the kids and dog every 2 minutes and (3) Matt deciding to ‘work’ in my room on his coloring/pasting/writing and basically taking over.

…. Preston is getting a cold and WILL NOT GO TO SLEEP.

…. Mike built a giant workbench for the garage today. The man has mad skillz when he wants to.

….. The thing I miss most about having a baby around is how soft and sweet and cuddly they are in those feety pjs.

The footy pajamas have a mysterious power: I do not care how NOT adorable my children are being, it is impossible for me to do anything but smile at how adorable they look in those things.
Which is why we don’t have any in this house.

Yeah, what IS it about the feetie pajamas? I almost cried when my then 12-month old daughter decided she hated having her feet covered.

I’ve never been to the movies alone either.
Wouldn’t Reese peanut butter cups be the same thing?
I’ve got two baskets just waiting to be put away in my room also.
I never saw that movie either.
I dream every night… and usually it’s about me getting lost or I can’t find something.
My Dad never referred to me as his baby either, but we never talked much, and don’t talk at all now.
I have many unfinished books.
Clean smell is good.
It is definitely hard to get ANYTHING accomplished with kids around.
My kids are just getting over colds… luckily they slept well, baby just woke up at 5am everyday… much earlier than usual.
Go MIKE… sounds awesome…
Feety pj’s are cute… my oldest used to unzip them and take them off all the time, just cause… so we stopped putting them on her. I prefer two piece pj’s. But definitely zippered ones for the baby… who wants to snap all those buttons.

My baby is nursing in a quilted vest, pretty sweet, swishy cuddling.

Sorry you didn’t get to sew!

The chair in my room is also the “clean clothes chair”.
