4. Mini Industrial Glass Pendant from West Elm. We've been in the house almost two years and I'm starting to notice some things I want to change. I was sleep-deprived when we built and definitely missed some details, like a non-overhead light in the bathroom.
...since my competitive skating days are long gone, I start thinking about what I could possibly medal in now. The competitor may retire but never dies.
Laundry folding. I mean, I'm not going to say that I time myself sometimes. But sometimes I do.
Number of times I have sung, "Everything is Awesome," after last night's Lego movie viewing. More than anyone in the WORLD, I'm pretty sure.
Adult Amazon purchases. The Nosefrida would have completely grossed 24 year-old me out. 34 year-old me can't wait. If you doubt me, read the reviews. If you don't have children, please don't click on that link. But I guarantee, five or ten years from now when you too have children, you will come a-hunting on my blog for the link to the incredible snot sucker.
Kitchen mess. Am I the only one whose kitchen always looks like this when they try a new recipe?
Twizzling texts between Ken and I. (And by the way, Twizzling is a new term in figure skating and one I think, every time I hear it, "Are they really saying that? Yes. They are really saying that.")
...I am in the midst of a major house clean out/reorganization. When I am done, every room will look like the pages of a Real Simple magazine.
Ken is confused and can't find anything.
Then there's the inevitable t-shirt drawer. I have 4-5 t-shirts I rotate. But I have about 35 in my drawer. I present you with the top three I just. can't. let. go.
1. Wagamama - Molly and I discovered this when we lived in London, oh, 15 years ago. I'm 99% sure this t-shirt doesn't fit any more, but in the drawer it stays.
2. Pi Phi Intramurals. This one still fits because back when I was in college, the Stone Ages, there was no such thing as a women's size t-shirt. So everything was an XXL. Little did we know we were supplying our future maternity wardrobes.
3. Somewhere between Pi Phi Intramurals and Martha Stewart going to prison, women's sized t-shirts were invented because I'm 100% sure that this one doesn't fit. But I love it, and the message.
We flew out of the Wilmington, Delaware airport. My parents met us there.
The last time my mom was at this airport was to shake the hand of then Senator John F. Kennedy when he flew in during a campaign stop. It's been awhile.
This was the perfect airport for Charlie's first flight. Quiet, no long lines, and friendly faces.
...the paparazzi followed us out to the plane.
...he was SO excited.
...we were there to visit Carron and kids, and were lucky enough that our days overlapped with some of the days world traveler Kelly Purkey was in town. We met her for brunch where I'm pretty sure the behavior of our children convinced her to, well, never have them.
...We had a full schedule of keep those kids busy.
...A trip to the kid's museum.
...some couch jumping.
...lunch at the Choo Choo restaurant.
...Charlie's first play, Goodnight Moon.
...He loved it.
...some piano with Ellie.
...iChatting with Clara and Ellie (Clara's sweater was purchased by Daddy. The shoulder bow vaguely reminds me of one of my prom dresses? Ha).
...I was only slightly disappointed that there were no celebrity sightings this trip. Does the oldest McDonald's count?
...There's never enough time with a good friend who lives too far away.
