Half Way There

13.4 lbs and crazy hair. Smiling, rolling, laughing when you kiss her belly and her toes. Loves her feet and her dad. I spy on them reading together in the rocking chair.
Elle likes bright lights and car rides too. "Ma ma ma," I love to hear her say. But most of all I love those big brown eyes that search for me throughout any room. And those little chubby arms that say "come hold me please." And I do.

March Madness

Conversation while watching Arizona play some other team.

Me: What does a center do?

D: You mean the position?

Me: Yes.

D: Block shots, play defense and rebound. They are the tall players.

Me: If I were a professional basketball player what position would I play?

D (without any hesitation and in a completely serious tone): the bench...for sure.

It's funny because it's true. I like that he added "for sure," just in case I thought he was on the fence about it.

If you only do one thing today

You must check this blog out. May be the best blog in the UNIVERSE. If I were on the committee for the best blogs out there, this one would win the little icon to display on their front page with pride.

Little Face

I think babies look like cartoons. No flaws, round faces, big eyes, and fantastic expressions.

Can't sleep....

I've loaded the dishwasher, cleaned the counter tops, made D's lunch, put sticky note messages in his lunch sack, then played with this photo. I think it will go downstairs in the green polka dot room.
What do people do at 4 am when they can't sleep?

For Real

We met Twitch!!! D spotted him and I instantly turned into a huge dorky fan. I blurted out, "Will you take a picture with me, I'm kind of in love with you?" He looked at D and Elle then started cracking up. He was probably thinking, 'Who is this girl declaring her love for me in front of her husband?!!!'

But he gave me a huge hug and graciously took a picture with us and talked to us for awhile. He was so nice. He was on his way to Salt Lake for a workshop he was teaching. Of course I had to call Holly, Annie and Whit right afterward-I was on cloud nine! Okay so I'm still giddy about it.

Happy Feet

New goal: notice one thing everyday that makes me happy. Yes, Oprah's the queen of the gratitude journal-personal chef, bizillionarie, gorgeous homes, girl's school is South Africa...who wouldn't want to jot that down?

My list won't be quite the same, but D does make a mean twice baked potato ("Mmmm, sweet potato"-you have to watch The Soup to get that). And since I'm more of a visual person, instead of writing down what I'm grateful for I'm going to take a picture of it. Here's to being happy today.

March is making me happy

And so is she. Everyone should have a friend like her. Need a little boost in your day? Or even if you don't, check out how amazing she is here.

Bringing Sexy Back

Victoria Secret is bringing sexy+chic back to swimwear. I love some of their suits this year. Very J. Crewesque, without the J.Crew price tag.

I even liked this one glamazon suit which reminded me of a red carpet dress. Formal pool parties might be this summers hot ticket.
BUT beware of this one...

The suit looks like a tug boat that has dropped it's anchor and for a VS model she looks completely flat-chested. If she can't get away with this swim suit-no one can.

I've always been a magazine addict. Ads and all, I love the glossy pages, creativity, photography...
I'm starting a project that is long over-due. I'm going through each and every one of the issues that I have stored in my basement and ripping out the pages I find inspiring/clever/well done and cataloging them in a binder. Spring 2001 Martha Stewart done, a gazillion to go.

Now that Martha (and everyone else) has a blog to archive all the latest and greatest ideas and have a keystroke away, I wonder if it's worth it....
