  • I've been feeling like this winter is never ending and my family can't catch a break in the sickness department.  One week my son is sick and the next week, me and Dave are sick.  After 3 ear infections in three months, it seems that Dylan is AGAIN coming down with another cold.  Meanwhile, I'm finally at the tail end of my cold and cough. Is it just me or does it seem like the cold symptoms will never end when you're going through it?  Then one day, magically, it's just gone!  Here's hoping that Spring REALLY is around the corner and today was the last snow storm of the season.
  • Dylan's been doing great with sleeping, but this morning I woke up at 4 o'clock and just KNEW he was going to get up.  Sure enough a few minutes later, he woke up and I brought him in bed with me and watched him sleep.  Sometimes there is nothing better than cuddling with your baby and watching them sleep.  Motherhood really is so amazing. Also amazing... how your body can adjust to broken sleep...

  • I've been feeling like maybe the reason I keep getting so sick is because I'm not working out.  And maybe I'm {ALMOST} ready to make time for it in my life.  I tested about half of the fit test of the Insanity workout before having a baby emergency and it felt good to sweat.  So, maybe, just maybe I do miss working out... just a little.

  • I went to a get-together at my friend Laura's and I got a glimpse into what life would be like 10 kids.  Not that I would ever have that many, but having ten kids under 5 in one house was quite a sight to see.  I felt bad for Laura because collectively, we destroyed that house in less than 2 hours.  But it was fun!
  • Oh and lastly, after finishing all five seasons of Friday Night Lights, I went on a search for another great series to watch during my commute.  I've started Parenthood and I like it, but don't love it.  I also started Girls and got so hooked that I've already finished the first 2 seasons.  After the first few episodes I didn't think I was going to like it, but it's just so well-written and intriguing that it draws you in and you can't look away.
  • Edited to add- another random thing to add... I've been totally inspired by one of my bff's Stephanie and all the DIY stuff she does at her two homes.  And lately, her latest endeavor- re-doing her kitchen at her Cape house, has led to us thinking (and hopefully acting) about doing the same.  Go check out Stephanie's blog- better yet, add it to your reader... err... FREELY and get inspired!
What's been going on with you lately?

  2. Please promise you'll give Parenthood a fair shot... It is an incredible show, and you will grow to LOVE it!!!!!

  3. Parenthood is my absolute favorite show! Like Jenny said I think you'll grow to love it. I also just started watching Girls... I'm only 4 episodes in, but I think I'll be watching the rest of them.

  4. Don't worry girls, I'm still watching. Just not in love. Yet.

  5. I LOVE Parenthood... maybe cause it makes me think of becoming a parent :) Love that first picture of Dylan!
