Parade! 5

Parade!

Eh. I’m not too impressed. There was a parade at NikkiZ’s school today and they let her and another baby in her class be “grand marshals” because they looked so cute in their red, white, and blue outfits. They put them in a double stroller adorned with streamers and had them lead the rest of the kids in their parade. It was so damn adorable I kinda teared up in pride. It was cheesy and ridiculous but totally awesome all at the same time. It’s a good thing I didn’t buy the American flag bikini I saw at Old Navy...

Politeness is a number one priority

I’ve mentioned before that I love NikkiZ being in the toddler class now, because the kids are so fun to play with each time I go feed her. I have a soft spot in my heart reserved for the two boys in the class, one who has the name NikkiZ would have had if she had been a boy, and the other is the one who blows me kisses when I leave. All of the kids learn their signs and the Kiss-Blower knows them VERY well. Today, he went up to the other boy while he was eating, took a...

So, I have this stack of pre-pregnancy pants/capris in my bedroom. I’ve been using them as a gauge to indicate when I’m at my pre-pregnancy size as I’ve been slowly but surely able to squeeze myself into more and more of them. (I stacked them with the biggest/loosest on top and the tiniest/tightest on bottom). This morning? I thought about trying the denim capris on that I could not fasten closed last week (but I could pull them up, which was a big step). I pulled them on and sucked it in (and in, and in, and in) and possibly...

Finally, I can get this off my chest.

Remember my camera issues?. After the second time of having to send my camera back (through Best Buy) for repairs, I said: I still love Best Buy because they send my camera off and deal with the repair company for me, they yell at them for me, they send mean notes for me, and they listen to me cry and don’t judge me. The repair company that has my camera is in Conneticut and they seem to be the ones with issues. Now, I’ve looked them up and they come highly recommended so I’m not mentioning them here because my...

Excitement Abounds! 30

Excitement Abounds!

I just wrote an entire entry about Summer that when I went back and re-read? I fell asleep it bored me so much. So – instead? I’m going to make a list of other things that excite me way more than the average person: Lists. Man, I love lists. Especially bulleted ones. Pens, but I talk about that enough already so I won’t add anymore to that item. Pretty papers. Amy got me into making my own greeting cards and I admitted to her I loved the hobby because it gave me justification for keeping scraps of pretty paper that...
