April has not been the funnest month ever in spite of a few fantastic bright spots. Like, on the one hand, my aunt came to visit us for a few days and we had an amazing time showing her around town. On the other hand, the house keeps trying to fall apart. My son turned eight … Continue reading What I’m into Lately: April 2014
Last week BB and I were at the grocery store and she spotted the most adorable handbag for sale. Yes our grocery store randomly had children's handbags for sale - it was in their little seasonal / toys / miscellaneous / things your child is about to beg you for aisle and I almost said … Continue reading I made her an offer she couldn’t refuse.
My son just had another karate promotion. They promote roughly every two months so after awhile it's kinda like ::yawn:: Oh, another one?

Zoo memories over the years... We went to the zoo last week and looking through pictures I realized this is our sixth year of visiting this zoo. Or really sort of the fifth year because you aren't supposed to include the first year (or this year?) but I'm too lazy to change my graphic that … Continue reading My how they’ve grown!
