today

when i don't have a name for a blog post i title it today.
i wonder how many blog posts i have titled that.

my man came home last night. he was gone since monday for work. we are so happy to have him back… he's off this weekend and it's mother's day. so i'm, naturally, expecting a forty minute massage, our christmas lights taken down (i know), this camera bag, and a day of changing no diapers. what? are those high hopes or something?

pretty flowers from my honey lover.

my boys have had the worst smelling diarrhea i have ever experienced in my entire life these past few days. i'm sorry if i'm making you gag but i need someone to gag along with me. as i was filling up their cups with this fresh squeezed apple juice yesterday, while pondering the situation, it finally hit me that i never give them fresh squeezed apple juice... and they have been downing it the past few days. how do you even squeeze an apple? i stopped giving the apple juice and the poop stopped while i simultaneously heard the hallelujah choir break out in song.

today i took a battery that was in my pocket out and rubbed it on my lips like chapstick for at least two whole seconds before i realized it wasn't what i thought it was. those who know me in real life will not be surprised by this. and i don't even know why there was a battery in my pocket to begin with.

i am so…what's the word that i'm looking for... clever? educated? smart? these days.

it has been so dreary and rainy here in new york this past week. so, i had to take the boys outside yesterday morning, even though it was 50 degrees and about to pour again. we needed some sanity fresh air. my hubs is in the process, meaning he hasn't started it yet but it's on his honey do list, of making a cover for the fabulous sandbox he made. until then, a tarp it is. do tarps have holes in them or something? i thought that they would be pretty useless if there are little holes everywhere. well, i took off the tarp and let the boys dive in, only to look over a minute later and see brody sinking. s i n k i n g. i couldn't see his calves. he had no idea what was going on.

thank you, tarp.

my first yarn wreath is STILL on our front door. out of all the wreaths that i've made these past eight months you would think i would have changed it. i think i am just really in love with the colors of that wreath with the colors of our house. and you know what they say… if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

the lights that are coming off this weekend. they were frozen there until last week.
kidding.
sort of.

that little deck however is broken and will be going buhbyes soon. i am trying to convince my man that we need a much bigger deck with room for a table and chairs. he is trying to convince me that we need a stoop and money doesn't grow on trees.

we do need a lawn mower though. i guess that comes with the territory of buying a house. anyone? anyone?

i cannot wait until september. we have a lake house in the adirondack mountains for a week, it's our five year wedding anniversary and i head out to california for blog sugar to body slam my besties. what could be better? have you bought your tickets yet? rumor has it that they won't be for sale much longer… go get 'em here!

i added one more yellow and gray wreath to sugar money. those are my favorite colors, ya heard.

have yourselves a lovely weekend!

  1. lol what the heck. i literally LOL when I read your posts. I laugh more in amazement at the things that you allow to escape from those Christian perfect-mother lips. I swear, you need to start a stand-up show or something and just talk about your everyday life.

    Oh and the battery thing- DIED laughing. So funny.

  3. I'm cracking up about the battery chapstick! Did you "pull the cap off" and everything? heehee : )

    & apple juice... who knew?? That sounds horrible. But I laughed. (with you.) (of course.)

    hope you're enjoying your sweetie being home : )

  4. your wreaths are just so gorgeous. i had a similar idea for a wreath in mind, but i never got around to making it. i doubt they would have turned out as perfect as yours are, though!!

  7. I still can't even believe I'm going to Blog Sugar! So does this mean you aren't going to tell us how to squeeze an apple? I'm wondering if it compares to the diarrhea Nathan has after his swim lessons..."try not to drink all the pool water"

  8. Love grey & yellow!

    Good call on the apple juice! Funny how we figure these things out on our own sometimes, eh? (sorry, Canadian... had to sleep my "eh" in there somewhere!)

    And the battery thing made me giggle... I've been known to do something like that!

    Happy Mother's Day

  15. oh - the lawn mower situation. I've been a home owner for almost 2 years and have yet to buy one. So that is actually on my 'to do' list for the weekend and I guess this gal will be mowing her own yard from now on out! I can't say I'm looking forward to it!

    i love the random post today. especially the battery story. sounds like something i'd do.

  17. I'm totally cracking up over here! You are a riot! My posts that don't have a title are cleverly labeled "untitled"! Have many of those! The apple juice thing KILLS me.....happened to Maddox last week. First thing my mom says, "have you given him anything new to drink?" Genius! Apple juice diarrhea = dis.gus.ting! Hey...at least you know what to do if they're ever constipated!

    The grey & yellow wreath is divine!

  21. i thought i actually was smelling the diarrhea for a minute. i mean, i was totally gagging and everything, and then i realized it was because of the little girl standing next to me. watch out for watermelon, too. apparently, it's just as awesome for small people as fresh squeezed apple juice.
