My Morning in Numbers

5 number of times I had to kiss my little guy to wake him up this morning.
2 different shirts I had to pull out of his closet because he didn't like the first one I picked. (Wonder where he gets that from???)
4 pairs of shoes I tried on with my outfit today because I just couldn't decide what mood I was in.
1 tiny slug we found on a stick outside between the back door and the car and had to take it to school to show our friends.
0 number of miles I had left on my gas gage on the highway on the way to work.
15 dollars of gas I put into my car, making me...
10 minutes late for work.

No, this picture doesn't have anything to do with this post. Pink flamingos just make me smile.
How was your morning?


  1. Sweet kisses to your little guy :)

  2. :) i love the simplicity of this post.

    (let us see a pic of the shoes you decided on!)


    my morning started out rough, but the afternoon proved to be much better! :)

  3. Snips and snails and puppy dog tails...little boys are all alike...mine is 17 and while we haven't taken a slug to school (that I know of), they never really grow out of it...precious post...

  4. I had a great morning as soon as I heard the weatherman say -NO RAIN! Woohoo! the sun is actually going to shine in KC today.

    Loved your post!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
