I almost never post anything on Sundays, because really, who has the time for such leisure activities on a Sunday? Especially with the church and the napping and the accomplishing that is supposed to occur on a Sunday. But since I committed to every day of November, that will unfortunately include 4 Sundays, so I need to get with the program.
My friend Tiffany has a tradition of doing “Five for Fridays” and I think it is a great idea! It’s a perfect way to share a few little snippets of her life that are worth sharing, but perhaps too small for an entire blog post to be dedicated to just one. I’ve been sitting here thinking how convenient it would be if today was Friday, because I’ve been wanting to do this. Therefore I’m officially starting the Sunday Six to get me through the month of November, so I can blog quickly and get back to those important Sunday activities.
(On a side note, if you haven’t seen Tiffany’s blog before you have to see it here. It’s really great, she has adorable kids, great pictures, and you must check the left sidebar for links to her son’s birthday party and a refinished wall nook in her house. She is so creative and these projects, among others, turned out amazingly!)
Anyway, to the list
1.)This coffee creamer is helping me bring in the season with cheer. It is not quite the same as a peppermint mocha from Starbucks, but it is so close, especially with the Starbucks espresso that we brew around here.
2.) Last week I turned 29. This week my sister turns 20. In a few weeks my sister-in-law will turn 26, and a week later my other sister-in-law will turn 20. For 11 months we will all share our 20s together.
3.) People often tell me that Jayce has “the best expressions” or some variation of that comment. I know that what they really mean is that he has very grown up expressions, or more accurately, the expressions of a grumpy old man. I can’t really deny it.
4.) My sister-in-law Melanie (the almost 26 year old) and her husband Matt recently announced that they are pregnant. We are so excited for them, congrats guys!
5.) The other morning Jayce offered his dad a bite of his apple, and when Chris refused, Jayce got mad and threw the apple across the room. He got in trouble for this, which made him mad, so while he was still crying he picked up a big popcorn tin, lifted it up over his head WWF style and threw it across the room as well. He got in trouble again, but we were laughing into our hands.
6.) I have been seeing this picture all week on the internet which is both horrifying but hilarious. It is the “convenient solution for active females to use the bathroom outdoors” or something like that. If interested, read here.
7.) We took the plunge last week and got Jayce the flu and H1N1 shots at the local Health Center. I loaded up the diaper bag with a variety of snacks and games and prepared to stand in a long line, but when we arrived we were literally the only ones there other than the staff. We were in and out in 10 minutes. Sometimes it pays to live in a small town.
