A little cheese with that whine?

So, I've been dealing with lots of this lately...

Although, I actually adore this photo because I think the expression matches the shirt so well. Big thanks to Zoe for that fabulous shirt! Girl, how could your birthday gift for Luka be better than anything I bought him? Seriously though, I LOVE it! I'm not so sure what Luka thinks of it, though. I'm not sure if it's the shirt that's making him cry there, or the fact that he's the only boy in a house full of females. Don't worry little buddy...Daddy will be home soon. Although, you'll still be outnumbered once Sake comes home to live with us. And, Hazel is hell-bent on having a baby sister. Sorry little lady, I think we've closed up shop in that department!

So, that's the whine. Here's the cheese...

*Hazel singing along to The Beatles' "Revolution" and "I Wanna' Hold Your Hand" during our weekend car rides. Too cute!

*Got a couple of lovely cards and care packages from some very special bloggy friends

*Discussed Bryan's "fantasy homecoming." Get your minds out of the gutter! It's an exercise they are encouraged to do with their families so that there are no disappointments, and everything gets off on the right foot. We've planned our first dinner, what movie we're going to watch, even what Bryan would like for me to wear when I pick him up. Seriously, honey...a sundress?!? You know I don't do dresses! I guess I can make an exception in this case, though. I'd really like to have this:

However, at $298...I think not. Thank you, Anthropologie, for sending me your catalogs with your obscenely over-priced merchandise that I spend hours drooling over, but could never have. Thanks a lot.

It was such a sunny, warm and beautiful weekend here...

Although, we really didn't get out much to enjoy it. Boo. There's just so much to be done before we leave for the beach on Wednesday! That, and I have a to-do list about a mile long to get through before Bryan comes home. I did get quite a few things ticked off.

*Spring cleaning: Deep-cleaned almost all of the master bath (will finish tomorrow), deep-cleaned half the car (hey, I could only get half done during nap time...will finish that tomorrow too)

*Did about 10 loads of laundry

*Shampooed the couch cusions, flipped them all

*Packed ALMOST everything for our trip to the beach

*Finally got around to making these little lovelies from the knitted wine bags that Gina picked up for me back at Christmas time:

And, I am finally, FINALLY getting caught up on my blog reading. I am in the process of getting my Bloglines set up. I've known that they have been around for a while. I've just been too lazy to look into it. Now, I'm about half-way through my list of regular reads. If I haven't gotten around to you yet, I hope to be caught up by tomorrow night! :0)

I hope everyone's week is off to a great start! I can't believe it's already March! Crazy!

Did you edit it at all.. it has some really nice fushia & teal colors in it, brilliant! I hope you and your dh have a fantastic first night/day together :) and fun at the beach. I miss beaches!

Lizee said...

i love anthroplogie clothes...but its so freakin pricy :/

dani j. said...

that face with that shirt is just priceless, what a doll!

I bet you're gonna look awesome in a sundress! That anthro. dress is amazing... but we all know I'm not getting anything from there anytime soon! ;)

I love bloglines, it's made blogging so much easier, there's been a few kinks here and there but really, it's fab.

What you did with those wine bags is awesome, you're like, a kickass Martha Stewart with all your projects!

THANK YOU a million times for your positive comments about my money stuff - made my day!

You have been a busy girl! I know you have so many great things to look forward to! I hope your trip tomorrow is good...we are suppose to have some terrible weather today down here,but usually when that happens it warms yay for you with warm weather for the beach. Try wet seal or forever 21 for a cute dress to welcome the hubs home! Love the pic of you and your little one. I want to scrap that pic of you! Can I? Love the little one's shirt, too! Ok, have a safe and fun trip!

xx, Amber
