Yesterday I asked if it would be weird if I posted everyday. At the same time. Kinda like a schedule. Which I am notoriously terrible at. And most of you said YES. I even got emphatic emails. Which of course it does flatter me and make me feel special and all those fuzzy emotions but also scares me a little. I’m gonna need you to agree to forgive me. I already know I will fail you. I know myself and a time keeper I am not. BUT I am gonna start next week posting at 10am. It’s gonna be a thing. Just be prepared. This week will still be by the seat of my pants, but it’ll be like the binge before the diet….or maybe the diet before the binge? That analogy doesn’t make a whole lot of sense but whatevs.
Today I am just sharing some snippets of my life…
Took photos of William’s baseball team. I’ve done it a few times now and this time I love the fence vibe. It’s one that I feel like I could recreate when he is bigger. And that shadow on his face gets all the heart eyes. And also his little attitude here is totally fake. He never acts this way to me. I’m the love of his life right now and I eat it up! He wrote me a note the other day and it said “Dear Katie, Will you marry me? Love William.” and then it had a picture of a rainbow. And sometimes he quotes Little Rascals before bed and says I am the skunk between his toes 🙂 And then he says he can’t say he hates me because he loves me. And I melt 🙂
Side note on baseball right now….anyone else out there feeling like rec leagues aren’t teaching good sportsmanship as much as they should? At the risk of sounding like a grandmother who walked to and from school and it was uphill both ways with no shoes and in three feet of snow….I just wish there was more of that emphasis in our community. Like an entire practice devoted to teaching them the basics….taking a knee when someone gets hurt, giving high fives to people that do well, learning to say congratulations and you got me this time. I am not in the camp of “everyone is a winner” but I’m also not in the camp of “winning is everything”. Just a thought.
Took my camera into Home Depot during a supply run….the results were worth it.
Max giving kisses until he didn’t feel like it anymore. Very opinionated that one.
Max blowing on my coffee. He thinks he is in charge of pushing the button on the Keurig and using the stir stick to mix in the creamer and also the blowing. It’s his job…don’t think about taking it away from him or you risk his wrath. His tiny little throw himself on the ground wrath that usually involves a very cute pouty lip and followed up with a sly little smile and a head butt.
Blue Steel. Duck Lips. Mom stop talking about me.
Yes, we need two buggies at Home Depot. It’s usually three at other stores….one to hold two kids, one to hold the other two, and one for actual purchases. Don’t mess with the Bower train. We will run you over. Seriously though…where are we gonna fit another kid?!
camera. light. shadows.
Did I tell you that LJ is like REALLY verbal? I mentioned that right? It always surprises me….just because it’s full conversations.
Our couch is falling apart. The rug in here (and the office one and the dining room one) has dog marks all over it. I’m thinking of getting this steamer. Any thoughts? No don’t share your thoughts about how I’m awful at getting the dog outside in time….he just is a stinker that refuses to do what I say.
The other photos I had wanted to post won’t rotate. So I guess I’ll just throw them in next time.
In other news…it’s 85 degrees in Georgia today. I need a pool. And someone to take care of the pool. And one of those covers so that kids can’t possibly drown in said pool. And possibly a virgin daiquiri maker. hmmm….that sounds nice. Also….I ordered a console from Wayfair like a month ago and it’s still not here. WAH! I just want to show you this finished space and that console is the missing final touch! Just wait till you see the art and our new chairs. They are so comfy and you will want to cuddle me in them.
And the lights for our bathroom makeover are backordered till June…so I’m hunting new lights. Suggestions? BUT today we got great news because we wanted a new vanity top of marble and the super awesome peeps over at a local countertop and cabinet place – A Polished Finish (it’s literally across the street from us in Loganville) found a perfect remnant and we can get the whole thing cut and installed for $200. STEAL. And I found my box of maternity pants which ya know…makes me happy anytime I get to have a stretchy waistband. A waist is a terrible thing to mind 🙂 Speaking of which….it’s not a good idea to eat an entire thing of Ben & Jerry’s New York Super Fudge Chunk. Public service announcement for you. It’s basically 1200 calories of amazingness followed by 1200 degrees of regret. Even my stretchy pants are not happy with that decision.
Also – this week was Sherry’s birthday…so if you didn’t say happy birthday to her….go there now and say Haps Bdays. She is almost in her 20’s now 🙂
