Been in a bit of a bloggy slump lately, here's my exercise to get the gears turning again. A list. The ever-useful list. I shall make one this instant.


-Today was a happy day. A visit with two of my favorite ladies, some lazy surfing on the internet during naptime, an evening stroll with my little boy through the retail district (hand holding, smoothie sipping, and kitty cat watching at the pet store), and some way past bedtime wrestling and silliness in the living room with Daddy.
-I love fall. The cooler weather is simply refreshing. It makes me want to stay home, bake, and spruce up the house. And take long walks. Deep breaths.
-Lately, this ever-changing role as Momma has me turning the mirror on myself. I'm trying to strengthen my own character for the sake of his. Finally figuring out that if he is to be strong, I have to be as well.
-I love all of the talking with Cooper these days. His vocabulary is expanding by leaps and bounds. I love knowing that he can understand me and he can tell me what he's thinking about.
-One of my favorite things that you said a few months ago that I consider your first sentance, "I hear something. A noise." Spoken while I was trying to get you to please go to sleep. :) I had to smile.
-Crossing my fingers that the sickness stays out of our house for at least a few weeks. We've been bogged down with viruses for weeks now. Darn that preschool.
-Cooper is *starting* to be okay at pre-k now. Part of me wishes he still cried all day so I could take him out and keep him home with me. Part of me likes the time apart for him to learn from others and me to accomplish a few to do's.
-I cut my hair short.
-I'm painting the upstairs bathroom and we are finally headed down the road of finishing the whole room. It's been waaaaaaay too long. Can't wait to take my first shower in there and brush my teeth in the new sinks....aahhh.
-Sadiebug is settling in to our family nicely. Cooper adores her. She needs TWO walks a day. :)
-Cooper is going to be a Triceratops for Halloween. Can't wait til the costume arrives this week.
-What shall I be for Halloween? What will you be for Halloween?

Sadie shall be a punkin.

Chocolate cookie dough face, garage sale jacket. Love you baby.

Happy fall everyone!


  1. you have so been missed friend...i think of you often and wish you happy thoughts :)

    and the new hair in the profile pic?? LOVING IT!!

    happy fall day friend :)

  2. My list for you:
    1. I'm assuming the new haircut is the one in the profile pic...which is AWESOME! I want you to cut my hair short. It's looking rather frumpy these days, and while I trust people here to trim it, I don't trust them to do anything beyond that.
    2. Cooper gets cuter every post.
    3. If you figure out a halloween costume, let me know. Seeing as I have no creative ability, I can't think of one for myself...at least not one I can find the supplies for here in Taiwan.
    4. I miss you!!
    5. Yay for lists!

  3. wow...this resonated with me...If he is to be strong, I have to be as well. Good point..one I needed to hear.
    love your new cut. I still have the same boring butt-cut I've had since 5th grade. no guts, no glory.
    copper is smashingly cute. i'd so love to get my camera on him!
    also, who is the newborn in header? doesn't it seem impossible (yet like yesterday) that he was so small?
