Random List

~I've been working on Lily's first birthday planning and last Friday I scored a BIG deal for her pictures and smashcake pictures too!!  You'll just have to wait and see... ;)  But, it was SUCH a bargain!! $10.00 for EXACTLY what I was looking for.  Bargain and just what I wanted = happy mama!

~Andrew was gone all last weekend on a Scout camping trip--his first official as a Boy Scout. The first time ever away without at least one family member other than a sleepover at a friend's house.  He had a blast! I may or may not have cried a little on the way home from dropping him off.

~George and I have been decluttering. It's amazing the mass of paperwork collected. It's been awesome to dump it.

~My mom is coming to visit soon! Yay!! Can't wait to see her. She's bringing a surprise. :)
Last time she was here Lily looked like this:

~As frustrating as some of the bureaucracy of this city makes me and how antiquated some people and things are makes me crazy, I lovelovelove the touristy stuff in Pittsburgh. The history, the landmarks, just the feel of the city.  I always love when someone visits so we can engage in more of the touristy stuff. :)

~This is my most reflective time of year, as the anniversary of my dad's death approaches.

~My baby is growing wayyyyyyyyyyyyy too quickly! Even Daddy said to her he wished she was a squishy little baby still. We've still got one more in us. ;)

~It is 52 degrees right now. We had to turn the furnace on last night.  It is May 17.  It's either cold or hot. No in between. Summer is going to be brutal.  I'm over the rain too. Nonstop.

~The teething continues...chewing, drooling, runny nose.  Sleep has seemed to calm down, although I know I just jinxed it by writing that.

~I will never understand people who cause upheaval just for the sake of doing it...especially to children.

~Laundry needs to do itself.

~I love that I'm always right. ;)  People are predictable.

Happy Tuesday!


  1. I love you and your random thoughts. :) I'm glad everyone is doing so well. Let me know when your stopping down for a visit. I miss you.

  2. i love your new layout! i can't wait to see those pics from her birthday party!

  3. I <3 your new blog look! A great deal for her birthday pics is wonderful :) I love taking pics and getting deals. Paying retail is for the birds, ha!

  4. $10 is a serious steal! I have a cousin that takes our pictures for free, but of course we actually have to buy the pictures even though I never bought the ones from last fall!

    That is such an adorable picture of your mom with Lily! It really is crazy how fast they grow!

  5. I hope you have a great visit with your mom! Hopefully the rain stops soon!
    I've been going through paperwork, too. It's been quite the process!
