It’s my birthday! Β The big Three Three. I’m making Scott take me out to lunch today where I intend to drink a bloody mary and eat a delicious cheeseburger.

I also intend on smiling. A lot. And laughing, and relaxing, and loving, and taking it easy. No fanfare needed, no party, no fancy dinners.

It’s cool. I like it this way.

Here are a few things that are making me happy today.

Kendall got to pick a prize from the class treasure box yesterday for good behavior, and he chose this ring for me! He ran out of school with this in one hand, and a yellow dandelion in the other and handed them both to me with such gusto he almost fell over. “For you, mom! I got it just for you!” Soo… that’s the cutest ever.

This Brian Williams rap from The Tonight Show. Because. Just watch.

Truly, I’m just happy Jimmy Fallon is on an entire hour earlier now. This NPR piece on Fallon’s joy and the joy he brings to others is spot on. Yes. More joy!

This baby meme. OMG. Please don’t hate me for dying laughing at this one. (See more here.)


My new Facebook page cover image. This is just a little peek at my new design and re-branding to come. I’m working with a couple great designers on sprucing up the place. Can’t wait!


And to celebrate, I’m also offering a 30% off ad sale for all banner ad spaces on my blog! Use the code BIRTHDAYBABY and check out via my Passionfruit store at this link-

Yay mid-thirties! Let’s do this.

  • I always keep teething oil in my bag these days. He has FOUR top teeth trying to come through. 😫I try not to stick dirty fingers in his mouth, especially right after I pump gas. 🀒So I also keep some @handzies soap and water wipes with me. #inmypurse
  • On our way to get the other three. We really loved spoiling Wallace this week and living that one baby life for a bit. I think he's bored of us now, though.
  • So thankful for my mom who has the energy and patience to not only watch these three but to take them to the beach all by herself. Like, that's not even something I'd attempt. She's such a badass.
  • Oh yes we did turn this #joovyspoon into a #stlblues mobile! I'm in love with the idea of personalizing one of our fav baby things this way! Must confess it was Scott's idea, but I ran with it and came up with some other ideas in today's blog post. PLUS!!! @joovy is giving away one Spoon walker (US only). Link in bio!
  • Managed to distract him from his fever for a bit with some snacks and a spoon in the Nook highchair @joovy sent. It folds up super compact so I'm hopeful it will work well in the RV. #joovynook
  • Of course he'd get his first fever the week we sent the other three to NaNa's and planned to be super productive. #babydontcare we have a house to sell. Snuggles come first. ❀
  • Arlo grew a little.
  • Another day, another house, another nap. Nothing, not even NaNa, can keep him from his love for sleep from 3-5 pm. #loloyolo
