This picture because it makes me laugh


Afternoon naps.  Best thing in the world.  Now if only I could convince the eldest 3 of this fact . . .

Candy Corn Oreos. Kinda like the birthday ones, more like the regular golden ones, they’re awesome.

Speaking of food, Haagen Daas Butter Pecan ice cream is the best kind of mid-night snack.  This is why my clothes don’t fit.

And speaking of clothes, Jac’s my favorite for ordering long sleeved things for this final stretch.  Old Navy Maternity scoop neck tees are lovely.

Doctor Who, season 2.  I’ve been a sci-fi fan from an early age thanks to Papa Chris so the 10th Doctor’s sense of humor and the crazy aliens are right up my alley.  (Also up my alley, how my husband ques up a show and will watch it with me just because I like it.  It’s not on his fave list.)

Checking things off my to-do list.  Feels so good.

I have a friend who makes LEGO rosaries.  LEGO! They are completely necessary as stocking stuffers for the boys this year.  If you live locally, they are available at the Mustard Seed Catholic Bookstore downtown.  If you are far away, I can get you her contact info.  She does custom orders!  Good stuff.

Community Theater.  Namely, Black Hills Community Theater and their Les Miserables production.  Coming soon: Pirates of Penzance and The Miracle Worker.

Garnier Fructis Anti-Frizz Serum.  It smells amazing,really does calm The Frizz (it’s an entity) and makes a great beard oil.  Fr. C. reports that it’s not so good as hand soap though.

Reading “Love is a Choice” by Drs. Hamfelt, Minirth, and Meier.  Written about co-dependency from a Christian perspective, it’s a winner.

World Market’s Dulce de Leche White Hot Cocoa mix.  When it got cold last week, I busted it out because last fall, remember, there was no dairy for me.  Bring it on this year, baby! Alas, there are no World Markets within spitting distance of us so it will be rationed.  It makes it that much better.

I love the blog Under the Sycamore. Ashley is a Jesus loving, faith living, homeschooling mom of 5 who is super crafty and muy artistico with a camera.  Her blog always lifts my spirits.

When I can finally take my neoprene belly bands off at the end of the day.  Best. Feeling. Ever.

Gemma’s lisp.  Jac taught her how to say ‘Sasquatch’ tonight just so we could hear it.  Sweetest thing all day.

Any favorites from you I should know about?
