sunday. skylar and i surprised dad with homemade lasagna and the tv on the golf channel when he got home from work. it's the little things.

monday. i managed to put on a pair of black pants that hadn't fit me in over a year. i did my celebration dance (you know the one) and then looked out the window to see neighbors walking their dog and staring right at me. awesome/mortifying moment.

tuesday. kristen stewart cheats on robert pattinson. all down time at work is now spend reading about this situation and reporting to my girlfriends any updates which I am sure they are THRILLED to be receiving every five minutes.

wednesday.  heartwarming conversations with two of our best friends asking them to by skylar's godparents. beautiful moments.

thursday.  my nana showed up at my house with my fifteen year old cousin. they both had just gotten their ears double pierced and nana had purchased herself a hello kitty sweater. gotta keep em young, y'all.

friday. it's 7am and i am alone in the house for what feels like the first time ever. tonight husband is cooking his really yummy chicken dish and our snuggle up on the couch and watch the opening ceremonies of the olympics. have a great weekend!

i think it's okay if on tuesdays...

all you do is stare at your office wall and be completely unproductive.

sidenote: tuesday is also known as "textual tuesday" by my friend rebes.
(which i am fully embracing and i suggest you do as well)

..and yes, that is a bottle of hand sanitizer. complete germaphobe.

oh hey thanks girls....

{you can find my besties here}

thanks for sending me this pic of the view from your suite in your fabulous hotel in ft lauderdale, while you lounge poolside and soak in the sun while having hours of girl talk and more martinis than i can dream about. 

i'll just keep sitting here on my couch, eating a jar of cookie butter, changing diapers, having a keeping up with the kardashians marathon and wishing i could do it all.

things i never did until you came along...

{skylar, two months}

cared about traditions

needed a night light to sleep

knew what a binky was
{still am a little unclear}

ate so many meals standing up  

realized how awesome sound machines are

thought so much about my boobs

thought so much about doing a situp
{really need to get on that}

cried out of concern

sanitized um, everything

and for the record...i love every crazy moment of it.
