Discovering me … one stitch at a time

The Basics

Helloooo Friday!

Usually I want life to slow down, but this week I’m glad that it sped up! Wahooooo! It’s Friday!!!

Next week is a big launch-to-do-of sorts at work so stress is high and tempers are flaring. My response is to close my office door and hide behind a giant computer screen. It works for the most part except when people look in the little window next to the door and do the “can I come in” mime and then come in anyway. What is up with that?!

Tom is finally feeling better. Praise the gods! I hope I didn’t just jinx things by saying that.

Random fun fact: In his heyday, Tom was invited to try out for the Phillies(!!!). For various reasons, he didn’t end up with a glamorous career in professional sports. I am glad because 1. We never would have met, and 2. He wouldn’t be spending his evenings playing baseball in the backyard with these 2 rascals. And seriously, is there anything cuter than that?

This weekend promises to be filled with kid stuff (appointments, scouts, inaugural outdoors (poo) club meeting) but I’m hoping to find some time for Halloweening (apple picking, pumpkin patch, important costume discussions). A mother’s work is never done!

Last night, I lit not one, but TWO, vanilla candles and the house smelled so homey and bakey and yummy. I realize this is Pumpkin Spice and/or Cinnamon candle season, but sometimes you just have to go with the basics.

Enjoy your weekend!


Bad vs. Good

    Vanilla candles are my favourite! The Phillies(!!!!) Wowie! Well, I’m glad you two met and had two cuties of your own. Isn’t it sweet when the hubs teaches them things? My John is a tennis player, and it’s been lovely watching him with Nicholas.

  2. Tom isn’t their biological dad, so I feel super thankful for his relationship with the boys and the nutty little family we have created together.

    Tennis! Now that’s actually an interesting sport to watch!

I love to hear from you!
