Attention Book Club

Attention book club members, I have finished the book. In fact, I finished it more than a month before the scheduled book club date. I know all those polite reminders that "you have enough time to get the book finished" have been directed at me!

To my other two dedicated readers, sorry to bore you with the news.

Easter Highlights

Thanks for all the comments on the last post. Yes, my 11.5 month son is over 27 pounds! Lets just say Derek and I are always complaining about sore backs. It is a good thing that he has started walking, he's up to 10 steps. I guess we should get around to baby proofing...

And here are the highlights from Easter. I expect comments on my expert taste in picking out his Easter attire. Another mom that deserves props, Pam with Payt's awesome argyle ensemble!

Weekend Update

  • I've arrived! Yesterday I applied a full face of makeup using one arm and holding a 27+ pound child in the other. The only flub, Van did manage to grab the mascara wand.
  • I'm in the early planning mode of Van's 1st Birthday Party. Here is the cake I'm going to make, because I ate one (or two or three) Hostess Cupcakes every day throughout my pregnancy.
  • March Madness is much less stressful when you forget to fill out a bracket. I have nothing to lose!
  • Spring is here, and I have a new white purse to prove it.
  • I'm currently very disinterested in the bathroom remodel project that Derek and I have had on the schedule for this weekend. He is working hard in the bathroom, I'm working on my blog.
  • I'm very proud of Jessica and her new love of asparagus.
  • Van loves his godparents.
  • I love Nasonex. I'm finally getting over this four month sinus infection.
  • Stay tuned for Easter pictures.

Confessions of a Twenty-something Peep Addict

I'm about to admit something so revealing that I fully expect my friends to treat me differently after reading this post.

I love Marshmallow Peeps. And if that isn't weird enough, my favorite time to eat them is when the package has been open for more than a week and they are a little stale and hard to chew. Ewww! I'm gross!

I wonder if there are any more Peeps left...

Bartlesville Baby

We have been on the road. Check us out at the legendary Price Tower in Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
