this weekend.

got off to a really great start. an evening trip to the park on friday then book reading. lots of juicing saturday. plus a quick fishing trip to the beach house that night. THEN some time spent in the freezing sand and surprising clear corpus water on sunday morning. we're now polishing off our weekend with bike rides, more juicing, napping, knitting and really good dinner :) I seriously couldn't ask for a better two days!

2014

getting a start on this new year by watching lots of knitting videos on youtube. and visited purl's website and ordered myself a learn to knit kit.
still haven't made it to the gym or managed to slide on my running shoes (it's been an entire week and a half since my last workout) but i did make a healthy quinoa salad to keep in the fridge for the week, and roasted some detoxifying cauliflower. AND i juiced! now i just need to start on all of my other "resolutions" for the year.
we've reached a point that i think two kids might be enough for us so i'm starting to think about MY life and who I want to be beyond my kids and my husband. like knitting! i've always wanted to learn and have made measly efforts in the past to get started but i've never actually made anything. which leads me to another resolution: following through. doing things that i say i'm going to do. making more time for friends and DOING more for them. and FAMILY. i need to DO more for them too, not just hang around all the time. i want to LISTEN better and talk better too. talk about things with real substance….like those long talks you used to have in college that made you feel like you were really making or going to make a difference. i need more of those. and i just need to be productive. quit cleaning and "straightening up" and just PLAY with my kiddos. and read books!!! when did i quit reading? i can barely get through a page a night in my latest novel…need to work on that.
and although there were some really REALLY great things that happened in 2013, like, hello! amadeus was born!!! i can't say that i'm not happy to see it go and start with a new one. and since amadeus' birth was by far the highlight of my year, that's the picture we're saying goodbye with.


HAPPY NEW YEAR!

because.

it's been a really ( REALLY ) long time. and i sort of want to get back into the whole blogging thing. even if i haven't been up to anything super productive (other than raising a child, but you know?).

currently we're at twenty-two weeks with number two. this pregnancy hasn't been entirely different from the first. i feel similar, i haven't gotten HUGE yet and that amazing feeling you get each time you feel the babe move still hasn't faded. but i find myself not focusing on the pregnancy like i did with M. obviously i'm a little busier than i was the first time around but i think i'm going to start dipping back into my pregnancy books again and put the parenting books on the shelf for a while.

but here are some pictures of what we've been up to lately. m is cracking us UP! all day every day. walking around the house, babe in hand, saying "thAnks", giving her little plastic baby baths every night, feeding her at supper time.... it's just too much. but it's a lot of fun.





when i was editing these pictures (and trust me, i planned on posting a lot more) i noticed a bit of a trend in M's life these days. she likes to eat. she loves to paint. and, one that i had taken considerable note of, she likes glasses, which is why we just ordered these.

happy thursday!!! hope everyone has great plans for the weekend...ours will probably involve lots of play outside and around the house.
