a side of sass

her favorite word is "no."
it's still more funny than cute.
it will pass.
and become completely un-cute.
but for now it's still cute.
except for brennan.
he gets the most upset when she says it.
b/c he's used to having her follow his every whim.
now he just gets mad and frustrated when she tells him no.
and wants to stand there and fight with her about it until she says yes.
which she won't.
b/c she's definitely a girl that knows what she wants and what she likes.
with a side of sass.
and a whole LOT of opinions.
it's REALLY funny.

spinach garage

my garage is broken.
i am sad.
but i now know how to manually open and close it.
i've always wondered.
have you ever wondered if kids really like spinach?
me too.
and now i know.
max does.
straight from the bowl.
she is going to turn into a vegetable.
with a sucker in one hand.
and spinage in the other.
seeing as i've done the same things with brennan and her i don't think i can take credit for it, but i guess i'll try.

52 bags {lent}

i just want to hide them in the pantry so i don't have to share with anyone.
the 18 oz bag might last me a week.
i'm seriously considering adding them to my year's supply of food storage.
i just think it would be hard to store 52 bags of them.
and not eat them all before easter.
especially in my pregnant and soon to be nursing state.
b/c if you've ever exclusively nursed a baby,
you know that you are eating for two when you're pregnant
{or NOT, but whatever, it's just fun to pretend},
but when you're nursing you get to eat for the entire block.
for an entire year.
AND lose weight.
at least that's how it works for me.
who needs black beans when you have a year's supply of pb eggs?
there's protein in pb eggs!
ok, maybe i need black beans,
but canned mushrooms are questionable.
i'd pick pb eggs over canned mushrooms every day of the week and twice on sunday.
except the sundays i need the canned mushrooms for baked spaghetti.
b/c i surely cannot put pb eggs in baked spaghetti.
but would i really even notice they were missing anyway?
the mushrooms, not the eggs.
i declare not.
pb eggs i would notice.
but not in baked spaghetti.
you get what i'm saying.
it's a good thing i'm not catholic anymore b/c i'd surely have to give them up for lent.
and i swear they'd taste better during lent.
pb eggs,
not canned mushrooms.
b/c everything i gave up during lent always tasted BETTER during lent.
something about the whole wanting what you can't have thing.
i think.
like fast sunday,
but for longer.
AND you don't get to just skip it when you're pregnant or nursing.
or call it quits around lunch.
now that's rough.
52 bags DOES seem a bit excessive though...

wrinkles and all {33 weeks}

i can still zip up my coat,
but it is a squeeze:)
if i don't eat with my plate on my tummy,
the food ends up there anyway.
i don't know why i fight it.
b/c i just end up with a lot of messy shirts.
i've been bribing max and brennan with starburst for all of my pregnancy needs this week.
it's working great.
they are the best listeners you've ever seen.
sean was "man nesting" in the garage this weekend.
i was beaming:)
when i do the dishes i have to stand sideways b/c if i stand facing toward the sink my arms don't reach far enough to get to the water and the dish soap.
it's pretty funny.
note to self: don't wear boots with heels anymore.
even if it's just for a few hours to church.
it makes it hard to walk the rest of the day,
and not where you think it would hurt.
now if i could just get rid of this head cold life would be perfect,
wrinkles and all.

heavy and wet

 heavy, wet snow.
that will all be gone by the middle of the week.
i could get used to this.
