Criss Angel and Skinny Jeans

1. My friend Marianne came for a visit this morning with her cuties Isaac and Chloe. It's interesting to see how boys (other than our own) are only vaguely interested in Mina for a few seconds, but Coco stared at her the whole time and rarely left her side. She also wanted to pet her and hold her and swing her. She kept saying "Baby, wake up." adorable
2. We FINALLY bought a queen sized bed today! It's been in discussion for years now. We have been surviving with a full but today we moved up. We also got a new sofa and loveseat. They'll be delivered tomorrow so I'll post pics then. Thanks again goes to the wonderful Aunt Catherine.
3. I ordered two pairs of skinny jeans from American Eagle which arrived today. They fit and miraculously I actually feel skinny in them.
4. Lucas went to his friend Julio's birthday party today. Julio dresses like a hipster goth, which at age 7 is super cute. His mom said he worships Criss Angel. That is freaking precious despite Criss Angel being a total tool.
5. I bought subscriptions to Martha Stewart Living and Real Simple magazine. I am straight up 35 years old now.

5 Things A Day

Starting today...

1. Bill's Aunt Catherine is here and she's been amazingly helpful with the boys.
2. Mina and I were up together last night for 3 hours. I was tired today but it was such a special time to just stare at each other and smile while everyone else was sleeping.
3. Aunt Catherine bought us a memory foam queen mattress. Now I just need to find a bed frame I like. (also she is awesome!)
4. Mina's doctor's appt went great today. She weighs 6lb 2oz so she has increased her weight by 11oz in the last week and is now above her birth weight. A triumph when you're this tiny!
5. Bill started college again this week. I'm super proud of him for taking this on and going after something new at age 35.
