Last day

Day 30 - three wonderful things that happened this month

1. President Obama was re-elected. Best thing ever.

2. Bill's family came to visit. His grandmother got to hold Mina which was a really sweet thing to watch. She's the first girl in this family since Aunt Jennifer was born 50 years ago.

3. The boys won an Angry Birds basket at the school fundraiser. It may seem like a silly thing but Lucas had mentioned before that we never win anything. Sometimes it's just nice when it feels like the Universe hears you.

Days 27-29

Day 27 - a silly self-portrait
I take hideous self portraits of myself almost every day. Jennie and I send them back and forth randomly throughout the week. So I have oodles but I'll leave you with the gem below when I got Bill involved with my shenanigans.

Day 28 - a skill i'd like to learn
I can sew pretty well by hand and do really basic stuff on a sewing machine. But I'd like to be able to sew actual clothes for Mina. I see the cutest stuff online from brands like Misha Lulu and I want to learn how to do that. It doesn't look that complicated. It's just adorable fabric with sweet embellishments. Maybe I should just take some sewing classes and get myself a newer machine.

Day 29 - something i never tire of
Friends. The show. I could turn it on at any time of day, any episode, and I will watch it. If it was on TV 24-7 I couldn't turn it off. IT Crowd is another show I can watch like this. Actually I feel like watching IT Crowd right now...

Days 25 & 26

Day 25 - the contents of my purse
I don't carry a purse when I have a baby. So here are the contents of my diaper bag - bedecked in buttons and tchotchkes: gum, cough drops, lotion, angry birds band-aids, Hello Kitty wallet, coupons, Target receipts, diapers, Vaseline lip therapy, change of clothes for Mina, headband, extra socks, immunization record, wipes, puzzle books, ibuprofen, nursing pads, keys and sunglasses.

Day 26 - something i'm looking forward to
I'm looking forward to the awards assembly at school on Friday. Holden is getting his Honor Roll certificate.
