Nerd love. Gotta love it. Andrew and I are writing down our love story, because Grace made a link-up and that's impetus enough for me! Well, I'm writing it and he's adding snarky commentary. Story of our relationship :P
Anyway, Part I is up and it's gonna be a long one, folks - we were together for 6 years before we got married! Also I'm incapable of writing anything remotely brief.
While looking through old pictures of us, I found one of me:
And one of Andrew:
John Paul is SO excited for his birthday. He turns 4 on Monday and we're having his party on Sunday, and he absolutely can't wait!
He tells me several times a day, "I'm almost 4!"
I told him he was my favorite 3-year-old and he said, "Um, I'm almost 4..."
|This is how excited he looks all day long!|
I asked him what he wanted from Costco for his party and he said, "A birthday cake!"
"You can have anything you want to eat, John Paul!" Thinking he would choose chips or brownie bites or something...
"KALE!" He exclaimed, "It's salty! Make kale chips!"
Sadly, they didn't have any of the pre-cut kale so... No dice. Not baking him crispy flakes of death (seriously that stuff is nasty...)
My homework assignment for this weekend is to figure out how to do a link-up so you can all show off your most successful (or least successful) pants-free outfits, or just share your thoughts on your mom wardrobe, or really anything related to clothing... I'm not picky!
Here's what I wore this week:
|And here's this morning - day 12! Although I'm not sure if the picture I posted on facebook is better or not...|
Our garden continues to grow! No pictures, but the pear tomatoes have started growing, peppers have started their buds, as has the zucchini, strawberries may yield a modest harvest, pole beans are growing waaaay higher than we thought they would...
I bought a variety pack of basil seeds and am now figuring out what the different varieties are - what does one do with cinnamon basil? I really just bought the variety pack because I wanted lemon basil AND regular basil...
Do you use Amazon affiliates? I order a LOT of things from Amazon, and I've been trying to click on affiliate links through mom blogs every time I order so that someone else gets a percentage of what I purchase. But I forget who I've clicked and who I haven't! So if you use Amazon affiliates, leave a link in the comments and I'll make my purchases in order of the comments left :)
And if you want to help us out (we're saving up for new convertible car seats for the twins, which is EXPENSIVE, yeesh!), click my Amazon link before you make a purchase and I think I make like, 4% of your purchase - so if you buy a $10 book, I make 40 cents! Woohoo!
Also, if you want to Join Amazon Prime - Watch Over 40,000 Movies you can click through that link and I make $2! Their selection of streaming videos has improved GREATLY, and I'm honestly not sure we even need to keep Netflix around because Amazon Prime has so much... And it's cheaper monthly than Netflix, plus you get the free 2-day shipping! Anyway, that link gives you a 30-day trial, so give it a try or don't :)
