working under pressure

this week and last week have been c.r.a.z.y. lots going on for us. i told bug that it feels like the days when i was in college and had a million balls in the air. lots of deadlines ahead, but i know i'll make it. all i can say: i owe it all to my "shot" of dr. pepper every afternoon. and who are we kidding? i am happier when i am crazy busy anyway.

a brief highlight (of all my fun projects):
preparing for baby showers, rs activities, yw stuff (never-ending), mister b's blessing (yep, he still isn't blessed yet), my mom's b-day, reading my book-club book, squeezing in olympic time, caring for my 3 and 1/2 month old, chasing my 2 year old, rummaging through my favorite clothing store's warehouse sale, putting a recipe project together, making sure miss a has ample cousin time, a few meetings here and there, helping my sis move, giving miss a's hair a trim, another tee-shirt refashion i have been dying to try...and then there's the not fun list we all do every week.

i do have to share the best of the best from last week. a friend of ours took pictures of miss a and mister b with their great grandma. here is a sneak peak of some of my favs. jen is so talented, and i am loving these priceless gems. she has my 100% stamp of approval/satisfaction. find her & her talents here and here.
love it. miss a is actually named after this sweet and most loving grandma. i wanted pictures of the 2 of them together so that miss a can try to live up to the amazing person & legacy her great-grandma is.

okay. time to mail out the thank you cards miss a just scribbled her drawings all over before our mailman comes.


  1. Those photos turned out so fun! I'm glad I made it on your "fun" vs. "un-fun" list... I'm thinking, though, that we might have to eliminate something you're helping me with so your list is less hectic...

  2. What beautiful pictures. I love Grandma. She looks great. Sounds crazy busy at your house too.

  3. Hello, I just found your new blog...glad you are public again. Looking forward to hearing more from you guys.

  4. Will you ever forgive me for adding "RS activities" to your growing to-do list?? Aren't VT supposed to make life easier for you - not harder? Failure.

    On another note - I'm dying to see the new t-shirt plan. please post. xoxo
