Sunshine Sunday - shakes, art, and a fire

First of all, thank you SO, SO, SO much for your kind comments on Friday's post.  It's so nice to have that announcement out there and it made me so happy to read all your comments throughout the day.  It made feeling really sick a lot more bearable.  

While we haven't left the house a whole lot, I did take the kids to McDonald's the other day.  They've been troopers about being stuck at home so often.  One of the workers brought us a shake that was made my accident.  The boys were thrilled, so we got out three straws and had a party.  After a couple of sips Rex turned to me and said, "This is the life."  

Rex has seen me photograph is art, since we can't keep it all.  He decided to start doing that himself.  He had this giant witch (like almost as tall as me) that they made at school.  Since he couldn't get it all in one frame I have about 20 pictures of its different body parts on my phone now.  He cracks me up.

We've had SO much snow in the last two days and we've been home enjoying a fire.  We got well over a foot and it makes me happy to see it, but be inside staying warm.

The morning sickness never lets up, but I feel like I'm handling it a little better now that I'm really used to it.  It's the perfect challenge for someone who doesn't like to ask for help and who prides herself on getting a lot done in a day.  I'm learning.

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend.  Tomorrow starts Refashionista here!  I'm thrilled.  So even though I haven't been posting quite as much, you'll have 2 full weeks of awesome refashions to watch from some of my favorite bloggers.  I can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. That is the life. Hope your morning sickness lets up soon!!

  2. Sundays are one of my favorite days to read your blog. You have the cutest family. I just can't even tell you how thrilled I am for you!

    I'm a bit jealous of your snow. My 2 1/2 year old has been waking up watching The Snowman lately and is now begging me for snow. Ummm..., we live in Southern California, not likely to happen anytime soon!

    Hope you are feeling much better very soon!

  5. I have been checking in with your blog faithfully (and used a LOT of your idead at playgroups and different event-- they made me look like a ROCKSTAR!!)--- waiting and waiting for the news that you were pregnant. And I miss a couple of days-- and I missed your big announcement. I am so happy for you. As someone who spent 6 years riding the infertility roller-coaster before the birth of our first, I feel your pain. Now that we are trying (unsuccessfully, unfortunately!) for our third, you are giving me renewed hope. I'm so happy for you-- someone I've never met, but feel I sorta know. CONGRATS!!

  6. What a lovely post! The shake pic is soooo sweet :) Bummed bout the pregnancy sickness, but hang in there! It will all be sooo worth it! And I'm jealous of your fire. Here in Texas, just cold & windy....bleh!

  7. I am so happy for your pregnancy! Hooray!

  8. Milkshakes make life more fun. :)

    Have you heard of ArtKive? It's an app that I know for sure is available for iPhone. I downloaded it for free! You use it to snap pics of your kiddos' artwork then you can file it away in the app. You can label it and it becomes searchable, too. Very cool!

    Very excited for refashionista week!

  9. Congratulations!!! I was going to tell you that earlier but I was on my iPad and it was frustrating me sooo bad. And then I thought to myself, "self, just wait until you're on a real computer." And that time is now. So CONGRATULATIONS! Can't wait to hear what you're having. In 10 weeks or less. ;)

  10. i am sure you have heard a million suggestions but have you tried ginger tea or even ginger ale for some help with the morning/all day sickness ??

  11. As nana said, I am sure that you have gotten many suggestions, but just in case you have not tried peppermint I thought that I would let you know that it saved me. I lived on peppermint candies for my last 2 pregnancies and it made a big difference. Congrats and best wishes. P.S. maybe this news could inspire a theme week about great homemade baby shower gifts.

  12. Congratulations! I hope you will be entering a less sick phase of pregnancy soon. I can't say I ever enjoyed the early part of my pregnancies. The only thing "good" about the morning sickness was knowing it was due to a good surge of hormones. It's amazing how something so small can wreak so much havoc on the body.

  13. Do you need a web developer resume example? Here it is!
