Speed Updates - the best

Hey, there!  It's been awhile, but let's forgive and forget.

I was going to greet you all with my latest/cutest Valentine's Day decor that may or may not feature my adorable daughter, but my phone (which does all the picture-taking) will not cooperate.  Its new goal is for me to hate the way it operates on a data plan and it has certainly accomplished its mission.  But you know what?  I can forgive and forget.

Since I don't have any fantastic tales to tell, here are some updates in bullet-point form (because, let's face it, we all like the luxury of reading without much effort... and writing without much effort):

-  The Hunger Games.  I read the trilogy in a matter of 3 weeks (a decent accomplishment for a mom-head).  I LOVED them.  I take issue with the ending of Mockingjay (can we please take just FIVE seconds to dwell on the man she ends up marrying... wasn't half the goal of getting through the series to find out who she ends up with??  The ending arrives and we're thrown, "Oh, real quick: I knew I needed *name of guy*.  He was perf, you guys.  I love 'im.  We go married.").  Forgive and forget.

-  Alice has been a little chatter box lately and I can't get enough.  She cracks me up.

- On Tuesday and Wednesday I spent all day helping my mom with her cookie business.  It's always good to spend time in that wonderful home... it's also strange to me how eager I am to get back to my own home.  Growing up, I never thought that feeling "home" would change.

-  I feel like I've been trying to catch up in organizing my home, since we moved in in a frenzy.  I was pregnant. Oklahoma had record highs.  I walked around the house with the window units blasting and a cold cloth glued to my neck. goal was just to unpack boxes.  So now I have a drawer in the living room filled with crafting things.  And a drawer in the nursery filled with crafty things.  Some in a random cabinet.  And some under the bed.  It's like a crafting scavenger hunt whenever I need glue.  Today I plan to organize.

Have a happy Thursday!  Forgive and forget.


  1. Read you Q&A session on Jenni's blog and loved it, especially your honesty! Now I am going to try and catch up on your blog :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Lottie!! So glad you enjoyed it. :)

  2. What is wrong with your phone??

    And we still need to talk about the hunger games.........

    1. Well, our wifi in the house isn't working, so we have to hook up our computers like we're in the '90s! And my internet through my data plan has been sketchy.

      Yes. Hunger Games needs to be talked about asap.

  3. I am so glad you LOVED the Hunger Games! I want to join in on the book discussion.

    I am only 85% satisfied with the Mockingay ending. I needed a little more, too.

  4. Yay! You've finished The Hunger Games! And I read your Q&A on Jennifer's blog! And Sally showed me a video of you singing while baking cookies! It seems you are everywhere in my life except my actual life.
