Listening to: You guys. My husband directs the musical every year at his high school. Sometime in early spring he picks the musical for fall, and once it's decided it's played non stop around our house. This year it's Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I've never seen this musical. I don't know the words to the songs. But I am humming them allthedamntime. I just got Hello Dolly out of my head.

Watching: Grey's Anatomy, again. I needed something different, but also that I didn't need to spend too much brain power on. If I miss some or even most of an episode, it's not hard to catch back up; outrageous emergency, twisted love triangle, tragic death. Can we please have a moment of silence for Denny Duquette?! After 8 years is this still considered a spoiler? Sorry.

Strawberry rhubarb yogurt. Did you know this existed? I love rhubarb. Even though I'm not much of a yogurt eater, I had to try this. It's. So. Good.

Drinking: Caffeine. Specifically in the form of Coca-Cola. It's bad. I also had my first post-baby alcoholic beverage--a very small, very weak Jameson and ginger ale. Hello, friends, it's good to have you back.

Reading: I wish I was reading a book. I have a few books sitting on my nightstand that I really want to read but I am positive that if I sat down to read a book my eyes would close before I finished the first paragraph.

Working on: My reyna shawl that I started like two years ago. I've ripped it out and restarted it twice, but it's knitting up really quickly. I've had lots of good car knitting time between trips to the children's hospital and trips to Justin's parents' house.

Waiting for: Yarn that I ordered from KnitPicks, and organ music I ordered for a wedding I am playing for. AND, we got some newborn/family pictures taken this past weekend and I can't wait to see them!

Loving: The fact that Jackson has been a napping rock star so far this week (knock on all the wood). Monday while he was sleeping I put away all the clothes that have been sitting in baskets for far too long. I have never been so excited about laundry.

Not loving: I packed up a box of clothes that already don't fit Jackson anymore. What?! Pass the tissues, please.


  1. Rhubarb is one of my favorites! What brand of yogurt is that strawberry rhubarb one? Instinct tells me I'll never find it here but I'm all about

    New yarn is always a good thing.

  2. That was *only* 8 years ago? I feel like it was more...I stopped watching Grey's in 2007ish and feel like that was long after he was gone.
    But shows that don't take brainpower are a good thing.
