I've told you before,  I'm a sucker for word art.  Someday I'll figure out the right timeless words to make art from.  Until then I'll keep being inspired by fun photos like this which I spotted here

Funny Confession #147

I can't get it out of my head!  Glad I'm not the only one!  Did you watch and love it like we did?

If you  missed want to watch over and over and over the zou bisou bisou scene, here it is!

Megan was great...but Roger's song was the highlight for us.  Ha, he is the best!

In Jamaica I read Bringing Up Bebe, and like every other maman that reads it I couldn't wait to see how my kids did with the yogurt cake recipe

They did alright, and had a blast.  I really tried to hold back (the whole point of the recipe is that small kids are supposed to be able to do it alone), but ended up feeling like a bit of a control freak.  It was SO HARD to let them pour, mix, etc. without jumping in.  So I jumped in a little. 

Super fun project.  We'll They'll do it again.  The cake turned out pretty well.  We They added in strawberries and Nutella.  I think next time we'll they'll try chocolate chips.

50% Complete

Hunger Games. Gotta finish it on this flight. Home soon!

We (Still) All Get 24

I loved this recent post on Cup of Jo about "busy".  It reminded me so much of a post I wrote years ago  that I still think about.  Changing your perspective from "I'm too busy to do that" to "I am not going to prioritize that" is kind of empowering.

C'est Vrai

We Vacation In Color

Sunny days with KK are happy days

Photo Love

I totally love this room.  The obvious highlight (besides the rug, the light, the Hermes tray....) is that photo.  So freaking cute.  I saw it here.  I tracked it back to here, but can't find the true original source.

Funny Confession #146: Hose Clothes

I would be a lot more likely to water the grass/garden/whatever if my hose had a slipcover. Brilliant.

Uncle Sylly!

The babes are skiing squaw for the first time. This is major! Good thing their uncle is by their side to show them the ropes.

Girls Rule - Go Angels!

You gotta read this article about my niece Z's baseball team!  So freaking cool.  My sister (and a friend) started the team and my bro-in-law is the coach.  So rad!  Proud of team Lucas!  Go Angels! LOVE! 
 "I don't think there's any reason girls can't play baseball like boys," Zoe Lucas said while eating her post-game snack.  Well said Z.  Duh.

Buzz Cut


This post is for my mama and my sis, both proud Hoosiers! 

PDX love IU, IU loves PDX.  March Madness!

Mural Love

The great news:  Today I fell for this mural.  It has been around since 1982, but I swear I've never seen it before.  I love Portland. 

The not so great news: I am not in Jamaica as planned.  I'm in Portland, admiring banana murals. Fingers crossed I'll be there soon.

Funny Confession #146

When a bestie invites you to Jamaica at the last minute, you coordinate childcare, buy a ticket, get a pedicure and go for it! Is it Friday yet?!?!

Parenting Reads

I have read and enjoyed each of these articles recently.  If you read them all you'll laugh and cry. 
An 11 step program for people thinking about having kids.  Parts of it are hilarious.  Esp the part about bringing goats to the grocery store.

A good read about judging other parents.  We all did it before having kids and we probably still do it more than we should. 

Balance - work and family

7 Things You Don't Know About A Special Needs Parent  This was a touching and honest read.
