8 Months!


Little Miss is 8 months!  Time is flying.

I am sorely behind on keeping up with this blog.  I hope to do some catching up before the end of the month.

Weekending: A Derby Day Party and a Trip to the Park













Hubby and I began our weekend tired.  Sadly we had back to back funerals on Thursday and Friday.  It wasn't anyone in our family but the family of friends.  Needless to say, I have been thinking about my own mortality.  It's a reminder that we are only here for a short time and we need to make it count.

This weekend was our annual Kentucky Derby Party.  My battery died so I don't have many photos of the party but I got a few beforehand.  It was great to spend time with our friends.  We have so much food left over that we won't have to go shopping for several days.

The weather is finally beautiful and Hubby and I decided to take Little Miss to the park.  We live really close to a neighborhood "pocket park" and we put Little Miss in the swing for the first time.

I have my finals for my classes tomorrow and I can't wait for it to be over and for summer to begin!

Weekending: Piano Bar, Birthday Party and the Summer's First Fire








It was a nice weekend.  On Friday evening, we went out with friends to see some dueling pianos.  We went out with some good friends who had not been to dueling pianos before.  It was a good time.

Saturday we attended the first birthday party for the son of Hubby's best friend.  It is hard to believe he was a year already.  And the Little Miss will be a year old in five short months!  Where does all the time go?

The Little Miss had a case of bronchiolitis in March that she never completely got over.  We were told she would have a lingering cough for a few weeks.  Well it never went away and it got worse.  So on Sunday morning we had to miss Mass and we went to see her Pediatrician.  She is too young to get diagnosed with asthma but they called it an episode of Reactive Airway Disease gave us some liquid albuterol.  Let's hope she finally feels better again.  I have asthma so I was hoping she wouldn't develop it.  If she does, let's hope she outgrows it.

I began working on a special present.  Too bad it's a present and I can't share it until the recipient receives it.  #craftblogproblems.  We had our first fire Sunday night.  (Don't worry.  Little Miss was in bed-thank you portable monitor.  I wouldn't have her near a fire and smoke with potential asthma.)

Spring Afternoons







One of the best things about warm spring days is sitting on our front deck.  A little bit of sunshine, a little bit of wine, a little bit of knitting and a whole lot of fun. Let's hope there will be many more to come this year.

This Moment: Fun in the Bouncer (100th post!)

A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Weekending: Piano Bar and Hibachi






It was a nice weekend.  Got stuff done around the house.  Dueling pianos and hibachi.  Breakfast with my best friend who turns out is expecting. I am so excited for that. Good times.
