This weekend was spent whipping up a delicious red velvet cupcake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting, tye-dying baby items while catching up with a friend who has known me since before i started shaving my legs. Although to be clear, i started shaving them in the 5th grade....yes everyone was jealous and envious. We have been friends through the awkward adolescent period, sporting outfits that would have gotten us featured in the don't section of glamour magazine, but to us we were being radical and different, we didn't have a care what other people thought of our kick wears and doc martens. We have been friends despite moving to different states, participating in complete dating disasters and managing to live together in the best apartment ever, for two years. Our friendship has even survived my (surprise!) venture in to marriage. I think that it is safe to say that even though a baby changes a lot, it doesn't change the connections that you have formed throughout your past. I do predict a few changes, i suppose that's just life, but if i were to venture a guess, we'll still be walking around the lake discussing the same things that have always kept us the awesome friends that we have become. Here's to another 30 plus awesome years together.....hopefully at that point we'll be lounging by the pool, worrying only about what time we should play tennis and if the water temp is 79 degrees and not a frigid 78.

Today i managed to really accomplish nothing. I lay in my bed with my dogs and read this book. Then i proceeded to make delicious donut-like confections bathed in butter then showered with cinnamon and sugar, from the previously mentioned book. Of course i then ate many of these donut morsels and let me tell you, they are delicious. Not like, oh yes they are good, more like, oh my god must eat more immediately good. I must say all in all, a day well spent. I really don't feel an ounce of guilt because soon i will have not even one second of time to meander about and do nothing. This will become one of those days that soon i will long to experience and day dream about obsessively while trying to simultaneously calm a small child and make myself look like a normal functioning human being.

This is our first tomato from our garden. It looks rather cute and very appealing, but never the less....i don't like tomatoes. I always hope that this is the year, so i try them and am always disappointed. I like tomato products, including my great love for tomato juice but just can't bring myself to appreciate the flavor of the fresh from the vine variety. Maybe i will spontaneously like Bananas and Tomatoes...then again maybe not.

Where has the summer gone???!! Actually, i love, love, love September, October and November, so really i don't mind that summer is coming to a close. The only thing i dread is having to expose a small child to the bitter cold of the winter. Maybe he'll come early, although i wouldn't blame him if he really didn't want to come out at all.
Currently i'm craving....donuts covered in cinnamon and sugar.
Currently i'm loving.... the Peace Green Stroller tote from Dante Beatrix.
Currently i'm hating.... not being able to sleep for longer than two hours at a time.
Currently i'm thankful.... that i'm married to a very understanding (and handsome) man!
