things-i-love thursday.
1. mr.a. yeah, yeah, yeah. i know you're all sick of me gushing over him. absence makes the heart grow fonder and the gushing more frequent. so deal.
2. scary new experiences. this week i've had two friends ask me to model for something. eeek! i have no idea why they've asked me to participate. they must be desperate. one friend has a personal shopping business and needs some pictures for her website. and the other friend is planning a benefit fashion show for breast cancer and asked me to walk!the!runway! ohmaword. it freaks me out just typing it. but i'm gonna man-up for breast cancer! (but after i man-up for breast cancer, i'll probably die from panic attack.)
3. piper's new hair-cut. this was the best decision i've made since getting an iud! (was that tmi? sorry.) it's so easy to manage. piper loves it. it's totally adorable. and we haven't had a single tangle since the big cut!
4. people sharin' the love. last week i got an awesome anonymous card that really encouraged me. then i got another card with a gift certificate to my favorite lunch spot. thank-you soooo much, kasey! not to mention all your awesome comments and e-mails. it really means a lot to me. i love hearing from you guys.
5. the bachelor pad. yep, guilty pleasure. i blame any and all interest in the bachelor on my sister. ("she started it!") but, i will admit, it's fun mindless tv. that is really stupid. but i still like it.
6. nice people. today i left a baby gap shopping bag in the middle of a department store. "left" as in, left the store, drove home, didn't realize it til an hour later. i figured it was gone forever. serves me right for spending too much money at that place. but everything was so cheap! (i blame my sister, again, for making me go in there.) but! i called, and someone had turned it in. it was waiting for me in customer service. thank-you, nice people!
7. my new nephew. okay. he hasn't actually been born yet. but he's coming!!! soon! and i can't wait! this will be the first baby boy on mr.a's side of the family and i'm so excited. today i picked out a few sweet things for him at baby gap (which i proceeded to leave at von maur, see above.) and i had to hold myself back. it's so fun to finally get to shop in the boy department! (and if i ever get aforementioned iud taken out, it will hopefully result in my own little boy.)
8. kings of leon. i have listened to their latest album non-stop since mr.a gave it to me for christmas. i can't get enough of it. even piper sings along. (though whatever she's singing consists of made-up words and, well, that's about it.) they have a new album coming out october 19th! can't wait!
9. my clean house. yep. i'm actually typing away in a clean house! this is monumental for me. we often have a room or two that are clean at a given time, but the whole house??? never. or, at least it's very rare. i know we are only one disastrous afternoon away from destruction. but for now, it's clean! and it's glorious. (disclaimer: my definition of clean may be very different from yours. don't judge.)
10. my little big girls. the girls are growing up. they play together. they giggle and "talk". piper is mellowing and coming into her own. less feisty and wild, more fun and spunky. it's really nice. and quinn! quinn is on the verge of walking and talking and all things fun and scary. she is still the snuggliest little bug. and i love that. she's always ready for a hug. and so am i.

  3. hello there and thank you for your information – I have
    definitely picked up something new from right here.
    I did however expertise several technical issues using this site, since I experienced to reload the
    website lots of times previous to I could get it to load properly.
    I had been wondering if your web hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining, but slow loading instances times
    will sometimes affect your placement in google and could damage your high-quality score if ads and marketing with Adwords.
    Anyway I'm adding this RSS to my email and could look
    out for a lot more of your respective exciting content.

    Make sure you update this again very soon.
