after yesterday's hermitage, we were out & about all day today.
it was one of those days that was just good for the soul.
.perfect weather.
.a great workout.
.first flowers bloomed of the year.
.an afternoon sans kids.
.being able to shower & get ready in peace. (see above.)
.rolled-down windows.
.browsing at some of my favorite stores.*
.cheap surprises for the girls that they loved.
 (elmo figurine for q, stickers for p.)
.family dinner.  
.lots of smiles and laughs.
it was a great leave-home day.

perfectionists beware:
i have an aversion to folding my jeans symmetrically.

*i realized this week that, out of the entire set of drinking glasses that mr.a & i bought when we were first married, we have three left. three. three! we have several wine & beer glasses, but it seems a little odd to offer guests water in a glass that says sam adams.
so today i was on a mission to replace our drinking glasses. i went to pier 1, tj maxx, tuesday morning, marshall's and world market and didn't find anything i really loved. after having the same glasses for six years, i'm ready to find something different and, realizing they'll be around for a while, i really want to make sure i like them a lot. i made the mistake of looking online and of course i found several that i love (these, these, these, and these) but i think i should probably spend less. so tomorrow i'm going to check a few other places. i may need to just settle on something and give up on my dream glasses.
ok, i know i sound like a freak. whatever. when your husband's deployed you're allowed to be preoccupied by completely meaningless things like new drinking glasses and finding easter shoes for your kids. it helps the time pass.


  1. The West Elm glasses aren't that expensive! How many do you want? I would go for those!

    1. Vương Lâm rơi vào mê muôi.

      Thiên huyễn vô tình đạo ở trên người của Liễu Mi, đã đạt đến Anh Biến trung kỳ. “Thiên huyễn” này thực thế mới chỉ là chín trăm chín mươi chín “huyễn”. Mỗi một “huyễn” chính là một thế của Liễu Mi.

      Giống như Liễu Mi ở Thiên Đạo Tông năm đó, cũng chỉ là một “huyễn” của bản thể nàng mà thôi.

      Những “huyễn thân” như thế, Liễu Mi tổng cộng đã trải qua đến chín trăm chín mươi chín lần, chỉ có một “huyễn” nữa là có thể đạt đến Thiên huyễn vô tình đạo, đạt tới Anh Biến hậu kỳ đại viên mãn. Chỉ cần nàng có đủ tiên ngọc, khiến cho tiên lực đạt đến cực hạn liền có thể hướng đến Vấn Đỉnh, trải qua khảo nghiệm sinh tử, hoặc là bỏ mình hoặc là tiến nhập Vấn Đỉnh kỳ.

      Mị Cơ xuất hiện, đối với Liễu Mi mà nói là một lần khảo nghiệm nghiêm khắc. Nếu không có Tam tổ vô tình trợ giúp thì Liễu Mi rất có thể bị Mị Cơ đoạt xá, trở thành một tấm thân chỉ biết hưởng thụ thú vui nhục dục.

  2. i use plain old mason jars! 2 different sizes love them and i can always find more if i need them in 10 years! : )

  3. do you have a Home Goods near you? I saw some nice glases there the other day.

  4. You look so spring-y and fresh! Have you tried Target? All of our glasses are from Target - so when they break, I don't shed a tear!

  8. This is the reason why creating backup copies for Xbox games can be a tedious task.
    You check to see if the pilot is ok and he will get shot in the face.

  12. In this way you can educate yourself in determining the problems
    you may face such as the "Red Ring of Death" and many
    other technical problems. Every time you play this mode the map
    is going to be completely new, because there are more than 150 tiles but only
    a couple dozen are used each time. We believe
    its shocking for many, but we have discounts and offers for the latest
    Kinect as well.
