bullet points are where it's at

  • We had a rollicking weekend. I didn't get out of my pajamas until 12 on Saturday and even then I only upgraded to sweatpant-material capris. Annabelle didn't make it out of her pajamas until 2 o'clock and that was only because we were going out. We went to our favorite yogurt place and discovered they now have happy hour every day between 2 and 5. Guess where I'll be every afternoon from now on. We had pizza for supper and I didn't even bother getting a healthy vegetable for a side because:
  • Annabelle decided to stay awake for 10 hours straight on Saturday. That's what I get for boasting about what a good sleeper she is. I'm not a violent person, but if anyone had so much as dared to make a noise by moving their little toe after I finally got her asleep at 11:22pm, things would have gotten mean.
  • I'm sewing Annabelle a dress. You can expect it to be done sometime around September of 2016.
  • I have been getting a number of unexplained bruises on my legs. I haven't talked to a doctor about them, just come up with 14 possible reasons for said bruises and given myself 30 days to live. 
  • Sometimes when we put our hand put in front of her face Annabelle will high five it with her hand. I am so proud because I feel like that means I'm doing a great job. Then I think about the fact that she frequently has her middle finger sticking straight up and my pride gets knocked down about twelve notches.
  • Over the course of our wild weekend we played 'Would You Rather Be?" Generally it takes Christopher .3 seconds to answer and he seldom second guesses himself. I gave myself gray hairs trying to decide if I'm rather be a closet or a bureau, a pumpkin or a squash, a barber or a locksmith, a tropical vacation or a mountain vacation. WHAT IF I ANSWER WRONG? What if I say I'd rather be a blanket than a pillow when I should have said the opposite? No need to tell me I'm off my rocker. I'm fully aware. (For the record, I'd rather be a rocking chair than a couch.)

Haha you crack me up! I definitely am a hypochondriac and think any symptom I'm having equals certain and near death. Brian's usually like, you're fine. And he's usually right, but doesn't stop me from worrying!!

I think AB wanted to see what y'all are up to after she goes to bed at night. Better not be having fun without her! ;) And how long did she sleep after being awake for 10 hours???

This post is great!! So what size are you making Sesame's dress to be? And I am RIGHT there with you about pizza! Especially with pepperoni, it has every food group covered!

I had weird leg bruising a year or two ago. The docs made me get lots of bloodwork. Turns out I'm still normal.

Total side note - you are so blog famous! Saw your lovely pic on Kelly's Korner and I was all 'I KNOW THAT GIRL'! Apparently I need a dose of reality.
And it would be financially irresponsible for you to NOT. go to fro yo happy hour. So there's that.
