head first

the coolest way to dive into your first cupcake--head first. i've never seen it done this way before, but as soon as the cupcake was placing in front of him, he just dove. most kids prod it with their fingers, poke it, gingerly lick some icing, but not this guy. no hands, he just lowered his face in like he was inhaling it. he just stayed submerged in cupcake for several seconds before coming up for air and then would be at it again. his face was a mess but his hands stayed totally cake-free. as least for a while.

happy bday oscar, you rock!

i love this song

takes me back to those college days at Murphy's pub. bar food, Miller beer, and you were guaranteed to hear this song and the stones' honky tonk women. every night.

The Gambler - Kenny Rogers


hard to believe that erika's little guy is turning one tomorrow. seems like just yesterday i was lucky enough to be present when he made his entrance into the world. sigh. time flies. sometimes more with other people's kids than with my own!

i will definitely have to post pictures of oscar having cake for the first time, i hope to get to it before we leave for our cruise tomorrow, if not it will definitely happen when i get back. i have never quite seem a kid eat cake the way oscar did, it was hilarious!

here's a couple pictures of oxer.


shoes, shoes, shoes

well, we had a really productive weekend. we did a lot of cleaning and i finally tackled my closet, which was a monster. it took hours and hours but it was definitely worth it. i was able to store most everything away and just put out the maternity stuff and i even found a pair of adidas sandals that i haven't seen since last summer. they were in a plastic band covered in sand and untouched from when i returned from the girlfriend trip to Florida A YEAR AGO. i find it sad that i could lose them for such a long time in my own closet. maybe sadder still that last weekend i almost bought the same pair again, forgetting i even had them in the first place. note to self: organize closet better.

and speaking of shoes, it was much appreciated the advice i got about flip flops from friends. big shout out to amy who recommended fit flops, which i have yet to try out, and lindsey, who sang the praises of chacos. unfortunately, i had just gone out the previous day and bought a pair of crocs flip flops which i regretted as soon as i tried the chaco pair on. i had debated about the crocs pair, it had a bit more cushion in the heel but was still pretty wide for my foot and didn't feel as amazing as i had hoped. and they were $40, which was just a tad over what i wanted to spend on crocs. but i bought them, only to find the very next day that another store had a different pair of crocs flip flops that were much better for narrow feet and $10 cheaper. and this same day, i found chacos. they were awesome--great arch support, still sleek and not too chunky, they were just what i was looking for. except they didn't have black, and i really want all black for now. so i went home, debated with myself about the purchase. and in the meantime my pal dori calls me up to tell me that her big lug of a dog just chewed her Birks up and she was curious about the crocs. well, i told her what she really needed were the chacos and she snatched up a pair right away, advising me to do the same.

unfortunately, i didn't order them right away. and we're leaving on vacation tuesday and i'm *dying* to get them. when i saw dori over the weekend and admitted to having waited until Thursday night at 11:30 to order them, right before the 4th, she hit me. hard too. i'm such a dope. i told her i wasn't sure if i'd want them on vacation or if i'd just wait until i got back to break them in. see that's the thing--these shoes are so supportive you really need to only wear them a little at a time in the beginning while you get used to each other. i wasn't sure if out trip was the right time. but ultimately, my feet are still hurting these days, even with the, keep your fingers crossed that they arrive Monday!
