what if it's bad

harry potter rocked my world
in a good way
i've read the books multiple times....
.....and am not embarrassed to say it
i cannot wait until the day henry and i will read the series together
(don't even talk to me about what i am going to do if he doesn't love books the way i do)
j.k has written a new book
and i'm pumped to read it
what if it's bad
"i'm so excited!  i'm so excited!  i'm. so. scared!!!!"
(and yes, i call her just 'j.k')

the observer

"daddy mow gwass!"
henry could seriously spend an entire afternoon watching stone mow the backyard
after stone is done, henry pushes his mini toy lawn mower
(or shopping cart. or tiny suitcase)
around the house mimicking his dad
such an observer this one
fingers crossed he observes an awesome science fair project someday and grows up to be a cancer curing scientist
if not, he always has lawn care to fall back on......

(henry watching stone mow the back is optional per usual for the mr.)

messing around

sometimes i just let him make a mess
if for no other reason than to watch him stare at the 'sex and the city' movie dvd cover for 2-4 minutes with a seriously confused look on his face
oh geez this kid puts a smile on my face!

too cute to boot *wink wink*

the days are shorter
the air is crisp
the leaves are changing
fall is here
so naturally i am on a mission to find the mr. a pair (or two) of kick ass boots
here are some options that i have put into my 'cart'


the hunters....

the livie and lucas....
decisions. decisions. decisions.
i never thought i would say this
(seriously. NEVER)
but i think shopping for henry is more fun than shopping for myself
i just had a breakthrough.....
right then
you were witness to it

sunday funday

stone took me to the colts game on sunday
it was a gay old time
beer, a hot dog (for stone) and a soft pretzel with nacho cheese (for me)
what more could a girl ask for!
perhaps a win from the home team....but apparently that is in fact too much to ask for
i tried to make friends with the lady sitting next to me
epic fail
i'm 92% sure she hated me
i think i might have been too chipper for her liking
what can you can't win them all
at least i got to spend the day with my love!
(and a fun pre-game tailgate with great friends! know who you are E Family)

i'm loving....

*cooler nights....
i love having the windows open.  the crisp air makes me snuggle up under the covers.  it's so cozy
*recent purchases for mr. henry at H&M kids

grandpa cardigan with elbow patches.  need i say more?
*the new vase i bought to go on top of the piano  (or as henry would say 'pee-an-NO!')
(purchased at anthro)
*henry and charlotte dancing and smooching at the french market festival on saturday
sweet blonde babies

"party! party! party!"

anytime my nieces chloe and laney watch henry he gets super juiced about it
"coco and lala come over!?!?!?"
except he pronounces lala: 'wawa'
as it should be, he is learning all sorts of things from his older cousins
i think my favorite thing he has learned so far is fist pumping
my almost two year old son fist pumps whilst yelling
"party! party! party!"
it's a real doozy
his only saving grace is that he doesn't have spikey gelled hair, a spray tan and terrible tribal tattoos 
fist pumping with chopsticks....
henry's a real fist pumping pioneer

a table....a yellow table at that!

i recently celebrated a birthday
(29 to be exact...i thought i was turning 28 when a friend was kind enough to remind me it was the ol 2-9.  thanks friend.  you know who you are....hurtful)
so back to the table
the yellow table
actually it's 'harvest gold', but that's neither here nor there
well it's there....on our back porch
isn't she a beauty!
custom made by my pops and uncle danny with a trough down the middle for ice & drinks
it's already been put to good use....many times
thank you dad (danny & ron too!) for making this little lady one seriously happy birthday girl

bloody sunday

(please forgive the mildly gross title)
yesterday was dubbed 'bloody sunday'
it was a day filled with an awesome bloody mary bar
 (provided by katie jean, babs & honey)
shrimp & grits, baked hush puppies and key lime pie
(provided by mi madre..and padre went to the grocery with her)
and hanging out in the 'parlor' in our bungalow
(we now refer to the front room in our home as the electronics and a piano = a parlor)
somehow i managed to not take one photo after we cracked into the bloody mary bar
i shake my tipsy fist at you bloody mary!
my fall resolution...
(yes i am allowed to have a fall resolution)
 take more photos
