Few & Far Between

Sorry the posting is so sporadic! I'd like to say I've been busy "nesting" or something, but I'm not. I've been to bed almost every night by 10 (which is a feat seeing as I'm a nightowl by nature). Couldn't even tell you what I've been doing in the meantime. Where does the time go?

It's nice to see spring is finally here! We went to a working farm this morning, and Quinn got to see a bunch of farm animals up close. She liked the lambs and baby piggies best-- "Babe!!!". My least favorite (and this is soooooooooo gross) part was watching a huge swine pooh and, oh, the hog behind it trying to eat it like it was coming out of a softserve machine. I'M SCARRED FOR LIFE. Thought I would share the grossosity. Kinda like, "Hey this smells bad, smell this", right?

Just one pic to post-- we've had this little acorn birdie house which hangs outside my kitchen window for about 2 years. Nobody's ever noticed until this year. A couple little chickadees have nested here. I'm so excited! They're so cute. My mom said we really need to clean it out after they are done. I don't think there's a way to get the top off, so maybe we can just hose it out or something to make it ready for them next year!

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. xo

I don't think I will ever be able to eat ice cream again. Thanks for that. hehe

Foster Freeze AND bacon in one fell swoop.

I don't eat chocolate ice cream anyway, so whatever.

Did you ever finish Sweeney Todd?

Love the acorn house. Congrats on your birdhouse guests!

Your soft serve story reminds me of David Sedaris' story of his brother Rooster's dogs trained to eat each other's poop "straight from the tap". So gross!!

Ohhhhh, that was a good laugh! Yuk!!! Hey, I was in The PaperDoll in Bellingham last weekend and I think I saw one of your little pink cases. I never would've made the connection, but I just saw on your blog that you have stuff in there. It was my first time there. Such a fun place!
