1) I've started watching The Bachelorette. How I made it all the way through my twenties without watching any of the series is beyond me. I started watching because Howard Stern wouldn't stop talking about it and my only regret is not starting sooner.
2) My garden is growing like crazy. Our herb garden always does pretty well (installed this summer with the same setup as usual) but our veggie garden is doing well this year, too. Peppers, eggplant, zucchini, cucumbers, and tomatoes galore. We're getting to the point in the summer where we're about to be overwhelmed with delicious, fresh produce.
3) After years of regular-dress territory, I've decided that I can maybe pull off a maxi dress. Perfect for looking fancy when I'm really not and for sitting on the ground when playing with Will.
4) ...and speaking of Will the Baby, we have a walker! For the last few months he has been getting steadier and steadier on his feet and I feel like I spend most of every day chasing him around the house. He's an expert at de-childproofing (maybe we're just awful at childproofing?) and that's really what's been keeping me busy.
The picture above reminds me that I've wanted to paint our front door a bright, punchy color (and have for a while). It also makes me realize that I probably won't be doing it for a while. Naptimes, when most bloggers seem to complete their projects, are usually spent trying to control house chaos or take a nap myself. How long does the "sleep while the baby sleeps" rule apply? 4th grade? College acceptance?
I'm off to catch up on Andi's escapades (I missed last night) but I'll leave you with some pictures of our garden to pizza adventure from the other night...
...and the promise to be back soon with some more posts and photos! Thanks for hanging in there (stay hungry! stay homey!).
