Its Friday again..and let me just say for this week to have come and gone already, I’m not mad about it. I’m ready for a couple days home with my girls and my favorite man.
Speaking of those three.. I’ll just jump right in to my favorites this week – and they are at the top of my list.
These two. Fight. Fight. Fight. A LOT lately. And its exactly as you would envision a ‘girl’ fight. Pulling hair, scratching, screaming..all ending in overly animated sobs.
In true ‘girl’ form, they are besties (frenemies? Might be a better word..) in less than three minutes time. We have been working HARD not to send them both to time out when they argue and cat fight like this. A heart-felt ‘sorry’ and hugs seem to do the trick in resolving their issues at the moment. Better for everyone, really. I (or Jordan) do not have the be the ‘bad guy’, and the word “sorry Jowee/Ah-kaah” coming out of my 2 year olds’ mouth is perhaps the most precious thing you have ever heard.
..and I’m back to my place in line as the third wheel. But I’m okay with that, I think. Because I get to sit back and watch them interact, and thats reward enough for me.
Literally 30 seconds after scratching Parker across the chest, they go in yelling “HUGS!”
..as if they were mocking our new found resolution to their fighting.
They would’t mock me, though. No way.
On the other side of the fence, theres this guy. He’s a fireman. You knew that, though.. BUT did you know that he actually fights fire? I forget nearly 100% of the time, and when I call him while he’s at the station, and he doesn’t answer, the thought of him possibly being in a fire situation isn’t in the forefront of my mind at all.. maybe its that fact that 9 out of the 12 years we’ve been together he’s been doing this job, and in 9 years I’ve become accustomed to his work-life.
In Irving they have a Citizen’s Fire Academy, and these people would absolutely do anything for those guys – and they have one man that comes to the fires and takes action photos of our burley men doing what they do best. When I got my hands on some of these this week, my pregnant heart basically exploded in pride of my husband.
..they saved those birds.
Really. They save everything.
Like- the coolest.
I got the best mail day earlier this week when my new Lily Jade diaper bag arrived on my front door step. YES. Thats right – that beauty is a diaper bag. I cannot wait to share how I use this bag in my work-momma life. So easily transitioned to my work bag on a daily basis, but perfectly usual for running errands with the girls. So, stay tuned for that:) Gah – I’m obsessed with it!
MANY of you all asked about the salmon recipe that we ate in my Photo Every Hour post earlier this week. Well, for good reason, because it is so delicious – and so very simple. Its loosely related to Cooking Light’s Broiled Salmon with Marmalade Dijon Glaze
WHO wouldn’t want a chance to enter into this giveaway. I know me and my pregnant self entered.. pregnant or not, their clothing is so versatile that I can make it work with the bump. I could definitely use a little update to this wardrobe-o-mine. I spend all my monies and time and energy on Parker, Jolie, and of course we can’t forget the littlest sister. But $1200.. a $1200(!!!).. shopping spree for MOMMA would be amazing. So how do you enter? That’s even better. No loops, no following, no long term commitment to anything.. just join their mailing list. Giveaway runs through February 22nd – so just a few more days to enter!
