summer in style

10 June 2018

1. Simon took the five oldest to a Tampa Tarpons game this past week. They had a blast and I'm not sure even I would've taken them solo so let's hear it for Simon. Bosco carefully packed the five baseballs they got at the game in a shoebox and dutifully placed it right in the middle of one of our mostly empty moving pods this afternoon. Priorities Patton at your service.


Simon also managed to snap this super candid pic. Please note Julia's cardigan she insisted on wearing in 98% humidity. We told her there was no way she'd need a sweater and she said she was just keeping it around her waist because, "that's the style."

You heard it here first.

2. ANYWAY, skip the remainder of this post and go read Fran's birth story because you know I've read a lot of birth stories and this one - it's PLATINUM STATUS. Go!

3. I got so many kind emails regarding my melanoma excision and am happy to report that the margins were clear!! So, no follow up treatment is necessary and now I'll just be bathing in sunscreen and doing + scheduling skin checks like a skin check fiend and counting my blessings. I got the stitches out and it looks a million times better already. I've never been a neckerchief gal but I'm going to have to hop on that train asap. If you're worried about a weird looking freckle or mole - the only thing that tipped Simon off about mine was that it went from a teeny tiny raised mole to suddenly being completely flat with one jagged edge. So, there was a huge red flag in the appearance change which turned out to be a good catch on Simon's part. I look in the mirror all the time and didn't even notice the change so shoutout to Dr. Patton. And thus concludes neckgate! Thankfully!

4. Moving right along to #bachelorettenation. I'm firmly planting myself on Team Blake and there's not much any of the other guys can do to sway me at this point. I'm SO EXCITED that Ashley is back to recapping because she has a gift for the written Bachelor/ette word.

5. I'll admit that I momentarily abandoned ship on my books (although Simon started reading The Lying Game so I'll give his final verdict next week) because they lacked serious zip but I'm not giving up on them entirely. I did start reading this sure-to-be classic* and it's zippy, that's for sure. I'm not recommending it quite yet though. *joke

6. I've seen these pants on a few of my favorite bloggers these pants and almost broken the, "thou shalt not covet thy neighbors perfect cropped pants" commandment. Almost! Not quite.

7. I've had my eye on this rug for quite some time and haven't seen it priced this low ... ever. Now the conundrum is do I risk waiting until we move and hope the price doesn't go back up or order it and move it? I'll probably go with the former since I'm nothing if not a risk taker of the most wild variety.

Have a great weekend!!

  1. My labor with my 4th was really similar. All my others had been long, 30, 24,20 hours. I was at 4 when they broke my water and an hour later she came flying out. My husband almost caught her. The anesthesiologist came in right after. I asked if he could still give me the epidural but they said no. 🤣

  2. Definitely platinum birth story! I kept laughing reading it, but did want to cry when she mentioned being on pitocin for 13hrs, going home, and then 12 days later going into labor. I would not have survived- God bless her.

  3. I read all of When Life Gives you Lululemons yesterday and it was a very enjoyable summer read. Hope I don't have most of those people in our life (or am one myself) but I want at least one soapy and delightful summer read like that every year!

  4. The answer is clear: order the rug and have it sent to a relative's house so it will be waiting for you at your destination! I've done this before and it works like a charm ;)
