less talk more pictures

Communication.

It's not been working so well for me lately. Or possibly..ever.

I'm still not quite sure how saying the word "circus" became "surrogate" and when I tried to correct those misunderstood they nodded their heads and politely mouthed to each other, "mmhmm..surrogacy."

Really?

Marriage requires communication so Andrew and I talk a lot about..everything. We're improving a little everyday.

While talking about what Disney movies we should buy Elle, Andrew said, "hey you know that little old lady who walks her dog that's Dora's friend?"

Let's all assume he's referring to Dora the Explorer, Ellie's t.v bff.



"Little old lady? Do you mean Benny the Bull?"

"C'mon you know who I'm talking about. Dora's FRIEND. The little old lady who always walks her dog."

"Map? Backpack? I have no idea who you're talking about"

"What?! Yes you do.  Dora's friiiennnd" (because enunciation is clearly the problem here)

"Yeah I don't watch the show honey, I don't know all of Dora's friends."

lightbulb...

"hmm...you know I'm talking about our neighbor Dora, right?"

"Ohhh you mean Shirley!"

So from now on I'll just let my camera do all the talking..courtesy of my pretty new iphone..

 
I found this gorgeous blue paint at my aunt's to use for my bathroom only to realize it's coincidentally the exact same shade (different brand) as my bedroom. No wonder I liked it. Paint fail.

                                Her favorite place to play in the whole house.

               Thanks Costco for helping me relive some of the greatest cartoons from my childhood!

You know that thing that you keep reminding yourself to buy, but you never get around to it? Mine was towels...ahh new towels really are the best.


Colored skinnies are taking over my closet..in order: mustard, cobalt, blue sky, rose, spearmint, gray, ivory, coral, midnight, minty fresh, forest green

  4. That's funny. I can't count the number of times per week my understanding of what my children are actually saying versus what I am hearing gets all mixed up. Love your writing style. Funny and refreshing!
