Ready. Set. Go…

31 Mar

Almost. T-minus 3 days until takeoff.

PHL

Quick stop in PHL. And then off to Barcelona …

COFFEE

MARKET

GARDENS

MORE COFFEE

SHOE SHOPPING

If I’m lucky and R doesn’t get bored.

SOAP

Soap shopping? I just love the pretty colors.

3 sleeps, 1 race, 3 flights and we’ll be there. Can’t wait!

Cheers!

Have a heart…

29 Mar

Heartbeat that is…

Bean

I’d like you to meet my future niece or nephew. I call it Bean. It looks like a bean and Tiff’s been eating a lot of Mexican food (we are hoping it comes out looking Mexican) so I thought it appropriate.

I don’t know about you, but seeing the little flutter that the doctor tells you is the heartbeat of a future little person (even if it totally looks like an alien now) just melts my heart.

I am pushing for Bree for a girl (or boy). Or anything starting with a Br. I won’t hesitate to insist it’s named after me.

Cheers to new babies named after me!

A day of rest

28 Mar

On the 7th day he rested…and on the Monday after completing her first Triathlon she rested. Wow, did I just compare myself to God? Nah, that would be outrageous.

I’d like to share a few things I learned.

5am comes faster than you think

The water is cold. Wear a wetsuit. Even if they're very unflattering.

The scariest part is waiting to start. Smile through it.

Don't fall off your bike.

Run faster, she's right behind you!

Having your family and friends there supporting you is the best part!

Swim.Bike.Run. Have fun!

Cheers!

O baby…

25 Mar

I had this whole wordy post written for you but it must have been really boring. My computer fell asleep and lost it. Probably better (I was even falling asleep writing it).

But I’m back. Coffee in hand. To deliver something worth reading. Or at least short and sweet.

It’s baby season! At least in my bubble. Now before you start getting ideas…it’s not ME and NO I will not be having babies anytime soon. I will leave that up to the married people in my life.

But as a cautionary, if you’re not ready to be with child... Don’t. Drink. The Water. There’s something in it.

You could end up like this

Can’t wait to meet the new babies and give them lots of love…and toys and clothes. I am the best aunt ever. Promise.

Just ask this guy

Caden

 They are both going to be BIG brothers!

A baby sister for Jace!

Baby!

Lil' Ryder

 

Baby McHugh

4 gorgeous couples + 4 beautiful new babies = 1 happy auntie.

It feels like just yesterday..

I still can’t believe my baby sister is having a baby. But she has the nausea to prove it.

Cheers to Babies!

S’more what?

24 Mar

S’more peanut butter please.

Rain Pour

Peanut butter goes with everything (even tuna if you ask R). Actually, I take that back…I put it in my oatmeal one time. Sounds great right? Not so much. I wouldn’t try that at home. Or do and tell me what you think. (bleh)

But peanut butter DOES go with s’mores. In our case in replacement of chocolate. Much better if you ask me.

Handful

Bag

Jar

Ingredients:

  • Large dose of rain
  • Handful of Graham Crackers
  • Bag of Marshmallows
  • Jar of Peanut Butter – Large Spoon
  • Just add fire and you’ve got yourself one cozy night. S’more please!

Fire

Cheers!

You asked for it

23 Mar

And by [you] I mean 1 person..

In a perfect world I would get to pick out R’s outfits every day. Not entirely sure he wouldn’t let me. For the sake of argument let’s just say he would.

Dress up with R.

Bonus! Man accessories. Ooo fun.

It's in the Bag

Step it Up

Cheers!

Dinner, Drinks and Dress Up

22 Mar

Airport

 There were a few missing elements for dress up last night so it’s been postponed until next Monday. I did however find some great inspiration from Marta MorethanMode. She doesn’t know it yet, but she’s my new best friend. And best friends always share clothes!

15 days of outfits in Spain (thank you new best friend).
