a week in instagram...

I find myself wishing that Project Life came with square photo pockets, because most of my story-telling "day in the life" type photos are instagram-ed.   i've printed a bunch out and included them here and there in my album, and while the quality isn't great, they surely tell the stories of our days...

1.  Jeremy ran the Chicago marathon last Sunday (he did AWESOME, so PROUD!) and that afforded us some time to hang out with lovely friends and go lovely places.  One of those places was the comic book store.  Jeremy stopped in on his way back to Tyler and Mer's and brought back a few comics for the boys.  The boys are all super heroes, all the time, but didn't have any comic books yet...Sam is hooked now.  If only comic books made better read-aloud books.  Sigh.

2.  Monday...while Sam was at school, Marcus and I ran several errands...one of them being checking at Aldi to see if they had pumpkin available. And YAY! they did!  I use a lot of it through the year and Aldi gets it in during October for a great price.  I bought a lot last year, and Jeremy wound up making pumpkin ale with it, so I was out out out and wanting to make pumpkin everything.  Anyway...I didn't have a quarter for the cart, so I just loaded up my arms with two flats (pallets?) of pumpkin.  being superwoman(!), it was no big deal...except for the part where I pinched my (pregnant!) nipple in between the two flats...oh PAIN.  I yelled out loud...thankfully the store was rather empty and Marky was the only person who noticed, and he didn't really care.  oh my, sore for DAYS...here's my hard-won pumpkin, ready for pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin bread, pumpkin smoothies, pumpkin pie, pumpkin anything...I have yet to work up the nerve to load my arms back up and take it all down to the basement.  i don't think my nipple can take it.

3.  What, you don't ever find a giant rubber rat dangling from your silverware drawer?  Lies.

4. I've been pinning all kinds of fun baby girl things lately. And haven't DONE a thing about a single one of them.  Until yesterday. Found some felt and a little bit of spare time (oh who am I kidding about the spare time? I neglected other things so I could play around!) and made up some pretties for the little GIRL that will join us in February.  My sweet friend Stacie issued a challenge a while back to actually DO one thing you've pinned every week, and that's another post altogether, but I'm doing pretty well, since recipes count!
 

5.  Ooooh this one is really out of order, but I'm not fixing it b/c blogger makes it difficult.  Last week was PERFECT, weather-wise.  We had two weeknight campfires with s'mores and our favorite neighborfriends.  We're going camping with those neighbors, so the campfires (complete with 5 ridiculously loud and silly boys shouting and dancing like babboons) are certainly not over yet.  Look out Brown County...we are set to be "those" people...

6.  I am really digging the time I get with just Marcus these days, with Sam in preschool three days a week.  He's the silliest, sweetest, most expressive little person.  While we were waiting in the pickup line the other day, Marcus practiced his faces for me.  This was "angry"...we may need some more practice, since I'm certainly not intimidated:

I'm stopping there, but I want to be a good blogger, so hopefully there will be more to come...

Oh my goodness, I am still smiling about the nipple thing! (I SO would do something like that...)
and Marcus's little stank face staring back at me is not helping matters.

Seriously cute photos...and I love the face Marcus is making. And #2 cracks me up. Ouch. But I think that pumpkin smoothies might be worth it. :-)
