Monday Listicles

Hi there!

Sorry I am running a little late. Last week was one of the best ones yet-ever! My dear friend Lily Rose stopped by on her world travels and we had so much fun 24 hours in the day just weren’t enough. If you ever feel like having your morning coffee with a side of awesome you should visit her blog. I don’t think she has been in one spot for long in years and she makes traveling look like so much fun. Also my boys adore her. SO clearly she is good people!

I could not decide on just 10 favorite things about Autumn because I love it so I wrote first ten that came to mind. Let’s see what you got!

Next week:

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. Colors

2. Warm beverages

3. Sweaters and cardigans

4. Weather

5. Socks

6. Chestnuts

7. Fog

8. Reading books under a warm blanket

9. Hanging out with friends

Monday Listicles

You all are awesome!

Thanks for coming back to the listicles after the summer break. It was so much fun reading your hashtags, I was laughing on the floor in my closet one evening and I haven’t done that in ages. Feels good to be back to blogging!

Little J lost his first tooth on Friday and what a project this was. I will sit down and tell you all about it soon, it might turn into quite a novel! That kid I tell you, one in a million…
Since he started first grade and is in school for hours I have had a lot of alone time and I am really baffled by how little is on my mind. I used to think that I don’t get any thoughts to myself since I was always with Julian but it turns out my mind is preoccupied with the most irrelevant stuff ever that serves no purpose whatsoever but to keep me busy. And before you ask, it’s not sex. I wish! It’s things like: I wonder what that seagull is thinking and if he can see my roots from up there, maybe I should make an appointment soon but I bet Leslie is fully booked, oh I loved her wedding photos, wish more brides would get married in the fall and how come I always get booked for summer weddings when the sun is strongest and the natural light sucks, oh let me check what time is the sunset so I can confirm the times for my Saturday photo session, wait wheres my phone? Oh, other pocket, don’t panic. Oh look, someone like my Facebook post. Oh, it’s Lola. I haven’t seen her since 8th grade. Now her hair looks great! Wait what she has three kids now? Must be why her hair is so full bodied. Speaking of full bodied, I haven’t eaten anything since breakfast…

In other news apparently summer bid it’s farewell and Pumpkin spice latte is back so I guess we just have to do this next week:


Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!

5. What’s next

6. Things that make no sense at all

7. What am I forgetting?

8. Time

9. How to decorate my imaginary cabin in the mountains

10. Absolutely nothing at all

Have you heard the news?

Alison, our friend and blogger extraordinaire gave birth to her twins yesterday! Boy and a girl, tiny little miracles welcomed by their two older brothers and loving parents. So happy for them, congratulations!!

In other news I have no news at all. We had a great weekend, spending Saturday on snow covered mountain and Sunday on a sandy beach. What can I say, that’s Washington for you, perfect in every way.

Tomorrow is my husband’s birthday and I thought about writing this listicle for him or about him or maybe as a gift since I couldn’t come up with anything awesome to wrap up and surprise him with but I’ll stick to making fun of myself instead. When one is my husband’s age one probably doesn’t want the whole world to know just how old you are. Not that I would bring that up anyway!

Obviously hashtags like #WorldsGreatestWife and #1Mom come to mind but there is so much more to me then that so here goes…
