a bird's life: vegas bound

As you are reading this, I am probably on a plane to Vegas. Our little sister, Kristin, lives there with her husband and baby girl, who just turned one! I am going to visit them and celebrate my niece. My mom and Kristin's in-laws will be there, too. It will be nice to be around family for the weekend! And I will be back with my husbo and kids by Mother's Day evening, just in time for them to take me out to dinner! Yay! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

~ Fact: When I see a mirrored window, I will force my family (or whomever I am with) to take a selfie with me.
~ Twinsies. (I can only do this for a little longer before it starts getting weird.)
~ Bike rides right before sunset are my favorite.
~ The Blackboard Bear books are Ben's favorites right now. He carries them around all day!
~ We tried Paneer Tikka pizza last weekend. Indian food+pizza? Yes, please!
~ I stick my phone in Jim's face and take our photo a lot. He only gets slightly annoyed which is how I know he loves me.
~ A lazy Sunday, my kitchen rug, and my favorite shoes.
~ Ben has started drawing actual little beings. I love this one's sweet dance moves.

  6. I wish my husband was that tolerant. i asked him to take my photo in the park on the way home for the blog and I instead got a 10 minute rant-ette about how he is not comfortable taking my pictures just to serve the needs of the internet- grrrrrrr!
    That is SUCH a sweet picture of you and Mimi!x

  7. Happy Mother's Day Birds!!! Hope you both (all) have a wonderfully pampered day and weekend!

  8. PS That picture of you and Ben in overalls is my favorite ever.
