I was going to say we did “nothing” this week, but apparently I am incorrect. We did nothing besides go to the beach and the aquarium and the grocery store and got ready for/attended Caroline’s dance recital. That was more than enough.

We have one extra place to set the baby down (beside the borrowed rock’n’play and the free basket)…

saturday3

And I have drunk so much red raspberry tea I might actually turn pink. COME ON BEBEH!

This was one of those weeks where I really love living in Connecticut. The weather was gorgeous, we enjoyed the aquarium and the beach, and I was struck by how small/friendly/nice our community is. We ran into people we knew everywhere, which is a pleasant thing to happen when I’m always thinking “What would happen right now if my water broke?” Not that I would just abandon my children at the park with a friend, but the fact that there are friends AROUND would make going into labor at Target less mortifying.

Two more weeks (and 3 days BUT WHO’S COUNTING) until my due date and if my What To Expect app asks me one more time “Have you had the baby yet?” I’m going to set it on fire.

My Week(183) in iPhone Photos

Monday, May 5th, 2014

I have almost totally completely recovered from the Mom 2.0 Summit in Atlanta this weekend. The combination of standing/walking/dancing/flying made me swell up like a bullfrog and I was worried I might have overdone it, but things seem to be getting back to normal. But definitely no more travel for me until I have an outside baby.

Sunday:

sunday1

Furniture in an orchard. What, that’s not how you spend your weekends?

sunday2

Evan is “helping” her read a book. This definitely didn’t end well.

sunday3

STOP JUDGING ME, YOU ARE A CAT.

Monday:

monday1

I was very tempted to just throw that whole pile away, but I mostly put it away. Mostly.

monday2

Captain Barnacles and Peso to the rescue!

monday3

Who knew applesauce in a pouch was THAT delicious?

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Adorable shopping cart sharing.

tuesday2

Making herself at home.

tuesday3

We don’t ACTUALLY live at Target. My kids just get confused sometimes.

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Swim lesson shenanigans

wednesday2

Her side-eye is already perfect.

wednesday3

If this is what happens after a 30 minute swim class, maybe summer will involve LOTS of naps.

Thursday:

thursday1

Goodbye Providence…

thursday2

Hello Atlanta!

thursday3

Chocolate fountain = pregnant woman’s dream come true

Friday:

friday1

No YOU cried like 5 different times during the first 4 hours of Mom 2.0

friday2

I’ve never had such amazing food at a conference. Parmesan encrusted shrimp OMG.

friday3

Fancy hairs courtesy of the Dove suite

Saturday:

saturday1

High tea at the Ritz. Is this real life? (No)

saturday2

Fancy award ceremony is fancy

saturday3

My amazing, beautiful roommate Miranda who I miss so much already

I’ll write an actual conference post later (that will probably be mostly photos, duh) but it was an amazing experience. I had literally zero negative interactions with people – even people I would consider Kind Of A Big Deal on the internets – and loved every conversation I had. Even though right now the logistics of going next year (not knowing where we might be stationed, having a 10 month old) are overwhelming I already bought a ticket.

Now I am back to real life where I am responsible for butt-wiping and laundry and a severe lack of fried green tomatoes. But cuddling with the ginger babies makes me super glad to be back to life (back to reality).

I have a pain in my right side that I don’t THINK is an internal organ exploding, but if it could be. What I’m saying is, if you don’t see me on Facebook or Instagram at all tomorrow, maybe text me?

Sunday:

Devil’s Hopyard – either it was named after the time the devil was seen jumping around in the pools at the bottom of the falls or after a landowner named Dobble who had a farm near there.

It’s very warm.

A two photo shoot kind of day

They spent the full length of a movie like this. Unfortunately the movie was Equestria Girls.

Processed with VSCOcam

TV, screaming toddler, Facebook…and I wonder why it takes me FOREVER to get things done.

saturday3

Fall in a cookie – pumpkin, hazelnut spread, butterscotch chips. Unfortunately I don’t really like butterscotch and E doesn’t like pumpkin, so we can’t tell if these are actually delicious.

I secretly just want to sleep all day tomorrow, but we’re doing more fun stuff instead. Maybe I can sleep all day on the second of never. I’ve got a date with the elliptical trainer on Tuesday and that’s almost as good as napping. Especially because of the massage bed afterwards.

Last week of summer, first week of school! Except I just realized today Labor Day means no school for anyone tomorrow, so we can fit in one more beach/fun day before we start a regular schedule.

Sunday:

Apparently this is the only photo I took on Sunday. I can’t even remember Sunday. Did Sunday even happen?

Monday:

Nothing like a nuclear power plant to add to my scenic beach photos

I love this beach

The most adorable ice cream and candy store in the world

In this episode, Spiderman joins S.H.I.E.L.D. I had to Google to find out if that was accurate (it is).

wednesday3

Orientation is EXHAUSTING.

Thursday:

thursday1

Ready to go!

thursday2

The cat loves Caroline

thursday3

This is her “WE’RE GETTING CHEESEBURGERS!” face

Friday:

friday1

Playing “Tick-tock croc eats Captain Hook!” while we wait for the bus

friday2

She is loving our outside play time while we wait for the bus. It makes me feel bad we never use our (very tiny) front yard.

friday3

What do you wear when it’s 80 degrees?

Saturday:

saturday1

Craft store…

saturday2

…pretzel burger…

saturday3

…and Sherlock. PERFECT SATURDAY.

I’m so excited Evan likes school, the bus situation seems to be working out, and that when Caroline starts school on Tuesday I will be able to get back to a regular schedule for me too. I loved going to the gym last year, but totally failed during the summer. I need to get exercise back on my list of priorities, if only because I have to be in better shape to work as a photographer. Taking newborn photos is like doing 200 squats. I’m going to have buns of steel if people keep hiring me.
