My Week(212) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

I did a terrible job of taking photos this week. Terrible. It turns out when I’m busy I forget to pull out my phone and take photos of things like the grocery shopping or our playdate or laundry (ALL THE LAUNDRY). We did have a pretty exciting week though.

Sunday:

I’m pretty sure this photo makes up for all the other ones this week being boring.

Today I went to a photo shoot and brought ZERO children with me. I came home and said “Linc, I missed you!” and then realized it was the first time in his whole 4 months of life I have EVER missed him. Because he has never been more than like 100 feet away from me. Having my husband FINALLY home is pretty useful.

We still don’t know what our plans are for Thanksgiving, so next week’s post could either be nice and early or super late again. I basically care zero perfect about this holiday and am just counting days until I can put up the tree without feeling like a jerk.

Some mom friends and I took the kids down to Bluff Point for a hike since we didn’t have school on Tuesday. 5 moms and 11 kids. When we got to the beach all the big kids went off on an adventure while the babies hung out on the sand and ate rocks. It was so nice to be out of the house in the fresh (warm) air ALL DAY…plus the gingers all slept amazingly well last night.

How Does Your AeroGarden Grow?

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Thank you to Scotts and AeroGarden for sponsoring this post and giveaway!!

I got an email from my friends at MiracleGro asking if I might be interested in an AeroGarden for review. I ignored it.

Want to know what happened to my last houseplants? Dead.

Wondering how long my cute indoor herb planter lasted? Not even long enough to sprout.

Ask me how many tomatoes I got from my garden this year. NONE. (And yes, I did plant tomatoes.)

But they followed up. And it looked so cute. And after I explained “NO REALLY, IT HAS TO BE FOOLPROOF” they assured me it is. So far, they’re right.

My Week(209) in iPhone Photos

Monday, November 3rd, 2014

I’m going to go against popular opinion here and say I LOVE the extra hour we get with fall back. I was exhausted at 10 pm last night so I went to sleep, and then woke up on my own 15 minutes before the alarm. It felt positively leisurely. I have no idea if my children got an extra hour of sleep, because they know better than to come wake me up unless the house is on fire.

Sunday:

Being awesome at the aquarium

His favorite part of the aquarium is the Titanic, which is creepier when he’s dressed like a shark

I’m only sort of kidding.

Although I still care of his favorite thing. Look at that baby smile.

The weekend was not at ALL relaxing due to a broken computer and a broken forehead, so I’m playing as much catch up as I can today. (Both are much better today, fingers crossed they stay that way.) I have zero photo shoots scheduled this week as of right now, but FIVE blog posts to write. Considering I can’t even get this one posted in a timely manner, it’s amazing anyone still reads. Maybe no one does. Maybe you’re all spambots. Or my mother. Hi Mom!

Swim With The Fishes

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

The aquarium always does fun stuff for Halloween and we’ve been going since Evan was a baby. This year the costume dress up weekend was “Pirate and Princess” themed. Unfortunately, I spend a bazillion dollars on costumes that are not pirates or princesses but were TOTALLY aquarium appropriate…so the kids dressed up anyway.

Although they weren’t eligible for the pirate/princess costume contests, I can promise you Evan won Unofficial Best Costume, just based on the fact that EVERY person we saw commented on it. Because it’s AMAZING.

p.s. The weird spacing thing on photos with captions makes me crazy but I cannot fix it so try not to let it drive you crazy too.

There’s an art installation set up about ocean pollution. This one was adorable/sad.

He’s goldfish. FYI.

Evan saw the pirate and yelled “JACK SPARROW!” and the pirate said “CAPTAIN. It’s CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow!” This was like the 5th time we ran into him just walking around, obviously they’re BFF’s now.

This is the best I can do for family photos right now.

halloween at mystic aquarium-16

Sorry Linc.

Then we went home and painted/carved pumpkins, something we never managed to get around to last year. Painting is genius, since carving is such a PITA.
