You Could Be a Farmer in Those Clothes

Ten points to the first person to identify the movie quote!

We finally got the warm, sunny weather I was so tired of hearing about from my Mid-Western friends so now I’ll bore you by talking about it to. Spring in Connecticut doesn’t so much bloom as EXPLODE. One day there are a few crocuses in the garden and tiny buds on all the trees and then WHAM flowers and leaves everywhere. It’s fantastic. I have to physically restrain myself from running out to my local garden center and spending hundreds of dollars on plants and seedlings I have no idea how to grow. My thumb is best described as a light yellow – I don’t kill every plant I come in contact with but only the strong survive.

Baby Evan and I took advantage of the weather yesterday by lounging on our porch all afternoon, doing out best redneck country folk impressions. I opened up the house, blocked off the stairs and let him have the run of the place.

My mom gave him the overalls for his birthday. Let it be known she did include a shirt at the time.

But Baby Evan and I agree, shirts are for suckers.

They both watched the neighborhood kids walk home from school with rapt attention. The thought that one day Brutus might be watching out the front door for Baby Evan to get home made me teary.

P.S. One of the comments I get about my blog a lot is “How do you find time to write every day!?” The answer is of course, I neglect my child. Just kidding. But I do neglect a lot of housework, laundry and pretty much all my other interests until I’ve written my post for the day. It is, however, IMENSELY helpful that Baby Evan can be fairly easily entertained, either with toys (to throw on the floor), food (to throw on the floor) or as seen below, my toes.

    It’s not “Sixteen Candles,” is it?

    I envy you your glorious porch!! I have a tiny apartment with no patio.

    Also, I LOVED your party pictures, but didn’t have time to leave comments about how awesome, amazing and talented you are. When is your party ideas book coming out?

    I really wanted those 10 points Sara.

    Super cute.

  4. I too envy your porch. Unlike most apartment dwellers, we are lucky to have a courtyard we can use. Unfortunately, it’s ALL concrete so a bit ouchy for the bub. But the park is close and there’s lots of grass to fall down on there.

    We have a patio (wish it was a porch) but until we clean it, I can’t use it with Paloma. She tries to eat EVERYTHING and frequently succeeds.

    My first thought is Clueless. THen I thought..could be Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I know it’s one of those annoying valley-girl charactered chick flicks. :D

    We’ve gone from 80º weather to 55º weather. Good times.
