C and I have been thinking for a little bit now about getting a puppy sister for Grover (although probably not an actual puppy). I found this princess last night, and now I'm in love.

Don't her eyes just implore you to take her home?
We'll see though. I sort of have this weird mom guilt re: taking Grover's only-child-dom away from him. Is that weird? That's weird, right?

My dad sent this to me today, and it made me laugh.

Totally true

Also, my May Recommendations are up today over at Life According to Steph. Go check them out!!

an odd weekend

First of all, let me say that this weekend was absolutely amazing. Got lots of work done, and still had lots of time to relax and hang out with my husband. But there were a couple of weird (unrelated) things that happened...

screen-free week -- the end

Here are the results from Screen-Free Week. Not great, but not terrible either. Not sure that I'll ever do it again (at least not for a whole week), but it was a good experience.

mid-week randomness

This is what's on my mind today:
  • Screen-free week is equal parts awesome and kindof a drag. It's why I haven't really been around this week (oops). Don't worry, I'm working on a recap to share on Sunday.
  • I can't believe my baby sister is going to be gone in less than 2 months. This is NOT acceptable. In a way, I'm sort of grateful to her for giving me this all-important parenting practice. Hopefully I'll remember it when my own kids grow up and move away. [As a side note, I'm medium terrified of having to deal with my mother when Haley moves.]
  • Selling shit on eBay is sometimes awesome. Yesterday, I sold my old-ass Kindle for $83. What?!
  • I really love the library. I mean, books and movies for free? Don't mind if I do! However, I do wish that there was a branch closer to my house. (Honestly, it's not all that far. I'm just really lazy.)
  • I've just started working on a project at work that I've been dreading ever since I was voluntold for it. I'm secretly kindof enjoying it now that it's actually happening. Perhaps I'm finally figuring out what I want to do when I grow up...
  • I can't wait to go meet my friend Jayne's brand new baby this weekend. He's got a mushy face, and I'm loving it.

What's going on in your world today?

screen-free week

So yesterday I was in a staff meeting and one of my coworkers mentioned that she had gotten a note from her daughter's daycare saying that it was "Screen-Free Week" and to please eliminate their kids' screen time for the week. She was really pretty indignant about it, but I was intrigued. Apparently, this is an actual thing, not just something at her daycare.

spring cleaning

We've already established that I'm crazy and working on creating a room for a baby that's not even conceived yet. This is yet another installment of the crazy. Feel free to shake your head and move on if you want. :)

4 weeks fit challenge -- go(al) time

I was excited to see the link-up that Erin and Kristin are hosting this month-- since I hung up my running shoes a few weeks ago, I know that I need to get myself into a groove of exercise before I return permanently to my sloth-like ways (although this week's bout of strep throat didn't help that).

loan progress -- 05.01.14

Undergrad: $0
Law School: $37,205.33

Yeah, it's been awhile since I've done one of these. Don't worry, I haven't been totally sucking (although I certainly have sucked a little).
