//We met our friends’ new baby on Saturday and she is perfect. How can babies even be that soft? We also finally met their [now rather large] pup and now I go back and forth between wanting a baby and a puppy. As I can’t even keep a houseplant alive, I should probably start with the latter. //
// With my friend Rachel visiting, we headed up to Union Market after church. I broke tradition from my normal French toast bagel and hit up the Korean tacos… followed by the empanada place… topped off with gelato. All glorious decisions.//// Espresso art is just one of those things that makes me inexplicably happy. Another thing is glitter polish that changes colors in the sun (see below), both of which are featured in this picture.////Despite the fact that it is snowing today and back to cold, yesterday was sunny and almost warm. I had some work that took me into the Library of Congress in the morning (why have I never gone in before??? Colors! Tiles! Yes!), and then spent a little time loving the Capitol. And yes, we wore matching outfits, and yes, James judged us for it. //// It’s been years since I went skating, but on Monday afternoon we hit the rink out at Georgetown. James is basically a skating champ, but I just tried to avoid being taking out by those kids with the penguin pushing cart things. Also, that’s James’ scarf I’m wearing and I had a pretty hard time giving it back. It’s like a cozy blanket that went perfectly with that middle aged mom sweater I’m rocking.//
So long, long weekend.
Middle aged mom sweater? Hmm…I think I have about ten of those.
Because they are sooooooooooo cozy!!!!!!!!
From someone who also can’t keep a house plant alive but has two kids…go ahead and start with the baby! You will be much more motivated to care for a baby than a plant, and the baby will let you know if he needs something too! Maybe if house plants could cry to tell me they are thirsty I’d do a better job keeping them alive..
Good to know! : )
always love your post and they make me want to run to DC (as soon as the cold weather ends)! btw… I AM a middle-aged mom and I AM actually today wearing a version of the middle-age mom sweater of which you speak… 🙂
I’m pretty sure that my mom has one almost identical to the one I’m wearing in these pictures. I used to always make fun of it and then one day I was like THIS IS AMAZING!!!
Love it. Very cute weekend! Yummy, Pretty and fun!
Start a family- it’s awesome! I have two children so far- my houseplants never live that long either, but my babies are doing great. You may be interested in my post on trusting God and having babies wp.me/p3MeKt-1X
Love the espresso art too. My friend used to do Burberry stripes on a cappuccino with chocolate and cinnamon- it was a thing of beauty.
Wow — I would love to see that!
Good to know that there is still hope for my future babies, even as I amass a plant graveyard!
you and James make the US capital look impressive standing infront ot it.
Thanks mom! : )
Love that glitter changing color nail polish! Where did you find that & what brand is it?!
It is Ruby Wing Color Changing Nail Polish and the color is “ride ’em cowgirl.” Enjoy! : )
