Coincidence or Conspiracy?

You decide.

So a few days ago, I ACCIDENTALLY cracked Darin’s favorite glass when I was mixing some hot water and cold water.

THEN, the next day, we are getting some breakfast, and Darin pulls out MY favorite glass (from romania!) and says “Oh, what happened to your glass, it’s got a crack in it.” LIKE HE DIDN’T HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT!

Coincidence? I think not. Revenge, my friends, it looks like revenge.

oh, p.s. Luke likes taking the couch cushions off and climbing all over, and last night he got stuck…
inside the back of the couch! Hilarious! He’s in chest deep!


thoughts on the now…

Well, as usual I am mostly posting about Luke, because he is my world and I find most of what he does to be amazing, hilarious, or down right cute.
I did NOT find the golf ball in the toilet too funny, but the next toilet trick made me laugh. He really listens when I tell him what can go in the toilet!

Also this is a daily occurrence that I finally took a picture of… the yogurt goatee!

By the way, Luke wanted to tell you what his favorite animal was at the zoo…
fish face
(that’s a fish face for ya, he won’t say fish, just makes the face!)
He is quite a busy boy, here he is helping me in the office. He must know that chaos, clutter, and mess elevate my blood pressure, so he finds ways to get me to visit the doctor more often (don’t worry I’m going on Monday, I’ll tell ya all about it)

We’ve had a few really nice days, so of course they have been spent outside. Here he is looking at airplanes, buses, or birds (he hears them ALL the time). I couldn’t catch him with Daddy’s hat on, but he looked really adorable.
hi bus!
And we’ve had a few rainy days, those seem SO LONG for BOTH of US! Coloring, games, chase, peekaboo… all boring when we could be outside, …I don’t care if I get wet says Luke, Mommy disagrees!

(he has ball and everything, let’s go blese! (please in Luke talk))
At least when Daddy comes home, there’s more entertainment. Luke loves his daddy, wrestling or cuddling!

Which brings me to my next topic, not Luke for a change, but my husband. I love him too. I am so grateful that he will cook dinner or wash dishes or put Luke to bed when its been a long day – and when it hasn’t. He is a smart man. Observant, knows what is needed. I am truly happily married and glad I’ve him to work with through the roller coaster ride we’re on! He takes joy in my little stories of my day, making it all seem important. and sometimes I need to feel important.
Speaking important things, somehow I got hooked on American Idol this season. And I really like Megan Corkrey… there I said it. I know many may disagree but I like her different sound. BUT I do love Danny Gokey, fabulous. Adam Lambert really is in a league of his own, but I don’t want him to win, talented but not the talent I enjoy. The rest take it or leave it, oh but I was happy that Michael left, just not strong enough to compete I believe, and well, I didn’t really enjoy him either.
One final thought for ya, I can’t wait to have a big BBQ and invite everyone I know over, so I was gonna clean out my dad’s old grill and guess what I found inside…
birds nest
yeah, a bird’s nest. I guess it was a cold winter for us in Tennessee, squirrels moving into Darin’s engine, birds nesting in the grill… I just can’t figure out how the bird got in and out! No BBQs until the eggs hatch, I’m not gonna have their death hanging over my head.


We got a season pass to the Nashville zoo and decided to take our first visit. Luke and I headed off after lunch to see how long he would last. I took a few notes for next time…
1. take pictures of Luke at the zoo
2. have better treats to bribe Luke to ride in the stroller, or let him push me in the stroller
3. binoculars would make it more fun for him to “look” at animals
4. if it’s just a nice day, it will be 20 degrees hotter at the zoo because of all the people (don’t wear pants ever)
5. hats, for everyone!
All in all he really enjoyed himself and I got in a lot of walking! Luke definitely takes after me though…a serious people watcher, he kept getting distracted by everyone around him. And of course, he gave them that “who do you think you are” look! Yay for zoo passes. I can bring a friend, anyone wanna come?

Hip Hooray!

Just a quick update on my adorable box of giggles.
Christina gave him this bear and he loves to wrestle with it, hug it, kiss it. Adorable!
He is quite a little fireball these days. He obviously thinks the more he waves his arms, the faster he is running!
He is the commander, totally in charge. He knows how to turn on the Wii and X-box, put the games in and out, change the source of the TV to the Wii. He also turns the TV off when we aren’t giving him enough attention.

Snack time seems to be about every hour. He loves bananas and yogurt. He also tries everything I give him, doesn’t always like it, but at least tries!
He talks all the time, but mostly about airplanes. He hears them, and loves to look for them.
Oh and he laughs… a lot. I love it!
