In Real Life: Week 46

Hello everyone! I’m going to be honest… our week 46 was pretty lame. I have been sick for most of the week, so I’ve barely left the house and haven’t taken many pictures. But I’ll share what I do have, because hey, it’s real life.

We got some real rain this week. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit.

Jack’s actual birthday was on Tuesday. I know everyone says this, but it still amazes me that it’s been a year already. But, also cliche, I can hardly remember what life was like before him, so in many ways I can’t believe it’s only been a year. (And moms everywhere nod their heads.)

I have kind of assigned myself the role of work-birthday-celebration-organizer. This week I hosted the first of what I hope will be a monthly birthday potluck. Joe brought these awesome meatballs that had a surprise ingredient in the sauce… grape jelly!

I kind of inadvertently wound up with a Samsung tablet – lucky me! And even though I initially balked at the idea of using a coloring app, I’ve actually really been enjoying being able to use that side of my creative brain without having to pull out a book and all the pencils and the sharpener, etc, etc.

I was down for the count on Friday, and simply could NOT keep up with this kid. My house may never recover.

Especially since he is always into EVERYTHING.

It’s a good thing he’s cute.

Silver lining: I got to binge-watch The Deuce. I wish I was half as talented as Maggie Gyllenhaal.

And honestly? That’s it for this week. This is day #5 of not feeling well, and I still hardly feel like I’m getting better. Hopefully I’ll have more to share next week.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Much love,
