Outside my window... rain... gloomy, but also desperately needed.
I am thinking... about Elise's dentist appointment this morning, wondering if this will be the time they tell us she needs to head to an orthodontist.
I am thankful for... J.C. not being the one who broke his collarbone this weekend at Snowshoe. One of his buddies did... poor guy.
From the kitchen... cinnamon chip bread that Elise won while bobbing for apples this weekend at an apple festival. Her apple had a star on the bottom, so she got to choose a loaf of bread. Yum!
I am creating... still working on Elise's new room... we bought a few odds and ends this weekend.
I am going... to Dallas later this week with Addie and Elise to visit my parents.
I am reading... Nanny Returns by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus... not loving this book, but I think I will finish it. I need to pick up my hold at the library before our trip though.
I am hoping... our travel goes smoothly. Addie is not at a particularly good travel age right now.
I am hearing... the girls eating breakfast.
Around the house... clutter. Always.
One of my favorite things... the song "U Smile" by Justin Bieber. Yes, I see you rolling your eyes... both at the spelling of "U" and at the fact that I have the same taste in music as my Justin Bieber-crazed 7 year old. Have you listened to that one though? He sounds like old school Michael Jackson... like classic Jackson 5 Michael, not the creepy, plastic-surgery-addicted, Peter-Pan-worshipping, nutjob Michael. Seriously... it is a good song!
A few plans for the rest of the week.... a celebration with coworkers, book club, and a 4 a.m. trip to the airport with a 9 year old drama queen who isn't a morning person and a toddler. Yeah... that should be fun.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing... the prize winning apple!
