Stuff and Things (a day late): 7/3

It's still legal to write a blog post for a linkup a day late, right?

Linking up with Kristin and Joey

+ First things first, we found out last week that this little acrobat is going to be a boy! 

I'm pretty excited.  One of each?  We're going to be the ultimate perfect family.  Yes.  But also because, well, we've decided that we're going to stop here at two for now.  At least for planned little ones. 

+ Ellie is starting to talk in full sentences and she's not even 2.  Little girl is eating her Wheaties and drinking her milk.  Okay, she actually doesn't like milk, but society says that Wheaties and milk are the key to being strong and smart, right? 

She walks, runs, talks, pouts, shouts, screams, and knows what she wants.  She loves doing things if she's not forced to.  Put her in the lake without her instigating it?  No way, but let her splash herself and go in on her own?  She's all over it.

She still has her awesome curls and blue blue eyes.  Some say that their kids had curly hair and it went away when they cut it.  I'm never cutting it

+ I got a book from Blogging for Books in February and I STILL haven't finished it.  It just isn't that good.  Can I write that as a review?  I've read 4 other books since receiving this book.  I read The Book Thief (great), Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan (hilarious), Yes Please by Amy Poeller (also good), and The Girl on the Train (awesome).  I've also just started reading Something Borrowed by Emily Griffin.  Books are fun when you have time to read them and actually ENJOY them.

+ I'm currently putting off school planning, but I know it's going to bite me in the butt.  I have to plan a maternity leave (which includes planning out a Christmas concert for the sub while I'm gone) and I'm stalling because I know it's going to be a lot of work.  Yuck.  I think I'll just keep bouncing on my yoga ball and drinking iced tea.  That sounds more fun and productive.

On that note, nap time is over.  Until next time...


  1. Awww congrats! So happy for you! :)

  2. Congrats on a baby boy! How exciting!

    I'm school planning right now so I don't have to do it later this month..

    I got a book from Blogging for Books in February-ish and haven't read it either. Meh.

  3. A boy! Congrats :D

    I'm not school planning as much as I should either; I'm enjoying the summer while I can...including taking the time to read. The Girl on the Train is on my "to read" list...glad to hear you liked it!

  4. YAY boy!! That's my of each.

    I got a book from BoB back in February too, never read it, and then quit blogging, haha!

    You should read Orphan Train if you liked The Book Thief. Very good.

  5. Baby BOY!!!I'm so over the moon happy for you!

    I think I'm almost ready to start reading books again. I've been listening to audio books, but there's nothing like the actual tangible thing. I'll have to check those recommendations out.
