Mike and I have a new favorite snack. Slice up some Honeycrisp apples. Dip in caramel. Dip in chopped pecan bits. It’s pretty much a caramel apple that is oh so much easier to eat. Thanks to my mom and Kelly for helping me think this one up. Mmmmm Fall goodness! Also, Mike introduced me to a great new wine. It’s called Harbor Red by Good Harbor. It’s a Michigan wine, and it only costs $10! You can find it at Meijer for you Midwest folk. Mike and I love wine; we went to Napa for our honeymoon. While this isn’t a high-end vintage, it is something that we can really enjoy with our dissected version of caramel apples.
I lost my favorite earrings some time ago in the past. I say “some time” because if I knew when I lost them I would have found them sooner…I think. Anyway, I have been praying like a church lady (which I am) to St. Anthony to find these earrings. My mom told me Wednesday morning that she had a dream I found them while repainting my jewelry box (which I was planning to do that morning). Lo and behold, there they were. Right in the back of the box. Sneaky suckers. St. Anthony FTW!
And, here are some pictures of the jewelry box — before and after…using my new photo skills again. The first picture was after we started sanding it. I forgot to take one before that because I was too excited! The second is the after picture. Duh. You know how before and after works, right?
I miss my brother. There. I said it. I wish he lived in Michigan, but I am so proud of him. He is doing so well out in Cali. He travels to China all the time for work. Last time, he brought back a whole bunch of cool scarves for me! But, I just want him to come home and meet my daughter. I miss you, brudder.
Why did the hipster burn his mouth on the coffee? Because he drank it before it was cool.
On Tuesday, Ellen laughed at me! Her first laugh :) I knew I was funnier than Mike! Also that day, my twin came to visit me. Ellen was so confused. Here is a picture of us. I think that is me on the left; I don’t know though.
I took Ellen to my cousin Mady’s volleyball game on Monday. You’d think after all of the volleyball I played in my life I would remember how loud buzzers and whistles are in an echo-y gymnasium. Baby girl FLIPPED OUT! Poor Ellen. So, I watched the game from the hallway while Ellen finally napped and I sat on the nasty floor. Then she got hungry, so, of course, I fed her while people gave me the stink eye. Get over it people. I know what’s under your clothes too. Anyway, Mommy is still learning how to integrate a baby into her life apparently. I’ll get there.
