seven things right now

IMG_8864 (1)IMG_8858IMG_8885

quilt made by the talented Chloe 🙂

1: Brian and I finished our taxes (and it wasn’t even the 14th!) We celebrated with a bowl of the most delicious (and addicting) popcorn ever. Recipe coming soon.

2: Ellie slept the entire night in her crib. Did you hear me, the entire night! And she went to bed at 8 o’clock. For a girl that likes to stay up late, this is big. Oh, so big! I think it calls for a cake, party, you name it! 😉

3: Speaking of sleeping, I have a husband that sleepwalks and a daughter that sleep crawls. I live with a bunch of crazies!!

4: Two more weeks until I am finished with the semester. I almost made it, and it hasn’t been half bad either! Wahoo!

5: My little brother leaves on his mission in just over a month. I was watching the segments on the MTC during General Conference and goodness gracias, they got me again! Cue the waterworks! Man, I’m going to miss him! 🙂

6: Every time I turn around, Ellie is in a new location. Behind the couches, in the other room, going for the bathroom, it’s crazy! Still technically not crawling, but she has her little scoot, inchworm, slide thing down! And, she’s been practicing her downward dog, pretty sure she’s 100 times better at yoga that I ever will be!

7: I used a lot of exclamation marks in the post and I’m too lazy to edit any of them out! 😉

    She is getting such round, happy cheeks. I'm sure she's sleeping so good because she is scooting all over the house, that's a real workout. I love the quilt Chloe made, looks so springy and colorful in your yard. xoxoxo hugs & kisses

    Really though, she is so darn cute! Taxes are the worst. I'm glad you guys celebrated with popcorn. I'll be looking for the recipe!!

    I like all of these things. But especially 1 and 2! We finished our taxes last week (we had them done by someone) and I felt so proud we actually got it done with a couple weeks to spare!

    And what a good girl! So proud of Miss Ellie!

    I love this post – such fun updates. And isn't this sleeping-all-night-long thing miraculous?? Olivia is doing it, too! Three cheers for us (okay and the babes)!

  • Unknown

    Yay for almost being done with the semester! I'm almost done too–we can do it!

  • Ashley

    So awesome that Ellie slept through the night! Don't you feel like a new person now with all the rest?!

    While my brother was on his mission, every sign of something mission related set the waterworks off!
