Life Lately

It's been a few days (okay, almost a week) since I've posted anything, so I thought I would keep you guys up-to-date on things.

We recently bought a dishwasher! You know, the ones with the wheels on it. I'm loving it! Now I am not the only dishwasher around here, and I can actually polish my nails and have the color last a couple days without it chipping off right away, awesome! And the really awesome part is that Chuck bought it at a thrift store for only $35. It's a little used but I just rinse the dishes really well before I put them in and they come out pretty clean.

Isaac loves the dishwasher too, and isn't his bed-head delicious?

Last weekend Chuck and I went out for a date night and we stayed over at a hotel while Grandma watched the kids. Holla!  (does anyone even say that anymore?)

 It was amazing, I forgot was it was like to just be together and enjoy each other's company without the kids crying, getting up for night feedings (because yes, Isaac still does that, that whole sleeping through the night doesn't usually happen), and waking up really early the next morning.  We will definitely be doing that again, but not soon enough.

(sorry for poor cell phone quality, I forgot my camera)

Sad to say that whole giving up coffee for Lent was short lived.  The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. I still am giving up soda though, and I don't seem to crave it that much anymore, which is good because I know that soda is really bad for you. I'm sorry Jesus, but I need my coffee to make it through the day of dishes, laundry, and littles screaming and pulling on me. I think I will give up coffee during holy week, maybe.

We've been working on getting over a cold for a couple weeks, it's lingering.

Still waiting for spring here. It's supposed to be warming up this weekend, like, in the 40s or something, so that would be alright.

 How's life been treating you?


  1. Congrats on the new dishwasher, and being able to get away! Love the bed-head look! Hope little L feels better soon!

  2. Yay for a dishwasher! We need a new one in the worst way.
    A few months ago the hubs and stayed in a hotel while Grandma watched the little man. It was GLORIOUS! Good for you on getting out and having some real adult time.

  3. I love the first picture!

    I know... Brady has his jokes about me being the dishwasher, but he pretty much helps a lot since I have school. I am sure it comes handy when you have little ones :) I think then, I would want one, too ;)

    I am so glad the two of you were able to get out for some alone time. I think those nights are always needed. Yay for Grandma (and you guys, too).

    Hope Lucy gets well soon.

    Not sure if I could give up coffee either.. Pop is easy. You really don't crave it much.

  4. So glad to hear you got to have a date night, and an overnight one at that! Great. And his bedhead is soooo cute.

  5. I love his bedhead! And what an awesome date!
