I meant to post a photo of the Valentines Jovi and I made a few weeks ago… You know.. when it was still relevant. But I have been pulled in a billion different directions lately and frankly have not had the time to take many photos of Life, let alone post them.
Cute, right? I wish I could take credit for the idea, especially when the moms of her classmates were OMG!!!-ing over them. But no, it was a pinspiration I saw months ago and vowed to do myself, eventually. I like how they came out.
Apparently my dad had one of these hanging outside of his office as a “Who I Stay Safe For” motivator, and someone came along after a few days of it being on display and stole the sucker. For some reason the image of a grown man, hard-core miner sucking on a lollipop just cracks me up. But instead of taking the photo down (because I mean.. weird pose otherwise, right?) my mom bought a huge tub of mini-tootsie pops so he can refill it and Jovi can “hand” out suckers all the live-long day. Too funny.
I don’t have too much to say these days. Life is good. Jovi is slowly getting back to her normal self (it’s been a challenge the last few weeks! I thought my kid was broken.). We are gearing up for some vacations and other adventures in the coming months. And me? I’m still waiting. Waiting waiting waiting… I really hate waiting. But that’s me these days. Just sitting over here twiddling my thumbs and things. I will elaborate in the near future (hopefully) but for now I am caught in that weird place of limbo.
So to distract you from the suspense, here are some pictures of my lovelies!
Here is a time lapse for you:
A couple days after the fun cupcakes I was in the kitchen doing something and Kyle had stepped outside. The door was halfway open and the girls were loitering in and out of the house. I (mistakenly) thought they were occupied and playing. But no. Aven found an ink pad of Jovi’s.
Also, I found a new love of my life. Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter.
Have you tried it? No? DO IT NOW. Immediately. It is this creamy deliciousness that tastes like cookies but is spreadable like peanut butter. It’s good on everything. Apples, waffles, crackers, pancakes, right out of the jar with a spoon…. I’m going to bake with it this weekend. Except I sort of don’t want to because then I might run out before I go back to Reno. DISTRESS!
