Found at my house:
Stick (literally- from a tree) wrapped in yarn in my Pots and Pans Cupboard
Plastic baggie of Hair ties and clips in the refrigerator
Mini tube of toothpaste stuck in the side of the car seat covering
Trains, socks, leaves, toys, remote controls, hair ties, beads, markers, crayons, pennies stuffed in the couch cushions.
Lily (on our way down the stairs this morning): I'm not wearing any underwear.
Mommy: What?? Why??
Lily: I didn't put any on.
Mommy: Well you need underwear. We'll put some on when we get to school.
Lily: Why do I have to wear underwear?
Mommy: Uhh..because (think fast Sarah....)just because ok. You're going to wear underwear. Period.

Since I drove all the way to Bellingham to pick her up (don't ask!) I decided we should do something fun to make the long drive home a little easier. We headed down Chuckanut Drive (I love the views especially in the fall!!) and stopped at Larrabee Park. I haven't been there forever. Lily liked it but the tide was way in and there wasn't too much beach to explore so we played mostly on their little playground.
The drive was beautiful but I must say I prefer being the passenger rather than the driver on that road. All those tight lanes and narrow curves freak me out a bit and I didn't get to see all the pretty views because I was concentrating so hard on staying in my lane. But it was fun anyway and I'm glad we went.

Google Keyword Searches:
"Shake the sand from my flip flops quote"- Must have hit because of my embarrassing sand in the underwear incident
"wshhh"- ??? I have no idea- but it's kind of funny- I think...
I haven't been able to do much blogging or even thinking about blogging lately for a couple reasons:
1) Lily's birthday party is this weekend and I have been a crazy lady cleaning and crafting and preparing...you know the drill.
2) I hurt my wrist at work : ( Too much typing I guess and it hurts pretty much anytime I use the mouse or type with my right hand. The DR says lay off the typing so my recreational use of the computer at home has basically been non-existent
3) I'm still reading the Outlander series and read it (I'm on the third book) basically any chance I get. The author is supposed to be at Third Place Books in October doing a reading and a signing her new book- I am so in!
The two (or three) things that make the end of summer (almost) bearable:
1) Pumpkin Pie/Bread
2) New Season of Survivor and CSI
PS- Briana you're the best. If you hadn't told me Survivor was on tonight I would have missed it and been very sad. Russell is an actor I think...don't you? Like Sugar was (and who knows who else). And thanks for TIVO-ing CSI for me! I'd never see it otherwise. Like I said- you're the best!
No pictures today because my camera memory card is full and I haven't uploaded them to be able to take more but....it'll all work out since next week I'm sure I'll have lots from Lily's B-day to post.
Must...stop...typing....and go to bed....or read just one more chapter....

I know its not the best picture- she was sleeping at a really wierd angle and I couldn't get her face.
Dad and Di brought over Maddie's old mattress and I set it up with her new sheets and pillow and comforter as a surprise. She was super excited when she came home and saw it. She immediately started jumping on on the bed and snuggling the blankets. Last night I sat next to her and read stories then laid down with her until she fell asleep- then, gloriously, hopped into my own bed and slept all night by myself!!!! Well- other than the fact that I woke up everytime she rolled over and made a noise to check and make sure she was ok- oh and then floyd came and curled up with me on my pillow. Haha. Very funny Floyd. He was mocking me- I'm sure!

PS- I'd probably have more cool search terms if more people were following my blog (read: boosting my self esteem). So for all you out there reading but not wanting to be my friend and follow my blog-help a girl out. Seriously. I need all the laughs I can get.

A girl who probably needs to move to Hawaii for heaven's sake. Or anywhere tropical.
Every once in awhile I catch her in motion just the right way and I love it - that moment of movement frozen in time- 'cause I swear this child never stops moving.
She really wanted to go in the wading pool- even though it wasn't super warm. By the end she was shivering so much but still didn't want to get out. Only when they started draining the water did she finally give in.
Now on to planning a spectacular finish to the year...first up Lily's 4th birthday- then more birthdays, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and it'll be Christmas before I can even blink I'm sure. Time really flies- especially when you're busy (and having fun)!
