My sister Kate is the best. The bomb! Dot com! My fave! LYLAS (wait a second...)!! Basically, she has a really busy life with an energetic 14-month old, is in the middle of a move, a new job, and making her main man Mike puh-leased (a full-time job alone). But still, she surprised me--the new Mom (kind of... you know what I mean) who was recently feeling all down-and-out (waah, waah) that I didn't have much family close by to share Parker's every moment with--and she and her cute 'lil family drove up for Thanksgiving. She made my heart so happy. Seriously. Best friends that are also sisters are the best kind. Hear hear! Plus, Parker was kind of a bum the last time he and Quinn saw each other and I knew he could do better. When I found out they were coming I was all, "Parker, put your best foot forward this time, dammit! Last time you just laid there!"
We have matching strollers. Cute, I know. And sort of matching sweaters. Cute, I know. Or is it just getting weird and stupid now?
Mah tea. One of my favorites. Get yourself some of that pronto. It's yum cold too.
Catching up on the Occupy Wall Street latest. Duh, what else?
"Steve! There could be dog-poop in those leaves!"
"Bridget, it's natural."
(He's good for my psycho-self.)
Oh, and his hoot hat? Cause I know you're gonna ask. He pretty much wears it EVERY DAY thanks to Sarah who sent it to him. And Joy, who, ya know, made it.
Lindsey is obsessed with Kate and asked me if we could have an unofficial "God-parent" ceremony to which Kate and I replied, "YES." Isn't that sweet? And just so ya'll know, we're not replacing Kate and Mike with already existing God-parents... cause that'd be, um, wrong. I'm pretty sure Lindsey doesn't have any. Every gal needs herself some God-parents!
"Oh haaay Parker. Aren't you lookin' handsome today! Who's yo' Daddy?!"
I did not claim to eat healthy all the time. Onion rings, why you gotta be so dern good?!
And that was our weekend. Wahoo!
