The Good: The Dude's 2nd Birthday. He turned 2 and it was awesome:
|Mexican food! Best Birthday Ever! Except for that sombrero. Screw that hat.|
The Bad: We spent a good chunk of his day driving to Pittsburgh and wrangling 2 kids in Ikea:
Had to be done. We had some things to return (most notably a sink that was the wrong size) and other things to pick up. We survived. And our daughter got to unleash her inner designer, straight up insisting that we get orange towels for the new bathroom. Ok then.
The Good: The real reason we were in Pittsburgh was for our nephew's baptism:
The Insane: I also had a birthday. 33. I expected it to suck considering that it was a Wed. and I had both kid's well baby doctor's visits that day. Boo hiss.
|Happy Birthday! You get to take your kids in for shots!|
|MEATBALL PIZZA????? THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER!!!|
|Except maybe not to share my ice cream cake.|
The Bad but also kindof Good: Painting. So much Painting:
|Not this kind.|
And then went home and did some more painting:
|A brief preview. More on the insanity that was our color selection process later.|
The So Very Bad: Our flooring has been delayed. It was supposed to be in last Tuesday. It's still not in and won't be for another week. I... yeah. Furious doesn't even begin to describe. Not only is it delayed but we had to pick an entirely different product. I spent buckets of time yelling at people this week. Exhausting. Interestingly enough once I tweeted about how frustrated I was all of a sudden I got some results. Amazing the power of social media!
The Crazy Good: Our carpet is in! Installed and fantastic!
|Message I left on the floor under the carpet for whoever pulls it up.|
The Insane: I am 33 weeks pregnant. I'm putting this one in the insane column because we? ARE SO NOT EVEN CLOSE TO READY. I mean it's ridiculous. In 7 weeks we will have a baby and I don't even have a single onesie accessible let alone washed and ready to clothe a small child. The crib is still firmly occupied by a 2 year old. We have no room prepared. All of the baby gear needs dug out of storage and washed. And there's some big ticket things that we just straight up don't have (AHEM CARSEAT) And... I can't even really think about any of it until the basement is done. I've been telling the baby that by the time they get here Mommy and Daddy will have their shit together. I AM LYING.
The Even Better: We took a mini getaway to Geneva-on-the-lake. It was AMAZING. Full post on our trip coming. Until then I'll just leave you with a Lake Erie Sunset picture:
