That was a LONG time of me not blogging!!! Between kiddos being sick and Dave traveling a lot, I just have had no motivation to blog lately. But lots has been going on, so here's a little catch up. And some of my favorite things, since it's been a while since I've done that either :)

1. This backpack
Hendrix got this backpack at a birthday party (technically, I made it- since I helped my friend make all the backpacks for the party) This thing has been LOVED. He wears it everywhere. And if we are being honest, it's not MY favorite, but Hendrix's :)
See- it's been very loved. And dragged around on the cement at 5 different parks
2. FaceTime
Dave has been traveling quite a bit the last couple weeks. I am so glad that we can FaceTime almost every night. 
 Look how sweet this is. The kids have been so sweet and happy when Dave gets home from a trip. He's such a good daddy.
3. Lots of things to do.
I'm so glad that while Dave is gone, there are lots of parks and the beach and friends (and Target) so I have a way to pass the days quickly.

 4. This car
Am I alone in this? I see these all over town and LOVE them. Dave thinks I'm crazy and doesn't like them. But I'd take one :)

5. Cute packaging
I am such a sucker for good packaging (I learned it from Dave... he cares too). I haven't actually used this laundry soap yet, so I don't know if it's awesome. But I know the package is cute. And I love Method hand and dish soap, so I figured I'd give it a chance. 

 6. These blogs:
The Cloakroom at Victoria Station
Everyday Reading
I always base my favorite blogs off of which one I click on first when I open my google reader and have a bunch of blogs to catch up on. These two are actually two of my friends here- and they are both awesome. And sisters. How cool is that?
7. Scandal
Does anyone else watch this? I am totally addicted. I like to have a show that I watch by myself. Dave and I have a handful of shows that we always watch together, but I usually have a show that I watch when he's not around (like when he's traveling...) Usually I watch a super girly show that is light and easy. But I started this a week ago and I LOVE it.

I am on your list of favorites today! What an honor! I love reading your blog, too!

I'm so glad you did a blogpost. I was beginning to think you had given it up. I love the pics of the kids on the boardwalk, and Hendrix with a pirate patch and Veda snuggling. Let me know how you like that laundry soap.

I missed you. lol. I also love the Flex. Jake likes it too. We'll probably never get one. Oh well. They're cool inside too, with lots of room!

Oooo . . . scandal. That looks . . . scandalous! Never heard of it. Oh wait, I don't have a tv, that's why. I do love having my own "girlie" shows to watch when Jake isn't here though.

BEACH? I'm coming over.

I'm totally addicted to Scandal, too. Guilty pleasure, without the guilt because it's finally a show with a strong black female lead so it makes me feel like a good person for supporting it while I soak in all the dramaz.

You are so super nice.

And you are a rockstar for having three kids and holding down the fort alone.
