What I Love Wednesday

I don’t own the rights to any of these. All the credits can be found on my Pinterest.

Today I was getting all misty on Pinterest when I saw the pictures that have been going around of the “real” Up house.  I love that movie!  The hubs gave it to me as part of my wedding gift, and to this day I can’t see it without crying buckets (not sweet, misty tears but sort of gulpy, emotional sobs).  I see a lot of  my hubby and me in the sweet marriage montage at the beginning and I am in love with the way they portray true love in the movie.  One of my all-time favorites.


Crazy about this idea!  Check out what everyone else loves at Lollipops.

It’s All I Have to Bring Today

It’s all I have to bring today –
This, and my heart beside –
This, and my heart, and all the fields –
And all the meadows wide –
Be sure you count – should I forget
Some one the sum could tell –
This, and my heart, and all the Bees
Which in the Clover dwell.

-Emily Dickinson

We gave out bookmarks at our wedding, and on half of them we had that poem printed.  I love it so.

Rice Cereal Isn’t All It’s Cracked Up To Be

“The Meltdown”: a pictorial essay in eight parts.

Mommy, I am super grumpy and out of sorts today.  Maybe I should just have my usual dinner and go to bed.

What’s that, little daughter?  Never mind, mommy is just stirring up your very first solid food!  So exciting!

I don’t know why you people insist on this giraffe motif.  I thought I was clear that I prefer aquatic mammals.

Alright, one more bite, but then I want to go to bed.

Yeah, you’re right: it’s delicious.  Are we done now?

Great!  All done.  Off to bed.

Daddy, what are you doing?  Mom, what is he doing? I thought we said that was the last—

I think everyone had sufficient warning.

I definitely fell down during my lunch run today.  There I am, huffing and puffing along, and –this is the weird part– I actually thought to myself “wouldn’t it be funny if I fell down and skinned my knees?  It would be just like when I was 8.”  Note to my fellow runners/klutzes: don’t think things like that while you’re running.  You will will them into being.  Just like Oprah says (does she say that?  Seems like something she would say).

My toe clipped the edge of something (an uneven sidewalk, my other shoe, a stray piece of grass, air … we’ll never know) and I skidded, palms-first, onto the sidewalk. Thankfully, a car blew by right at that moment, so I know my finest moment will forever live in the memory of that passerby.   I popped back up oh-so-casually: nothing wrong here, I’m good at running!  And kept jogging, hands now festively adorned with blood and bits of sidewalk.

The moral of the story?  Oh, you want a moral?  Um, avoid trippy things?  Wait, no: think positively!  Or maybe it’s just that I wanted an excuse to post this sweet note I got from the hubs reminding me to deposit a check I’ve been carrying around for a month and also, of the important stuff:


Who cares about falling?  That guy’s great.
