12 bullet bulletin (part deux)

Monday, July 23, 2012

It seems my blogging break may be turning into something a bit more permanent. Life has become more productive now that I'm just living it instead of living it then blogging about it. That's not to say I don't miss it or you and that I won't be back in September, but right now I'm enjoying my summer laptop free. My relationship with the iPhone is an entirely different story; so if you wanna keep tabs on our daily shenanigans, check us out on Instagram or follow us on Facebook.

And now for a Twelve Bullet Bulletin:

{ 1 } Gabe took his first steps this afternoon (a day before his 10 month birthday). He looks like a walking cabbage patch... as if he wasn't freak enough already.

{ 2 } I put both kids in daycare so I could deep clean the house and I got as far as the bathroom. The good news is that our grout is so clean you can eat off it {cause we all eat off bathroom floors} and I owe it to the bleach & baking soda concoction I borrowed from Pinterest.
1 part bleach : 3 parts baking soda
* brush on paste . wait 5 mins . scrub . wipe . VOILA! *
{ 3 } I've been researching Disney cruises for my 30th birthday... you know, for the kids ;)

{ 4 } This is quite possibly the coolest thing I have ever laid eyes on and of course I want one...

{ 5 } Season 6 of 'Dexter' is on pre-order, we just finished watching all 50 something episodes of 'Mad Men' (ermahgerd!) and I'm thinking of jumping on the 'Walking Dead' train, thoughts?

{ 6 } Unsupervised Saige went a bit scissor happy crazy and took top secret snips out of her soccer bag, curtains and HAIR!! 
apparently somebody wanted bangs
{ 7 } I rejoined the gym - 3 years later - and am surprisingly loving it. I know "ew" right? I don't know what I'm enjoying more, my 6:30 pm Centergy class or the fact that Trev has to put both kids to bed. I thought given my dancer background I'd be better at Zumba but no.such.luck. ain't nothing sexy 'bout these hips.

{ 8 } The home addition is finallly a go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! yes that many exclamation points were entirely necessary. Doesn't it feel like I've been talking about this forever? Maybe because I have; by mid-August we should have a giant hole in our backyard and I couldn't be giddier.  

{ 9 } Hard to believe these photos were taken almost a year apart on the same lake, Sugar Lake...
a last minute camping trip with good friends: Dean, Bobo and their not-so-little-but-definitely-adorable puppy London will go down in relaxation history. We scored a lakefront site {unheard of for a Friday afternoon} and while I lost count of the number of s'mores I consumed, Saige ran around with her gaggle of friends and Gabe went on the second tube ride of his life {his first happened in utero 3 weeks before his due date, true story}. Two highlights from the weekend included Saige leaping into the VERY frigid water with little to no hesitation and me sitting on a deserted beach watching the sunrise with my little man. It may be the only time in my existence that I'll be thankful for a 4:45 am wake up call.

{ 10 } I'm on the hunt for a 3 {maybe 4} panel sliding glass door. I want  a wall of windows leading out to our soon-to-be covered back patio. It only took me 8 years to realize garden doors aren't for me.

{ 11 } Remember this?

Well rumour has it {Adele} that the truly ahhh-mazing and always ha-larious Lindsay Gee will be posting photos from our stylized camping shoot later today...

go check it out... I'll meet you over there... eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Sending you big squeezes and cool breezes!
* mwah *

I don't blame you at all for the blog break as I am doing the same! At least you have made an effort to get a few posts in this summer - kudos to you!

When I was younger I went on a Disney cruise and absolutely loved it! Plenty of things for the adults to do on it too! Saige and Gabe would LOVE it (;

Last but not least i am beyond excited to see your " camping " Photoshoot!! I know I will be super jealous when I see it because I was thinking of doing something similar with Kevin!

Have fun on all your summer adventures! Xoxo!!!

Totally taking a break from my blog too, sort of....I just am not feeling it as much these days! There's just TOO much to do! Ugh. I fail as a supermom :(

Your camping pics are insanely perfect. Hello Ralph Lauren family.

So jealous of your home must be so happy!!!!!
