Happy Friday the 13th! Back in the day, I would have squealed with the excitement of renting scary movies and making the most of this infamous date, but now I can’t even watch the trailers for scary movies. I kid you not, I close my eyes and sing lalala to myself. Whyyyyy, whyyyy watch something so terrifying when there is already enough scary stuff out there in the world. You know, like the fact that high-waisted pants are making a comeback. (Shudders)
Ok, I digress, but happy Friday regardless!
Per usual, I’m jamming a bunch of unrelated topics into a post because it’s Friday and I’m feeling footloose and fancy free. Let’s start with good news.
We got Koda’s preliminary test results back yesterday and her lymphoma is B-cell instead of T-cell, which is the less aggressive form! We were thrilled to hear this and the vet seems really pleased with how everything is going. You know that dogs live in the moment, they don’t dwell on past or future the way we do, and I have no doubt that Koda is wondering what she did so right to suddenly be getting the extra peanut butter and permission to be on the bed. All I care about right now is that our sweet pup is feeling good and loving life. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
My mom came up for a couple days midweek, undoubtedly after hearing me fall apart last week, and it was wonderful to have her here. Hailey was spoiled rotten with attention after seeing Mema and Nana in the same week.
I just love having helping hands anytime I can get them. I’ve said it before, but those that live down the street from your family, I’m way jealous.
While we are talking about mom, I definitely inherited my eating preferences from her. We both love salty food (pickles please!)
and adore leftovers for lunches that are veggie-heavy.
We also both struggle with dressing ourselves. Evidently I inherited my missing fashion gene from her. And don’t worry, she’s not offended by that; though she always looks great, she is nodding along and smiling because we both hate clothes shopping.
With that, I’ve been getting Stitch Fix deliveries on the regular (affiliate link), but haven’t posted much about them because I’m trying to figure out my own personal style and trying lots of different items. I have the Cher Horowitz problem that things I think look really good on me in the mirror end up looking baggy and unflattering on me in pictures, so I’m working hard at getting comfortable wearing more figure flattering clothes and seeing how they look in selfies. I know a sense of style is incredibly personal, but I loved how this jacket fit me!
I think it will work really well for me for day to day… you know, if I ever decide to change out of yoga pants.
Hmm… what else?
Oh, more about my girls?
Sure, no problem! (Wait, why are you rolling your eyes…)
Kaitlyn is such a joy. She’s the happiest little busy body of an 8 month old and will keep me on my toes for years to come, no doubt, but my goodness she is such a sweet little thing.
However, we are totally at the age where going out to eat as a family is pointless. She can wiggle out of any highchair and prefers to try and crawl across the table. Between wrangling her and keep Hailey focused on her food and in a chair, going out to eat is nothing less than a five ring circus.
With that in mind, I’d like to offer my apologies to the new Famous Toastery (Ok, I’m just going to keep calling it Toast) for our stellar appearance yesterday morning.
I’m sure everyone exhaled heartily when we finally left.
However, locals, the Mooresville location is now open and the people are just as nice and the food is just as delicious, so go check them out!
Have I yammered on enough for one post? I think so.
Scary movies, love or hate?
Any Valentine’s Day plans?
Eaten anywhere fun and delicious lately?
