About to settle down with some Frozen Planet and a beer. I am loving the Frozen Planet series on the Discovery channel. I never really watched the Planet Earth series, but now I kind of want to check it out. Why are the Blu-Ray sets so ding dang expensive?!
Today I set up a small kiddie pool in the back yard, I filled the water table up and I took the lid off of the sand box. We let the girls free and they had a blast! It was sooo hot sitting out in the sun and even with a lot of sunblock, Gene had to take K inside after an hour and a half or so. Her shoulders were looking pink and I didn’t want my baby to get sunburned or dehydrated. Is it SERIOUSLY March?! I don’t understand how it CAN be. This weather is insanity.
I have yet to turn the A/C on this year though.. and I am holding out strong. I just feel like turning the air on before April is, just, well.. wrong. On so many levels. Mother Nature is clearly pissed off about all of the energy we waste and pollution and over-full landfills and, well, we need to do something to make her happy because I don’t really like it when she’s on the rag. So, everyone go recycle your aluminum cans and try to make the woman CALM THE EF DOWN, ALREADY.
I didn’t really take any good pictures this weekend. Tried to live in the moment and not worry so much about getting the perfect shots. It was nice. Saturday morning I went to check out the new Dunkin Donuts with my BFF and then we went and did some thrifting. My big find was a $0.54 pillow form, still in the plastic packaging! Woot woot. I plan to crochet a slipcover for it. In lots of pretty colors. Totally excited about that. Saturday night my mama watched the girls while Gene and I went to see a movie (Jeff, who lives at home) and then to Outback Steakhouse for dinner. What a fantastic date night! We haven’t been able to do that in so long.
The girls are doing great. Zoey is turning 3 next month, which just blows my mind. She’s talking left and right and using sentences. Making it a LOT easier to communicate with her. Kiera is finally walking and saying a few things here and there. Both love to play with each other and haven’t had any fighting (…YET). They are both so cute and so amazing and just getting more and more fun to be with. I can’t even believe I am a mama, let alone a mama to two beautiful little girls. What a lucky lady I am, for sure!
I’ll update more about the girls with some pictures next time. Right now I am going to go crack open a beer and sit down with a little Frozen Planet. Bring on the Frozen Tundra! Because OMG it is like, 100 million degrees in this house.
