It's jellybean season!

Ugh. You guys. I don't know what the hell is wrong with me that I can only blog like once a week. I'm working on it, I swear.

Today is Ben's birthday eve. I love Ben's birthday because it means we are the same age for the next 2 months (2 months exactly), and I don't feel so damn old.

Speaking of jellybeans, my Potbelly pregnancy craving has kicked in. Despite the healthy lunch in my office fridge on Thursday, I walked there after my office hours on autopilot and ordered a skinny mushroom melt with extra hot peppers and a chocolate malt. Also barbecue chips. Then I took the boys there again on Friday while we were evicted for a house showing (the people liked it; liked the price, hated that they had to walk up a flight of stairs from the garage to the main floor, so boo.) But don't worry. I still love hot dogs.

Pregnancy is weird. My jeans all fit just fine for the most part, but I need to wear maternity shirts at 15 weeks. Luckily Motherhood has a bunch of extra-smalls which they never did when I was pregnant with the boys, so I picked up a few things, many of them unfortunately horizontally striped. With the other kids, my jeans stopped fitting long before I had a belly. Weird.

Jack fell asleep after running errands, before taking off his coat, and while picking his nose.


  1. Haha, great picture! People have the weirdest house comments, don't they?

  2. This cracked me up! I love the picture of Jack. Syd found her nostril today, so I'm imaging lots of similar pictures.

    I miss Potbelly SO MUCH. Delicious!

    Jack looks HUGE! Is he growing a lot?

  4. I love that your kids can crash mid-nose-pick, on the floor, in a winter coat. My kid needs optimal dark, white noise, three stories and his lovey before he'll consider shutting his eyes longer than it takes him to blink.

    I miss Potbelly. Not a one out here, and it really detracts from the overall quality of life, for real.
