Musings of a bored girl...

I'm having a boring Monday, nothing much going on right now, so here I am blogging. Simon is sleeping (good boy) and I'm freezing, for some reason it's really cold in the apartment today...brr. I'm *really* looking forward to Spring...Summer actually. I can't wait to take little Simon baby out in the stroller, walking around the lake or through Como Zoo, that sounds amazing right now. I'm also looking forward to sitting out on our balcony while said baby naps and catching some sun rays...so therapeutic. It's been such a long, cold, white Winter. Thank goodness, it's almost April.

Peter and I got a Wii this past weekend. I love playing games with my honey. I really like playing sports and miss being able to do it in real life...second best I guess is playing it on the Wii. My favorite sport on the Wii is bowling, it's been over a year since we've gone bowling and I was really missing it. It's amazing how similar bowling on the Wii is to the real thing (I'm even sore in the same areas - lol). Now if only they had Wii Volleyball...sigh.


So I'm losing more weight then I thought possible postpartum. It's been 7 months now and I'm smaller then I've been in YEARS. The one and only downside to losing so much weight is that my jeans don't fit me like they used to. I feel like throwing out everything in my closet and getting all new stuff...stuff that actually fit. Haha, I wish. It's not that bad actually - I get like this every now and then, I just need to work on being content with what I have. Easier said then done...

Oooh, I got my cartridge re-pierced. I've wanted to get it done ever since it closed up right before babySimon was born. Apparently, getting a piercing while you're 6 months pregnant (my first mother's day gift...simon's birthstone...from Peter) isn't such a good idea because your body can't heal it as it should since it's focusing on the pregnancy. So yeah, I got it done again last week and it's far less painful then I remember the last one being - that's probably a good sign. I ♥ it :)

My favorite flower. The peony.

The peony is my favorite flower. They have always held a special place in my heart. For as long as I can remember, they've grown in my childhood backyard. My mom has a plant from the house I was born in, their current house - the house I grew up in - and a plant from my Great-Grandma. As kids, we would watch in awe as the ants crawled over the peony buds, almost willing them to open. It was a chore getting those little suckers off once the flowers were ready to be cut and brought into the house. But it was worth the effort.

My dad has always commented that the flowers smell like old lady perfume. Haha!  I still think of that when I bring the blooms up to my nose for a whiff of Spring. They're such a romantic flower. I wanted them for my bridal bouquet, but they had already stopped blooming by the time June 3rd rolled around. So sad.

Apartment living was dreary for me when it came to flowers. No lilacs, tulips or peonies. When we moved to our current house, I was …

We are His portion and He is our prize...

I've had this song in my head for a few days now. I love Kim Walkers voice and the passion that she portrays in this song. McMillan did a wonderful job in writing this song, the lyrics are so profound and encouraging and...different (the "sloppy wet kiss" part makes me smile). I especially love the first part of this song...

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves …

Be Still, My Soul. Remembering...

My first post of 2014.

Looking back on my last post, I'm overwhelmed with many emotions. It was the last post before our world was turned upside down, before the cold weather hit hard, before doctor visits became our norm. Before Halloween, Thanksgiving, my 30th birthday, Christmas and New Years. Looking back at the title of that post, I'm struck with how appropriate it was for the rest of the year. I tried to blog a few times since October 13th. But I never got to the point where I felt like I could publish. I had a million and one thoughts constantly tumbling around in my tiny mind. Writing helped to unload it, but just like it is with my trusty old dishwasher, there's always dirty dishes to take the place of the clean ones and I found myself overwhelmed and overcome with both good and bad...clean and dirty. My brain has felt like mush since October. Add holidays, getting sick, taking care of sickies, being the strong one, being the brave one, being the hea…
