I was going to give you a fun V-day recap and maybe even a smushy shout out to the Husby, but then Lulu took longer than 45 minutes to fall asleep, and my nice-ness kind of evaporated.  

I only know how long because her new Twilight Turtle turns off at 45 minutes.  It is very off and she is still very awake.  Yawning and poking her fingers at me and in the air, but awake.  


But anyway, Happy 29 B!  Hope your cake jars were still super-delicious two weeks later and that all of your stinky friends were quiet enough for you to get a teeny bit of sleep in your dusty tent!  And hey, you won't be in Afghanistan next year, so that's pretty awesome!  For reals though, Happy Birthday to my awesome husband who is way more of a fox at 29 than he was at 28, for sure!

Just looks stinky, right?
R&R !

Lulu and I had a pretty awesome day too!  Lots of treats, a little party with cousins, a chilly wagon ride, and enough sugar to keep a one year old awake way past her bedtime!  Yay!
Noisy animals and serious bedhead


Festive ladies!

Scarlett love!

Auntie Meg and Cousin Alyssa!

Little Red's maiden voyage

I love Lulu's face in this one!
Ladylove is finally asleep and I'm having some ice cream!  Yay!  Hope you've all had an awesome Valentine's Day!

Mom fail.

You know those tubs of plastic foods and utensils that all little girls must have for their kitchens?  They have itty bitty plastic knives with fancy pink handles and sweet baby Louisa fell in love.  I showed her how to 'slice' her fancy felt veggies and she loved those little velcro things coming apart...

So she took her cutting talents to her favorite people!  

And I am a horrible mother because I encourage and laugh instead of telling her that stabbing is bad. 

(Also starring Scarlett!)

We keep a close eye on all the real knives in this house.

Also, that video was a bit of a fail.  If you can't see it click here!

Whats your song? Link up!

I've been in a bit of an old music kick lately, especially songs that remind me of B.

Brian and I are not super smushy, or exceptionally traditional so I'm not even really sure how this came to be.  Our song is the Beyonce and Jay-Z duet, '03 Bonnie and Clyde.  

I'm pretty sure the Sex and the City reference factors into it suiting us, that and that Brian thinks he's a gangster?  SO romantic!  Ha!  Either way though, I love this song!

Link up with Goodnight Moon!

Wordless Wednesday

Post-nap, one sock.  Typical Lu.

Three Quarters there!

Three(ish) months until deployment three is done!

Miss Louisa is a rambunctious toddler now.

The weather here has peaked 40 degrees; and I think we're about done hibernating!


Do you pin?  I'm obsessed.
