We took Franklin on quite a lovely hike through the woods two weekends ago. The weather this spring has been touch-and-go, but we found a lovely day, just windy enough, to go hiking in the wilderness of Bloomington! It was an hour and a half of heavenly, earthy bliss!! =)
Mitch & I had a spectacular date night last night! I wore my pretty floral dress with my big belt and purple tights. I felt like such a cutesie lady! We went to Domo [a hibachi grill] to get some steak/iron in me, anemia be damned! =) We were the only people at our table, which made it extra fun. We made friends with the cook & had a really great time. The date ended with reading some Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire while cuddled up in our pajamas! Perfect date night.
Happy Birthday to my Mitchel! He turns 29 years old today… so close to the big 3-0!!!! =) I am so blessed to have him in my life. He is an incredibly intelligent, incredibly driven man and he makes everything in my life better. Couldn’t do it without you, love. Here’s to another year older and hopefully another year wiser.
-How long it’s been since we’ve washed our bedsheets! Icky! We’ve gotta make a big run to the laundromat this week!
-Franklin being exceptionally smelly the other day! Boston terrier farts are the worst.
-Sleeping owls. Aren’t they adorbs?!
-Watching The Walking Dead season 2 on Netflix! It’s sickeningly well-written and acted!
-Crocheting! My bobble blanket is coming along soooo nicely. I’m actually quite proud of it!
-Finishing ‘Life of Pi’ the novel with Mitchel! We read aloud to each other every night… it’s super romantic! And now we start on the Harry Potter series, since he’s never read it before!!
We took Franklin on a really wonderful and relaxing walk last Saturday! He really needed a nice, loooooooong walk… and Mitch, Mary, and I took the opportunity to be out in this lovely fall weather!
Franklin was loving the water [a first]!
It was great to be out in nature instead of stuck inside the apartment reading [although, Lord knows, I love that, too]! I love when we get in some “family time” with our baby boy Franklin!
This week is “National Boyfriend Week”. When Mitchel informed me of this momentous occassion, my natural response was to scrunch up my face and say “Every week is boyfriend week.” hahaha. BUT, I’ve had a change of heart… and I’d like to NOMINATE MITCHEL.
He is kind and loving.
He is attentive and yet respectful of my me-time.
He understands me and loves me in spite of [or maybe because of] all of my flaws.
He is a super dapper gent and lets me ooh and aah over Christopher Eccleston [Doctor Nine] without ever getting piffed!
He adores our fur-babies… all 3 cats & the Frankmeister!!!
Even though he can drive me crazy, I’d still rather fight with his silly face than anyone else’s.
Also, he is very nice to look at, and that doesn’t hurt one bit!
And he wrote me a lovely poem. It’s my favorite piece of poetry I’ve ever read. =) (and not just because it’s about our love and mushy gushy!)
Mitchel, you are all the stars in the sky and every sunrise and sunset. You are my bestest best friend [right up there with mom, you cool cat] and I lurve you and all that junk! Happy national kiss your boyfriend’s bum week.
When is National Girlfriend’s week again? Next week, you say?
I saw this on Pinterest and thought it was super sweet! It’s to commemorate the first apartment Mitchel and I shared together! =)
-Key from Previous Apt
-Book Page [I chose Hunger Games because Mitch & I read it together in that apartment. I'm a super sap!]
The first step is to paint the key! Make sure to let it dry before the next step!
Then I took the Tacky Glue and my cut out page from The Hunger Games and glued the key to the center of the page!
Once dry, I put it in the frame from IKEA and hung it on my wall!! Super simple, but really sweet touch to the new abode!
The above photo is baby Aaliyah’s big sister Naomi!!!
