Take 110

7 Quick Takes Friday

Amazon Prime.
This is how we watch our internet-tv in our house...
Have you ever noticed in the dead of the night after you've gone to bed,
that the page has refreshed on your browser downstairs?
And now that show is replaying...

I have. And when I'm home alone, it creeps me out!

We have a bird feeder!
Thanks to my Mom's mother's day gift to me,

We had a lovely dinner with friends this week.
Pete & Sheila gave me two wonderful things to walk away with:
  1. Isn't the ice cream music truck wonderful to drive around and play us nice music?
  2. Old Chub Scottish Style Ale.
Thank you. You two are so fun!

How do you collect information that you want to remember?

"Can't win for losing."

This week was the 2014 lifetime bathing suit miracle.
I went to a store.
I tried on 7 bathing suits.
I paid for two.
Picked one.
And that's it.

And I'm postpartum and nursing.

Thanks to my husband's research, I've bought myself prescription sunglasses 
on the cheap from
Did you know that one "major" change since becoming a mother is that, as much as I love contacts, I really like to be able to more easily lay down for a nap?
I've worn glasses for about 80% of the time since George was born... 
before which I wore contacts about 90% of the time. Shocking.

Thanks, Jen!
