+ I just finished my first novel that I've read in a long time,When I'm Gone. I'm not exactly sure how I came across this one, but it was pretty good. I would say that it was a bit heavier (and hit a little too close to home) than I was really looking for since it was about a wife and mother who died of cancer, but I ultimately, I ended up liking it. It was a little slow to start, but then it kept me wanting more. I think I'm finally in a reading groove. I just started The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand. Who's read it? I also finally joined GoodReads and think I accidentally made two profiles. One through my email address and one through my Facebook account. So I need to fix that.
+ Ya'll Madelyn eats everything. You can't comprehend how wonderful this is until you've had a ridiculously picky child. Brody was and still is such a picky eater. It kills me. I can put anything in front of Madelyn and she will go to town. She is loving eating finger foods and does not discriminate!
+ If you live in Pensacola or anywhere that has a Trampoline House, you should go. Our's is actually called Fly Zone. It was so much fun. Brody had a blast and next time I will be sure to take Madelyn. I think any kid that can walk, can have a great time there. They have a special Toddler Zone and was perfect for keeping the kids safe from the really big kids. Apparently they have adult exercise classes there at night too! How fun??
+ These two kids and I are packing up to head to the Mountains next week. I'm nervous as always to fly with young kiddos, but I couldn't be more excited to go. I'm hoping to start packing this weekend! Brody will be in his own seat on the flight this year and Madelyn will be in my lap. Should be interesting....
+ I'm really working on trying to get our playroom a bit more organized again. I've missed having my
office desk space in this room, so I'm trying to get it cleaned up enough for me to have it back! Our new rug arrived and I love it and we also got Madelyn's early 1st birthday present. She needed her own chair because she kept trying to steal Brody's and he was having none of it!!
+ We don't take the kids out to dinner often, but we decided to try a new restaurant with them this week. They looked super cute and seemed up for the challenge, but it was such a cluster. Trying to entertain these two for the entire dinner and then when our food arrives, they are so over it. Instead, I'm sitting outside in the heat while Madelyn runs around on the back deck outside. One day we will learn....
+ So I think we've survived all the little summer colds we've passed around these last few weeks. The bad news is that Brody is 3 years old now and still prone to ear infections. It's so sad, but basically any time he gets sick; I can expect that an ear infection will soon follow. It's so sad. We've scheduled tubes and the removal of his adenoids in September. Anyone who has been through this, I would love to hear from you and anything about your experience. I know it's a common procedure, but it's always scary to have to have your child go under anesthesia.
+ I have my eye on these two pair of sandals from the Tory Burch Private Anniversary Sale going on right now. I've been wanting a pair of red shoes in my closet lately (probably because of the Olympics going on right now) and white goes with everything!! I love a great wedge :)

++++ Girls, I'm sorry if you linked up earlier and it was not working. I had to make a new code which means I lost a few or your entries. I've been having trouble lately with the links. I'm so sorry.
