It's Friday and I like linking up so here are five things worthy of favorite status.
This just cracks me up every time I look at it. Bauer laid on his back for a full five minutes before I grabbed the sunglasses, the camera, and a little help from Andrew. Clearly he was comfortable.
I was gchatting with my friend (and former blogger) Sara and somehow my desire for a mini-vacation came up. I asked what they were doing July 4th weekend, she said nothing, and by the end of the day, we booked two rooms for two nights in Austin for us and our husbands to hang out and eat. I know I've been to Austin a million times but it never gets old and there are so many things there that would be fun with a few friends. I'm excited!
Favorite Thing I Learned
Thanks to a tweet from Kelli, I learned you can now use your own fonts on picmonkey! This is awesome for DIY blog designers like me with no graphics program knowledge - I was using pixlr.com and I had no idea what half of the buttons did simply because it was the only way I knew I could use my own fonts and things took forever. My life will now be easier and I can keep using the fonts I like.
Regarding my anniversary post on Wednesday, a few people commented that they liked that I portrayed my marriage as real. Thank you for saying that - it really does mean a lot! I really like to portray my life as it is while still respecting Andrew's feelings and keeping extremely personal matters off the internet - but in truth, we are pretty boring. There's nothing interesting that I don't blog about, promise.
Least Favorite Thing I Realized
Um, you guys, Father's Day is on Sunday. While I was super proactive and already mailed my father-in-law's card to Delaware (I bought it when I bought his birthday card in May, way to think ahead) I have purchased nothing for my dad or my step-dad, both of whom I will likely see this weekend. Real smart Lauren. Of course I have no grand ideas of what to get, so something simple will have to do!
We're going out for our anniversary dinner tomorrow night and we'll probably see my dad on Sunday. And my nieces will be at my mom's house for two weeks starting Sunday so I am super excited to see them and talk to the big one about high school and see how much the little one learned in Kindergarten. Can't wait to spend time with them!
