Under the sea.

Eloise's first costume...a little mermaid.  I know I'm biased, but she looked so cute.  We took her to our church party last night, where she had fun playing in the little ball pit with the other kids.  Babies in costumes = hilariously adorable.

Mermaid outfit knitted/sewn by Cookie.  Inspiration via Pinterest.


Mom and Dad also picked up this awesome little toy while in San Francisco.  Its name is Sparky the rabbit (by Rich Frog).  It's a natural, chewable toy for babies.  And it's adorable.  Eloise loves it.  It's kind of like another version of Sophie (By the way, you can't go wrong with Sophie.  I've yet to see a baby, or any child, who doesn't like her.)

Owl Hat - Part II.

The owl hat on Eloise, thanks to Cookie and Da!  We love it and Cookie says she's pretty sure they're handmade to order.


Summing up some of the fun things we did over break, now that it is over (sad).  This week has not been too bad.  I am actually going to use this week to get ahead with school.  I have finished my work for the most part.  I am reviewing material now, planning to do another assignment tomorrow.  My binder is already organized. I am doing this - blogging. It feels odd.  I feel a little suspicious.  Anyways...
We went to the pumpkin patch with Leah and Elias (and moms, of course :)...

...obviously, they were enthralled with the pumpkin selection... mulch everywhere, including mouths...

...we took a walk to the grocery store on a pretty car had problems last week...the perfect time for that to happen and a perfect excuse to get some rest at home...

...we attended E's first birthday party, which was stinking adorable and a lot of fun.  I believe Eloise is pulling on Ev's dress while chewing on her teether...

...Perfect timing of break and girlie visits = Saturday night fun with …

Side tables.

I'm in love with these Martini side tables from West Elm right now.  Aren't they awesome??  The white one could be clean and cute, the yellow, super funky.  Love the idea of two for a coffee table.

How sweet.

How sweet are these letterpress announcements (via Oh So Beautiful Paper)?  I love them and the colors (and the fact that a little baby is named Ralph :).  

To. Die. For.

Oh, Jackie-O-ness.

And to follow my last's a post I wrote over five years ago (on FB) while we were still in Morocco.  It's from September 22, 2006.  It's just craziness how time flies.  p.s.  I miss those taxi drivers and those 30 cent croissants.  I also miss my team.  So, read below:

I'm listening to James Taylor and Joni Mitchell and Coldplay and that always makes me nostalgic and dreamy. And then I feel like writing. So, here goes... I've been here for almost a month. Crazy. That means I live here for ten more months. Even crazier. And I'm enjoying it mucho. It's so different from being here a few weeks. Soooo different. And it's a learning experience for sure. I've been reading John 15:5 a lot recently, where Jesus says, "...apart from me you can do nothing." Nothing! And I think, "You've gotta be kidding me Lord. Obviously I've done a lot myself...aren't you proud of me?" But as I look back on all that's happened, …


{Typographic Verses via Pinterest}
I'm not always a huge fan of bible verse prints.  The actual prints.  I'm a fan of the verses. :)  This one, though, is awesome.  I love the fonts.  I want it on our wall.  And I think it's a good verse to be reminded of right now.
I am on a break from school, so here I write.  {I started writing this post last Wednsday.  Now it is Monday.  eeks. }  I really have been taking the past four months one. day. at a time.  Learning that tomorrow really will "care for itself."  God is teaching me that.  When I fail to take on that perspective, I end up looking ahead at all the things to be done, ending up overwhelmed and discouraged.  Then it just goes downhill.  I wish I could say life with school has become oh, so easy.  It hasn't.  It has gotten increasingly easier, though.  Most definitely.  And I'm okay with that.  It simply is the way it is.  PA school is hard and time-consuming.  I've never heard anything different fr…
