I made jam-filled cookies today- the shapes I used to cut these out were the square and the triangle from Sunny's shape-sorter toy (the circle was the rim of a glass, do I need cookie cutters?....) I thought it was pretty ingenious... And Sunny enjoyed eating them as much as I did.
Last weekend was my moms birthday. We went to Lake Placid and celebrated with our friends, who also has the same birthday. We've done this 2 years in a row now and I cant help but hope its a looooong tradition. It was hot and I got a nice tan. Sunny got slip/slap/slopped with suntan lotion 3x and doesnt have a bit of brown skin to show off. Perfectly white.

We might've gone out after this photo was shot:

We are going out to dinner tonight and I am psyched; its been months since we've had a date (if you consider dates to include your toddler, which we do). Sure I've eaten food outside of the house recently, but never on a weekday, when we're home, when there's a perfectly functional stove and thawed out piece of meat in the fridge. I wish we could eat at home- that would mean that I'm not sick. So... I'm sick. And I feel like crap and so does Sunny. Since she gave it to me, or we both caught 'this' at the same time, I imagine she hurts like me and I feel sorry for her. I am in no mood to cook and slave in the kitchen, so I'm twisting Jason's arm to take us to this yummy mexican place in town. We shouldnt go out, since I wont be able to enjoy all the spiceyness and Coronas that I deserve (I should be drinking broth for dinner instead), but I'm hoping, here. Currently my loves' are sleeping. Its almost 5p and I'm ready for chips and salsa! Wake up Gligs!

Happy Fourth of July!

We celebrated this year by running a 5k race here in Sebastian. My dad was in town and ran it with us in 30:30- Jason beat a girl (me) and ran it in 32:00 and I was somewhere near the 37min mark. But, we never stopped running. Thats what counts. That and finishing. I was glad Jason beat me. I gave him my iPod, afterall, and ran in silence. If any of you are music-runners, then you know what a sacrifice this was for me. I got to listen to the shuffle of his feet for miles and was glad when he pulled ahead (Lady Gaga must've came on).

Running down Indian River Drive was brilliant- and it was the exact route the parade was taking afterwards. So it was like we were the parade, because people were all lined up waiting for it while we ran. Our Sebastian friends had a whole set up and we joined them following the race.

Meme and Papa- Sunny didnt move an inch from her position here. Watched the parade for over and hour, stuffing her face with Cheerios and fruit.
She waved and pointed, absolutely loved it. The parade was all there for her and she knew it.

Home 'Renos

My parents came over for the night and helped us with home improvements that I am unable to do (and its a given Jason's also unable to do it). I put them to work hanging shelves and painting walls. The week has been productive for the house: My office library: lots of time spent thinking about how I wanted this room, my room (the shelves are all quite even, my editing of the photos will not show this, since I am SICK of editing photos on Time is money, people) The dining room wall, one wall, is "tangerine". Mom insisted this color was 'in'. Watch HGTV, let me know if this is true. It looks good though.
Birds on a Wire, in the kitchen.
Thanks for coming to hang out, mom and dad. Sunny is devo'd without ya....

Dig. Dig. Dig. I needed a new project earlier in the week (and an excuse not to run that day) so digging was free and I had a shovel available, so we dug out this flower bed. Now landscaping costs money and we're stuck with a dirt-bed. Its a nice shape, right?

I've been growing these flowers for 2-3 months now and I thought I'd take a photo before I killed them.
All you mothers out there: bottle weaning. I only have ONE WEEK worth of formula left for Sunnylee. She already drinks cows milk for months now, in a straw-cup and mixed in her bottle. She likes her bottle before falling asleep, which will be a problem. Any suggestions to wean? This week we ordered these headbands from a chick on ETSY: Most every gift, accessory, or decoration I buy comes from this website. Our friend Beau wears these headbands all the time in NYC, so we thought we'd rock it in Sebastian. I'd post a photo of Sunny wearing one but she yanks them off instantly.
