Mom in the shot Jun 24th {and a pink lemonade cake.}


Ok so here is the deal, its been a ROUGH couple of days. Hubby has been out of town {ALL the praise in the world to single parents out there, *PHEW*}. And my little Bean has been teething. So this picture deserves a little narrative today, to make it easy I numbered it.

1. The sling. My little boy is ALL boy and I guess that means his threshold for pain is low. Because WOW Buggie was never this bad. So my days have been spent with him nuzzled up against me in some form. Wether it be nursing, snuggling, or just on the hip he has been in close contact.
2. The HUGE GINORMO cart. As you can see by number 1, he was not having it in the cart. So of course I was stuck pushing that beast around Target, because "Mommy, we HAVE to have that cart!"
3. Yes I totally asked a random stranger in the soap isle to take our picture. She was super sweet and giggled a little then indulged me. Thank you random lady in the soap isle, I *heart* you!
4. What's in the cart? The ingredients for this cake. I think a pink, fluffy, baked goodie will make make me smile. Plus Hubby comes tonight, something to celebrate.
5. Ok this makes me giggle out loud. Running shorts, come on people really? The only running these see are up my stairs to sneak a binkie back into Bean's mouth before he completely wakes up! I mean I did not even have sneaks on to pretend, flip flops.
6. Lastly no face shot today, it was bad enough I exposed all of Target to my mug today. Enough said.

Peace out peeps, off to go make my cake! Oh and if you are cool you will participate in Emily's weekly challenge.

OH OH OH, I got my phone fixed. I tell you people may not want to switch an iphone but it is SO worth it when you need something fixed. I just made an appointment at the "genius bar" and they ran a test and fixed it in 10 mins, for FREE!

I adore this post. I feel like you wrote a guest post (as me) on my blog. My sister and I call our running shorts "fake out clothes" instead of work out clothes... because, lets face it, they aren't getting much of a work out.

Love that recipe-- gonna have to add it to my list of things to bake! Whenever I find the time...

And, I can't stop coveting your bright happy blog makeover. Once I get our family photos back from yesterday's session, I am thinking it's time for Marina to revamp our blog!

Happy Thursday.

i'm totally with you. i wear my running shorts and i'm about as far from a runner as you can get. they kind of make me feel athletic though.

ok this is hilarious. especially because my son HAD to have that cart the last time we went to target and I pushed it for all of 10 feet before I convinced him it was 'dangerous' for his little brother. a little white lie but TOTALLY worth it. bless you girl!

oh wow... you had a day like I had a week here! I have had a week with a boy attached to me... oh yes, there pain threshold is not as good as the girls. Not teeth, well don't think teeth, but his ears still. Oh no please don't let there be more teeth too; I am not game to look. I think the shorts look great, and I do believe the cake and seeing the hubby would have made your day so much better...

ps... oh my that trolley is HUGE!
