2. Our week has been such that we all collapsed last night. Mellow first, in a haze of allergy medicine, snuggles up on the sofa to watch Cars. Husband followed him, and I joined the festival. In 10 seconds, we were all asleep in a big pile like cats in the cold. I don't know if it was the rain, carb-laden dinner, or sickness but we slept like that for two hours. I love couch cozies.
3. My sister had a baby this week. ANOTHER BABY FOR THE FAMILY, YAY. She had an intense pregnancy, spending the last five weeks in the hospital to incubate. Baby Trey is well and home and happy. I can't wait to lavish him with auntie love!
etsy.com, acting like choosing a return label stamps is a life or death situation. I've search, agonized, considered. I wanted something that could be permanant-ish and work for every situation - I didn't want no decorations and I didn't want too many decorations. I finally settled for something classy yet whimsical. This is from a shop called ForYoo. I knew this was the right shop (with 100% positive feedback!) when I fell in love with every single design. Once I had it narrowed down I ordered, received a proof, and *poof* it was here. I chose a self-inking stamp because I ordered a cute "hand-stamp" last year and it always came out smudges - I don't know if it was the stamp, the pad, or my four year old bumping my elbow every five minutes. This one, though, this one is love.

5. I saw Marcia's post earlier this week about doing a photo challenge. I've been incredibly slack on pictures the last two months - even over Christmas. I was tired of always being behind the camera instead of watching, sometimes I get self-conscious about things like that. Anyway, Marcia suggested "self-photos" this week - and I have been thinking about it. To document our self-photo week, Mellow and I took a selfie of our new haircuts, my new shoes - two accomplishments for the week - working hands, and something I love.
