...and then I found $5.

When this is the situation, and I have to use the restroom… what’s a gal to do?

Macho is very much affected by his bee sting from earlier today. 🐝🐶

Poor Macho! He got stung by a bee today. Hopefully this heart-shaped cookie will make him feel better.

Ain’t nobody fresher than my motherfucking clique, clique, clique, clique, clique.

Well OK then.

I love snuggling with my coworker.

Found dairy free chocolate so all is good here.

Contrary to what I make it look like on social media, Ellie doesn’t always smile… but even when she frowns it’s cute as can be.

Isn’t her bow totes adorbs?!

I don’t know why, but these stainless steel straws are 100% off today on GroopDealz… meaning they are free. Just pay shipping. Snag them while you can!

Their method of constantly spitting out a “Not enough storage on this iPhone” pop up message made me upgrade to the $20/yr option. Anything to not have to see that no ‘mo.

I suggest to never ever take this suggestion. This is worse than that tacky heart jewelry.

This too shall pass. This too shall pass. This too shall pass. This too shall pass. This too shall pass. This too shall pass. This too shall pass. This too shall pass.

Our sweet little girl is 3 months old today! It seems like just yesterday we brought her home.

At 3 months she:

-Smiles all the time! I’m starting to hear the beginning of a laugh.
-Lifts her head during tummy time and when she’s being held upright.
-Looks at her toys.
-Smiles at herself in the mirror. This is one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen.
-Pulls my hair!
-Coos and oohs and ahhs, and shrieks with delight!
-Had a stretch of good sleeping nights, but that has since stopped.
-Has been to NJ, PA, NC, SC, MD, and the airport—though only to drop off and pickup.
-Spent her first whole day away from her mommy and daddy.
-Reached double digits in the weight department!

Sad morning! My cousin MJ is headed back home after helping me with Ellie for the past week! It was so nice to have an extra set of hands, especially since Eric was traveling for business! Plus, she’s funny to boot.

For her services I got her a pair of braided Rainbows (I have them too!) and a pretty necklace from Francesca’s.

Thanks, MJ! We loved having you!

My smiley girl. 😍
