When I got home from exercising last night, I was met at the door by Mary :
Mary : Do you go to the Arena Club to lose weight?
Me (weighing my words carefully, wanting so much to protect them as long as I can from every body conscious thought ) : Well….I go there to exercise.
Mary : Oh. Because boy! Do you ever look skinnier!
And that, my friends, is why I have children.
Did I ever tell you that Mary is my favorite child?
(Emma, if you're reading this, I'm JUST KIDDING.)
In light of THAT good news, here's some other goodness from around the web…
✽ Scratch Baking Co.'s Baker's Notes Issue No. 1 : bagels!! my weakness.
✽ Miss Moss : Farm Fashion ( via amanda ) : I want to look this good chopping wood. (cue my husband's laughter)
✽ Soulful Mothering with Tara Thayer : I'd like to carry these words around in my pocket
✽ Dandelion gone to seed : the anticipation makes you hold your breath
✽ morning light : I favorite all her kitchen pictures
✽ These shoes, in green.
✽ Grapegruit Sangria (do you have a good recipe for red or white? Share?!)
The weather is sticky here again. The three H's of summer : hazy, hot and humid. Once the baby wakes up, we're headed to the pool! Happy Wednesday, friends!
