Day 29 – Something you could never get tired of doing.

I tried to post this yesterday but for some reason blogger was down...

Something I never get tired of doing is playing with my kids. I love tea parties, imaginary rescue missions, reading books, watching Toy Story 100 times in a row, playing trains, hamper "basketball", playing in the dirt, going for walks (wagon rides), pretending to be a monster and chasing the kids up and down the hallway...the list could go on and on.

Day 27 – A picture of you last year and now and how have you changed since then?

This time last year I was very, very pregnant with Harper. A lot has changed since then. Harper was born, we moved into a new home and David got a new job.

Day 26 – A photo of somewhere you’ve been to.

Scranton, PA

I actually lived there for like a month in 2006 with an ex-boyfriend. But the only exciting part about there is the fact that The Office is set there. Scranton, WHAT?! The electric city!

Sittin’ in my office with a plate of grilled bacon,
Call my man Dwight just to see what was shakin’

Yo Mike, our town is dope and pretty
So check out how we live in the Electric City!

They call it Scranton
The Electric City
The Electric City

Lazy Scranton the Electric City
They call it that ’cause of the electricity

The city’s laid out from east to west
And our public parks and libraries are truly the best

Call poison control if you’re bit by a spider
But check that it’s covered by your health care provider!

Are you hungry? Well quit your whining
The new downtown has five-star dining

You lack coal mines and you wanna see ‘em,
Well, check it out, yo, the Anthracite Museum!

The dope thing to do, that’s several and counting
The illest place to go is Montage Mountain

Plenty of space in the parking lot,
But the little cars go in the compact spot
Spot, spot, spot, spot …

Snack attack time, don’t lose your head
We like Cugino’s for the tasty bread

They call it Scranton
The Electric City
The Electric City
The Electric City
The Electric City

Day 25 – What’s in your purse?

I never really carry a purse, I just have a "clutch" with my driver's license, insurance cards, cash and debit in it that I throw into the diaper bag. But here are the current contents of the diaper bag...

A change of clothes for both kids
A floppy hat for Harper
Diapers (normally there are wipes in there too but I guess I accidentally left them at my grandparents house earlier)
Trains and crayons (distractions for kiddos!!!)
Harper's sippy cup
Harper's binkies
A microwave lunch for Harper
Gummy snacks
A sandwich box (which currently has some gluten free graham crackers in it)

Day 24 – A photo of something that means a lot to you.

At first I was going to put a picture of my family because they mean so much to me, but then I decided to actually talk about a THING that means a lot to me.

This bowl was my grandma's when she was a child. You can't really tell by the picture but it is very warped. My grandma told me that when she was little, my Great Grandpa took her to the general store to buy groceries (they lived out in the boonies and did not own a car.) She said there were stacks of bowls there and the clerk could not get this bowl to stack because it was crooked and he ended up just giving it to her. So now I own the bowl, it's at least 70 years old and is still in amazing condition. There are no markings on the bottom so I have no idea where it was made or anything but it still means a lot to me. I love my little lopsided bowl. :)
