oh, hello there!

The kids cried for a tree house recently, so we improvised (having no trees in our yard). This picture will sort of tie in later. Oh and Benson is dancing and that face is a happy one, believe it or not.

I'm pretty sure I completely forgot I have a blog this week. So sorry, little blog. You have been so neglected.

Remember how I'm going to have a baby? He's supposed to make his appearance in 3 weeks. And because those three weeks are just sooooooooo not tiring, I think I'm going to move before then. Yes! That's a great idea! Let's pack up my house and move it in 2 weeks, just for fun!

Really hoping some extreme nesting kicks in pretty soon and I can get going on that whole putting the entire house in boxes thing.

But all complaining aside, we are really excited. Benson wished for a tree for his birthday and he's going to get it. There's even a lilac bush for me. Ben will bike to medical school, and I will only be 9 minutes from the fabric store, instead of 26. We will be a bit cozier than we are now, but I'm hoping the whole zen, uncluttered, essentials-only picture is really as lovely as it sounds.

So, big changes ahead for us, blog! Which probably means that you will continue to feel the sting of neglect for a bit, but I'll try to pop in more often.

xox, Cat

Ahhhhhhh! Carrie! I can't believe how busy you are going to be. I so wish I could help you. I hope your baby cooperates and stays in there! I'm glad you get a tree and a pretty bush!

Good luck! Hope all goes well!

How exciting!!!! And how overwhelming for a wonderful woman who is about to have a baby in just three short weeks. Hopefully, it will be easy-peasy and afterward you will just keep saying "oh thank you, oh thank you" and really mean it because it will all be simply fabulous! Wish I were there to help.
