Reason #3,472


Reason #3,472 I love my mom's house: 

She has fun things in jars on shelves like Smarties {they make you smart} and Veuve champagne cork tops. Kind of like a witch, but a good witch.

Since moving and accepting a position taking care of infant triplets, my life has fallen into a somewhat strict routine. 

I thrive following a strict routine. It has been so nice and simplifying. 

One of my favorite parts of this routine is eating breakfast. I have never been a breakfast eater, but I am really liking it now. Every morning I have fruit and oatmeal. 

What do you eat for breakfast? Do you like routine or do you prefer to have a less structured day? 

This is how the cool kids eat a mango.

random memories


When I was a little girl I was VERY particular about my candy. Now I am particular about everything, but that's another blog post. 

I didn't like many types of candy and what I did like, I only liked certain flavors. For example, I only ate pink and orange starburst. The other ones went to my brother or in the trash.

I also only liked orange jelly beans. Every year, my grandma would pick all of the orange jelly beans out of the bag so that I could have exclusively orange jelly beans in the plastic eggs in my easter basket. 

That is true love.

Do you ever do dumb things that make you really mad at yourself? 

For example, spending $100 on super cute Happy New Year cards for your doula clients and colleagues and then NEVER sending them out even though you addressed them all?!?! 

I am so lame. Now I don't know what to do with these things. It's too late to send them out, right? I don't want to throw them away because they are really cute! Maybe I'll just change the 1 in 2011 to a 2 to make it 2012. Anyone have a Sharpie? JK.

Before accepting my new job in California, I sat in my house with my favorite mug and thought about what I would be losing and what I would be gaining by leaving Arizona. I focused on the Emerson quote in my mug while sipping my tea. I know what I want from life and staying in Arizona is not a part of that plan. I knew I would really miss my friends (I have NO friends in my current city) and my house. I really miss having a space of my own. However, this job is providing me the opportunity to prepare for living the life I imagine. It feels wonderful to have my family an hour and a half away and I love seeing them every weekend. I feel peaceful and content with my decision to move and am looking forward to the near future when I can live the life I imagine. 



I would really like to start blogging more often, but I am taking care of babies for 12 hours a day 5 or 6 days a week. I feel like I don't have much to share. Not only am I not allowed to blog about the kiddos (understandable), but there are only so many 'I'm covered in spit up' posts you can write. I'll do my best to post more consistently. :) 

I'm also posting HERE every week! Are you reading about the cheesy goodness?
