1. It was a gorgeous day in STL today. It was in the 60s, and so the bf and I decided to meet up to take the kids to the park. We all needed an excuse to get out of the house.  Afterward, we all came back to my place where we ordered food and hung out. Tomorrow the four of us are going to Dave & Busters, which is always a good time. 
  2. I have the windows open and it’s lovely. I hope this weather lasts.  The forecast for the next week looks promising. 
  3. Spring forward tonight. Ugh. Though the extra daylight will be nice. 
  4. I’ve made it to Season 2, Episode 3 of Scandal. I’m planning to do some more binge watching after the kiddo goes to bed tonight. 
  5. I signed up for Le Tote yesterday, and I received notification today that my first tote is on its way. I’m so excited. I’m going to dedicate an entire post to it once it arrives.
  6. I have a photo project I need to get to work on. I’m making a collage to hang up in my living room, and I need to select and print all the pics. I also have a really cute picture of Jackson, Dave, Freya, and me that we took a few months ago at the zoo. I want to have that one printed and framed. Maybe I’ll post it here too. 

everything is awesome

  1. My stomach situation has become a real problem. I have a plan to fix it. I hope it works. Last night I discovered that drinking wine now makes me sick, and that is simply unacceptable. 
  2. Jackson comes home tonight! I can’t wait. Five hours. 
  3. I watched the last half of The Lego Movie with the bf’s daughter this morning (inspired the title of this post). It never gets old. Best kid’s movie ever. I wonder if Jackson will be into watching it tonight. Hmm…
  4. Oscars tonight. Meh. New episode of The Walking Dead tonight. Fuck yes. I’m finally all caught up. 
  5. I’m also all caught up on Better Call Saul, which is brilliant. Lawyering is so much more Better Call Saul than it is Law & Order. Seriously. At least my kind of lawyering. Consumer law & criminal defense ftw!!
  6. Driving home this afternoon, I realized (again) just how fucking awesome my neighborhood is. I can see the city skyline from my kitchen window. I live across the street from a park and a small old church. I see the people going to church every Sunday and it makes me happy for some reason, even though church is so not my thing.  I live next to the FPSE community garden. I’m only a few blocks from the Grove and all the awesomeness there (bars, shopping, restaurants). On the way, I pass a crazy looking abandoned gas station. I’m less than half a mile from Forest Park. I don’t know why I’m babbling on about this, except to say that it’s home.  It’s just so interesting and fun. I love it here. I want it to warm up so I can venture out and take some pics. My old place was just down the street, but it was a gated community, far off the street, and I wasn’t really exposed to the city in the same way I am now.
  7. Spring break trip with the bf and the kiddos to Wisconsin Dells has been booked. *squee* I’m so excited. We had so much fun last year, and I think this year will be even better since we are all super comfortable with each other now. ❤ ❤ ❤
