I am supposed to be on a blogging break. Which, ironically, I am finding difficult despite the fact that I could barely find a minute to blog prior to declaring the need for time off. Apparently, the best cure for lack of blogging time or inspiration is to swear off blogging. I was immediately besieged with things I felt I must share with the Internets.
For example, I discovered, while back to school shopping with Allie on Friday, that my mall now has one of these stores. Honestly, I got so excited just walking by it, I almost couldn't contain myself. And I nearly came home and wrote an ode to my make-up fetish, and specifically my 5 year long obsession with all things Bare Escentuals. But I didn't.
At least not until now.
However, this week really will be terribly busy and I doubt I will get another post in until I return from my anniversary mini-vacation with The Man. (Although I can't swear another pressing topic like mineral make-up or work-out wardrobe malfunctions won't arise.)
I am proud to say, I am making great progress on the house cleaning front. My mother-in-law will actually be able to find my bed now without tripping on a single thing. Even in the dark! I am sure this news comes as a great relief to her.
So I leave you now with pictures of the Weekids and their cousins at the pool this week. It is a joy to know that while we have have accomplished nothing else this summer, we managed to get Ben happily off the steps and into the pool.
Praise God for water wings.
Next summer, we'll work on Clara.
