Our Life In An Outline Format

I'm going to be completely honest: I'm not excited about updating the ol' blog today. Usually I wait until I get the urge to post something but the urge is nowhere to be found. Quite a bit has happened in the past week and I'm afraid I'll forget if I wait much longer so I'm sucking it up, putting on my big girl pants, and writing this post. I know you usually come to this blog expecting to fall out of your chair laughing at my charm and wit but I'm just not up to it today. So... let's call it a case of the Mondays, shall we?

Bullets! Ah yes, the answer to everything!

• Thursday evening. Went to Utica Square to hear a rock n' roll band with Kait and Steve. Had a fab time. Discovered a new, delicious bottle of pinot noir. Discovered the bottom of the bottle at the end of the evening (oops).

• Friday. Had a glorious half-day (although it was a terrible day at work but I needn't go into details). Went to the salon to finally, FINALLY color my hair and now feel like my hair has surpassed blonde and reached the forbidden zone: platinum. Yes it's kind of fun. And yes, I will have roots by Wednesday.

• Saturday morning. Went to the members only viewing of the Object Project at the Philbrook. I know you are so impressed. We decided there are 2 types of Philbrook members: the hippy, artistic folk and the rich "I don't really know what this painting is supposed to represent but I'm rich so it doesn't matter" folk. Michael and I decided (somewhat proudly) that we did not fall into either category and then immediately felt awkward and out of place.

• Saturday evening. Celebrated Stephen Sutton's belated birthday (he had strep the first time so party was postponed). Ate at a relatively new restaurant on Brookside called Keo. Ordered one of the most expensive things on the menu because it sounded so delicious. Anyone seen that Capital One commercial where they bring the food out and it's tiny? Yea... that was me. Even the green beans were tiny (both in size and amount). To be honest, I was ready for Taco Bell afterwards to fill the void in my stomach.

• Sunday. Church in the morning followed by laying out at the pool (had a nice chat with Justonian) and ended with Bluegrass & BBQ at Camp Loughridge. Our J-Life kids found us at one of the tables and ate dinner with us. It was great to see all of them and hear their summer stories. I have really enjoyed having Wednesday evenings to ourselves... but I miss those kiddos.

There you have it. Below is a picture of Evalyn. Isn't she a beaut?!

(Evalyn is more than 11 inches long and weighs just over a pound--the size of a large mango)

How did you get a color picture of our sonogram? They only gave us a black and white copy...

Looks like Evalyn/Baby B/Bay-Bee already has a trust fund started.
