missing you

This is the only photography going on around here lately.

Hey, everybody!

Well, I miss this blog. I have been crafting a little. Cautiously. However, as usual at this homemade holiday time of year, I can't share any of it because it would spoil the surprise. I have a mental list of a thousand things I'd like to be making and can't. I had some tutorials in mind for you guys and I just can't. I just have to let it go.

*whooshing sound of crazy craft delusions rising out of head*

Physical therapy is helping, thanks to the good Lord!

Besides my decrepit body issues, also contributing to blog silence is the usual (and fun) Christmas hurly burly whirl of activities and engagements. Not to mention my birthday coming up. Which I've always felt is highly inconvenient. (Why oh why couldn't I have been a June baby?)

This birthday is a BIG ONE. That starts with a four. Gah! And I've just found out that my dear, sweet schmoopie is whisking me away for a surprise birthday long weekend to goodness-knows-where. (Huge thanks to his wonderful parents who will be hosting our girls.) So I'll update you later on the mystery birthday excursion.

Cutest 6 Mos Old in the World, taken by Thing 1.

As if that wasn't enough, my BFF came to visit me this past weekend! And she brought with her the cutest, best, smiliest 6-mos old baby in the whole wide world. No joke, people. I got out of the car to meet them at the airport pickup and there he was, the crazy-haired blond angel baby, absolutely beaming love-rays at me. Oh! Be still my heart.

Robyn and I had the best time together, ate delicious girl food and did some super terrific fun stuff. I still can't believe I was dumb enough to take her to Lenox mall on the day of the SEC championship. But it was still fun. She also graciously offered to reveal the mysteries of crochet to me, but alas, time did not allow. R, next time I WILL learn to crochet! Thank you for my delicious birthday dinner! Miss you!

I hope you all are having a peaceful, fun-filled Christmas season too. See you soon.


  1. really random question, but do you know the name of the color on the walls in that first picture? I've been wanting to paint our bedroom, but can't decide on a color!

  2. hey, amy.
    random questions always allowed. it is Benjamin Moore 723, 'spring rain'.

  3. Happy Birthday!

    (I also have THAT birthday coming up... in January. I don't know whether to be excited or full of dread.)

  4. Take the time you need. We'll still be here when you get back.

    Happy Birthday! :)

  5. Soooo glad last weekend worked out... Love you and miss you, too!

  6. You have enough of a back catalog to keep us happy revisiting old posts. Happy birthday - enjoy your mystery weekend.

  7. I love the little candy cane you added to your title bar. Nice colors too. Forty is the new thirty so I wouldn't worry too much. I turned forty in June and don't feel a bit different. I will say that growing up my June birthday fell after school was out and so I never got the birthday funday at school and people would be on vacation so they couldn't come to my party. I did like having it in the summer though. Happy almost birthday!!
