This Morning

Alright, so the trip over was wonderful. I will always ask to stay an extra night in Frankfurt then fly to Portland- awesome. OK, so as I said before everything went well- we even made friends with a flight attendant. Really nice woman who was 3 months pregnant, so we had some things to talk about. Emma slept and slept. God was so kind to me and all the people on board the plane. After we arrived at the airport, we took the MAX to pick up our car at Eastside Church and then drove home. We did all of nothing. Hung out, I dusted, gave Emma a bath, did 2 loads of laundry (yuck!) and watched a movie. Trav had a shower and was ready for sleep- but it was only 2 pm! None the less, Travis and Emma fell asleep half way into the movie but it was good- Becoming Jane– and then around 5pm I took Emma to her bed, and tucked myself into mine. Travis rolled himself in sometime later. At 9pm Emma woke up- then at 11pm she woke up again- 1am woke up- 2am woke up, and finally at 2:30am I gave up on having her sleep. So I took her downstairs, made some pancakes, lit a few candles and listened to jazz music on the radio. It is 3:50am right now and Emma is happily chewing on a coaster and I have about 7 pancakes for Trav when he gets up.
I think I’m going to do some creative writing after this. I haven’t had the opportunity since not having a laptop. But since my mom got me one- let the creative-ness flow!

Oh and I’m SO looking forward to 4 things this week.
1. Get my hair cut!
2. Find an unbelievably irresistible outfit for Emma for Halloween pictures this year.
3. Go grocery shopping! My cupboards are empty.
4. Decide on a day to go pumpkin picking- I LOVE Autumn.

Thanks for visiting! I'm a happy mom and wife who loves the smell of books, traveling and food. I like dreaming about alter egos, snuggling with Emma and going on dates with hubby,Travis. Pretty much anything creative I'm into. I hope you enjoy my rants and raves and come back soon. Oh, and I love comments so please feel free to let me know what you think!
  1. Where do you go to get the pumpkins? We went to Suavie Island last year. Should make a double date out of it… And hit a coffee shop afterwards for some cider and hot water!

  2. lol, thanks for the hot water. We go to a place in Sandy. Leopald Farms. Enjoy your nap.
