1. took the kids to the museum on friday. fours years and counting, and they're still my favorite kids on earth.

3. OKAY SO on saturday night kate and i decided that we should rent a bad movie and spend the night making fun of it (we started this tradition with the movie abduction.) so we rented this LOL movie. and y'all, i did not lol. some of you may have seen the mini live tweet of it, but at some point we had to just stop because there were not even words anymore. i'm torn between telling you to see it to understand what i mean, and advising you to stay the heck away from it. i can't decide. but let me know if any of you have seen it/watch it in the near future.

4. this love of mine. 

in other news, i will not know what to do with myself when the olympics are over. i have not watched other television in days. why would i?! i just love the olympics. it's the one time every four years when my mother and i pretend like we know everything about every sport. "SHE WAS BELOW BY .233, ESSENTIALLY THAT FLOOR SLIDE." i cry at every awards ceremony, even when the us doesn't win. i try to watch it alone whenever possible. i am just too emotional.

hope you're having a great start to your week!


  1. I am right with you crying during the olympics. I think that it is actually getting a little bit out of hand for me haha.

  2. ABBI. Unfortunately I did not read this post earlier this evening...because I literally JUST watched "LOL" with my sister. We had the night to ourselves, and we were like
    "that movie looks TERRIBLE."
    "we will GAG the whole time."
    "...let's get it."
    And we could barely watch some parts because they were so cheesy! We laughed and half DIED and wasted an hour and 40 minutes of our lives. It happened. Please know that we share your pain.
    Other than that...I hope you are well! :)

  3. Don't you love being a nanny?? I adore it. I don't want to do anything else! :P
    BTW TOTALLY loved your live tweets about the LOL movie ;P they made my LOL :)!!!
