Stuff & Things

Per usual, here is an update about all the stuff that has been going on in my life as of late-- specifically this past week/weekend. I totally dropped the ball (again) and didn't do a 'Sustainable-Saturday' post, but I don't feel too lousy about it.. there will be more Saturdays and more sustainable stuff in the future, I promise. Seriously. Serrrioousssllly.  

Fun stuff:

I did finally make a choice and bought a digital slr camera! I chose the Nikon d5100, for those wondering, and it should be here any day now! With the purchase of this camera came the weird sense that I'm really doing this... I mean, I'm really taking this blogging thing seriously and hopefully, my pictures and quality of photos will reflect that.

We went to my friends wedding and it was beautiful! I just love me a good wedding.

We ate at B.J. Willy's Woodfired Pizza and Pub when Matts mom came to visit, The food, service, and even the view (out to a pond) was great. We walked down to the pond after eating.

Olin had his first swim lesson! For some reason, and keep in mind this is his very first lesson/group activity/kid activity outside of the house thing that he has done, I feel like he is all the sudden grown up. I mean he's gonna be in high school soon then college then having a family of his own in no time!!!! Okay... so maybe it will take a few years for all that to come to fruition, but for some reason, with the start of this class, I feel like we/he have entered a new chapter... he's becoming a real... kid?!
Lastly, Matt cooked! He's been doing lots of that recently and as it turns out, he's a pretty fantastic cook. I'll post his salmon recipe tomorrow. 


  1. nooo! don't remind me of how little my babies used to be!!! It's true, they grow up way to fast and it's just not fair :(
    He looks so adorable though with his little "I did it and now I'm freezing" smile. Must be nice having the hubby cook for you!(and it looks delicious to!)


    1. haha it is so true!! :( I want him to grow and experience new things.. but it's so darn hard seeing/ experiencing him grow up so fast.

  2. Yay for a new camera!!! Your friend looks so beautiful in her dress.
