Daybook~ Happy Anniversary

For Today...June 27, 2010

Outside my's summer, and we are enjoying every minute. It is so very hot and humid in Houston right now, but I love being able to spend time with all the kids. And the kids love being outside despite the weather. Which means I am spending a lot of time outside!

I am listening to...Everclear.

I am shorts and a blue shirt with flip flops.

I am wondering...why all Catholics don't go to church on a regular basis. I know it sounds judgemental, but it drives me crazy. And makes me sad. It makes me wonder how many people are just Cultural Catholics and those that try to practice their faith. Like me, who now needs to get to confession for being a judgemental witch.

From the kitchen...I'm doing pretty good on getting real meals on the table. We are happy about that around here. I also made a blueberry coffee cake last week. So good and so easy. It was gone in a day.

On keeping's time for a deep clean. I've been putting it off, but no more. Wednesday is the day.

To be fit and happy...I have a sick kid, which means I am not working out this week.

I am thankful mom and dad who are making the next days at the Houstonian possible for me and Lance to celebrate our anniversary. Thank you so much guys!!!

I am praying little boy who has a massive eye infection. We're not sure what it is, but it is not getting better. We're off to the ER soon to get some answers, I hope.

To live the liturgy...We had Super Saints last week and had a blast. We saw some old friends and the boys talked about Jesus' unending love for them all week. I am noticing that Goose is so interested in the Eucharist now. I am trying so hard to say the right things about this so he doesn't wake up one day and say, "I never knew that", like I did.

From the learning rooms...still looking for that Globe pen. I have even offered a money reward, but so far nothing. My mom bought Goose the globe a couple of Christmases ago and was iffy about it. This has turned out to be a great gift for the entire family. We're still reading and exploring ideas we find in our stories. Last week, we learned about the Unicorn Tapestries in a Magic Tree House book, then looked them up online. We found out where they were made and where they now hang. Goose is anxious to see them in person. Maybe in a few years.

One of my favorite things...spending alone time with each boy. They so deserve time alone, which isn't always easy.

A few plans for the rest of the week...
  • a quick (hopefully) trip to the ER
  • the Houstonian to celebrate our anniversary for a few days
  • spa day on my anniversary and Faberge exhibit at the museum
  • lunch
  • Austin for the 4th, assuming I have healthy kids

No pictures to share just yet...will have lots of wedding pictures on my anniversary!


  1. Oooh....have fun at the Houstonian! And Happy Anniversary!

  2. Thanks! Should be great, although we do have an extra passenger with us. Hoping he is well enough to stay with Mimi tomorrow night! The best plans don't always work in our favor!

  3. Oh Nicole I hope the boy with the eye infection gets better soon & it's not serious. You & Lance need to enjoy your anniversary sans kiddos!
    All of our best laid plans never seemed to pan out when the boys were growing up. Oh well that's life & part being a parent.
