Catching up.

Have you ever had that feeling where you've been hit by a truck? Ok maybe not that bad - but your skin hurts? On Sunday I came down with whatever was keeping William subdued all day Saturday. It's fun! A nice unproductive cough, and you don't want to do anything but rest! But I guess that's what you're supposed to do when you're sick. Happily, Evie has been most helpful recently, and Matt was here to take care of the little ones. William wasn't much trouble because he hasn't been feeling too hot himself.

Some things that have happened recently:

- The baby robins are no more. They were there last Sunday when I got back from Austin, and when I went out to take a picture on Monday afternoon, the nest was empty. It never occurred to me to worry about them, but apparently it had been on Matt's mind. Evie is choosing to believe they all learned to fly away extra early :)

- If you missed it, we finished our master bathroom! Mostly. Go HERE to read all about it.

- It appears the rain and cool weather we've been having has passed! Welcome to hot, humid Virginia and dead grass :)
Speaking of hot, humid Virginia - when I was in Austin last week, Vivienne met us in baggage claim wearing the CUTEST hat! And I thought to myself, THAT is the answer to my summer hair problems. Or at least part of the answer. She's big on hot rollers. Anyway - as I have no hair talent, and a big giant head, I picked up this fedora at Kohls today - men's section of course, all the ladies' are 'one size fits most' - but not me. Now, Matt questions whether I'm edgy enough to wear a fedora out in public. Edgy was his word - he thinks I'm edgy, but apparently not in a fashion way. So I'm going to put it out there for you all - hat? or no hat? And I am going to try and be better at keeping up with blogging - mine, as well as the ones I like to read :)

Our giveaway, where you have to guess who said what in Austin, is still running, click HERE to read the post and enter if you like. Happy Wednesday!


  1. Momma you are rockin the hat!!! I love it - not edgy - totally cute!!!!

    Miss you!!!


  2. I love the hat! You can totally rock that.

    Tell Matt to Suck It!

    Do not let people tell you that you can't wear a hat. It's bullshit. They just wish they looked as good as you do and they are jealous.

  3. Yes to the hat! Super cute! Don't you love it when the husband weighs in on fashion advice? It always cracks me up.

    I'm choosing to believe right along with Evie, by the way ;)

  4. Yep, you look cute in the hat! :)

  5. I don't see you in that hat at all.
    Sorry....don't hate me.

    I love the hat, and you do look cute...but knowing you, I don't think "fedora" when I think of you... unless you are pairing it with giant sunglasses, a short sundress, cowboy boots, and a whole lot of city girl attitude. I am thinking something more simple, feminine, and pretty for you. Something breezy and beach-y...
    But what the hell do I know?

    Try it with some lingerie and stilettos...see if Matt thinks thats's edgy enough :-)

  6. I, too, just got a fedora because I suck at hair and particularly hair in summer! All I have to say is this:

    Yes, we can.

  7. YOU MUST KEEP THE HAT AND WEAR IT IN PUBLIC FOR ALL TO ENJOY! It's completely 100% adorable! Fo real, Yo! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the 2nd picture. It needs to be your profile pic on fb! Oh so cute!!

    You and Viv and ROCK a cute hat. That is for sure!!

  8. Love the hat...just throw on bigger earrings! So cute!!!
