well, hey there. you look mighty fine this evening.
today was ten on ten. a photo an hour, for ten consecutive hours. it's legit.
when i woke up this morning, i felt like i was recovering from face surgery.
my head ached incredibly bad.
so, i ignored my husband and child and passed out until 10am.
praise the lord, my headache was gone in a few hours,
and i feel like taking these photos helped in a huge way.
beginning at 10:30ish, here are my ten:
elijah participated in a book exchange. chain letter style. only not annoying.
this was his first book to arrive! he was ridiculously excited to tear into the box,
and since it belonged to him, actually get to keep what was inside.
we read it tonight at bedtime. it's super cute.
truth be told, i am far from a kipper fan. but this book makes me almost like him.
several cups happened today. when patrick's off work, like today,
i usually park myself on the end of the couch, by the windows. drink coffee and chatter with elijah.
it's a good life.
i fixed elijah his favorite gourmet lunch, and gave him my favorite fork.
and by gourmet i mean, chicken nuggets, carrot sticks, apples and chocolate milk.
i scribbled out my grocery list, collected a few coupons and prayed my headache would go away.
the lord answered. i believe he gave me the starbucks idea.
i had a venti shaken black iced tea, unsweetened. it hit the spot. i felt healed.
not quite healed. but after grocery shopping and saving $27.50 with coupons?
i felt super good. praise jesus.
at home we lounged around, watched some gumby on netflix with elijah.
as for this scene i captured, i have no idea what is going on. gumby got into some sort of mess?
with a hedgehog bird? in a playroom?
no matter. eg is in looooove with gumby and pokey. he thinks they're hilarious.
elijah loves anything claymation. shaun the sheep, wallace and gromit and chicken run were his gateway to gumby love.
we headed back out, visited the arcade and the gap. where i found these boss swim trunks for elijah.
fries date with my favorite guys. we get one order to share and water with lemon. just over three bucks.
best treat ever. at least elijah thinks so!
while patrick was getting elijah bathed, i sat on our stoop for some quiet time.
i just enjoyed the beautiful evening light, and a coconut la croix, of course.
p.s. i mentioned on instagram that the paper straws i bought at target were less than awesome.
seems to be that one straw was lame. all the others? wonderful, sturdy and cute as ever.
so, stop by the target party aisle and snag a pack for yourself. you've earned it. or something.
so, did you join in on the ten on ten fun?
