life lately.

We've been sorta busy recently, and though I have posts in the works, there's no telling when I'll get down to business and put one together. So, in the mean time, here is a bulleted update on all things Divine Mrs. EM.

{they already look like they have inside jokes}

• Late last week we finally found an evening to have dinner with some of our favorite people. Luke is just 4 months younger than our Monster and we have high hopes for them to be the best of friends. When we finally got both boys out of their high chairs after dinner and outside where they could run (and monkey crawl...hah!) around, they were so fun. And all over the place. We have plans to make dinners a lot more regular and I'm so glad we are!

• For two weeks (last week and the week before), Jack and I took to the pool for swim lessons. I'm so glad we did this. The first two days were awful, but every day after that got better. (I will do a whole post on this one) And now, Monster Man is blowing bubbles in the bathtub.


• Last Saturday we had a wedding in Tulsa. Jack stayed with John's parents that night and, as usual I packed his little tiger backpack with all of his one-night essentials. The backpack has straps and it rolls. Usually Jack loves to roll it around, but this particular time Uncle Matt strapped it on, and of course, hilarity ensued.

• Said wedding was for a pledge sister. It was a rare wedding that the BFF and I attended together (more of our girls need to get hitched!), and we had a great time! Owning the dance floor, getting kicked off the band's microphone, Shades, confetti throwers, "WE ARE YOUNG!" sooo fun!

•And, finally, a good friend and I are determined to run the White Rock Half in Dallas in December. But, this means that I'll need be able to run at least 3 miles before I can train for said half. So, now I'm doing a Couch to 5K and yesterday was day 1. I really don't think I'll need all 9 weeks to get back to 3 miles, but at the same time I won't be surprised if it does end up taking me the whole time. Ahhh!!! 13.1 miles here I come (again)! (I really am so excited to run another half. I reallllllly loved running my first one a year and a half ago!)

And, there ya have it!
