what's up wednesday.

Another Wednesday, another edition of What's Up ...

• The OK State fair is going on right now. Unfortunately it only lasts for 10 days and I just don't think we'll make it this year. I wanted to go this evening, but with family coming to town tomorrow and staying through Sunday, I have too many things to pick up/take care of. Next year ...

• Jack and I went to the zoo with my BFF/ his Godmother last weekend {expect a post on that soon!}. First of all, Jack slept until 8 am that morning -- a very welcome change, but not something I think will happen more than one time. And second, we spent 4 hours at the zoo and saw pretty much all of the animals. On the way home I could barely keep my eyes open and ended up taking an hour and half nap.

• My half-marathon training has officially commenced. I ran only 1.5 miles on Monday and 3 this morning. I'm trying not to put too much pressure on myself -- if I don't make it through all of the training and end up doing the relay, there's nothing wrong with that.

• My Etsy store is coming right along. I've put together 4 holiday card options and hope to have a few more soon. And, honestly, I just need to open that thing up ... people need to start making purchases!

• I mentioned that we have family coming to town starting tomorrow. We'll have one of my brothers, his wife and their two crazy kids with us Thursday night. And then, they'll go to a hotel for Friday and Saturday, but my other brother will be staying with us those nights. Should be busy but very fun.

• Who's watching Real Housewives of New York? Who thinks Aviva needs to look at herself on this St. Barths deal? I do. I mean, I realize Ramona totally overreacted {when does she NOT overreact?}, but seriously, Aviva walked in and all she wanted was for everyone to fawn all over her for making it through the plane flights with her husband. Please... a few minutes of "praise" is enough and then move on to what was supposed to be a girls' trip. And, what's wrong with cutting loose on vacation? Nothing. It's vacation!

And, here's a sneak peek at Jack at the zoo:
