These past two weeks Eloise has started saying some of the cutest little phrases, like: 'Mine do it' & 'Sit' {this one refers to the window when it's going down}, but the one that takes the cake is 'Doing Mama? Doing?'. Isn't that cute?

Yeah...I thought so too. Two weeks ago. Now, it seems like it's all I hear throughout my day. So, yesterday I thought, I wonder how many times a day she says that? That's right - I kept track. I'm that mom. Guess how many times.


62 versions of 'doing Mama? doing?' 'Jessie, doing?' 'Mama Jessie, doing?' 62.

And do I answer her? Yes I do. Because she has to learn what I am doing. Even if it's only answering her questions. :) I answer every time. And most of the time - I don't even use sarcasm. That's love, people.


I was thinking of counting again tomorrow to see if I could get an accurate average...

Tonight I Am....

1. LOVING my new purse. I bought a bundle deal with 2 shells & bought another shell on clearance at my friends party. Then, last night Tim came home from the Rose Festival {where he was one of the official photographers!!!} & surprised me with 2 more shells. Spoiled much?

2. Playing with my Silhouette - making Father's Day cards & Birthday cards for a week filled with friends birthdays.

3. Feeling sentimental about this song:

I bought the piano sheet music tonight & printed it from my computer {hello technology} - went upstairs & sight read it - I was a little proud of myself. I haven't done this in feels good.

4. Enjoying an evening of getting some loose ends around here tied up. :)

5. Wishing the laundry would fold itself & the toilets were the insta-clean kind. Thinking that can all wait until tomorrow.

6. Kind of thankful for the rain - my flowers are very happy.

7. Thankful for a nice low-key weekend. Looking forward to a low-key week as well.

Happy Sunday!

Summer Fun...

Our summer has already begun!! A couple of weeks ago, we went with our lovelies Amanda & Sophia to a couple of nurseries to get some flowers. While there, we gave rides to two sweet little girls:

And we *may* have filled Amanda's trunk with flowers...

We've already been to ID to visit the bestie & families:

And today we discovered a new ** place to play with our friend Margaret & her kiddos. The Willamette Valley Fruit Company. Good pie, adorable boutique & great fun to be had outside? Yes, please!

What a super summer it's starting out to be & the weather is even cooperating this week too!!!
