What I'm Lovin'

Hey All,
So once again I have had a little hiatus. Nothing bad has been going on, in fact everything has been really wonderful. Since I have been feeling full of happy thoughts, I thought I would share some things that I am loving right now!
The weather is finally getting cool enough that we can venture outside during the day. John had a doctors appointment and we took him to a train park afterward. He LOVED the train ride, making it impossible to get a good picture :) Notice how gnarly my dreads are right now? They are getting tightened up tomorrow :)

Pumpkin Patches! Although, the tractor was a MUCH bigger hit than the pumpkins. Luckily, you don't have to pay to get into that part of the patch so we can go back over and over...and over.

I love how John is getting so independent. He isn't scared to do much which is both thrilling and terrifying for me. I try very hard not to let my fears keep him from exploring. The downside, a few minutes after this picture he fell from that exact rung, which is about 4 feet off of the ground. Luckily he wasn't badly hurt and quickly told me he wanted to do it again.

Crazy hair :) We are trying to grow it long and it does some wacky stuff.

These bangs! Remember how I just said we are growing it out? His bangs were in his eyes all the time, so we got them trimmed. Now he looks like a mix between Lloyd from Dumb and Dumber and Ringo Starr. It makes me smile every time I look at him :)

 Amanda Palmer is currently rocking my world thanks to Miss Courtney!!! LOVE!!!!!
Florence and the Machine has also been on heavy rotation. Lungs (the cd) makes me dance around no matter what I am doing.
 Knitting!!!! I have finally started to learn and have successfully completed one head wrap for my dreads and half a scarf. I still need to learn so much more, as in I only know one stitch but I am still so excited.
The local chapter of this organization is organizing a lecture/gathering about adoption in Phoenix on Nov 6th. This is a subject that is very dear to my heart, but one that I find so overwhelming. I am anxious to go and finally be able to wrap my head around all of the information.

I just love it.


  1. Your dreads are looking awesome! I haven't had a good look at them in a while. I'm so happy you love the WKAP disc...Astronaut is sooo much fun to play on the piano (well, most of them are actually) and let me tell you-you need to get into crocheting! It is SO fast! Way faster then knitting. I took them up in the same week and it's pretty obvious which one stuck better.
    Oh, and here is one of my fav. photo of AFP:
    I also have this photo hanging next to my piano:
    (p.s. I got your email and I am respong ASAP I swear!)

  2. :) we need another play date - and mom date! I love the smells outside right now. FINALLY feels like fall!

  3. thats awesome that you are learning how to knit. i really need to get on the ball for that one ASAP
