Five on Friday

1. There are three things almost guaranteed to make Claire laugh - blowing raspberries on her tummy, doing sit-ups with her sitting on your chest, and playing peek-a-boo. I say almost guaranteed because as soon as she sees the video camera, she must realize "Oh, it's another chance to make my parents look ridiculous for all of posterity!" and refuses to let a giggle escape.

Peach Cobbler

2. One of the things I love about Seattle is all the fresh, local produce available. This week, I bought some peaches that were begging to be made into a cobbler. I am also loving the nap time that allowed me to make said cobbler! 

Homemade Butter

3. The whipped cream accompanying that cobbler was actually our second attempt. Last night, we put some whipping cream in the Kitchen Aid and started watching an episode of Monk. Despite our periodic checks, we soon had butter on our hands. So now I have an excuse to make pancakes this weekend?

New Anthro Shirt

4. I picked out three shirts on the Anthro clearance rack last weekend and brought them home to get Adam's input. Once the "extra 25% off sale" bells were no longer ringing in my ears, I quickly realized two of them were definite no's. I was on the fence about the third top, but during the two minutes I was trying it on, I somehow managed to spill something on myself. I guess that makes me the owner of a new shirt! At least it matches my favorite {elastic waist!} skirt. Don't tell me you haven't noticed that I'm wearing it in every other picture on here.

Long Overdue Trip to Post Office

5.  Well, I am off to make a very long overdue trip to the post office with a baby in tow. Wish me luck!

    1. nope! just some extremely late baby gifts and some photos of claire for her great-grandparents.
