blogging from seattle

woo hoo! go me! blogging from seattle. although, I have no photos to post, so that will have to wait.
but we are having a good time, jack is doing really well - except that he's on a pooping spree & we purchased a generic brand of diapers when we got here so we have had a few leaks. no worries - I got some huggies yesterday. phew!
heading to do a little shopping today - our last day here.
we did some sightseeing stuff monday, yesterday we took the ferry to bainbridge island, so today is shopping! and I'm not usually much of a shopper, but there are some nice stores around here (and they're all close) that I don't normally get to go to - i.e. lululemon!! wonder if I should mosey into gucci... ;)
I'm a little bummed - we were going to head to a town called woodinville to tour the red hook brewery & two wineries. we found out last night that the cab ride would be atrocious & if we rented a town car, it would cost $55-60 ONE WAY. so we decided to nix that trip. :( guess we'll save the brewery & winery tours for a different trip.
that's all for now - will post pics later!

morning poop

sooo, yeah. I finally have time to blog. and I get to report what I woke up to this morning. as most of my blogging friends are already moms, you've probably been through this before, but it was a first for ben & I.
poop! poop everywhere!
I thought I was being spoiled when it was 7:30 and jack still wasn't up yet. then we hear him so both ben & I go in - poop everywhere. poop coming out of his diapers & jammie pants. poop smushed into the sheets. poop wiped on the crib padding. poop wiped all over the rail. I picked him up and noticed it was all over his hands. for some stupid reason I kissed his cheek & realized I had just kissed poop. it was all over one cheek, one ear & in his hair.
so needless to say, we went straight to the bathtub this morning. and NOW I can say everyone & everything is cleaned up and poop free. but that sure was fun.
I'm just thankful ben didn't encounter that yesterday morning when I was already at work. I'm also thankful he can be a little late to work to stay and help me.
I'm really not that grossed out- I deal with poopy animals all the time. it's just that they're not pooping on pottery barn kids crib sheets/padding!!
I know, I know, welcome to parenthood. :)

I'm still here, just overwhelmed with my to do list.
I don't understand how you awesome mommies have time to get on here & update everyone AND get everything else done.
maybe I'll learn...

I was tagged by erica, and I think I was tagged by diane, but I'm not sure. now if I could just figure out how to tag...

1- What’s your staple meal?
bierock casserole. no question. yum!!!

2- What do you want to be when you grow up?
besides a veterinarian, a part time stay at home mommy. I want to be very involved with my kids so I only want to work part-time.

3- What book are you reading at the moment (if any)?
haven't started a new one yet. ben gave me kite runner to read - maybe this weekend at the lake...

4- How do you relax?
going for a run. that's my me time.

5- What color are the interior walls of your home?

6- What is your guiltiest pleasure?
food - goat cheese & crackers or chubby hubby
tv - the bachelorette. I know, I'm horrible.

7- What time is bedtime and getting up time?
bedtime is usually 10. wake up time ranges - if I'm working, it's between 5:15 & 6:30, if not, it's however long jack (& ben) will let me sleep. :)

8- How long do you spend reading blogs (per day or per week)?
I keep forgetting about them, so I'd say I only view them for about 20 minutes once or twice a week. more if I'm not working as much.

I have to tag 2 people: lindsay & mel :)
curious to see if my tagging worked...
