Thought I might try something a little something different and link up with Lisa Leonard’s “Hello Monday” series today!

So, here I go.


Hello cute, bed-headed, sleepy-eyed boys (and their frogs) who still love to crawl under the covers and snuggle with me on mornings when they wake up early:


Hello, time for a haircut:


Hello, fussy, cereal-covered toddler who is still making diapers like she’s afraid she won’t get another chance tomorrow. (It’s better than it was, but six teeth—including molars—at once? Oy vey!)


Hello new schoolbooks, which we’re all a little giddy about.


Hello, pile of Shop My Closet clothes that needs to be sorted, packed, and shipped.


Hello, BODBYCOMBAT choreography that I’ve barely looked at even though I have to have you memorized by Wednesday.


Hello, Maryland. I hope you realize you stole my husband from me this week. Be nice, okay? (Based on this picture, I don’t think I’d mind being there myself right now).


Hello, project scissors. I hope we gonna be tight today.


Hello, brand new deck stairs that my husband and father-in-law worked on aaaaalllll Saturday (two amazing men, I tell you).


Hello, almost 19-week-pregnant belly. Where did you come from?


Hello, pillow inspiration for the new baby’s room (provided she’s a girl, of course).


And hello, lovely readers!

What are you saying hello to today?


  1. Don’t know if I can say hello, ‘cuz I’m thinking good-bye flabby hinder to walking up and down those steps!


  2. Hello crabby mood from me to everyone in my family. A sunny day would have helped. Here’s praying Tuesday is a lot better!

  3. What a fun post! Here, it was hello – LAUNDRY! which then turned into hello moth cleaning (has anyone else been overrun with those critters?), which then turned to hello mopping the floor followed by hello cleaning a ceiling fan……kinda late since all those things have already happened, but still fun!
    cute baby bump btw 🙂 So exciting!

  4. Hello period. You’re three days late. I don’t know whether I’m happy or sad 😉

    Wow those are some tall stairs! You’ll get a workout just from climbing them. I love that pillow in the last picture!

I love hearing from you guys!
