here he is!

Sorry, but, this is one of like 3 things on my mind since saturday. And no one wants to talk about xango or bleeding cuticles. (seriously. they won't stop bleeding. And I haven't done anything about it. and they just keep bleeding.) If you don't wanna squish that little face, you aren't human.

baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby baby

John David Harber was born last night/this morning I guess. That makes 5 bunnies for my sister and 13 bunnies for our family. Nothing makes me happier than brand new babies. I guess you probably already knew that. And I get so proud of my siblings/siblings-in-law when I see them being parents. The whole "being escorted by police to the hospital and having the baby 3 minutes later" thing is just an extra touch Sarah likes to put in sometimes. Ahhh. My body actually hurts, I want to see him so bad. If I knew how to get pictures from my phone to my computer, I'd show you. But just know that he's new and pink and squishy and looks like Will and is the sweetest.

it came! it came! it came!

I'd nearly forgotten about this treasure being on its way to my hands but when Megan turned the corner with that book-shaped package I immediately began giggling. And I haven't really stopped. I almost want to say I'd buy this for anyone that wants it because it makes me that happy. And I want you to be that happy.

K is my favorite. Now hang on hang on. It's not JUST because that's My Letter, it's also because the K arm and leg come out like little critter ears and it's just so freeeakin adorable.

new policy, purchase 3

These are the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. And they're cuter (I think?) than this picture suggests. They're all over the internet and even all over real life. But you can find em here if you're the kinda person that likes going straight to the source.

empty nesters

My parents returned to Henderson, NV this week. Which means I am officially alone in this city. And they'll find themselves in an empty house in Henderson for the first time also. One that's been standing empty for the last 4-ish months, nonetheless. I'm having withdrawals. I hate being the only one here and knowing that the nearest family member is 3+ hours away. I realized today that that's the furthest I've been from family since I left home. I don't care if I'm being a baby about it. I'm only 23. I AM a baby. 

And speaking of my parents, sometimes people ask me what it's like having a mom with cancer and all that jazz. And the only way I can really describe it is that it's an entirely different universe to live in. One with a whole new set of rules and laws. A whole new set of cares and concerns. The norms of this universe are not the norms of any other universe I've been a part of. Which provides plenty of adjustment issues. Because you don't leave the previous universe. I still go to work/live every day and associate with people that have no idea about this new universe I'm living in. Sometimes it gets a little tricky keeping the universes straight and staying within the appropriate parameters of each. And the thing about this universe is that if you're not in it, you're not in it. There's no way to describe someone into it. Which makes it tricky for outsiders trying to deal with people inside it. I try to remember that. And I try to remember that other people are probably in all kinds of universes that I have no idea about. And hopefully my venn diagram of universe living will lean heavier and heavier toward the normal life circle as these days go by. But I don't think universes ever disappear from the diagram once they've been introduced. Cuz, how could they? Once you've been in a universe, you don't just forget it. I mean, it's a universe!

every time i buy gray jeans, they aren't really gray. it's getting old.

proving it

the most substantial evidence I could think of to quantify for you my business lately is this: 

—I've gone FIVE days without burt's bees chapstick (and resorted to using that ^ peppermint whatever stuff I found somewhere in my room and kinda turns my lips purple) because I have no time/energy to go to smith's to buy a replacement for the one I lost
—I haven't had a nighttime bowl of cereal in even longer because I'm too worn out by the time I get home to leave my room once I enter it
-also-STRAWS! i'm out of straws! and i haven't bought new ones. Luckily I have some permanent plastic straws that are all stripey and cute that I can always rely on. But they don't bend. And you have to wash them.

Now, having said that, I have a few minutes of quiet here today (our email's down so i'm sure there's an inevitable flood on the horizon but there's nothing I can do about it!), with which I'd like to share a few things: 
The salt lake farmer's market was ON POINT with its fresh flowers last Saturday. They were perfect for the bridal shower we had for the one and only V
(Where she got the same present twice, twice)

And they're still perfect, 5 days later, bringing happiness to me at my desk:

(cool ducking. i know.)
