And Now

The perfect way to spend a very breezy yet peaceful Sunday after a hurricane. Cinnamon waffles with fresh peaches and an entire season of Project Runway. Maybe some unpacking if we get ambitious.

(We woke up a few times in the night to check out the crazy winds/rains but no major damage around here. Just a new giant pond for Prospect Park and a freezer full of frozen water bottles for us. Pretty lucky cuz we still get to say we lived through a hurricane but we haven't actually had to deal with anything unpleasant. Please bless that continues.)

Who's Next?

Chatting with Baby Milo- best way to pass the time waiting for a hurricane to hit us. Hands down.

The Last Wedding

I can't believe we're all married. We had 5 weddings in 5 years then none for 7 years then 3 in the last 18 months. It's just crazy that we're all paired up now. I love it. Anyway, here are a million pictures: (mostly of babies. the real ones I stole from Lacey)

Maggie wins this one. Or maybe Will. Or John.
Not sure why I can't stand normal
3 Cheers at the luncheon
Liza Loo
I think these guys should always wear bowties
girl cousins
Only answers to Buckwild

Shaggy Cute Owen
Part of something much greater than this
Maddy always shows Bear a good time
Grandma teaching Anna some moves

Things I'm Learning (part 1, I'm sure)

I don't care for humidity (silver lining: I don't need any lotion here)
I need an iphone
"Close" is a very relative concept
How to not be freaked out by the fact that there are always going to be lots of people around me
Even "nice" air mattresses aren't that nice
I may have brought too much stuff (still, somehow, even though it's about 50% of what I owned 3 months ago)
I don't own comfortable shoes
I really like parks (in the daylight)
I'm not much of a solo adventurer
It rains a lot in New York in August (but "Just wait for Fall!!" They tell me)
Being a mormon is probably going to really save my life out here

There are so many things I am not believing

John and Lacey are married.
Our family reunion was awesome but obviously way too short.
I have a husband again!
I live in New York now.
I need to find a job somehow.
Our place is perfect minus the gunk that comes with really old buildings. For example, we have a wooden toilet seat. But we're working on that.
Everyone in our ward is so nice. And mostly from Utah. And everyone has awesome careers.
It's been pouring rain since I got here and I haven't minded at all.
I have no idea how we're going to get our 1600 pounds of stuff up our 4 stories of stairs.
Regan committed me to go on one individual venture today but I don't know if I'm ready for that.
Groceries are expensive and grocery stores are tiny.
Sleeping/living on an air mattress feels a lot like sleeping/living on a water bed. I bet.
So far, I feel like I'm just on vacation.

I'm Living in a Pile of Piles

To sell to strangers
To sell to family
To pack for wedding/reunion
To pack for New York
To give to family
To give to friends
To give to DI
To store indefinitely

Sure is fun!
