Blog title #1 : Grins and Grunts
Max is smiling a lot more. It doesn't take as much effort on our part to get him to smile. Now that I think of it, maybe that's why he is smiling more. His mom and dad aren't 2 inches from his face making a zillion different funny sounds just to get a glimpse of that sweet, heart melting smile.
Blog title #2: Our Missing Piece
On Thursday, Wes and I went to Chicago for a mini-getaway. This was the first time that we have gone away since Max has been born. I'm sure my parents were thrilled to be able to have him for a couple of days, but it was strange to be without him. We would be in the car and I would start to say something to Max or I would look back at the mirror to see his cute little reflection that wasn't there. It's amazing how someone who has only been in your life for 2 months can so quickly become such a huge part of your life. It's good to have our puzzle complete again. :)
While in Chicago:
We went to an ice cream store that we had seen on the Food Network called i cream. Check out the website. It's amazing how they make the ice cream. I had pomegranate green tea ice cream with gummy bears and Wes had Key Lime Pie ice cream.
We did some people watching. Top winners: A very classy 30-something in a business suit, pearls and very high heels on a mo-ped and this.
Hopefully, you can see the horse-like dog in the back.
We found some adorable cupcake/cake soaps at Mojo Spa.
We met up with Matt and Abby at Holiday Inn and had a late night run to McDonald's. Much talking and lots of laughs.
We went to the BMW Championship Golf tournament. We had beautiful weather and got to see some great golf and some really cool golf clothes. Golfers with my favorite attire: Dustin Johnson and Matt Jones
Blog title #3: Confessions of a Teacher
Being a teacher, I would love to say that I read for enjoyment all of the time. I don't. It's not that I don't like reading. I actually love to read. I think I just forget that I love to read.
Here is the ultimate confession: I have never read a book that has been made into a movie. I'm going to fix that. I decided to read Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. I've never seen the movie in it's entirety either. We'll see if I get to say what every avid reader has said at least once in their life, "The book was SOOOOO much better than the movie."
Sidenote: Blog brain is very similar to a condition I had in college...Tetris brain. My friend Abbie's gameboy (I have 2 fabulous Abigails in my life) was often found in my possession. I would play it so much that when I would go to bed, my brain would still be placing the pieces into their proper place.
