Nephew Sit!

I’m spending the next 4 days nephew-sitting while my sis and her hubby are in Grand Caymen.

Yup, you heard right. They are spending 6 glorious days in Grand Caymen and my parents and I are tag-teaming the baby-sitting. I’m super stoked to spend a few days bonding with Will (and not working)!

This morning started off great. I woke up and was craving a smoothie, Kath style. She calls them a SIAB (Smoothie In A Bowl).

Greek yogurt, mixed berries, milk, ice, and a blender aaaand…


topped with super chewy granola and honey. It’s like eating a bowl of ice cream for breakfast. I ate out on my porch (which is one of my favorite things in life!) while I watched Deb’s cat wander the yard and listened to my Stevie Wonder pandora station. It put me in the BEST mood! Here’s a few samples-


Does anybody else think of this episode of The Cosby Show when the hear “The Right Time?”

I love Rudy in this clip!

The music carried me through breakfast, packing and all the way the the airport to pick up my dad!

My mom has been here since Thursday, but my dad flew in today to join in the babysitting expedition. We drove in to Ft. Worth while we chatted about Teddy Roosevelt, the Civil War, and books. =)

We spent the rest of the day hanging out with the nephew.



And best of all, Will is 2 months old today! Since Em and Freddie aren’t here, we took his 2-month pictures in his chair. I realize I’m biased, but seriously, could he be more cute???


And look how much he’s grown in the last month!


Apparently he can also stay awake longer. Winking smile

The weather is also GORGEOUS this weekend, as it has been for the past week. The snow and ice was fun for a few days, but it’s so nice to have spring come early! I thought the groundhog was lying there for a while, but it turns out he was right. And today was the first day to rock the chacos!


The rest of our day involves mom making chicken-fried steak and watching the Baylor basketball game.

Lots of things I adore!
