I’m not a huge royal enthusiast, but it is SO great seeing happy news on front pages today, for once! Kate, Wills, and the royal munchkin are so adorable. And Kate looks amazing. I hope I look that glowing and fabulous when I’m a new mom.
CNN correspondent Victoria Arbiter would like to extend her sincerest congratulations to the Duchess of Cambridge. Nice, right? Except, wait .. she’s not so much congratulating Kate Middleton for giving birth to a healthy baby. She’s congratulating her for giving birth to a healthy baby boy.
Way to go, CNN… this is the 21st century, for goodness sake!
My pretty baby helped me with my makeup this morning. She was especially adept with my bronzer! #cat #catsofinstagram #MissBean #cheekrubs
Chuck gets home in a little over 48 hours!!! I can’t believe it’s *almost* here! It’s going to be so strange, taking him to a house he’s never seen before, and that’s been all mine. I’m also curious to see how Miss Bean reacts – she has only recently gotten comfortable taking over his spot in the bed!
I did finally unpack his clothes and found space for them in the closet (kinda.) I went to the grocery store and got some of the things I know he likes most – bacon, mozzarella cheese, ground beef, Italian sausage… My grocery bill has effectively doubled…
Our August is going to be very busy as we prepare for guests and moving out – plus I’ll still be working. But I am grateful for a long weekend where it’ll just be the two of us to readjust to life together and catch up beyond the idle chit chat of our e-mail convos.
But first, I need to finish up all my remaining Sex and the City episodes… FAST!!

There are many things to love and to hate about my “hometown” Washington, DC. One thing to love, apparently, is cheap international flights! Here I am, searching flights to London from Atlanta, and from Rome back to Atlanta, thinking it’s the best I’m going to get since ATL is a major international hub…
But then on a whim, I plug in IAD… and HOLY COW they are almost half the price! Completely unfair! Maybe, if Chuck gets orders back to the DC area after Fort Benning, we can just do the EuroTrip after we move, and before he starts work 🙂 Flying out of DC sounds much, much gentler on the wallet… Who knew?!
Of course, Lord only knows when we’ll find out where we’ll be that time of year anyway. The planner in me is getting annoyed!

This is the most reasonable and insightful article I’ve read all week in regards to the Zimmerman trial. I wish people wouldn’t brush past the details. I’m so tired of reading uninformed, angry, hateful posts on here.
Bravo to the Onion…(for those of you who are quick to anger, the Onion is satire…i.e. this isn’t an actual juror)…but doesn’t say something when the Onion is more truthful and insightful than our own “trusted” media? (NBC doctoring the 911 tapes comes to mind)
Thanks to Nikki for the share 🙂
