But today - oh yes, it was bitterly cold, but it was Stake Conference. The kids were giddy to get to sit by dad, and I was riding high from our Saturday Night Grown Up Session date the night before. We went out for pho with a superstar couple in-between the hubs leadership meetings and the glorious 2 hours of uninterrupted listening to speakers (which included an apostle or two, so that was cool).
And miracle of miracles this morning, Thing 3 sat relatively uncrazed for the two hour meeting. It was amazing to not be wandering the halls trying to keep him quiet. He'll be 2 this week (can you believe that??) and maybe - just maybe - I'm seeing the light at the end of the crazed baby stage. THERE IS HOPE.

I keep waiting for a instagram-to-blogger app since most of us bloggers have migrated over to instagram, but no luck so far (you hear that, tech gurus?? Untapped market!).
Until then, I'll just screen-cap some. Which is kind of useless, since most of you follow me on instagram anyway.
But this one is worthy of seeing over and over and over. I was obsessively going over the alphabet with Thing 3 (I admit I'm a total loon) when he turns to me and says "poop." No joke. And his diaper was empty, so I asked him if he wanted to go to the potty. He said yes, which is in itself a big deal since he only just recently branched out from "no" as his sole vocab word.
And then yes, the ONE YEAR OLD POOPED ON THE POTTY. IT WAS MAGICAL. I totally Skyped the husband right then and screamed "POOPOO ON THE POTTY!!!!!" a bunch of times. I'm pretty sure he was in a meeting because I heard laughing in the background, but I have no regrets.
I don't expect this to be the norm, but even once was enough to make my winter day less awful. Have I mentioned how over negative temps I am?? Cuz yeah.
But seriously. Get on that app, nerds.

I'm going with Not Horrible. Then I got so excited I cut some layers into WonderGirl's hair at those look even More Not Horrible.
So now... Pinterest? I admit I've searched for some DIY color options... haven't pulled the trigger yet. At this point all those fire engine red options are looking miiightly tempting...

If I was going to invent up some holiday to sell greeting cards, I'd put it in mid-winter too. Thank heavens some guy with a nifty name and did some nifty thing that we celebrate centuries later with cheesy cards and candy was born or died (I don't know which one it is) in the middle of February.

Fact: Last weekend the husband and I spent some time away from the kids and reality to celebrate our anniversary. It was so blasted romantic (all due to the hubs careful and awesome planning - so glad one of us can do that)and I think we should totally do it again in 10 years. He actually gave me a jar full of the reasons he loves me - ALL the reasons (which is why I hid it as soon as we got home:) and this necklace that has 10 stones surrounding the center -one for each year.
Fact: Oh yeah, it was our TENTH. 10 YEARS. Who called that?? Not anyone who was actually present 10 years ago because I spent most of the day crying and having 14 panic attacks. But YES. It HAPPENED.
Fact: Here is the 10 annual video of our year:
Insert witty closing sentence here. I've been too hazy since nearly killing myself with water to be witty.
