Fun at the Fair and a thank you


This is going to be one of those ADD posts in which I jump all over the place.

You know, the kind you read and think of all these comments to make but in the end you can only comment on one of the 20 subjects covered because you forgot all the rest and don't feel the need or desire to skim through the entire post to comment about each individual topic.

Oh look, something shiny........feeling tired already, feel free to skip to the recap.

First off, may I just say thank you for all your love and support.

Your response to my last post was incredible and I was overwhelmed by the very sweet comments, emails and Facebook messages you all left me.

I feel a million times better and I plan on responding to all you of over the next week.  
The miscarriage is no longer the first thing I think about in the morning, although that could have something to do with the fact that I'm at work by 6:30 am and don't have time to think.

For now my focus is on getting healthy and in shape in preparation for a future pregnancy.


Since then, there has been a lot going on...
we saw this adorable fox at the Orange County Fair, which we almost didn't make it to but we just had to take our annual fair pictures and B had to have his round of fair food.

There wasn't anything I absolutely had to have this year as I didn't see anything I'd never seen before.


I tried to steal this fox but I felt bad when I saw the exhibit guy looking around for a missing turtle and then filing a report for said turtle while I was thinking that it was well within reach of any passers by and it may be on it's way to someones house.

Shall we see how many run-on sentences I can pile into this post?


The restaurants have been jam packed, especially the one at the beach, and sometimes the days feel like marathons but mostly they feel like a series of sprints separated by jumping jacks and burpees.

OK, I don't actually know what burpees are, but I know they have something to do with working out and they sound hard.


Do you see this adorable house?

So cute right?


The whole thing is crocheted!

Every single detail.  Crocheted.

Or is it knitted?  Knit?

I need a second opinion here.


I can't even wrap my head around how long that might take.

Anyone have a guess of how many hours it would take to crochet and/or knit this?


Anyway, it was really impressive.

I wonder what they'll do with it after the fair.


Peanut got to see all these real, live animals.

We spend a good deal of time touching dirty, stinky animals in 100 degree heat.


We also GOT KEYS this week!

We've barely been there as we've been so busy but it's ours!
B and I have only been there together once.... ever.

I can't wait to start moving things in but there are some things we want to get done before we even move in.

We're having the house painted.  Grey interiors.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to pick a grey?
There are like 50 shades of grey!

Yeah, go ahead, make your comment.
I'd like to know who else read that very poorly written, very entertaining piece of smut.
You know, someone besides me.


Who ever takes care of this miniature horse knows how to do better hair then I do.


Just me, the Peanut and a giant cow butt.

I walked away just in the right time, I think everyone else got splattered when she decided to relieve herself.


Big Truck!
Peanut thought this truck and very specifically, this wheel, were the most amazing things ever.


Did you make it this far?

Here is the recap:

Time for bed!


  1. You are hilarious...thanks for the recap. You're right I needed it. First of all I miss fairs. That was one of the Midwest's crowning jewels and here they suck! That house wow!! You have a house... double wow! You better post pics. Pinky swear!! Love the fox. I kinda have a thing for foxes. And your peanut is huge! Miss you. Wish you didn't work, so you could blog more. Oh and I've got insomnia tonight...thus the letter for a comment. Love ya glad you are feeling better. God is good. Okay I'm done.

  2. OH and you need gray owl by benjamin moore. it's the best gray out there. practically my whole house is painted that color.

  3. Me. I read it. All three actually. I just kept hoping for a better plot and guiltily enjoying the smut. Hee hee. Glad you're feeling better. I tried to write comforting words earlier, but every time I tried I just started crying again. Been there more times than I like to count, but have three beautiful children despite it all. (((hugs)))

  4. I just love your optimism, your family, and well, just everything about you! Sending you lots of hugs. That fair looks like so much fun!

  5. Smiles! And my jaw was on the floor when you said how that little house was made. (as someone who does both, I believe it's got both knit AND crochet elements)

    We missed you at the reunion this year but have faith that you (and your expanded family) will make it to the next one...or the next one after that! 2014, here we come!!
