Hello all! I hope that September is treating everyone nicely! Out here in SoCal, the sun is fighting to stay, to extend summer for as long as possible! And you know what? I don't mind! Not one bit! Henry, Kate, and I took a walk today, and it felt so, so good to have the sun shining and warming us from above!
With the approach of September came our return to routine and schedules: school, sports and practices, homework, planned meals, dinner with the family. Alison is now a big FIRST GRADER, Henry is in preschool, and Kate is a busy, busy toddler (always underfoot!)! Nothing out of the ordinary in the Rubber Sol household. . . so I thought I'd just chime in. . . dust the cobwebs off of this blog, and complete this fun meme (tagged by sweet Lori!)
5 things in my refrigerator:
1. 4 Gallons of milk (2 whole, 2 skim)
2. Fruit (grapes, strawberries, pineapple!)
3. Leftover pizza!
4. Penne Pesto (a la Chef Hank!)
5. String Cheese (who has kids and doesn't have string cheese?)
5 things in my closet:
1. Shoes, shoes, and more shoes!
3. Bridesmaid dresses (that will never be worn again!)
5. Clothes (regular and maternity!)
5 things in my purse:
1. My handy dandy Blackberry
2. Alison's hair bands
3. A random sock (not mine!)
4. Henry's Happy Meal Hummer
5. Baby Wipes
5 things in my car:
1. Umbrella stroller
2. 3 basketballs, 2 soccer balls
3. Picnic blanket
4. 3 carseats!
5. Baby Wipes! (yes! They're everywhere!)
And last month I had the joy of meeting Claudia, her husband, and her sweet, sweet girls! She graciously took us into her home, fed us, and took us out on a date! And she did this all while being preggers (very, very preggers!). Actually preggers no more; her little one arrived just a few days ago! :) Big hugs and congrats, Claudia! :)
