Will Werk for Kandy

How could you resist panhandling from this lil bum?




Trying not to be mad that mom made him stop running around...



Now this is fun!

take note of the Pepsi cans...shameless product plug!  Support my 401k (and my job) and go get some!


Wait, so you mean to tell me I might really get candy?  Well, sign me up!


"Please sir.....can you spare a Snickers?"


And because I can't stand the cuteness, here is the happy hobo once again...


And the sad little shopping cart....it's owner is tucked snuggly in bed.  We decided to bring him home with us instead of sending him on the streets tonight....lucky lil fella!





Hope you had a Happy Halloween!!!!

Mr. Run Around

For about a week or so, Luke's been really close to walking.  Pushing carts and getting brave enough to take a step or two before he sat down.  Well, well, well....guess we caught on video Friday?

Introducing, Mr. Run Around:

video

Kelsey actually took a video of the original video (on mute) so we could share without piercing any ear drums...let's just say we got "a little excited"! 

After that, it was like a marathon this weekend!  We went non-stop ... I guess that's the way it's going to be now but it's still so strange!  Luke is go, go, go!  We play in the cabinets.  Walk to his room.  Walk back in the living room (eat a dust ball or hair ball from the dog, whichever is readily available and he thinks he can get to before I can stop him).  Walk to the front door (lick the window), watch the kids playing outside, walk back to the living room (search for another hairball, etc), walk to the office, push out his truck, walk back to the living room (go straight to the source and pull the hair off directly off the dog) and on and on and on. 






I guess I need to keep the camera handy instead of always using my phone.  I hate how blurry these are!

Anyways, with all this walking around, my little hippie barefoot baby was going to need some shoes.  He has fat wide feet so we haven't had much luck so far finding shoes that he'd leave on.  We went with his NICU girlfriend and her mama to go shopping and grab lunch while the daddies watched the Texas/OU game.  Well, leave it to a new pair of Nike's to make Luke happy.  We are now investing in three more pairs :)

Ew.  Gross!  Who's wrinkled old lady finger is that?  Oh wait, Nevermind.  that's mine! 




I'm guessing videos are about to get way more fun but pictures are going to be infinitely harder.  We'll do our best!  I'm already thinking about Christmas cards so here's to hoping!


Have a great week!

Self Proclaimed ADD

I am well aware that I don't have a medical degree.  And like I've said before, I gave up googling symptoms when Luke was born to save my sanity.  But, I'm 99.99999% sure I have adult on-set ADD/ADHD.

Here goes:

Lunch break. 

I don't typically leave the building but decide to take advantage of the nice weather and head out of the building.  Extra perk that I won't have to eat from the crapateria.

Walking to my car I remember it's due for an oil change. 

Head towards Shop #1.

Realize I have a coupone for $20 off at Store #2-- SCORE! Change my route accordingly.

Digging for the coupon, I find a gift card.  Decide I should go get the hubby a new black belt with the gift card.  Re-route accordingly (thank God turn by turn navigation isn't on...."Recalculating" much???)

Accidentally park at the women's entrance.  Decide to just take a peek around to see if there's anything cute for my upcoming vacation.

Spot an advertisement with cute shoes.  They'd be great for work!

Head to the shoe department.

Find a pair of brown ankle boots I'm pretty sure must somewhat resemble the black peep toe pumps I set out for.  Hmmm...no????

Head to the register anyways--- shoot!  I'm running out of time left in my lunch hour and thirty minutes.

Pay the nice lady.  Walk to the car.

Realize I haven't used my gift card.  Get back out of the car, go inside and sort that mess out. Realize between the sale price and the gift card, I just got boots for $10!  YEA ME!

Head back to the office thinking about what I can wear with my new shoes.  And now, here I sit at my desk...


HUNGRY.
