iPod Accessories

I love looking for new Ipod accessories. I love my iPhone, and I would love to have better ways to utilize it. For example, I want to get a cord to connect it to my TV so we can watch videos we take or TV shows and movies that we download on the big screen.

I also want to get an under-the-counter iHome for the kitchen. It would take up less space than the iHome we have on the counter, and there’s less of a chance of anything getting on it. Then, we could either move that iHome into our room or Lucy’s room, since she’s getting Joe’s old iPod Touch. If we move it into our room, it would be nice to get an iHome for Lucy’s room as well so we can play her music in there on it.

One of the Best Parts of Working from Home…

…is that I don’t have to dress up as much anymore. Yes, I dress up when I have meetings to cover, which is several times a month. But, the rest of the time, I do what I need to wearing jeans. That’s my kind of dress code.

Of course, I it would be nice to be able to work completely in pajamas, or even nursing uniforms because scrubs are so comfy, but I’m not going to complain. I’ve got it pretty good right now, I think.


I’ve been thinking about the past a lot lately. I’m not sure why, but I’ve gotten a little nostalgic.

I remember when we were younger and my family had a weekend house in Virginia, we had this huge, old TV in our living room by the wood burning stove. It was black and white, and we had to use rabbit ears, so we really didn’t get much in the way of TV channels. Oh, the days of analog tv. These days, everything is digital and in HD. It will be interesting to explain the way things were to Lucy when she gets older.

Birthstone Jewelry

So, I am kind of obsessed with birthstone jewelry. I have several pieces with my birthstone, aquamarine, and now I want to find a piece or two of november baby birthstone jewelry to represent Lucy. I have my hand stamped necklace with a charm that represents her birthstone, but I would like a necklace or something with her actual birthstone on it.

Do you guys have birthstone jewelry to represent your kids?

Electric Cars

Joe and I have been talking about our next car. We’re hoping to go one year with our current cars after we pay Joe’s car off next year before replacing mine.

We’ve pretty much decided that we are going to get an electric car. Gas prices are insane these days, and it really makes much more sense to purchase an electric car. And, by 2013, they are supposed to have electric SUVs on the market, which will be perfect since we definitely need more of a family car, without the yakima bike racks.
Is an electric car on any of your minds?

Growing Slowly

Lucy is a TINY girl. She will be 18-months-old on Saturday, and she still cannot fit in her 12-month jeans. They fall off whether or not she’s wearing shoes, but if she IS wearing shoes they don’t fall off as fast.

All day at the arthritis walk on Saturday, people would tap us on the shoulder and ask us if we were aware that our daughter’s pants were falling down. Yes, as Joe’s mom likes to say, Lucy looks like she’s wearing hip hop clothes.

I’m anxious to see what she weighs at her 18-month checkup!
