Snippets #2 { 10.11.2011} Week in my Life – Monday

So that was a long title….yeah. Anyway, I waffled back and forth about participating in Adventuroo’s Week in Life project – it seemed like a big commitment and if I was going to do it, I wanted to do all 7 days or none at all.

In the end I decided it would be fun to participate but I’m going to do some things differently- I didn’t take any photos yesterday and I planned on this post this week anyway capturing some of the things Bun and I are into right now. So I’ll probably do some traditional posts for tuesday and thursday and maybe the rest of the day will be snippets like this or not…I’m not quite sure yet. But I’m committed to blogging the next 7 days in a row. Thats going to be a record

These Snippets are for the past 2 weeks

Reading-   A Life of Spice. I’ve really slacked off on reading this month because I’ve found my mojo on the interwebz lately. So I’ve been reading a lot of blog, and some photoshop tutes

Watching: Breaking Bad is rocking my world right now! I can’t believe I almost gave up on that show. We have the season finale DVRed, but haven’t watch it yet. I ❤ Jesse so much!

Listening: 90s throwback. J and I recently watched the top 100 songs of the 2000s on VH1 while we were super wined up on a saturday night and it has brought back all these memories. So I’ve been playing some late 90s early 00s pop classics like “Since You’ve been gone” and “Mr. Brightside” and “Hey Ya” and dancing around with the kiddo

Wearing: Its fall! My favorite pair of jeans are out and I even rocked some black leggings last week.

Wanting: These Rainboots  and a return of normal naptime for the Bun

Reading: Hooray for Fish. Bun really liked some of the books in the Maisy series so I checked this one out from the library since it was by the same authors. Oh, its been such a big hit that I think we might have to buy it. Its colorful and adorable and the words are so easy to say that he has most of it memorized

Watching: Have you heard of the Wonder Pets? They help baby animals and save the day. The show is cute but the entire song is sung and the theme song will forever be stuck in your head. Highly Highly annoying. It has taken over our lives-  Bun loves it though and asks for it constantly and even sings the theme song in the car.

Wearing: I’ve pulled out most of Bun’s fall clothes but I’m still trying to squeeze in some summer outfits for the warm afternoons, since I know it will be the last time he’ll ever wear them.

Playing: Closing doors is the most fun game in our house right now. He goes into rooms and shuts the door and then giggles and giggles. That and cars.

{March 2} Quick Peek

One of the downsides of being a WAHM to a toddler is that I don’t have as much time on the internet as I used to. I now no longer have time to keep up with a lot of the cool hipster, fabulous girls about town blogs that I used to read in the pre baby days and even if I do get around to reading them, I find myself not being able to relate to that life anymore. Money is tighter, the body has loose bits hanging out,  A night out on town means I ‘m home by 11 at the latest, my idea of cool hip music is now the latest Wiggles CD that I checked out at the library, the last movie I saw in the theater was Avatar. Yeah, I know, I need to get out more.

Anyway, all this whining was just the intro for a new attempt I’m making at documenting Bun and my life. I stole this idea from one of my fave pre baby blogs – No Good For Me. The women who blog there have awesome taste and are super super cool, so you should check them out if you ever have a chance. Anyway here is my quick peek for March




I’m hooked on Veronica Mars on Netflix.  If you ever liked Nancy Drew as a little girl then this is right up your alley. Only I think I like Veronica a little more ( Sorry Nancy, you seem too much like the popular girl not cool outsider, but you’ll always be my first girl crush).


Yo Gabba Gabba still reigns supreme in our household, especially the animal episode. Also this cute Hindi nursery rhyme that Bun watches with my mum. The lyrics are in Hindi and the animation is meh but the tune is really catchy and everyone can sing the chorus. I hum it in the shower all the time. Meow Meow Meow Meow


Me:  Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. She is a Nigerian writer and she captures complex family dynamics in a post colonial Nigeria beautifully. Also I love reading stories set in Africa because it reminds me of my time there and reminds me that I simply have to go back someday. Its such a vast continent and I want to see and explore more of it.


His favorite animal lately has been Elephants so we got Ollie from the library and we have been reading it several times a day.


Me: I have a major ipad addiction currently

Bun: Our Red Couch and the pillows and blankets that he drags o top of it


Me: I really really want to upgrade our printer. I have been doing a lot of research on which one I want and I think its probably going to be one of the Cannon Pixmas. I hate spending money on printers because they end up being so disposable anyway.

Bun: “Out”. I can’t seem to give this kid enough outside time. He asks for “out” all the time.


Me:Old Navy Jeans, Yellow Tee with Giant Sunflower from Target and Black Hoodie

Bun: Gap 1969 Jeans and a Navy Blue Carters Twofer with a football goal post on it and super comfy fleece lined slip ons that I found at target for $1.98. I kinda want his slip ons.
