It's Rosh Hashanah, so I took the day off to celebrate with family. I also took the rare opportunity of a childcare/nonwork day and Kon-Mari'ed the living daylights out of our kitchen, my closet, the kids' closets, and (to some extent) their toys.
It was amazing. AND I even got a pedicure. Basically best day ever.
Um. You know how everyone is talking about "fall"? Well, we don't get that season. Or any others, really. Basically it's either incredibly beautiful (November - March) or too hot (the rest of the time). November feels far away right now.
I ran outside all summer, and am actually really used to it. Today's "feels like" was 100F, and honestly it felt entirely . . . normal. However, I am running a solid 1 minute/mi slower than I'd like to be, and blaming it on the temps. We'll see if my excuse holds up, come November. (I hope.)
kidsAnnabel started ballet. She is into it. I remember trying ballet for about 5 seconds before figuring out that gymnastics was far more fun, since we got to flip into a foam pit.
My 2016 planner came! It's now stowed away carefully in its box, as I don't want any curious 3 year olds (or 18-month-olds) to festoon it with . . . decorations. The cover I chose is leather and it's delicious.
Josh was on call, but I had a lovely weekend. Lots of A&C time. I did have a babysitter come for a few hours so I could run and do some work at a coffee shop, which was a nice palate-cleanser.
Speaking of palate-cleanser,
this picture? I love it. This kid just sparkles. Cameron had his 18-month checkup and that went well. 26 lb (50%), 33" (60%, but I'm not convinced it was accurate), and due for 0 vaccines, which was refreshing. I was honestly a bit worried that our pediatrician was going to be concerned about his speech, but she wasn't. So, yay.
I hosted my very first drop-off playdate! The girls played Anna&Elsa while Cameron watched in awe. It was very cute. Two 3-year-olds is actually easier than one, in many ways.
A&I made pumpkin muffins - made from coconut flour from Practical Paleo. While I am not adhering to the paleo lifestyle anymore, I still love many of the recipes.

Absolutely addicting, and thought-provoking, too.
