In the past few weeks we have...

Spent an awesome weekend with great friends:

Received visits from my grandma

And from my family-- the world travelers.  They just got back from a 
trip to England and Italy. It was difficult not to feel a little sorry 
for myself for not getting to go with them.

Read a really good book (The Book Thief). 

Enjoyed the flowers at City Market.

Bought a couch.  It was a very impulsive buy.  I love vintage furniture 
and have been (very) s- l-o-w-l-y collecting pieces.  
I'm very happy with it, and it's also super comfortable.  But it's blue, 
and my walls are blue.  A little much.  Ross says I'm not allowed to 
paint yet, since we've only lived here for a year.

And.... TA-DA!

Yep!  That's right! James has landed a spot on Ethan's rear-end. 
I would say he's 95% potty-trained.  It was not quite as big of a deal 
as I thought it would be.  I got some good advice from 
my sister-in-law and just put him in underwear 
and braced myself.  It took a few days, but now we are there.
