flip flopping life.

our lives have been flip-flopped.
matt's working nights... so we never get to hang out.
so, to take up time at night, i've been...

-making christmas presents (i know, it's ridiculous).
-creating decorations for micah's first birthday party... check out one of the many:

one of my friends had made an alphabet book for her daughter, so i took the idea to make one for micah's first birthday!

i've been playing with this little guy. and that chunky dog.

 baby shower! for my college roommate! joy.

dinner out with friends. learning the world of ann arbor.

baking. the best blueberry muffins ever. check out the recipe here.

grandparent time.

spending a few random moments together. date night.

friends from out of town!

 fun dish--sausage, peppers, rotel, egg noodles, monterrey jack cheese. mmmmm.

only a few more days and life will go back to more normal!

she's just miley.

she can't stop.
it's a party in the usa.
and i decided that she's to blame for all that's wrong in society.
here's the start of my list of things i'm choosing to blame on her. in no particular order.

1. that i run out of shampoo before conditioner.
2. dog hair on the floor.
3. dog hair on furniture.
4. dust. more than dust, dusting.
5. labor. enough said.
6. contractions. the ones with apostrophes and the ones from babies.
7. watermelon seeds.
8. raspberry seeds.
9. tomatoes in general.
10. alfredo sauce. (admit it. it just looks like lard.)
11. bugs where they don't belong.
12. weeds.
13. the price of cable.
14. trash dumps.
15. the fact that everyone doesn't recycle. earth day everyday. come on.
16. when you are waiting for the next episode of a tv show to come online.
17. train tracks with trains on them when you're in a hurry.
18. lack of backyard fences.
19. when you take a drink of coffee and realize it has grounds in it. yuck.
20. cakes that fall.
21. visits to the gyn.
22. bruises. any and all.
23. stubbing your toe.
28. when you don't know which battery died, so you have to switch both.
29. toilet paper rolls that are loaded upside down.
30. cups of coffee that slosh out of the cup.
31. the existence of bottled water. seriously. just use the faucet. 
32. when going sledding, the process of walking back up the hill.
33. chipping nail polish.
34. customer service for any and all companies over the phone.
35. sore throats.

there are obviously many more things.
and obviously many that actually matter... like disease and war and things.
and it goes without saying that it's definitely all miley's fault.
