So here is my first entry in a long time. BJ, Silas, and I spent a long, lovely vacation in New England with some extremely wonderful friends, and I can't tell you how refreshing and happy that trip was for us. I will certainly post more pictures from our adventures in times to come, but for now, we will limit it to the beach pictures from Bar Harbor, Maine, where we visited Andi. As you can see from the pictures, Silas is having quite the time! He takes after his mommy a bit, as every time I see the wonderful, wonderful ocean I make a point to go down to it and bellow my delight out to the crashing waves. Silas, unaware of his mommy's uncontrollable urge, incidentally did the exact same thing. Of course, I immediately encouraged it by joining in, which kept the chorus going for a few minutes. It was wonderful.
Another random tidbit: For those of you who missed my husband's incriminating Tweet/FB status the other night about my pregnancy cravings, I will graciously share it with you now:
Well, let's be honest. The man wasn't fibbing. In the words of the great Cheri Oteri, "The story is as told." The funny part is that BJ got a tweet from a lady at General Mills the following day, asking him for his address because she noticed his tweet and had something to send him. We got quite the kick out of this, particularly because she was calling from Minneapolis, where the General Mills Headquarters is situated. The building itself is quite large and is about three blocks from our second apartment. And oh, did it ever smell lovely. Every day we would make statements to each other on our nightly walks, such as "Must be Cinnamon Toast Crunch Day today," and "Mm-mm-MM, smell those Cheerios!" It was divine. So, in the mail today comes our package from Minneapolis, and it includes two of these shirts! Luckily they are size Large so I still fit in them, even with a growing Baby Oot.
