But what kind of gifts…?

As seen on a farmer’s market sign:




You Look So Young! Except not…

As I was getting out of my car at the post office today, two teenage boys drove by.  One leaned out the window and yelled to me, “Hi Mom!”

Clearly you skipped your optometry appointment, son.

I would almost think that this means my days of being mistaken for a fifteen-year-old are over–except last month, someone thought I was Shaun’s daughter.

There is just no escape from the awkward here.

What’s cooking?
I cooked from scratch THREE times this month.  I never thought I’d say this, but I actually miss cooking….

Other happenings:
-We bought a pick-up truck!  We’ve been limping along on one vehicle for almost five years, and getting a second was long overdue.  The new vehicle was supposed to be mine, but once we decided that we were getting a truck, it quickly, mysteriously, morphed into being Shaun’s vehicle.
-More visits from family and friends!
-We are excited to have a new niece!  She is adorable.
-On Memorial Day weekend, we traveled to Virginia for a family reunion.  It was a short trip, but fun.  Although I have to say, we both REALLY hate driving in PA.  Orange construction barrels must be their state flower.
