playing catch up.

hello friends! 

today is an extra day - and i have been so busy that i neglected to realize that today was leap day, let alone that this year is leap year. which makes me kind of sad, because i would have taken full advantage of having 'extra time'. 

i am trying to play catch up here on this blog. & i probably never will catch up - and i am becoming okay with that. 

lately we have been making maggie pearl smoothies every single morning. she loves them. so far her favorite is avocado, kiwi, blueberries, banana, almond milk and spinach. oh, and she also really likes to munch on red bell peppers. 

i took the pearl girl to the library 2 weeks ago. she threw a giant fit, wanted to play on the computers, and screamed while we were there. {which was awesome.} but, we checked out this book, ten little ladybugs - and she is obsessed. like annoyingly obsessed. i read the book over and over and over again. daily, hourly - over and over. i love that she loves to read, but i just wish that she would pick another book - and not brown bear, brown bear, what do you see? {because thats the other book we read over and over} oh, and she is pretty much a doll, even though she looks like a preschooler in this photo. {who let my baby grow up so quickly???}

i made these really cute washi tape strip magnets during naptime last week. they were really, really super easy. and cost about $1 to make. plus they look really cute on our fridge. 

i also found my tiny, 2 cup french press while cleaning out my kitchen. i adore it, and it reminded me of all those fun afternoons i spent being a barista and working on my coffee knowledge. so, i have been enjoying some delicious french press coffee nearly every afternoon.

i have some wonderful things coming up on this little blog. march is looking like a good month. we will be celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary, i have some fun giveaways planned, and i am going to try to get back on this blogging horse and write as much {or not as much} as my little heart desires.
