I'm not in kansas anymore

Friday afternoon my sister sent me the following email:

I am so excited to see you!! Things to get excited for that are ready and waiting for you at our house: bloody marys, mimosas, dos equis, lime-a-ritas, wine, carrots, cheetos, sausages/buns, corn-on-the-cob, pasta salad, cookies, fruit, a bag of summer clothes for you, a gift for Dan, and a cute little baby who can now clap. CLAP!

Guys, my sister knows me. She really knows me.
Give me a baby, a drink and a snack and you will be my best friend for life.
Ok, so give me a drink and a snack and you will be my best friend.
The baby is a bonus.

Speaking of best friends ... notice anything different about my blog? Look at those new, shiny buttons over there on the right. I have 16 new Miss Julys over there for you all to check out. 16! And trust me, you want to check them out. They are amazing. Not to mention, some of them have shops. Like they sell cute, amazing things online. Where do they come up with this stuff? And where was I when someone was apparently giving away this talent for free?
Seriously. I have absolutely no clue how to sew on a button.
No clue.

So anyways ... I’m not in Kansas anymore. I’m in Chicago.
With my sister.
And Jack.

And I've been told that it is absolutely necessary that I end this post now.
Aunt Tiff is off to have a little clapping party with a 10 month old {and drink a lot of coffee}.
And I couldn't be any more excited about it.

  16. He's adorable! How old is Jack? I know a sassy 9 month old named Olivia that could be his girlfriend. She has two teeth, likes jewelry and can stand and walk while semi-assisted. Tell Jack to call me if he's interested. I will see if I can set something up.

  23. uuuhh Mimosa's sound good right about now, even if it's only 8:00am and I'm stuck at home with two very restless kiddos while my car is in the shop. That would probably help me stay in my sanity. lol I hope you will have a fabulous time in Chicago! yeah for time with babies, family and mimosas!

  31. Chicago sounds like a mighty fine place to be. I could have come along to babysit. Oh, and maybe shopping at the Sephora store and H&M. But that's after the poop diapers.
