What my white sofa has taught me.

Before the white sofa, I thought my house (in general) was pretty clean. I could remove the slipcovers on my old sofa and wash them, which I did every three or four months. Well, after living on the new white sofa for a month, I am pretty sure we're all lucky to still be alive. The fact that 2 kids and 2 dogs go up on the sofa makes me rethink sitting on it. I've washed at least 1 cover each week since getting it. I'm sure some of you thought I was nuts for getting a white sofa (considering said kids and dogs). I think it's insane to not have a white sofa. At least now I know when it's dirty rather than just live on filth I didn't know was there.
I feel better now.....

2 Pea's Blog Challenge

Today's Challenge~ Are you a person who will go out of your norm to try something new at least once. Or stay with that your comfortable with?
I've tried many new things by myself. For instance I went to a yoga class by myself at a 'compound' type house once. Kids and dogs running all over the place. I was the only one that didn't really belong, if you know what I mean...... I had started to regret not telling Greg more specifically exactly where I was going, just in case I got converted while I was there =). It turned out to be just fine, but it was a new experience for me. First and last time I ever did yoga....
I've also gone to several crops at scrapbook stores and attended conventions by myself. I'm not afraid to do things alone. I drove to San Francisco for work many times when we first moved to Sacramento. That was a big deal for me at the time, as the city is somewhat overwhelming.
I'm sure it will be quite awhile before I'm really in a position to do much alone, but I'll give something a try at least once.

We've been spookified

We have been busily spookifying our house for Halloween. The more the better according to the kids. Teagan loves to say "oh spooooky" and she does her fingers all crawly. I got the idea to do the super cool huge spider web from the Pottery Barn kids catalog. I'm not sure if it's something they even sell, but I don't have an extra $60 for a spider web even if they do. I made if myself with black thread and some nails. We found the huge arachnid at Target, soooo cool! Unfortunately I couldn't get a picture of the kids by the spider, Teagan won't go by it!

Notice Teagan's cute UGGS! Every girl should have a pair of pink UGGS!

And here are some Maren photos for those of you needing a baby fix!

Sleeping in the car is actually a rare thing, it's the only time she really cries.

I'm telling you, this baby is seriously the sweetest thing in the world. I am so enjoying having a baby around the house again! I can't believe she is almost 2 months old already. She is growing up too fast already.
