2. Will's 32nd birthday is on Monday, and you may be interested to know that he requested a red velvet cake, and 2 tattoos for a birthday gift. My husband is nothing if not unconventional.
3. Baby-wearing mamas, I need your help. What am I doing wrong with the Mei Tei? I actually find it quite comfortable (considering my numerous back issues, anything that DOESN'T make my lower back feel like it will snap in half I latch on to at the speed of light), but Alessandra fusses, squirms, and will only tolerate being carried in there for 10 minutes, tops. It's frustrating, because she wants to be carried for a good portion of the day, but throws a fit when I put her in the back carry. Help a girl out.

6. It's such a relief to be receiving a steady paycheck every two weeks, and getting our financial act together again. Through some creative budgeting, sale shopping, and planning ahead, I'm slowly but surely building up our savings account, and putting money into our retirement fund again. Also, Pinterest is a godsend when it comes to finding budget ideas, cheap (yet healthy and tasty) meal plans, and tips for vacationing on the cheap.
7. If you haven't done so already, go purchase your copy of Something Other Than God! It's not often that you find a book with a 5-star review, and I promise, this one doesn't disappoint. (After reading Jennifer's Quick Takes, I discovered that #SOTG can also mean, "scorpions on the ground." Not cool. Not cool at all).
