Catch up

My kiddos in a "mud" pit (more like "rocky water" pit, but still so fun)

Summer is pretty much over (in terms of scheduling, that is, NOT in terms of weather unfortunately.) I haven't been blogging because... well, is it possible to be really busy and really lazy at the same time? If so, that's my excuse. So here's a couple very pivitol things that have happened to me lately just so you can catch up on my life:

1) I went to Colorado this summer to one of my all-time favorite places EVER. Rocky Mountain National Park rocks my socks off (as my JH kiddos would say.) There were 8 of us in a 2- bedroom cabin with one bathroom. It was too fun to suffciently describe in this post.

2) I started learning about china this last week (the plate kind, not the country.) I don't know much about either kind of china come to find out. Question: You married peeps, did you register for China? Why or why not? Would you do something different if you had the chance? I feel kinda like an old woman talking about stuff like this.
3) A couple weeks ago I was edging my lawn and my weed eater caught on fire. I wish that I had this on video so I could add the visual to this post. Needless to say, it didn't work so well after that, and the scene of me standing in my driveway with flames and smoke coming out of it was priceless.

You're pretty much up to speed on my life now. It's hard to believe I could fit so many significant events in one post, I know. More to come!! :)

Glad to see some news!
FYI, I did register for china. I grew up with my mother serving every Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner on her china, which sat in a china cabinet in the dining room. This was my picture of married life. I LOVE my china, by the way. I don't use it much yet, but I have my parents old china cabinet and it sure looks great in there! My suggestion is to register for it if you think you will use it EVER in your life (since you only get to register now.) Also, look around until you find that pattern that just jumps out at you. If nothing does, then maybe you don't really want china.

We DID register for China initially, but dropped it from our registry eventually. I didn't think we'd use it. But we have inherited a set from my grandmother since, so I DO have some. Probably will be glad about that later, but crystal and china seems too froofy for me at this point.

Did I register for china? Yes. How many times has it seen the light of day in the last six years? About 3. But, it is beautiful and I am sure that someday I will use it more often! When else will you have the chance to get it though? So, go for it. But, I will say, I went a little higher-end with my everyday pottery-type dishes, and a little less fancy with my china, which I think was not a bad idea since I use the pottery stuff all the time, I am glad it is something I really love.
