Time for a little catch up

First, and update on "Project Kitchen"...
Under cabinet lights... check.

And, I love them. Our kitchen was so dark before. These lights make all the difference in the world. Here's a picture of the lights after installation. There are also lights on top of the cabinets.

We installed the all important child locks last night. Egan discovered them first thing this morning. We're just about done installing all the cabinet pulls. Three more drawers to go.
Last weekend, Egan and I went with my parents and brother out west to my cousin's wedding. Blake had to stay home because he had to work. This trip proved that Egan is not ready for long car trips.
He did a lot of screaming and some of this...

Yes, staring at this... (excuse the iPhone pictures)

That would be my dad's iPad in what normally holds a mirror so we can see what he is up to from the front seat. He thought the iPad was pretty awesome.
Here's a fun stop... anyone know where this is?

Or ever seen one of these?

Ah, sweet nectar. That is a Dublin Dr Pepper. What's that, you ask? Find more here or try the wikipedia page, now that's big time!
Back to the real point of our trip... my cousin's wedding! I was so bummed that I didn't get more pictures. I guess that is what happens when you have a one year old along for the ride. Here are the pictures I got of the groom.


Sigh. Sorry, family, I failed on that one!
Here's why.
Egan decided not to take a nap for TWO days. He turns into quite the bear after no naps for so long. I chased him around the "cry room" during the wedding trying to keep him quiet, and finally got him to sit in his stroller to go to the reception. Notice he's shed one shoe and his "fancy" shirt (hanging off the top of the stroller).

Also notice what he has in his hands. That'd be my iphone playing some Yo Gabba Gabba, his favorite show.
Shortly after that, I gave him some gronola bar (see it in his hand?) and this happened...

The poor guy fell asleep while sitting up and eating.

Sweet boy. As tired as he was, he still only slept for 20 minutes or so.

So, that's the update on the kitchen plus our sleepless wedding weekend all rolled into one.
In summary, lights = good, iPad on long trips = good, Dublin Dr Pepper = good, weddings = good, but napless one year old at a wedding = not the most fun thing in the world. That's ok. I'm still glad we went.


  1. He looks so big holding the iphone so carefully. I think my iphone will definitely come in handy one of these days. So glad technology has come so far.

  2. We just took our 2 year old to two weddings in one weekend - not recommended!!! You really don't get to see the wedding and we had to skip out early from the receptions. I think next time I'll pass and leave him home :)

  3. Here from Jenna's Journey... I hope you have a most fabulous week this week!!! Jami

  4. The Ipad in the mirror trick is PRICELESS! Seriously, that is genius.

  5. Hey! Thanks for stopping by! LOVE the undercabinet lights! My Lilly is not a good traveler either--you have my sympathy. We are about to go to the beach and I am nervous about the trip. Sometimes Reid and Lilly conspire to keep each other awake and crying. Haha. Knock on wood, the last two trips we made to see Matt's family went pretty good--and they were both 3 hour trips. Fingers crossed! Looks like a great trip (minus the fuss session) and your little man is ADORABLE!

  6. Aww poor little guy! I'm over from Jenna's blog hop.

    I went to school in Waco, and we love, love, love real Dr. Pepper. I'm a Diet Coke addict, but even I'll give that up for real Dr. Pepper.


  7. I'm here from Jenna's Journey. The iPad instead of a mirror is so creative, and a great idea! My son is 20 months old, and so far he's been a really good car rider. I need to trade my BlackBerry in for an iPhone, I think it will come in handy in the future!
