“Let’s coverup the penis before we start riding on things.”

Just uttered by me to my 4 year old son.

Words to live by, little boy.

Ancestry

I’ve mentioned this before but I am a huge family tree/ancestry geek. Today I was able to trace my mom’s side of the family back to Essex, England, to my 11th Great Grandfather,Sir William Harris (knighted by King James I in 1603) helping to fund the trip to America and the founding of Jamestown. My 10th Great Grandfather would then be the first in his family come to America, North Carolina, specifically, 15 years later.
I have since traced back to my 15th Great Grandfather, William Harris of Prittlewell, Essex. Cool stuff. Oh yea, one was the Earl of Northumbria, too.

Little Boy is reading the Thomas book, “Blue Train, Green Train” to me before his nap. My little baby brainiac, I love him so.

This had me laughing out loud this morning. It’s the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon playing Family Fued with Jason Segel and The Roots hosted by Steve Harvey.

Happy 8th anniversary to my wonderful husband, Matt! 

Ice cream truck! I heard it from blocks away (I immediately was transported to my childhood in Texas). We’ve lived here for almost 5 years and we’ve never had an ice cream truck in the neighborhood.

A hard 30 minute workout is better than nothing, right?

Oh no!

The Saved By the Bell made for TV movie is starting right now (on Lifetime) and my DirectTV box has chosen now to completely reset.

They’re swimming and I’m wearing jeans and a hoodie.
