Hey Christian: Online Treasure Hunt

Your first clue: In honor of your work... I'd +1 that.

design star

Christian is the TV watcher in our relationship. But every once in a while we find a show that we both really like. We just rediscovered that we both like Design Star. I have trouble just sitting around watching TV. I always have to be doing something else at the same time.

(On a related note: we went to our church's temple in Oakland on Saturday, and I realized there as well that cannot sit still. Everyone in the room was sitting still the entire time, but I was fidgeting non stop. Can someone tell me what's wrong with me?)

Back to watching TV. While multitasking during Design Star, I came across these gems:

Reclaimed wood stairs. Love.

Love this floor!

I remember seeing this on a blog recently, but came across it again. I want a bunch of rock pillows for the boys' room!

Good luck ever getting me to paint hard wood floors (I have a hard time messing with wood), but this is great.
I'm actually supposed to be doing out finances right now. "Can't sit still. Must multi-task at all times (i.e. can't concentrate). Procrastinates." Hmmmm. I should probably figure that out.

You're my favorite.

It's true. Happy 8th, bff.

PS--This treasure hunt took me FOREVER to create and took you a couple of minutes to finish. Kind of like Thanksgiving dinner, no? Totally worth it.

Treasure hunt started here:

Hey blog stalker!

Hey Heather: If I had known I had blog stalkers, I wouldn't have gone a month without posting! ;) Sheesh. It's a good thing I know now.

Can you guys believe I just went over a month without posting anything on here? That is just unacceptable. Have I turned into one of those bloggers?

So for your viewing pleasure, I present you with my life in pictures. Aproveche.

I've started making smoothies in mason jars, thanks to this post by Cheri.

Found a salamander in the back yard. Graham kissed it.

Enjoyed the back yard. I'm surprised Graham isn't naked in this picture.

Yep. Naked.

Homemade yogurt seems to be best when it's blue and all over your face.
Four different parks in my first couple of weeks of part time. Had to make up for lost time.

Rode the train with the boys.

Meals served in cupcake tins. My husband is a genius.

Farewell party at my old job. This is the view of the back seat on the way home.

Early morning run to the park. Note the pajamas.

Rode Amtrak from Emeryville to Truckee. It was wonderful.

Even my phone couldn't make this view look bad.

Christian's dream job.

Definitely a pro. Just don't put him next to Tyler's kids.

Smallest putter ever.

Love this boy.

Took a Mandarin class. Didn't learn a thing.

Graham suddenly decided he liked his bike (thanks to Grandma Chris!) and immediately decided he's a mountain biker.

Went ollalaberry picking today. So fun.

Don't let the juice fool you. He doesn't believe in eating fruit. Just smashing it.

The lovely Carly helped me chase the boys around.

Could these three be any cuter? Kai Kai is a common name around our house.

The end.
