Baby barking — it’s the latest craze sweeping the nation, you know. Connor Claire has figured out how to bark out orders and shout to announce her displeasure throughout the day. “Eh!” That’s what she does now. When she wants to be picked up or just wants to stare at me and I walk out of her view for a few seconds, that’s what I hear. “Eh!” Over and over. “Eh! Eh!” Like she’s a baby crow, haha.

Good morning, friend! How are you? What did you do last night? Since I’m stuck in baby jail, I need you to help me out. Did you go out to dinner this week? Have you seen any movies? Have you been to the beach? Or the mall? Or Target? Old Navy? Downtown? In other words, have you done anything at all outside of your house? Because, you know, if you have…chances are you’ve been leaving the house a lot more often than I have.

Heck, I don’t think I’ve opened the front door since Thursday. (The struggle is real!)

I gotta get out of the house. Maybe a stroll around the mall in Corte Madera… I’m still mastering the art of loading and unloading the stroller from the car, though. My little Mazda is…little. So NOW I see what the big deal is about minivans. Yup, now I get it.

Good luck in the giveaway, and have a great weekend. Talk to you soon.

“Who? Who?” the owl asked outside my window today. “Mrrrrrowwwwww!” answered the interested tabby on the windowsill.

Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy Caturday!

So…Tabs has been all about his new employee’s Fisher-Price Rainforest Melodies and Lights Deluxe Gym lately, even though I keep shooing him away from it because I don’t want him tearing it apart.

He’ll reluctantly walk away only to sneak back a few minutes later. It could be the only thing in the middle of the floor, and of all the places to plop down, he’ll plop down right there.

Cats

Cats…

What are you up to this weekend? Do you have any plans? I’m getting a haircut this afternoon, and I’m very excited about it! Whatever you’re doing, I hope you’re doing something fun.

Rise and shine, pal o’ mine! Good morning! Happy Caturday. I hope you slept well.

I did. The baby slept for — get this — seven hours straight! I think that’s the longest stretch yet. She’s becoming a good sleeper (*knocks on wood*). I hope it lasts.

Do you have any plans for Mother’s Day? Brunch? I think we’ll stay home, probably. Maybe El Hub will make breakfast. πŸ™‚ We’re still not really going out together very often because, you know, it’s still a little tough. Connor’s baby patience wears thin after about an hour, and it’s nice to be close to home when the fussiness starts…

How’s everything with you? What have you been up to this spring? How’s work? How’s the family? It’s been wonderful having the interns help with their great posts here on the blog (thank you, ladies!), but I don’t get to check in as often as I’d like. I read every single post and every one of your comments, but I don’t spend 10 hours online like I normally would/used to.

I’ve been slowly easing my way back into blogging… Or, rather, Chanel started pulling me back into blogging, because it’s just too damned gorgeous to deny, but I’m still officially on my maternity leave. Maybe another month or so.

Let me know how you’ve been doing and what’s new with you. Happy Mother’s Day tomorrow. Good luck in the giveaway.

This is going to sound completely random, but do you ever go to Panera Bread? I had one of their salads the other day (the Fuji Apple Chicken Salad), and I’ll be danged if it wasn’t one of the highlights of my week!

Good salads…

LOL! Rise and shine, morning glory! Happy Caturday! πŸ™‚ How’s everything over there? What was the highlight of your week?

I’m still chugging along. Connor Claire is getting bigger and smiling more every day, and Tabs has been soaking up the spring weather and enjoying the upgrades El Hub made to the deck garden.

About that, we didn’t go as far with the garden this year as we did last year, but we did plant six or seven tomato plants, a bit of basil, some zucchini squash, a few patches of cat grass and a hot pepper plant, so there’s some new greenery for him to explore (and to attract birds for Tabby TV).

I can’t believe it’s already May…but I say that every month, “I can’t believe it’s ______.” It’s true, though. I can’t believe it’s already May! Time seems to go by faster every day.

Are you doing anything fun this weekend? Before you get going, don’t forget to enter this weekend’s Sephora giveaway. Good luck!

I actually have to wash my makeup brushes today because I haven’t washed them since before I left for the hospital seven weeks ago.

[WOW!]

Yeah! But I haven’t been wearing a lot of makeup, and it’s weird — when you don’t wear a lot, you kind of get used to it. I mean, the other day I did full-on makeup, like foundation, concealer, brows, eyes, cheeks, lips — the whole kit and caboodle — and when I looked in the mirror, I was just like, “Who is this girl?”

Maybe I’m just used to seeing myself looking really tired…

Today I wanted to try another look with the Chanel Summer 2016 collection I mentioned yesterday. I’ve used all of the products so far, but there’s a green eyeshadow in the eyeshadow quad I really want to play with.

Also, in baby-related stuff, because a baby runs my life these days, I need to figure out how to collapse her stroller so I can get it in and out of my Mazda. And unlike my dad and my husband, I will actually read the instruction booklet instead of standing there for two hours grumbling, “I can’t figure this thing out!”

I do also plan to do some weekend-y stuff, like maybe rent a movie and leave the house at some point… Whatever you’re doing, I hope it’s fun. Good luck in the giveaway. πŸ™‚
