the boob tube.

per my most recent post, you might have figured out that i may or may not watch a large amount of television each day...especially now that is is 104 degrees outside. dont get my wrong...a lot of each day consists of, as i stated before, nursing, laundry (we're cloth diapering), taking a gazillion pictures of my baby, and making silly faces at her to make her smile. but in between, i try to catch a few of my favorite shows.

ok, i know this season is over, but i just cannot stop watching reruns of that final episode! i mean where else can you see silicone filled middle aged women tossing sangria in each faces all while navigating through a land mine infested pool party of F bombs? i thought that only happened in New Jersey.
My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding- this show is amazing! who knew traveling irish folk we so provacitive? i'm pretty sure this is who "toddlers and tiaras" grow up to be.
Ice loves Coco- i just think this show is cute. we love our law and order SVU around here, so its fun to see "Fin" in real life, and i just think that coco is sweet.

In other news...this is what the other 23.5 hours in my day consist of...

a few faves as of late.

baby girl is 7 weeks old now, which means for the last 7 weeks most of my days consist of nursing, laundry, and lots of darling smiles from my beautiful baby. and most of my socializing is of the bovine and equine persuasion since they happen to be the closest living creatures around besides the newborn asleep on my lap. believe it or loving every minute and wouldnt want to be doing anything else. however, despite the stimulating conversation i get from livestock and a small infant, i have had plenty of internet time to peruse the limitless abyss that is,
here are a few of my recent purchases...

Clarisonic- i actually bought this brand new on ebay for $120, which is about $60 cheaper than they retail for usually. i really love it too.
i love this spray tan...well actually its more of a foam, but the color is actually look golden tan and not like an oompa loompa.
i just started using this stuff on my face. from a girl who has to make sure every thing i put on my face is "oil-free" it was a little disconcerting rubbing something on my very sensitive skin that actually had the word "oil" in it. but at $10 a pop this stuff promises to correct uneven skin tone, so i thought, what the heck, i'll give it a try. plus, if i do break out, i'm pretty sure the horses and cows and sweet baby Daphne won't notice.

...but this is my absolute most favorite thing.

a few photos.

little Daphne's newborn pictures. you can see more of my photography at

the look on the husband's face might have been a result of the fact that he had just lugged a large amount of very heavy boxes down two flights of stairs because i was cleaning out my classroom. he's a good man.
as my sister put it..."muahahaha...i will eat you!"

sorry for the picture overload you just encountered, but i might be just a little in love with my new baby girl.
