Space Blanket

at our baby shower back in April, everyone made quilt squares. This blanket was the finished result.  I love how it turned out, and J enjoyed hanging out on it some this morning while mom had breakfast.

No idea what they are, but I love these flowers. They have them on one of the corners we pass by to go to the library.

trying out the sling

I found this sling that was given to us by a friend. J likes to be held more often than not, so we thought we'd trying it out while waiting for the snugli from my sister to get here next week. he seems okay with it for the most part. It isn't my favorite, as I feel like he's going to fall out of it at any minute, especially since his head seems to keep escaping. but it has had some use. we might try a more extended use of it tomorrow when running a few errands (namely picking up my last paycheck).

Crazy wind and rain

So, this picture doesn't show it well, but Rexburg got some crazy wind and rain this afternoon.  It felt amazing, and let in a great breeze.

trying on clothes

I was going through some clothes, and trying to change out too small clothes for J. this happened to make a cute combo, so we left him in it.

Belated 4th of July

We had a really belated Fourth of July celebration tonight, complete with some fireworks with some good friends. I didn't get pictures of my favorite one (s) but I've decided I like most fountain-y fireworks.

reduced for quick sale

I love the fact that it's already pre-packaged hot dogs that are then packaged again for re-sale.....

New monument

I've been "watching" them build a new monument in front of the Rexburg Tabernacle for the last few weeks as I've gone to the library. I found it finished today when I visited.

Zucchini muffins

I've been in a nesting mood, and just want to do tons and tons of cooking and baking. It's been way too hot to do most of it, so I was excited when today cooled off quite a bit, and I was able to get some muffins done :)

resting bench

I've gotten more familiar with where the public benches are around town. this one happens to be on my way home from the bank and store. it was quite nice to sit on and rest for a bit :)
