Everything I’m thinking about right now …
I feel like this link-up is slowly (quickly?) dying and most of the problem is me. It’s 4:35am, I just changed Kamden’s diaper and gave him a quick drink, and now I’m on the couch watching the monitor to make sure he goes back to sleep and typing this post. I haven’t blogged since last week’s link-up and, even then, I felt it was rushed and last-minute. Does anybody care about these anymore?
Mom has been in town since Saturday and we’ve had a wonderful visit. Kamden and I are dropping her off at the airport later today, we already miss her! The weather’s been great so we could be outside and we’ve certainly taken advantage. We went to Grapevine last Monday and walked through the Gaylord Texas Hotel and had lunch along the river walk. Kamden loved watching the fish (and people), he also discovered a large toy train display and enjoyed impromptu dance parties when he’d hear music playing throughout the facility. The kid loves to dance and I’m anxious to see where this infatuation with music leads. After lunch, we headed to the aquarium inside Grapevine Mills Mall. I’ll share those pictures in a later post, hopefully! Yesterday (Tuesday), we headed downtown to Sundance Square. The new pavilion and dancing fountains in the square on Main Street is fantastic and the perfect spot for Kamden to walk around and explore, especially when the weather is so perfect. Again, he could hear music being piped through speakers in the landscaping and overhead and would shake and boogie in his adorable way in the middle of downtown Fort Worth. That boy steals my heart all day every day! We ate lunch at Piranha Sushi and Kamden ate shrimp fried rice for the first time. He ate until I thought his little belly might explode.
Speaking of music, I’m in love with Ellie Goulding and her smash hit, “Love Me Like You Do.” While I absolutely hated the Fifty Shades of Gray movie, the soundtrack is surprisingly good. In fact, it’s really good. But, how can you go wrong with a mix of Frank Sinatra and Beyoncé with new, fresh, and young talent like Ellie Goulding. My car’s radio is tuned to country 99% of the time and I keep up with the latest dance and pop music thanks to my amazing fitness trainer and cycling coach and music fanatic, Crissy. Lately, I’ve heard “Love Me Like You Do” playing on several different genre stations. The song is definitely a smash hit on radio, ITunes, and has been viewed on YouTube more than 220 million times. Do they even make CDs anymore? If so, I’d like this soundtrack for my car. Kamden and I love listening to music while we’re out and about and I will not deny replicating my riding motion on the bike when a familiar song plays on the radio. Yes, I’m the girl dancing and jamming in her car that everyone stares at. #dontcare
At church tonight, I’m looking forward to participating in a traditional (and Kosher) Seder Passover meal. I was invited to a friend’s house to celebrate the Jewish Passover with her family, but it was years ago and I’ve forgotten many aspects of the meal, which is a worship service too. To my knowledge, this will be the first time most people at First United Methodist Church in Joshua, Texas experience a Seder Service.
Yesterday, March 31, Husband and I celebrated eight years of matrimony. Besides lunch at Chick-Fil-A on Friday and dinner at Spring Creek BBQ Sunday evening, he gave me the best gift of all yesterday morning: Husband put the toilet seat down. Y’all, I’m not kidding. He only does it on our anniversary and it gets my attention – EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. The guy’s a mess but I love him so much!
