this is not a good title.  a better one might be - what i ate this weekend {everything}.  or i got to model clothes for sheridan french's spring collection {yipee!}.  or my allergies are killing me and i can't believe i am even blogging.  if i take too long to figure this out, i will never publish this and it will be doomed to sit in my drafts folder forever.  where blog posts go to die.


this is ethan's lincoln log masterpiece from a few weeks ago.  it is half on the rug, half off the rug - but the track is the same height all the way around thanks to special railroad "ties" that he used.

clearly i am very impressed.  i think it might be one of those photos where my mother and myself are the only ones that will enjoy it.  but oh well.  this is my blog and i can post these types of things.

i will certainly enjoy reading about his lincoln log masterpieces when he is a mouthy teenager.  these days just might be my happy place then.

in other news, my body is having some sort of histamine reaction to god knows what.  you can see it in my eyes.  they are very pink.  not the oozy pink-eye pink, but more along the lines of the itchy, squinty, i-just-want-to-rub-them, lines.  not mascara friendly.

basically, not so pretty.

and it started the morning of this.  which, i have to say, was very fun.  and i also have to say that if you have been on the fence about adding some sheridan french to your wardrobe, you should dive in.  she's even been putting stuff on sale lately. 

it really looks good on everyone.  and its very classic.  and versatile.  and the fabrics are heavenly.

i can't help but think how perfect everything would be for la jolla.  sigh.

(btw, the high temps for this week there are well below our low temps.  yikes.)

anyway, my eyes were a scary shade of neon pink on saturday morning.  the visine toned them down a bit.  thank god.  and hopefully along with the editing out the sweat beads from the intense morning heat they can whiten up my eyes!  sheesh!  but it was fun.  my dress was my favorite one there.  and the other girls were very nice.  no pics -- they were forbidden  :)  and it was peculiar to leave the house all dressed alone.  an honest sign i need to get out more.

in case you were curious, sheridan is every bit of laid back and kind and sincere as you could imagine.  i couldn't help but instantly like her.  her kids were there, running around, being cute.  it was such a very friendly atmosphere.  i wish enormous amounts of success for her clothing line.

and afterwards, i treated myself to a chocolate chip muffin.  the sugar!  the chocolate chips!  no little hands begging for a bite!!!   very much a treat.

savannah was pretending she was cinderella.  ethan was pretending to be prince charmer.  sigh.  so incredibly cute.

anyway, the rest of the weekend i felt like i was in some sort of allergy laden fog.  there was some sewing.  a hamburger.  a diet coke!  some brunch at glorias.  olympics.  yes.  that is about it.


see the photo above?  savannah was a sticky pizza and cinnamon roll mess.  ethan was pretty sticky too.  and i had just enjoyed 4 pieces of pizza.  today i took the kids to mama's for pizza.  because 1.)  i needed to get out of the house,  and 2.)  i needed pizza before i begin strict paleo on wednesday.

yes.  you read that correctly.  another month of paleo.  and this time i am excited?  strange.

except i will keep in dairy--  milk in my coffee.  cheese on my salad.  plain yogurt.  dairy doesn't seem so scandalous when you take away the sugar...

but this time i will keep a record of my meals.  journal my recipes.  anyone want to join me??  when i started this in june, i really missed certain foods.  craved them.  and then in july, when i would eat the "treats," do you know?  they were not as delightful as i had hoped.  so here we go again.

it will be good.

more soon.  i'm off to "housekeep"

xoxo, s
