There are a few kids in my life that I love almost as much as I love my own children. And most of those kids are my nieces and nephews. Recently, my brother's beautiful daugher, Carina, turned one.

My family is . . . special. And I'm not talking special like diamonds in the rough. Sure, they are wonderful. But I'm talking about special as in . . . unique. Particularly when it comes to dietary needs. All of them. Sigh. They really love me for my blog.

My brother and I (along with Nathan and my brother-in-law) are in a weight loss competition. The goal is to be the first one to lose 8% of your starting weight. My brother, John, looks pretty innocent and nice, doesn't he? All lovey dovey with my newborn baby Quinn.

Nathan. Stop reading this. It's not Valentine's Day yet.
Fortune cookies have this really romantic quality to me. Which may seem odd if you don't know me, because . . . they're fortune cookies.

For example, my idea of romance right now is Nathan making the bed in the morning so that every time I walk by our room I don't have to think, "Ugh. There's a mess in there." Or doing the dishes for me . . . that is super romantic.

I kind of love these. They are so simple, but so sweet. I first saw them as a wedding favor idea. What a great idea, right?? I would love to get something like this at a wedding. (As a side note, a good friend of mine from college is getting married this summer, and I am now obsessing over wedding details.)

Need more red paint? We do. We always do. And by "we," I mean Gavin. He is perpetually worried that we are running out of red paint, his favorite color. In fact, if I paint with him, each dip I make into the red paint elicits a small gasp from him, followed by, "Can you please not use all the red paint??"
