NOBODY HERE BUT US CHICKENS

huck and i just took these photos right this very second for this post. you should know i am not wearing any pants. thank you happy goat designs for huck's new shirts!

i went to bed last night with a house full of loved ones, and then i woke up this morning to the echoing quiet of a sadly empty house. sparkling kitchen, peaceful living room, the bathroom all to myself . . . all the throw pillows sitting at attention, positively no slouching.

it made me frown. 

my aunt and uncle left very early this morning. and then brandon caught a later-early flight out to utah so he could be there for his nephew's priesthood ordination and eat all the cafe rio pork salad without me. 

huck and i are here holding down the fort. it takes a lot of work to hold down this fort, someone has to make sure these mini marshmallows get eaten. 

i promised brandon i wouldn't make any rash decisions about apartments while he was away. but craaaaap. i'm looking at a few lofts in soho tomorrow, so, you know, pray for him.

i think re-watching felicity the past few weeks has done bad things to my downtown sickness (it's an autoimmune disease). i've got the itch! it itches!

this photo was taken at the playground today after huck was informed that he had to share that spinning rod of death thing with some other little boy. 


don't i know it, double H.

  1. threading hurts like a mofo, but you have got to get on it: such definition in your eyebrows! such thoroughness! such cheapness! such efficiency! (doesn't even matter if you cry a little. not like i would know...)

  2. I'm so interested in getting my eyebrows tinted, I have the sad blonde eyebrow situation where in certain light it's like my eyebrows disappear, but I'm so scared of something going terribly wrong when I get it done and then having to live with that for however long it takes for it to fade away. Hopefully one day I'll be brave and try it. Also that Huck pout is adorable, sharing is rough!

  4. Sometimes thats the worse feeling... going to bed with a house full of everyone and waking up to everything being so quiet. I've done eyebrow threading once. I was sorta freaked out but kinda amazed at what was going on at the same time (if that even makes sense). Good luck with the apartment search! I'm sure you will find a great one!

  6. I swear every time I see a picture of this boy I prepare myself by saying "There is no way he could have gotten cuter since last time" but yet, he does each and every time. Man that boy is a heart breaker ! I love hearing about your life together and constantly look forward to your posts. It brings me great joy for some strange unknown reason, knowing that such a nice loving family is still possible these days. Kudos

  8. I liked threading compared to waxing...but I have been told I am not so much on the sane side when it comes to my pain threshold so maybe my review is biased. I was just fascinated during the whole process!! Definitely worth trying.

  9. I switched to threading because *supposedly* it doesn't cause fine lines, since it doesn't pull at your skin like waxing does. I'm all about postponing some fine lines... (Love Huck's grouchy face, btw)

  10. I love threading!!! it's way better than waxing :) gives your eyebrows a better shape! Do try it!

  11. DO IT GIRL. Move downtown.. The things you will gain will far outweigh the space you will lose! (Also, lofts in Soho, for reals??? JEALOUS)..

  15. Do not get anything waxed on the cheap in this city. Not your eyebrows, your "oh hello there", not your lip - nothing. They double-dip and use awful wax.

  16. Guuuurl! Get your eyebrows threaded! It's amazing! It's clean and lasts forever. It is quick and only hurts a little bit. I'll never go back to waxing.

  17. I know just what you mean about big families in your house filling up your veins - I feel the very same way! Good luck for your apartment search :)

  28. I watched Felicity at the beginning of the summer. oh ben, sigh.

  29. I love threading. It is less painful, more precise, and looks more natural than waxing. Also, I have found that applying lotion around my eyebrows right before makes it even less painful.

  30. haha - that last photo. true that huck! (and yes to the eyebrow threading. it's amazing).
