{mama caliente}

{click on the image to see entire photograph. i ♥ target. no pop art today but this is my self portrait this week. :)}
what is UP with blogger these last couple of days? it's not just me, right? oy. anywho. we got the house! i sound like we bought it but even as renters i'm still relieved and excited to at least have a nice place in this city on the sun. supposedly it's been a cooler week... 100 degrees until 11 pm doesn't sound very cool to me. how 'bout you? nope. didn't think so. thank you, jesus (or whoever invented air conditioning)! it's definitely a godsend here!

we've been staying at our new place this week (on an air mattress in the living room) while we work. we have all of next week to finish packing + move (well, alex has to work a bit of it) so hopefully everything will run smoothly. someone is coming to help me on tuesday so it'll be great to have an extra set of hands. we still have to transfer most of the utilities (they're on under the homeowner now), turn everything off at the old place + have it cleaned. i've decided not to go on the girl's stateline trip this weekend (*sniff*) so i can work on everything. ah well, next year! :)

"c" is a little fish in her new pool. the pool at their house is absolutely beautiful and perfect for the wee swimmer and myself. i'm *hoping* that we can get out there 2-3 times a week. that's my kind of exercise!

well, that's the update for now. i'll be posting more photos this week + also announcing a new, fun swap! keep your little eyeballs peeled. ha! what an expression...

ps- finished reading the time traveler's wife (2nd time) and it was just so amazing. i get more from the book every time i read it + honestly look forward to reading it again sometime. i've never been so utterly in love with a book before. after things settle a bit i will start reading a tree grows in brooklyn.

super cute shoes. where'd you get them? or did you make them?

i liked a tree grows in brooklyn except for the part about the nasty librarian. that was disturbing. but otherwise, a great read.

yeah, blogger has been so horrible the last day or so. it makes me feel un-bloggy.

Interesting...I'm reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn after finishing The Time Travelers Wife last week.

We must be on the same book brainwave!

Have fun moving! I've been totally spacey with your agenda LOL!

Love the shoes! I tried them on so many times and just kept talking myslef out of them!

I might have to go pick up The t.t.w. I have never read it, and I'm still in love with my favorite book when I was 12! So we'll see ;)

Love the shoes, love the girl! I am happy if you are happy. God sends us trials as tests of faith.
Keep up the faith sweetie.
