Calling all advice

Madeline and I are flying to Spokane this week.  I was just looking at my flight there and we have a layover and an additional stop somewhere, so we will be on the plane for  a few good (or not so good) hours.  Does anybody have any advice for how to keep a 13 month old busy on a plane?  She has been a good flyer, but usually after about an hour and a half she starts getting pretty restless.  I am having nightmares about being "that mom"  :)  Thanks in advance!  You all are so smart and creative!

Shoes make me happy!

Ok, so this time I really do have a pair of new shoes. Red, pointy-toe, stiletto heel - not my usual shoe and not sure if I can pull them off, but they were $6!  What do you think - pair them with a pencil skirt and tucked in button-down white shirt?  So sophisticated and so much fun (as long as I don't break my ankle).  

Oh...and Matt definitely approved :)

Time Out

Madeline was particularly difficult this afternoon. At one point, she paid a visit to the time out chair. I think she learned her lesson, don't you? :)

New Shoes

Unfortunately I did not get a fabulous pair of new shoes. But, I have found a new favorite song. It's called New Shoes by Paolo Nutini. Matt introduced it to me a few days ago and I just can't get enough. It makes me absolutely happy.

I think Madeline just might agree with me. This girl can't help but move when she hears a good song :)

Here it is for your listening pleasure (minus Madeline's moves):

Why we may never leave La Jolla

Last Saturday, after a long day of studying for Matt, he announced he needed to go catch a wave. So we hopped in the car in a race to beat the sunset. We won. Matt got out in the water and Madeline and I had fun watching him and enjoying the sand, air and sunset. It still boggles my mind that it's February and my parents have been in the negative numbers in WA. It's days like these that we can't imagine ever leaving.
