Life Lately

I'm off of work today to get stuff ready for our big annual Oktoberfest tomorrow!  I am SO excited.  I still wanted to get a blog post up today, so here's just a little "life lately" post to tide you over on all your Bethie and family needs until I am able to spend more time here, ha.

Oliver has started his coffee habit.  Ok, I'm kidding.  But he found my (empty) coffee mug last weekend and thought it was pretty awesome.

I haven't talked about the kitties in quite some time here but I assure you they are alive and well. They were cuddling together last weekend and I always love catching them together.  Oliver has taken to trying to crawl after them now, especially Taylor.  Poor cats!

I was supposed to sing at a wedding last weekend but sadly due to miscommunication that didn't work out.  I had stopped at Target on the way to the wedding to pick up a couple of things for Ollie and decided, hey, since I'm making a little extra cash today I'm going to treat myself.  So I bought this adorable bag that reminds me of a Kate Spade style.  Then I didn't get to do the wedding and didn't get paid so practical me said, maybe I should just return the bag.  I was totally going to.  But it kept calling to me.  It said "let me live with you Bethie, please?"  I couldn't refuse it's sweet little voice so I said yes.  I also took to Instagram and many of you told me I made the right choice in keeping it.

On a separate trip to Target to get something else for Oliver (seeing a pattern here?) I also was weak and gave into temptation on two items I've been seeing everywhere between other bloggers and Instagrammers and well, I am a follower you guys.  I want to be like the cool kids.  So this mustard sweater and blanket scarf now live in my closet too.

We took a huge leap into the 21st century this week and said goodbye to our landline.  It's so strange to me.  But it was necessary, we were getting horrible service and we always both have our cell phones, so it was seriously just time.  I mentioned on Facebook that it's strange to me that Ollie won't grow up knowing what a landline even is - and ironically, now his favorite toy is the old school Fisher Price phone!

So that's where we're at.  I'm now off to run errands and clean my house like mad in preparation for tons of people to be in it tomorrow.  I'll be sure to share all about it on Monday.  I hope you all have a great weekend, wish you all could be here too!
