my body has this uncontrollable chemical reaction to winter where it decides to soften and sag. it's as if my body is conditioned to naturally gains ten pounds to keep me warm during the cold holiday season in idaho and utah. or perhaps it's that all i ever want to eat is bread? that could be it. but i'm not complaining! there's something comforting, endearing almost?, about a little squish here and there. mostly there.

but that's besides the point.

the point is that during my thanksgiving break in sunny southern california, i donned a swimsuit and sandals (oh, another side-effect of winter is heinous feet that even the most moisturizing lotion can't fix). i know! i wasn't psychologically prepared for this! i had mentally prepared myself to wear three layers, at least, for the months? but man, was it nice! like, i think we've been doing thanksgiving all wrong where i'm from all of these years. we've been missing out on shoving our untanned, unshaven, and unkempt silhouettes into one-pieces (or two-pieces, depending on your self-control with a bread-bowl) all of these years! the thought! ;)

and can we all cross our fingers that m(ustache)ovember will, in fact, end in november? please?

p.s. is that not the cutest baby? jeff's brother + his wife heidi have set the bar unnaturally high for child-expectations. all i can promise is that our child will have prominent eyebrows and short attention span. see?  doomed.


  1. HA HA HA AH!! Love all the mustaches! HA HA HA!

  2. I gained six pounds over the past 11 days. No biggie. I swear its a survival instinct or something??!?


be nice?
