No News Would Have Been Good News!

Well today is Monday and I'm hoping that this week will be a little less eventful than last.  Last week I was glued to the tv trying to keep up with the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman trial, Aaron Hernandez's arrest, Paula Deen's N-word fallout, the Boston bomber's indictment and the Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage and voting rights. All of which made for an interesting news week.  Of course there were other news stories that were not as highly publicized but these kept Twitter and Facebook abuzz!  For some reason I feel like the news is always more interesting in the summer.  Maybe because I can actually slow down and watch it...who knows!  I am so not a news junkie, I don't even watch the nightly news but I have been all on for the latest on Paula Deen and for everything Aaron Hernandez.



On top of the crazy news week we celebrated our 5th anniversary on Friday.  To make it extra exciting we spent the afternoon in the pediatricians office with a reaction from the 12 month MMR vaccine.  So much for "celebrating"! ;)  It's always exciting when real life trumps the fairy tale you wish for!  Now that we have beat the 101.7 fever and now have the rash that rounds out the reaction, I can say this we should be better very soon.  Better in that my parents arrive tomorrow and Emerson's Fairytale First Year (1st Birthday) Party is on Saturday!  Once all of the family leaves town and the floors are re-mopped...I can kick up my feet and really relax because the grandparents are here on Emerson Duty!  Maybe Chris and I can sneak away and go to dinner or something.  Last year we had a 3 week old baby that we were afraid to leave, what a difference a year makes.

Sweaty nose from her fever breaking...poor thing was miserable!

My contribution to the economy via Walgreens! ;)

So here's to an exciting but quiet Fourth of July week!  I just realized that today is July 1st.... I am begging that no one do anything foolish this week.  We have had enough foolery in June...just ask the NFL!  

Just because it has been an AMAZING 5 years!
