What's up: Random Bits and Links

I've been a bit too busy to post much lately, so here's what we've been up to:

~ Soccer, softball, and martial arts, oh my!  Bug has soccer twice a week (one practice, one game), their dad (who needs an official "blog" name.  From henceforth he will be known as Big B.) has softball every Sunday afternoon, and I'm officially hooked to the adrenaline rush known at the Y as BodyCombat, a mixed martial arts class that's all kicking and punching.  Does mommy need a timeout?  Yes.  And BodyCombat is the answer. Well, that and my weekly yoga class, which I've been going to for the past two years. 

~ Button is a little mockingbird.  She has the sweetest lilt to her voice as she says her favorite words: feet, eat, phone, up, done!, shoes, poopee, hat.  Oh, it's so cute.  I'll try to get video.

~ She blows zerberts on our bellies!  She's really good at it, too.  She gets so proud of herself when she makes a good noise.  I love it.

~ Button shushes her brother!  I have no idea where she picked it up, but just about every time her brother talks to her, she immediately "shushes" him right back!  She does it very sternly, too.  She's is such a sassy little thing! 

~ Cute things Bug has said lately...

"I like pooping.  It's my favorite!""

"How do the cells in our body eat?  Do they have little mouths?"

" I heard it in my brain." Said after singing a song about fish going 'puff'.

While listening to the radio in the car.  "Is this Gaga?"

"RAWR! RAWR! RAWR!"  (Sisters runs away screaming) "It's okay! I'm not a real dinosaur!"

And my favorite that he says when I ask him to do something, "Surely Doodily! Doodily Sure!"

~ Game of Thrones.  Do you watch it?  Big B watched the first season last year and although I tried really hard to get into it, I just couldn't.  You know... kids, bedtime - it just didn't work out.  Now I'm all caught up on season one and up to date on season two.  I love it!  Peter Dinklage is amazing.  HBO rocks.  And speaking of HBO, True Blood starts up again soon.  YIPPEE!  I've missed my favorite werewolf...

and vampire...

You're welcome.

Now where were we?  Oh yeah, here are some great links:

A Love Letter to Mothers Everywhere

Have you seen this yet?

Good eats found on Pinterest that I've actually made and LOVE.  Caprese Quinoa Salad, Crockpot Chicken Tacos, Man Pleasing Chicken, Chicken Avocado Salad

I plan on this one later this week - Blackened Chicken and Cilantro Lime Quinoa

Loving this photography idea. Maybe I'll give it try!

And to get a bit political... so proud of our President!
