a dozen things



01. is anything more dreamy than being in central park with your best friend husband?! i think not. thank you for coming along with me on my nyc vacay recap. you are too kind.

02. bear took a monster nap yesterday. the hardest thing is knowing if one should awaken a little one from a nap or not. usually i opt to let the boy sleep. he loves his sleep. somedays i go in and pick him up and feel like i can see his growth right before my eyes!

03. i had a close encounter with a celebrity the other day. it was equally exhilarating and embarrassing. i'm not quite ready to discuss it in detail. lets just say i was starstruck at the sight of him but tried to keep my act together as i completely admire him. i am not so sure if i seemed sweet or stalkerish or downright dorky. still it was a thrill, though i'm trying to forget it so i don't keep going over our meeting in my mind.

04. i've gotta quit thinking that if i meet certain celebrities we'd instantly be besties.

05. bloggers on the other hand really do feel like real friends. so approachable and awesome. i am a firm believer that the comment box (and straight up email) is the best way to befriend bloggers in real life. don't be shy. speak up.

06. all of you who watch bethenny on bravo say aye. 'aye.'

07. my friends, julie, hilary and i saw mindy gledhill in concert. there were globes on the stage, hanging upside down umbrellas and twinkle lights. it was perfect for her music. i loved mindy. she wore a black dress, converse shoes and butterfly wings and she came to idaho. she is adorable. did you know she's pregnant? and simply darling and friendly and wonderful. we'd totally be besties if we lived on the same street. the song hourglass made me cry.

08. sooner or later i'm going to draw up a post wherein you (hopefully) ask questions and i'll answer them. i'm running on empty when it comes to personal post ideas.

09. all of you soaking up the last episodes of oprah, say aye. 'aye.'

10. splurged on jumbo strawberries and dipped them in chocolate and sprinkles for girls night out.

11. am excited to hang out with family and celebrate at my dad's big event this weekend.

12. blogger somehow misplaced this post and lost all the comments. boo.

I think that anybody who met you Marta would instantly crave your friendship!

And 'aye' for Bethenny. Fun to watch a reality show about (mostly) happy people!

Susan said...

An "aye" for all of the above! Very curious what celebrity you met...

holtkamp said...

love the picture of you and dan!

Lady Day said...

Double "aye" for Marta! I will never be unconvinced that when I meet my favorite celebs we will be besties, let's keep hope alive. And "whipped cream clouds", you capture those so well Marta. Have a great day!

Kirsten Krason said...

I love Bethany! aye!

McKinze said...

Aye...I too love Bethenny! I just started watching a few weeks ago, while in NYC visiting my bestie. I thought this last episode would be a baby announcement, but no...

Hil said...

A celebrity?! In IDAHO??? Or was it while you were in New York? Can't wait to hear the story, I hope you'll share.

I love that picture of you and Dan. So adorable.

I also love the "whipped cream clouds" here. They are my favorite. That and summer thunderstorms. We really do live an beautiful place!

1. when we drive from UT to MT I usually wonder if it'd be possible to run into you in ID somewhere b/c i think we'd be pals.

2. i love mindy's latest album. i'm looking forward to seeing her perform in provo next month. i'm bringing my kids so they can sing along.

3. i always opt to let them nap. except my babies aren't babies anymore and don't nap. sometimes i miss that.

4. i love when the sun is shining and the mountains are green.

5. love the bike photo at the top.

did you ever see the video of robbie playing with mindy? That's when I fell totally in love with hourglass. First time I'd heard any of her songs too. That's fun she's expecting, I have a special place in my heart for creative people that raise families while they're at it :)

Your personal posts are always cute. Gotta hear more about the celeb sighting. I've had a few encounters and even though I try so hard not to act like an idiot, I always do. They are just people who like being treated like just people. That's what I have to chant to myself. :D

tharker said...

Okay, I'm coming out of lurkdom. I just have to say I love your blog!

Col said...

Just wanted to pop in and leave a comment, as I always read but never do thanks to google reader. :) I was also JUST thinking that I haven't done a post like this in a while, so it was funny to see you do one.

AYE for Bethenny! I just adore her and her whole crazy little family. :)

Have a great one!

Nessa said...

You know, we ditched cable last Setpember and I haven't watched anything unless it is on streaming flickr. I feel left out some times. I am missing Oprah's last season... darn it.

Mama Bird said...

Marta - love love love your blog...am also sure we would be fast friends if we met in "real" life!!

And aye to Bethenny....she inspires me to go after your dreams and make them happen.

holtkamp said...

hmm, i think i said something like "i love the picture of you and dan, you look amazing!" before blogger went weird :)

Aye, aye on Oprah and Bethenny. My sister was on Bethenny's last show at one of her talks. I'm also loving Oprah's Season 25. Makes me want to be a producer!
