I Spilled the Beans

Literally...I spilled pinto beans last night.

Ray and I had already gone to bed when I realized that I forgot to put up our supper of pinto beans and cornbread. Which was really good, by the way. So I jumped up and went to put it all away. I was trying to get the beans in a freezer bag 'cause I've been freezing stuff for after Owen is born. As I was dumping it in the bag, I thought, "this seems like such a bad idea." It was. The bag tipped over and spilled bean juice all over myself and the floor. Ray heard a splash and a gasp and he jumped out of bed. He thought my water had broken! I was just standing there in a puddle of beans and we both started laughing so hard. As we were mopping, Ray said, "You don't always make the best decisions, do you?" I can honestly say that he is right. I usually realize in the middle of doing something that it's a really bad idea. But then it's too late and I'm covered in bean juice! Oh well, it usually makes for a funny story.

Change is Coming

Our lives are about to change pretty drastically in a few weeks. I am aware of this but people keep feeling the need to remind me. I am excited about the change. I want change. We have been just the two of us for over 5 years now and we're ready for a third Malouf. If we didn't expect things to change after bringing home a baby, we would be idiots. The thing that bothers me about people constantly reminding me of the change is that they always say it in a negative way. "Oh you'd better get ready 'cause you're life is about to change!" It's always like a warning of an upcoming disaster. Are kids really that scary? Of course, I realize it's going to be hard and I will be sleep deprived for a good chunk of time. But is it really that bad? I don't know, but I can't wait to bring home the little miracle growing inside my belly right now. A little nervous, but super excited. I love him more than I thought possible and we haven't even officially met yet!

Butterfly Boucher

This week's featured artist is Butterfly Boucher. Yes, that is her real name. Seriously. She has an interesting voice and is an incredible musician, too.

This video is great. The weird dancing is my favorite. I like that she doesn't take herself very seriously. Enjoy!

A Quick Word of Advice

Never should you under any circumstances plan to be 8 months pregnant in August. Unless you live in a state that doesn't get as hot as hades.
