Thursday Randoms

--So my newest obsession is this Fruit Infusion Pitcher. I pretty much just drink water and don't mind it, but sometimes it's nice to have a little something extra. This pitcher is such an easy way to get flavored water without having to add fruit to your cup every single time. This picture is of some blueberry cucumber water, which is so refreshing. I also like to put strawberries and lemons, or lemons and limes...there are lots of combinations I want to try. You can also make flavored tea with this. Can you sense my enthusiasm about this?! Ha! And no, I wasn't asked to post about this...but I love when simple things make me happy so I thought I'd share it here. I bought mine on Amazon but I've also heard Bed Bath & Beyond carries them. I checked a few stores though and they never had any so that's why I ended up just ordering online.

--Thanks for all the sweet feedback on my new Project 365 366 format. (It's so hard for me to remember to say Project 366. It just doesn't flow.) It seems this new format is actually much easier to read, and I'm so glad to hear that! Thanks again for the input. I also wanted to mention an app I'm using to help me keep track of my pictures. It's just called Project 365 if you search the app store, and I use the free version. I started using it towards the end of last year and never posted about it because it went crazy on me when I did a software update, so I thought it might not be a good app. After a few people have recently mentioned how much they love it, I decided to delete the app and re-download it, and so far it seems good to go! It has a feature where you can set a daily reminder to take your picture too, so that's super helpful.
--I also wanted to say thanks for everyone's encouragement and support about my post asking for advice on Manny's attachment issues. He went to MDO on Tuesday, and it was a rough drop off. Quite a few people suggested having him walk in instead of carrying him, so I did that. And it was SO sad....as we started walking towards the building his lip started quivering and he started whimpering...he knew what was coming. But he kept walking, just very slowly. When we got to the room, it was crazy...LOTS of kids crying, I'd say probably because they were just coming back from break. Anyway, I dropped him off as quickly as I could, and he wasn't thrilled, but calmed down pretty quick. (I listened around the corner.) When I went to pick him up, they said he had a pretty good day overall. They noticed that he would go get toys to play with but bring them back over by the teacher; he just always wanted to be close to her. He wouldn't take a nap (which is a WHOLE other bag of issues I won't go in to) so during nap time, they ended up taking him to the nursery (6-12 month olds) to let him play. And you know what? They said he just took off running in there and had a great time playing independently. So they think his regular class just might be overwhelming to him...who knows. He isn't around kids his age really all that much. All his cousins are younger or older, and he loves playing with them, so I don't know if that has something to do with it or if this is just a random phase? All I know for sure is he's too stinking cute...and I'm praying he settles in soon. :)

Well this post ended up kind of long, rambly, full of run-on sentences, and the use of the word "so" at least 97 times...imagine that. Hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday! :)


  1. Thanks for sharing that app. I am doing Project 366 this year and this will come in handy.

  2. I'm doing project 366 to, and I also keep saying 365, ha!! Love this!

  3. Ooooh I love that pitcher! I'm going to have to look into that...thanks for sharing, sweet girl! And saying prayers for little Manny...I know he'll adjust just fine! And I'll be praying for you, too, Momma! I know that's tough on you. Keep your chin up :)

  4. I like that pitcher! Very cool and affordable!!

    Oh I just want to come and give Manny and big hug! Poor little friend :( Breaks my heart!

  5. I am debating taking Noah to a MDO just two days a week for a couple of hours so he can be around other kiddos his age! But I am afraid b/c he is like Manny and is only around his older cousins. SO I am not sure how he will do! And the missing a nap thing would so be his problem! How many days does he go? What times does he go?
