This lake is literally 4 miles from our house. Maybe less. And we're always forgetting about it.
My favorite part of this day wasn't the water or the weather, though. Carter was completely in touch with his fashion sense and asked for his hat before we left the house. I don't know where he developed a concern for hats, but he made his vanity-ridden mommy a little proud.
I downloaded the (free) instagram app to my phone last week! I didn't know instagram was an entire community of completely random picture postings. I'm always fighting an impulsive itch to post obnoxious self portraits, faces Carter makes or pointless food I'm eating - but let's be honest - if you do that too much on Facebook, you're weird. Or young. Either way, there's people from all spans of your life watching you there. Now I just do it on instagram all day. The people over there want to see this
Matt has it too. He doesn't post pictures (yet. I'll get him to). Follow us? rMeghann and Mfeldwieser. We'll follow you back!
I've still been working hard at reviving my practically neglected YouTube channel. One of my recent videos is about how I style my hair.
My neighbor showed me this article about introverts. The writer is amazing, and I can't stand not to share it because it's so me. I know my quiet personality isn't as obvious if all you know are my YouTube videos and blog outpourings, but I've found so much relief in 10 minutes of reading about my actual orientation. A few of the ideas that really struck me -
I can perform for an audience when I need to, but small talk is awkward.
I like conversations that involve intimate thoughts.
Other people exhaust me.
I love being alone. Love.
And you know what? I've been so hard on myself for my entire life for being shy and always feeling like I have to force myself to be better. I could figure out ways to perfect clothes, hair and makeup but never how I felt and acted. Now I feel defined; maybe it's alright to just relax and be okay with me. Liberated from the definition of shyness.
I think I've found my Spring style. And it's a little weird.
Leotards. (aka bodysuits in the fashion world.)
(I got the idea here.)
Hear me out for a sec. Using a leotard as a top looks so clean, comfortable, fitted and classy. Your shirt doesn't need adjusting because it won't sag or bunch. Throw a skirt over it and go. An armful of leotards and skirts are at the top of my list to buy.
Top Baby Blogs reset its numbers last month, and I completely missed it! I think poor Bringing up Bumble is ranked in the hundreds somewhere. Please vote for me? Click here.
And that's me, for now. More on Carter soon!
