Tim’s mom and her husband were in town last week. Olivia had a great time visiting with her Grammy and Grandpa Craig. So did we.
We were able to have a lot of adventures in the week they were here.
We celebrated the Fourth of July.
We went down to Pearl Street Mall in Boulder and to the Celestial Seasonings Tea Factory.
We went into Rocky Mountain National Park. We hiked around. We saw snow in July.
I’ll be blogging over the next week or so about these adventures, but needless to say Olivia was smothered in kisses and hugs and love during their visit. We don’t live in the same state as any of our family so we really cherish the times when we get to visit and spend time together.
P.S. Grandparents=naps for Mommy! Woohoo! Buh-bye #48!

My mom left this morning. Sad face.
She was here for ten glorious days. We had a great time.
We also sewed a pillowcase and a crib sheet, which I don’t have pictures of yet.
Then, we baked.
Creamy Blueberry Lime Loaf Cake.
Sorry about the terrible picture. This was the best I could do. The forks were a-flyin’. It’s a testament to how good this was.
Homemade Strawberry and Nutella Pop Tarts. Strawberry on the left, Nutella on the right.
Morning Glory Muffins
We also just hung out. We played with the baby. We explored Louisville, Boulder, and Denver. We played cards and board games. We went to Rocky Mountain National Park. We took walks. We giggled and made silly jokes.
I love my mama.

Procrastination. I both love it and hate it. I love the times when I know I should be doing something else, but reading, watching tv or napping just feel so decadently good. Of course, I hate it when the deadlines come back to bite me in the heinie. Then I feel pressure and stress to the point that I swear to myself that I will stop procrastinating….starting tomorrow! Ha!
I’ve always been a procrastinator. Whether it be studying for finals, paying bills or doing laundry, I have been known to put off tasks as long as possible with the rationalization that I work better under pressure. I know that isn’t true. I know that if I plan ahead and do things in small chunks well ahead of time, the finished product is exponentially better. As I’ve aged and matured there are some areas where I don’t procrastinate anymore. Bills are paid on time and now, with an infant, I can’t afford to let the laundry get ahead of me.
