strollin' on...

Ahhhh, I feel so much better! After a crazy couple of weeks and playing catch up thereafter, I was finally able to make it to the gym yesterday after work. I have a problem with sitting still, so being out of the gym does not equal inactivity - but there is just something to be said for the adrenaline boost gained from a real workout! This was also my first time at my new gym, WRS, which I already love way more than the sweat box gym of Jeff's that I went to for a couple of months. I was greeted by so many smiling faces (looking at my belly, I'm sure) and an abundance of air-conditioning! Woo hoo! I only made it for 30 minutes on the elliptical because I forgot my iPod... I'm surprised my attention span lasted that long watching ESPN with no sound and no closed-captions. I did learn that I can stomach Jim Rome as long as I don't have to hear his voice. (Unfortunately, I could easily think of a few more people that would also fit in that category!)

Upon my return home from the gym, I was greeted by Jeff. However, this was not Jeff wailing on the drums playing Rock Band, nor was it Jeff making a mess anywhere and everywhere. I was greeted by Jeff walking around the house with our brand new baby stoller, which he had just assembled all by his lonesome! He walked it back thru the house into Harper's room (perfecting his technique, no doubt) and proceeded to give me the tutorial on operations, storage, features, etc. It is perfect! A bonus - Wrigley really loves the storage basket down below, and I think she might even be able to walk herself AND Harper around the block! ;)

Back story on said stoller: I e-mailed Jeff yesterday telling him that the stroller I wanted was on sale at Target at $50 off regular price. I asked if he thought I should go ahead and buy it -- how(e) could I pass up such a fantastic deal?? His reply was cryptic, but I didn't have time to think any further about it as work kept me tied up all day long. Long story short, his mom bought the stroller yesterday along with some SUPER cute baby clothes. Harper is going to be stylin', that is fo' sho. Thanks, 'Nana Peel! (Get it - 'Nana Peel - Banana Peel?? I am a nerd and I love it!)

If you haven't noticed, Wrigley is our official product tester. It is really a shame that my camera wasn't handy when I put her in a onesie the other day... just an FYI, she currently runs about 6-9 mos in size and she looks good in purple.


  1. Oh how I laugh! And thanks for the nipple shot, Jeff! ~L

    I particularly enjoyed the nipple shot in pic #1. Nice aversion to the weenie dog in the purple onesie that was hanging out in the undercarriage.

    Ferra's been enjoying BC's stroller, as well. But don't tell Raymond. He thinks cats harbor some sort of ridiculous disease that makes them and humans defacate uncontrollably...particularly in people's beds. I told him that's absurd, that he's crazy....and that Ferra would never commit such a horrendous and insulting crime. He's just insane.

  3. My nipple(s) like(s) playing peek-a-boo from time-to-time. Glad you guys seem to enjoy it. Look for more special appearances in the near future!

  4. Hey Jenn..I wanna see the belly and see Miss Harper in your belly! MUAH
