Besides sneezing like crazy

with the worst eye-scratching, nose-running, kleenex loving allergies. Here's some tid-bits of what we're up to...

Collecting: Vintage brooches to make something pretty with... someday.
Celebrating: Father's Day for this babe. Pretty much the coolest dad since Danny Tanner.
My favorite recent tweets of Collin's about being a daddy:
-Whenever my wife asks, "Can you take this dirty diaper to the outside trash?" all I hear is, "Hey, chuck this poop-bomb down the stairs."
-Wife is leaving to teach at an event in Puerto Rico til Monday. This place is gonna look like a pre-school frat house by then.
-At my 4-yr old's t-ball game. They don't even keep score in this league. How is my kid supposed to learn competitive jealousy and rage?
-My #2 kid turns big #2 tomorrow. For some reason my wife is shutting down my "Everybody Poops" theme
-When my wife asks, "Can you clean up the kid's toy room?" All I hear is, "Go kick the toys from the middle of the room to the sides."
-With two kids under the age of three, I've started saving time at restaurants by pouring an entire glass of lemonade on my pants as soon as we sit down.
-My wife wants to go see "Letters to Juliet" instead, I suggested we soak our eyes in lamp oil and stare directly at the sun for 2 hours.
-My wife said we should go off dairy and bought a bunch of Rice Milk. Am I supposed to shake it up before pouring it down the drain?

Craving: Strawberries by the crateful & shortcake full.

Creating: Booth samples with my next Dear Lizzy lines for CHA summer in July.

Played: At the local carnival.
Also, sending out Shades of Summer today! yay!
What are you up to?

Lora Oliver said...

Right now I am still laughing and wiping away tears from Collin's tweets. Please thank him for the humor, I needed it today. Love the sneak.

julieann said...

Hahaha, your husband is too funny! I think that he should write a book about his adventures with you and the girls!

Deana Birks said...

I love the bowl of brooches. I have a white bowl with feet that looks a lot like that and I actually set it on my counter this morning and asked myself, "What can I put in this bowl?"

Renee Zwirek said...

Ohhhhh, love the sneak peak of your next Dear Lizzy collection...thank you soooo much! I really needed this right now! Love the colors! Oh, Please tell me...Did you use a sizzix, cuttlebug, or cricut die cut for these pretty butterflies or are these part of your line? Gosh, too cute. I'm just trying to get garland and decor ideas together for my baby sister's baby shower in august. It's a butterfly-themed shower in shades of lavender, green, pink, and yellow. We found out it's a girl! :) How did you do it for Ashley? That looked like such a beautiful baby shower. I'm not in panic mode yet, but my brain feels SO fried. 5 things done on the checklist and only what...a million more things to go. Not complaining at all, because I love going all out on parties...you know. I think you do, too. Love your party pics. Anything for your family and friends...right? Have a great day! Hope Collin had a fun Father's Day...looks like he did. And, looking forward to the next baby bump pics.

lexsmama said...

Those tweets were hi-larious! I'm glad you all had a wonderful Father's Day!

I think those elastic waisted pants may make it into my household sooner than I thought..

*reyanna klein* said...

Oh my! He SO sounds like my hubby! LOL. I think they'd get along great! LOL. We don't have kids yet, but I'm definitely expecting the silliness to continue... :-)

LOVE the sneak too! Of course, judging by how much I loved the last Dear Lizzy, it's safe to say I will be owning all of the next release as well. :-)

And now I want some strawberry shortcake...

Jocelyn said...

ok your hubby is hilarious! i am loving all your vintage brooches...do tell where you find them????

Jane said...

Your husband is too flippin funny! Ahhh...that was a good read...really all men are pretty much the same!! ;)

Jill said...

My tummy hurts from laughing at those tweets!

ScrapMomOf2 said...

I was glad I wasn't actively drinking my coffee, because I laughed out loud! I actually snorted!! Snorting before 7 a.m. in a quiet house is also hilarious! So funny!! :)

Barbara said...

Hey Liz, the sneak looks fabulous ! And in Europe the shades have already been on some noses ;-)

SuZeQ said...

You two are perfect for each other. Truly.

Amy{thosefunnylittlegirls} said...

Your husband's tweets are too much!

Emilyt said...

I craved strawberries like crazy with my firstborn and the old wives tale about the birthmark came true! She started with one on her ankle and now it's on her thigh (13 years later...) Funny memory you brought back today. :)

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the laughter, another perspective - the mans side. What a hoot. I need to think more like that, feeling a bit overwhelmed lately! Thanks for your inspiration, you amaze me with your talents. KD

Amy said...

Those Tweets are super funny!!

I was pregnant last summer too and I have really bad allergies as well. My husband says I'm allergic to life!
I used an eye drop called Zaditor, saved my sanity. If your eyes are really, really itchy, like wanna scratch them out itchy, I would recommend those drops.

(btw, totally love your new line!)

Aimee said...

I need to get on twitter and follow Collin, he is too funny. Love his perspective on life and family.
I'm enjoying my first day of summer and coaching my daughter's All Star softball team....Go Lunachicks!

heather i said...

Collin gets the funniest of the day award!! Too silly! Cant wait to see the new Dear Lizzie stuff!! I'll be working all summer as usual - hardly feel like summer when your grown up :(. but I will get lots of good stay up late time with my kiddos ;), thats a plus!!

Sanditerese said...

So funny. I loved it.

alicia said...

Altaira said...

today i am trying to keep more than one meal in my tummy! i know it may seem like a small goal but it would be really nice to have a fun tummy! only 3-4 more weeks til i am out of the first trimester and (hopefully) will have my appetite back!

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

Nicki Lundeen said...

Your husband is so funny and witty!!!! It must be a hoot living with him. I've been eating tons of strawberries as well...but I am not pregnant!

carrie said...

My big baby belly got a nice jiggle out of those hilarious tweets...Collin, you sound just like my hubby. Right now, our family is enjoying the 100 degree Mississippi heat :) while we visit family and friends. I am loving every single second of it!!!

Tiffany said...

Your hubby's tweets have me and my hubby rolling on the floor laughing! He is so funny. I am sure it is never boring at your house.

I lost my voice and haven't made much of a sound today, except for the ridiculous SQUEAK that just happened by reading the tweets. ROFTLOL. It cracks me up. I'm not sure which picture I am more enthralled by, the pretty blonde locks, the strawberries, or those vintage brooches! Thanks for sharing.
