At the beginning of summer, the Red Head and I jotted some things on this bucket list print out from Almost Makes Perfect and it has made for such a fun season! We’ve gone to the zoo, visited the beach, walked to happy hour, tried s’mores and busted out a new red wagon, just to name a few. Looking forward to the fall version already! I’m seeing some bonfires and cider in our future.

Sign me up for an afternoon of this.

Colette (overalls) and Celia (dress) somehow turned one last month. Not sure how that happened but it’s been pretty wonderful.

Pretty much what’s going on in my brain at any given moment these days.

It’s hard to sum up what life has been like for the last four months. My little loves (nicknamed the bug and the bean) came roaring onto the scene six weeks early, enjoyed a month long stay in the NICU, lived through two blizzards (rude, Minnesota…), met a very skeptical and very large big grey dog and changed everything about our lives. There’s no turning back and we’d never want to. As of April 2, everything is different and we feel oh-so lucky. Thanks for picking us, C&C.

Welp, after 33 weeks of indoor cycling, traveling, home renovations, and adventures, the twins and I are officially on bed rest. If you know me, you know this is going to be a pretty torturous time but I’ve got work to keep me busy (thank goodness for technology!), lots of Netflix recommendations, a library not too far down the road where the Red Head can get me the latest reads, a rekindled love of Sudoku and a pretty amazing support system. I’m not sure how things will be looking around here in blog land but I’m going to focus my energy on getting these babes stronger every day. So, for now, I’m kicking my feet up and living that bed rest lifestyle. See you on the other side!

The last two weekends, the Red Head, babies and I have been completely blown away by the generosity of the people in our lives. There was a shower in MN with friends and family from across the country, a Beyonce-themed shower with friends that have become like family and a shower in Chicago (photos above) that brought together people from all stages of my life. It was really humbling to be surrounded by these people and feel the love and excitement as we prepare for this big (!!) adventure ahead. I’m not sure how we got so lucky but I can’t wait for the Erickson Twins to meet each and every one of these amazing characters. But not for many more weeks, please…

Doesn’t this scene look like a perfect way to spend a morning this weekend? I realize it’s only Monday but here’s to looking ahead.

Holy smokes, did I feel off today. Between being almost 31 weeks pregnant, some odd stomach bug and a dash of anxiety, I’m a mess. Time to re-charge, grab the grey dog for some cuddles and lay low for an evening. Here’s hoping for a better tomorrow.
