Lately, we've been a busy family. I took a quick weekend trip to Tulsa for Mother's Day. Just me and the girls. Nathan stayed home and worked diligently on his dissertation. Hopefully he will be able to defend it this summer. The he will be Dr. Bloomfield.
Side-note: Wouldn't it be nice if when you finished your PhD you were given a crown and a bouquet of flowers while glitter fell from the sky? I mean, becoming a Dr. is way harder than, say, being crowned Miss USA, right? At least that is my opinion. And, Nathan really isn't a glitter and head ware kind of man ;)
The next weekend, I had a booth at the local Block Street Block Party. I shared it with the darling Amber Perrodin of Perrodin Supply Company. The day was pure joy. Familiar faces. Good food. Great music. Decent sales. And honestly, it was a day for me to be away from the girls. Sometimes alone time is good time.
I have to say, the longer I am in Arkansas, the more I am enjoying it. And it has only taken, oh, 4 years! Thankful for a handful of genuine friends. They probably don't even realize that without their support, I would just be floating alone.
A surprisingly good trip. Surprising because my children actually behaved. Like they were rock stars. It is amazing how much more fun you have as a parent when you can sit down and visit with family without your children constantly screaming ;)
Well, that is my life right now. How have you been?
