Because I can …

This post will be totally not health-related and will be a blatant blogger abuse to showcase photos of Miles (and me).

We went to Cincinnati this weekend.

My brother was getting married.

It was a bit hectic because Grandma decided she wanted attention.

She went into the hospital on Monday.

She had a pacemaker put in Friday.

And she still made it to the wedding an hour early.

I lit the unity candle for her.

I also did a reading.

Totally flubbed.

Miles slept.

Until the priest started to do the offertory blessing.

I hobbled to the back of church to nurse him while sitting on the toilet (not using it, I must clarify).

I got back for the end.

I clapped.

I hobbled to the back of church again.

My brother asked me to stop at Grandma’s to pick up jean shorts for him to change into at the wedding.

I conveniently forgot.

But not to switch out of my 3.5-inch heels into some ballet flats.

I went to the reception.

I ate a plate of fruit and veggies.

I ate cheese … and chicken … and pasta … and green beans.

And three of the most delicious cupcakes on the planet.

They were mini-size of course.

I played the mommy card and the “I’m babysitting Grandma tonight” card and left early.

And then I waited forever for Pacemaker Granny to decide that she was tired.

Then I slept.

The end.


  1. You forgot something:

    somewhere at the beginning it should say:

    "I looked gorgeous in my blue dress."

    It looks like you had a great time...

  2. You look great and miles is just so stinking cute! Sounds like a busy but fun time

  3. I love posts like this! Miles is a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e! Enjoy that little man they grow up so fast! Mine is turning 1 this month and it is HARD to believe!

  4. You look fantastic and Miles is adorable. Sounds like a busy weekend! Love the photos!

  5. I'm NOT joking when I say I was looking at the sideways photos of this gorgous person in blue holding Miles and was totally in love with Miles' hat and couldn't for the LIFE of me figure out who the beautiful woman holding him was. I said no less than 10 times, "Is that Kim?" "That's not Kim!" OMG, after I clicked on an upright photo of you - HOLY SMOKES GIRL - GET.YOUR.GROVE.ON!!!! Weight watchers and running and motherhood agree with you!!! Your husband married a hottie - and you tell him not to forget it!!! Miles' mom will be the most popular mom with his teenage friends (skip ahead a few years).

    I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother. So happy she was able to make the wedding!!!!

  6. Beautiful blue dress and beautiful family pics! So glad that your Grandma is good and made it to the wedding!
