Pretty bird, pretty bird...

So this morning, our apartment was feeling a little warm (thanks, third floor), so we had the patio door open to get some cooler air inside. I was just grabbing some food and Justin was in the living room when suddenly, a bird flew in our apartment!!!! Yes, a robin flew in and was going nuts flying all over around the apartment because it couldn't find where it came in! Seriously, what do you do in a situation like that? You can't catch the bird, obviously. Even if you could, with like a butterfly net or something, I'd be afraid to let it out of the net, because this thing was literally flying around like a psycho. Eventually, it flew back out the door (thanks to Justin who bravely just inched closer and closer to it so it would keep flying closer and closer to the door.), so our apartment is bird-free, but I must say, it was quite the experience. And I would have paid big bucks for my camera to have magically appeared in my hands and taken a picture. Man oh man.

Seriously, what is it with all this nature trying to come in our apartment lately? Sheesh!

Wow, your apartment is certainly becoming one with Mother Earth. You'd better get the heck out of there before trees start growing of your living room floor.

Just like in the book "Where the Wild Things Are!" I loved that book as a kid. Maybe, the real reason I was made to love it so much was because God knew that one day this would happen to my apartment- that it would just turn into the outside world- and that I would have to be OK with it... yes. I'm pretty sure that's why.

Oh, how you loved that book as a kid. You are the one who inaugurated the Max costume and, at the risk of embarrassing you, you were so cute!

Your blog themes and headers are so cute! Did you design them yourself or did you find them online? Erin--you have totally lost 20 lbs!? That's amazing! I might have already told you this, but every time Todd and I would bump into you I would walk away and say, "Todd, Erin looks so skinny! Do you think she is losing weight or do you think I'm just seeing things differently now that I'm pregnant?" Being a man he didn't quite have an answer. But, Erin, you look fabulous (not that I thought you needed to lose weight before, but you do look great).
