Travelin' Circus



The members of the Jeans household are on the road to spend the week with Mook for his business trip.

To the cars passing by, I'm sure it's a bit comical to see all the STUFF we have crammed in the car--and what traveling circus doesn't have monkeys? Oman made sure that his Sock Monkey, Pierre (we've decided he's French...) made the cut for being packed.

I always look forward to road trips--and it helps that Oman is a fan of car rides. We play the Alphabet game (I usually win..hehe), talk about silly stuff, and the serious stuff--helps when neither person can leave the room when it gets heated.

Oman and I are so glad we can be with Mook this week--and a super duper added bonus is getting to see awesome blogger ladies!

And tomorrow is Mook's birthday! His birthday last year was spent getting me admitted to the hospital after I started bleeding from the previa......so to be here--with both my boys--makes me weepy and so, so thankful for the awesome care I got while in the hospital...but I'm SO glad to be on the other side...

Please leave Mook some big birthday hugs--AND he's jumped on the Twitter bandwagon--@dissident18 so be sure to raz him just a little for turning another year older before I do :)

  1. Happy Birthday, Mook!

    Our Wal-E-world had pillow-sized sock monkeys! They were tempting...but didn't make the budget cut. :) (And by pillow-sized, I mean body-pillow-sized - like 3 feet long)

    Have a great trip!

  2. I LOVE the idea of a traveling circus. The colorful cloth, plastic, and wooded toys are TAKING OVER!

    Oscar loves car rides too, which is nice. Have a great time, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOOK.

  3. Happy Birthday Mook!

    Last week we lost our power during a storm and Hubby was working so I had to pack up myself and the kiddo and head somewhere that had electricity (and heat!). Apparently packing light is NOT an option anymore. Even for just one night!

    HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS to MOOK! I think this birthday sounds like it will probably be way more fun and way less stressful than the last one!

There is nothing like a good pair of jeans; they shape us, support us and make us look our best. I'd love for you to share your jeans with me!
