Chasing Ice

Have any of you seen the documentary “Chasing Ice”? If not, I would really recommend it. It is about one photographer’s quest to show the affects of climate change. He post cameras at different glaciers and icebergs around the world to see if any noticeable difference will be made in a short amount of time. […]

Very beautiful. Sadly, there are still people who don’t believe in global warming. I don’t know understand how that can be, but it’s true. I’m so interested in seeing this movie.

Curt and I have been wanting to see this movie since it started at the Darkside, but we can’t seem to be able to get out for a date! I’ve only heard rave reviews from people who have seen it. Thanks for the reminder that we need to get out and see it.

Adrienne,
It is a good movie. Half way through, I yawned a little… only because.. there is only so much excitement that comes with glaciers :). But it is definitely worth watching.
Amanda,
If it is still playing in the really early evening like it was for us, you should drop Naomi off and run over!

Girl’s Trip

(Lydia, Megan, Caroline, me, and Cherie… picture stolen from Megan’s blog) I am so lucky to have such great girlfriends. In celebration of Cherie and Megan’s b-days, we headed up to Portland for some amazing food, shopping, hanging out in the hot tub, and lots of talking. I’m looking forward to more weekends like this!

Did you get a chance to try on the Lululemon pants?

The Sock-ness Monster

There is seriously a monster that must come into our house at night who eats one of each pair of socks. We have serious issues over here when it comes to losing socks. I have finally resorted to trying to buy mostly the same sock for each person, but I still feel like socks are […]

Happens to us, too. I don’t have any great first hand experience to solve the problem, but I keep a small basket to pu spare socks in and periodically I go through and most of them end up finding their partners eventually. I have heard a good suggestions that I keep meaning to try: Get a mesh lingerie laundry bag for each person and have them put their dirty socks right into the bag when they take them off. Then you zip up the bag and put them straight into the wash. Sounds like a good solution if you can get everyone to put their dirty socks in the bag. I find socks all over the house.

We seem to have the worst problems with the littlest socks so that forced us into the habit of putting those into a mesh bag, like Adrienne suggested. Each bag has a loop and a snap so you can attach it to the hamper and we keep one at each hamper. It doesn’t matter whose socks go in the bag, as long as they go in as pairs. It works really well if you can get the socks in there. We’ve resorted to putting bags in a lot of places and most socks end up in one.

I have a laundry basket that is devoted to socks. I put all socks and underwear in the basket when I remove them from the dryer and I fold them about once a week. Don’t seem to loose many socks :)

Okay, so it is sounding like the laundry bags are the way to go? I may need them in like 5 locations in my house. Actually, if I had one right by the door, that would probably help a lot. Let’s see if I can make improvement in this area. It feels lame to have to keep spending money on socks!

So cute! I love the picture of all 3 kids. And the pictures of Gabe playing. I can almost hear him engrossed in play!
