At least I can laugh at myself!

Hello all! I trust some of you are enjoying the chillier weather (I, for one, am not!). It has always comforted me in some small way, though, that there are people who come alive in the winter. So, hurray for you!

In celebration of fall, Colin and I will be going out of town this weekend on our respective CotA youth camping trips. I'm excited to smell like campfire and spend some quality time with some middle and high schoolers!

Also, thought I'd share because to be honest, it makes me laugh... Two things that have made my pregnant hormonal self cry this past week (And I'm not talking about the time I was on my period and started crying at the last verse of Taylor Swift's "Romeo and Juliet"-- True story).

1. The trailer for this movie-- "Being Elmo".

Who doesn't love Elmo? I can't wait for our children to discover the joy of Sesame Street. The fact that his birth is an underdog story made me choke up. Here's the trailer.

2. I'm a little ashamed to admit this one, as well: Grey's Anatomy. I know, I know, a little late to the bandwagon (like 8 years), but I saw that all seasons were up on Netflix when I was in the throes of first trimester sickness/fatigue, so I gave it a shot. DO. NOT. WATCH. THIS. SHOW. WHILE. HORMONAL.

Yup, totally cried.

Have a great day, everyone!


  1. Rachel,

    You crack me up! I love reading your posts! :) Is it bad that I cry over shows like this (even The Office), while NOT pregnant?!? haha.

  2. Grey's Anatomy became my roommate's and my show last semester. I actually started after her so I got into it in Season 2 (maybe half way through) but finished over the summer. So glad it is back on : )

  3. Aubrey-- I am so glad I can give you a little chuckle! ha! I can totally see crying over stuff like that while not pregnant. sheesh. talk about emotional...

    Kirsten-- I can't wait to see the newer episodes and be caught up someday! I'm sure they continue to be super intense...
