'Ey Bey-Bey!

Yesterday was Mother's Day. Hope everyone did something nice for their mom! My brother, "adopted sister" and I cleaned out our mom's kitchen. Which was bordering on hoarder status. In every drawer she had stashed some amount of used birthday candles and/or wine corks. I also found a basket of old spaghetti jar lids and a whole cupboard of empty salsa containers. Aside from all that half the cooking utensils were broken. Towards the end of the cleaning session we decided to have a contest to see who could guess how many corks had accumulated. The winner got to relax while the others finished the job. I won with my guess of 60 corks... there were 69!

Mom & I

 All this Mom talk reminds me of all the new babies. It seems like everyone just had one or has one on the way. It's got me thinking about baby names because, of course, I have to throw my pick into every lottery I can find. My boyfriend's brother had a little girl recently, and as his wifey neared the finish line my boyfriend and I ran across a baby name book at a flea market. We were like "Oh, let's get this for Patrick and Holly!" but then we ended up keeping it because we became obsessed with picking out the names that we liked. We are sickening, I know. So anyway, I feel kind of embarrassed about this but I discovered that I love picking out baby names! Am I alone here? It is so fun! My pick for Pat and Holly? Well, I wanted them to call her Ivy, because I thought Holly and Ivy sound cute together but they wanted something really Irish, so changed my vote to Moira. Sadly, my suggestions didn't really catch on. They decided to call her Shannon. Oh well, now I can just exhaust my baby naming energy in this post and hopefully some of you are preggers and can put my suggestions to good use.
