This week a new resturaunt opened up, Houlihans. They make most everything from scratch and our meals were delicious. Kenzie enjoyed tasting their soup and asparagus. And I had to resist, the entire time she chomped down on it, from saying "ewwww..gross!" I want her to try things, and decide for herself what she likes and doesn't like. Wouldn't want my 'ewww..grossing'
at something to keep her from something that she might love.
The only thing she really doesn't care for her some of the beef mixed baby jar goop. I love that she doesn't generally find anything that she doesn't like.
Does anyone else watch Jon & Kate plus 8? I adore that family and their show. This past summer my sister and I watched and re-watched countless episodes.
I do have to say, when I first began watching the show I wasn't very thrilled with the concept, and it angered me that they were being given a show and countless opportunities that many others deserved as well. This was all felt in ignorance though. As I continued to watch and learn more about them and understand their situation better, I felt sad, and a little ashamed for feeling the way I did. They had endured struggles, and heartache, and had made the decisions that were best and right for them. I was impressed with their firm decision to not reduce when they were presented with how many babies they were going to have. And am constantly impressed with the way Jon&Kate bring up their family (regardless of the bickering and yelling that often happens...if you had 8 kids you'd probably do the same).
And as I watched the past couple of Monday's episodes, I shed several tears over their many beautiful moments. And the new promotional commercial for Monday nights on TLC, isn't it lovely? This is reality television at its best.
I've decided on what I'll be doing for The Spotted Box, and hope to show a finished piece here soon. But until then, here's one more new piece to be added to the shop:
