Flowers and Buguidos

These are a couple of perennials in my flower bed that I think are absolutely gorgeous. If you know what they are, please let me know! I know very little about plants and can use all the help I can get. I should have probably taken some shots farther back so you could see the whole plant. Oops!

 Calder has started to really pretend while he plays.  Lately, we have been pretending to be dinosaurs and dragons.  Calder LOVES to roar. Last night at the ball game, Calder was climbing to the top of the bleachers while I watched the game. He asked me to come to the top to look the dragon. I obliged and when I got to the top started pretending to see a dragon flying over the top. Calder promptly said, "no, dragon down here." and pointed to a dragonfly that had landed on one of the seats! Calder knows not to kill dragonflies, because I told him they eat buguidos (a.k.a. mosquitos). Calder is quick to tell the mosquitos, "go away buguidos! Buguidos no bite me."


  1. My guesses on the flowers is a bell flower and then a sweet william.

  2. My guesses on the plants are blue clips bell flower and phlox. Like you said, it's hard to say for sure without seeing the whole plant.

  3. I thought Bellflowers and Phlox too! :)

    I might have to start calling them buguidos from now on too... and emphasize on the BUG part!

  4. first one i think is campunula blue clips and second one a type of phlox maybe. - nice to see you all yesterday even tho not much chance to visit with keeping hawkeyes on miss kinsey!

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
