insta-friday. {catch-up edition}

it's been a while since i've joined up with jeannett for insta-friday, but if there is a teeny silver lining to choi boy being sick with bronchitis (boo! and blech!), it's having extra time to waste blog. ;) well, that and the extra cuddles and sweet time with my boy (which is actually a big, fat, glittery silver lining), of course!

here are some insta moments from the last couple weeks:

i went and got my hair did. perms have come a long way, my friends. all hail the super awesome korean pama. :)

Photobucket
see, a far cry from the crazy, tight curls of the 80s! though, slighly uncle-jesse-from-full-house-or-inigo-montoya-like...

my boy and i made my favorite fall treat...pumpkin chocolate chip muffins:
Photobucket
methinks he liked them.

it's not even (quite) halloween yet and there is christmas stuff EVERYwhere. don't get me wrong, i love the most wonderful time of the year. i'd just like to fully embrace and get used to fall first before winter is shoved in my face.
choi boy, on the other hand, is mesmerized by all the twinkle lights and upon seeing santa, decided he (whom cb is not even really aware of) needed a hug.
Photobucket
it was very sweet, but don't think i didn't have frightening visions of the entire display falling over and on top of cb. and those frightening visions were had as i snapped that picture. first things first! duh. ;)

choi boy really loves to "play" basketball. he has no less than three basketball hoops of varying sizes and no less than 6 different basketballs littered around the house. when all of those basketballs are nowhere to be found (which happens quite a bit, actually), cb will use anything as a substitute.
Photobucket
anything.

the other day, i was taking choi boy's shirt off so he could get into the bath. i had forgotten that i had put his nerd shirt on as an undershirt until i saw it peeking out under the two buttons i had undone. it was as though he was reverse superman, hiding his clark kent uniform under his super one. ;)

choi boy was my date to our school's international night...we went to see my kindergartners dance the merengue (they were SO. freaking. cute.), but when cb started to get a bit antsy, we escaped to my classroom to play for a bit. when we left, cb took a souvenir with him:
Photobucket
why, yes, that would be an asian man in a business suit driving that tractor. perhaps cb chose something to give us a glimpse into his dual career future? hmmm...

we met up with choi boy's noona again and headed over to a local pumpkin patch.
cb was *very* excited about the pumpkins!
Photobucket
no, really, he was excited. he was also interested in picking up every pumpkin he could. :)

of course, before we did anything else, we had to take a ride on the train!
Photobucket

cb and his noona braved the moon bounce slide,
Photobucket

checked out some goats,
Photobucket
(he tried to feed this pregnant one some rocks.)

and he even shared some precious popcorn with noona.
Photobucket
true love.

i'm back to playing words with friends after a short school-started-and-it's-crazy! hiatus.
looks like i need some brushing up:
Photobucket
although, in my defense, i use "gah!" as a way of expressing shock or disgust quite frequently. so there.

Photobucket
piper is so sweet and patient. i love her.

cb LOVES bathtime. i mean, looooooves. he could spend hours in the tub.
his latest bathtime antic is "swimming". he lays flat down on his back and kicks his arms and legs around, often singing because his voice sounds funny underwater. it's hilarious and awesome.
Photobucket
Photobucket
my mom is convinced he got sick from all the swimming, but the doctor said cb's ears were perfectly clear, thankyouverymuch.
;)

i may have found my newest snack obsession.
Photobucket
um, yes, that is a nearly empty bag almost finished during one sitting.
don't judge. they have 10g of whole grain in each serving!
so what if i ate 3 servings?!

my momma gave us a new humidifier for choi boy's room. it's korean and all sorts of fancy shmancy. it came with a handy manual written in both korean and english. and not surprisingly, it was chock full of some awesome engrish.
my favorite? the happy and angry humidifiers:
Photobucket
don't forget to use your humidifier "at the flat place," or it will be angry.

my boy is currently sleeping and sounding like darth vader. it's so sad and it makes my heart hurt when he has a coughing fit and is gasping for air. :( i hope the antibiotics work their magic soon soon soon.
but, in true cb-form, even a pesky illness can't get him down! except for his bouts of coughing, he is still his silly, wacky self, albeit with a crazy raspy voice.
Photobucket
the only difference? he's a lot more cuddly when he's sick.
Photobucket
which i don't mind.
not one bit.
