a baby in footed pajamas, putting his head on my shoulder

a husband who smiles and jokes about my neuroses

You just reminded me that I have the season finale of Mad Men taped and not watched. Also, you need to add Glee to your list. You can watch it all online if you've missed it.

To historical fiction you can add the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. Once you get through the first hundred or so pages of the first book (Outlander), you will be hooked. You will fall in love with Jamie Fraser. He's real, he's a warrior, he's sexy and loves Claire more than life. Ignore the time traveling part. It's kinda like vampires in Twilight. It's there, but not central tot he story.

Love that your husband can laugh at you. Mine can not. Though, he can be really good about talking me off the ledge when I need him to.

Natalie,
On your recommendation I have watched Glee. I loved it! But I keep forgetting to record it! I read the Outlander series a few years back and did love it. I think there are a few new ones since I last read!

Yes, there are now seven books. I'm on book seven. She's writing an eighth. While I love the series, I can't imagine anything else happening to two of them. Seriously, they are getting too old!
