Sweet Girl

I can't believe my baby is already going into second grade! I can't call her baby anymore, but she will always be my baby girl. She's my favorite girl. I couldn't have asked God for a better child, because when He gave me Emma, He outdid any thought I ever had ! She did so amazing on our vacation and this is just a very small sample of some of my favorite pictures of her. I hope you love them as much as I do !

If I Were A Rich Man......

You're singing the tune now aren't you ? So, I'm at work today. This is not a normal Saturday for me, but since we are short-handed, I'm here. After a little web surfing I came across a to-die-for dress, and I'll gladly take your donations......
Now, I can think of several reasons why this dress caught my eye....unique color, I love stars, and it has a little bit of a retro flair in my opinion. I found it at Anthropologie, so no wonder it's awesome !
I think this dress would pair nicely with a subtle beige or nude pump, but since I am who I am, I'm going with bright yellow !

But, this would be my choice for subtlety. I'm just not usually that subtle !
A dress like this has to be well thought out. My new favorite hairstyle to wear, I know it's not new, but knew for me since my hair is finally long enough, the classic, loose side bun. I think it would be nice and sweet.

And last, but certainly not least, the face. I'm thinking light eyes and firey red lips. The red would offset the yellow shoes off course. Ok, maybe not really, but I think it would look fantabulous. So, makeup much like this dummy.....please don't be offended. I meant that in the nicest way possible.

While you are ooing and awwing over my fab finds for today, I'll keep dreaming !

A Few Universal Truths

1. Nothing stinks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you are wrong. (HATE THAT)

2. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten page report that I swear I didn't make any changes to.

3. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5 or # 6, I'm pretty sure we all know how to get out of our neighborhood.

4. I hate leaving the house confident and feeling like I look good and then not seeing anyone of importance all day. What a waste !!

5. Wouldn't you rather try to carry 10 plastic bags on each arm versus making 2 trips to bring in the groceries ? (why do we do that?)

6. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer after you die.(you know what I mean!)

7. Don't you hate it when you miss a call on the last ring, only to call that person back immediately and it goes to their voicemail ? Where did they go after I didn't answer ?

Last one....

8. Even under ideal circumstances, most people have a hard time locating their keys in a pocket, finding a cell phone in their purse, and pinning the Tail on the Donkey, but I bet money that everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

Disneyworld 2010

First let me apologize for the lack of posts this past week, but there was no time ! I won't go into lengthy details at the moment because I'm at work, but let me just say that Disney was so wonderful and we'd go back tomorrow. Feel free to start looking at our unedited pics on Flickr, but I will slowly be adding more. There were only 800 or so !! If you've never been, you must go !!

One more thing...here is a little closer look at the calender. You can't see the whole thing, but it's super cute. James' sister worked very hard to make them for the girls. Thanks Aunt T !!

The Countdown is Over!

Here it is...the last day of the count down calender....We are very excited that the trip is finally here ! The eagle flies at midnight...that's code for: we leave at midnight. I think I'm the only one ready for the drive, but I'm ok with that. I'm a road trip kind of gal. Pray for safe travel and decent weather and check back for updates. I'm going to try to post some while we are gone.

This is Zoe. She's a Boston Terrorist and she wears dentures. Ok, she doesn't really, but her under bite is so bad that her teeth stick out most of the time. They are so perfect and straight that we call them dentures. Its very hard to take a picture of her because she's part kangaroo, but I like her.
