Those Hands

So sweet and precious. Those little hands make my heart skip a beat every time I hold them!



Skies Are Grey

This was taken right outside of my house this morning buy Hubs. I think it’s a very striking photo.


She Got It From Her Momma

So, I absolutely hated that song when it came out years ago, but the beat was so catchy that the phrase has become a part of our culture.

Pretty much everyone that knows me, knows I ADORE accessories and I can honestly say that I got it from my Momma. Her collection was bananas and I wear many of her pieces daily. As I figure out what this blog is about, I thought I’d share some pics of my “Accessory(ies) of the Day.”

Let me know what you think and what information I can add to make this more interesting 


This isn’t one of Mom’s, but I do love it. From Ann Taylor Loft and I got it on sale for $12!

My Mini Me

Helping Dimples get dressed this morning made me realize how much of a big girl she has become. It made me proud and made my heart break at the same time. She doesn’t want anymore ponytails, cutesy bows or the cute little girl stuff I like to put on her! Instead, she wants to put on clothes and accessories like mine she says.

I know I have to embrace it and let her express herself and it really is fun to see her exercising her big girl taste.



And here’s what she look likes after some time at the mall with Grandma. Her own picks…


Excuse Me?!

This is what 6 year old attitude looks like. I can’t take it. Daddy needs to come back quick!




My baby created this is art class today. She was so proud of it and we were so impressed. We think it’s fabulous! I was also impressed that she learned a life lesson. See what looks like smoke coming out of one of the building? Well actually it’s spilled paint, but she was OK with that mistake, choosing to own it and add it as a positive element to her artwork.

That’s growth and a lesson that some adults could learn from. I think I’ll frame this as a forever piece for her and a reminder for us.


Naptime is Precious

I usually can’t wait for naptime! Then I can’t wait until she wakes up again so we can play.


The Tape Trick

Dimples gets up every night and comes to our bed! That coupled with the fact that baby Bright Eyes is already in there because we’re still nursing does not make for a good night’s sleep (yawn). Hence, the tape trick! I first read about it at Prudent Baby, while perusing the net.

The short story is that every time Dimples gets up and comes to our bed, we move the door to the next piece of tape when we take her back to her room. The thinking is that she won’t want to get to the point where the door is closed and will stay put. I hope this works!


Easy Bake!

So Dimples got one for Christmas and its been cookies and cake all week! It’s fun though. I remember having one at her age. At least they make them now so you can’t burn yourself.





I’m already behind on my Project 366! I didn’t post days 1 or 2, but here are the photos now.
Day 1 – Happy New Year! She’s getting so big!

Day 2 – I took Dimples and Bright Eyes to see their great-grandmother, Grandma Dorothy. She’s a spry 83 years old and still in her right mind!
