So, Cara and Brody like to bond over a little face drawing. Cara thinks it's hysterical...I fear it's going to cause ink poisoning. But I love how much they love each other so, what's a little ink poinsoning gonna hurt? FYI Pierre LaFond is a local entrepreneur in SB. Great chicken salad!
I can't tell you how many times I'm mistaken for a store/some-place-I-don't-work employee. Actually, I could but I wont. I'm not completely proud of these moments because mostly they are all times when I probably look like a Ross/Days Inn/Home Depot (in this case, I was 7 months pregnant and sitting in a chair reading a flipping book!!)/etc. employee. My mom, who works a retail position, is always asked if she owns the store she works at. She attributes this to the fact that she has fake (very classy) nails. I find it hard to not take this personal. I also find it difficult to believe that it's not prejudice thing.
However. I don't put on make-up most days, I never brush (like with a brush) my hair and I take a shower maybe every other day. Also, I dress down. Very down. Tshirt and cut-off sweat pants down in public! It's sad really. And the thing is - I clean up pretty nicely, if I do say so myself.
For 2007 I'm going to make more of an effort to look presentable when going out in public. Touch of make up. Clean hair. I might even start 'getting ready for the day' as some might say! But the biggest correction I'll make this year will be to dress in clothing that doesn't make me look like I just came from the gym. Dressing up comes with additional responsibility such as getting in shape AND spending money on clothes. It's been a long time since I've bought new, fashionable, figure-flattering clothes. I guess it's time.
I'm not really one for New Year's resolutions. More for New Year's themes. This year's theme will follow the theme of this blog (No Regrets...) and also a theme to be MY very best. And to stop being mistaken for a blankity-blank store EMPLOYEE!!
Ok - so I can't create a scrapbook page every Wednesday. I had the best of intentions (if I do say so myself) but I was out of state for 3 straight weeks and now I just don't have the space to scrapbook. I AM STILL ENTERING THE COMPETITION but can't commit to the weekly posts. I just want to send an update. Humbly.
Had an awesome time in Texas for Thanksgiving. It was so rad getting to spend 3 weeks instead of the usual 5 jam-packed days. We got to visit all of our favorite friends and spend lots of special time with Grandmama. She was so amazing. Played with him every single morning so we could sleep in (GLORIOUS) and did the bedtime routine almost every night! It was such an amzing treat - a luxury.
This Thanksgiving I am thankful for so much. My wonderful husband, our delightful and brilliant baby boy. Our town. Our church. The life that God has so graciously given us. What is this life?? How do I deserve it?? All I can do is be thankful. It's that simple.
Just a quick post to highlight our amazing visit to GUS & GAL's river house in Austin, Texas. We absolutely love this place. So relaxing and fun. Tons of land to run wild (and we do) but so pretty and peaceful. Deer roaming wild. Playing in the river bed. Skipping rocks. Playing cards. Eating like kings. And getting to spend quality time with our PapaJoe!!!
Quick note about how precious Mike and Alexa are. They are so perfect and beautiful together. The wedding was absolutely precious and can I just tell you how amazingly gorgeous the two of them were!?! As you can see they were beaming. Their love is huge. God's blessings to the happy couple. OXOXOX.
