Look at Hilary and Isabella in their matching leopard outfits! I stepped out to go to the post office, and when I got back Lovie and aunt B. had snapped these adorable pictures! I think I am going to frame one for my mantle :)

a moment to spare...

Phew! Have not had a chance to blog in a while. I have had ALL my in-laws, save one ailing great-grand daddy, in town for Tyler's graduation. It has been so much fun! and I can't wait to post a picture of four generations of family. I think this is so neat! How often do you get four generations of family together at once? I plan on sitting down and posting a nice, fat, juicy post with pictures here soon.

My little pumpkin

Here is a slightly blurred photograph of my little pride and joy concentrating very hard on her jack-O-lantern feet. I love these Halloween P-J's Lovie got her from Carters, they have a mummy bear on the front that says "I want my mummy!" and on the back is a spider on his web saying "boo!" there are even teeny-tiny pumpkins on the buttons!. Isabella loves the feet and will try to grab them so she can see the jack-O-lantern face.
Today was a very nice, uneventful day. Isabella, Tyler and I hung out at the house until he had to go to work, then I called up auntie Kelli and she, Isabella and I went to Wal-mart. We had ourselves a grand ol' time, I bought Isabella the cutest lavender sun hat to wear in Hawaii and basically we just dawdled around Wal-Mart like old times looking at whatever we chose. I love nights like that when you have no schedule and all you have to do is hang out with the family.
The night just got even better! Tyler is home early. I'm going to go now and give Isabella a bath, then after she goes to sleep it's home made butterscotch pudding! served nice and warm, just the way I like it :)

my artsy fartsy friend

I'm so sad that one of my dearest friends Kelsey has been stationed in Japan with her husband. She was the first friend I made here in Virginia and she's the cutest little brunette you ever saw. Like me, she enjoys painting, decorating and pretty much anything else that involves creativity. She and I used to scope out the town for junk stores and thrift shops together. Sometimes, when we were feeling particularly shameless, We would dumpster dive the night before trash pick-up day. When people move, they throw away furniture with GREAT potential! We would bring our loot home, sand it, paint it and make it look like new. (No one goes through Antique White paint like we do.) Oh, what fun we had! Before she left for Japan she gave me a completely original acrylic painting. It is the best birthday present ever! I have it hanging in my pink kitchen where it matches perfectly, I get comments on it all the time. I think she should sell them. The picture I have taken doesn't do it justice, but you can still see how talented she is. I love this painting so much, my favorite part about it is my cat Sonnie sitting on the window sill!

My shiny new blog!

Well, after numerous phone calls for help to my mom, I finally have a blog! I'm so excited to have my own little personal space and since I'm about to embark on an unanticipated 5 year Island adventure (thanks to the Navy) I figured this would be just the ticket to keep all my not-so-nearest but very dearest afloat of what's going on my life. Here's to my first post!
