Could my nieces be any cooler? I'm serious. Everything these 3 girls do is awesome. When they aren't shredding up the slopes of their back yard (a.k.a. park city) they strap on the other kind of skis and rip it up behind the boat. All at the same time. In a gorgeous setting. Love my vixens!
Whenever I am a bridesmaid I beg to be the one to make the sign and decorate the car. I am so so so in love with this signage. So.Darn.Cute. Am I right?!
I spotted this here, it is from a fab Australian wedding. The web certainly leads me to believe that everyone from Australia is fabulous. I know one person from Australia, and she is super fabulous, so I guess that confirms it.
Tagziety is that feeling (anxiety) you get when you get an email alerting you that you have been tagged. I took a formal poll and confirmed that everyone gets tagziety. The only real cure is to click the link ASAP and confirm that the photo captures a good angle/outfit/situation. If you hate it, you must get to a computer immediately and untag (tagziety is heightened in situations when you are not near a computer...the iPhone app can only do so much, I don't think it can untag, can it?). If you ask, friends all have a great tagziety story.
Here is a handy list of ways to confirm that your Thanksgiving was special:
If the turkey was bigger than the new baby at the table, it was special
If there were placecards, it was special
If there was a new baby (see first item above), it was special
If you got to "hang out" with the N's, it was special
If 3 generations of family worked together to build an "I am Thankful" tree, it was special
If 20+ family members gathered at one table, it was special.
If one of those peeps flew in from London as a surprise, it was special.
If parents of a 1 week old baby hosted the gathering (see first item on this list), it was special.
If those new parents (above) let TEN of those 20+ people spend SEVERAL nights IN THEIR HOUSE WITH THEM, they are f-ing crazy it was special.
If you got to squeeze in a run along the ocean with your super running sis in law, it was special.
If there were laughs and tears around the table as each guest shared what they were thankful for, it was special.
If you had your first taste of Pieku pies, it was special
If 4 of Annie's 5 kids were together, it was special
Did I mention there was a new baby?!?! If there was a new baby new baby new baby, it was special.
It is crazy how happy a girl can be about a remodel in her local grocery store. I am in love with the Burlingame Fred Meyer. I felt pretty lame about being so excited, until one of my best girls confessed to crying the first time she entered...that confirmed for me that it is ok to be thrilled about a grocery store remodel.
I love that they saved the old signage, makes me feel all retro going in
According to color theory, magenta is the opposite (complement) to green. Going with that, I have started to label actions as "magenta" if they are the opposite of green. Although I am proud to be a huppie (which indicates I try to be green), every now and then I am magenta. For example, it is ridiculous how far out of the way I will go to hit a starbucks drivethru.
Often I play a game along the way - counting how many regular starbucks I pass on the way to the drivethru starbucks.
My kids rock disposable diapers. If something is really stinky I put it in the disposal instead of the counter top compost bin. I am at peace with all of these actions. Being a lover of made up words, I sorta love having a label for them. Magenta.
Leaving the babies with a sitter for the night felt a little wrong. However, driving 1.5 miles and checking into The Nines with my man felt oh.so.right. What a fab way to kickoff this magical season. Bring it holidays, bring it.
