Sea Dogs!

Friday afternoon began Hubby's vacation and we kicked things off right with a trip to a baseball game!!!

If you look WAY out underneath the Key bank sign  you'll see Iz and Hubby walking around the ball field before the game!!!

Slugger led them around the field.

Here they come!

Iz HAD to have a foam finger to root for the home team!

Posing for a quick pic on the way out....adorable!

Mimi Sleeps Over...Again :)

SnL had a wedding to go to last weekend so we were lucky enough to get this cutie overnight to be silly with.

Just in case you didn't notice the fancy shoes in the above picture...

Lest Mimi dress up alone, Iz was there to be her normal princess-ey self :)

A little rock and roll...

...a little silliness...

...then the night was nicely rounded off with (what else?) ICE CREAM! :)

Wordless Wednesday: Play Ball!

Monday, May 23, 2011

Playdate with Mimi

Auntie D and Mimi came over to hang out (and go out to lunch!) last Wednesday.

As Mimi gets older these girls just have more and more fun together :)

More fun with Mimi came later in the week. We just can't get enough of that girl!!!!

34 Things....Final Update

1. Get a new tattoo.
Nope. Mainly because I can't make up my mind about what I want!!!!!! Ideas anyone???

2. Get a pedicure.
Nope again. Why? It's hard to get a pedi when you always have a little girl in tow. Maybe this year I'll bring her along and we'll both get one :)

3. Go camping.
Yes! Remember?

4. Go on vacation with Hubby and Iz.
Yes! Three days in Boston :)

5. Talk Hubby into letting us get a couple kittens.
One kitten was all he agreed on and thanks goodness...ONE is enough!

Ugh! Let's not talk about this one, okay.

See #6

Well, we went out for our anniversary :)

14. Get a Wii.

15. Walk more.

16. Stop biting my nails!!!

18. Watch less tv (and get Iz to do the same).
I plead the fifth....

30. Take a train ride in N. Conway with Iz & Hubby.

31. Read Jane Austen's books.
*groan* No, but I did download her entire written works onto my Kindle so there's still hope!

32. Reread "The Chronicles of Narnia"...in the RIGHT order this time!

33. Downsize...in more ways than one!
Again, a work in progress....

34. Drink less iced coffee. HA! Kidding! I just couldn't think of anything else :)
*giggle*giggle* Not a chance!

Happy Birthday to Me :)

Yesterday was my birthday and Hubby came through and got me exactly what I wanted!

(um, yeah, that's not MY hand!)

I spent the day relaxing, playing with my Kindle, playing with Isabella and enjoying having the day off. Hubby did all the cooking and the dishes and I didn't have to lift a finger. It was wonderful :)

Remember that last year I made a list of things I wanted to do before I turned 35 (yipe!). I wasn't as good about updating it as I would like to be and not all the things got checked off but I will be dragging the list out one final time and posting one final update later this week :)

Happy Monday All!!!

Preschool Graduation was this morning. It was adorable. I (surprisingly enough) did NOT cry though it was close at times! They marched in to Pomp and Circumstance, they introduced themselves and said what they wanted to be when they grew up (Iz, naturally, wants to be a PRINCESS) , they sang and they received awards and diplomas. Iz received the "Great Listener" award. That further fueled my thought that the Iz I dropped off at school three days a week is not the same Iz that lives with us :) Then we had cake and I took a whole heaping mess of pictures which, due to bad lighting, are mostly junk :(

It was wonderful though. Grammie and Bumpy made the long haul down and Nannie came as well and then we all went to lunch after to celebrate.

Anyhoo, so that's it. School is done. Our Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays are now wierdly wide open for the next few months. We still have tee ball and ballet to keep us busy for a while but then....um....I don't know what we'll do with all our free time....I'm sure we'll come up with something!

P.S. 2 more days 'til MY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Happy Mother's Day!

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new.  


Friday, May 6, 2011


The weather worked in our favor (though it was COLD!) and Iz got to go to her first tee ball practice!!! :)

Running bases to keep warm before practice began.

Swing!...and a miss :(

That's a hit!

Running to 1st base!

When we got home she had to immediately try on her new uniform and hasn't taken her hat off yet!

My adorable number 9!

Bike Ride!

We were lucky enough yesterday to get a beautiful day and took the chance to bring Iz and her bike down to the school for her first ride of the year :)

We quickly learned two things. 1) She outgrew her bike over the winter and 2) Her ability to ride a bike leaves a lot to be desired (she crashed 3 times and that's WITH training wheels!). I know she'll get it sooner or later. Love that girl!

A little craziness from Hubby rounds thing out :)
