It's Another Friday!

Why, oh why do they take so long to get here? And are gone so quickly!! Today was insanely busy at work and I'm finally catching my breath and getting a few minutes to catch up on some of my favorite blogs!

Have any of you seen Toy Story Three? Can you quote the first 5 to 7 minutes of it? I can now! My 3-year old loves watching Bad Potato Head & Evil Porkchop, as he calls them. We have the movie on the Ipad and he now knows how to work that sucker. The entire trip to New Orleans, I listened to the first part of that movie over. And over. And over again.  I hope he finds another favorite movie soon!

Yesterday, I was trying to discreetly get a few outfit pictures while my neighbor was outside welding. Do you want to know what wandered into our yard? A tiny baby bird! It turns out that it was one of our neighbor's baby game hens.  Yeah, our neighbor raises game hens and welds in the front yard. Don't ask! Anyways, the little bird was so cute that I just had to get a picture.


Here are the shots I managed to get of my outfit without my neighbor ever even knowing what was going on. Okay, I was totally hiding behind our shrubs, but whatever. =)


Dress: My awesome sister's!
Cardi: Target
Necklace: Teething Bling (Gift from my mom)
Nude wedges: 6pm.com
Ring & "bracelets": Premier Design Jewelry
Flower hair clip: Flapper Fashions

This bracelet is actually a necklace. I was at a loss of which bracelets to wear and this necklace was just sitting on the counter as I was leaving the house, so I wrapped around my arm a few times and . . . voila! A new bracelet! =)

I work four 10-hour days so I have Fridays off with my daughter (our Mommy Days!) and they do seem to go by quickly! Especially when I know I have to bring her back to her dad soon.

I love that dress and the pop of color in your hair! the idea with the necklace/bracelet is GENIUS, I love it!

Your super stealth picture taking is cracking me up. I love that you hid behind the landscaping to avoid detection :)

We just introduced the iPad to our house this week, and we have the new Shrek on it...and B has already figured out that it is awesome. She's still a little iffy on how it works, but that doesn't stop her from hitting the screen a zillion times until she gets what she wants. Kids are so spoiled these days!

Lol! I can see it now: "A welder, A Birdie, and A Blogger"...a great story headline about your street!
Regardless, the pics turned out great, and because you are working your sister's dress so fiercely...I think you should claim it as your own! ;)
