Catch ya Later

I don't really have any desire to blog lately.  Maybe its just this crazy busy time of year, or maybe I'm over it.  I don't know.  But for now, I'm signing off.  Maybe I'll catch ya later.

Dingos and Dalmations and White Queens and Punk Rock Chicks

Sometimes it seems like my kids are growing up too fast - changing too quickly.  It breaks my heart.  But then I took our Halloween pictures this year and realized, a year later - Violet is still the crazy little doggy she was last year, and Lucy is still a fierce beauty. 

These two are my very favorite part of each and every day.

Bats, BBQs and Boobs

So I don't have anything to blog about, but that frozen image of me that Youtube has decided to use for my duet with Lucy is embarrassing and I need to move that post on down to the next page.  So that means I need to start blogging.

Its October and we have bats:
I used the Instagram app to make this picture look creepy.  It totally worked, no?

Last weekend we had our very first BBQ of the year.
(actually our very first BBQ on Lucy Ave....which we have lived here for 4 years)
Turns out, if you wait long enough - someone will just give you a grill.  Boo-Yah!  We just saved $500!  
(is that even how you spell Boo-Yah?)

We made chicken and steak kabobs and rice and opened a can of baked beans.
It was beautiful and delicious.

Have you noticed in the two videos of me and Lucy singing how my face is a completely different shape now than it was 3 years ago?  Its weird.  That's what losing 40 lbs will do I guess.

Also, the other thing that losing 40 lbs will do:
Jacob used to tell me "Your boobs are Amazing"
and now he says:
"Your boobs are cute"

Oh well.  I like cute.

Lucy Land

I'm obviously having a hard time blogging lately.  But Lucy isn't!  She started a blog yesterday and so far, this is what she's written.

I love that she calls them Back Round Dancers instead of Background Dancers.  I don't think I'll correct her.  Its too cute.  Also, Pump Rock!  Hahahaha.  This is going to be fun!

Check it out! 

And leave her a comment.  She'll love that!

Duet #2 - 3 years later

Remember this?
Lucy was 5 when we did this video.  She has been asking me for a couple of years now if we could do it again since now she can actually sing all the words. 

 We finally did it this morning.  She had been up for about 20 minutes getting ready for school.  I had been up for about 5 and still had my morning frog voice.
(Plus, I'm really trying hard not to steal the spotlight this time.  Its hard for me to not sing loudly...but I wanted Lucy to be able to be heard this time!)
I can't believe how big and mature and grown up Lucy is.  The difference in her in these two videos is huge, and it makes me just a little bit sad. 

I love this girl!

The rules are - there are no rules!

I'm talking about fashion rules.  We've all heard the rule about no white pants after Labor day, but I'm not listening.  I have been on the hunt for a good pair of white jeans all summer and whaddya know - I found some!  Who cares if you're not supposed to wear white pants after Labor day.  Labor day is just around the corner but I plan to be wearing these sweet pants all winter long.

I actually got two pairs of sweet white pants.  But I can only wear one at a time so for now you just get to see one pair.  And you can't really tell in this picture, but these pants are really bell-bottomy.  I love them.

(oh, and both pants were on super clearance at Gap.  These were like $7, and my other sweet pair were like $12)  That's how I could afford two pairs.

Also, I haven't been blogging because my computer is on the caputs and I can't download any pictures from my camera to my computer and I can't write a blog post without pictures.  Tammy saved the day today and took a picture of me with my iphone so that I could blog.  Thank God!  (and thank Tammy)

I'm fresh than a mu-what?

A friend of mine posted this on facebook a couple of weeks ago - and I've watched it a million times since.  Its so great.  This girl, Amy, is so entertaining.  I could watch her all day.  I'm smiling just thinking about watching this video.
(as well as all of their other youtube videos - but this one is definitely the best)
