When you arrive home from an afternoon playdate in the park with your daughter only to realize that you've been wearing two completely different tennis shoes. And what's more, you simply don't care!
Fun Phone Photo Friday
After a surprise visit home to celebrate my mom's birthday and a nice lunch with the family yesterday, Gammie and Grandad accompanied Sweet Bean and me to the grocery store. (I'm not really sure what it says about where we live that we find ourselves traveling at least an hour to find a decent grocery store, but then again, that's a topic for another post!) Anyway, GG was all decked out in her birthday bubble and of course, had on her favorite, very squeaky, shoes! Mom and Sweet Bean walked the store, while Dad and I shopped like we were auditioning for Supermarket Sweep, because as any momma knows, tacking a shopping trip on top of an already long day as nap time approaches means you're living on borrowed time! No matter where Mom and Gillian Grace were in the store, we knew right where to find them. At one point, GG confiscated my buggy (that's shopping cart to all you living North of the Mason Dixon line) and set out on a shopping spree of her own.
Bless her adorable heart, that child of mine is 14 months, going on 14 years! She already thinks she's a big girl and can do big girl things. And what's more, once she gets her mind set on something, good luck trying to convince her otherwise. Stubbornness, hmmm... Now who could she have gotten that from?
I don't know about you, but I couldn't be more excited to see a week come to a close. Fall is in full swing. The weather is nearly perfect: cooler mornings, and temperate afternoons, long shadows, and plenty of blue skies and sunshine! This weekend we'll extend mom's birthday celebration just a tad with a family dinner on Sunday. But Saturday evening, you'll find us glued to the television watching my beloved Florida Gators take on the big cheese, numero uno, the Alabama Crimson Tide. And though we're greatly outnumbered by about 10,000 to one here in Dixie, we'll do our best to make the Gator Nation proud, cheering just as loudly and obnoxiously as our Roll Tide neighbors!
What are your weekend plans?
