sweet daisy

Monday, July 30th, 2007

Real quick as I have a nice long post to type up about our weekend. I wanted to share an outfit I had made from a seller on eBay. I had to have it! I’m planning to make coordinating pants and then layering a long sleeve shirt under so it gets wear this fall and […]

funny funny

Why listening in on my children makes me smile.
Daisy: Tabitha, is this ‘I love you?’ [making the gesture with her hand]
Tabitha: No, that’s ‘Rock and Roll.’ You’ll learn about that later.
Daisy: Knock-knock
Tabitha: Who’s there?
Daisy: Lady
Tabitha: Lady who?
Daisy: Frickin stop already!

sweet memories

I took loads of pictures of Daisy in a rose garden yesterday, but the pic above is my favorite even though there isn’t a rose in sight.
When I was child, I visited my Great-Grandma Daisy quite frequently. She lived in West Los Angeles in a triplex that her husband (my Great-Grandfather, but he died […]

Butterfly, butterfly, fly, fly away

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

Daisy and I visited the Butterfly Pavilion yesterday while Tabitha was in a class. Turns out her class went to the pavilion as well. I wish I had known they would be there because I would have hung around and taken pictures of Tabitha with the butterflies. I’ve gone almost every year for the last […]

summer rain

Monday, July 23rd, 2007

We’ve got a hot rain going on right now and Daisy has put on a fuzzy, slipper boot and one croc and declared she is ready to go out into the rain. Mind you, she has not pants on, but that is just a mere detail in the mind of a two year old.
We […]

usual Friday

Saturday, July 21st, 2007

We had Park Day yesterday morning and though we did not have a good turn-out, we did have a good time. Those of us who were there discussed possible field trips for the group after the summer heat is over (though we’re having a fairly mild summer). When we got home I decided to keep […]

this is how it works in my area

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Another Girl Scout day camp down the drain. The original time was 5:30pm and it was to last 3 hours. Odd, but I figured they were trying to work with all the working moms in the area. Today I get a confirmation email and it’s been changed to 10am for five hours and at least […]

Sew, what’s new?

Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

I’ve finished a pair of white capris for Tabitha that are part of a Disney outfit. Since they don’t have the top yet, I won’t post them until later (need to order the right material for the top). I’ve also finished a Halloween skirt for Tabitha, but don’t care for how it turned out and […]

shirt

Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

I had two different people ask about the shirt I wanted at Kitson. I didn’t get it but that’s because I bought one at Target the night before. For me, I didn’t care about the brand, it was the “Little Miss” that I wanted. I had bought Tabitha a Little Miss Sunshine shirt at Target […]

Well, we did it

Saturday, July 14th, 2007

We left the house at 11 this morning and fought horrific traffic and got to Kitson a bit after noon. Chris got in the block long and around the corner line while Tabitha and I went inside to make the required purchase of the soundtrack and jewelry (she chose a necklace with a silver hairspray […]

Look what I did!!

I’m so damn proud of myself

decision time

Thursday, July 12th, 2007

So if I take Miss Tabitha out to Kitson Boutique Saturday, and purchase the Hairspray Soundtrack and Hairspray jewelry (novelty) she will receive a wristband to wait in line for the chance to meet a few stars from the movie including Zac Ephron. *sigh How can I not? I don’t know. Beverly Hills on a […]

Time for a post

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

So, last I posted, summer was just starting. We’ve been having fun so far. Chris went to Vegas with his dad and brother for Father’s Day so the girls and I, along with my MIL, went out for a girls’ day and had pedicures, lunch and some shopping. I hate being alone at night though […]
