Just a fun photo shoot.
It had been 6 months since Emmy's last photo's were taken.
Em loves to have her pictures taken and
She never takes a bad picture!
Which makes things more expensive for mommy and daddy!
The photographers have always captured Emersyn's personality and expressions so well.
These are the proofs...
Which is your favorite?

The other reason for the photo shoot.....

Lunden's "Bestest Bester Friend Forever or BBFF" Carly
made her annual summer visit.
We enjoyed having her here for a 3 week visit.
We miss you Carly!!
Back to Emmy....

Goin' southern on ya

Lunden's friend, Carly has been visiting us for 3 weeks from So. Cal.
One of Carly's requests was to eat breakfast at
I have only been there 2 times.
It really is a "white trash" kinda place.
Sorry, but it just is.
The people are friendly and it's just one of those places
you have to eat at, at least once when in the south.
Still, the food is really good.
They have the best waffles (duh) and even ones with
pe-cans in them
( did you hear my southern accent?)
Today, Carly had to fly home but we took her there for breakfast....
We miss you already Carly!!!!

{Like two peas in a pod, they are}

{Aint she purdy?}

{Carly's PE-can waffle and grit's over thar}

{Give that baby some gravy!}

{This here wafflle aint like nuthin' else}

{Kiss my grit's}
Sorry...the southern accent just sort of came out.

Seasons changing

So, two days ago while driving the back roads home
I saw a tree that's leaves were already turning fall colors. No! Already?
Was I seeing thing's right? Of course, I didn't have my camera.
Today, while driving home from the mall I saw two maple trees
( usually the first to change around here).
This time I did have my camera but I was driving.
I will take a picture tomorrow so I can show you.
Hopefully, it means an early fall and cooler times ahead!
Just thought I would share...
P.S. Michael's craft store has Halloween decor already!

Another 1st

Emersyn went to her 1st movie...
The Hannah Montana movie
The movie is coming out on dvd next month so the ONLY place to see it is at this
old, kinda nasty dollar theater.Let's call it...vintage. That sounds nicer.
Still, it was fun to watch her experience a movie and she loves Hannah Montana.
She did really well considering she is 18 months.

She did try to stick her hand in the popcorn bag a few times
but Mommy says "no" to that...
choking hazard still.
So, she had her hand in her gold fish bag. It was cute.
She would only sit still/quiet with Lunden.
Lunden was a trooper to sit with Emmy on her lap the entire movie.
Lunden called it " sisterly looooove".

The boy's wanted to use their very own money from their wallets, for a treat.
We didn't realize everything at this theater was "cash only"
so, thankfully, Carsen had $20 from the 'Tooth Fairy'!
Logan found $3 in his shorts pocket.
Carsen got Sour Patch kid's and Logan got plain M&M's.
It was cute watching them pay.
{Carsen dancing to the music while the credits rolled}

{Logan loved the movie}
We can't wait for the movie to come out on dvd. If you haven't seen it you need to!

I was at one of my favorite blog's and I noticed these precious shoes on this little girls feet.

Let me be your Avon Representative

I am now an Avon Representative
I'm making money and get to meet a lot of people along the way.

Some, think they have to give up their favorite department store products.

Not so!

I am a HUGE Clinique, MAC and Smash box user!
Avon has fabulous eye and facial creams.
They seriously give other brands a run for their money!

I have chosen Avon Skin-So-Soft as
Today's favorite product

This product is the best out there. My kid's pediatrician always tells me to be certain to use sunscreen on the kids as well as bug spray that is DEET free. This is the product to use!
Perfect combination of sunscreen and DEET free bug repellent.

( If you don't live in the south you have no idea what the bug situation is like here!!!)

It is pediatrician and dermatologist tested.

Nothing works better!!

Let me be your representative.

Not going to let another moment pass...

Before I mention that .....

Emersyn May has turned 18 months old as of last Friday!
She is officially 1 1/2 years old.

I know it sounds cliche' but it seems like only yesterday
that I was dreaming of getting pregnant with her
and being pregnant with her
and holding a 9 pound newborn.

Where does the time go?!

The summer is overrated

"Don't you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address"
This above quote is from the movie:
'You've got mail'
This movie get's me in the mood for fall. It just does.
I know that summer isn't quite over
and I don't want the kid's to start school JUST yet


What is it about Fall that makes me want to buy school supplies?
I get SO excited when I see all of the supplies at Target!!


I think I get even more excited to see all the fall clothing and thing's with plaid on them and jacket's waiting to be plucked of the hangers before the weather is even cold enough to wear them.
Don't forget all the cute boots. Oh, the boots!

Oh, to smell the essence of pumpkin spice candles, day's getting shorter, the night's getting chilly and longer, gorgeous fall colors on the trees....

The yearning begins within me to make homemade bread, soups and zuchini bread.

These are the thing's that I love about summer ending.

For those of us with kid's or those of us who know a thing or two about fashion

The summer clothing is being marked down and all of the new fall styles are IN STORES NOW.

I won't bore you with all my shopping obsessions but I thought these thing's were pretty darn cute!
{My newest obsession*again* Crewcuts for kid's @ JCrew }
{I ordered these for Emersyn here}
Well, enjoy the rest of your summer. I guess for me summer wasn't much of a summer so I am excited for all the bounties that the Fall bring's!
Until next time....
