Moss Certainly!

Sam Edelman, I don't know you, but I want these shoes.  There was a little discussion regarding comfort with my shopping partners, but I can just see that these would feel great.  I know uncomfortable heels, and I know these are different.  Moss suede and black leather with a stacked leather heel???  Call me!!!

Fast Forward Future Shot

Blast from the future: I think I can see what Romes is gonna look like as a teenager...

Much Belated Bday Commentary

This is also a first day of K post (7/25/11). Here's a girl who's ready for K! She also had the first birthday of the year in her class (8/2/11).  If Laney continues in Chandler schools, she will probably ace that honor in future years as well.  She had cupcakes to share -- what a day!  On Day 1, I liked the part where she said "bye Mom, bye Dad" -- she wanted us to get out of that room so she could start her first day of school.

Growing Up G!

I have a lot for which to thank my parents:
1) work ethic (we had to do a ton of chores, but looking back, they were reasonable. We stacked wood, we bucked hay, and we did the dishes).
2) straight teeth -- I spent a few years in braces and thank the universe for that!
3) college expectations -- in our family, you went to the University of Idaho and you liked it. And I loved it!

I talked to an old friend tonight who saw the ups and downs of my early years. I have to say, it made me the strong (and zany) person I am today.

Happy Birthday to Romes!

Or, more accurately, Roman, his given name. He is amazing and my treasure.  They don't make them better than this!  Love my son!

One for my 22 Girls!

On our flight to BOI today, the only three seats together were Row 22...(the last row) but due to the great karma of this number, of course, we had a great time!

Happy 75th Dad!

We had the best talk this morning! Talking to my dad reminds me that "the universe will provide." Not because that's what he says, but because that's how he lives -- don't worry so much, things will work out pretty well in the end.  And that you may not always get everything you want but you get pretty much what you need.
