Your favorite color is pink, you call your dresses "princess", and you are totally obsessed with shoes. All the makings of a girly girl, yes? Well, you also love wearing your brother's cowboy boots, run around like a maniac, and adore getting dirty. For example, while camping you laid down on your belly, made a dirt angel, and then kissed the dirt! So much for keeping you clean! I love you, my sweet, crazy, dirt-lovin', girly girl!
I hope you join in! :)

~I'm getting over a two week funk. No motivation for anything. Not sleeping until after 2:00 in the morning kind of does that to a person. I'm doing better now but I'm a bit overwhelmed by the hot mess my house has become. Yikes! Hopefully, my brain will let go of some bad images and let me sleep normally again. I've got to get back to a normal schedule.

But, in the end, the princess won out so I could make this cute little book for Audrey.
And, this sweet little birthday card for one of Audrey's little friends.
If you'd like to get your hands on some cute Greeting Farm stamps, head on over to A Walk Down Memory Lane before the end of the month and you can pick them up for 25% off!!! (American Crafts is 25% off, too!)
Thanks for stoppin' by! :)

Finally, this picture of Miss Thing is one of my new favorites of her. She busted out the over-the-shoulder pose all on her own. Love that two year old 'tude!

Today I hoped that I could get everything on my to-do list done. \
Today I dreamed of a happy future for both my kids.
Today I forgot to work out. Okay, I didn't forget but I didn't get it fit in.
Today I heard my my kiddos giggling and laughing and playing so wonderfully together.
Today I read the last few pages of a trilogy that I started yesterday.
Today I watched Project Runway!
Today I broke nothing! Go, clumsy me! (Seriously, I'm pretty clumsy!)
Today I said Mickey, let's interview you!
Today I believed that I might be able to run a half marathon this year.
Today I felt tired this morning and so I slept in.
Today I wondered if I'd ever reach my weight loss goal.
Today I bought two Cars posters off Amazon for Little Man's upcoming birthday.
Today I cleaned the kitchen after cooking 20lbs of ground beef.
Today I was me.

~Papa Maow came over for a hair cut and to take the kids down to the "cricket". They love going down to the creek with him and I love that I got them to wear their boots this time. Mickey got one of his stuck in the mud and had to take it off to get it out!
~I'm procrastinating doing my Pilates, still a little sore from yesterday's re-introduction to Jillian and her 30 Day Shred.
~I'm not allowing myself to play with my new 10-24 lens and Lightroom until I do it. It's what I bought with my garage sale/Coach purse sale/wedding shoot money. I agonized over what lens to get and ultimately decided to round out my focal range instead of upgrading my long zoom or getting a macro lens or even getting a flash. Hoping I made the right choice. I'm feeling pretty good about my Lightroom purchase as the time involved in processing lots of photos is what stops me from processing them most of the time. Can't wait to get it on my computer!
~I'm planning out a visual reminder for this month's goal...90 miles and 10 lbs!!!
~I've got to get my to do lists all together and accessible. Yesterday, I felt like I had a bunch of stuff I should be doing and couldn't remember what. I need a central location for my to do list.
~The kids are having a pretty good day together. Only one time out so far. I'm really proud of Audrey, I told her to go into her room for time out...and she went! (Kind of proud of my parenting lately, too. A lot less yelling!)
~Got my Pilates in!
~Went to pizza with my SIL and our families and found out that my niece got engaged!!! <3
~Made a THREE PAGE to-do list! Yikes!
~Played a little with my new lens. Oh, I like it! It's definitely not an everyday lens but I can see lots of times when it will be awesome... eg, you'll be seeing a lot more landscapes from me!
~Going to bed by 11 tonight so I can get my walk in before it gets too hot. It's going to be a hot one tomorrow. :)
