to Izzy's fairygodmother,
my big "sister" Trish...
an amazing photographer.
I'm thinking we send this one out as our Christmas pic?
Whoops...we're missing the boys.
Yikes...maybe not the best idea.
That would raise a few eyebrows.
Do you still send cards?
I used to make them.
Now, not so much.
She claims she didn't photoshop out my extra thigh or tire,
I'm not sure I believe her.
One of the families I tutor gave me this...
I kind of shared it with the family.
They had a few portioned bags.
I had the rest.
It was soooo good.
Worth a few extra trips to the gym.
2. New glasses.
My puzzled wrinkled face shows my inability to handle technology.
"hmmm...how do I take a pic of myself?"
I did it.
Linnea was a trooper and helped me try on 50 pairs.
Buying a pair of glasses is tough.
I hate committing myself to a pair for a few years.
Plus I'm prone to losing things (thanks Dad),
and they're pricey!
I loved the last pair,
until my Dad and brother told me I looked like Sarah Palin.
I lost them.
Really, I really did.
These are a little funky, but fun,
and the best part?
I can see!
3. Soccer season is over.
Here is one of my favorite pics of the season.
That would be me huddled under my sleeping bag,
wearing a down coat and gloves,
holding my umbrella in a windy rainstorm,
and trying to stay warm with some Starbucks.
I do love watching Linnea play...
4. Some of you have been showing "what I wore on Wednesday."
I thought I'd start a new one,
"what I wore to the train."
In my bathrobe over my sweats.
Tied with a leopard scarf for a little personality.
Wearing my fake uggs that have a hole in them.
They didn't last.
I guess I need the real deal, right Santa?
I drive Mark to the train every day that he works downtown.
Ten years of crazy get-ups, crazy train stories,
and I probably could have written a book.
Lets just say I'm thankful the girls are no longer babies
and need to be wrestled into snowsuits.
5. I need to go.
To the train.
To the gym.
To the paint store.
To find some paint samples for the master bath.
To the art studio to finish some pieces.
3 days till hanging....
and I'm almost done....
If you read this,
you deserve a prize.
Leave your name and what state or country you live in.
I want to teach the kids some geography.
We'll have our first little giveaway.
