Something wild, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

Something wild, something new, something borrowed, something blue.

Yeah!  This dress has it all.  Well, not the borrowed.  I borrowed the hair candy from my daughter.

Nuff said.

While putting on this dress today I thought about how the butterflies represented my life as a mother.  You may ask what does a butterfly and a mother have in common? Change!

Before I became a mother I was consumed with, "self" well my husband and myself.  My decisions, my finances, my work schedule, my thinking, my words, err' thang!  However, once I had children like the butterfly I went through a period of change.  My life transformed into a beautiful creature ready to awe the world. Blogger's out there with children have you changed?

Long Distant Shots!

Hi y'all.

Sorry for the long hiatus, but I have been unable to take pictures due to a nasty little fever blister on my lip (Not!  That bad boy was huge!)

Argggh!  I hate those things.  I actually put on pretty frocks and combed my hair but getting in front of a camera was a different story.  Well, it is much better therefore, I decided to take some long distant camera shots.  And, as luck would have it, I donned my favorite 1950's style retro glam BABY GOT BACK house ma'am dress for the occasion.  

This dress just screams target practice with the all over bright dot print.  I just hope the neighbor's does not feel like taking any long distant shots today!

A Tight Situation....

I adore tights... Colorful, whimsical, nude.... All kinds!  My husband HATES them.  Last night we attended my eldest twin first band concert.  He plays the flute.  It was a concert put on by the high school and they invited several elementary schools.  The concert began at 7:15 (really at 7:45).... First, the High School band played several pieces, then the advanced band, followed by the middle school band, then the elementary band.

The gym was hot, crowded, and the children were tired.  My kiddos are use to a bedtime, which put us in a tight situation.  I wondered, "Why did the elementary students go last?"  I guess crowd control.

Just like the tights that my husband hates some situations you can control (I chose not to wear the tights) and some you cannot.  You just have to make the best out of what you are given.

Remember, "You can't always change the circumstances but you have the power to change you attitude surrounding the circumstances."
