Yeah, I know. I totally still owe you a picture of May’s dress, but i don’t have one yet so BEAR WITH ME.

Without further adieu….


Sorry about the awkward pose.

Yeah. I’m laying down. Probably not the best shot to show off the best dress of the three I have, but it’s the only photo I have at this point. DEAL. Anyway, this dress is from Anthropologie and I LOVE IT WITH ALL MY HEART. I would wear it every day if I could. I tried finding it on their website, but the hubs bought this for me all the way back in April while we were in Vegas and I don’t know if they have it anymore. Plus, when I went to their site to find it I got really REALLY distracted by their pretty clothes and suddenly I had $400 worth of stuff in my cart and my credit card in my hand. I stopped myself. Somehow. But yes, I LOVE THIS DRESS. Maybe someday I’ll get a photo where I’m standing. In the meantime, enjoy my Miss America smile and my bangs growing out into MY FACE.



Here I am contemplating how on God’s green earth I found an awesome dress WITH POCKETS! AT TARGET! This is now my second favorite dress. Mostly because of the pockets. But also? Because it was like, $20. What did we do without Target, people? See those sunglasses? TARGET. Boo-to-the-YEAH.

Hey y’all! I’m back and have many stories to tell. In the meantime, enjoy the recap of Twitter posts I had while I was gone. (A better post with thoughts lasting longer than 140 words is forthcoming. Old Bessie (aka our laptop) is totally on it’s last legs, so my work compy and my phone are my only posting options. SO not cool.)

Off to the airport in futuristic light rail fashion. On my way to Satan’s Pants AKA Phoenix. #satanspants 3:25 PM Jun 10th via twidroid

My dearest Lil’ Abbers,

I’m so sorry this month-day announcement is late. We spent the weekend with your grandparents and all of momma’s family and things got busy, to say the least.

You’re a learning machine, my sweet. You’re sitting like a champ, and have mastered the bounce-dance, as well as what I assume is the no-no dance, where you shake your head left and right. You are such a joy and never cease to make us laugh (even if making you laugh is the hardest thing EVAR).

You had your first baby play date last weekend. It went…okay. You had a few meltdowns, but between teething, about 20 new faces and meeting another baby your age for only the second time…I imagine it was quite overwhelming.

People never stop commenting on how beautiful you are. And I couldn’t agree more.

I love you so so very much,


A voice only a dog could hear.

Maybe not. You be the judge.

But before I give a longer description to the cuteness that is my Abbers “dancing” in a laundry basket, I’ll say this: Thursday I started a post that was going to be all serious and a topic that I’ve been thinking about a lot lately…and I just didn’t know where to go with it so I bailed. I still want to publish it, but I don’t know.

Anyway – the weekend was spend with friends visiting from Milwaukee and TWELVE INNINGS OF BASEBALL. And lots and lots of heat. And yardwork. And awesomeness.

Anyway, without further adieu – Abbers and her dancing skillz.

Yeah, I don’t totally believe my voice sounds like that, but apparently it does. If this video has taught me anything it’s that I need to start using my “adult” voice at home more. And to look into being voice talent for cartoons.
