Emily's Clever Phone Holder

Emily loves to pretend she is talking on the phone. She often pretends to call her grandparents and Uncle Justin and many times she calls Kelly and Scott. A few times she has even told us she has talked to God. This morning she was talking and she said it was Meme. She went on to say that "meme at the mall getting some cheese." When I think of the mall, I don't think of cheese. As Emily was telling me about her conversation with Meme, she closed her phone and put it in the side of her diaper and went on about her business. Those stretchy sides are not just for a good fit, they hold phones!

A few weeks ago Meredith tagged me about 6 quirks about myself. I had to think about it and limit it to six. There are so many!
1. All the blinds in the house have to be either all closed up or all closed down before I can go to bed.
2. I always get the same thing each time at all the resturants we go to. Once I find a good item on the menu, I stick with it!
3. I HAVE to wash my hands when I come home from somewhere.
4. I LOVE CHIPS AND SALSA! I hate to say this, but when it comes to the table I want no interruptions as I eat it for about 5 minutes. No conversation or waiters or anything. I just need a moment with the salsa.
5. I always smell of things. Like if someone gives me a gift I smell of it(not in front of them). I like to see what their house smells like. Tells you a lot about someone!
6. I HAVE to lock the doors the second I get in the car.

I love chips and salsa and will have that sometimes for dinner. Have you ever tried Ranch dressing with Chili's salsa and chips!!

wow...i relate to so many of those! sticking to one thing on the menu, washing my hands when i get home, and the chips and salsa. :0)
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I must confess that I have read your blog before but never left a comment. You have two very beautiful daughters! And while I'm confessing...a few of the quirks on your list would also be mine as well (especially the washing the hands after I've been somewhere)! (:

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
