Glasses and Such

 My girls LOVE glasses.  I don't know what the fascination is, but they always pick up my reading glasses and go look at themselves in the mirror.  I started wearing glasses when I was three, it is NOT that fun, girls!  I think SK looks like Mrs. Doubtfire in these.
My best gift to myself this year:  a Pottery Barn robe from the PB outlet store in Memphis.  It is money well spent.  The girls always say, "you are so soft and cozy."  Best robe I have ever had!!!!

Thank you for the helpful tips about Caroline's hair.  I am so glad I mentioned that.

Also, the Bible cover came from a store in Camden, Ar.

It seems like the kids who don't have glasses really want them. There are a few girls at my church who are always wearing fake glasses. I've had them since I was nine and am in the "not good eyesight is a pain" camp.

She is so pretty...beautiful skin!! Amelia loves wearing my Mom's reading glasses. I may have to find some glasses without script for her soon. LOL

I have to get new glasses soon though since my 1st pair is all messed up now, will be going to a different Optometrist, the same one my parent's have gone to. I just got my 1st pair in 2010.

Wait, aren't you the one with the infamous colored robe?! I just got a new one, too...hoping the waffle style will trick me into thinking I live at the spa. :)

I think all kids like glasses. My Axle wears my Mommy's every time she comes around.

No more pink robe? Bet someone is happy about the new robe in your home.

Laurie, I would like to send you a local magazine that has the Mississippi roast in it! It is even labeled "Laurie's Mississippi roast" and mentions I got the recipe from a "blogger named Laurie." I am friends with the editor of this local quarterly magazine for area women and she needed recipes for this issue. If you would like to send me an address you can email me at and I will mail you the sweet little magazine.

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.
