I heart Family

Today was a good day.  Today I got to see my parents who {whom?} I haven’t seen in 5 or 6 months.  I love my parents.  My mom is my best friend.  It is so good to have them here and I love that my mom brought American sweets, and tons of magazines, and stuff for crafting projects!!  So beeee sure to stay tuned for some stuff in the future, I can’t stinkin’ wait!

But since she just got here and I have spent the last 3 or four days cleaning and organizing my house I don’t really have anything interesting at the moment.  I do, however, have this outfit.  It was perfect for running around the house, cleaning, quick trip to the park, and picking up my parents.  A serious bummer was that I had a totally cute necklace to go with it, but when I was cleaning this morning, my hand got caught on it and IT BROKE.  Ugh. Like the biggest bummer ever, had a little meltdown, a few tears, a little pouty session, almost giving up on any fashion ever, while my awesome husband sits there trying to fix it {even though he knows I am being ridiculous} and then I was back at it. 

Once again, my 3-year-old took these.  I need to upgrade because he is getting pretty tired of it all.  That is why the one above to the left is blurry on the bottom.  I had to sit it on a car and take it because he was done.
Buuuut because my mommy is in town, she has an awesome camera! Maybe I can snag some pics from that one…. hhmmm
I thought I would throw in there a pic of our little Frenchie home.  You know the house where you are like ‘who lives there??’  Ya.  We live there.
And I thought I would put these pics of my makeup I did today that took me all of 10 minutes, foundation and all.  I have a crooked smile.  I am just noticing this with all these pictures of myself.  Which I need to delete from my computer.  If someone looked on my computer they would think I was sooooo vain.  But I’m not.  I swear. 
Oh, and I forgot to mention!  My favorite cousin {sssshhhh, don’t tell!} is here visiting with her mom!  So I have my parents, my aunt, and my cousin!  Whoop whoop!  She is super cute and fashionable and I am thinking maybe I could snag some pics of her this weekend…

Chocolate Chip Cookies and Warm Weather

I have two wonderful things to share with you.  One, today was like 70 degrees.  It was beautiful!  I am loving it.  I wore a skirt two days in a row and it was awesome.  Sorry for the rest of France for my super white legs, but hey, they like […]

Little bit about me…

How would people describe your personality? (If they could only use ONE word.) Are they right? Okay, I just asked my husband. He took a sec, looked up and said “complicated.” LOL I would have to agree.What celebrity/celebrities would create a “Star-Struck” feeling if you saw them in real life?I […]

And so it begins…

I am starting my 30×30 today. Today, folks.  I am a little nervous. I must be honest.  I had a tough time picking what I would want in the 30 because I don’t know what I might feel like in three weeks or something.  But it is going to be […]

I give myself permission!

I saw this on Eisy Morgan, one of my favorite places to stop by, and I thought that it fit me perfectly.  I became a mom, got married, and moved to France for the first time (not speaking French at this time) all in one year.  It was a hard […]

I spent the day today in a small town in France called Annecy.  I have seen quite a few French towns that were ‘cute’ but this was just typic.  Old time, typical, beautiful French.  It was incredible.  And being as awesome as I am, I totally forgot my camera.  Like […]
