Hurry Up Summer

My parents recently got a lake house at Grand Lake. To say I am excited would be a understatement. A word doesn't describe my excitement for this summer that is approaching. So what does a girl do when she is excited? Shop til' she drops, naturally.

This evening I purchased a swimmy suit. Scary. I liked this one from J Crew because it was cute but still provided the coverage needed for this Mom. I would have laughed at someone who told me in high school that in ten years from now the two key words I would look for in a swim suit was: FULL COVERAGE.

Me and the little bit will need some boat shoes of course...

Lastly, I am on a hunt for new sunglasses. I am highly debating prescription sunglasses but if I do not go that route my top runner for the moment are these Tom sunglasses. I like their vintage feel but I really like they provide sight to someone in need. One for One.

Angie Smangie

I have never been a big fan of Angelina Jolie and this Oscar night sealed the deal. The girl needs to spend a month at the White House chub club and stop taking herself so damn serious.

 I mean the pose behind the mic..... get.over.yourself.

What is better than one leg you ask?

Two legs!

Music Monday

Ray LaMontagne. Need I say more? I can listen to him over and over and never get tired of his beautiful voice and lyrics. So on this pretty Monday I bring you the song "Trouble" by my friend Ray.

Happy Monday.

Baby Be Cray Cray

This baby be cray cray. Chlo my low and yours truly do our best to be top dog siblings but this has just gone too far. Today Charlie played dress up in her room for nearly a damn hour and we were the victims. She kept saying things like "work it gurl" and "you are hot". Sick. What really chaps my buns is my Mom didn't say a word because it kept the brat busy. Doesn't my Mom realize it is events just like this that drives Chlo to drink and me to smoke? She is practically begging us to relapse. As we speak Chlo is snookered and on hold with PETA. And me, you don't want to know what I am doing right now.

Victim #1: Harold Eugene

Please Charlie. Don't make me. I don't want to "work" it.

I am too mortified to look

Cowboy Casanova

Does this make my bum look big?

I have to admit; I dig this hat.

OH NO!!! Not the sunglasses. Please not the sunglasses!

The sunglasses

Chlo my low was the grand finale and she did not disappoint. But does she ever?


Where Did The Time Go?

Mother's Day Out Tid Bits

Charlotte has been going to MDO for several months now so I am beginning to learn the ropes. I am sure these tips are old news to most Mommas but I thought I would pass them along to some of the new Moms like myself.

I am digging the Pottery Barn Kids Spencer Bento Box seen here:

I love it because you can put everything you need for your little bit's lunch all in one place. No more sandwich bags or multiple tupperware. Here is Charlotte's lunch I packed today:

The best part is the box fits right into her lunch bag:


Lastly, I ordered labels for her sippy cups at www.inchbug.com. These are great! They are dishwasher safe and very durable. You can purchase them here:



Who doesn't like Chevron? Well I do anyways so here are some cute chevron iPhone wallpapers for your phone I saw on a blog. Pick your favorite and save it to your computer and you are ready to go.

Music Monday

I love music, Josh loves music, my family loves music, and believe or not our Charlie girl even loves music already. So this brings me to Music Monday on my blog. Each Monday I am going to post a song on my blog for my few readers to enjoy.

My first song is Send Me On My Way by Rusted Root. I have loved this song since high school and way before it was in the movie Ice Age. I am sure my friends are rolling their eyes reading this because they have heard this one too many times. It never fails to get me in a good mood and dance a little jiggy. If I had the daunting task to pick my very favorite song ever, yes this would be it. I guess I am a hippie at heart.

THE Mighty Oakes

I have blogged about the miracle Oakes before and I know a lot of my friends are concerned with him and interested in his story. I wanted to share his Mother's recent blog post because well it is nothing short of amazing. It will make you smile, cry, laugh, and thank God. I am also going to direct you to their foundation page that their family has started if you wanted to learn more about that or donate.

Please continue to pray for sweet Oakes and his family.

Pick Me

Poor CoCo will do just about anything to get Charlotte to play with her. 

To My Angel Charlotte, Love CoCo

It is no secret I have struggled with alcohol, porn, and smoking in my 8 years of existence. I will be a good girl and then a fall off the wagon in a moment of weakness. I have no excuse but low self esteem. Then a year ago a chubby angel named Charlotte Lillian entered my life for no other reason but to bring me back from the dark side. Charlie constantly tells me how pretty I am and that my lack of teeth makes me unique and who I am. I love her for that. My support group encouraged me to write a letter and share my favorite pictures of us. I hope you enjoy.

Dear Angel Charlotte,
     I love you for being my best friend and not because nobody else will play with us in the neighborhood. We have so much fun together and you do not tell our Mom when I say nasty words or pass gas. I am sorry that sometimes when I play "Super Freak" I get carried away and I make you feel uncomfortable.
Love you always and fo-eva,
Co Co

Lovers Day

Valentine's Day is not a big day around the White House. I am one of the least romantic people you will ever meet unfortunately but I guess fortunately for Josh. However we did do a few sweet gestures to celebrate the day.

Charlotte and Ziggy the Zebra (a Valentine gift from Beanie) worked very hard on a Valentine for her Daddy.

Dad came home with flowers for both of his girls. What a guy, huh?

It is so crazy to think this was Charlotte a year ago today. Time goes by way too fast when your having fun. Happy Valentines Day!!!
