I asked my nephew, Andrew what he wanted to be when he grew up. It was actually the first time I ever asked him that question...and his answer was highly anticipated. "A cop," he replied. "A cop?!" I was astonished. Let me explain why...Andrew is a little guy. No matter how much he eats, it doesn't seem to have any effect on him. So, to hear this little guy say he wants to be a tough cop was surprising to me...."A mall cop," he explained..."the one that rides around on those scooters you stand on." Ha! My nephew wants to be Paul Blart!!

Look who's ONE today....

Happy first birthday, Madison! I still remember the first time I laid eyes on you...time goes by so fast! I'm sure your parents agree.
May God continue to bless you and surround you with lots of love. Enjoy your special day!

Surfing instead of Sleeping...

I should be sleeping, but here I am...past midnight...surfing the web for dessert plates of all things in the world! I never knew these suckers were so hard to find. Luckily I have two sets that I use quite frequently...but I was looking for some for someone else when I stumbled upon....THIS! It appears that someone loves polka-a-dots as much as I do! I want everything on the site....(wouldn't that make for an interesting dinner party!)....But my heart is set on this.......It's the most beautiful thing that I've ever seen! And I can only imagine how amazing my strawberry cake would look in it! Unfortunately, I don't think Matt would be so happy about me forking over $100 bucks for my polkadot obsession. =/
