Catch Up on Life in Ladybug Land

I love to blog...
I love to read other people's blogs...
I love to scrapbook...
I love my cricut...
I love to rubberstamp...
I love to sew...
I love to shop (mostly for scrapbook stuff)...
I love to crop with my scrapping pals...
I love reading the message boards on meetup...
I love water aerobics...
I love to ride my bike...
I love to cook...
Most of all, I love to spend time with my family!

What I don't love... is that I don't have time to do everything I love! Makes me think of that old movie Multiplicity (it's a family favorite)... any one know the one I'm talking about? Michael Keaton plays a contractor who is trying to juggle work, family and fun and decides he needs to clone himself to get it all done. It's hilarious, if you haven't seen it, you should rent it and be prepared to giggle. My family's favorite line... "Steve (which isn't even his name!), she touched my pep pea!"... favorite scene is where the 3rd clone (who is a copy of a copy and not quite right in the head... get it?) is running around with a towel tied around his neck claiming to be Batman.

Anyway... sometimes I think cloning would be the answer to my prayers. Then I wake up and realize that God doesn't give you too much to handle, you just have to be creative sometimes about getting it all done... or learn to say 'no' to some people! Not something I'm good at.

Well, this past week I have been juggling work... family... friends... and personal time. I've done well on just about all of them except the personal time... hence the gap in posts on my blog. The good news though is that I have tons of pictures to post and scrapbook!

Let me start with a few pictures from last Friday. I took my daughter, Samantha and her Maid of Honor, Heather, and one of her bridesmaids, Sara, out for a day of wedding shopping. It was a fun day and we accomplished alot. Here they are:

We started with pedicures... gotta have pretty toes to try on shoes!


We started at LuLu's in downtown Dallas... tons of dresses!


We really like this Maggie Sottero dress... but its not the one!


On to the next store... Whatchmacallits in Dallas!


These dresses were put in the "NO" pile!


All that shopping and trying on dresses made the girls hungry...


...and thirsty! LOL!


Last stop for the day was David's Bridal in Frisco.


Isn't she cute in her undies! LOL! We ended up getting everything we needed at David's Bridal... undies, dress, bridesmaids dresses and flower girl dresses! Woo Hoo! One stop shopping!


I can't show the dress that she did get (because that would be BAD LUCK!), but I can show you another dress we liked... but the train was not long enough.


We really had alot of fun together and I can't wait to scrapbook those pictures!

Oh look how happy and how much fun ya'll had.

Pedicures, trying on all those gorgeous dresses.....it's every little girls dream to get 'the dress'.

Amanda is only 2.5 but I really look forward to these treasured moments with her.

I'm so glad you and your daughter are having these mother daughter moments.

Thanks Anne! We really did have fun. The girls were so silly at times and I just cracked up! Amanda may only be a toddler right now, but the time will just fly by. I remember when my Sam was terrorizing her preschool like it was yesterday!

Tammy this is gonna be a dream wedding I can tell. Samantha is having so much fun .. you can just see her glowing in the photos.

I loved putting my wedding together and I can't wait for Ericas, although I would be very sad at the thought of her leaving me.

I can't wait for more pictures and blog installments. Makes me smile every time I think of the wonderful life they have ahead of them together.
