Long time, no post

This is picture heavy, but it will help me to remember this summer, which feels like an ultimate BLUR!!!!
We've been super busy with helping my little brother, Greg, get ready to be married in September. They are inviting over 600 people and to say that it will be a grand event is a HUGE understatement. Through it all, he makes time for his Paigee Poo :)
I've been busy photographing babies, babies, babies and then some still life (which I love!)

Paige and friend, Annika, before heading to a "Hollywood" party at the club. Ooh la la!

Sooo posh, daahling! For my little tomboy, she did a great job putting this outfit together ( I think she secretly enjoyed it, too!)

She is letting her hair grow so that she can donate it to Locks of Love...sooo proud of her!

We get our obligatory pedi bi weekly. This week she chose lime green with black animal stripes. Roarrrrr :) Double click on any of these pics to see them larger.

You know me, shop till ya drop...I LOVE having a shopping buddy now :)

Life is rough! Drinking her Starbucks (strawberries and cream frappucino (sp?) while getting her pedi.

We've been spending LOADS of time with her bff's, Hailey and Avery. She loves these girls! I do, too!

I got this new car, because...

this (PAID OFF) Ford Escape caught on fire, in our driveway, at 8:00 a.m. The fire investigators said that it was electrical and that we should do some research to see if there were any recalls. If you have an Escape, this was a 2001 model. I miss my little SUV :(

We have a great shopping area in our town that has great fountains. On any given Thursday evening, you will find us on a blanket, listening to the jazz band while watching the kids run through the fountains. We eat appetizers and enjoy a little bubbly.
We were invited to swim with Annslee and family on Father's Day. Once again, I cannot thank this family enough for taking us in and welcoming us and treating us as though we were family. I truly believe we have made life long friends with them and we are BLESSED!
Little and Big :) Annslee and Paige
We are really enjoying our summer. Paige has attended VBS at our church, has gone to dance camps, has gone on so many playdates I can't even count anymore and so much more. I think it's a good thing that I can't find the time to blog, however this is our scrapbook and I am going to focus on this. I spend a lot of time on Facebook and like my dear friend, L. says "our kids can't go back and read about their childhood on Facebook". I am going to make more of an effort to blog at least once or twice a week. Sooo much more important than how I am spending my online time.
I hope that you and yours have a Safe and Happy Fourth of July!!!!

You've been missed! And if I ever decide to have a pedi (I hate people touching my feet), I believe I shall copy Paige and get lime green with animal stripes. Ooh la la! (Sorry about the car - glad no one was hurt!)

Super Mommy said...

OMG Missy - your car :( glad no one was hurt during the fire and that it stayed contained. Miss. Paige is getting sooo big - she looks so grown. Love the pics!

What a great post. I feel the same way about keeping up my blog because it is an online scrapbook for me.
So sorry about your vehicle catching on fire. That is horrible. Glad you got a nice new ride though.
Love the pics of Paige and all of her friends. You guys always have so much fun!

I can't possibly comment on everything, but it sounds like you are having the perfect summer (except for maybe the car fire!). That picture of Paige drinking her Starbucks while getting a pedicure is a riot; so pampered!

Your summer sounds wonderful!!! Ours has been a total blur too! I love that Lala and you have become such special friends. Blogging has brought me so many wonderful friendships too. Paige is so beautiful and I love how she is growing up. So cute that you go get pedicures together:)
