Flashback Friday: 2005 & 2010

I was invited to participate in Flashback Friday. I really like the idea of going through old photos (although I admit I don't really have many from prior to 2004).

Any mama who finds out they are having a girl are usually delighted... have you seen the amazingly cute clothes they make for baby girls? While I honestly admit I wanted my first child to be a boy - my mom really wanted me to have a girl (my brother already had twin boys - so she was itching for a granddaughter). If memory serves me correctly my sister and I went shopping at the Children's Place outlet and we picked out this cute dress and matching hat. I really loved the pastel green color with pink accents - girly, but not "pink" girly - know what I mean? My family and friends all bought her so many gorgeous outfits - I just couldn't wait for her to wear them all!

Sunday Stealing: The Never Ending Meme - Part One

Sunday Stealing: The Never Ending Meme - Part One

Anyone missed these posts? They're a bit fun to do - I just haven't had much time to blog the last few weeks.

1. Song that always makes you sad?
I don’t listen to music anymore, but I would say one of the saddest songs I’ve heard is How Can I Help You to Say Goodbye

2. Last thing you bought?
Generic Neosporin from Target... nothing exciting really. However, I’m going to buy a bike so I can go bike riding with the kids!

3. Last person you argued with?
My brother... it wasn’t really an argument but he watched some documentary called Forks Over Knives and he’s convinced that we should give up dairy and other stuff and I wholeheartedly disagree with him. It’s sad when people adopt science as their religion... Even scientists are wrong; they’re human afterall. Everything in moderation!
