Sparkly and Pink

How can you not be happy when you are wearing shoes that look like this:

I just had to post a picture because of all the comments I've gotten today at school:) All the little girls LOVE them, the boys stare at them, and Mr. Weisman (the guy I share a room with) told me that I am blinding him with all the sparkles and sequins.

I actually got them at a yard sale in Washington last summer - a girl that was selling them said that she had purchased them in New York and only worn them once...they just don't "go" with much. But I wore a pink shirt today and couldn't resist wearing them.

Nothing could make me happier on a Monday than wearing pinkish/purpleish sparkly, sequined shoes:) What is making you happy today?

Am I missing something?

It's November, right?
I's getting cold.
Thanksgiving is TOMORROW, right?
Christmas is on the's the end of November...

so why is it that when I turned around today in the car to see what my little man was doing in the backseat he looked like this:

and he said this:
"I'm gonna go jump in a swimming pool!"

Ok, good luck with that, Max:)!

Don't read if you have a weak stomach...

(derived from
Ok - so I know you probably don't want to be completely grossed out on this beautiful Friday morning...but I have a story I just HAVE to share:)

On Wednesday I picked Max up from the babysitter's and they told me that Max had puked in the kitchen halfway thru lunch. After he got sick - he acted perfectly fine all afternoon and played like a wild-man (like usual).

I thought that was pretty odd because he has only thrown up twice in his life, both times he had the stomach flu. So the investigation started...

Privite Eye Mama (me:)!! starting collecting the evidence and eventually came up with a main suspect: Papa Delbert!! Here's the story:

Papa Delbert offered to let Max sleep in on Wed. morning and then take him to the sitter's later. When Max woke up, this was the sequence of events:
  • Max ate a bowl of cereal

  • Papa took Max with him on his daily trip to the Essen Haus, and Max consumed a big plate of biscuits and gravy

  • Max insisted on Papa buying him a King-size Snickers before leaving the restaurant...and Papa couldn't resist

  • Max ate the entire King-size candy bar on the way to the sitter's

  • As soon as Papa dropped Max off, lunch was being served at the sitter's. They were having one of Max's favorites, chili, so he ate one bowl and asked for seconds.

Halfway thru the 2nd bowl of chili, well, you can guess what happened.....

My sweet little guy just doesn't know when to stop, does he? He gets his love of food honestly, though:)

A short one...

SICK...uggghhhh....definately under-the-weather.

But I wanted to show you a picture of our Halloween fun - here is my little clone trooper. If you don't know what a clone trooper is...that's o.k., cause I don't either;)

This picture just makes me laugh - you can totally tell he's thinking "Geezzzzz mom, are you serious?????" Can he get any cuter? He is the bees-knees:)
