This and That

Who knows where this fashion forward tike discovered a 6-12 month sized red sock to pair with a cream and blue one, but rest assured, she dressed herself this day. A diva in the making, just add a lowly peasant dropping grapes into her mouth and the transformation is complete.

Speaking of this diva, I ENROLLED HER IN PRESCHOOL TODAY. Yep. Beginning next fall, she will be cutting and pasting with the best of 'em. I found a lovely, lovely preschool where I truly believe she will flourish--especially on the days when she is the designated special helper. Right up Lilly's alley, she grabs life in a huge bear hug and takes it for a ride. On HER terms. I'm proud of her.

Random thought #2: I'm loving this honey's "rock star hair." He selected his hairstyle straight out of a magazine, letting Miss Alissa (hairstylist) and mama know he wanted "rock star hair." I respect that.

My rock star's kindergarten registration is this week. Be still my racing, troubled, excited heart.

Random thought #3: Hello, chocolate chip pumpkin bread. I know it is not the season for pumpkin, but there was a lone can of it leftover in my pantry from the holidays, and I found this delicious recipe! Thank you, Kitchen Sink. That makes two great recipes I have discovered on your blog!

Did you know a can of pumpkin has 300% Vitamin A per serving and 5 g of fiber? This made a great snack for my kids.

Finally, the arrival of this package, courtesy of Jocelyn and The Trendy Owl, in my mailbox made me oh, so happy.

Any random thought you'd like to share here today? Oh, and my one year blog-iversary is Saturday. How should we celebrate?


  1. You bought the necklace! Yay! I am so happy for you! I was drooling over it. :)

  2. The part about the kindergarten registration about made me throw up. How can that be? I was just hosting your baby shower for him!

  3. Gorgeous necklace...so happy and fun! I miss my baby girls dressing like that...take lots of pics. It goes so fast. And kindergarten, oh my....my baby boy went to kindergarten, and now he's suddenly in seventh grade. Enjoy each day. I must say, my newfound bit of freedom this year with all in school (even though it's 1/2 day kindergarten), has been good for the soul!

  4. Preschool and Kindergarten!! Exciting and terrifying all at once. I'm sure they will love it (and hey, that alone time will surely be nice!). The 'rock star hair' bit is hilarious! And the bread looks delicious. I made pumpkin and chocolate chip muffins once and we loved them.

  5. i love pumpkin stuff any time of the year! And funny...i have a very similar recipe. Makes me want to whip it up today :)

  6. I'd almost throw myself under a train for a piece of that delicious bread...... it's been that kind of a day.

    Okay...jk. Maybe I would throw my husband under a train... ????

    Yikes. I'll just stop here.

    God is good. Sleep makes everything better!

    Have a great night my friend!

  7. I want to come eat breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert at YOUR house.

  8. Thanks for the sweet comment! Your blog is GORGEOUS, I'm totally following you! Love, Cintia :)

  9. Congratulations on one year of wonderful blogging. I anticipate each entry, they give me such joy. Every time I think it can't get any better, you top it. I cannot wait until there is a Yeebird Magazine!

    Your blogging pal,

  10. That is quite a getup!

    I love pumpkin AND chocolate, so I can't believe I've never thought of combining the two. Thank you in advance, I know I'll love it.

    PS, I find MA'AM to be INCREDIBLY annoying/ borderline insulting when it comes from a peer. Make me want to respond with 'You look tired!' which is another pet peeve of mine...

  11. I meant 'makes' of course.

    And I think you should celebrate your blogoversary by having Lilly put together an ensemble for a self-congratulatory photo shoot.
