i'm not her mother

alright~ i'm going to share a funny thing that happened to me and my mom yesterday at Wal-Mart.

We were standing in line at the photo center, a lady walked by and accidentally dropped a small, light-weight, card board box on Lily Kate.
She didn't get hurt--I promise. ;) But when the lady started apologizing to her, she busted out crying, (she hates strangers!), so  I picked her up, and was comforting her. Well...

A lady in the line, asked my mom, "Are you her grandmother?".
I guess that makes me the mother. :/

A lot of people mistake Abigail and I for her mother, when we are out with her. I guess it doesn't help that I push her stroller. :)

You should see some of the looks that we have gotten. ha!


Last night my Mom, Abigail, Lily Kate, and I went to "Lowe's" to pick out paint colors.
Before we left I went up stairs to my room, to get ready.

You know how your hair looks on the second day without washing it... well, I had "second day hair", yesterday. ;)

I hate second day hair-- it looks awful!

Mine didn't look good yesterday-- at all. So I took out my "Paper Boy" hat, and put it on.
It looked fine, but not really appropriate to go to a hardware store in. You know what I mean? ;)

So I took that off, tried a couple of different things with it. Then finally decided to wear my sunglasses on my head. I always wear my sunglasses on my head, whenever I go out.
Yes, I know that there wasn't any risk on the sun being in my eyes at seven o'clock at night, but you know-- those bad hair days, you've got to do something to cover it up! ;)

My hair is officially down to my hips. This coming Thanksgiving it will be a year since I last cut it.
I can't decide on weather or not to cut it a little below my shoulders like it was when I first started growing it out or not. What do you think?

The last time I cut it is when my mom gave me bangs. I remember it was late at night, and we sat in my bedroom, and she cut them.

Don't asked me what possessed me to get them, the week before Thanksgiving, when everybody would see me.

But lets just say that I looked like a freak 60's freak. I hated it. Abigail, is the only one that liked them. My mom didn't. I hate it when my mom doesn't like something. After that I told her not to let me make such a quick decision next time! ;)

But they have grown out to where they look more like layers now. It only took a year! ☺

I think I will probably leave it long, and just trim a little at the bottom.


 It didn't work out to close on our house last Friday, but we are tomorrow! Yay! We are super excited~
we have to paint the whole house, so that is a lot of paint colors we have to pick out...
my mom just can't seem to make up her mind. She had them picked out, and we were going to get samples of them. She changed her mind, standing in the store, looking at the 500 colors they have to chose from. :/

We might just have to settle on ti-died. All the colors in one! ;)


We also went to wal-mart to pick up some cleaning supplies, after we went to "Lowe's". The house hasn't been lived in for a while so, it has collected a lot of dust, and nasty stuff, so we will also be cleaning a lot.
We decided to stock up on some groceries, and just take them over to our house, once we close tomorrow. There is this syrup that we get. It's all natural, and is really good.

We got like six bottles of it. It will take us about a year to use it all, considering that we don't have pancakes very often!
When we were checking out a lady said, "Is this good Maple Syrup?". I guess she noticed! :)

We also got some Starbucks coffee, that comes in the big bags, and you just brew it yourself. I really love coffee. We never get coffee, but we just decided to last night. So this morning I decided to have some.

I don't know how to work a coffee machine. I'm not "in" like that. :) So my mom and I were standing there, trying to figure it out. We ended up pouring the water over the ground coffee, not knowing that's not the way you do it. Bright, huh? :)

Once we saw the water drain through the filter, and it come out a yucky gold, we knew that we did not do it right, we started over, and re-did it, this time successfully!
{of course once we finished, I found the instruction booklet!}

I took the first sip.

It was SO strong. We didn't have any milk, or cream so all I could add to it was sugar. My little brother suggested putting maple syrup in it, I declined. :)

Later, after my mom had gone to the store, and gotten some milk, I heated it back up, and added milk.
I loved it!

I could really get used to it. That might not be a good thing! :/
Levi (3) lOveS coffee!! It is super cute to watch him drink it~


Someone asked where we were staying until we moved into our house. We are living in a vacation home, until our house is ready.

When we were packing our clothes to bring with us, my dad kept saying, "Pack light, Pack light". So guess what I did? I packed light! ;)

I really regret it now. I am getting really sick of the pieces of clothing that I brought! God was really good to us, and hasn't made the weather get to cold!!

We are supposed to get our things back next Thursday, and I can't wait!

I miss my stuff!

I will try to post again soon~

Your Mom really looks old enough to be a grandma. What a joke! You and Abigail couuld pass for young teen moms though. Sure wish I could come help you with your painting. I used to be a good painter. My thoughts will be with you. Love - BooBoo

That's so funny! People sometimes mistake me for my siblings' mom sometimes, too. (I guess pushing your three-year-old brother in his stroller doesn't help that idea! =) )

That really funny!
I don't think I could ever be mistaken for being a mother, because my youngest siblings are only 3 years younger than I! :p

I don't think you should cut your hair, it's really pretty! Ofcourse I don't know what it looks like short.

Where are ya'll staying at before ya'll move into y'alls house?
I have friends who are doing the same thing right now, moving, cleaning and getting ready to move into a new, but not new house.
