Not Me Monday



 





{{confession session}}


*I did not gain 5lbs. over the weekend for celebrating my Mom's birthday with cake, red velvet cupcakes and ice cream! NO, Not Me!


*I did not buy my Mom a card that "Poppa Chip" had bought her last year... OOPS! No, Not Me!

*I did not take my daughter to my first meeting with a Bride yesterday... No, Not Me!
{{it was a just a walk through of her venue}}
Although, now, Kenley is now officially a "Chic Girl"! :)
 
*I did not have a mini "Happy Hour" {{although 1 margarita each doesn't really count for H.H.}}
with Nonna yesterday for lunch at our favorite Mexican place (but Mexican food just doesn't taste as good without a margarita with it!) :)
... No, Not Me!
{{pictures of Miss Priss at lunch coming soon- 
I HAD to take pictures of the first time she sat in a highchair while out eating!}}
YES, I am "that" Mother who takes pictures too many pictures of things like this!


HAPPY MONDAY Everyone!



LOVE,
A



Monday with Margarita's



{{they make Monday's so MUCH better!}}


pictures while out having a "Girls" lunch with Nonna...


Miss Prissy pants fell asleep during the car ride to the restaurant!

SO 
she slept through the first half of our lunch.





and Yes, she is still using her "baby" car seat!
I haven't gotten her a "Big Girl" car seat yet
b/c my Prissy pants is rather on the teeny tiny side and still has yet to reach the 25lb mark!

People are always shocked to hear how old she is... they assume she's 6 to 9 months old! ha

anyways... back to the pictures...

Once she was UP she was ready for lunch!


{{eating some of Mommy's & Nonna's lunch before hers arrived}}




 {{having some milk, no margarita for Miss Priss, 
through a straw b/c Mommy forgot to pack the sippy cup}}


 {{chicken & tater tots}}




Prissy Pants LOVES to people watch...







and at times it can become a bit embarrassing- she'll just stare & stare!



and then it was time for COLORING!





It was fun having a girls lunch, I LOVED every minute of it,
I think Kenley did too!




LOVE,
A

FASHION Friday ♥



"fashion fades, but style, friends & family remain"


okay so I added the "friends & family" part to Chanel's quote...
I had to tie in fashion & family somehow!

Today is my Mother's Birthday... 
as some of you may know from the post below!


So I dressed my little Prissy pants up
&
did a mini "photo shoot" for Nonna!


my favorite picture that I got ....







this one I just had to share,
 she looks like such the little girl in this on to me!
{I LOVE it & hate it all at the same time}


My Prissy pants destroying my prop...





{{Happy Birthday}}



oh I LOVE my Prissy pants... even if she destroys things!
besides, she gives her "cute face" now, 
when she knows she has done something she wasn't suppose to!

Which is NOT a good thing, for me!
I melt and instantly forget the No!No! she did!

How do they learn this stuff so early?!


LOVE,
A




K ♥



Happy Birthday to someone very special...
my Momma!

{{don't worry I won't reveal what birthday this is Momma!}} :)


"Your arms were always open when I needed a hug. 
Your heart understood when I needed a friend. 
Your gentle eyes were stern when I needed a lesson. 
Your strength and love has guided me and gave me wings to fly."


I find myself wondering...
Did I give you your due..
For all that you've done for me
Did I ever Thank You?
For all of my childhood memories
For helping me deal with life's stresses
For helping me accept my defeats
And celebrate my successes?
Or for teaching me the value of hard work,
Good judgement, courage, and being true
The laughter, smiles, and quiet times we've shared
Did I ever Thank You?
If I have forgotten, I'm Thanking You now
You taught me right from wrong....
I hope you know how much you're loved and appreciated
I hope you, instinctively, knew all along.


 With being a "Momma" now too, 
I know now just how much you love me.
I am SO Thankful that I have you as my Mother, 
for all of the above reasons and more
and too, because I had the best "teacher"
for it is through you I know all of the things I do on just how to be a good Mommy, to my little Princess
the way you were to me and continue to be!


I LOVE You 
{{to the moon & back!}}


LOVE,
A

Spring has Sprung!


Spring is OFFICIALLY here!

Although, it seems like we skipped Spring and jumped right into Summer here in FL!
 {{seriously, it's been 90 here- these are the days when I want to move!}}


Miss Priss & I did a little Easter shopping this weekend!
So combined with the weekend before shopping and now this weekends... 
I'm pretty much done with her Easter basket goodies!


 The only bad part of having things now- I tend to give her some of the goodies before it's time!
{{I do this every holiday- before Christmas she got her little Cinderella doll, before her Birthday she got her little stroller and cradle for her baby dolls, & before for Valentine's day she got her V-day bear!}}

So far, she's only gotten one... a little cell phone!
{which isn't that big of a deal- she already has 5! BUT this one is PINK!}


okay now on to the pictures of the goodies...



Miss Priss already has an Easter basket, but I couldn't resist this one.
maybe this one will be used for when she goes "Egg Hunting"!
I'm sure I'll be adding to it though!


I know! I know....that's a WHOLE lotta pink!  :)





HAPPY SPRING!



LOVE,
A

Leprechauns, castles, good luck and laughter
Lullabies, dreams, and love ever after.
Poems and songs with pipes and drums
A thousand welcomes when anyone comes.
That's the Irish for you!



HAPPY St. Patrick's Day!


May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!

May your blessings outnumber
The shamrocks that grow,
And may trouble avoid you
Wherever you go.






LOVE,
A

Not Me Monday



{{confession session}}


*I have not been neglecting HH's & HB's... No, not me!

*I am not a bad blogger... No, not me!

*I have not been neglecting/ losing myself... in the sense that my hair is in need of coloring
{{serious coloring- I've got like 5inch roots going on & it ain't cute}}... No, not me!

*I did not have a matching lunch with Kenley today which consisted of:
mac n' cheese and chicken fingers... No, not me!

*I am not putting spaces between these so it looks like I've typed out a lot... No, not me!

*guess what I am not totally excited for tonight???
{{or well tomorrow, when I'll actually watch it w/out all the commercials}}
PLL's!
{{Pretty Little Liars, for those of you who aren't fans}}



Happy Monday!
