What a Week

Tonight is the homecoming football game, tomorrow is the dance. I hate that the game and the dance aren't on the same night this year. Part of the fun, as a parent, is to go to the game and see all the kids dressed up. I haven't missed a homecoming game in years but decided not to go tonight. Chris took the girls and I'm sure they'll keep me updated. I also follow the football coverage on Twitter (still not sure how I feel about Twitter).

So let see....last Sunday was a gorgeous day for lax. It was so wonderful drinking up all that sunshine! KJ went to Sunday school and T had part 2 of her clinic w/ the Washington & Lee coaches. Saturday she went to the clinic, went to Yogurt Mountain w/ friends, Johnny Rockets for lunch and then Chris drove the girls to Atrox (haunted house) and T's friend Beans was driving home. It was a little nerve-racking for was the first time we've ever let T drive w/ a friend who has their license. I was nervous about Beans driving at night, on the highway, being distracted, etc. Thankfully, the girls made it home safe and sound.

After fall ball lax on Sunday we ran to the mall to find shoes and a bag for T for homecoming. Love the shoes she bought and since her dress is basic black, she went with a really cute red and black leopard print clutch to brighten things up. T's had her mani & pedi and had a haircut last week so I think she's all set for the homecoming festivities!

Monday we were woken up by a phone call from the Vestavia police. Our lax store was broken into. Without going into the details, the little turd got a couple hundred dollars in cash. In return, we have his white car and his face on video.

Today I learned that a gentlemen I worked with years ago in New Jersey lost his son in Afghanistan earlier this week. Ken was a very kind man and I'll be keeping his family in my thoughts. Everyone, please....regardless of your thoughts on the war, please keep our servicemen and women in your daily thoughts.

I understand that this is really none of my business but I can't help but comment on this recent photo of Chasity/Chaz Bono.
All I can say is WOW. That is a serious transformation. Everytime I see pictures of him/her in the news I think of the little girl that used to appear on her mom & dad's TV show.

Birthdays and Anniversaries, Oh My!

So begins our annual Crazy October Family Week. Our neice's birthday is today, our anniversary is today, Chris's birthday is tomorrow, KJ's b-day is Tuesday and my Mom's b-day is Thursday.

Since it's a 3-day weekend, volleyball and Fall Ball were cancelled so we had a fairly free weekend. After T's usual dance class, we made homemade pizzas for lunch and T made a cake for her friend's b-day and KJ & Chris decorated a haunted ginergerbread house.
Today KJ & I went horseback riding at Oak Mountain and had 5 Guys for lunch while Chris had a lacrosse game. Monday she's having her birthday party with friends so today we decorated the house and made cupcakes.
Busy week coming up!!

Sweet Home Alabama

Saw this photo (left) on an event planner's website and thought it was so beautiful. I love candlelight.

Sitting here with KJ watching Sweet Home Alabama. I know I've seen this movie but don't really remember it.

KJ had volleyball this morning. The team is getting better each week. T had dance bright and early as usual and in the afternoon we went to the mall. She found a really, really cute homecoming dress. I seem to gravitate toward elegant LBD's (Little Black Dress) and T really wanted something w/ color. She tried on 2 dresses I LOVED at White House/Black Market but she wasn't feeling it. Also found a couple of cute things at Jessica McClintock. In the end, she ended up with a LBD from Macy's. The dress is very simple and classic so she'll probably go w/ a sexy, embellished shoe.

Today's weather was absolutely gorgeous. I hope tomorrow is just as nice.
