I'm a twenty-nine year old Army wife currently living near a large Army post. I have an unhealthy obsession with Dr. Pepper, the Internet, cloth diapers, and ridiculous TV shows. I'm a stay at home mom to two beautiful daughters, AJ and Amelia. We also have a 6 year old beagle named Abby who is as dumb as a box of rocks.

Purple and Other Fun Things

So apparently not everyone is interested in all my ramblings about motherhood and pictures of AJ. Really? I lost a follower after I posted yesterday. Not sure what that was about, but I know some of you understand what I'm feeling. Was it something specific? Did they not like my opinion on a topic. Oh well, its my blog and I'm allowed to write about whatever I want, and if you don't like it, then you can "unfollow" me. :P

Moving on! We haven't been too busy this week, mostly just relaxing, playing outside and spending time with the family. AJ was wearing the cutest outfit ever yesterday. I've honestly have it forever and have been waiting for the stars to align weather to be cool enough and her to be the right size to fit into it forever! Here she is in her plaid tunic and white jeans (yes, I dressed my 15 month old in white jeans, what about it?).

I think she looks pretty darn cute, if I do say so myself!

For some reason, she also likes to wear this little princess dress-up skirt on her head like she's the Pope or something. Its pretty funny.
Sorry the pic is so blurry, its hard to get her to stand still long enough to get a good one!

Showing off her awesome "hat."

Wednesday afternoon my mom came home and told my sister and I to go get pedicures while she watched AJ for me. I was really debating what color to get because I didn't want it to clash with my dress for the wedding this weekend. Only problem with that plan is that I haven't officially decided which dress I'm wearing for the wedding. Eek!

I'm debating between a coral strapless dress or a navy blue dress, both of which look super cute on, but I didn't want to get pink or red nails in case I wear the coral dress. I decided to go with a lilac (lavender) purple color, and it looks super cute!

Again, sorry for the crappy picture, I was trying to take it in the nail salon without looking like a total creep!

Also on Wednesday, AJ and I hopped in the car and drove to the city to meet my cousin's new baby, Kaley! She was born almost 3 weeks ago and I was so excited to meet her and ooh and aah over a new baby! AJ was too funny. She didn't really care about the baby, to be honest, she was more interested in their dog, but once I started holding Kaley, AJ flipped out! I guess its lucky that I'm not having a baby any time soon, maybe AJ will "mature" a little bit before that happens! Ha! One thing is for sure, life will be interesting if we ever have another!

My sister said that AJ looks like a giant next to Kaley!

She was sooo little! When she was born she was a whole pound smaller than AJ was as a newborn, so I'm thinking that right now she is the size that AJ was at birth. Its crazy to think that AJ was ever that little. I mean, I know she was, but it just has been almost completely wiped from my memory!

It was good seeing my cousin and his wife again, they seem to be adjusting to parenthood rather well, and I'm glad that we made the trek to see them!

All in all, we've had a fun week and more fun is on the agenda for this weekend! I believe AJ has plans with my parents to go to the Farmers' Market and I'm going to drink my weight in margaritas with my girlfriends. Can't wait!

I'll try and post an update Sunday night when I get back, but no guarantees as AJ and I are planning to head home early Monday morning, so I'm sure I'll be busy!


  1. That outfit is SOOO cute!!!

  2. There aren't very many things that I hate more than losing a follower. I let it bother me way more than I should, and I seriously want to hunt that person down and punch them in the face. On the other hand, I LOVE your pictures of AJ and especially the white jeans. (:

  3. That is a super cute outfit and I was cracking up at the picture of the dress up skirt on her head :)

  4. Love her outfit - i want an adult sized one!

  5. I love those little white jeans!!! To freaking precious. I'm all about the purple nails too.

  6. She is too cute! And I love the purple toes :-)


I'd love to know what you think...
