{princess harper}

and the only way my summer could get much better is if i
could meet the sweetest, cutest, little toothless girlie i have ever seen.
i miss my sunny!

{lime ricki}

cute front view

it has red bottoms that you can get too.....hmmm.
but, i already have a red roxy bikini, so might go with the white.

just put this swimsuit from lime ricki
in my shopping cart online.
i never buy one pieces...i mean never ever.
but, i'm forty and i should, right?
so this is the one i picked and i think it is super cute.
there were about a gazillion that i wanted......
but will start with this one and see what i think.
i even have the red kick ass heels to wear with it if i was brave enough,
and lets be honest, skinny enough to pull it off.

{so wrong, but so true}

so fitting for my week.

Monday, July 19, 2010


You don’t have to be part of the problem
I just need a second chance
I just need a second chance
Instead of leaving me standing in sorrow
I know that you’ll understand
I hope then you’ll understand
I know that I was wrong
But just don’t walk away

Oh won’t you stay
I need you need you here
When you’re with me
All others disappear
I’ll follow close
So close I’ll almost touch
I need your love
But it never hurt this much

I don’t wanna be someone who’s searching
Finally met someone
I finally met someone
There’s a couple things I’m still learning
Just gotta figure out
But you need someone who knows
I came to you tonight
But now you’re just walking away


Don’t get caught up in mid feeling off course of day
You can take a minute before you go slipping away
I know I took some time but I realized my mistake
You don’t have to be part of the problem
I just need a second chance


I need your lovin’ arms at night, but it never hurt this much
You don’t have to be part of the problem
I just need a second chance

{coast trip with my girlie}

madison really is the sweetest girl.
i was all mopey yesterday....missing my friend.
so, madison told me to buck up and get in the car and we drove to the coast at 2:00 in the afternoon. we had lunch at mo's, walked on the bay front, and laughed our heads off at the the most random things.
it was nice to have someone to talk to. she is a keeper.

{i like you}

I Like You (by Sandol Stoddard Warburg):

I like you because I don’t know why but
Everything that happens is nicer with you
I can’t remember when I didn’t like you
It must have been lonesome then
I like you because because because
I forget why I like you but I do

So many reasons
On the 4th of July I like you because it’s the 4th of July
On the fifth of July, I like you too
If you and I had some drums and some horns and some horses
If we had some hats and some flags and some fire engines
We could be a HOLIDAY
We could be a CELEBRATION
We could be a WHOLE PARADE

See what I mean?
Even if it was the 999th of July
Even if it was August
Even if it was way down at the bottom of November
Even if it was no place particular in January
I would go on choosing you
And you would go on choosing me
Over and over again

That’s how it would happen every time
I don’t know why
I guess I don’t know why I really like you
Why do I like you
I guess I just like you
I guess I just like you because I like you.

{this is the story of a girl}

Now how many lovers would stay
Just to put up with this shit
day after day
Now how did we wind up this way
Watching our mouths for the words that we say
As long as we stand here waiting
Wearing the clothes or the soles that we choose
Now how do we get there today
When we're walking too far for the price of our shoes

Your clothes never wear as well the next day
And your hair never falls in quite the same way
You never seem to run out of things to say

{mcdowell creek falls}

madison was back home on monday....yay!
i packed a backpack full of snacks {that we never touched}

drove through subway to grab lunch.....-

and then headed to mcdowell creek falls.

it was gorgeous. and i had the best company eva!
i wish that it was just a little bit closer because i could do that hike every single day.
so much more fun than walking on sidewalks in town
but, sadly that was on monday....and it's wednesday....and i am
still so sore i can barely walk up the steps at work.
i am old and fat....but, i am a kick ass mom!
