Pretty Day for SHOPPING

Angie Seaman is hosting Foto Find Friday again this week on her blog and the topic is water. Well, it just so happens that I live near a little bit of water. Interestingly enough though, I am not going to share those pics today, I want to show you some other water that I fell in love with a couple of years ago.

My little sister lives down in the Bayou and I LOVE it down there. Yes, it's hot and humid, but something about it just makes me happy. The music, the food, the rain during the hot part of the day. The first time I visited her I was napping on her couch after a red eye flight and I heard the most horrific noise outside. It was thunder in the middle of the day. I wasn't expecting it because here in sunny SoCal, we don't have thunderstorms. I felt foolish for being so frightened, but what can I say, it was just unexpected.

I am not posting all of my pics on here, but I took some pictures of one of the marshes down there (with my old, now broken, sweet Canon Camera) and they are so pretty and almost unreal looking to me.
Every time I look at this picture, I think back to that day and remember wondering if a big gator was going to jump up and bite my leg off. Every log laying in the water begins to look like a alligator.

Seriously. Do those trees even look real? These pics were not touched up. I am not kidding when I tell you that I love it down there.

I took the girls to see the "Scary Jesus Statue" today. I took pictures. With my phone. What did I remember when I got home and tried to email them to myself? That I cancelled my Sprint phone internet today. NOOOOOoooooooooooOOoooo. I forgot all about that. So, I'll be going back with Mallorie's camera to take pictures. They were very freaked out. Mallorie said "they're following me!!" talking about the eyes. I love Jesus. I just don't particularly like it when you see a statue of Him and it makes you feel like He's going to haunt you in your dreams.

Man does she look guilty or what? I went and washed my car today and when we arrived home I noticed that my window has finger smudges all over it. I asked Mallorie if she did it and she said no way! Then I caught her in the act. She was smudging!!

I'm making her clean it with Windex tomorrow!!

This girl has been my helper a lot lately! Thanks a bunch Hannah. For some reason Ava loves to fall asleep on Hannah & I appreciate it so much! Now I'm going to tattle on her. Today Mallorie was asking everyone in the world had a blog. Hannah said no. She asked if MiMi (my Mom) had a blog. Hannah said no, Mimi's like 80something years old. I can't help but laugh, but Mom, you do not look or act anything like you're eighty something years old. Dear Sweet Hannah.

And this little girl. Well, she's 6 months old today. I'll post her couch pic later. I think my life has been in fast forward lately because there is no way six months has already flown by. Well, even if it did, I've enjoyed every bit of them. She's a sweetie. She slept all night in her crib last night. That's because when she woke up, I put her pacifier in her mouth instead of picking her up and feeding her. It worked. She slept.

We're heading out to school shop for clothes and shoes this weekend. I know Rusty's really excited. I can tell by the way he's been rocking back and forth while grasping his credit card.

We're heading to an outlet mall in another town. They have tons of stores with cute clothes so I'm excited. Shoes always end up being the most difficult thing to buy, so wish us luck.
