But so many other things are making me smile these days, and here are my top 5.
Being able to throw a party for a great friend who is expecting her first baby girl. I would post a picture of her "belly bumping" her also- pregnant friend, but child services might call. The party was so much fun.. I feel like I did nothing but show up to a beautifully decorated home with amazing food and super fun people. You need to check out that arrangement in the antique baby carriage.
I made my first Pear Pie. I think Nick jokingly asked his sister years ago to make one for him. She, unsurprisingly, found a crazy good recipe and rocked it out. She brought it back this year over Thanksgiving and I got to help with the pie crust. I didn't get a picture of it baked, but that weaving isn't too bad!
My other sister in law shared this website with me. Of course, I helped her pick out a great pair, but I might have also spent a couple of hours tonight making my wishlist. Do I think they are real? Yes. If not, don't tell me. They are beautiful. I MUST HAVE THAT RED SOLE!!! And being the good Memphis expat that I am , I am thinking blue suede? Plus, they would be good Ole Miss shoes..
Speaking of wish lists and sisters in law, I wish I could get both of mine these plates. They make me so happy.. and I think they would both dig them too. But, alas, I am unemployed. Unless you girls just want one apiece, you will not be getting them. Would you go with the assortment of colors or just stick with one? Hmmmm. I think I would pick just one color. But I can't right now.
And now being serious. What is really making me grin like a crazy person??? PARADE WEEK, people!!! I love the parade. Love. If you need me Friday, I will be freezing my little (I wish) butt off sitting in front of Giardinas with a fun group of girls watching the 75th Roy Martin Delta Band Parade.
It is Christmas, my dears. And what says that more than booty- dancing???
Have a great Tuesday!
