Nectar of the Gods

What was going to be a post about Big and Little, has turned into a post about the value of lighting and editing.

Good light, Unedited 

Horribly bright, Fully edited 

**note to self, do not pose with coke zero on Sunday morning post work out with no make up. Even if the lighting is great - not so much.

Soccer and sisters

"Sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other.”  -Carol Saline

Look Mom

I'm standing on Jupiter
I'm standing on Pluto
I'm standing on the Great Wall of China
Look mom I'm standing on a fire hydrant!

The fun continues with REM standing on the ground and CEM "standing on whatever the crap this is"

Compass Arizona Grill

The one who didn't go to Homecoming
Looking beautiful (no it doesn't look like a wedding dress) , playing with her mother

And hanging with her sister 

And bringing along her fan club

And the best 2 quotes of the evening came from the revolving waitress, "they are sisters right? You rarely see sisters get along that well" and "I wanted to write something clever on your desert for celebrating not going to Honecoming, all we could come up with was congratulations"

Red Carpet Affair

The one who went to Homecoming
Looking beautiful and well coordinated with theme.

For Alice

Quotes from my tired brain this week

While describing The Glades tv show to Jess, "the main character is a murder finder"

While talking to hair dresser, "you don't date henna, you marry henna"

While talking to Sydney about kindergarten , "is Mrs Mellen a boy or girl teacher"

While talking to REM about fundraiser ,"I'll just buy them all, I'm a cool mom right?"

When cooking dinner with CEM,"You'll like this chicken, it's spicy so he doesn't taste like chicken"

Time to get stock

Sunday morning I was laying in bed playing word feud on my iPhone while cuddling with CEM watching Hugo on the iPad.

Jess walks in "how many apple products do you think we have in the house?"

I immediately answered 22 (number picked for obvious reasons).

She says "dad says 23 but I think he underestimating his iPads"

After a quick calculation - we have 26 (though there is a current discrepancy on the iPod count)

She then says, "the only reason I asked is when I walked in to watch football dad was searching for fans on the iPad, REM was on candy crush and MJM was texting.  All I have to say to that was: remember when families spent time together."

Time for stock both in apple and in family    Togetherness!

Product Reviews

The fans we won't be buying
