a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

she says the darnest things

Such a busy weekend, fun and sweet, but it was here and gone in a flash!  We went looking at houses in two completely different neighborhoods and very easily ruled out one area that we did not want to live in so even though we found nothing, we accomplished crossing off a certain city from our list, so that felt somewhat productive! 

Grandma came and watched the girlies while we went out looking and when she asked Emerson where mummy and daddy were going, she matter-of-factly said "The house shop, to buy me a new house" LOL . . . I love their literal translations at this age.

And another awesome Emerson comment . . . The flyer below came in the mail the other day and Emerson grabbed it, clutched it to her chest, hugged it, then held it out and lovingly looked at it, sighed and said "Aww mummy, look someone sent a photo of you and daddy."  And I totally know where she got that idea; this is exactly what Mr. Hotpants does when he saunters through the door each night. . . . and this is precisely what I look like after a full day of work, dinner with the girls and getting bedtime started . . .  

Although it did get me thinking that maybe Mr. Hotpants and I need to sign up for a salsa class . . . stay tuned


On a separate note I have been secretly stalking the National Geographic website.  They do a "photo of the day" that I am addicted to viewing.  I thought it would be a great idea to share the images, daily, with all of you.  Some are inspiring, some are heartwrenching, some give me hope, some leave me awestruck, and some break my heart but they all make me "feel" something, remind me how lucky I am, how beautiful the earth and its creatures are, to reach out and help others who need it and to teach empathy and compassion to my girlies . . . here is the first one . . . it is quite stunning (we actually just saw giraffes up close at the zoo yesterday and they are truly amazing creatures)
