I can't believe it myself. I don't know how to explain it...I'm a complicated girl. Oh, who am I kidding? He is gorgeous. And has an accent. He looks very good in Polo's and crisp white shirts that are unbuttoned...unbuttoned a lot. I'm not even an unbuttoned shirt kind of gal. I'm just as surprised as you. And he maybe, a little bit, might not hit the high notes or knock my flip flops off with his singing, but I think that just makes him even more lovable. Crushable. Lovable is a little strong. Crushable.
And Momma Mia is my new favorite movie! I loved it, loved it, loved it! You must see it. And not only for Pierce! Meryl is amazing! She better win something for this! And I want to be just like her! I don't care if I'm thirty-five and she's um...maybe not thirty-five...she rocks on so many levels! I want her voice, her attitude, her hair, her overalls, and I FOR SURE want to fall out of a hole in the roof of a goat barn and land (*just like that*) on a blown-up air mattress in front of three of my past loves...or just Pierce Brosnan.!
Everyone in this movie was amazing! I want to have two best friends *just like that* and bust out in ABBA songs all throughout my day and have crowds of people at the grocery store and the parent-pick up line join in and we all do amazing and very well choreographed dance routines! And of course, Pierce will look at me *just like that*! (and just as a side note--I loved ABBA before Mama Mia-you needed to know this, right?. My Grandma Jo gave me their Super Trouper *tape* when I was just going into 7th grade--I immediately fell in love, love, looooove...) P.S. Hi Shannon! (my soul friend who is reading this right now--hey girl!)...we are going to see this! There's a sing-a-long coming out! An adult sing-a-long! I could cry!
I just want to be in this movie. Period.
So yes, I did that this week--got a new fave movie and a new boyfriend. Crushfriend. This was also a big, big week (still is) as summer is officially over and I now have a 2nd grader and Kindergartner! Can you believe it?! We are very excited around here. I'm very sad to say bu-bye to sleeping in and a very relaxed routine, but am looking forward to getting into this new groove with my girls. My school girls. Awesome.
So yesterday was O's big day. She was seriously counting down and going to bed first and early (her idea), so that the first day of school would come faster. Here she is--Miss Second Grader!!
How cute is she? Please tell her she looks adorable in her glasses...she's concerned. Her lil' sis is now in countdown mode anticipating her big day tomorrow! I'll be back with pics of her shining moment!
Here's a couple more pics from this week...
Below is a pic of a play date we had this week, gone wrong. This was the calm before the storm. It's not funny to me yet, but when it is, I'll blog about it.
The above pic is just something I love to see. Love it.
This is one of my brothers...my little brother. He is 15 and *just* got his driver's permit. He is very, very excited about this and might think I'm the coolest out of all of his sisters for putting him in her blog and telling the world! I could see it going another way too though...
Oh, one more thing. Hubby just informed me that he we have an Air Force ball to go to next week! If you read this--A Plane, A Baby & Ear Muffs --you can probably tell I'm very excited for this. That and now I have to find a foo foo dress to squeeze into and someone to do my hair all fancy pants. This stresses me out to no end. You have no idea how I avoid fancy pants. Though I must say that this-- is growing on me. Notice just how very much it covers up? Do you think you could have big boobs (and maybe big other stuff) and wear this? If the answer is yes, can you go ahead and loan me $318? Thanks.
