Random Monday

  • So y'all don't know who the Jonas Brothers are??? They toured with Hannah Montana this summer and were on her show. They're totally cute and I believe they started out as a Christian band. Izzy has a picture of them on her bedroom door.

  • Isabel came downstairs the other day and told me her size 6 slim capris were too tight. So, later I had her try on all of her shorts and capris fully expecting her to have outgrown them all. Ok, maybe not. She put on these orange colored capris. Ok- they aren't capris anymore. They are now bermuda shorts- but they fit. She could button them and they look totally cute. Guess what size they are. Go ahead- guess. Keep in mind Izzy is almost 9. Yeah, they are a size 3 TODDLER!!! THREE toddler!!! She also still fits in her khaki (now bermuda shorts) capris. She wore them to her kindergarten assessment. They are 4T. She's so skinny. I used to be like that.

  • I am doing well on my low carb diet. I don't know how much weight I've lost. I didn't even remember to measure at the beginning. All I know is I wore a skirt to church yesterday that 2 weeks ago I wouldn't have worn. And it fit and looked cute. So YAY!!

  • Sei and I "early" voted on Friday. It was the last evening of early voting and I swear there are a lot of procrastinators out there! We waited in line for over an hour. Livie entertained and impressed people in line. There was a sign that said "VOTE HERE." She walked over to it and as I pointed to the letters she not only SAID the correct letter she also SIGNED the right letter. "V" "O" "H" "E" "R" "T" She's a smarty for sure. People were like "How *old* is she???" "She just turned 2 in January." "You are kidding me?!??!" She's so smart I let her vote. She wrote herself in.

  • Another plus of living in Texas is the humidity. I have been able to fix my hair simply by washing it, a little mousse and letting it airdry. My natural wave is back! Woo hoo!

  • Oh- the hidden rap line in my other post. "Pay attention here's the thick of the plot" was from Will Smith's "Parent's Just Don't Understand." Pay attention here's the thick of the plot, I pulled up to the corner at the end of my block. That's when I saw this beautiful girly-girl walkin'. I picked up my car phone to perpetrate like I was talkin'... Yet another song I have memorized for no reason... You can hear this line at 2:50 in the video.

I know who the Jonas Brothers are... Just don't listen to them. Maybe I should!

Isabel is so skinny! LUCKY! I wish I was like that. I've got to do something and get back in my groove or I'll be sad! I can't believe she can do up a 3T at age 9. crazy!! :)

Good job on the low carb diet. I LOVE carbs. Lately, I have been terrible... I need to get back to it.... and FAST!

Cute Liv. I'm writing her in too!

Mel said...

Wow, Livie is impressive with her sign! I love it that she is picking it up so fast.

Congrats on the weight loss...'cept I'm wondering why you think you need to lose anything. You look great!

Whitney said...

I like the Jonas Brothers, I LOVE Hannah Montana (he he).
I wish I could say I was really really skinny!
That's awesome you're doing well with your diet, those things are hard to stick to!!!

Amanda said...

Way to go with your diet! I love putting on something and having it fit when I haven't been able to wear it for awhile! :D

My girls are way skinny like Izzy. They are finally just now starting to put a little skin on their bones.

I have no idea who those Jonas brothers are.

One thing I do know is that I would have TOTALLY NAILED that hidden rap line quiz thing, had I read that post first. I also still have that one memorized. (I often wonder what I DON'T know as a result of so much of my brain being busy storing music lyrics.)

I always thought it was very unkind of the mom in that song to buy the cheap clothing and shoes for her kid when she bought a new Porsche for herself. That is, until I became a parent.

Emelia loves the Jonas Bros. too. She's getting ready for her 10th birthday party next week... a hannah montana bash. ugh. :) complete with a hannah montana cake. Should be interesting. I am excited to give her gift to her. A pink cell phone. She takes mine all the time to text her friends. Drives me nuts. My kids (especially Emelia) are big for their ages... I wonder where that comes from? She is still 9 and wears a ladies size 8 shoe!!! she wears a little girl 14 for the most part but can wear some junior xs clothes. Yay for the weight loss!

No Cool Story said...

Fashionista thinks the JB are cute...but she doens't like their music, too popish she says :)
Hey, maybe soon you'll fit Izzy's pants...right.

Parents just don't understand YO!

Stepherz said...

Wow! Izzy is a petite little thing! Bella just moved up to a 6! Maybe Izzy can wear Bella's hand-me-downs! Lol. She was born 10.5 pounds and there was never anything petite about her. She popped out of the womb mumbling something about steaks and potatoes!

utmommy said...

I agree with the others, I'm pretty sure you don't need to lose weight. But, good job!

I've got the words to "Baby Got Back" and "Ice Ice Baby" memorized. Why? Who knows? said...

hahaha, now i have "ice ice baby" stuck in my head!!!

Nancy Face said...

I cannot even imagine anyone being as teeny as Isabel! I was always a heftier child, haha! :D

Hooray for fitting into smaller clothes! It sure is fun, and expands your wardrobe! :)

Yay for humidity and easy hair! But I HATE humidity when summer comes! :0
