Monday Memory

Hi y'all! Long time, no see! I have no good excuse for my lack of blogging, so let's just get started, shall we?

I had a blast meeting up with friends from high school this weekend for our "First Annual Girls Weekend". I am determined to do that once a year, even if we eventually have to rent a house and come with kids and husbands in tow! We picked up right where we left off and talked for hours and hours. Oh, and we ate for hours and hours too. (LOL, not really but we did our fair share of eating!) Eating out is a totally new experience without sippy cups and toddlers! Pics to follow :)

I am also deterimined to start blogging more. Seriously. Even if it means staying up past 8:30! I know that one day I'll look back on the blog and wonder why I didn't type just a little something each week. So, these may not be the most exciting or picture filled posts, but I just want to be able to remember all the adorably cute things Avery does!

So, here is today's Monday Memory (yes I totally just made that up!):

I am in LOVE w/ all the Bradford Pears in full bloom around town. (Btw, when did I get old and start noticing the beauty of trees and sunsets?) I've decided the next house I buy needs a huge one in the front yard (although Mallory would advise me differently!). Avery and I call them "Snow Trees" and every day on the way to drop her off at the sitter's she says, "I see snow tree!" and we play a game to see who can find the most. Every time she calls one out she says, "I beat you, mama!" Any time I say "I see a snow tree!" she responds, "Mama, don't beat ME!"

LOL That explains the conversation on one trip she and I took in the car where she was telling me something I didnt understand. What I did understand was "Mama beat me!" She was pointing to a pretty tree at the time. LOL LOL

Bradford pear trees ARE beautiful!

Good luck with blogging more. I think you're'll appreciate it later on. :-)

Wow! I don't think I've ever seen snow trees! That's an awesome pic though!

You're right, I would advise against it, lol. I would like to think of them more like tornado trees, haha. Every time the wind blew hard a huge branch would fall on the house. But now that the problematic front yard one is chopped down, I can still admire the one in the back yard -- from a distance! :)

I am thinking of cutting the crooked Redbud tree down in the back yard and planting a Bradford Pear. (Or better known by Avery as a Snow Tree).
