vintage

GUYS!

Thought of you today. It's seriously INSANE to think I blogged my first blog FIVE years ago! HOW HAS IT BEEN THAT LONG??? Love that it's long enough ago and that nobody does it anymore that me doing it right now is basically vintage.

Anyways, just wanted to say hi and share a couple things that will suprise the heck out of you. Ready!?

Tridger is seriously ALL BOY and Alivyiah is such a DIVA and Brogan is still sleeping like a CHAMP and they never get sick because oils, we're building a new house AGAIN which the planning is like a fulltime job I swear. With that and pinning and girls camp and Costco, things are CRAZY.

Just wanted to pop in and say miss you, love you, best 5 years of my life, guys.

Mhana said...

Oh my heck! Please tell me you only did the cute part of girls camp (crafts, modest bikini polar bear runs that show your cute bipples to the life guards) and giving DaTinG TiPs not the gross part like cooking and cleaning and trash and being dirty.

Seriously, I want to be your pinterest friend. Let me guess. Ombre everything, distressed painted furniture, maxi dresses, hair ties, crafts you will never do, Teacher Thank Yous that are totes adorbs and misspelled quotes from general authorities! LURVE!!!

Nan said...

Please post a link to your interest board, I've just got to make everything that you think you might make.

And fur deals, I have reread your last post with melancholy for like years, hoping that you would join my Facebook groups so I could send you adorable Christmas cards and see pictures of your blond, perfect children.

Natali said...

I just wanted to comment to validate you since I'm sure you're just going to be devastated at the small number of people still following your blog after you deserted us. Glad to have you back at least long enough to comment about vintage and oils :-).

Steven and Wendy OBryant said...

my heart! it can't handle the tease. I miss you TAMN, I just do.

myimaginaryblog said...

Oils. Of course. It's like you'd never been gone! Happy fiveyearday! (Belated.)

I was only in Reader because I'm trying to find a replacement for it when it goes away in a few days. This only makes it clear just how badly I do need to find a replacement, even if I never do read blogs anymore because I'm so busy with more important things like Pinterest.

leflerphotography said...

Amen to everyone else. Time have changed and I'm sure you have too!! I'd just love to hear your take on everything since January of 2011. You are SO vintage.

Seriously so glad we haven't drifted apart and have tons more things in common now! Oils.....lurve! and, are you totes in lurve with Dirty Diet Coke like me?!!!! Sounds like a bad thing but it's the bestest! For realzies.

KWestern said...

Seriously so glad we still have so many things the same in our lives! I was seriously so angsted that we might upart. Oils are the bestest---lurve them. And, I know the answer is prolly yes but do you love Dirty Diet Cokes too?!1111111Seriously the bomb! sounds like it could only be a drink for married people but it's not....

KWestern said...

Seriously so happy to see we haven't totes drifted apart and still have tons in commun! Oils are the best--do you make cafe rio stuff with them too?! and do you totes lurve Dirty Diet Cokes? I know it sounds like its only for hot and married women but seriously, they're the bomb!

Danielle said...

I just pee'd a little because I was so happy to see a post from you. Can't wait to hear all about birthing sweet Brogan and all of the other up dates- like everything Tridger and Alivyiah have been accomplishing. And I have to know, are you sending your kids to public or private school, or are you getting a permit to go elsewhere? Or...homeschooling? I just have to know all this so I can decide what is best to do with my chitluns.

~PEARL & MAT~ said...
