Silly Grandpa

Does anybody watch Dancing With The Stars? I do! It is one of my 84 year old grandpa’s favorite shows. He can only make it about 30 minutes into the show before he falls asleep, so he calls me the next day for a recap. He also has me call in and vote for his favorite. And he gets mad at Lynn Goodman (or “the old judge” as my grandpa calls him) for not giving his favorite dancer good enough scores. I have to remind my grandpa that “the old judge” is younger than him. Grandpa is too funny! He was happy to hear that his favorite, Katherine Jenkins, has made it to the finals 🙂 You can bet he will have me calling in next week to vote for her to be the champion!

I don’t think I’ve worn a jean skirt since middle school. I bought this one in high school and it has been sitting in the bottom of my dresser ever since. After seeing this photo of Miranda Kerr, I decided to dig out my jean skirt and take it for a spin. I like how the blazer kind of dresses it up a bit. What are your feelings towards jean skirts? Is it a Yea or Nay?

My mom and beautiful grandma. We miss you grandma!
Day trip to San Fransisco with my mom, dad, sister, and hubby. Wish my soon-to-be brother-in-law could have been there.
My wedding day
Happy Mother’s Day to my wonderful mom! She is the most amazing woman in the world and I hope to be just like her. She truly is the greatest mom and I love her so much! Hope everyone enjoys their Mother’s Day!

This is about as close to “hippie” as my wardrobe gets. What is it that makes this outfit fit into the hippie category? Look closely and you will see that my bracelet has peace signs dangling from it. And in my book peace signs = hippie. So peace out and have a groovy weekend! (See, I even have the lingo down)
