Bend it Like Beckham?

I'm totally getting my weekly dose of the giggles at our weekly soccer practice. These little three and four-year olds are so cute playing soccer I can hardly stand it. The things they do and say have me covering my mouth as to not condone the behavior, but it's hard not to's just a sampling of activity from last week's practice...

- Two teammates decided to have a tea party on the sidelines, complete with juice and snacks from our snackbreak
- Little man pouted every time someone on his team made a goal because they didn't let him have the ball, he even went as far to hit one of the girls on the back because she scored (and she was on his team)
- Of course, I had my camera, so one teammate decided to have an impromtu photo session while sitting on her soccer ball and wanted to come over to me after every picture I took to see herself
- One teammate was throwing leaves into the ditch and watching them float
- Then, one little girl had to potty, which turned into three little girls having to potty, causing us to have to put the whole scrimmage on hold because we lost half of the team
Then everything stopped when a plane went over and they all pointed in the sky and screamed, "a plane, a plane"


  1. I love it! Little kids are a riot.

  2. This is hilarious!!

    I was just telling my husband last night of my foray into soccer when I was in kindergarten. I much preferred defense because I'd pick dandelions and turn cartwheels when the ball was down at the other end of the field :)

    Kids sports are too cute to observe. Thanks for sharing this and for a good laugh!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
