I Can't Believe I'm Doing This


How many things have you done that you've said you'd never do? I've said I'd never . . .

Get married before finishing college

Have children before finishing college

Buy a house for over $200,000-is that even possible these days?

Be seen licking my finger then using it to clean off a child's face

Move to Utah (while not in college)
Start a blog!

So here I am eating my words.


When we were growing up there was a very long list of shows on TV that we were not allowed to watch. So we watched a lot of reruns, one of which was Leave it To Beaver. I'm a big fan of June Cleaver. Why? 1. she didn't trust Eddie Haskal, 2. she was only seen wearing a dress and high heels and 3. she was a nice mom. Of course, I haven't watched Leave it to Beaver for years but those are the things I remember about June. She's been on my mind lately because I found this $10 dress that reminded me of her.

I was looking at your blog and Xander asks, "Who is that and what is that she is wearing?" I said It's Jamie and he says, "Why is she wearing a nurses uniform?" Too funny! As for me I think you look so cute in that dress!
I too have fallen prey to peer pressure and started blogging. Looking forward to your future posts!

It is hard to keep words sweet enough that they are palatable later. I never wanted to live in Florida, so I'm your boat, just a bit to the south. Thanks for the blog invite! You are getting a "favorites" bookmark for sure!

Karen said...

Jamie said...
