To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment. - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have ALSO decided...

That this year EVERYONE is getting a present via Ebay. I love it. The thrill of the chase. The hunting for treasures. The click of the mouse. The ease of paying with Paypal. I love it! I just think it's one of the most brilliant ideas I've ever had. I mean who doesn't want a tweety bird sweatshirt?!? No one... that's who.

P.S. I am not joking about the Ebay Christmas part.

Also... if I ever have a baby, I am not going to tell my husband until I am at least 7 months along. And, if he asks... I will just break into tears and ask him if he's calling me fat. That way it won't seem like I have been a nut job for 7 months already. Although, an argument COULD be made that I started out a bitty nutty... because who would really do that? I think I really would. I think it would be way funny.

I HEART this.

I can relate to it on every level.

I have decided...

That I do not like horse movies. I mean, I am cool with movies that contain horses... but movies about horses... na. I am out. After Sea Biscuit... every movie that is horse inspired is just a variation OF Sea Biscuit... which was a little slow. So...

Moving on... I also feel the need to write a strongly worded letter to the owner's of the ESPN Zone. I understand why there are T.V.s in the men's restroom. But, the women's??? Did they ever think maybe the women are hiding in the restroom BECAUSE of the sports on T.V. all around them. Is there no sanctuary?!?

Moving on... Disneyland on Trick-or-Treat night = paradise. Seriously AMAZING.

And, lastly... I have decided that I am a girl who wants to go ANYWHERE I have never been, even if that place is Nebraska.

Ok. I am done.

Cleaning Out the Camera

I went to a wedding this weekend for my good friend Morgan. I took "the fancy camera", but I keep forgetting that I can't really even use it until I upload the current photos somewhere (keep forgetting that). I didn't really do so well with the photos. I only took like 5. Oops.

So, this morning, I moved all of the photos from the past year or so elsewhere. And, while I did, I came across some really cute photos that made me happy. I would give them all captions... but, I am just too lazy.

Just another conversation with a 3-year-old

I am currently hanging out with my sister Jennica and her little munchkins.

And, this morning I took Gabe (3) and Janey (5) to the store with me to get milk and diet coke (don't be sad Amanda, I am still addicted). And, this conversation happened:

Gabe: Auntie Ali, can I bring in my grapefruit?
Me: Um, No.
Gabe: Well, then can I bring in my spoon?
Me: ya, um still no.
Gabe: Well then what CAN I bring in?
Me: You can bring your person.
Gabe: I DO NOT have a purse!

Psh.... why do kids need to bring in everything they've touched in a day. Makes me think of Steve Martin in The Jerk.
