Some Green Things You Need To Know About


 Yesterday I mentioned that I got Melanie's book, Sparkly Green Earrings
  
Last night Katie went to bed and Marcus was studying.  So I plopped myself on the couch to watch the Oscars and I was going to peek at the book. I was still SO tired from the weekend, I just wanted to veg.  Anyway, my "peek" turned into me reading the ENTIRE thing in one sitting!  I left a nice dent in my couch cushion.  Maybe I shouldn't have polished off a bag of peanut m&m's while I was reading? 
It was so good! I also mentioned yesterday that I almost NEVER read books! I don't have the patience or the attention span.  This book kept my attention and I didn't want to put it down.  I related to so many things. It's nice to know that we are in the motherhood boat together!

This weekend at Dot Mom girls were dressed so dang cute.  It was fun to people watch. And everyone and their grandma's dog was wearing the green Stella and Dot earrings.  They go with everything!
  
They looked JUST like the ones I am selling at Golightly's.  I am so glad I kept a pair for myself! 
 And they are half the price!

 While we are on the green train (you know it's THE color for 2013!) I will share some flats I found at Tarjay!
This bottom picture is how I really stand. My mom said she never knew which direction I was going.  It's kind of Fred Flinstone-ish.
 They are super comfy and were less than $20. 

And this has nothing to do with green, but we went to story time at the library today. I finally got over my fear of checking out books and let Katie pick 2 out.(I am afraid of losing them or someone ripping the pages!) She picked 2 Christmas books AND a Christmas movie. Do you think she might be related to me?
 
 And whomever said that it's not appropriate to have the TV as a babysitter, never had kids! Right now Katie is watching a movie as I am on my computer.  Guess what she's watching?! 
Mickey's Christmas! 
 
 God knew what he was doing when he put us together.

Mmmm ... I love those shoes! As I told you recently, green is my signature color! Could you go buy me a pair and mail them to me? The nearest Target is an hour away!! :)

Hi Dina!
Dot Mom looks like it was a blast. I did the exact same thing as you.....plunked down (with tissue!) and sped through Melanie's book.....laughing and crying all the way!

Hey, I'm not sure which post I should leave a comment on, so I'm leaving it on BOTH. Never one to shy away from overstating things, I suppose. Ha! :-) IF you have green earrings left (E or F), I'd like to buy a pair!

..........And it goes without saying that I should probably visit Target for the matching shoes. Right? You're with me on that, yes?? :-)

THANKS!!
Brooke

Everyone and their Grandma's dog is reading that book! I do like to read, but not normally funny memoirs like that. But apparently I need to get that one!

So I found you from one of my besties blogs pinteresttoldmeto and she has a link to Kelly's korner who has a picture of you from the weekend thing and a link to your blog. I thought I might have recognized you from the picture but once I glanced at your blog I knew it!!! My daughter Harper is in Katie's class"! What a strange small world that I would "introduce" myself to you this way! See you Thursday!!!

Dina said...

That is funny! I love pinterest told me to! And Katie LOVES Harper! Harper is always the little care taker of the class!

Your jeans are too cute! Where did you get them and what brand are they? I'm always looking for cute jeans to wear with flats!!!
