As you all know, Maryl is leaving TOMORROW for her fabulous adventure in Sing Sing! We are so excited to see what is in store for them... but I sure will miss our daily car ride convos about absolute nonsense! We made a joke yesterday that we love "FAVORITES" and made a half-serious agreement to share daily favorites with each other! I've decided to share the things our household considers top notch with everyone on occasion so here it goes....

My Favorite tail-wagging smile to come home to turned seven on Wednesday! Lola, you're my all-time favorite! Love you so much!
Blowing out her birthday candle!!

Sweet "P"

In case you haven't heard, Maryl is having a GIRL! Perry Louise Green will grace us with her presence this fall and we cannot wait to meet Miss P (we are ignoring the fact that it could be light years away, that's what face time is for, right?!)! Anywho- the impending excitement reminds me of welcoming Gussy into the world; all of us lost our minds in the midst of shopping for the first baby of the family! So imagine, this is the first girl- We are all dreaming of smocked dresses and ruffles and everything cute, sweet and fabulous which brings me to this interesting post I came across this morning about "How to talk to Little Girls". I found it very interesting and it honestly made me think of the first time I realized that there were little girls that were in fact, cuter than me. Darn you small town, you fooled me! Totally kidding, but it was a rude awakening to read about how we can shape a child's self-image by asking questions.
