But...you let a couple of them play together one afternoon in a house with backdrops and a closet full of church dresses, throw in some make up and the wireless remote to mom's good camera and all the tough is wiped away. In its place, sheer girlieness.

Then I was sitting at Tori's game (if you have not seen her awesome flip as catcher check it out here: Tori's Flip) and my right arm started swelling. Bad. Like I had just got bit by a spider. So I did all the normal things - Benadryl, ice, Corticaid cream. And went to bed.
Next morning it felt sore, like it was bruised, and remained a little a swollen but not much...BUT my pointer finger on the other hand (left) was swollen and I could not bend it.
Then my collar bone.
Then the palm of my right hand.
I am thinking allergic reaction and outside of residual soreness in each of the places previously swollen seem to be back to normal. Is that odd or what? Honestly freaked me out. Watching for any other changes since I can't place the allergy...no new foods, soaps, detergents, etc. But for the moment all is well. Whew!

A) My kids.
C) The fun that combining A & B create. But I am saving that for an after Easter post so stay tuned.
D) Living in paradise. I was taking pictures on the beach the other day and I literally can feel my step getting lighter and my stress melting away just by being there. Every breath of salty breezes, every step on sandy ground, and even the palm trees dancing in the wind made me happier. You should love where you live. If you don't you should move.
That building right there is where I plan to retire, right after I save up a million bucks. Can you imagine waking up to that view and walking down to the beach every day? Heaven on earth, I tell you.
E) My yard being repaired. I am not a HUGE fan of this owning thing, its a lot of work and money. But I do take pride in taking care of my things. And am proud of Todd for working so hard on it too...I was worried about how he would handle a yard and he is doing a darn good job. We took down a tree, cropped another one up so it now looks like a tree instead of a giant magnolia bush, replaced some out doors lights, added the ones below, got new sod in a dead area (weed problem!) and laid some mulch...we need to finish but it's getting there!
F) The absolutely fantastic response I got to my "Photos for Danil" week. I have more to come this Friday/Saturday but these are the faces contributing thus far! Thanks again!

-FIVE photo sessions
-dinner with friends
-BBQ with family
Oh and while sitting at the HOA meeting (which was in someones driveway - odd) followed by two Little League games and outdoor photo session I managed to fry my shoulders. I mean F.R.Y. Despite the 3, yes 3, applications of sunscreen. It is so bad it is swollen. And two more sessions at Clearwater Beach in the middle of the day - I think its time to bust out the long sleeve tees!

Go ahead and laugh but it was a Christmas gift from my parents and I love him. His presence means that I have time...because he does not fit in my van's cup holder AND he has to be hand washed. So his appearance means a lazy morning. Granted my lazy morning means I leave at 8 not 6:30 but still nice!
And then we had only ONE game that morning! Amazing! We also got new sod and did massive amounts of yard work. Dinner with my parents Saturday night and a chilled out day at home Sunday rounded out the weekend. Of course the next 3 weekends are ridiculously busy but the simplicity of this one was much needed and much enjoyed!
