Felt like drawing! One thing led to another, and this “work of art” is what came out of my daughter’s request for a drawing of her favorite bird …


It came out really good. I’m just as shocked as you are! Now she wants me draw her a peacock!!! Wish me luck. 🙂

I’ve been slacking on my blog posts. Not because I’m lazy. I’ve just been insanely busy at work and in life. But I have been having tons of fun. And one of those fun filled days happened to be on Thanksgiving. This day started at 4am. Yup. 4am people. We did our annual pilgrimage to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. And if you want a good spot in the front with an unobstructed view from big heads and children’s butts perched on top of their parents shoulders, you MUST rise and shine earlier than the sun does. But I guarantee, every minute of lost sleep, and the countless hours of waiting for the parade to begin is worth it!

This year I also took my “other daughter” Bianca. She’s really just my daughter’s best friend,but I love her as if she were my own. And after a night of giggling, they finally fell asleep at midnight, only to be up ay 4am. And if you can believe it,, they woke up bright eyed and bushy tailed. So without further ado, here are some of the pictures I took that day. Begins with the girls in their sleeping bags at 5am, and ends with the gluten free dinner I made right after I got home from the parade. That’s right people!!! You heard me. After the day I had, I ran home and cooked Thanksgiving dinner as well that day. And I put up the Christmas tree and was relaxing by 6pm. Supermom you might be thinking. You’re thinking right. I rock as a  mom!!! Enjoy!
