Bella picks a tree


I’m a tad bit late in posting these, but better late than never!  Bella had a pretty great time picking out our Christmas tree.

I’m not sure what Bella thinks about all these plastic yard figurines.

These are supposed to make us feel “merry”??


And of course, we found some little special trees, just for Bella.

if I want to see my husband on sundays…


Patrick’s favorite thing in life, with the exception of his family, is football.  Specifically, the Steelers.  In fact, it’s a good thing we’re not having a boy because I’m pretty sure he’d want to name him Steeler.

I’m completely serious.

As you can see, he’s had Bella in Steeler gear since the very beginning…

So during football season, we’ve all learned to make a lot of compromises.  Patrick doesn’t watch nearly as much football as he did as a single man.  And if we want some quality family time on Sundays, we head to Patrick’s mecca: Buffalo Wild Wings.

Bella had on her Steelers t-shirt, but in true game-time fashion, she decided she couldn’t leave the house without her fairy princess costume on top.


Such joy on my hubbie’s face.  Bella seems to have lost her enthusiasm.

Thank God for wifi.

And just to prove I was there…

This is my game face.  Pun intended.  Counting down the days until football season is O-V-E-R.

fashionista or fashion victim


New York Daily News recently ran an article, “Fashion Overkill, When Stars Wear a Trend to Death.”  Evidently, folks are tired of Kim Kardashian and her one-armed cocktail dresses.

Now, Bella isn’t allowed to watch the Kardashians.  (I have to sneak and watch them when she’s asleep.)  Nonetheless, she’s managed to channel her inner Kim Kardashian, and has embraced this one-armed look.

But wait, there’s more….

Is she working it, or what?!?!

Yes, 3 days in a row, I’ve looked up to find Bella sporting this new “signature look.”

Do I love it?  Of course!

My budding fashionista…mama is so proud.
