I am watching the Oscars right now. Are any of you? I think there are soooo many pretty dresses! I can't wait to see the fashion re-caps tomorrow. Everyone looks great! Some favorites are Zoe Saldana, Jennifer Lopez, and Amanda Seyfried. Hollywood, you have my approval! ;)
Okay, this weekend was busy. Seriously, busy.
Friday, my Mom and I decided to go to Cottontails Craft Show. It was a crazy place. All of those Moms and their babies and their strollers-they were serious shoppers, which earned them the nickname "Stroller Nazis". Seriously, they were all on a mission. There were so many cute oufits for little girls. So cute. I had fun. I bought this beautiful creation and I put some of my jewelry on it. I just loved it.
We had beautiful weather yesterday. I sat outside in the sun for just a little bit, while my parents worked in the yard. Holly was outside all day and she was sooo exhausted last night because she didn't take a nap. She was so cute. She was introduced to Pepsi yesterday-don't ask how!- and she loves it! Who knew?! I didn't take any pictures but she was so cute running around outside. She was just so curious about everything. She cracks me up. No photos, though.
Today we took my Dad out for his birthday to his favorite mexican restaurant, La Paz. I don't really like Mexican food but I do like La Paz. I ordered some Gaucamole...yummy!Well, my new friends blog Jenny and Erin have asked their new blog pals to answer some questions and try to get to know one another a little better. Here are answers to Jenny's questions.
1. Do you have any nicknames? Explain. :)
Only a few people call me by my nickname - Hyder. (Pronounced High-dir.) When my sister was little she couldn't say Heather and Hyder is what came out when she tried. It was so cute and it stuck. At 22 and 26, we still sometimes call one another Hyder and Hay-Hay. (Because that is what came out when she tried to say her own name, Haley.) I love our nicknames! :)
2. If you could choose one of your personality traits to pass onto your children, what would it be?
Oh, good question! Um, well I think I would want to pass on my optimism. I am a pretty optimistic person and I am really thankful for that.
3. If you could have any celebrity for a father and mother, who would you pick?
Paul Newman and Doris Day or Julie Andrews
4. Name your 3 favorite blogs.
Another good one but hard! ha!
5. What did you want to be when you were growing up?
My first memory of saying what I wanted to be when I grew up was when I was 9 or 10. I remember telling people that I wanted to be a "Missionary Teacher". I don't know if they understand what I meant but I had a clear vision in my head. I wanted to be a teacher in another country and tell others about Jesus. Needless to say, I am not a Missionary Teacher.
Thank you Jenny.
Thank you Jenny.
Have a great week, everyone!
You can never repay all you have been by the Creator. Accept the gifts. Live and share them.
