Ten on Tuesday

I have to admit, these are fun to do! 

1. Little Bit and I have an all girls weekend planned! Steven is helping to host a bachelor party in PA on Saturday so Sophie and I are going to ride up with him. Then the plan is to ditch him and Oscar and head to my aunt's house. We plan on doing some shopping and I'll be learning what's currently "in style" from my two cousins. I'll also be learning how NOT in style I currently am. Although Sophie does look pretty hip.

2. The transition into the big girl room at day care is not going well. This morning Little Bit informed her daddy that, "PJ go bye, bye. I go see Brenda." Yikes.

3. We are 10 days away from the beach, YES!

4. Sophie now has a Dora big wheel thanks to GiGi and PaPa. The thing has more bells and whistles than a Mercedes S class. And unlike a Mercedes S class, it speaks Spanish. 

5. I finally found Sophie a white dress to take pictures on the beach. I must be a lunatic because this year I am going to attempt to take photos of all 5 grandkids on the beach. I think I'll title that little project, "Mission Impossible."

6. Speaking of photos, my friend Jenny has volunteered to be my pregnant ginny pig. I'm going to attempt to take some maternity shots for her. I've already warned her that out of 200 shots, I might get 2 or 3 keepers.

7. I have Friday off because it's "West Virginia Day." I plan on getting a pedicure with my mom, possibly hitting the pool, and yes Sophie will be at daycare. 

8. I went to the doctor today and learned that I weigh 12 more pounds this year than I did this time last year. That's definitely a bummer but I'm sure that I won't lose too much sleep over it. 

9. Steven put together Sophie's new doll house bookcase for her big girl room over the weekend. It's definitely the most adorable piece of furniture in our house and even even looks cooler in person than it does online! 

10. And finally, our most exciting news this week. About 30 minutes ago, we booked 2 roundtrip tickets to Puerto Rico!!! So come December 13-20 I'll be laying on the beach for my fourth wedding anniversary! We are going back to the place we got hitched, the El Conquistador.

Here are my peeps after dinner this evening. Oscar is seriously like 2 times the size of Little Bit but size definitely doesn't matter. Girlfriend tells that poor dog when to jump!
