1) My new car. It’s cute, no?

(P.S. Those are 30-day temporary tags. Don’t stalk me.)

From the side

From behind

2) My oldest friend, Christina. I got to see her, her husband, and their 7-month-old daughter yesterday when they stopped in to see me for a few hours on their way back to Ohio. Since our mothers were friends before we were born, Christina and I have literally known each other since we were babies. I was her maid of honor when she got married last summer.

Christina and Zan

3) Lily, Christina’s daughter and my goddaughter. I’m obsessed with her big blue eyes.

4) This cute shirt that I bought on sale at Guess? a few weeks ago.

The shirt

More photos are available on Flickr: me tickling Christina, thoroughly tickled, and two more of Lily.

(I spent at least 20 minutes last night looking for the cord that connects my digital camera to the computer. I was convinced it was a black cord. I looked past the white cord at least five times. I searched my room. I was getting desperate! I can’t post pictures! I’ll have to order a new cord! What a pain! Then I came across the white cord again. Oh, that is the right one. I was so relieved to have “found” it that I couldn’t get mad. I guess stuff like that happens when I look for things at 1:30 in the morning.)

(You can thank Denise for this five-obsessions entry. She tagged me.)

    Gosh that’s weird, the Civic here in Europe doesn’t look like that one at all!!! Check it at:

    I saw my baby goddaughter yesterday, she’s 17 months old, sh’es my cousin’s daughter. I feel exactly the same way, I have her for fun, and mommy changes the diapers and wakes up in the night ha ha ha.

    Speaking of hot, when I was pulling into my neighborhood yesterday there were men jogging everywhere. I mean 10-12 of them. Not just ANY men either. HOT fireman from the station down the block. Wow!

    The new car is SWEET!

    And I thought the same thing as Marie D. Someone in our building owns a silvery blue one of the European version. It’s SO NICE.

    The shirt is cute, but I’M obsessed with the necklace. Where did you get it? What’s it made of? How much was it? How can it be mine? Etc.

    You know, I was talking to someone else about this ages ago but assuming I get my butt to Chicago for BlogHer there are a couple of who want to go underwear shopping. (Because, if you don’t already know, I’m all about the underwear.)
