Fathers and Daughters!!!

Jasmine has always been daddy's girl and up until a few months ago she was all into the kinds of things he likes. Even though she still is to a certain extent, she's becoming a young lady and has started drifting towards girly things.

She likes the dresses and the pretty tops, the high heels, the earrings and don't let her near make up because she will bombard you with requests for that pretty lip gloss, or the red nail varnish. Yes, a girly girl indeed. Me, I'm ecstatic, I feel like I JUST gave birth to a girl and now we get to play together.

See for most of her life she wanted to do things with daddy, she watches all his movies with him and talks about superheroes and dinosaurs, comic books etc. Inside the stores I would try to pull her towards girl things only to be met with a dismayed NO, she wants to go look at the cars and boy was depressing to say the least but I also knew that she was learning and discovering things so I let it go.

Now that she's into girl stuff, hubby is finding himself a little freaked out, it's hard for a daddy when he sees his little girl growing up.

Yesterday was a perfect example of how out of place he feels with these new things.....we had gone out for the day and Jasmine got herself a new lip gloss set, after returning home the first thing she did was put on the lip gloss, not perfectly I might add because it ended up above and below her lips LOL

She proudly walked up to daddy to talk about something and he said "Have you been eating your crayons?" LOL
I thought I was going to die laughing, I've never laughed so hard in my life.....she just looked at him and said "No daddy, it's lipstick", she found it funny too. I tell you I still chuckle everytime I think about it......oh the wonderful dynamics between dadd
y and daughter is great!

I'm sure you're listening to the beautiful song playing, it's by one of my favorite bands called IL DIVO and it's called Mamma, the words are absolutely beautiful and bring tears to my eyes everytime....the video itself is brilliantly done too and a sure tear jerker. Enjoy!!!

The first thing I did this morning was go visit all the blogs that I've been neglecting, I think I've gotten to them all, but there are some blogs that though they are my favorites, I really never comment. Do you have some like that too???

It's those that you LOVE visiting every morning and admiring the beautiful pictures and wonderful posts but you don't say a peep, for me the reason is that they're usually the ones with tons of comments, 50 or more and I feel like little ol' me will just get lost in the crowd, so I sit in the background, Oohhh and aaaahh about them and just close it down and go on my way.

Last week while when we went to the Boise Zoo we made a wrong turn, shocking I know, and ended up in the middle of Boise. I have to tell you I have been here for almost 9 years and never went into the actual city, yes we went to the mall and the outskirts but never to the middle of town. I am so annoyed with myself for not doing so because it's absolutely stunning.

Boise State Capital

Downtown Boise

It was great driving by the Old Boise Historic District.

If you're brave and hungry enough, you could swing by Big Jud's Country Diner and try to eat their One Pound Big Jud Burger served with One Pound of Fries.....yeah that's MY KINDA PLACE!

Well as much as I would love to stay and chat, there's things that need to be done around here....which makes me wish I was with my brother Paul and his family right now, they're enjoying 2 weeks in Margate, South Africa. One of my FAVORITE vacation spots, boy how I miss it.

You all have a wonderful sunday, it's rainy here so it's indoors for us, popcorn, movies and family time, hopefully some naps in between, one can only hope right???

LOL! Eating your crayons... that's hilarious. Poor little girly girl. She's still little though. Just wait until she wants a cell phone, multiple piercings, and a BOYFRIEND!!! Boo hoo!

I love Il Divo. I think I was the first person in the whole world who bought their first CD, about two seconds after it was released. LOL

I wanted to tell you this. Even when I get a lot of comments on a post, every comment matters and I read each and every single one of them. But I know what you mean. I almost always leave a comment when I've read a post, but if there are already 200 comments, which is REALLY a lot of comments, I usually don't. It gets to where no matter what you say, you're repeating something ten other people already said, right? And you won't know that because I don't know about you, but I don't have time to read 200 comments on someone's post. LOL

Hope you have a good week coming up. Mine's hopefully going to be blissfully quiet.

I'm so for raising girly girls - our society seems to be melting the two sexes together - men are more feminite and women are more masculine, so a little lipgloss sounds sweet to me.

Re the comments, I love leaving comments at blogs that dont get as many, but I try to remember there are hearts behind every one of those posts, even the ones with 50+ - when it gets down to it, we're all just women trying to give our best every day, honoring him in the process.

BTW, I'm again in awe of your template. xoxoxo
