1995 was THAT long ago, huh?

In 1995 on this day, at 12:07 pm, I saw this face for the first time. It was love at first sight.

I can't believe that face is 12 years old today. She loves shopping (see our plans below), IMing her friends, her cell phone, listening to music . . . I swear she's been a teenager for years now. But she's still my sweet girl who brightens my day with her pretty smile and makes me laugh with her silliness. I'm so lucky to have her. Happy Birthday, Anna! I love you.

(Raise your hand if you're going shopping at midnight for Black Friday deals.
(I'm asking as I raise my hand).
AKA 'Raise your hand if you're nuts'.
See you there.)

Accidentally deleted my blog (easier than you'd think) while I was creating a new blog and editing it. So unfortunately, it's gone forever.

Here's my new blog :

I haven't post yet, but here it is.

Happy Birthday to your daughter. I don't know what I'll do when my daughter turns 12...probably cry. I was up at 2 AM on Black Friday and in line at Toys R Us (small kids to buy for) at 4:20 AM. It was COLD!!!
