IV REAL

So last night I went on pretty much the most amazing girl's night of all time...

We went to see the So You Think You Can Dance concert!! FOR REAL!

"But, Kim...is that all you have been doing since the last time you blogged..." you ask?

And to that, my reply is simply, "Read on, my friend...read on."

At the end of September, we went on a kid-free trip to Chicago to take in a Bears game. We also took some time to go on an architectural tour and do some shopping.

Here's a shot of yours truly on the Chicago River. The weather was so perfect!

"Well, Kim...what did you go shopping for in Chicago?" Good question. Keep reading.

I bought my little satin dress for my TEN YEAR HIGH SCHOOL Reunion!!

Last weekend we went to good old Hermosa Beach for my reunion, and had a really great time. I am so glad that I went!

We also just basically enjoyed yet another kid-free weekend, this time at the beach. The weather wasn't exactly perfect...but it was cool, and I wasn't complaining one bit!!

And now, of course...no blog would be complete without a little update on the girls, right? Well, check it out....

I have been trying for months now to capture one shot...both girls, both looking at the camera, good lighting, and no red-eye. And....I finally got it! Not once, but twice! Here are my favorite pics of the girls thus far:


Ava has also been very interested in make-up lately. Here she is, working on getting her mascara just right. That's a trip to the hospital waiting to happen, I'm sure.


Ava also got a little house in the backyard. She is always inviting me to come to "Ava's house".

And Ella..... sweet, sweet Ella. All I can say is, I'm ruined. I can never have another baby again because it's all downhill after how easy this baby has been. She's just an absolute angel.

And, I know this is a random way to end my post, but I have been playing with Play-Doh quite a bit lately. Here is my latest and greatest creation. Feel free to be impressed. Or, to think I'm crazy and have way to much free time on my hands. The nose is my favorite... lol.

So fun! I went to my reunion too...crazy! Can we please get together soon? It might not be as cool as your recent GNO but I'm sure we can think of something.

The dress looks amazing, the girls are adorable and you had to time to make a perfect play-dough nose...great job! Looks like fun times.

You get an A+ for your outfit choices for your reunion :). You looked awesome! I still have that bag of stuff I keep forgetting to give you btw.

p.s. - I want to formally adopt Ella after seeing her sit happily through Rachel's baptism without a peep. (And Ava for saying "Oh Katers, your shirt is soooo pretty" during the prayer)

You're too cute!! I bet Ava had fun playing play-doh with you...at least I HOPE you were playing with Ava and you just weren't getting the play-doh out for you to play with. If so, you need ANOTHER kid-free weekend!! : ) Looks like you've had some fun!! Wish I could have joined you!!
