This Girl's in the House

My sister's house, that is. Just hanging out with some of my favorite people in the world. Nothing special to celebrate. Simply just because. It was a fun night just to kick back, have a few laughs (or A LOT) and eat some yummy chicharrones (that's carnitas in Costa Rican lingo). My friend Monica really hit the jack pot when she married a sweet guy named Juan Carlos. This is one throwdown Bobby Flay would DEFINETLY lose CAUSE THIS BOY CAN COOK! It was a fun packed day for me; some yard saling in the morn'n, LOTS of shopping with my gals (hince all the frou-frou), and endless laughs with my best friends. It couldn't have gotten any better.

Most moms have an obsession of photographing their families that they rarely are ever seen coming out from behind the camera. That's why Carin @ Forever in Blue Jeans created a new challenge for all blogging mamas. It's called 52 Weeks. Every week moms will be stepping away from their cameras and sharing the spotlights with their loved ones. Looking through my photos, I discovered that it's so true. I'm missing in action in most of the shots. And really it doesn't bother me one bit. Well......maybe just a little. I would have to say that when I look at pictures of me growing up, my favorites aren't the ones of me alone. They're the ones that capture me with my family, especially my parents. So, I'm excepting the challenge.

What a fun challenge... I guess I will have to let my boys tinker with my expensive equipment if I ever want pictures of myself! (LOL!)

I joined your blog and thanks for joining mine! You are adorable! I will attempt photos of myself today... but that would mean I would have to get dressed today (sob!)

It sounds like a great day! You all look so much a like...I would've guessed you were all sisters. Nice photo...good for you remembering to take one. And by the way...30's not bad. I cried when I turned 30 and now I am a few short years from 40 wondering what was so bad about the three-oh. Happy birthday and Happy Mother's Day.
