Stacey’s 365 Project- Day 220

It is the last week before school starts and my daughter wants to spend it with friends. How can you say no? I know soon we will all be in the rush of going from here to there and trying to get homework done with not enough time in the day, so I can't say no, but I can make them take a few pictures first! These girls went shopping last week for school clothes and got all the same things, not matchy-matchy, just the same styles-different colors. They are so excited (and nervous) to start high school in a...

Stacey 365 Project- Day 206

I find this picture amusing, not for it's content but for the story behind it. We have a common tradition when family from out of state come to town, we take them to see alligators of course! Everyone knows Florida is known for its alligator population, and our out-of-town guests always want to see them. Of course we know a place that you are guaranteed to see them, and that is at Paynes Prairie's La Chua Trail. We always enjoy seeing the alligators too, contrary to popular believe alligators are not just meandering along Florida streets. However, from the time I was in...

So I commented, and I won! The catch, it was only good for this...

Piggy Prom

Tonight is "Piggy Prom" as it is affectionately called at Fort Clarke Middle School, where when you become an 8th grader you are a part of "Fat City" and a now referred to as Pigs. It has been this way since I attended there many years ago. Although, when I attended there we had a dance, nothing fancy, Sunday dresses mostly. This is my daughter and a few friends that came to my house for pre-prom photos (don't you love that both boys are wearing pink!) My daughter and I stayed up late making this sign for the photoshoot. Besides...

Stacey’s 365 Project- Day 142

My mom bought my little one a stuffed Bernese Mountain dog for getting good grades. It came in the mail today, and was a surprise. Needless to say she LOVES it. She decided it needed to go on a bike ride with her, and apparently he enjoyed himself. Scout, after his namesake (my mom's dog) rode very well and he is a happy camper.
