Tween Tuesday

Today's post consists of a few random quotes from conversations with Beanna. Some our chit chats make me laugh out loud while others simply leave me amazed at my beautiful daughter.
"I hope I don't have to poo, because I will not poo on the plane."
This one made me laugh out loud when we she announced this shortly after we took our seats for our flight from San Francisco to PA.
"Why would anyone throw a baby in the garbage? That's not right at all."
This topic came up while watching Breaking Amish on TLC. We talked about this topic a little further and as usual my heart swelled at the compassion and empathy my daughter has for others.
"What kind of business woman doesn't have tape?"
This one came when Bea was with me at work this afternoon and she couldn't find tape at my desk. I told her to check my other co-worker's cube after which Bea told me not only does she not have tape but she doesn't have a stapler either; our business…

Monday motivator

Just like anyone else Monday is not my favorite day but hey it is what it is, like it or not we have to get through it! I've learned over the years that reading something positive or even at times humorous can really help shape the day I will have and wanted to share that here with all of you as a way to jump start the week.
I know this may come across a little cheesy but close your eyes and take a deep breath and slowly let it out (trust me this works), now read the quote below and at some point today take a moment to reflect on how it relates to you.

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.

Greetings from Ellie

Hi Friends!
Do you like my new coat? My daddy bought it for me when mommy and sis went to visit him in beautiful Tunkhannock, PA last week. I stayed home with mommy's friend Chelsea who treated me like the total princess I am for 6 days! I'm soo happy mommy and sis are back, I even did a little happy dance when they picked me up.
Mommy has still been super busy, so I thought I'd help her by posting a quick entry to let you know she hasn't forgot about you, so please sit tight because she will be back at it soon.
Well time for me to snuggle in for the night, thank you for stopping by and showing support for mom's new hobby...BLOGGING!!
XOXOXO - Ellie

Is that what I think it is

After last week's "what's in your bag"post I saw this in my friend's bag the next morning.
LOL yess that's a huge Costco bag of salad! I about died laughing at yet another random item in her Louis Vuitton.
Because of the randomness of her bag contents and my curiosity of what other ladies may be carrying around I decided I will be posting new silly purse findings on Wednesdays. Stay tuned I'm sure we will be amused by what some of my other friends have in their procession.

Tween Tuesday

The other day driving home from school Beanna told me when she grows up she will have a foster kid (her words). I asked her what made her want a foster child and I have to say her response made me proud. Her reasoning behind wanting to be a foster parent was simple enough..."some kids need a good home and I want to give him or her one." She went on to tell me that one of her friends has a foster sister that the family treats as their own which is important because nobody wants to feel left out just because they're not blood related. I told her I agree completely, that blood isn't always what makes a family but rather the love we have for one another.
B and I talked quite a bit on the foster child subject with her pointing out that it's not a child's fault that they end up with "bad parents" and get taken away because after all they didn't ask to be born. This discussion left me warm and fuzzy. My daughter is wise beyond her years when it comes …
