* where did all that bling go? …

Goodevening my favorite peeps! Hope you’ve all had a gloriously wonderful Monday … your blog composer had a fairly good day at work, for a Monday anyway, so I’m not going to complain. I am just grateful to have a job & the fact that I like my job is a huge bonus. I do however have a slight problem … I have no earthly idea what to blog about tonight. I’ve thought long & hard about it, ok not really but lets pretend I did, and nothing of much importance comes to mind. However, Chrisi, my oldest daughter, had a very exciting day! She got her braces off today. She no longer looks like a 12 year old college student. Of course, I thought she looked beautiful with them but her smile is even prettier now. My only worry is this, I knew for an absolute fact because she is so vain concerned with her looks that she would not ponder the idea of marriage as long as she was wearing braces. What girl could have wedding pictures made while wearing braces? Can’t happen I tell ya! So now do I need to start being concerned that she may start plotting I mean planning a wedding? I would really really prefer she finish college first, but I must say, I am very fond of her beau Randall. He is the guy all us mother’s want our daughters to date and one day marry when they are grown, college grads who are financially independent, off our medical insurance, employeed & stable … but not one minute before then. Just like her mama did … not! ok, so I got confused, it is “Not Me Monday” ya know!

Chrisi with no braces! Isn’t she beautiful?


and because I cannot show any preference when it comes to my daughters … This is Anna & Leroy, isn’t she beautiful too?


I am one more blessed mama!

    Melinda, you have two very beautiful daughters…inside and out. You have every reason in the world to be proud of them. You have done an amazing job guiding them into the beautiful women they have become.
