We're pretty much officially dating.  Details to come, but that's all I can do now because I'm packing up to head to Kentucky tomorrow for a weekend with the family.  I can't wait to cuddle up my cousins new baby, and grab my other neices and nephews for lots of hugs and kisses. 

My neice turned 4 last week and when I asked her what she'd like for her birthday, she told me she wanted something "purple and sparkly." 

So there were my marching orders!  It was a big improvement though, compared to her Christmas present request which was "A big girl thing--something that moves."  Try asking the people at Wal-Mart where THAT is located ;)

I got her press-on nails with princess images and glitter.  Yeah.  She's so going to be my new BFF.

I may get to see a friend or two this weekend, but I doubt it.  I'll probably focus on the family, which is just fine with me.  I am excited about how excited THEY are to see me, and I'm glad I am making a real effort to get there every couple of months.  It helps make it seem like less of a distance, and I still get all my perks of living in the city while remaining connected to what's happening there.

In the meantime, I have someone here who makes me smile.  And that's enough for me.

you said "focus on the family." I feel like I don't know you at all. ;)

Oh, girl! I am so thrilled! A sweet man to hold hands with, and babies to cuddle. Enjoy your weekend!

Your niece sounds so much like my daughter. :)

Happy times, girl. Have plenty of them this weekend. Get all the baby sugar you can.
