A bloggy visit!

Sunday, December 28, 2008

Several of you asked about the shirt below that Bagel gave me for my birthday. I decided to contact the company to see if they'll give me a little discount to pass onto my blog readers...As soon as I hear back (either way:), I will tell you where you can order them!

Oh and I never let the boys shoot the nerf guns in the house..they are outside toys for those of you who were surprised!

I will post more Christmas soon but we have been relaxing with friends, entertaining quite a bit and hanging out as a family. Today, we had a nice visit from Jennifer and her family.  

We dropped in on Jennifer in August when we were moving to Texas but we did not get to meet her husband and her sons then (they were at work and school).  They are such a kind family!  Our boys had a great time playing Wii, nerf guns and legos.  They really got along great and were sad to part ways.  Richard really snuck into Miss Kate's heart and she was flirting shamelessly with him. She also climbed right into beautiful Miss Jennifer's lap.  Jennifer and I really have a lot in common and have such similar taste.  I really wished we lived closer.






It is somewhat ironic that Jennifer came to visit today because just yesterday I was trying to pull off one her best fashion looks. Jennifer and Denise always look so cute in these tees with long sleeve tees under them. My friend, Bagel gave me the above t-shirt for my birthday and I thought it would look cute with a pale pink tee under it. I LOVE the shirt Bagel gave me! But I think the double Tee look is best for my tall friends like Jennifer and Denise. Thank you Bagel!


  1. Bagel is so sweet! I love the T-shirt! It's so cute!

    Jennifer :)

  2. LOVE the shirt.. I love Jennifer's tees.. She always finds the cutest shirts...
    I am sooo happy you got to visit with them..
    Wish I could meet you both..

    Have a Great Week..

  3. I am so glad you all are having such a great time with friends and family, Kim!! Happy New Year!!! I think of you in your new city for a brand new year and wish you all the best!!

  4. It looks like you and your family had a wonderful Christmas - I'm so glad! I MUST get one of those shirts...where????!!!

  5. What a great time....Jennifer is so sweet...they seem like such a fun loving family...I love visiting her blog!!

    The Tshirt is so cute.....I love it and you could pull off any look you wanted to!!

    Happy New Year!


  6. Love the t-shirt!!! Can you tell me who makes them? I'd love to order one for myself and for my sister.

  7. Thank you for letting us pop in yesterday! It was so much fun, and the boys have definitely found some new friends. Thanks for sharing Miss Kate with us and letting us get some lovin' from that sweet little girl. Hope to see you again soon!!

  8. btw...I want to know where she found that t-shirt too! I think it would fit in nicely with my collection lol... I think you pull off any look just fine. Go for it!!!

  9. Five boys & all those toys. I am sure it was busy at your house! Cute Tee. Terri

  10. Ironically, I was JUST thinking that about Jennifer when I saw her in that t shirt!!! She had the cutest one for Christmas too; she is just too cute!!

    I LOVE your new t though & I am sure that you looked adorable in your layered tees..... :)

    Fun to have a visit from Jennifer & her whole family!!!

  11. The shirt is adorable, Kim... as are all your pictures! I love the ones in front of the tree! What fun family traditions you all have. The nutcrackers are fabulous. I also love the idea of homemade pizza on Christmas Eve - it's fun to eat as well as to make together. Kate cracks me up with the apron & no clothes. :) Too cute.


    PS. I use my 50mm 1.4 lens for indoor... I can get great pictures with no flash even in dim lighting! LOVE this lens! Aperture 1.4, ISO 800, shutter 1/50 or 1/60. The shutter speed was a little low but I didn't want to use ISO 1600 because it really makes the photos grainy.

  12. What 2 cute bloggy families you all are. You could so pull the t-shirt off.

  13. I love the t-shirt and so think you CAN pull off the short sleeve over long look. Do you know where bagel got the shirt? I'd love to get it as a gift for me and many various friends!

    We miss you too and would love to have a playdate!

  14. Hi Kim!
    Your Christmas pictures are all so beautiful! I'm certain it was one of "the best ever"!, which by the way is so great to hear after all your family has been through! Let the memories begin.... :)
    That's so great that you had Jennifer and her family in your home! Five little guys with Nerf guns....how brave you are!! haha
    Love the t-shirt, it looks cute on you and the pizza pictures are so fun!
    Blessings to you in the new year ahead!!

  15. Looks like you had a great time! And what a cute t-shirt!

  16. cute, cute t-shirt, what a great gift for girlfriends....might be searching that one or seeing if I can do it on my embroidery machine!!

    Glad you had fun with your friend, I would have never thought I would make so many nice friends on-line, but it has really allowed me to make some amazing cherished friendships that has really helped us go through this adoption journey.

  17. The layered shirt look is so cute on you as well as the others. Go for it!

    Your visit looks fun...seems we have similar gifts at our house. My boys have been playing lego star wars and nerf guns since Christmas. My hubby thought I was crazy to buy the nerf guns but they are small and the boys (big & small) are having a great time.

    How on earth do you entertain during the holidays? I get so worn out I just can't imagine it. Maybe that's because I am hosting family. I might feel differently about entertaining if I wasn't busy with them.

    I hope your holiday fun continues!

  18. How fun! My boys LOVE Nerf guns as well! I love the layered t-shirt look as well on my girlfriends. It is not a look that I can pull off though!

  19. I love seeing pics of you and Jennifer together! Glad you were able to have a fun visit together. One of these days all of us have to get together for a big bloggy reunion!

    Love the shirt and of course you can pull it off...you look good in anything my friend~

  20. Love your Christmas photos! Looks like some good memories have been made in your new home.

  21. love the pictures.....and I soooooownat one of those shirts....email me where I can get one! ;)

  22. It sounds like you guys had a great time with Jen's family! I love the idea of actually getting to meet my blogger friends-- hopefully we can meet someday. Anyway, cant wait to see more pics.

    Christy :)

  23. The shirt is adorable!!!! That look is very much me...I'm a layering girl : ) probably because I live in freezing cold Chicago.
    The kids look like they were having such a good time. How nice for them to get together for a little Wii and nerf shooting (My boys used to love nerf guns too)
    You look cute in what ever you wear...:)

  24. It looks like a great visit from your friends. Will & Harry look like they have made life-long friends.

    I just love that t-shirt! How sweet of you to ask for a discount.

    Happy New Year, Kim!

  25. I love that shirt too! You should check out my friend's stuff for the kiddos! Her stuff is PRECIOUS! www.emtannerdesigns.com

  26. That t-shirt is SO cute! I want one too. Can you email me where to get one?! I'm sure you look great in the layered look! Love all your Christmas pictures.
