not the only one....

I have posted that I really like Chadwick's clothes. In fact I have even showed you things that I have bought from there. here & here. However I just got so excited because I am not the only one. I just saw a photo of Dakota Fanning and I immediately recognized the shirt she was wearing.
What do you think, it looks like the same shirt right?
(at least close to it!)
I love this shirt, I don't have it, but I love it.

weekend update....

On Thursday, Ollie and I made Josh a birthday cake. Then when Josh got home from work, we went to Applebee's to eat.

On Friday, after school, we dropped the dogs off at the kennel, and headed to Coshocton.We spent the night and left our ducklings at their grandparents on Saturday while Josh and I headed to a wedding in Youngstown.
The wedding was beautiful and we had fun. Josh enjoyed seeing his college friends again.
Sunday we came home.
We spent Monday at home. We grilled out and enjoyed the day at home.
I hope everyone had a nice weekend.

Van's art project.....

Van had to make a clay creature in art class. He decided to combine to creatures like a book they had just read about a duck-rabbit. So Van made his creature a t-rex and a brontosaurs. It has a t rex head and brontosaurs tail he said. He also had to make an habitat for his creature to live in. It had four volcanoes in it.

Good Job Vanny,
I Love it!

Tatum's new favorite.......

She loves popsicles!

Ollie's new hair cut.....

Josh gave Ollie his summer haircut Wednesday night.

The "little black dress"

Untitled by bethcp14 featuring Marc Jacobs Shoes

Ok, well after a couple of months of looking at other peoples' "collections", I have finally made my own. I started looking at dresses and found four that I really liked. It just went from there. I didn't look at any other pages for inspiration so how do you think I did? Do the right shoes and accessories go with the right dresses? That's always the part that I am unsure about. The prices are a little off too, somethings I would not spend that much money on.

Saturday, before Mother's Day

Uncle Bubba and Meghan came to stay with us Friday night and got up early in the morning to go to Petey's t ball game with us.

It was cold!

Ollie all cuddled up on Mommy.

Tatum all balled up too.

Here is uncle Bubba and Meghan. It was very windy.

Then, after the game, Van and Mommy went to the eye doctor. ( We both had app.) I'm going to wear contacts again, it's been about five years!!!

Then, Josh, Van, Tatum, Bubba and Meghan went Mother's day shopping.
I took Petey to a Birthday Party, then Ollie got to spend a couple of hours with Mommy alone.

So, durning Mommy alone time Ollie got to choose what we did. We went to Mac Donald's.
We got ice cream :)

Then, even though it was cold, Ollie wanted to go to the park.

It was fun, but cold, we were not there very long!

Thanks for spending time with me Ollie!

Then when everyone was back together, we ate Fricker's chicken wings. The we said goodbye to Meghan and Bubba.
