paris markets and baby girls

paris market
Hi girlie pies!  OMG.. I have to admit that it is getting harder for me to keep up with blogging.. but dont worry.. Im not throwing in the towel.. You know me, I just keep on keeping on. or at least I try to!  (until I hit a brick wall! LOL!)
pm 2
Yesterday Jennifer, Tiffany, marla pie and I went out for the afternoon for a little fun shopping.  there was a little artsy flea market set up in an old theatre in rochester called the "Paris Market"  It was quite sweet.. but a little disappointing as it was 5.00 to get in and oh so very small. None of us bought anything, but I figured if I got some good pics Id be happy.  plus it was amusing and pretty to look at.   And of course we had gone out to lunch at a lovely bakery and went to the parkleigh which is a fun store to look through.
pm 3
And we made a stop at Joanns to buy teddy bear eyes..  lots of bear orders going on here...
pm 6
I wish I had bought this pillow cause I loved it!    I saw some neat halloween pillows at the christmas tree store yesterday too...  Oh gosh.. I have to get my head out of the halloween clouds and get focused on these bear orders!! Yikes!  halloween just keeps popping in!!
pm 7
Arent these candle holders beautiful?  I snapped this pick to show Vanessa to see if its something she thinks we could make to go on the tables at their wedding.   speaking of the wedding.. .  yikes... 5 weeks from today!!  OH girlies please do pray that I would get ambitious and lose some more weight by then!  (Im serious about that! praying that is..)
So just look at this dolly pie!  is she not gorgeous?  I know Im a little tiny bit biased...   I know..   but really....
omg.. love her to pieces!little miss princess pie
just look at the face!  OMG!!  I love her to freak'n pieces!

I love all of my family so much...  sometimes I think I might just burst my heart!  I guess we'll be having a cook out on monday here for labor day and big tonys birthday.  though... the weather doesnt look very promising for monday.  well.. what ever.. If we have to cook inside..  At least I have this:
new oven 
A brand new oven!  I came home Thursday night late after work and a couple other stops.  tony wasnt home and I had no clue where he was.  It was dark in the house and when I walked in the kitchen and turned on the light there was this big surprise!  Hubby bought me a new oven!  lol!  I was pretty shocked and boy did I need a new one.  He can be such a good boy.   I think he loves me... I think I'll keep him. 
Ok.. on that note.. I have stacks of clothing on my kitchen table for bear making.....  and Im about to sign off this computer for the day.  
Happy  Weekend!! Happy Labor day!!  (though Im sad that summer is trying to come to an end...  )

Congrats on the new oven! I hope you have nice weather for your cookout. We are going to the beach tomorrow, even though it is going to be cooler. Isn't that the way it goes? It's been hot all week and I have been looking forward to the beach. Oh well, we will still have fun.

I love that you got a surprise new oven!
If anyone had told you when you were 18 that someone giving you an oven as a gift would get you excited, you would have never believed it.

I love the stuff in the photos!
