Mommas Got a New Hat....;)

So if ever there was a need for a shout is now.

Trust Me.

I am not a girly girl. I do not have little girls that I can put bows on, paint nails or wear tights. I mean I guess I COULD do that to my boys

(and I am not saying that I have not put them in a dress once or twice..just to see what they would look like)

I digress.
But Today...Today, I BECAME a girly girl!!!

One of my friends Susie is a MAJOR talent in the knitting department.

I mean one day this girl is randomly knitting at the gym and all of a sudden she has a full blown business with some of the MOST adorable models to boot.
Because I have boys I don't get to experience those adorable fabric bows on her knitted hats and its not that I am jealous of all of you with girls (OK I am but...)

I want a fun accessory...Not a purse, or a watch..I want something with personality...


So, one day in passing, I say. I really want a blue hat. One that matches my eyes.

Susie says let me search. Um, folks she did NOT just search. Instead, she found the color that I wanted and then HAND DYED the YARN...

What? Did I mention this could be ♥LOVE♥. It is like my very own personal knitter (Wait...back up..she does not know that...SHHHH)!

My hat is PERFECT!!!!!

So...without further ado.....MY HAT!!!!

Ladies and Gents...You HAVE to do yourself a favor and check out her site: Susie Knits
You will NOT be disappointed!

Welcome to another week of the I♥Faces Fun!!! This week I♥ Faces is celebrating and making a blurb book so, all photos entered have a chance to be in the book. Of course, if I am selected, then I give them full permission to print, copy or post however they see fit.

This photo was taken last fall and I just LOVE the color of the sky with the clouds. I very rarely get a shot like that with the sky so that is my submission for this week!

Good Luck to all who enter this week and hope to see some of you in that little book ;)

I ♥ Faces... Laughter

OK, these photos WERE NOT taken by I am not linking up this week, however I still love these photos sooo much that I wanted to post it and give props to the awesome photographer that took this little doozy! As you can imagine, my family is not the most well behaved bunch so we might be on ridiculously awful slightly difficult side.

The photographer that took these pictures is Mandy Birdwell and you should stop by to check out her site. She is amazing and kiddos just flock to her!

Love the fun, playful side of this photo which kind of really describes all of our personalities at once! These were just 2 of my favorites...but trust me, they are ALL over my house!

Thanks again Mandy almost 2 years later, I'm still loving them!

Good luck to all the contestants who enter this week! Don't forget to stop by I♥Faces this week for all the entries...there are some awesome photos!
