Missed Opportunities + Missing Teeth

Last week Emberly's class had a 70s day.  But it completely slipped our minds until the night before when we did not have enough time to take her braids down so that she could rock a 'fro.  You guys, she has an awesome afro.

So, I'm not sure her denim on denim outfit had quite the 70s ring to it that it would have had with her hair in an afro, but, we missed the opportunity.
Also, baby girl is refusing to wiggle that top front tooth on out of her mouth.  It's just barely hanging in there, crooked, and it looks like she's already missing a top tooth.  It makes for a memorable smile!

My dirty broken mirror in the garage really sucks.  I should consider taking my camera somewhere to see if the self timer button can't be fixed!  In the meantime, some quick selfies from the last two weeks!

Here are a few more pictures from the yacht wedding in Newport Beach.  Why?  Well, because I took them.

End of Summer Wedding

Damon and I went to a wedding in Newport Beach Labor Day weekend.  First, I had to get pull-ups for Bauer.  We're supposed to be transitioning to undies for sleep when we ran out of our current pack, but wouldn't you know that event ended up coinciding with this trip and I didn't want to put that burden on my sister-in-law who was watching him while we were out having adult fun.  So I went to the awful-est Wal-Mart I've ever been to (let's face it, they're all pretty awful) because I wasn't familiar enough with the area to know where else to go.  I was in the store nearly an hour.  To purchase pull-ups.  Insert me looking at the time on my phone every five seconds, imagining myself ripping the package open and emphatically throwing pull-on diapers at everyone around me in the check out.
On top of rushing, it was unusually warm for the LA area.  So I sweat like I worked out.  Using hot tools in my hair was not going to be fun; not to mention how easy it is to put make up on a sweaty face.
But I managed to calm down and cool down and get ready in 30 minutes less than I'd wanted to give myself!
