Before I was Born...Pink & Green Thursday

Lately, Mini #1 has been obsessed with older pictures of Mr. and I (there are no new pictures of us...we only take pictures of the children.) There is one in particular from our rehearsal dinner that he likes to move around the drives me nuts. Yesterday, I was explaining when that was taken and talking about our wedding.

He was asking why he wasn't there and I was explaining the timeline and that we were married "a long time ago before you were born."

I pulled out the BIG photo album from our wedding and he studied it. He was pointing out various family members and friends.

We got to a picture of Mr. and I on that glorious day almost 6 years ago and he looked at me and said "Mom, you were more pretty before I was born."

I just laughed. (You know the saying, if you don't laugh, you'll cry.)

Yes, yes my sweet boy, I was more pretty all those years ago when I was young, thinner, and only had myself to worry about.


Wish I could be sipping one of these with my best girlfriends tonight while LOVING the new Sex and the City movie! Enjoy girls!

Also, head over to the sweet and lovely Trish who I just adore from Pink Preppy Lilly Lover who started Pink and Green Thursdays and is one that I totally wish I was seeing Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda with tonight. She is hosting a Lilly giveaway that you must check it out! Go on over now!

Happy Thursday! Have a great day!


  1. Haha, your little one is so funny! {I am laughing so I won't be crying for you} A friend of mine was just telling me about what her little girl said to her as she was getting out of the shower yesterday "Mommy, I love your really big butt" ... I mean, how do you respond to that?

    I am headed over to check out that Lilly give away!

  2. That cocktail looks divine...Do you guys have big weekend plans?
    That Mini is sooo funny. The whole concept of "before you were born" is difficult to grasp!! I remember being so confused which my sister took advantage of and told me over and over again that I wasn't in the photos because they found me behind the movie theater...

  3. Your little one is so funny. But I know exactly what you mean by, If you don't laugh, you'll cry. I think I'm going to keep my wedding pictures safely away so that I don't have to have the conversation about why I look so different now.

  4. Hi sweetie! How are you my long lost friend? Oh how I miss you so much, thank you for your sweet kind emails, your comments absolutely made my week this week! I am so very happy to finally be home, these long weeks on the road wear me out!

    I wish I was coming over right now for a day of fun with you, we could shop, girl talk, see SATC2 (I WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO SEE IT WITH YOU!) and we could top it all off with some fabulous cosmos!

    Mini #1 is funny. I think you are gorgeous inside and out! Love you friend, let's catch up over the weekend if you're free, hope you have something fabulous planned :) xoxoxox

  5. You are so right... if you didn't laugh, you would cry. My 11yo and I were in Target and I showed him a pair of short shorts in the Juniors dept. "Mom," he said slowly and deliberately, "You're um just a little, you know, um too um big for those."

    I think I need a Crystal Lite Cosmo right now. LOL


How I love comments...thanks for stopping by and sharing what you are thinking. Cheers!
