Slice of Lime-Unexpected Gifts

As you know I had (EDIT: as Craver noted in the comments this conjures redneck images. Yikes!) took care of my cousin's son Jacob last weekend. I enjoyed having him here very much. When Lisa came back she surprised me with the lovely necklace I'm wearing in the picture. The picture doesn't quite do it justice but it's all I have right now. It was a sweet bonus. I love it and I love my cousin (even if she didn't bring me jewelry, just so we are clear on that).



Yesterday I had a semi-spontaneous visit from Sweet Pea and her mom. That's always a nice surprise. I got to surprise them back. Some time ago I was informed that Sweet Pea had outgrown the first set of tie dye I had given her. I had some new psychedelic baby duds for her. Here she is in her newest ensemble.


Naturally, we had to pose together each in our tie dye duds. Looking groovy, baby!

What a cutie pie...and ye ain't so bad yourself in that tie-dyed! ;)
I only own 2 tie-dyed shirts.

One was the very 1st item I bought with my own $$ back in high school...needless to say, I don't wear this anymore...but, I kept it to remind me of those days long ago!

My 2nd shirt was given to me by a student last year...it has a nice heart on it and is mostly orange. I really don't do orange...but will keep it just the same! :D

I have my 55 up early since I'm headin up to PA to see my cousins this weekend! Keep cool...

Nice necklace, but a closer look at your cleavage, I mean the necklace would have been better.

ooooooooo
reading after the edit I thought the original sentence was
"I had took care of..."
and I thought that sounded uncharacteristically rednecked.
I see what he was saying though.

:p

Lovely necklace and whata cutie the sweetpea is these days.

awwww. how sweet that baby looks!

And that necklace is lovely!

And you seem to be growing more beautiful with each passing year!

Did Jacob also go home with some new tie died duds, or are those limited to the Oh so adorable Sweet Pea in Pink?

How do you get your colors to set? Mine always seem to fade far too much and soon.

Awww look at her.. how could you not just squish that sweetie pie? I think I'm having baby withdrawal.

Moosekahl said...

She is an adorable sweet pea for sure...

Cheesy said...

Looking almost as cute as me in your tie dye ;-)

I wear it all the time - even when I was at the nude beach today!
