Day 104 - Vietnam, Wildflowers and Pouting...

{I am going back to numbering my posts from now on...like I did in 2010...I like to look back at old posts to see what we were doing at certain times of the year...the numbering will help me do that without having to think too hard :o) Haha!}

We had another day of beautiful weather here in Central Arkansas. Yay! There is something about nice, warm day :o)

Between MDO and carpool, we stopped by Target {I HEART Target} to get little man (and of course, a few things for the girls!) some new clothes. It seems like he has been growing so fast lately! I bought him size 24 month shirts...whoa!

On the topic of new clothes...I am in LOVE with the new clothing companies on Facebook. LOVE! I recently order little white peter pan shirts for each of the girls and I was so excited to find these labels pinned to the sleeves...

I LOVE all things Vietnam :o) I decided to check the tags on a few of my other "wins" and noticed everything was made in Vietnam! I totally knew buying from Vietnam and selling here in America was a good idea after traveling to Vietam in 2007. Hubby and I joked about leaving our clothes in Vietnam and filling our suitcases with smocked dresses :o) I like to shop, but I am pretty thrifty. In Vietnam, I could go shopping and come back with bags and bags of goodies for like $50...it was amazing! I bought tons of smocked outfits for the girls...I wish I would have bought more! I guess that is just another reason to visit Vietnam soon :o) Ha!

There are so many things I LOVE about living in the country...one of those being WILDFLOWERS! When we lived in a neighborhood, it was NOT cool to have weeds wildflowers growing in your yard :o) Here in the country, it is WAY cool :o)

I couldn't help but smile when I saw this beautiful bouquet sitting on Hillary Ashton's bookshelf this afternoon :o)

Today was a trying day for me and this little princess...

My two older girls have expressed lots of emotions throughout the years, but pouting is not one of them. This girl is a major pounter and if she is slightly unhappy with any situations, she will let you and anyone within earshot know. Honestly, it drives me crazy. The above picture was taken last Saturday...this was her reaction to us not letting her go spend the night with her grandparents in Texarkana. She got it in her mind that she wanted to go and that was that! She pouted for a good thirty minutes...I can just see the drama in store for us in 10 years...Lord, help me!

I think I'm going to start numbering my posts too. It'll be easier to find things. :)
I see that same pouty face every day! Maybe it's an Ethiopian thing. :)

It must be something about kids from Ethiopia...Cherinet does it all the time as well. I need to know the website to this clothing. Hadassah has grown out of her smock dresses and I would love to order some from Vietnam!
