South Phone Birthday

I wonder... now that I live in South Austin, how long will it take before I start to think that tie-dye is cool? That's one particular trend that I've never been fond of, but it's all over the place down here. Instead of taco stands on the side of the road, there are tie-dye stands. Okay, so really there are both, but I still find it odd. I wonder if anyone's ever tie-dyed a wedding dress...

My family members will be happy to note that I've started making phone calls more often! I am part of the 5% of women who hate to talk on the phone and I receive no end of grief over how infrequently I talk to some people. Occasionally, however, I tap into some vein of desire to stay connected to those I love and I resolve to actually speak to them. As of a couple of weeks ago, I made a list of six people (or sets of people) and I call one of them every day.

Lila's 4th birthday is coming up in one month and for once I'm not stressed over planning her party. That's because she pretty much planned it herself and all I have to do is implement it. Sweet! The only thing she doesn't know is what she's getting as a gift. She keeps saying she wants a teddy bear, but we're not too hot on that idea. The girl has stuffed animals coming out her ears. We have other ideas...

I don't quite understand the title of your post. Should I?
What has Lila told you she wants for her birthday party? for that matter, what does Lila need/want for her birthday? Let me know!

BTW, I love their clothes! Papa Frank needs a shirt like his!

It's so good to meet someone else who doesn't like talking on the phone! I feel like an outcast from woman-kind some times...

I also loathe talking on the phone. I used to like it when I was a teenager, but now it's just an act of insanity while keeping up with 2 kiddos. You're not alone!

Count me among the 5%! I don't like shopping, either.
