Party, party, party!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

Welcome to the Colour 4

let me be honest ... and a bit selfish ... this site is about me!  and all the other stuff that goes along in my life.

Christy (me)
Insta Christy
I'm 25 ... I'll be 26 in two weeks.  Just this night I had a conversation with the guy at the gas station about how I looked young.  When I walked up with beer (for the party, you know) his first words were "How old are you mam?"  and then he kept repeating, "you look young" ... I thanked him for his compliments and walked away with my beer.  I'm really 25 (almost 26) I swear!

Andrew (hubby)
Insta Andrew
Right now Andrew is watching Old School for maybe the 200th time.  When it started he commented how the music takes him back to his partying days.  So, here's to the ultimate party movie!

Leah (3.5 going on 13)
Insta Leah
Tonight Leah had the house phone and seriously looked at me and told me she needed to text Santa so he knows she's being a good girl. What ... my 3 1/2 year old wants to start texting?

Audrey (the 1 year old baby)
Insta Audrey

Tonight Audrey said bath!  She doesn't talk much, and I'm pretty sure it's because Leah speaks for her, but it could also be because she knows how to get her way without ever speaking a word.

So, this place is pretty much a spot for me to be me.  I write fiction here.  I talk about my past here.  I take pictures (one a day to be exact)  I talk about my kids.  I talk about how I can not cook.  I talk about struggles.  And I make up my own sense as I go along, because I'm sure you know ... everything in life doesn't make sense, but we just keep going and make it up as we go along!

I would be honored to have you come along with me, and I will for sure come visit you as well.
