10 on tuesday

1. This morning when I checked my iphone, it offered this warm greeting: "Welcome back, Collin Rulz!" {grrr}

2. I'm officially an uncool mom because I have no idea how to change it back.

3. It's hard to keep a straight face when your 2 year old gets all dressed up and proudly proclaims "Yook! I'm a booty queen!"


4. I love when people say: "My 2 year old never cooperates for pictures! Looks like Livia is always up for getting her picture taken." {chuckle chuckle}

Evidence to the contrary:


5. But my favorite photo sessions are the ones where she refuses to turn around.


6. Our 2011 baseball season is done! I had all these great ideas for capturing the little details, but in the 100+ degree heat, my energy and creativity seemed to wither. Snapshots to follow...




7. And now for Drew's team...



8. Just a few more...




9. Time for a coupon update! I purchased the products below from Walgreens, CVS and Super Target. Guess how much they cost me out of pocket??


Less than TEN DOLLARS! I was going to tell you the exact retail price of the products, but I can't hang on to a receipt to save my life. Do receipts have a way of escaping you too? I'm guessing the items would have cost around $65-$70.

10. Alrighty friends...that's #10 and I'm off for a pedicure!


Oh wait...before you go, just a couple more from a few minutes ago. (I had this post done yesterday, so the pictures below are in real time).

Waaaahhhhh! My boys started school this morning! :-(






We miss you already bubbies!!! ♥♥♥

Is Livia having a hard time without her brothers?

Skye said...

Booty Queen - Lmao. Classic.
Kudos to your $10 stuff... I don't know if I Have the patience. Guess thats why I am the sucker that pays full price for things b/c its convenient LOL!
My husband and I watched Extreme couponing the other night and I wanted to throw something at the tv. Those women are out of control spending 60 hours a week preparing for free stuff - holy moly!

Kristal said...

Livia's "are we having fun yet" shots are so hilarious!

I had one child play baseball for two seasons. Worst summers of my life. So darn long and the team we were on was JUST NOT NICE!! Give me soccer any day...

And school already... I'm ready to start, but don't have all my curriculum yet.

Mom of M&Ms said...

Jeska said...

I don't know if my comment posted so I'll recap :)

The picture of Livia walking in between her brothers to school is so sweet! And I can't believe school has started already! I always love reading your posts!

Natalie said...

Oh, the "booty queen"! TOO FUNNY!

Love all these pictures. I think you got some great shots at the games - despite the heat. The nail polish pic is so cool.

I'm thinking you should just send me all your great deals for the week and I'll get what you get. Much easier than figuring it out myself! ;-)

Mandy@ a sorta fairytale said...

Ha ha your little girl is a crack up. And those blonde curls.... I'm green with envy.
And wow, what a steal for all of that stuff!!! I need to start using coupons more!

Bunch of Barrons said...

Hope you enjoyed your pedi! LOVE those. :) and #3 made me LOL. my little girl growled "I'm a pwincess" at me the other day. Look out prince charming...shes the independent type. ;)

Liz said...

awesome shots. Too cute of TT.

Yeah summer is almost over I want to cry.

Amarie said...

I was wondering what was up with all the pictures of her back LOL! My 4 y/o use to say "Sleeping Booty" :-D.

deb duty said...

I'm sad summer break is over too! Your first day photos are really great!

Elena said...

All great shots! Love the 'booty' queen ones!

Jill Samter Photography said...

Oh my word! HA HA HA! Can you seriously imagine TT and NJ together? We would be laughing way too hard!!! HA! She is a trip and I can't wait to meet her some day in person! That's all I have to say about that. :-D

Love the shots of her at school with the boys.

Next week is the first time our group goes to school and spend 8 hours without me. I can't wait to capture shots of them in their uniforms. SOOO CUTE!

Hugs and much love! Congrats to the boys on their baseball season as well!
XOXO

happy me said...

Karli! You had me at "Yook! I'm a booty queen!"

But then the baseball collages & that b/w mid-swing?

And your show-off couponing (I'm just jealous)?

And TT in that gorgeous park?

I was just going to ask you when the boys went back; Oregon does the day after Labor Day.

YKILY!

Michelle said...

Hi, sweet friend!! :)

Gonna make it a quickie tonight!

1&2 - hehehe! Awe, it's all good! And it does seem that Collin rulz... the iphone...

3. Hubby and I both got a huge chuckle from the booty queen!! Love it and adorably cute shots!!

4 &5. Love your real life shots and how you display them so beautifully!

6 & 7 & 8 - it don't matter if they're uber creative or snapshots -- you captured some wonderful memories for them! More creative and with more vision than most of the other player's parent's shots, I'm willing to bet...

9. You rock. You're my hero. Someday, I'm gonna grow up to a coupon-er like you...

10. Enjoy!!

11-kinda. :) Awe! Poor girls! Loosing your boys to school! Hope you survived and can get back into the routine!

xoxoxo

All beautiful shots. Your little girl is an adorable little princess.

Sarah said...

Awww. I love this. Hope you enjoyed your pedicure. I love the ones at the school and so funny about Livia being a booty queen.

Katrina said...

Hi from Australia:) I LOVE reading your blog and check back often.. Gorgeous kids and photography x

Adeena said...

Booty queen... XD

Baseball is over here, too. My kids are sad about that. Well, the oldest two, anyway. ;)

Your kids started school already?? Wow! It doesn't start here until after Labour Day weekend.

Courtney said...

People say the same thing about my tiny tornado as well. Wish I'd snapped a few of the tantrum she threw at bedtime. I love the one of the boys holding her hand as they walk up to the school. My oldest started kindergarten this week. Bittersweet. Beautiful as always! Hope you enjoyed the pedi!

Carrie said...

Precious! Getting sports photos are tough. I think you did a great job with them though.

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

The cutest "Booty Queen" ever...... gosh, I love her!!! She has so much personality, she appears to be larger than life!

Looks like the first day of school was great.....the pictures are worth a thousand words!

Hope all is well and you are getting back into the school groove:)

xoxo,

Lisa

Natalie said...

Oh first day of school! How exciting and nerve racking and hearbreaking all in one! I hope they have an amazing year! As for your couponing! I wish I could fly you here to teach me ;) And I forgot to mention in the last post comment that my son recently graduated to a 'big boy' bed and he has never slept better!

Ashley said...

Ha I love the behind the scenes with TT. And I'm insanely jealous of her gorgeous hair!! She is looking so grown up! I love how you laid out the boys baseball pics. Looks like so much fun!
