This is a blog about my life in Charlotte. I am a wannabe fire eater, compulsive reader, secret artist, beginner gardener, ninjalike organizer, and TERRIBLE speller.

As embarrassing as it is, I am finally getting around to posting about the TootToot's birthday.
Which was over a month ago.
Each year we select a theme based on her favorite book of the previous year. This year was SkippyJon Jones. He is a Siamese cat who thinks he is a Chihuahua. It is pretty funny.
We decorated the house like a Mexican Fiesta and, true to the story, had lots of beans. Black beans, refried, jelly, french...and the list goes on. We had a taco bar and for dessert, I made a cake to look like a sombrero. Ole!
Nora received some wonderful gifts, but the big hit was the pick Jeep from her grandparents. If this is any indication of her driving style later in life SHE WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED TO GET A LICENCE!
As a favor, everyone got to take home a homemade chocolate bandito mustache lolly. We had a ton of fun posing for pictures with those.
