A star in the making...and adventures with Brittney!

So my daughter... who is only 3... is already obsessed with Taylor Swift and has recently found Hannah Montana, too. How is this happening already?? I swear I was like 10 before I was obsessed with the New Kids On The Block (oy... is that aging myself or what???!!!)!

The two songs she always requests are Taylor's "Love Story" and also her newest single, "You Belong With Me". Taylor's new video was on TV tonight and we happened to pass by it... Maddie got her microphone and started singing away... and I thought I'd share :) Something to smile about today since my sister flew back home this evening (MISS YOU BRITTNEY!).

What do you think?? Is she ready for American Idol?

So as I said, Brittney went home today... I have had such a blast with her this past week! Maddie was so sad to see Aunt Brittney go! Thankfully, we don't have long until we see her again. We will be heading down a month from tomorrow for my brother's wedding (which I can't believe my "little" brother is getting married! Now I'm REALLY aging myself!).

Brittney told me she has never had a pedicure before... WHAT? We HAD to change that right away! Sunday, we headed out to do what we do best together - make up shopping! We hit up Sephora and MAC! It just so happened that the place I love to go for pedicures is right across the street from the mall... so I did what any big sister would do and treated her to her very first pedicure! She loved it! I think she's hooked :) We already have plans to go together when I visit Florida next month before the wedding!

Our all done up toes...mine are the french tips... she went with this awesome OPI color that I need to find out the name of! It was a deep purple color but when in the sun, had awesome blue undertones to it!We cleaned up to get ready to head out to dinner... but first posed for a quick picture...
Britt always requests Mellow Mushroom as one of her "must do list" when she visits us. No complaints from her big sister on that one! It was AMAZING as always! I am very much a big, doughy type girl... I just am not a full fan of thin crust. It will do in a pinch but I am very picky about my pizza crust! :) JR lets me pick my pieces first so he doesn't have to hear me complain later :) This pizza had chicken, roma tomatoes and fresh basil on it.

I ate the crust (of course), most of my toppings... but left the bottom part of both pieces to save room for this....

That is a yummy cup of TCBY chocolate/vanilla swirl with Reese's pieces (another thing I LOVE... ANYTHING Reese's!)

Maddie got her usual Rainbow Swirl... which is actually vanilla ice cream in a butt load of food coloring (nice and healthy, huh?)...

I think she liked it. :)

And this concludes our monster post of the day! :) I hope you enjoyed hanging out with my family! I'll be posting random trip recaps this week when I can!

Last... I leave you with my favorite picture of this week with Britt...
