We celebrated Malee's (Emmie's) 9th birthday this past weekend. I find it more difficult to shop as they get older. We just went out and bought her clothes. I think she might be at that age where fashion matters? My mom bought her Justin Beiber gear. Malee says she's not a fan. We were dumbfounded. A girl who isn't fond of JB??! OMG! I found a great summer outfit and it was pink. I hope pink works for her. At that age it was blue for me. Yep BLUE! I grew up with boys, so I was a bit of a tom boy. Who would have thought Lisa? A tom boy? I liked basketball and soccer and I played against-boys! One time my cousin kicked the soccer ball into my face. A girl would cry, right? No. I chased him around the yard for a minute until one of the other boys held me back to stop me. I was stubborn too. He was the cousin that I always got into fights with. And I'm talking pushing and shoving. But we love eachother-it was a love/ hate type of thing. Thanks to my mom and dance I found a girly side and it stuck with me. My mom wasn't a fan of contact sports. And any chance she had to put me into a puffy, frilly dress -she did it. My dad wanted me to be a boy, so he was thrilled that I liked basketball and soccer.
Haha! Take a look at this outfit! Wierd? Cute?
