She might look like Daddy but she's a lot like Mama! (and what we've been up to)

When I arrange things Jim says I have mild OCD. (I may... how many other people eat colored candy in pairs arranged by color?) When his darling girl lined up all of the cones he was trying to use for soccer he said she's "linear". Funny how the title is different for different people.
After putting them in a line she paired them up carefully around the yard. This took a while and a LOT of concentration - what could be going through that little mind?
And just goofing off...
She now knows where popsicles are kept and goes to the freezer saying "sicle" many times a day.
We made playdough,
met cousins at the wading pool,
practiced guitar with Daddy,
and helped Mama make homemade lemonade.
The girls liked strawberry best, Dad liked blueberry. (We picked blueberries from a local farm that morning - YUM!) I wish you could have seen how beautiful the colors were. I tried to capture it, but this is the best picture I could get.
Look at her DEVOUR that burger... Oh wait, nope it's a Gardenburger. That's my girl!
And totally unrelated, I've been making belts! This one is probably my favorite. Jim got a navy one and an olive one, I got this one, chocolate, charcoal, and olive. I got the webbing and hardware from an Etsy site (I just searched for "belt buckles"). No tools required, just cut the webbing and crimp the ends of the hardware. I think they cost about 5-6 bucks a piece. MUCH better than the price in the stores!
There are only a few weeks left of vacation so I'm trying to enjoy the time with Stella as much as possible. She actually napped on my chest the other day - AH HEAVEN!!!!

Omigosh, I used to keep *lists* of various candies and their flavors, and eat them in order from worst to best. Each candy was organized by type (Skittles, Starburst, etc.), then by variety (Original, Wild Berry, etc.) Umm...I stopped that a long time ago.

I love that belt!!! I have been looking for the perfect (not outrageously expensive) belts for a long time. I'll have to do an etsy search of my own. Thanks for the hint! :)

You can't fool her long as she will figure out things faster than you can imagine. I like her girly pink dress and your belt too!
