Posing like a Model

You guys, I have had some serious writer's block this week.  Maybe I am just so excited for Thanksgiving that I can't focus on blogging.  Lucky for you, my nieces have been kind of hilarious this week, so I will just tell 2 stories.

The other night, I was on the phone with D, who is 8 years old.  Our conversation went something like this:

D: All we do at school is learn. It's so boring!
Me: I think it is fun to learn new things.
D: And THAT is why you aren't ready to have kids! 
Me: Well, maybe my kids will think school is fun. 
D (totally exasperated with my ignorance): What kid would think school is fun? I mean, your kids will be related to me, and I don't think school is fun, so they probably won't either!

She then lectured me about how school is torture and how if I ever have kids, I better not send them to school because school is just the worst.    

Then on Thursday, my sister instagrammed a picture of my youngest niece E, who is 4.  She kind of looked like she was getting ready for a boxing match.  The caption was "I asked her how she thought Aunt Andi should pose..."  Since I am always striving for "favorite aunt" status, this picture had to happen.  

I hope you all have a lovely weekend!!

Dress: Old Navy
Cardigan: Marisa Kristina
Necklace: gift (from the Bauble Swap)
Belt: Limited
Shoes: BCBGeneration

EDIT:  E has requested her picture on the blog.  I just do whatever she wants!

I think I should start a series inspired by her fashion!  She is mixing prints like a pro fashion blogger!


  1. Just showed E, and she laughed and laughed and said, "can't we show my picture like that on her lab" (i think she means blog! )

    1. I can add her picture! I just need approval from her mom! :-)

  2. go ahead--she will get a thrill from it!

  3. showed the kids....S said, "Lot's of people are seeing you right now!" and E yelled, "I'm famous!"
