not a day over 45

See this lady?

She makes me smile... and often laugh out loud.


Because she sends me e-mails like this:

When we come to Charlotte, we can do stuff or we can sit in your family room and I can stare at you for a week. Your call.

And she sends me texts like this:

I once told you that men come into their prime at 30. That lasts for about 20 years or so.
You on the other hand will be at your best forever. It's just that way with us girls!

Cali's going with me to visit Beth this evening. She is quite the social butterfly.

I can hear some oldie jazzy type group singing at the lake. They're doing that Baby, Baby song. So lame.

Got a pair of denim jeggings. I be stylin'. ;)

FYI. Just in case. Our wills are in the pull-out drawer of my chest of drawers.
She tells me this every time her and my dad leave on vacation

Had a great meal tonight... your favorite.... duck.
I hate duck

And has text conversations like this:

Sept. 1, 2011
Mom: Am getting my toes done. Wish you were here!
Me: I got my nails done today. Must be that kind of a day :)
Mom: Katrina said to say she misses you. And she loved the ice cream.
Me: Haha!
Mom: She said she misses you "a lot".
Me: Kinda weird...
Katrina is the nail lady I've gone to for years back in California

Sept. 3, 2011
Mom: Am really missing you today. Cried a few times. Don't know why. Love you my sweet girl.
Me: Maybe it's because you have Cali.
Mom: Maybe it's because I haven't seen you in 2 months, you're my kid and I love you.

Sept. 8, 2011
Me: Misophonia. Google it!
Mom: I should have known you and B would find each other. You both have a real disorder.
Me: See. It's not my fault. I have a clinical issue.
Mom: Go have some therapy and take some prescribed meds. One thing for sure. You didn't inherit the problem from either Dad or me!
Me: Bry and I are two peas in a pod
Mom: Or maybe just two weirdos who found each other

Oct. 1, 2011
Mom: Trying to explain the difference between leggins and jeggings to Dad.
Me: Why?
Mom: Why not? I'm trying to decide what I look better in!

Happy Birthday, Mom!


  1. This post made me sad. I often wonder what kind of relationship I would have with my mom if she would still be alive. Would she be old school like my dad and not be into texting and technology Or would she be up with the times?

    You are so very lucky Kate. Not that I'm sure you don't know this already but count your blessings! :)

  2. That is just too cute! Your momma seems like one amazing lady.
