So Many Reasons to Smile

My heart is so very happy today!
Despite not feeling well the last few days, I woke up with a huge smile on my face... it's Friday, Mmmm!

So, this little blondie is headed home for a long weekend and I am SO ready! It's my sweet little sister's big homecoming dance and i know she's going to look gorgeous.

Just a cute photo of her last year. The theme was "Under the Sea", so I called her Underwater Barbie for at least a month (I mean doesn't she look like a pretty little mermaid Barbie??)...

{ Isn't she pretty? }

There are so many things on my mind, so naturally I have to share with all of you bloggy friends...
