and sienna's video

This one is sickeningly sweet. Be prepared. I hope they want to do pin the tail on the donkey next year instead of videos.

So I'm getting ready for my big trip on Saturday! Wahoo! Hip! Hip! But then of course, bad news. My best friend and her husband were coming with us and they found out this morning that her dad is in the hospital and will only live a few more days. They had to cancel and lose money on top of the grief that they will face. I feel so sorry for her. Poor, poor Mami. I will miss her very much.

We have been on "new house" and "trip" mode at the same time and it's very scary because I am sure I'm forgetting something. We close on both houses 4 days after we get back and then some flooring guys go in and rip out the floors to put in the hardwood the day after that. I've got to schedule floor guys, movers and shakers all before we leave. What am I forgetting??

Anyway, I'm boring and I apologize. I should have something really meaty when I get back from Europe. If you know some great places in Barcelona, Cannes, Florence or Rome - lemme know. If you need me to bring you home a crepe, lemme know.

I love the Turtles!!!!! I make Tom sing that song to me all the time.

The boys loved your last video. I can't wait to show them this one. They think your "baby" is so cute.

Great shot from under the tramp!
Loved everyone tipping backward and wiggling their feet... you even got Preslie to do it. You are a great director.

Have fun on your trip. I know it will be a bummer going without Mami. I know how much you love those guys.

Talk to you when you get back. Each a fancy French pastry for me.
Love you,
Lisa B.

Hi Shelby,

It's your old friemd Chandi. Stacia told me about your blog and I wanted to hop on and check it out for myself. First I have to say Holy Crap you're photogenic. Second, I'm so happy that you have come through everything alright. Third, your new home sounds like a dream as does your trip to Europe. Your children are darling, and I noticed you waxed your eyebrows. I can't help but wonder if it was the comment from the beautician in college that set that off. Anyway, its nice to read a part of your life. We had such a fun time back in the day and I have wondered about you many times.

Have fun on your trip! I love the videos. Will you come do videos for my birthday party? It's a good thing we didn't have video cameras and editing tools in college. I can only imagine what we would have come up with.

Chandi, I totally forgot about that comment made in college by the beautician. Some people can be so bold. Shelby, you have always been beautiful.
