Are These the Sweet Sounds that Called the Young Sailors

Just a little smidge of the happenings around the Liles house. So, there are a mere three weeks until we go to Disney World and only two weeks until I am a 28 year old female. 28…2..and an 8…wow. Is this happening?

And what’s going on with us? Well, we are STILL missing the lovely New Orleans. It’s a bit of a hangover of wonderful culture in the great Crescent City. Most days feature some time spent trying to figure out how to get back there as fast as we can. We miss the food, the inviting people, our rented shotgun cottage, our amazing hostess, the food (again), the Louisiana kind of heat that is actually bearable. We swear that we will be back shortly. Other than our daydreaming and scheming, life has just been getting back in the grove of being back in Fort Worth, acquiring beautiful business packaging supplies and celebrating our anniversary just a little bit more. We enjoyed a nice preview of my favorite time of year (autumn), Shark Week with Emory who loves all things sharks (?)

And we just had to get to the theater as fast as we could to see ParaNorman. I live for Coraline, which we saw in 3-D when it very first came out and love, love, loved it. Needless to say, we had high hopes for ParaNorman, and it did not disappoint! It was very similar to Coraline but from a boys’ point of view. And it worked. Bo may have teared up.

To keep our home life a little more fun, I purchased tap shoes and I’ve been tappa tappa tappaing away. Seriously, I love tap, even if it’s been a few years since having a pair of tap shoes on…not since my little girl days of being in jazz tap and ballet. And so, I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos on tap…and sweating…a …lot. It’s been a busy and fun time, as the shop is keeping us busy. We are collecting many beautiful things for our collection. I even scored many more vintage Ferragmos for the shoe inventory.

Thank the Lord above for providing, and providing the weather change…it’s a little dreary but so who can argue with 70 degree temperatures?
