Southern Chic

So, in the past few hours, I have learned that changing your blog name and address is slightly more complicated than one would think.  Oh well, hindsight is 20/20!  I think I've gotten most of my stuff moved over to the new website!  I just thought "treynabby" sounded like it should be airbrushed on a cheesy t shirt from the beach.  Brown Eyed Auburn Girl sounds much more southern chic and blogworthy right?  I've never heard the term southern chic, but it sounded like a good word to use in this case.  Hope you follow my new blog!
Ok, off to play with kiddos before work.  Hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!

Needed a change - new site address

I am changing my blogspot to http://www.browneyedauburngirl.blogspot.com/.
I just felt like I needed a change (I'm a girl, I can change my mind as many times as I want, right?)
So, I thought about what described me and since I think of myself a s just a plain jane/girl next door type, it was between Brown eyed girl or Girl next door which were both taken!  So.... I threw a little auburn shoutout in there and came up with my new blogspot=)  Hopefully everybody will figure out where I am and keep me on your blog roll!
That is, as soon as I figure out how to import/export my blog to the new site?  Anybody have any experience with this?

Sophie, Selah and Susan

Selah is really into dolls right now (that is a huge understatement actually.)  She always has a doll with her which is exactly like Sophie at this age.  Love that!  Meet one of our many "doll friends."

See Sophie, Selah and Susan.

See Susan pose for a picture.

Selah loves Susan.

Susan can swim float.

Susan floats away from Sophie and Selah.

Sophie and Selah are mildly concerned.

Sophie thinks hard about saving Susan, but decides not to.

Poor Susan. =(
Susan survived though.

This is how Sophie poses for a picture.

This is how Selah poses for a picture.

Sophie thinking about which jump she's going to do off the board. 

Early stages of a great can opener. =)

In case you hadn't noticed, all we've done lately is swim, so stay tuned for more swimming pictures... lots more.

My Playroom Storage Solution!

I got the idea and designed a storage system for our playroom in May.
My sweet grandfather Pop Pop built it in June.
We painted it in July.
So, as you can imagine, I am super excited that it is installed and in use!
So without further ado... introducing, the new playroom storage system.
Can you tell I am excited???

The Hardware.
 (from Restoration Hardware)

The Baskets.
(from Land of Nod)

The Labels.
(Although I haven't finalized my labeling system, I bought these discounted stationary cards and laminated them at Fed Ex.  I am going to punch holes in the sides, attach them with ribbon and write on them with a dry erase marker.)

One piece of the three piece unit.


We are loving it!  I wish my whole house could be as organized as this little nook!
One day....

Quick Pic Post

I was over at my parents' house the other day taking pictures of some furniture to do a new post on their website http://www.openwindowantiques.com/.  I snapped a few of Selah and caught this cute one.  This is her favorite way to swing on the big girl swing.

Took this one of the girls' at a friend's lake house on July 4th weekend.

Be back soon =)  I am trying to take pictures of our newly ORGANIZED playroom.  I am so happy with it!

Hugs, Kisses and a Birthday

So, I lied about not playing catch up.  I am going to try... a little =).

Luke and Sophie at "Ya Ya's Beach" before going to dinner at Lulu's for Elaine's bday.

Aunt Riley and Sophie
Loving on her "big city" aunt while she's in town.

Me and Miss Hollywood.  By the look on her face, I think she is protesting the camera =)

Bear hug.

Kisses from Reesie Poo

Sisters, can you see the tension =)  They really do love eachother though!

More of Miss Hollywood

So hard to get these glasses on straight, hey but at least they're not upside down like usual!

Back at the condo for birthday pie?  Elaine making a wish.

Getting a little help with the candles!

Stay tuned for more!

Beach Favorites and Orange Soda

More favorites uncut and unedited because I don't have any photo editing stuff back on my computer yet.

My Wildflower

Sophie Sunshine

So probably no one will think this is funny except for my mom, Elaine and Riley....
Remember the Nickelodeon show, All That?
Well, we watched it and loved Keenan and Kel.  And Kel looooved orange soda!
"Who loves orange soda? Kel loves orange soda!"

Selah loves orange soda too!

and so does Sophie =)

Every Diva needs a good pair of princess glasses!

Be back soon with more pics!


I am so behind on posting pictures, I won't even try to catch up.  Last week we had to wipe out our computer (because of a bad virus) and start fresh, so I'm in the process of reloading programs and reorienting myself to the new computer setup.  I am trying to sort through the pictures of this summer so far.  I wonder how many pictures of my kids I'll have by the time they go to college?  Probably close to a million I am guessing =)  What is one to do with all these pictures?  Do we print them or just keep them on the computer?  Photo albums and scrapbooking are both daunting tasks that I am not willing to take on at the moment, so for now, as I sort through the photos, I'll just share a few faves =)

My little cowgirl

Future heartbreaker aka "Luke"
I am sure girls will go gaga for that curly hair
