About Vera:

Hi! Thanks for visiting "Lady and the Blog". I would love for you to learn a little more about me and my family! Hope you enjoy your visit!

Best Present Ever


I am sorry I’ve been so quiet today. Last night I met a friend in my office (you know – Starbucks) and we talked shop for a few hours. He had a lot of great suggestions for me and I just ran with half of them this afternoon. I was working – but on the back end. My apologies about not getting more stories up today.

I had to post this picture though! It was part of my Mother’s Day present from Natalie and I CAN’T get over how old she said I was. 13! That seems like light years away for her. So sweet. πŸ™‚

I will have you know that as I type… I am wearing 2 Silly Bandz. So yes, I caved. But thankfully I got a lot of support from you guys! So that made it easier for me to accept.

Today was long. This is literally the third day in a row I thought was Friday! I woke up unable to accept it was Thursday. Kids are watching a TV program and I am trying to get through some emails. I’m calling it a night WAY early… like in an hour.

Until tomorrow. πŸ™‚

  1. Natalie is such as sweetheart, that is so touching! Time goes by so fast its SCARY! May 13th, hello, how did that happen?

    If you ever want to share your ideas, I’m all ears ;-). Trying to work on the back end as well. Lots of research to do and no time to do as much as I should.

  2. Totally adorable~! and I feel completely out of it — silly bandz?! my nephew was showing them to me today and I just thought they were rubber bands. Note to self :: Must get head out of the clouds.

  3. Absolutely adorable πŸ™‚
