Cutie Patooties

My sweet friend Maggie came over a few weeks ago.

Isn’t that a great name?

I would like to name my unborn child

Maggie Daisy Sandy.

Daisy after Gary’s Mom.

gary's Mom Sandy after my Mom.

games 8 And Maggie after Maggie.

maggie I don’t think it goes together though…

Anyway, back to the post!

Maggie and I went to college together.

She is one of those people that you love immediately!

I have never heard her say a bad word

about any human being.

I love people like her.

We only live an hour and a half from one another.

We hadn’t seen each other since her wedding.

(And that was like eleventy- eleventy million years ago.)billy

She looked EXACTLY the same.

Except cuter!

Maggie is so kind and sweet,

you can’t help but love her!

And you would surely love her children too.

They were angelic!

Do you love when you have company?billy justin

It is my MOST favorite thing!

In fact, I think I am going thru Sophia withdrawl…

It is SERIOUS! davids sophia 108   And in other news.

you simply MUST check out this new site.

I am so excited about it!

I can’t even stand it.

And you know me,

I NEVER get that excited…

Congratulations on you baby to be, or the little nugget as you called it.

Lisa said...

Oh, this is like reading a fantastic book and not ever wanting to come to the end!

Fabulous photos and captions.....I'm hooked & captivated!!

And I see the above...oh goodness...congratulations!!!!!!!!

Cop Mama said...

That was so fun to read! As I kept scrolling down, I couldn't wait to see what was next! One question...How do you get your photos so LARGE?

Christine H. said...

I wanted to invite them all over. Heartwarming pictures!

Kristina P. said...

Love all those names. They are a little old fashioned but not old lady.

Brandi said...

Beautiful pictures!

Roger Owen Green said...

Cuties, indeed. Yes, your photos are so large; really works.

On behalf of the ABC Wednesday team, thank you!

Marilyn said...

That would be a great name (for a girl) who cares if it doesn't go together. It has meaning. So happy you had your friend visiting. I wondered what you were up to. I was about ready to come looking for you.

Teacher Tom said...

People who don't speak badly of other humans are true treasures. They are like magical beings.

Felicia said...

What an absolutely sweet post and sweet photos too!

Lookie Lou TPPC.tv said...

Oh I love your blog! And I loved the Communal Global too!

I love all 3 of those names. Daisy is just too cute.

Football & Fried Rice said...

Hmm, is there a clue in this post?!

I think it's a great name! I have 2 middle names myself! Sara Marie Elizabeth. But I've always loved Maggie.

Mya & Maggie. Yes, it goes!

See what you've got me doing? Naming babies I don't have!

Buckeroomama said...

Naming babies that I don't have yet --I think I've been doing that since I was a little girl! :)

Off to check out Communal Global...

Mrsbear said...

Maggie Daisy Sandy has a nice ring to it. Or maybe Sandy Maggie Daisy... Sounds like you had a fabulous visit. Company like that I don't mind having, reconnecting with good friends is always a blessing.

Lolli said...

I do love that name. Spunky!

Amy said...

I love the range of ages and emotions in the pictures you've posted today. Such a variety.

And I love the sound of those names together. It sounds like a happy baby.

Sarah said...

ok, so confused. are you having a baby?? regardless, cute post :) and that is awesome that you're part of communal global!!

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I loved the blended emotions in this post. By the way, Kaishon looks like his dad's mom.

I am excited for Communal Global. What a terrific idea. I'm now following you all on your journey.

Photos were gorgeous!

Gabe's Girl said...

What a wonderful post! I love reconnecting with old friends. And yes, are you having a baby? Us nosy people want to know!

Natalie at Mommy on Fire said...

I have a very best friend that is like my sister. We have been best pals for 25 years now and I go through withdrawal everytime I'm around her. I am happy because I was just with her and super sad because I miss her horribly when she leaves.

Maggie has always been on of my faves and I personally like all of them together. :)

Momisodes said...

I love all of those names. Of course, you know I'm partial to 'Sandy' :D

Baloney said...

Wow - that would be quite a name!
Glad you got to spend time with your friend. It's always fun to see an "old" friend.
Left you a little award on my blog today.

Hilary said...

Beautiful faces.. all down the line. :)

LisaF said...

Thanks for your comments on my C words. You definitely have some cutie-patooties in your life! So sweet.

The Sanders Family said...

Awww...how cute are you girl! I love the way you just had a conversation with me through this post! ha ha. Lovely photos :)

Diann @ The Thrifty Groove said...

Oh, aren't "old" friends the best!!

Kim said...

Very sweet post for the special people on your life and photos to got with them. Thanks for stopping by today!

Tumblewords: said...

Captivating C. Cutest children, cutest!! How fun company is. Yes!

Amandalynn said...

Awww, I love this post. Great photos - I especially love the one of your mom, she looks like just the most fun!

debi9kids said...

Beautiful photos and she sounds like the most wonderful person. What a loving friend you are :)

Sonya said...

First I LOVE the name you picked! seriously love it. I love that it's semi old fashioned..Im so sick of the hollywood anmes these days.

Second LOVE Communal global..Im a follower:)

Lisa said...

WOW! You take the most beautiful pictures. My sister's name is Margaret. BUT! all our friends call her Maggie. She will always be Margaret to me simply because it is hard to charge. But, I LOVE to hear them call her Maggie...it is such a warm happy name.

I have to come back to check out the other blog... Today is the day the girls go to "the shelter" to make sandwhiches and I just have to get off this thing! uggg This idea sounded better before I knew I had to be an hour away from my house by 8 AM with four girls! I am never as good as I think I am or wish I were:-)

xoxo

Jay said...

I see no patooties, but they're certainly cute! LOL!

Isn't it funny how you can look at people's childhood pictures and say they look exactly the same, and yet, you can't look at a child and say you know for sure what s/he is going to look like as an adult? It's one of life's mysteries!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I love the name Maggie as well. I love wonderful friends who visit. I dont like loud and lazy people to visit, so I don't invite them anymore.
Great photos...here and at the Global spot. YOU are everywhere girl...pretty soon, you will forget about all the little people. I just know it.
Luckily, I am not little. anymore.

blueviolet said...

I actually despise having company. Isn't that awful??? I have to agree that Maggie Daisy Sandy is not a name that flows. lol

Robin said...

I love visitors as well & it's always super fun to re-connect with dear friends.

We had a hard time deciding on a name for our little boy. I would be not be the best help for you there ... sorry!

Very sweet pictures!
Robin

Maggie has always been a favorite name of mine! Yes, I love when company comes over! It's always fun to reconnect with those who mean so much! Love your beautiful pictures!♥

Trudy said...

I do love the name Maggie and you are right..she is just beautiful!

I also love having company, a good friend and her daughter are coming for dinner tomorrow night and I haven't seen her since my wedding, over a year and a half ago! I am looking forward to a great visit.

God bless you my friend!

How about Margaret-Daisy Cassandra? or something similar?

Thanks for the comment, you werent being a jerk. Now if you had personally attacked someone without being funny then you would have qualified. Or something like that. 99% of people get through though on any rate. Now I'm just rambling, but that's the caffeine talking again. Either that or the brownies.

jen@odbt said...

Congrats on your new endeavor :) Looks like fun.

Tamar SB said...

ashia said...

what great photos!!!! my favorite is the little girl in the tutu! =) she's just beautiful!

Pam D said...

Oh, what sweet pics, and what wonderful names! And I am glad that I already read the post after this one so that I don't have to get my hopes up that you are having a baby, only to find out that you aren't! It is fine that you aren't, as long as I wasn't thinking that you were. Got that? ha. And yes I do love seeing my friends, and I love making new friends, too. Remember that song "Make new friends, but keep the old; One is silver and the other is gold." ? Well, dear Becky, you are one of the rare new friends that is not only gold... you are diamond-encrusted!

LeAnn * ~ See Great Things said...

I really like your blog, how it is set you and all. I like how your text flows with the pictures. Nice.

Michelle said...

You always take such fantastic portraits.

Liz said...

I am glad that you had a great visit with your friend. I tend to like more traditional, old fashion names. So, Maggie is a very pretty name.

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

Those 2 last shots are simply wonderful!
I enjoy having company ..... we live in the middle of nowhere so it's nice when friends and family make the drive.

Lisa said...

That last picture is absolutely adorable!!!

Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella said...

Absolutely gorgeous photos! They seem to really capture what's inside each person beautifully! :D

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Absolutely beautiful pictures and such kind words. I love the name Maggie.

Drew said...

Oh, boy (or oh, girl)? How hilarious! Now everyone thinks you're preggers. You might as well tell Gary that he needs to produce this baby for you since the announcement is out before you're even pregnant. Come on, Gary! Babies are wonderful!

Cecily R said...

LOVE the pics, LOVE the Maggie Daisy Sandy tangent, LOVE the way you obviously love your life. What a great post!!!
