beans, jeggings & squirrels

These are a few of her favorite things.

Favorite food?
Beans.  Any bean.  Any way.  Any time of day.  She begs me to buy cans of them at Target.  Not candy.  Not cookies.  Kidney beans.  Black beans.  Pinto beans.  Beans

Favorite item of clothing?
Walmart jeggings.
She cuddles them.  Would wear them every single day and night if she could.  Her soft jeans.  Her un-scratchy, un-strangling cozy jeggings.  Jeggings.

Favorite animal two years running?
Squirrels.  What did she ask Santa for?
"A real ALIVE squirrel.  Not in a cage.  Not to live outside.  An alive one that can run loose in the house."  Squirrels.
So thank you, tiny, baby Jesus, for FurReal friends and this newborn chimpmunk.  It eats.  It moves.  It chatters.  It doesn't bite or have rabies.  It's not a real ALIVE squirrel, but it will do for my quirky, silly, bean eating, jegging wearing, squirrel loving, girl.

    LOVE the hat, and cuddly squirrels! (sans rabies)

  2. I have a close firend who grew up in rural Alabama. She had REAL LIVE squirrels for pets. Aren't you glad you live in SoCal?

    (Target had a squirrel foam ornament craft kit thing. I'm sure you saw it but I thought I'd mention it just in case)

  17. I love your Lucy almost as much as I love my Lucy.

    Personality coming out of every pore.

  18. Trader Joe's Marinated Bean Salad. Mason could eat it until he's sick. I thought he was the only weirdo kid who actually asked for random food like black beans. A can of that stuff presented with the squirrel would probably equal heaven for Lucy.

  22. Oh my goodness! And I thought it was funny when my son asked for a "real alive monkey" several years ago for his birthday. "But he can stay in my room and hang out on my shoulder, Mom!"
    I think squirrel beats monkey. Too cute!

  23. My darling son (5 y.o) has wanted a monkey for the last 3 years, we also got him a fur-real animal for his birthday a few weeks ago! He LOVES it. Hope you have a fabulous Christmas!
