because i'm sure everyone is DYING to know...

i'm sure you were just sitting around thinking, "i wonder what movies & books emmie collins is enjoying these days..."  well, since you're interested i guess i'll share what we've stumbled upon as of late.  since you are likely one of my four friends, or my mom, i've probably already shown you this but last week my momma and i went to a baby sale.  you know one of those consignment sales at a church jam-packed with every kind of kid paraphernalia ever invented and 28,492,394 mom's gold diggin'?  we bought a bunch of goodies but one of my favorite steals was a pack of 10 old library books in a bag, taped shut like fort knox.  i could tell from the spines that even if the books were awful that i'd love them on a shelf in em's room.
but much to my delight, a few of the books are absolute gems!  i have decided that all babies need this book.  it's awesome
here's a little preview [this is just like]:
"a face is so you can make faces.  a face is something to have on the front of your head"
this one made me think of emmie, because her eyebrows are awesome.  i love the quirky illustrations and the words all make me giggle.

another one of the books is 'a kiss for little bear,'  i won't give away the ending but i really want to.  instead i'll just show you the front page.  he gives that picture to his grandma.  ha!
ben and i were blessed to go out on a date not too long ago while our town was blanketed in a blizzard.  the obvious choice of where to spend your snowy date night is a bookstore yes?  in the children's section we found this.  and i am obsessed!  i don't know why i love kid books so much that have weird undertones for kids but i'm just drawn to them.  i mean this book may encourage my daughter to be a thief but i seriously laughed at every page.  if it wasn't $16 i would have bought one for emmie and all her friends.  it won an award.  i'm dying!  read this the next time you're at b&n.
we've continued to read em's jesus storybook bible which will FOREVER be my favorite thing to read to ecb and her favorite book i believe is a sesame street book about bubbles at bathtime.  emmie doesn't even really love baths but she really loves the bubble book.  "bubbles bubbles on my nose, bubbles bubbles on my toes."  what's not to love?

now, i didn't take emmie to the dollar movies but if i had i think she would have loved wreck it ralph.  it was one of those kid movies that as a 27 year old you still think is amazing.  you laugh, you cry, it's really good stuff.  i'm looking forward to getting it froms redbox for benny to see.  he'll totally cry.  there's a little girl in it.  this = waterworks.

also, ecb watched part of aladin while rolling around on the floor yesterday.  she smiled when they sang "a whole new world".  presh.  annnnd, i'm done.  aladin reviews are one step too far.  also, it's 1 am and i just got done enjoying a night full of family, young life club, hangout afterward, late night work and now blogging.  i'm spent and 6:30am will be here shortly.  goodnight world.

oh, and i put this on facebook but it's too funny not to share here.  also, who's on fb these days?  about twenty minutes after i was done eating dinner i found a french fry in my scarf.  that was a low point for me.  what. a. mess.  spring break you can't come soon enough!


  1. I find popcorn in my bra on a regular basis, so I wouldn't feel too bad. ;) Cute books! Glad you and your mom had a good shopping spree!
