Fancy Nancy

So, my Mama's newest obsession is Fancy Nancy. See the photo and you'll understand...

Fancy Nancy is this cute little character who thinks that every single thing in life should be fancy (thus my mother's obsession). She wears tiaras and sparkly heels to do everything, including nature walks, science experiments, and, of course, shopping.

The books narratives are actually very quirky and cute. And the illustrations can keep an adult occupied for an hour, much less kids. It's a good vocabulary lesson because she uses "fancy" words for everything and then tells you what they mean.

I'm going to start a Fancy Nancy collection for Lorelei and Aury- if I can talk S into that much fru fru! Check her out for the loves in your life... or maybe your Mama!

A brief excerpt:
"I love being fancy. My favorite color is fuchsia. That's a fancy way of saying purple. And I can't wait to learn French, because everything sounds fancy in French!

Lace-trimmed socks do help me play soccer better! And sandwiches definitely taste better if you stick in frilly toothpicks!"

Seriously, guys... this kid IS my Mama!!

Playing with and keeping up with my nephew and niece take up a lot of my time. Van Geaux takes up the rest of it. Work is an afterthought most days! I like to be outside- but not when it's too hot. I get bored at my desk all day. Niki keeps my world spinning and without her and AC I'd lose it. My work ethic crashes at 4 p.m. daily and I live my sweet puppy and my hedgehog whenever I am not at Niki's. I truly believe naps are quality pass-time events, and sometimes I say bad words at work. I'm pretty sure I'm insane on multiple levels and I believe rules don't apply to me.
It seems that my life is quite entertaining. I didn't realize this myself, but was informed of it by my friends- who are rather entertained by tales of my life occurrences.

I'm far from a professional writer. These are just stories, comments, and other items for simple amusement. Hopefully it's a fun read, as Shannon plans to edit it into a book one day! Maybe we'll become famous, and maybe we'll just have some good laughs at my expense (and some other characters in my life). Either way, happy reading!
