It's Sistah HB in Da House!

I just got an email from my mom. She sent me a picture of her from 1966. She's standing in front of the house she grew up in, and ya'll? She looks fabulous? Is that blouse not delightful. Tom's BFF Tim Gunn would definitely approve.

At the time this picture was taken, my mother already had five young children. And I wasn't one of them. Which explains the not-yet-content look on her face. Can you see it? Because it is most certainly there.

My mom knew there was something bigger and better to come into her life and it would happen the very next year when I was born. Apparently I didn't complete her either, though. Which accounts for Sisters Seven and Sassy.

I just take pleasure in knowing that I am in her favorite. Oh, who am I kidding? Despite her denials, we all know she has always loved her boys best. They didn't cause her as much worry as us girls. Goody-Two-Shoe Jerks.

What's that? You want to comment? Just click on the itty-bitty words below that say "Gimme Some Sugar". Can you see them? Good. We can't wait to chat with you.

Eight kids huh? My mom is the oldest of eight kids. I'm pretty sure she decided she didn't like the excess "love" with such a big family because there were only four of us. :0)

I love old pictures like that. I need to go raid my Moms pictures so I can scan some of them in.

Hi Honey Bunch,
I just love old photos and that one is cool :)I'm a sucker for any type of old image in my family.

I just want to say that I have been enjoying my trip through this blog !
I'm the eldest of 2 sisters, and with a difference of 7 years + between myself & my only sis.So once a sis, always a sis for better or worse !

I'm looking forward to following you & your sis' posts.
Keep up the good work & take care.

Yay, I'm so glad you're back! :)

She looks awesome. Wow 5 kids, I can't even fathom what that would be like. Is this in the South or somewhere in Michigan?

That would be South Carolina, Miss Amanda.

Great shirt!
I don't look that good and I only have one kid! :)

And my brother always got the best stuff, too. Creeps.
