a day in the life (carmen)

Filed under: carmen — Jana @ 11:51 am

Carmen is a very busy girl lately.

She tries on at least 10 different outfits a day, ranging from the clothes I put her in for the gym, dresses out of her closet, shirts and dresses from my closet, and princess dress-ups.  Needless to say, a lot of laundry has to get done around here.

She likes to “knit”… although her technique is still… developing.

She likes to garden, but only in her undies.

She just recently had her preschool graduation (although not really, since she still has another year before kindergarten).  Once again she wouldn’t put down the baby doll the whole time, but whatever.

She is filled to the brim with sass 90% of the time, but in that other 10% when she is just so charming and sweet, she totally makes up for it.

Carmen was helping me bake a blueberry pie yesterday (she LOVES to bake) she stirred the berries and helped roll the pie crust.  After dinner we were each eating a slice.

I asked her what she thought of the pie.  She replied

“Well, it’s…




(climbs out of her chair and slowly starts walking towards me)




THE BEST THING I’VE EVER HAD!!!!” (lunging at me and wrapping her arms around my neck)

ps. the pie recipe was from pioneer woman(also her pic, my pie was not as pretty)… and yes, everything she makes is seriously the best.  I go to her site almost every day to find something to make.



  1. Adorable. If I had to pick one word for Carmen, it would be charming. Love her.

    And how dare you bring up Pioneer Woman while I am off sweets?

  2. Love all the news about Carmen! We love her just the way she is!
    Pie sounds divine, especially baked by the two of you!

    It doesn’t look like the morning glory seeds sprouted? About 15 of mine didn’t either. One did.

    Love and miss you!

  3. Her knitting is awesome…but not as awesome as her choice of gardening attire. Way to get back to nature, Carmen! :)
