Mama McG's World

Time for a vote. 

Should I grow my bangs out?

Time for a vote.

Should I grow my bangs out?

Am I going to have to trade my Sorels back in for my rain boots?

MamaMcg - the awkward years with a guest appearance by an awkward baby Frankie

How awesome was that corduroy, floral Limited Too shirt, I had matching colorful jeans, too.

On April 13, 2001 the world and more importantly, my sister and I, lost one of the greatest, nicest men that I have have ever known in a tragic accident. I love you, too, Daddy and miss you everyday.

Four generations of women on my mom’s side. 

Top left is my great grandmother and namesake, Aline. (You can’t see in the pic but she is wearing an ID bracelet, I am currently wearing that same bracelet now, it reads Aline Harris). 

The top right is my Gram Marty (she was 19 in this photo, 1947). 

The bottom row is my mom and myself. We are probably about the same age in the photos. I think I have my grandmothers eyes and maybe smile, though the jaw is a little different.

Hoping to find a few quick, fun, hopefully kid friendly trips to take this summer.

Last night I was fortunate enough to attend a second Tumblr Book/Supper club. We had a little smaller group this time, including Anne, Kelly, Kelly, myself, and Tria. We met at Kinmont, and enjoyed some great seafood, wonderful conversation, and tasty cocktails/wine. 
The book we discussed was “The Goldfinch” by Donna Tartt. Overall, we liked the book, though we decided that at times it was a bit wordy. We commented on the author’s, Donna Tartt, photo on the book jacket, doesn’t this look like a woman that would write a 780 page, wordy book (though I got the large print book from the library and it was 1300 pages!).
We also talked about who would play the characters if it was turned into a movie, apparently the rights have already been acquired by one of the producers of the “Hunger Games.” On that note, I found this article with just that, ideas for who could play the characters. 
I had a great evening and I’m looking forward to the next book and dinner!

I love this picture of my grandparents. Taken on the Rhine, 1947

He looks too cool in his shades, she looks smitten.
