I have always been drawn to the color red.
My family room couch is red.
I love red cherries.
I think red lipstick is smashing.
I love the color of red apples. However, I don't like apples.
I love the color of red with the color aqua blue.

Any-hoo...there is a story here...

I went downstairs tonight to watch House.
Yes, aside from Lost it is my favorite show.
I was not in the mood to watch Lost.
I'm not sure about you but I have to be focused.
If you blink you could miss the entire highlight of the show.
Wow...I just did it again. I completely got off what I was getting at.
See, I'm not focused enough to watch Lost.

And....I'm back......
I came into my bedroom and this is what I saw.

Bradley has taken up roller blading this week.
He claims he can't do it without big socks.
He decided that he was just going to wear these to bed so he can get up first thing in the morning and roller blade.
*it's morning and he just blew past me and went staight for the blades*

Let's not forget about the watch he's wearing.
I'm assuming it's to time himself.
Not sure what for.
As soon as I find out what it's all about I will let you know.
Would hate to keep ya hanging!

Wait...back to to socks for a sec, why does he pull them up so high?
It almost looks like he tucked his pajama pants into them.

If you click on this photos you will see all my neat little things I pointed out in this pic.
You will also see that only one side of the bed has pillows.
The side with the pillows would be my side.
Hey, a girl needs some serious pillow if she's going to blog from the comfort of her own cozy bed.

Happy Thursday!

ps...did I mention I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this kid??

What a sweetie! I think he is sporting those red socks just right! Your bed is just like mine most nights...full of pillows, laptop in hand and a little boy in the bed (mine prefers his Spiderman slippers, still red!)

Lost was good but I kept having to say to my hubby, "Wait, what just happened? Why did they go there? Wait, huh?!


littlebyrd said...

He is so cute! And the socks just have me lol! Don't you love pictures of them sleeping?

Walking on Sunshine... said...

He's adorable, sleeping in your bed like that. Reminds me of my son. They kind of work their way into your heart and hold on to it real tight, right? Love red as well. Our bedroom is red!!!

I used to do dressed for something special when I was little. My kids still do it. They also want to sleep on top of their covers so they don't have to make their beds in the morning.

Backyard Candle Co. said...

So cute! And it's a good thing you did'nt watch lost last night cause you HAD to be focused! I love that show so much but boy it can be confusing!

LuLu & Co. said...

He is adobable! Red socks are the best! such a fun color I have splashes of red in my home too and I'm wearing a red stripped shirt today! :)

LOL! I so know what Jeanneoli is talking about!! My kids do that too!! And I am LOVING the red socks! Your story is so like my grandmothers about loving red but not loving apples! For as long as I can remember, for every holiday, everybody gives her red apple stuff and she doesn't like apples! I guess since we all knew she liked red we just assumed!! :P Thanks for sharing that about your little guy...I can tell he's a keeper!! :D

i remember sleeping in my clothes the night before when my parents would take us to disneyland. i HAD to be ready to go and FAST.
oh to be a kid again with so much anticipation for the following morning.
thank you for the reminder of innocence and sweet things!

Nice and Easy Antiques said...

Someone will be ready for some serious rollerblading after that restful sleep!

Anne Marie said...

too hilarious...he looks OUT!
and LOVE the socks - my 8 yr. old is into seriously the thickest socks...not for me! give me the flip flops....and I have to say, your little guy must love you SO much....going to your bed instead of his - says a lot.

Tara said...

This is hillarious! I love the socks and that your little boy has his own style so to speak, and the passion for roller blading...awsome!

Nikki said...

Roller blading is hard work -- it's good to prepare while you sleep :)

Melissa Miller said...

Ah Amy you are such a sweet Mom! What a cutie pie he is in his red socks.

I'm with you on anything done in RED!
I just adore it.

Thank you for your kind words on our outdoor spaces.
I appreciate your visits.

Have a blessed and beautiful Mother's Day.

LuLu said...

don't feel bad about ordering Mrs. Meyer's I ordered mine too and then learned that you can sometimes find it at TJMAXX of Marshalls. I don't have a TJMAXX and Marshalls only had 2 bottles of laundry detergent so I bought both to save... it was worth ordering from Mrs. Meyer's I love it!!!!

Sarah said...
