One day…she’ll know the truth

Meet Alexandria. She’s the daughter of my dear friends Caroline and Michael. Bless their hearts, they are huge fans of the website and they thought it would be funny to send me pictures of Alexandria’s first taste of green beans.

Here she is eyeing the dreadful thing. I’m sure her one-year-old brain is trying to comprehend why something so cheery and colorful could have such a scary texture.


She takes her first bite and wonders what that weird smell is as she looks longingly at her mother on the other side of the camera lens as if to say, “Are you sure I should be putting this in my mouth?” Then she swallows.


And she likes it. Clearly…she’ll eat anything.


You are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen and I am very proud of you for eating healthy. But seriously. Green beans?

One of these days, dear Alexandria, you will know the truth. Green beans are evil. It’s my opinion. But it’s true. Remember…I’m the one who ALWAYS has gum and some sort of sugary candy in my purse. I know what is good and what is not. Trust me.

Wait until you discover Pringles. Now there’s a day to look forward to! Let’s hope your parents document that moment in time to remember forever as well.

If only someone would spare her the suffering of having to eat them! She’s just a little gal!!

When I was a child I HATED even the smell of green beans. The family joke was to put a big, steaming bowl of the vile things in front of me and watch me gag. I have since gotten older (not necessarily grown up) and can manage to eat them, but they certainly aren’t my favorite.

Fried green beans my friend. Fried green beans. TGI Friday’s is on to something with the frying of green beans.

And she is just beyond CUTE!!!

My mom tried to force me to eat green beans as a child. I thought they were nasty and absolutely refused. I felt so vindicated when I learned canned green beans have absolutely no nutritional value at all.

Will you please ask your friend where she got that adorable dress (hopefully some ‘brilliant’ website). I would love to order one for a friend’s daughter. Thanks!

Hey Nicole,

The dress is from our friend Delaine’s store. Go to (3 Threads and Scott-Wynne Outfitters). You may have to call/write and describe it. I’m not sure if it’s on the website. She picked out the dress and embroidered the name.

Thanks for the interest! She is SO CUTE! Even with that green bean in her fist.

Would love your thoughts! Click here to share.x
