It was a fun time - but as you know all of us having kids it is always a ummm lively time.
I have to say my mom is a very beautiful lady - she is amazing and can do anything. She is an inspiriation. I love her more than words can say - I miss seeing her every day. I just have to say when I'm her age, I look half as hot as she does.

This would be Brylee...her Saturday morning breakfast - I ask "Bry what do you want for breakfast?" "mac and cheeezzzee" hmm OK - then I find this.....her propped her pillow up got a blanket - her 'mac n cheese' and her juice box - got all comfy and was watching her toons.
How is it...my son's face always looks like he has rooted around in the dirt? I am talking about 5 minutes after I have washed it....his nose will be black? Like he ran out side and stuck it in the dirt!! And he's inside.....and it's not like we have piles of dirt anywhere!! This is anywhere we go - any where.....I always have to check his nose when we get out of the car to go somewhere - sigh - guess it's a little boy thing - dirt in a ear shot jumps on their faces!
My camra or phone for that matter disappears - I have these all over it...usually followed by a peace sign. Ummm McKenna have you had my camra or phone? Me??
hmmmm?:A night out....you go to take a "hold the camra yourself" shot with the hubs - and this is going on, and didn't even know they were doing that!
ummmm HMMMMM?:This would be my husband and his 2 buddies at one of our coed softball games - yes they did dress like this for the game - and NO they didn't match anyone else...did they care? NO! Was it funny? YES!
I am going to give the pic of the day to: My hubby and his friend Enswing - for having that please mister don't hurt me faces.....Needless to say...there isn't too many dull moments around us - we have lotsa fun. Hope you guys have a wondifferiss day!!!!

This has seems to be happening when someone close to us has a birthday - it's a great excuse to have a NIGHT out. This time it happened to be my cousin's birthday. We decieded to do a sort of theme for this...........WIGS - everyone had to wear wigs. I thought this was a fun idea - and you get to be someone different. I went out and bought my wig - the first I got was a blonde about shoulder length....ummmm I didn't try this on - and I did so when I got home NO NO NO - it wasn't working for me. I called the store and asked if I could exchange it...they said yes - so the next morning I took it back and took McKenna with me. I knew she'd tell me if it looked good or not - because the night before the look on her face told me the blonde wasn't doing it!
I ended up with a reddish colored one...long. See below for our lovely night out........(OH and yea germs did not participate)
On another note..........I won my first award!!!! Mz. Heels from a balancing act in heels gave me my first award!!!! I will be posting more about it later (hopefully tomorrow) and will be passing it along! I am SO excited!!!!!!! Thank you Mzzzzz Heels!!!!

You don't get to choose who your sister is, but you get to choose who your friends are. My sister happens to be one of my bestest friends. She has become a very special part of my life - I don't know what I would do without her. I have watched her grow up (literally) - from a little baby unto a grown woman and mother. I had the very special privilage of being in the room with her when she gave birth to her daughter. I feel very honored.
I love my sister - she is one of the best!!!

OK – where was I going with this?? I’m one of those suckers that just gets sucked right into infomercials, I can just sit there and watch and watch – I cannot help myself! DO they give out subliminal messages?? I mean really – Billy Mays – is he attractive? Um I think not, but when that man is on TV I just stop what I’m doing and have eyeballs glued to the tube! OH and they have that new guy now……Vince (Offer I think is he last name I did have to look this up I’m too sucked in if he even says his name) you know him – the SHAMWOW guy! I still like Billy Mays and his oxyclean J But what is it about these things that get me? It’s not like I actually buy anything……….OR DO I??
Here is where my title comes in….oh how ashamed I am. I was on vacay with my hubs Germs – OK, maybe not vacay – he had a softball Tourney out of town and you know what? I went without the kiddos so umm yes it was vacay (I feel like a bad girl). OK at any rate…he was playing late into the night…I went back to our hotel room..and guess what came on right before my eyes?
You got it……..HIP HOP ABS. WOW I mean wow…..(I don’t know if this is really considered infomercially, but it’s sure close enough I’m a sucker for it). Hmmm I thought to myself this looks really intriguing – they are doing exercises and dancing at the same time, which I LOVE to do….mmm dancing. Well I was very very curious about this. How could you go wrong I ask? It wouldn’t feel like you were actually doing any exercise – right? And boy how they worked their abs…I saw it right there – the guy with the awesome 6 pack pointed it out to me. He showed me all the different muscle groups this video worked. AMAZING! I was hooked…..fully hook, line, and the sinker – I wanted this. Germs came back to the room, and I told him all about it, and I wanted to get it – he of course laughed at me. (I of course didn’t get it right then)
I got home…I looked up their website….it was everything I dreamed of – they told me everything the guy did on TV so this must be REAL. I hit “order now”…gave my credit card and placed the order. I tell you, how could I go wrong – I would be exercising and it would not even feel like it, I would be learning the latest, hippest dance moves, and I would be getting that awesome 6 pack at the same time. I think it was a GREAT deal, and it would arrive in just 4 to 6 weeks. Tick tock, tick tock….ummm it still hasn’t arrived. (Germs asks “SOOOO when’s this video thing you ordered coming in” hee hee hee) Tick tock, tick tock….sigh nothing…it has been AT LEAST 6 weeks, I send them a message – I do not hear from them. Grrrrrrrrr – another message…I’m getting more and more angry. Well I check my bank statement………ummm CREDIT – they refunded my money! HOW DARE THEM – I wanted their video…..I wanted to learn their awesome dance moves and get their amazing 6 pack. The nerve! SIGH – I was SO disappointed.
At any rate – I didn’t pursue it any further….I still weep at the loss. I wanted my hip hop abs ~sniff sniff~, and to learn the sweet dance moves that came along with it. IT’S so unfair. How dare they tempt me with this eye candy.
OK….I’m off – until another tempting infomercial comes on…I may have to get me one of those SHAMWOW’s…those boogers look like they really work – I mean really they couldn’t be anything like the shammy’s we used to buy right – these are made of some space aged do-flunky junk right? They do say 10 years!!!! Until another day !!
When I didn't think there was a special man to be in my life (besides my dad), God sent me a very special person, a person to love me and treat me the way I wanted to be treated - a year leater he sent me another special guy. I am truly blessed.
