The Weekend Finally!!!

I am so ready for the weekend. Can't wait for it to be here! I am getting my hair cut this afternoon and can't wait! I have a new hair do to try out if my hairdresser thinks that it will look ok on my fat little face! Then tomorrow morning Tori and my mom and I are going shopping for Tori's Easter/Birthday dress. Since her birthday is on Easter this year that makes the dress extra special. I love going shopping for her dress. Plus she loves trying them ALL on and modeling each one. For Easter it is so important to get her dress first so I know how to dress everyone else. Color wise. Hope you all have a great weekend. Here's a nursery rhyme in millenium terms for ya'!! My mom always told me I was the little girl with the curl because of my bad bad calic right in the middle of my forehead. Oh if you could see the pictures.....

There was a little girl who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good, she was very, very good.
But when she was bad....
She got a fur coat, jewels, a waterfront condo, and a sports car.

Not Impressed!'s Tuesday and we all know what that means. I had to weigh in this morning. I GAINED 1 pound. I am not impressed what so ever. AND to top it off there are Girl Scout Cookies in my house. I have done really good weeding out the sweets and not eating like I used to but come on...Girls Scouts??? Let me break it down for you in the Calorie terms. Following are the cookies Rick brought home and their calories:
Peanut Butter Patties: 150 calories for 2 cookies
Peanut Butter Sandwiches: 160 calories for 3 cookies
Thin Mints: 160 calories for 4 cookies
Those damn Girls Scouts. Do you remember watching "So I Married an Axe Murderer"? The part when they are over at his parents house for dinner and Mike Meyers (in the father role) is talking about "THE COLONEL" and how he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken to make you crave it? I think that the Girl Scouts do the same thing. Thank god it is only once a year! I am going to have to go to Curves everyday this week just to burn off the cookies. AAAARRRGGGHH!!

Good Monday Morning!!

I know that Monday's aren't always good. Back to work, back to school and along 5 days until the weekend. But I did get alot done this weekend that I was wanting to do and so that feels good. My mom is feeling better and that always makes me happy. I hate it when she is down. Friday night I talked Rick into rearranging our bedroom. He was NOT happy about it but he did it and I absolutely love it. There is more room and I have more room to scrapbook. I got new curtains for my room and re-decorated the kids bathroom. I changed it from fish to safari! They really like it which is always a plus. Saturday night we went to Valley Center for a get together with Rick's family. The kids played so hard with their cousins. They don't hardly ever get to see them so it was nice for them be able to reconnect and play. We looked at ton's of pictures and alot of them were too funny. The drive home was so interesting because it was about 7:30 and there was snow everywhere and it was crazy. It was good times that I will never forget with the kids in the car. The radio wasn't really on and Tori was in the back singing and Chase was up front with me being Mr. Navigation and watching the snow. Talk about a side seat driver. The only bad thing about this weekend was the fact that we were busy busy I ate like crap. Fast food and snack food and pop. I am dreading weigh in tomorrow. Hopefully I haven't gained a bunch of it back!!!

Check me OUt

What a suprise to login to my blog this morning to see that it has changed again! That Summer always keeping me up to date! Did you see my ticker??? Disney is getting so close! Since it's Tuesday I did get up and weigh this morning and dropped another 1/2 pound somewhere! Don't care where just as long as it doesn't find it's way back! Now that we have all been through the ringer with the flu like symptoms poor little Natey has it! He's doing the barking cough! Poor Baby! On a creative note though I have done 3 scrapbook pages in the last 2 nights! I am on a roll! I sure wasn't at Crop*A*Ganza but I seem to be now! I told Rick when I came home from Ganza that I didn't have the scrappin' space that I needed (because I am having to do it in my bedroom) and that he needed to make it happen! So hopefully starting Thursday (his day off) we are going to start completely rearranging our room. It won't be easy (bcuz we have a monster bed) but I think he knows my need for "my" space! One of the layouts I did get done was my March calendar and I can't believe how much stuff we have going on in March! Lot's and Lot's! It will definantely be an exciting month! Can't wait!

Finally! This week seems like it has drug on forever! With the sickness and school parties, Valentines day, band concert! I am ready to do nothing for the weekend. I need to get caught up on housework and go grocery shopping tomorrow and other than that I am in! Especially if the weather is going to get all crappy! I am ready for spring. I want to get out my flip flops and capri pants and I got some of the coolest toe bling for summer! So it needs to hurry up and get here! Anyways...have a great weekend!!!

I have been among the sickly just like the rest of you ganza goers! I came home Sunday afternoon about 5:00 and was running a fever, body aches, headache...the works. Woke up Monday morning with a fever of 103 and major body aches. Rick went to the store and got me some medicine and it is slowly getting better. I can't believe how many people were sick this year. Stupid Winter. But it was really nice to see everyone and laugh and laugh some more. I didn't hardly get anything done which really bummed me out but oh well. Now that it is over I am really trying to focus on my trip. Did you see that it is REALLY raining in Orlando. Like MONSOON weather??? Hello, I hope that state gets all of that out of it's system before we get there. I hope this finds you all well and I will try to get pics of the couple of things I did do at Ganza up tomorrow. Later :)~

It's Friday...Field Trip Day

TO GANZA!!!!!!!!! I hope that you all are as excited as I am! I have not scrapbooked in 4veR and can't wait to get caught up on some of my stuff! I am already getting the guilt trip from Tori. I have been for the last 3 days! Ever since she saw it on the calender. Thanks again to Rick and my mom and dad for keeping them this weekend for me!! See you all soon!!!

It's official

I think I have what the kids had! Although I am hoping that I am on the tail end of it because I have been crappy for the last 4 days. My stomach is still upset but at least I don't have that "I'm gonna puke" sensation anymore! Thank the lord too because it's only 2 days until crop time and I AM going. BTW Tori had a blast on Friday. I got to the school to pick her up and she wanted to know why I was taking her out of class early. I said I needed to go to Wichita and couldn't get back in time to get her. She said, " can get me!" We stopped and picked up my mom and when I was getting to the movie theatre I told her that I was taking her to see Hannah Montana. She was really excited. She then decided it was ok to not be in school. She sang along for almost the whole thing. She kept reaching her hand out trying to touch things (because it was 3D)! It was too funny. I'm so glad I got to take her! Anyway...see you all soon!!!

Yeah for the Weekend!

I think! I am afraid that this weekend may be like the last one! Nate woke up at 5:00 this morning throwing up every hour and hasn't stopped! I think he must be getting whatever Tori had! All I know is that if I am going to get it then it better come on NOW because I am NOT missing Crop*A*Ganza! I would go as far as having a little throw up bucket beside me at my table so you have all been warned now! ANYWAY...Tori went to school today and I hoping that she makes it all day. I think she will. I am going to get her at 2:00 (an 1:15 minutes early) and taking her to see the new Hannah Montana 3-D movie that starts at 2:45pm. I had already bought the tickets last weekend and planned this before she got sick. I think it will be a fun girls day out and see one of her most favorite people in the world. And it's only 2nd grade so she can't be missing much, Right? I know she has been out of school pretty much ALL week but we have been doing her work at night so we aren't behind. Oh well...have a great weekend!!!
