Yesterday, my daughter turned nine years old. At first she wanted a Disneyland party, but she ended up going to one with her cousin. So she changed her mind, so now not this weekend, but the next one, we are going to have a bouncy house, cotton candy machine and a snow cone machine, we are going to grill hamburgers and hotdogs. It should be fun. Last night for her birthday we took the whole family out to dinner, then we took her shopping with the money she received. Our present to her was a touch screen computer.

So, now it is a new day and I must get everything back to normal. Laundry, cleaning etc......

The weather here in San Clemente, Ca, has actually been chilly. I love summer rainstorms too.

We brought home so much leftover food from the restaurant last night, Kevin said that is what he wants for dinner when he gets home, so dinner will be VERY easy:)

Happy Wednesday!

Well, it is Friday and it is also a teacher furlough day. So no school today, double yay. Last night was open house, so that was nice. I have been in her classroom a hundred times, but it was nice for Kevin to see everything, and Alexis was so proud to show off all her work:)

We had tacos for dinner. Tonight we will have pork chops.

I am now starting on the toy boxes, organizing those, throwing away broken toys, etc. That is a job!

...and yes, toilet paper rolls must be over.....LOL.

The weather today is overcast, but nice. I just got back from a trip to Walmart. Got a few things I needed. I also needed a new lipstick, so I got a pretty light pink. I was so in love with all the sundresses out. I can't wait to get a couple:)

Happy Friday everyone!

P.S. Would you let your 16 year old sail around the world?? My answer would be NO!

Ants~~~~ Here they come~~~AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I went to Walmart over the weekend, and I bought some more Tupperware. Everything is going into containers. I forgot the ant spray though, ahh! So I really need to get some asap! Last year my son dropped a cracker in his toy box, and let me tell you the ants went crazy. I am not a fan of ants...LOL.

Tonight's dinner will be chicken tenders~~I may bread a few and cook a few in a marinade.

Okay, I have a question: Toilet paper roll, Over or under? :::Giggles:::

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. The weather was just perfect here.

Also, the next Food Network Star started last night. I TIVO'd it, I can't wait to see it.

Have a great Monday!

Happy Saturday!

My husband let me sleep in today...I usually wake up when my little alarm wakes me up, A.K.A Little Kevin...LOL. Well, this morning I actually got to sleep in later then usual, it was a nice treat. Then my husband wakes me up and says he wants to take us to breakfast, so we went to IHOP---Alexis got the funny face, Kevin got the Silver dollar pancakes with eggs and bacon, I got the two egg breakfast and Big Kevin got the steak and for Tony, he wanted to stay in bed...That's a teenager for you...LOL.

Then we headed to Walmart, and little Kevin got some new clothes, and Alexis got a new outfit for Thursday, she is going to a Symphony, how fun. After that we headed to the market and did some food shopping. Ohhh, I also got some Tupperware, yay!!

Kevin rented some movies, so they are downstairs watching some movies, and I am about to do some things around the house. It has been a nice day, I hope yours is lovely too:)

Tonight's dinner will be pork chops. I made fried okra last night, and they turned out awesome:)

Thanks for all you sweet comments.

Happy Friday!!

I love all days of the week, but I especially love Fridays! Fridays to me means everyone will be together for the next couple of days, and that makes me so happy. Fridays are also days that I try and finish up a lot of the housework, so I don't have to do too much on the weekends, but that doesn't always happen. Especially today, my to-do list is rather long. I have changed my big shopping day to Saturdays, because my husband comes with me. It is also nice, because he gets certain cuts of meat that he really likes, and it helps me plan my menu. I still going during the week, because there are just things you sometimes need and didn't anticipate running out of, kwim? I went to the market yesterday, because my husband was out of Coke, and we needed more milk, I buy two gallons at a time. We do go through a lot of milk, 2 gallons are usually about 5 dollars. The kids also like Kefir, especially the blueberry kind. I will buy that when it is on sale. Last week it was 3.00, yesterday it was over 5 dollars. I also needed yogurt. Little Kevin just Loves, Loves, Loves yogurt...oh and cottage cheese. I have to say my kids like just about everything. The only thing my oldest doesn't like is green beans. My daughter, I can not think of anything at this moment, hmmmm. Little Kevin, he likes and will try everything. I do have to be careful with him though because of his allergies.

I just absolutely love being a wife and mother. Nothing makes me happier then taking care of my family. Planning menus, doing laundry, making good food, loving them, playing with them, laughing and crying with them. They are my everything, and I thank God everyday for what he has given me.

Okay, now, I have lots I want to accomplish in the next couple of days. My car for one thing needs a good cleaning. I can't believe the junk that collects on the floor in the back..LOL. I have got a pretty good handle on my laundry too, YaY!!

The weather has been nice, summer dress time. I love wearing my dresses, I love being a girl...LOL. If you got this far through my ramble, have a wonderful Friday!!! XOXO

Oh, on the menu, something with ground beef, I am going to look around the net for a recipe:)
(I just like these old photos, I know sometimes they don't go with a post...LOL)

Happy June/ Happy Thursday!

I am so excited, school is almost over! I can not wait! Yesterday as I was driving home from dropping off my daughter at school, I was coming back in my neighborhood and someone had put a dresser outside with a free sign on it. I grabbed a friend and we got it into my car and I brought it home. It was in perfect condition and looks perfect in my daughter's room. SOOO, I spent yesterday going through all her clothes and reorganizing. I don't know why I didn't get a second dresser sooner. It is so nice to be able know what clothes she has, instead of having to dig through piles.

Today, I am going to make bread, work on laundry (of course..LOL). Then when I go to pick up Alexis, I will stop at the market and do some grocery shopping. I love having my kids with me when I shop.

My baby turned 3 in April, can you believe that? We had his Birthday at Chuck E Cheese, and he was just in love with that big mouse. It was rather cute. I love the games, especially Skeet Ball. My oldest, now 18 is a working man. He got his first job, and he is doing great. My sweet girl will be turning 9 this month and she wants to go to Disneyland for her birthday. That will be fun, it will also be Little Kevin's first time going. My husband got a promotion, the money is good, but I miss him when he has to travel.

I have my Topsy-Turvey going again, and I am very closely watching for those worms that attacked it last year.

That is all for now. Have a glorious Thursday:)

P.S. Are you planning on watching the new season of Kate plus Eight?
