Monday, Monday!!!

What did you do today?

I cleaned out my bathroom cabinets. I tossed a bunch of nail polish. I have no idea how old they were. I don't wear nailpolish on my fingernails, I prefer the french manicure. To me it is just very clean looking, and on my toes, they are pink. They were old, how old? I have no idea...LOL.

I also put all my cleaning supplies in a very big tupperware container. I will use what I have until I move. Then I will give my cleaning supplies to my neighbors/friends, if they want any of it. I can't take any cleaning supplies with me, so when we get settled in our new home I will have to start fresh:)

For dinner tonight we had pork chops, peas, steamed rice, salad and steamed artichokes. I hope you all have a wonderful evening:) It is raining really hard right now. Stay warm!


Sunday, February 26, 2012


It is supposed to start raining tonight at about midnight and last through out tomorrow. I so enjoy rainy days.

Today was a very nice Sunday. We had tacos for dinner. Last night's dinner was Tri-Tip on the grill. Tomorrow will be pork chops. I also have some artichokes to cook tomorrow, the kids LOVE them.

We have the mover's all lined up. They should arrive at our new house just in time for us. It is a lot of house, and we don't have the furniture to fill it...LOL. We will just start to decorate room by room. It will be sooo nice to have room to move. We have completely outgrown this house.

The awards show is on tonight, you can't help hearing about it. Do I watch it? No, those shows have never interested me. Have I seen any of the movies? Nope......there is only one movie I want to see, and that is The Help. I am sure it is nominated from all the reviews I have heard about it.

I just gave little Kevin his bath, and now I must clean the kitchen. You all have a wonderful Sunday!

I am a SAHM!
I am happy.
I am doing what I have always wanted to do and that is being a wife and mother.
I love dressing like a girl, looking like a girl, doing things girls do. I am a girl :)
I am thankful God made me a girl, I embrace it. I love everything there is about being a girl.

I am appreciated and loved by my family, which makes me a very happy and loved SAHM :)
There is nothing more satisfying to me then what I am already doing.

Thank you Lord for all my many blessings!!

When are you most motivated?
I seem to get really motivated after dinner, when I am cleaning up the kitchen. It kind of goes from there..Start cleaning the kitchen, taking out trash, throwing a load in the washer...etc.....

Tonight's dinner we had Chili cheese dogs and french fries.
I used turkey chili, turkey hot dogs and baked french it was semi healthy...LOL.

Tonight's Dinner;

Pulled Pork
Macaroni and Cheese

It was a fun dinner.

Oh, what to write? Today was back to school. Tuesday's are always early days, so that was nice. Kevin was back at work too. I drove my new car today, which I am still getting used too. It is really nice.
It was really chilly in the morning and then it gets warmer in the afternoon.

I re-packed that box the mover said he would re-pack..LOL. I couldn't help myself.

When we moved here, we knew we would be eventually be moving back to Georgia. I still can't believe we are actually going back, YaY! We rented this home. As beautiful as this home is, I couldn't imagine paying the amount of money they want for it...way too much. Our rent is high too, we pay $2,300 a month. I am so hoping we get our deposit back. We gave a $3,000 deposit, so it would be really nice to get some of that back. I know we aren't responsible for normal wear and tear, but everyone's idea of wear and tear is there own. When I was a property manager, I overlooked the little things that I knew I could fix. Most everyone got their deposit back.

Dinner is all cleaned up and the dishwasher is going.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday evening.
Sleep well!!

Monday :o)

I hope everyone had a wonderful day!

We had two more movers come today to give estimates. Talk about invasion of privacy...LOL. They were opening things up that I was not prepared for them to open...LOL. That sure gets you motivated to clean. My husband picked the mover that he liked the best. It can get a bit stressful. I have packed boxes and one of the movers said he would have his movers repack this one box for me....Um, okay...LOL. I am a little OCD when it comes to my is hard for me to see strangers packing and touching my stuff....

For dinner I put a pork roast in the crockpot and made mashed potatoes and gravy, carrots and a salad.

The best part of the weekend was my husband got me a new car..he traded in my Trailblazer for a Ford Edge, it is so pretty and I love the new car smell.

Sunday, February 19, 2012


Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. We are having a nice weekend here. There is no school tomorrow and Kevin has the day off too, YaY!

We are just getting ready for our move. We have to be in Georgia on April 1st, so that is pretty exciting having a date. So, we have to leave here before then to get there and set up house in time for Kevin to start work and Alexis to start school :)

Have a wonderful Sunday evening!!

4 Day Weekend!!

Here are some boxes all packed and ready :)

Now just another 60 or so to go.....

Hopefully my husband will know of an exact day today. It will be around late March or early April...I will love to know more of an exact date though. We had one mover come over Monday and give us an estimate...we have two more to go. I am trying to be patient, but I so can not wait to go :)

Dentist for Alexis today. Her spacer had come out, and they need to recheck her and maybe put it back in. So I will be getting her out of school early.

It has been quite chilly this past week, and it rained a lot yesterday. I love the rain and enjoyed watching it fall from inside the warm home:) I put my birds in front of the windows so they can watch the rain.

Have a great Thursday!! 4 day weekend, woohoo!!!!!!!!!

These are the Whoopie Pies I made for Valentines. They are Pillsbury. Very easy to make. Cute, Huh?

My husband gave me flowers and a certificate to the nail salon. The nail salon is one of my favorite places to go, and he always remembers that. I love my husband so much. I am so blessed to have him as my husband!!! He treats me like a princess everyday, not just Valentines.

Happy Valentine's Day !

Hope everyone has a special day today :)

Happy Sunday

“May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.”

~~~~~Irish blessing~~~

Slow Cooker Saturday

This is the kind of crockpot I have:)

I am slow cooking a beef roast today. My home smells amazing:)
I am always baking fresh bread.

My husband has booked three appointments of different movers to come next week to give us estimates of how much it will cost to pack everything and move it across the country. Well, I am already ahead of them...since I have been packing...LOL. I told my husband they can pack things up but there are certain things I want to do myself...LOL. KWIM?

Oh, we went shopping and got the kids there Valentine gifts:)

Have a great Saturday!

Thursday, February 09, 2012


Today was shopping day. I always enjoy putting everything away in the kitchen and planning meals.

Little K is sooooooooooo much better. It was rough, I can do okay on losing one nights sleep but losing two nights sleep was hard. We both got a much needed night's sleep last night.

Still busy getting everything ready for the move. I will be so happy when we are there and in our new home, surrounded by so much family.

Happy Day!

The Thing?

Have any of you ever seen this sign?...LOL.

Oh, it got the best of us, and yes we did stop to see the "Thing" on our drive across country.....You see these billboard signs for it, for hundreds and hundreds of miles, so when you finally get to where it is, the curiosity gets the best of you...LOL.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Tuesday!

Well, my little boy is sick now. I am not sure if you remember, first Alexis was sick, then I got it, now my little boy:( I have been playing Nurse Mommy today, making sure he is comfy!!

Dinner is up in the air.
Tony won't be home for Dinner, Kevin won't be home until late.
So it is just Alexis and Little Kevin.
So, something they will like, and easy on Little K's tummy!

13 Boxes!

My Box count upstairs is 13. I have packed up everything in my closet that is non-essential at the moment. It looks so spacious and empty. I vacuumed it and it looks so clean:)

My Box count downstairs is 10.

I can not even express how excited we all are to be going. My daughter has expressed the most excitement. She has always wanted to move back there. She was born there and has gone back every year, sometimes twice. She doesn't really remember the year we lived there when she was 4-5, but she is very close to all our family out there. This is going to be such a good thing to have all this family support with my children. Tony is back home with us and he will be moving to Georgia with us too:)

Okay, today was kind of chilly. Cloudy all day. The rain is supposed to come tonight and last all day tomorrow until Wednesday morning.

Kevin was not home for dinner tonight, so we had a kid friendly dinner. We had cheese stuffed hotdogs, corn, and cut up cucumbers.

You all have a WONDERFUL Monday evening xoxox

Sunday, February 05, 2012

Happy Sunday!

All I hear about today is the I watch it? No....LOL.

I am almost better, I think another good nights sleep and I should be fine. The rain is supposed to be coming this week. I just love rainy days:)

The kitchen is all clean from dinner, so I can now relax and get ready for the coming week.

Our Sunday Dinner was :
Pork Chops
Steamed Broccoli
Green Salad

You may notice I cook a lot of broccoli, MY KIDS LOVE IT, so I cook it a lot...LOL. They like all veggies, but for some reason they really love broccoli :o) I call them "Little Trees"

Have a great Sunday Evening

Saturday :o)

I had to drive to John Wayne today and pick my husband up. He had been in Georgia all week, house hunting :)
I am so happy to have him back home!!!!
I am feeling better then I did yesterday, I don't have the chills anymore, just a cough..I hope it doesn't keep me up all night.

I packed another box today too.....It is amazing the things you find while you pack. I found this really cute dress that I had put up high on the shelf in the closet. I don't know why I put it there.....Maybe when I was pregnant?? I don't know..LOL.
Tonight's dinner was:
Macaroni and cheese


Friday, February 03, 2012


Not much of a post today. I think I caught what my daughter had. I am chilly and achy and feeling a bit rundown..BUT, I am trudging through...LOL.

Dinner tonight is easy:
Mashed potatoes and Gravy
Steamed veggie:)

Hopefully an early bedtime for me.

Have a wonderful Friday!!

"The woman who makes a sweet, beautiful home, filling
it with love and prayer and purity, is doing something better than
anything else her hands could find to do beneath the skies." ~ J.R.

My friend Mary posted this quote on Facebook, and I just thought it was lovely. I wanted to share it on my blog with all of you, and keep it safe here, so I can remember it:)

Hope you all had a wonderful day.
Mine was busy....
Cleaned out the Guinea Girl's Cage..cleaned Tiki's perch, vacuumed, Detailed a lot of things in the kitchen like getting the grease buildup off the top of my microwave. How does the grease get up there...LOL. I washed the baseboards too. Lots to do, before the "BIG" move.
SUPER EXCITED, can you tell?
Packed another box...and starting another.

While we drive across country, I want to be able to take as many pictures as I can and post them here. I have driven across the country many times, and never get tired of it, so many things to see. Alexis is at the age, that I hope she can remember the trip.

Have a great evening my friends:)
