nothing to say really.....just living my normal, boring, crazy everyday life......the only excitement that I've had lately was going to the outlet mall in Tulare! It was awesome....well I really only went to the Lane Bryant outlet....and it was heavenly!!! I got the clothes that I'm going to wear to the Dr.Phil show!!! YAY!!! I'm so excited we leave tomorrow morning at 9:15 and we will get back to Bakersfield around 8:00 tomorrow night! I will have to write about all the excitment when I return home! I'm going to go see the House Bunny with Christina on Sunday!! (hopefully) Life with children is in no way, shape, or form predictable, so we'll just have to play it by ear. I wish I had something important to put on here..........OOHHH>>> My mom sent me her serger sewing machine!!! SWEET! Christina and I messed around with it this morning...it's awesome...and I think I already broke it....LOL....I need to re-thread it. If you know what a serger is, you will know that that isn't as easy as it sounds......so I guess I'm off to do that! Maybe next time I will have something important to write.....just a thought.

What a great day!

I had a fantastic day today! It was my dear friend's little boy's 3rd birthday today! She had a fantastic party at the park~cake and sundaes! I ended up passing the time away playing badminton with her 14 year old daughter!! It was quite a workout. I tacked my quilt last night...so that's all said and done. Here it is!! I'm very proud of this!!!

The kiddos were relatively calm today....no huge calamity, except for the fact I am trying to teach them to drink out of a regular cup....wow....talk about water spots...everywhere! I also put together the jeep that my Daddy got them for their b-day....it's sitting in the garage charging as I type. I can't wait to show it to them!!! All charged and ready to go!!
My friend Christina and I are fixing to embark on a new project!! SO EXCITED!!! We are going to make "I SPY" pillows for a set of twins that are down on their luck. She read that one of the boys was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. They live in Iowa, but are relocating to NYC, because the best Dr's are there. So we figured we could make them something to do, seeing as how they are going to be spending a whole lotta time in the hospital. I looooved the idea....so we'll see what we can come up with. I was going to have my MIL embroider the list to go on the back....but it'll cost too much....so I'm just going to print directly on the fabric, by using my printer at home! You are supposed to be able to iron on something to the back of the fabric to make it stiff enough to go through your printer....we'll see how that goes also....I'll keep you all updated!
So I must say that all in all was a great day! Only a few weird words exchanged with my Mommy....so that was good...I'm having issues there....just me....I was told once that I was a "SPOILED ROTTEN LITTLE BRAT." I adamantly denied that claim....but thinking about it now....maybe that lady was right. Ehhh...I'm a big girl...my Aunt Carla once told me to "Put on your big girl panties and deal with it". I may have to take her up on that suggestion....we'll see.

The first post....

There are a few things in this world that melt my heart...very few...but the one thing that gets me everytime is my kids. Their new hobby has been singing...they both love to sing...they don't even sing words...just nonsense...and it's the cutest thing ever. My Jaxon is either trying to sing Mary had a little Lamb or the Alphabet...lol. Not sure but either way it's adorable. My Madi loves to sing the Elmo's World theme.....the one that comes on Sesame Street...very cute. They both proceeded to serenade me and everyone in ToysRUs today....very cute. And the giggles...even when I've had the worst day ever with them...all they have to do is make that little giggle and I melt....I'm owned. I've been dealing with alot of inner demons lately...and those two can pull me out in the blink of an eye...the bat of an eyelash...I thank God everyday that he gave me these two little farts....I really don't know what I would be doing with my life. So with that being said......I want to set the record straight. I know that many people look down on the fact that a SAHM is a career, but it really is. I use to be one of those people....I have come into contact with so many amazing women that are proud to be just who they are. So I have to say that never in a million years did I think I would be a PROUD member of a stay at home mom's meetup group, a PROUD pee-pee/poo-poo in the potty dancer, or a PROUD cooking/sewing/diaper changing/vomit cleaner-upper/cleaning the house every five seconds mom. I always wanted the career....and apparently this is my calling. I fit the position well, and I love every minute of it...even the ones I bitch about. It is my life...take it or leave it. I think I'll take it.
