From the little one

“Mommy, I don’t want to wear this shirt right now.  Can I just be in my boobies?”


I Love Toys

26 Sep

Okay, so yesterday as I was channel surfing I ran across VH1’s I Love Toys.  This show is awesome.  My whole body is physically tired from the jaunt down memory lane.  It was great to see all of the toys, commercials, etc. that took me immediately back to my childhood.  I kept calling everyone like it was the first time it had ever been on, then I googled it this morning and found that it first premiered in 2006.  Guess I’m a bit behind.  Oh, well.  I taped them and can’t wait to watch them and laugh some more.  Ahh, the good ‘ol days.

Back again

24 Sep

I couldn’t say anything about my weekend plans earlier, because we were scheming up a surprise for my twin sister, Amanda. My brother-in-law, Andy, was planning a surprise birthday party for her and called up the folks to invite them. They bought plane tickets and were ready to go. I was surprised by my own husband on Tuesday with a plane ticket to attend as well.  This made posting and talking to my sister very difficult, because I had to stifle my enthusiasm.

We left Friday afternoon via Southwest.  Amanda’s in-laws picked us (Mom, Dad, Stefanie ‘my other sister’, and myself) up and we headed straight to El Torito for the fiesta.  My parents were in the room at the time of the surprise, and to throw her off, Stefanie and I hid in the bar until a few minutes later to really surprise her.  She was in shock for the remainder of the evening.

Saturday we had breakfast at Brookfields.  YUMMY!  When we went up to surprise her last year, we feasted at the same restaurant, and I was looking forward to a return visit.  They have a huge cinnamon roll, which they then dip into french toast batter and throw in the skillet.  Soooooo good!  My scale reflects my indulgence. The boys indulged in college football all day, and us girls played “store” at the self check-out of the grocery story, and “beauty salon” as I colored Stefanie’s hair.  Just a nice kick back Saturday.  That night after dinner we played two versions of Scene It!.  We first played the Disney version, which even using the “adult cards” was still too easy.  The three sisters blasted the other team away.  However, when we moved on to the original version, the sisters ran into some trouble.  I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time, maybe even my whole life.  I still get the giggles just thinking about the fun we had.  Good times for sure.

Sunday we went to church where Andy had to perform double duty of song leading and preaching, because the pastor was sick.   I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love to hear that man sing.  🙂  We had lunch together after church before packing up and heading back home.  Too short of a trip indeed, but lots of fun, and I’m glad we got to do it!  Here are some pictures of our time.
