meaning of life

Friday, July 11th, 2014

This morning I was dealing with an annoying issue and found myself thinking how I’m tired of things being annoying. Then it hit me how often I’m thinking that and I realize, apparently that’s what life is. Life isn’t the smooth ride I want it to be. Instead it’s a serious of bumps interrupting […]

my fashion plate

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

These boots were ordered a while ago but took more than a week to get here just from Arizona. I know there was a holiday but come on, it’s a 7 hour drive, for goodness sake! And notice the pants my child is wearing. Not jeans, but jeggings *sigh*. She backtracked […]


Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

I have failed to reset my youngest child. For weeks now she’s been getting up well before she should. On numerous occasions this has prevented me from getting in a full workout. Not to mention I feel her behavior was being affected by not getting enough sleep. So a couple nights ago while Chris and […]

The dress whisperer

Friday, November 16th, 2012

I mentioned that Tabitha and I went shopping and the first dressed she showed me was not only perfect for me, it was my size and fit beautifully (cannot wait to wear it!). Yesterday we were browsing Target (does anyone ever just browse at Target?) and were looking at the dresses for Daisy. Now, I […]

Brownies and ice cream

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Monday was just a day of lessons, though I did break it up with a Jack in the Box run specifically for dessert before our lunch. The kids enjoyed that and the cashier thought it was funny- probably because I ordered a Diet Coke with our cheesecake, cookies, and churros. It was a long day […]

Half a sleepover

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

Daisy and a friend of hers have been making plans for a sleepover, but neither is old enough to actually have one. I think my friend and I are waiting until the girls turn 8 since that’s about how older our olders kids were when they started sleepovers. Anyway, Daisy and A have talked about […]

Everybody sing!

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

We saw The Wiggles for the very last time, Monday night. We went to our first Wiggles concert when Tabitha was 5 and even had front row seats. We’ve gone almost every year since then. We didn’t last year though as there didn’t seem to be a desire. I had decided earlier this year that […]

April Fools

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

This bug and this note were waiting for me when I came out of the bath. To be honest, the bug did give me a start.

If you don’t read 6-year-old, it says, “Love you, Mommy! And happy late April Fool’s Day. Love, Daisy.”
I especially like the googly eyes she drew in the Os in […]

End of the week

Friday, April 8th, 2011

I had a birthday gift to buy that I had put off and by the time I decided to go it was inconvenient. That would be how we found ourselves at a Lego Store on Thursday morning. We hit the one in Downtown Disney so I had to make it very clear to Daisy we […]

It’s a jungle in here

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

Saturday was Daisy’s Jungle themed birthday party! She has a small guest list so we’re able to do a little more with decorations. We had inflatable monkeys and an inflatable palm tree. All Daisy wanted for this party was an inflatable palm tree- don’t ask me why. Everything looked really cute even if our palm […]

6+1 day

Saturday, February 5th, 2011

The day after Daisy’s 6th birthday marked a bit of a milestone for me. On that day, I had been a mom of 2 kids for longer than I had been a mom of 1 kid. I looked forward to reaching that point. But I thought about it for a couple months leading up to […]

Now We Are Six (couldn’t resist)

Friday, February 4th, 2011

So the baby has turned 6! Amazing! Her day was filled with surprises the first being waking up to 6 pink balloons in her room and another two dozen in the living room. She was thrilled and instantly picked a few to name and play with for awhile. Her next surprise was breakfast in which […]

Day of Daisy

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

Yesterday Tabitha was with her Girl Scout troop all day. As in, we had to leave the house at 7, in the pouring rain, to take her. The went to Pasadena to work on decorating the floats for the Rose Parade. I did it in High School so I guess it’s just a rite of […]

less than words

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

You know, I don’t even know why I’m not blogging. And I’m tired of feeling I need to blog about not blogging. I’ve been behind ever since the fair back in September and I seem to have lost my mojo. I’m guessing because Septemeber is also when our schedule went crazy. Between formal lessons with […]

foggy now- hot later

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

There is a heck of a lot of fog this morning and yet, the high today is 88. Tabitha will be quite disappointed as she is done wearing shorts and just wants to wear pants now. She says she likes them better which I can’t say I knew before this year. Daisy just wants dresses […]

to-do list

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Seriously, how sad is it that I have a to-do list for posts on my blog? *sigh* I don’t want to leave too many holes because I definitely will be needing to rely on this blog when I someday get back to scrapbooking. This isn’t even a real post but I felt like blogging a […]

tag team day

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Once again I’m at dance. Pretty much assume any blog written in the afternoon is done at dance. Loving being able to connect to the internet via my phone; it’s handy when I can’t tap into some free wi-fi. Today is Daisy for an hour and a half, during that time Tabitha does some lessons […]

progress report

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

I was asked about Tabitha’s current grade level by no less than 3 people last week. This leads me to believe others might have the same question so I thought I’d kind of spell it out for anyone wondering.
She turned 11 this past January, so if she were in a brick and mortar school […]

“it’s a small world”

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Small World outfit- Done! Daisy wore it to Disneyland yesterday so I took lots of pics in front of the attraction. She’s wearing a long sleeve shirt underneath since it was cool in the morning and of course I didn’t get a single picture later after it had been taken off, but that’s okay.
I […]

just a tuesday

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

Nothing really interesting to report for today. We had dance classes early this morning and violin this afternoon. In between Tabitha did French, spelling and math and Daisy read to me at violin.
I talked to Daisy a bit about dancing because she mentioned wanting to be in her normal class this summer (as opposed to […]

party time

Monday, April 5th, 2010

I’ve finally got Daisy’s party pictures up as well. Enjoy!

American Girl Place

Monday, April 5th, 2010

I forgot about our trip to Ameircan Girl Place for the girls’ birthdays. I just finished those pictures and they are up on their own page.
American Girl Place
Now, onto party pictures (after I take care of children’s lunch needs).


Thursday, April 1st, 2010

Since I haven’t been up to blogging the last couple of days, I thought I’d quickly dash off something Daisy said on Saturday. The girls dance performance was at a private school (a rather nice looking one at that) and so Daisy says, “When I grow up, if I’m not a normal adult, I think […]

Month 3 (12 Project)

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

March 2010 will forever be known as Cookie Madness. We did nothing but eat, sleep, and breathe cookies. Tabitha and I had a total of 9 booth sales, 7 of which were in March. All family activities were put on hold. In the end, Tabitha sold an amazing 755 cookies.
New this month: Tabitha has […]

avoiding work

Thursday, March 4th, 2010

I owe about 6 emails, need to paint a sign, need to bundle cookies, and need to package cookies for mailing.
Look at me avoid it all!
I’m sitting here shivering and realize that I haven’t really been warm the entire day. I think I’ll grab a blanket to wrap myself in while we watch Survivor.
Talked […]

Monkey See

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

We tried to beat the rain today and headed to a park for our little monkey to do some climbing. I know I said we weren’t going to go extra places for a couple weeks, but Chris and I are trying to give Daisy many opportunities to put her climbing tendancies to good use. We’re […]

The pics are done!

Thursday, February 11th, 2010

Daisy’s 5th Birthday
That wasn’t so bad afterall, only took me about an hour to get all the pictures done. I will be putting up another picture page in a couple days that will include our room at They Disneyland Hotel (recently remodeled and gorgeous!), our day at American Girl Place, and her party that is […]

waiting for Tuesday

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

At this point I’m actually looking forward to when Lost is on so I can get Daisy’s pictures up.
Today marked the 5th, and final, day of celebrating Daisy’s birthday. We ended with a trip to the American Girl Place. It was a girls’ day being that it was myself, Daisy, Tabitha, and my MIL. […]

too many pics to even think of going through right now

Thursday, February 4th, 2010

And a good time was had by all We not only went to Disneyland all day on Wednesday, we stayed overnight at the Disneyland Hotel to celebrate Miss Daisy turning the big 5!! I will get to the pictures, but goodness knows it won’t be tonight. I am exhausted, as is the entire […]

birthday eve

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

We’ve spent the whole day at Disneyland celebrating Daisy’s Birthday Eve. We’re heading back into the park tomorrow for a few more hours for more Birthday Magic!
Details and pictures to come later.

day of rest

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

Two days in a row with no plans is my limit. I spent a good portion of the day wishing we could go out and about. Initially I had thought I would work on Daisy’s robe and party invitations this weekend. But when I was faced with it, I’d rather spend the time with my […]
