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 […]

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 […]

My babies

Tabitha (13) and Daisy (7). The lights of my life. Photo taken on Thanksgiving.

Husband- Do Not Read

Sunday, November 25th, 2012

Seriously, Chris, I’ll know if you read it. You have to wait until December 2 then you can come back and read. My Mother-in-Law probably shouldn’t read this at all. Frankly, if you’re one of my aunts, I don’t really want you reading this either. Check back in a couple days for a new post. […]

There are so many things I’m thankful for in life. It’s a daunting task to list them all and not something I plan to attempt. I did not participate in the facebook trend to list a thankful thought per day for a few reasons. One reason was I didn’t like the backhanded thankful posts that […]

Won’t you be my friend?

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

Once upon a time I met a guy who I was quite smitten with. Though he was a friend of a friend and I did get an introduction, I didn’t really know him. All I knew was he had great hair and I very much wanted to go out with him. I finagled another meeting […]

Easy weekend

Sunday, November 18th, 2012

Friday I woke to rain so I decided we’d stay home from park. That may have been a mistake as I found out a friend brought a newborn lamb and I know as soon as my kids find out they will be livid. Plus we won’t be going this week or next so we really […]

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 […]

ego trip

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Let me tell you, I am getting compliments left and right lately. I’ve had more than one person ask if I’ve lost weight, which, I have. I’m down about 15lbs since April. It’s slow going, but they say the slow route makes it easier to keep it off so hopefully “they” know what they […]

the return to t party

Saturday, November 10th, 2012

Wednesday Tabitha had American Girl in the morning and then we picked up Daisy’s Brownie buddy for a meeting here. Then it was straight to dance from there so Wed. pretty much flew by.
Thursday was violin which I’ve mentioned is in Hollywood. Not a fan of driving there still (I just don’t like surface […]

voting and guyliner

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

The week started off poorly with no internet Monday morning. In general Verizon is completely useless when we call and the internet eventually returns as mysteriously as it left. So I dealt with it all day and we used the hotpsot on our phones for some stuff on the netbook, but not too much so […]

foiled by the time change

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

This morning was supposed to work perfectly. I got up at my normal time and was just about to start my workout (feeling refreshed with extra sleep thanks to DST ending) and out came Daisy- naked. She thought it hysterical that she woke up naked and has no explanation. She should be asleep, but she’s […]

Halloween 2012

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

This year we did something different and went to Disneyland’s Trick or Treat party on Halloween. It wasn’t intentional, I had just put off buying our party tickets too long and then when I finally went to make our purchase, Halloween night was our only choice.
I was a bit worried about feeling like we were […]
