Project 366 - Week 20

>> Monday, May 28, 2012

It was bound to happen. I have had so much on my mind lately and a day slipped by with no pic. So
140/366 - nothing. So bummed with myself :(

Getting serious! @natssentiments I ordered it b/c you have been raving for a long time.

Sometimes it is a little thing that changes your world like my new Enell sports bra for instance. Love!

Decided to play with some makeup.
I don't normally allow this but I was having a "Yes" moment.

I have been to better DMB shows but the group I was with was super fun and it was nice to get to a girls night concert again. Since having babes I don't see shows like I used to and I realize each time I see one how much I miss them. BNL in July? Possibly!

I haven't seen anything this funny in a long time. What a fun little pup!

The first thing to come out of our garden! Yay! It's going to be a good summer.

I wish I had better pics from Violet's preschool graduation but Ruby makes it next to impossible to do much but tell her "No, just sit there" and "Please stop getting up" or "We have to be quiet right now". I will miss it. I will miss it. I will miss it.

Breakfast with my girl. We won't do this again until the fall but I can't wait for summer so I can do it will all 3 girls! Except probably not Panera because it will cost like $20 for all of them to get filled up :)

Green flag!

Race day

What a fun day at the track. Except we weren't really at the track. We were indoors and not outside baking in our 90+ degree NC day. It was nice :)

How was your Mother's Day? To be honest, mine was less than fabulous. The kids woke up fighting and a 2 hour car ride to the zoo was the last thing that I wanted to do. But I promised. They love the zoo so that was fun to watch them with the animals but unfortunately my experience at Pauley's Front Porch (from Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives) was not what I expected. They were the reason we went to Columbia and the service stunk, the bathroom was broken, and my hamburger was mediocre. We did see a wild drug bust on our way out of town though. Drug dogs, cops ready to shoot with pistols and shotguns. Crazy that we were allowed to just drive by. Unreal in the movies sort of scene. Girls are still talking about it.

This is what I wanted...

and this is what I got. No fun!

Our hydrangea is about 6 feet tall full of gorgeous blue blossoms. I will take full advantage this year and fill vases in every room but what about next year. Cut back or allow to grow another 3 feet? Decisions decisions :)

Hubs brought this home from work for me to try. I was afraid to try it. Back when I worked at the mill I would take these over the counter pills to stay awake and they would make me feel really funny and I worried that this was the same thing. Monster is not the same as the pills I used to take but I am a coffee snob and this didn't do it for me. Let me be clear, this did nothing bad to me I just didn't care for their coffee taste. Coffee snob. Beer snob. What has become of me in my 40's?

This was sent to my husband to try and get him home before dark lol :) You can tell my desperation some days to get a photo a day. I forget and scramble looking at my phone to see if maybe I took one. Too bad the chicken isn't skin side up because it turned out extra good this night. Lucky you to see what we ate for supper on May 17, 2012 lol :)

Jessie, did you forget to take a picture again? Why yes, I did. I bought another book. For years I checked them out of the library but I wanted to read this and realized that the digital download from the library I am on the wait list for isn't for my Kindle - ugh! I sucked it up and paid for it. There are only 2 books out of 3 right now in this trilogy. It will drive me nuts when I finish the 2nd and am left hanging. Just started it but so far so good! You see the book in the background, yes I read it. Thankfully I didn't buy that one because I was not very impressed with the writing. I probably won't read the others either but I had to see what the hype was all about. *shrugging*

A walk. Yes I am crazy!

"Look over here Ruby" Yup, that's what I get most days :) I decided to go for a walk with the girls yesterday. What on earth was I thinking? What's really crazy is that I will probably do it again today. 35 pound stroller, 125 pounds of kids, and an 80 pound dog. Someone asked yesterday if I had triplets. Really?

Monday Mingle 5.14.12

>> Thursday, May 17, 2012

Yes, I do know it is Thursday :)

1. Do you have a birthmark?
2. What was your favorite game to play at recess?
3. What restaurant do you wish would come to your city/town?



In my rush to complete this before the bus came I forgot to mention that I actually fell from those bars and had a HUGE goose egg on my forehead. I was either in 2nd or 3rd grade when that happened because my sister was still at the school with me. Most likely I had a concussion and they sent me home. I haven't thought of that for years.

Cooked out yummy hamburgers, brats, and dogs on Sunday with friends. The girls swam in the still quite cold lake :) Oh to be young again.

I almost thought about buying this. Almost. Hubs asked me if I was going to agree to go snowboarding if I did. Nope. I moved away from snow and I like my bones unbroken thank you.

Voting day. With such an important amendment on the books I am sad that there was not more of a turnout. Unfortunate NC, unfortunate.

Voting outfit <3

The whole outfit. Found those Hanna clogs at Goodwill and baby girl hasn't taken them off since. They are only 2 sizes too big but you wouldn't know it if you saw her running in them. They are adorable!

My girls have wished and wished and wished for one of these ever since we bought that swing set. They aren't cheap though. Unless you find one at Goodwill! Score - $4.99! They played on it for hours Saturday!

I don't NEED bread. I don't NEED bread. I don't NEED bread. To be honest my double jalapeno guacamole was delicious with the hamburger I grilled for lunch on Thursday. Check out our little clown in the background. I smile a lot during the day. I yell a lot too but I smile more ♥

Mother's Day Tea at Piper's school. My shy girl had the hardest time getting up there and speaking in front of a room full of kids/moms. She did so great. So proud of her! It cracks me up that she used my full name since no one ever calls me that - except doctors I guess.

From Merlefest. It was such a great bluegrass festival! Seriously if we can swing it I want to bring the fam every year!

It is H.O.T. here this week. Not bad outside if you can take it but indoors at the end of the day it is around 84. Each year we have to do a little fixing on our irrigation and Monday was Matt's day to fix it. The girls always take advantage and run through the "sprinklers" when we put it on in the evenings. We finally turned the air on as well. It will probably go off again though because the high is only 80 next week :)

Piper's peas aren't doing too bad. We aren't having a meal or anything with them and I think that the aphids have finally won the battle I was waging with them. For her it was awesome to see the seeds she planted actually produce.

Most of the zoo loves these spicy black bean burgers. I had to make 3 of them on Wednesday for our lunch. My girlfriend, I believe, has since made black bean burgers from scratch! I might do that some night when the whole family is home if it isn't too difficult but I do love Morningstar in my freezer for a quick lunch ♥

Stop the presses Violet lost a tooth Thursday night! Wasn't she just getting them in?


Mother's Day Tea. Love my @mohopshoes!

It was also the preschool's Mother's Day Tea. I got to wear my MoHop Shoes that I won last year. These shoes are adorable AND so very comfortable. I am going to find ways to wear them often this summer.

Crazy. Beautiful. Entertaining. Friday nights at our house are so much fun!

Afternoon with the arts

Super fun day! Went to a play downtown. The Elves and The Shoemaker. It was a bunch of teens that put it on and it was so great! My girls sat still through the whole thing! Totally looking into one hour(ish) long plays in the future!

The art patrons
and the girls afterwards. One word. Hungry.
