Spring Break & Then Some! May 1, 2011

Ok… I know, I know… I have been seriously slacking in the blogging department, but I just haven’t had the time and really haven’t felt like it! But, that is all going to change because I have also been feeling very guilty about not blogging!

I really don’t know how many readers I have, but those that have subscribed and have commented that you read, I want you to know that I appreciate the time you take to spend with me 🙂 and I’ll be giving you more of that!

Well, enough with the “excuses”! It’s time to get down to it!!!

Here is what has been going on with us! {in pics}

As you can see between sewing, life and entertaining my 2 youngest sisters through their spring break I haven’t had the time/energy to blog!

Well that’s it for now & see you soon!!!

Love,

Amanda

Hello Blog world! Sorry I didn’t get to give more detail about my day yesterday, but I have the time and energy to tell you now!

So yesterday was great! Up at 5:30 am to take the hubby to work… Yay 5:30 am! (sarcasm  intended)…

Sleeping Hard!

 

Sweet baby! *muah*

Look at that face! I don't even wanna know what she is thinking...

We had a mom’s breakfast meetup to go to and I really wanted to meet more mommies! So we went, and let me say that Cracker Barrel isn’t exactly vegetarian friendly… but oh well, I had 2 eggs and 1/2 of a biscuit. Ana hardly ate (as the trend continues) 😦 Breakfast was fun, it was nice to have grown up conversation with other moms!

Afterwards we went to our my favorite place The Mall!!! I did have a very specific reason for going… Ana had been asking me for a week for a “feener” (ring) and I had saw a very cute one that I wanted to get her. Of course I couldn’t stick to the plan and ended up buying her the ring that also came with a necklace, and a bracelet… rotten child! 

Ana's Bling Ring!

Ana's new bracelet... She HAD to have this!

 

Wearing her "nessace"

 

Adorable!

I also bought myself a new scarf!!! One I have been looking for since the beginning of fall!

Wow I look tired! Oh well, you get the picture… Leopard!!! …and it’s an eternity scarf!

 

After I decided I didn’t need to spend any more $$$ I let Ana play in the kid area. 🙂 (This is where the Rocket Ships and etc. come from, fyi). 😉 She loved playing, but as usual she took a while to warm up to all of the other kids. When she did, it was not what I expected!… She was BOSSY!!! Not to all of the kids, just the ones trying to slide down the slide while she tried to climb up it, and to the boys! She would say “NO! I wuna swide”, or “Sop it!”. She has no clue how to share yet and it is now apparent that we HAVE to work on that!

Rocket Ship...

 

 

 

"Piddy"!

 

 

She loved jumping off of this!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During all of this fun I began chit-chatting with a couple next to me… A very odd couple. Muscle man, good looking guy, and a very… earthy/hippie woman. As we talked (the mom and I) I found out our daughters were only 2 days apart! Cool right… Well the dad thought so, and when he verbalized this I almost laughed… He sounded like Mickey Mouse! (Steroids?) …I had a hard time not staring before the conversation because they just didn’t match, but now… I don’t even know how I managed to notice my daughter running out of the play area toward the $4 a pop train ride in the mall. (Hokey I think, but whatev).

 

After all of this playtime she became extra sassy and I had to put her in timeout… When I told her what was happening and why, she said “Otay” and laid on the bench… Whhaaaat!? I almost lost it, she normally throws a FIT! Later after playing more she walked up to me and said “Mommy Ina time out”… Did she just ask for time out?… Yep!… So I let her have another… Why not?! {haha} I decided this was her way of telling me she was done, so we left, and she was fine!

Today

…was almost as fun. We stayed home, but since the weather was SO nice (72*) we spent most of the afternoon outside! Somehow I managed to get a farmers tan only on my right arm… weird? I also raked my front yard, which I will never call small again! There had to be 2 years worth of leaves out there…. This did help me out with my water consumption! 2 Liters in today!

Well you guys have a great day (or night)!

Until Next Time, Toodles 😉
