Fun Bits for the week of January 11th…

Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve posted fun bits.  I don’t think I’ve posted any since before Christmas 😦  Here are a few from the last week…

* Leah has decided to start dressing like a rock star.  Not really a rock star but a Disney star.  She has been wearing skirts, footless tights, boots and her sparkly pink and silver scarf for the last several days.  She even wore it outside to make a snowman with Dad.

* Brooke scolded me the other day.  I was eating some crackers on the couch and she busted me!

* I’ve been proud of the girls lately – they’ve really been playing great together.  Most of the time they play house and Brooke is the Mom.  I keep listening to see what “Mom” has to say.  I’m hoping it’s all good and she doesn’t start yelling like someone else I know. 😉

* Speaking of playing house…you just never know what you’re going to see around here.  Is this a bug or a princess or a geisha girl?

* Everytime Kami goes to put chapstick on, she says she needs “lips chapped”. 

* I enjoyed my birthday.  Thank you everyone for all the great birthday wishes!  We all went out to dinner at the Japanese steak house.  Leah loved it.  Brooke and Kami were not so sure.  I had to switch seats with Kami because she was afraid of the fire.  Brooke started crying when she saw the grill “fired” up.  I enjoyed my yummy dinner and love watching the girls try chop-sticks for the first time. 

Have a great week.  I’ll have some project sneak peeks tomorrow!

If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to organize or purge, check out my friend Terry’s blog here.  She has a schedule in place to organize your house in 31 days.  She started organizing her home on January 1st and gives you pics and ideas to follow.  Good stuff!

Have a great day!


Look what I found on my camera… January 13, 2010

Yep, my best side.

You thought my kids took that shot – didn’t you.  Nope.  Hubby did.

I was working on the new trim for my CHA booth.  I asked him to take some pics.  I told him to get my good side.

Speaking of CHA booth.

Check out my new sign!

Gotta give a huge shout-out to Bridgette…she painted the sign.  It looks great! 

Getting anxious for the show.  Will have more pics soon!


Happy Birthday Hubby! January 12, 2010

We enjoyed ice cream cake (seems to be a tradition now) last night.  Hubby is traveling today. 

Speaking of birthdays…within this week our families have several to celebrate!  Happy Birthdy to Sher, Elaina, Lucas, Leann, Aunt Rae and me! 

Have a great week!

Yep, that’s right.

Was that last post on Christmas? 


I have my log-in in my “favorites” to the left of my inbox. 

I keep avoiding the section with “Soup Bowl – Create New Post”.

If I don’t look over there, it might go away. 🙂

As all of you know it’s crrrazy busy right now with CHA stuff.

Have you seen all the sneak peeks over at the Bean Talk blog?  Good stuff.

Promises to be a better blogger after the show.  I even started another blog since this one is driving me crazy (blurry photos and all).

Can you see that chunk of blue missing from the top right box?  I can. Ugh.

Have a good one.

Be back soon!
