Bad Blogger

That's me...a bad blogger...I wonder is there still anyone out there?

I have been busy and basically after work come home eat dinner, chill with the girls and MBM, get my pj's on and crawl into bed with a book. I am not complaining...I am LOVING work and my new life style(not a slave to my sewing machine) but, my computer is in my, I have been neglecting blogging.

MBM and the girls left for the shore on Friday morning and I have been home alone for the past few days....WOO HOO...I have to work Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday then I am headed to the shore for a LOOOOONG weekend.

Since they have been gone I have been...working...painting our master out...watching chick flicks...and tonight I will be sewing!

Hope you all are having a great summer so far. I'll leave you with a picture of the shoes I scored at the Lilly sale...I paid $30...check them out here!!!!!

Emma's Play

Last week, Emma's class along with another class had a play. It was called the "PEACE PLAY". If you have been reading for a while, like a year or so, you might remember this from last year.
Emma's play was a different play and she had one line, as did all the other children. But, that didn't matter to Emma. All that mattered to her was that Caroline had more is ALWAYS a competition....UGH!!! Thank goodness, Emma's teacher was Caroline's teacher last year she stressed that Emma's line, the last line of the play, was the most important line of the play! And I could agree more!
We arrive early to get goo seats and because I was in charge of refreshments. Front row seats...the same as last year, trying to keep all things even. Here are the pictures I took from me seat!

Love front row seats...Do you see Emma? She is the one behind the podium. I could get EVERY OTHER KIDS face in on the stage, EXCEPT Emma! She was in that spot for the whole play! The whole play!!!! Except for the VERY LAST LINE!!!!


At the end of the play the teachers kept the kids on stage for a photo op...

Emma totally bored!

And I just had to include this...his mother must be thrilled! There were about a hundred cameras snapping away!

The big girls and I just returned from the shore, it is about 9:15...I should be making chocolate covered pretzel rods for Caroline's class. But, there is a two pound bag of chocolate somewhere in this house that doesn't want to be found. So, I threw in a double batch of brownies and while they are baking I thought I would check in. Twenty more minutes until they are done...I really want to go to bed. Not feeling great. I've got some soar throat thing going on. Oh, and I have NO voice. That should be interesting at work tomorrow. I think I'll hem some of my Lily loot to wear to work tomorrow!!!!

Today, is the day I will go to the BIG SALE! I am meeting my cousin who came up from Virgina Beach for the event, she was a rookie last year, now she is hooked and excited! I went to bed early last night, so I am well rested and can think clearly! I have been drinking a lot of water to stay hydrated, endurance is important! I have my course through the sale planned, according to last years layout! My game day outfit all ready... a skirt, makes it easy to slip pants, short, and skirts on and off with ease! A tank, easy on and off and sometimes it is necessary to pop something on over the tank if the fitting room line is too long! Flip flops and most important the best undies and bra I own for the dressing room! And of course, I refer back to last year's plan for anything I may have overlooked. I have been going to this sale since before my children were born, I think this could be my 10th Anniversary, don't mean to brag but, I am somewhat of a pro by now! I'll be sure to share what came home with me! Work has been great! LOVE the people I work with...a real mix of people one that has been with the company for 33 years! I have been doing mainly training stuff, like watching training videos, etc... I did help a client with new chair cushions and pillows for a guest suite in her vacation home...that was fun! Meg you are so sweet to ask! I work again tomorrow and Saturday and hopefully will be sporting some new LILLY to work!!!!

The week ahead!

Originally, we had plans to head to the shore this weekend. Could be my only full weekend at the shore since I start working on Monday. But, we have so much going on and promised sleepovers for the girls. So, we decided to stay put. And I am glad. We have a BIG week coming up...

...lots going on! Work, plays, working out, meetings for next years music program, MBM is away one day, lots...oh, wait what is that on Thursday? Between "running/bodypump" and "Emma's play"...


Have a great weekend!

Count Down...

I am counting down the days until school is over! I am much more excited then the girls...these last few weeks just
With all of the end of the year stuff, we have been very busy. Just about everyday there is some sort of event...portfolio picnics, plays, parties, graduations, etc...

What we have done so far this week:

We went to PF Changs for MBM's birthday and Lulu has decided to eat all her meals using chopsticks. PB&J diced...yummy!

MBM finally turned 34...

Lulu graduated from preschool...7 consecutive years at this school. I won't know what to do with myself next September when I don't have to drive anyone to school!

Between all the end of the year stuff I have squeaked out a few projects that have been lingering in the garage for the last few months! I am happy how these turned parents old counter stools where headed to the trash but, I managed to salvage a few for our kitchen. Now we have 3 matching stools!

AFTER...sanding, two coats of paint, glaze, poly, new upholstered seats with laminated fabric!

I am headed to my new place of employment this afternoon to drop off some paper work...I start on MONDAY!!!!!!! Tonight, I am going to organize and plan out my clothes/shoes/bag/etc...
