The Singing Bee Premiere - Part 1

This is my new favorite show and it's on tonight! YAY!

Wow,I'm a hottie! LOL

So I went to the MyHeritage website to see what celebrities I look like. I used a pic with me and Brayden in it so they did his as well. Here are some of the celebs that are lucky enough to look like me... ;-)


Now here are Brayden's..Isn't the resemblance between him and B.B. King amazing?? LOL


Busy week!

Today I need to clean up,get some groceries and make a list of what I want to take to Hawaii. Tomorrow is my girl's night and we are making jewelry so I will be able to get my sister's bracelets done. I'm also going to make a necklace to match my new shirt. Thursday is Brayden's 15 month appointment. Friday is date night with my BIL and SIL. Saturday we have to get ready for our trip and then go to my birthday party at 5:30. I also need to get my van cleaned out and gassed up since we are leaving it with my sister so she can drive the kids around. I better get off the computer and get moving!

Happy Birthday mom!

Today is my mom's 66th birthday. My mom is a two time breast cancer survivor so some days it seems like a miracle that she is still here. My mom is my hero and friend,not to mention a wonderful grandma to my kids. I love her so much and I hope she will be here for many more years!

Hawaii,here we come!! I had to keep the trip a secret from hubby for over a month because we wanted it to be a surprise. I'm so glad the cat is out fo the bag now,I almost told him so many times! We are going to Oahu for a week and I can't wait!! My BIL and SIL are paying for our trip so we only have to pay for food and souvenirs. It will be hard to be away from the kids for a week,but we both need the break and the time together. My 30th birthday is next month and I couldn't ask for a more exciting present! :-)

Where is the Orkin man?

I have killed 2 more spiders this past week! One was under my pillows (again) and the other was crawling on the couch next to me last night. EEEEEK! My IL's had someone come and spray less than a month ago so they are going to call them again. It's so weird because last year we had no spiders. The only ones I saw were dead ones. Maybe these are some kind of mutant spiders that can only be killed by getting squished,I don't know. There was also a huge potato bug on my floor today too,not to mention countless tiny beetles. Maybe the bugs and spiders have joined forces to take over my apartment in retalitation for the killing of their families last year.

My week just keeps getting better...

So the kids and I have a stomach bug that is going around. Josh has thrown up twice today,and the rest of us have had diarreah. Brayden has gone through about 10 diapers today and his bum is SO sore. It makes me feel so awful when I have to change him. :-( I keep giving them fluids so they don't get dehydrated,especially Brady. I just hope we are all feeling better soon. Tomorrow has got to be better,right?

So Brayden is sitting on my lap and I am playing on the computer. I feel something wet so I look down and Brayden has thrown up on me. Not just any throw up,but cookie dough pop tart throw up. Lovely. I hope this is not a sign of how my day is going to be.

Does anyone know how to put in a playlist at the bottom of my blog? I have one made but I can't figure out how to do it. TIA!

Where is the Calgon?

I need a whole freaking bottle of it! This has been one of those days. I went to my SIL's and the kids fought about 80 percent of the time. Brianna and Brady fell asleep on the way home and they woke up when I got them out of the van. We got in the house and Brianna started throwing a fit so I put her in on her bed. Then Josh started freaking out so I put him on his bed. After I shut the door,Bri started screaming and Josh yelled,"stupid mom,I hate you! you're stupid!" over and over. I retreated to my room and took a breather but it didn't help much. Maybe I should try screaming in a pillow.

So I was making my bed this morning and Josh decided to help by handing me all of the pillows. So he hands me the king size one and he is squeezing it with both arms to hold it. I take it and put it on the bed and then I notice a ginormous spider on it. YUCKY! I'm glad Josh didn't grab the pillow by the other end,the spider could have crawled on him or fallen off only to disappear around my bed. *shudders* I have no idea how Josh grabbed the pillow and didn't disturb the spider. It was a close call. So I carried the pillow into the bathroom and knocked the spider into the toilet. My kids were laughing at it "swimming" because it's legs were going everywhere. I don't know what kind of spider it was but I have never seen one like that. I'm a very sensitive person about killing things except when it comes to spiders!! EWWWW! LOL

I've been introduced to the world of jewelry making. My SIL hosted a girl's night a few months ago and showed us how to make earrings,bracelets and necklaces. I had a lot of fun doing it so I decided to make bracelets for my mom,sisters and SIL's birthdays. I made the first one for my SIL last night since her birthday is next week. I think it turned out really pretty.

...robots in disguise!

Adam and I saw that movie on Wednesday. He has been waiting for it ever since he saw the previews last year. At the risk of sounding like a teenage boy,it was awesome! LOL The fight scenes were great and it had a lot of humor in it. Overall it was just a fun and exciting summer movie! :-)

It's too hot!!

I know it's July and it's "supposed" to be hot but it's still so uncomfortable. I get really bad headaches in the heat and I have had about 3 in the last week. I'm very grateful that our apartment is so cool..we are freezing at night when we get into bed!

I drive by some of the older apartment buildings and I see their small air conditioners in the window and I feel for them. I remember living in apartments without any air conditioning and it's so miserable! It was hard to clean because I would get so hot and then I couldn't cool down. We used to open the windows at night so when the sprinklers came on,it would cool our house down a bit. At times like this,I think air conditioning should be mandatory in all apartments. I just hope we never have to go back to that!
