Damn cat!

Good Morning Dolls! 

I hope your morning is off to a better start than mine! My oldest daughter woke me up to tell me that one of the six pots with marigolds seeds in it had broken.

Don't we all..??

Found this. Had to share.

I need a nap!

What a busy morning I have had. I am so very exhausted! I accomplished what I needed to in the flower garden though! I managed to dig a trench like thingy around the front of the garden and along one side. It was hard work and hot as hell but I got it done!


Really quick I just wanted to inform you all that 3 out of the 6 Marigolds we planted have sprouted! I know what you're thinking because I said to it too! And yes, yes, it did happen quickly. But we're certainly not complaining about it!

Thank you sweet baby Jesus!

So I don't usually talk about this, but since I have finally found something that works great for me, I feel compelled to tell everyone about it. So, here it goes.

Ever since I can remember my face has been oily. It sucks, I know. I have always had trouble finding a really good face wash and a moisturizer because they would either leave my skin too dry, or too oily, or the moisturizer would leave my skin feeling icky and heavy. But all of that has finally changed!!

Hi, my name is... and I'm an addict.

My nine year old daughter had me download a game on my phone called Words With Friends. Pretty decent game. It's basically Scrabble.

Put Your Pink Bra On

It's official! It's that time of year again! I just completed registering for our next American Cancer Society event. Put Your Pink Bra On. I love this event! Aside from the fact that we are all there to support a great cause and raise money, we always have such a great time! Here's a pic of me and my mom at last years event in Polk City. I forgot about making myself a bra last year, but this year I won't!

Sexy Nursery Rhyme

This is my friend Bob. She's fucking hilarious! You must watch this video, just make sure there are NO KIDS AROUND when you do because she's a dirty, dirty girl!! But I'm pretty sure this is the greatest nursery rhyme of all time. Just sayin'.


Follow her on the Twitter here and she will love you FOREVER! I promise.
She'll love you even more if you follow me.

Thanks a whole bunch! I hope you enjoyed it!

Worst Gardener EVER!

I am so completely frustrated this morning it's ridiculous! 
It all kind of started yesterday morning when I went out front to look at the garden and check things out because we have had so much damn rain these past few days. First thing I see are these blue flowers coming out of my big pot, which is a good thing, but I thought that was my dang rose and not the Forget-Me-Nots. Shows what I know!

Pretty. Right?

Now if I could just figure out what that pink "flower" is. Probably a weed. 

So, after noticing the Forget-Me-Nots I saw tons (and I mean tons) of damn ants. Everywhere. On everything. Even in the garden and all over my sunflowers. So instantly I grab my phone and called up my Mom. (I don't know why I call her, she has a blacker thumb than I do! Seriously, she has killed many a cactus in her time.) Anyway, she tells me that they are probably looking for dry land and that I should call up to Home Depot (where she works) and ask someone in garden. Because I told her that I had a can of this disease and pest killing stuff that is specifically for outdoor use on plants. I just wasn't sure if it would do the job. So I get off the phone with her and on the phone with someone in the gardening department who proceeds to tell me that I can use the can of stuff I have on hand and that it will not  harm my plants. Not even my sunflowers (which I specifically asked about.) So I hung up the phone, after thanking him for being so helpful, and I get to spraying. All done. All good. Ants are dead. Instantly. 

So, this morning, I go out front to check my plants and I have BLACK spots/blotches on the leaves of every single freakin' plant in the flower garden! Do you see my frustration? If my damn flowers die because that idiot told me it was OK to spray that shit on them I am going to be pissed. Seriously pissed. First thing I did (of course) was call my mother and rage to her about that idiot. 

 Sorry, it's sideways, but you can see the black on this one.

This one too.

I have worked so dang hard on those sunflowers. I don't care if those ninety-nine cent flowers from the depot die, they can easily be replaced. But those sunflowers, man, it just really sucks. I'm so upset about it. I should have just left those ants alone. Stupid ants. It's totally their fault. They started war when they touched my flowers. Bastards. 

I really hope my flowers don't die. The kids will be upset. I will be upset. And the worst part about it will be the fact that I will have to start all over. Again.

I have the best mom ever! She went to a Scentsy party a few weeks back and she bought me this awesome electric zebra print aroma warmer! How cool is that?!

She got me a honey dew scent for it. It smells amazing. No, seriously. It does. Scentsy is new to me and her as well. I have always been more of Partylite girl, but it's just gotten too expensive lately and besides, the kids break most of shit anyway. 
But this warmer truly is awesome. I had it on for maybe 3 hours yesterday and it had the whole house smelling so great! The best part of that is the fact that the warmer is sitting on a dresser in my bedroom. Not the living room. But we could still smell it, faintly, but it was there. 
My mother is going to start selling Scentsy products. She's excited about it, as am I because I can't wait to stock up on some more scents! And maybe another warmer or two! (If we're being honest!)

If you don't know what Scentsy is, or just want to check their site out, I will let you do that right now, just click right HERE. You're welcome.

Stop fighting it!!

Never in my life have I met a child who refuses to take medicine as much as my middle daughter does. She is unbelievable. I had to take her to the emergency room last night because her throat had a bunch of tiny red dots on it. I had never seen anything like that and so I freaked out a bit. Turns out she has strep throat and was running a fever. 

This morning, as I am attempting to give her the medicine, she not only fights me to take it in the first place but she ended up spitting it all over herself. TWICE! I had to dunk her in the tub and wash it off her because it was sticky and everywhere! Oh, the frustration!! Thank goodness she only has to be on the antibiotics for a couple days. But now she's refusing to swallow, so she's drooling all over herself and she's refusing to open her mouth to talk or anything. I don't get it at all. It's a never-ending battle with her this morning. Hopefully, she won't fight me so much tomorrow. It's only once a day medicine so I'm not going to try again today. But in the morning, the fight will resume. 

Does your son or daughter fight you to take their medicine when they are sick? Any tips or tricks you would care to share? I know I can mix some medicines in her drink, but she always seems to taste it and then refuses the drink. It's almost as if she would prefer to just stay sick and miserable. Suck it up girl! 

Thanks for reading and ALL comments and tips/tricks are welcome!

It's gonna get mushy!

I'm so proud of my girls this week! Paige got a lot of recognition at her awards ceremony including Honor Roll and Brooke did great in her little musical performance! She is so shy though! It's so very cute to watch. She was singing along with the music but she wasn't doing any of the dance moves. I'm still a very proud mama though! It's hard for me to believe that Paige is advancing into the fourth grade and Brooke will be starting kindergarten! It's crazy! And to top it all off, Myles just turned 3 years old yesterday!

Paige with her certificate.

Brooke after the show.

Cupcakes and ice cream for the birthday boy!

 Paiges certificate

Two of the shirts we bought Myles.

Ok, that's enough of the pictures.

I just wanted to show off my kids and tell you all how amazingly awesome they are! I'm so proud of all of them. I teared up a bit at Brookes' school today, it's sad to think of how fast they grow up!           The teachers pointed out today that Brookes' class is the "Graduating Class of 2025" and I had never felt older in my life. It's depressing. 

I love all my babies so much.

Alright. That's it. Thanks for reading!

Peace Out!

Kill me now

It's the last week of school! Can I get a hip-hip-hooray?!?! 
This week seriously wears me out just by looking at the calendar.  Here's what we have going on.
Monday (Today)- Last Girl Scout meeting
Tuesday- Myles 3rd Birthday! Award ceremony for Paige at school.
Wednesday- Brookes' End of the Year Celebration party at her school.
Thursday- Last day of school! Girl Scout end of the year party.
Friday- Nothing (Day to REST! And prepare for the party.)
Saturday- Little Mans birthday party!
Sunday- Girl Scout field trip to the ZOOOOOOOO!!! (Hell yeah! So excited! I freaking LOVE the zoo!)

Are you as tired as I am just thinking about it all? Good grief.

And now for a subject change.

My sunflowers. The ones I planted a few weeks back. Well, I'm starting to give up. I think my black thumb has reared its' ugly head again or something because nothing is happening (at all) with those damn seeds. I had two sprouts, now only one. Don't ask me what happened to the other one because I have no idea. It just disappeared. And the one I do have is growing, or has been growing just fine. But something has once again eaten the little bitty petals on it. It's starting to make me mad. Guess maybe I should bring it in at night or something. I don't know what's going on (or not going on) with the other seeds I planted. Why wouldn't they have sprouted by now? Can the seeds be bad? Is that even an option? I can't figure it out. But I'm about ready to give up and plant something else. I have a few packs of seeds, can't remember what they are though and I don't feel like getting up to find them right now either. So. Whatever. Don't judge me. I'm allowed to be lazy from time to time.

Anyway. Thanks for reading.

You two-faced son of a Jackel

I have been such a slacker lately with this blog. Sorry. I've had a lot going on lately. Today hasn't been any different either. But I do have something that I would like to discuss with you all. 

I'm pretty sure that most of you will agree with me on this, but if you don't please feel free to tell me so. See, the thing is, I have a friend (whom shall remain nameless) but this friend of mine is two-faced. It drives me insane. If you are going to talk shit about someone, then don't do it behind their back and then act like you're their friend to their face. That's bullshit. I hate it and I can't stand people that are like that. There's no reason for it. If you have a problem with someone, or an issue with someone, let that person know. Don't go telling everyone else about it if you're not willing to talk to them about it. I'm pretty sure that everyone at some point in their lives has been a little two-faced though. I know I have. But at the same time, I have no problem telling the person how I feel. You can't just be part-time friends with someone. That's ridiculous and absurd. And you shouldn't be friends with someone only when it's convient for you. If that's the type of person you are, then leave me out of it. I'm too damn old for that high school drama. 

Anyway, that's all I wanted to say about that. I feel a bit better now. Thanks.
And sorry again for being a slacker.

A day in the life of a SuperMOM

So I would like to share with everyone that I received a bit of bad news this morning. My aunt Sharlene in Georgia has stage 4 cancer. I have yet to find out what kind of cancer. But I was told that they are wanting her to do kemo and radiation treatments five times a week. Not a good thing. I'm trying to stay strong for her, and I hope she puts up one hell of a fight. We're not ready to lose her.

On a different note, I think my black thumb may be rearing its ugly head again. This morning one of the sunflower sprouts that we have looks to be dying. I hope not. We've gotten so much rain lately. I've been doing a good job though of keeping them from getting too much rain. I keep bringing them inside the house. I hope it will be OK. And I wish the other pots would start sprouting. I'm starting to think they never will. Paiges' flower is still going strong and getting bigger each day. Just wish the other ones would do something. Anything. 

Also, I have to start planning for my sons third birthday party. I have a week and a half to pull this off. It can be done. I think we are going to go with a "Cars" theme, again, and I found a McQueen cake pan at Party City for only $12.99. It's totally doable. 

And, in the back of my head I'm trying to plan a surprise getaway to the beach for mine and the hubs four year anniversary at the end of July. Busy busy. It will be great to get away from Lakeland. I've already talked it over with my Mom and she's willing to babysit so that we can really, really get away. It will be so awesome! I was thinking, if it doesn't cost too much, maybe we could go for a couple days WITH the kids and then have a few days WITHOUT them. Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking about!

One more thing. My page, this page, just hit 2,000 views today. I would like to thank each and every one of you who made that happen!! And a big thanks to my girl SassiBoB, she's the reason I started the blog and she's the main reason I've received so many views! So thanks Bob! Love ya!

Also, don't forget to subscribe, follow, like and all that fun stuff. You can find me on Twitter here.

Thanks love!

Supermom out!


So with all this recent chit chat about zombies, I must say, I don't think I would last long in a zombie apocalypse. I'm small. And weak. I will not lie. I'd be dead in no time flat. Which sucks!! 
I'm sure by now you have all heard about the so-called "zombie" attack out of Miami. But if not, you can read about it here. It's pretty intense. Basically, there were two naked guys, and one of them was eating the other guys face. Literally. Then, a cop came and shot the crazed "zombie" to death. A friend of mine made a very hilarious video about the whole thing. You can watch it here. She did a great job. Turns out though, that the "zombie" wasn't actually a "zombie" he was just on cocaine. Makes me so glad that I never touched that crap!!

Memorial Day

I hope everyone had as much fun as we did on Memorial Day! We all went over to my Moms' new place for her first official family cookout. I'm happy to report it was a success. Even with a tropical depression lingering and promising lots of rain, it was still a good day. It did rain for a little minute, but it was mostly a heavy sprinkle and we were all inside eating at that point so it didn't matter. Mom made her "famous" chicken dip and homemade mac and cheese, Clay (my step-dad) was in charge of the burgers and hot dogs, I brought the beans and Grandma Jackie made the potato salad. Mom also tried her hand a new cake recipe, it was red, white and blue, with a homemade icing. It tasted like a colorful pound cake with amazing icing! She did a great job on the cake! We also managed to squeeze in a few games of Foosball while we were there. I suck. I did start to get a bit better, but my reaction time just wasn't up to par.

It was still fun though. The kids were able to get in on the action. Paige didn't want to stop playing! She loved it. Our friends, Jessica and Mike, were able to join us for the day. Jessica was able to go for a ride on Clays' motorcycle (with him) for the first time. She was so excited and scared at the same time! It was funny! She did good. Later, we all went back to our house and Jessica asked to see some of my scrap booking supplies because she's thinking about getting into the hobby. Well, she asked for it. I pulled out all three of my totes from the closet that are slap full of stuff. Stickers, paper, cut-outs, stamps, stencils, punch out designs, fancy scissors, all sorts of crap, and yes, everything is labeled. She actually told me that she knew I had an "addiction" but she had NO IDEA it was "that bad" and I busted out laughing!! I told her that I'm planning on going through all of it to get rid of some if it because I really do have a tad too much, and I told her that what I don't want I will just give to her to help her out since she wants to start doing it. She gladly accepted the offer.

Me and my Bestie (sorry the pic is a little blurry, I guess my Mom couldn't hold still!)

So all in all, it was a great way to spend our Memorial Day. I hope yours was great, too!

Our Flower Garden

This morning when I stepped out front to water the flowers, I got another little surprise! We had another one of the pots we planted the sunflower seeds in sprout over night! Super exciting!

It feels so great to finally have a green thumb instead of the black one that I had most of my life. I feel like I could grow anything! I know I can't, but it feels good to have some confidence when it comes to the garden. And our other sunflower bloom looks huge this morning, bigger than yesterday!

Look how tall it is!!! It's as big as my son! I love it! I feel like I'm kinda a pro when it comes to these sunflowers! 

I wish I could say the same for what I believe to be my up and coming rose bush. See, it all started a couple months ago. My oldest daughter wanted to plant some Forget-Me-Not flowers that she purchased at the store. That's fine, we planted them. Weeks and weeks went by and nothing. Black thumb and all, so I didn't think too much of it. It was just kind of like whatever, they didn't grow so we will try something else. Which is where the rose bulb came into play. We planted it in the same pot that we planted the Forget-Me-Nots in, because they weren't growing so I didn't think it mattered. Didn't really expect the rose bulb to grow either. But now in that same pot, I have 3 separate plants growing. I don't know what they are. I'm thinking one of them has to be the rose bulb we planted. But because I've been such a failure in the gardening department for most of my life, I have no idea what the rose should or will look like as it grows, or the other flowers for that matter. And I don't really have anyone that I can ask, which is where all of you guys come in to play. I took a picture this morning of that pot.

Why the heck is this picture sideways, and why can't I fix it?

Anyways, as I was saying. The plants on the top, in this case, are what I believe to be the rose bulb, the one on the bottom is what I think is the Forget-Me-Nots. Can any of you confirm or deny this? Do you think it would be wise to get them out of the pot and into the ground? Or do you think any of it is a weed? My mom thinks the "Forget-Me-Nots" is a weed and not a flower. But I don't want to uproot it in case she is wrong. I need some help!!! Please!! What do you think?

And if you know how to rotate that pic, please let me know so that I can fix it for future posts.

Thanks a bunch! 

I hope you all are having a great Memorial Day weekend! And a big thank you to all of those serving our country, and another big thank you to those who have served in the past.

Passion Vine Flower

Good morning Bloggers! 
I wanted to show all of you these beautiful purple flowers that grow on a vine along the fence line in the backyard. It's called the passion vine flower, I think, or at least that is what all the Google searches have led me to believe it is called. Here's the picture.


I love them! We first discovered them last year. Brooke, my middle child, found them actually. She picked one off the vine and brought it in the house to me. I asked her where she got it from and she showed me. I couldn't believe it! There were TONS of them! And they were all just beautiful! I don't know where they came from. We had lived here for just over year and never saw them before. I'm so glad they came back after Winter. Especially since my black thumb had nothing to do with it!

Also, I wanted to let you know that our second sunflower has gotten its' first bloom of the season!

It's so pretty! I'm so proud!

We haven't had any of the other sunflower seeds that I planted sprout, but I know it should be soon. Don't worry your pretty little head either because you know I will be posting photos and tracking the progress for you all to see. 

Alright. That's enough rambling for now.

Have a great day and a safe weekend!

My Idiot Dog

You know how kids know right from wrong but when they choose to do what's "wrong" they will look at you to see if you are watching them first. Kinda smart. They want to make sure they can get away with it. Which usually doesn't happen, but you kinda have to give them an "A" for effort, in a sense anyway. 
Well, I just realized that one of our idiot dogs, Krumb, does the same thing! Our dogs know "right" from "wrong" too, just like the kids. And in the same sort of ways, Krumb will look at me to see if I'm watching before he does something stupid. Like tonight, after dinner, I was slacking and didn't clear the table right away. God forbid (I know!) But my idiot dog decided that it was OK to knock one of the plates off the table to finish eating what the kids had left behind. Bad idea. It's funny though because I didn't lay a single finger on him, and usually I would, but he knew he was wrong, I could see it in his eyes. Then, not even an hour later, I find him laying on my pillow in my bed! Oh hell to the no! I don't mind the dogs in my bed, even with the dirt, sand and hair left behind. I can handle it. But you will not lay your dirty little ass on my pillow!! And the second that I walked into the bedroom and spotted him, I shot him a dirty look and then he got up and off the bed. Didn't have to say a single word. Good dog, right? Well, no. He knows Mama doesn't like him sleeping on my pillow, but like the kids, he wanted to see if he could get away with it. And he did, for a few minutes anyway.

 Our dogs, Bowzer is on the left (he's the smart one) and Krumb is on the right (he's the idiot)

A mothers' limits are always being tested. 

For the love of Pinterest!

Found this. Fell in love. Had to share.

I hope you love it, too!

Hippity, Hoppity, Hop!!!!

I'm so glad that I joined a Blog Hop last night and another one this morning! My page views and my list of followers have both increased! It's so exciting! It's been great meeting new people who share my interests. If you haven't joined a Blog Hop, I highly recommend it! The first one I joined was TGIF Blog Hop and this morning I joined Aloha Friday Blog Hop both have worked great for me! I did have to sign up on multiple sites, but so far it's been worth it, even though I sort of feel like a blog whore. Since I'm still new to this whole "blogging" gig, I can use all the help I can get. So when I saw the posts about the Blog Hop, I thought it might be helpful and beneficial to me at the same time. I was right! 

So with that said, go join the Blog Hops, one or the other, or both. Just do it. I promise you won't regret it! Also, if you make the WISE choice to follow my blog page, I will follow you back, just leave me a comment so I know to do just that.

I hope you are all having a great day! I'm off to see if I can find any more Blog Hops to join!


Ok, so I've been watching SYTYCD (So You Think You Can Dance) since season one and the show started its' nineth season last night. This show is amazing! I am not a dancer at all. I mean, I love to dance, but I am no where near as talented as the contestants on the show! But last night, one of the guys auditioning for the show was by far one of the best I've ever seen! He was absolutly breathtaking! I can't wait to see what else he can do because I'm sure this guy is going to go all the way!! Here's a link to check out his audition, I promise you will not be disappointed. http://youtu.be/gOheCGjXoLg

Proud Mama Moment

So my eldest daughter took the FCAT (Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test) for the first time a few weeks back. She was so nervous about the test because the school administration puts so much pressure on these kids to do well so the school can have an "A" grade. She was scared to death that she was going to fail the FCAT test and be held back in third grade next year. Thankfully, I was right and she had nothing to worry about! She passed!! She got a 3 on the Reading part of the test and a 4 on the Math part. Any score above a 1 passes and 5 is the highest you can get. So she did well. We are very proud of her! We're going to have to do something this weekend to celebrate! My baby girl is so smart, she's going to be President one day, so watch out! Mama loves you hunny!

Must be doing something right!

I'm so happy to inform you that one of the seven pots I planted sunflower seeds in has sprouted!

First signs of life!

I'm so excited! I can't wait for the others to sprout! I really thought it was going to be like another week or so before we could see any action, but I am glad that we don't have to wait much longer!
As, I have said before, Take that Black thumb!!

My Life

True story.

Who Knew?

I'm so proud of my new found green thumb! I love being out in the garden, regardless of the heat. The flowers are doing great! One of the sunflowers in about it have its first bloom, which makes us all very excited! This morning I was out there cleaning it up some and putting some more garden soil down when I noticed that some of the other flowers will be blooming soon too! The sunflower seeds haven't sprouted yet, should be another week I think. I should have marked the calendar when I planted them, but I didn't. I would really like to dress up the garden some more though. Add in a few decorations or something. I have three butterflies stakes and a fence around it. It needs more. 
It's funny how something that didn't interest you at all in your younger days peaks your interest now that you're pushing thirty. I've never been one to spend time in a garden, much less get something to actually grow.  I'm the mom who actually enjoys being in the kitchen. But I really enjoy being outside in the garden. I'm sure most of that has to do with the fact that everything has been surviving. But I'll take it. And who knows, maybe one day our little flower garden will look as beautiful as the gardens in the ritzy neighborhoods where they hire someone to do it for them. 

Rockin' the Arts

Last night, we had to attend a "Rockin' the Arts" performance at Paiges' school. I felt like such as ass though because I completely and undeniably forgot about the whole freakin' thing! I thought it was next week! Oh well. We made it there! She did a great job! As did everyone else! Artwork covered every inch of the walls in the cafeteria, and the music part of the show opened with some 5th graders playing a few songs on the violin. Man, I was impressed! They were so good! That's such a hard instrument to play (from what I hear anyway.) Paige had a few different parts in the show last night. At one point she was playing the xylophone and singing and then she was dancing on stage with the "Jive" dancers! She was so cute!

Time flies when you're having fun

So, it just dawned on me last night that my baby boys birthday is 3 weeks away from today! Oh my goodness! Where has the time gone? I can't believe my BABY BOY is about to be THREE years old! Time flies when you're having fun! Seems like only yesterday he split me in two and said "Hello World!" 

Here he is only a few days old. His shirt reads "I have my Mommas looks and my Daddy's gas"

I remember being so nervous about having a son. I wasn't sure I would know what to do because I only had girls up until then. Everything was sorta different, but in a good way. It was definitely a learning experience for me. Having a son is the absolute best part of me. My girls are too, of course, but with my son it's just different. He is my baby boy. Always will be. He is growing so fast though.

Last week at Steak-n-Shake.
My silly boy. I love him so much!

I guess it's time to start planning a birthday party for my little man. I wonder what theme he will want. Cars?  Umizoomi? Woody? The possibilities are endless! I love party planning!

My evil spawn

In typical Monday fashion, my evil spawns are out in full force today! More irritating than ever today. I guess the girls knew I was talking about them because Brooke just yelled that Paige got her wet. Are you serious? This child is sitting in a pool (of water) and complaining that her big sister just got her wet. Un-freakin-believable. The nerve of some people, I mean really. How dare Paige get her wet. It has been like this all day long for me. First is was just me and my cranky Bubba-man, but now that the girls are home from school- it's seriously like a World War. Someone is screaming and yelling about something and the other ones are fighting, no one can agree on anything, it's just fighting, screaming and one pissed off mama non-stop. 
Oh, wait. What was that sound? Was that just laughter? Oh. My. God. It was. Wow, that's impressive. That's the first time I've heard that sound all day. I think it was Paige who laughed, probably at Brooke. At least they are getting along. For now anyways. 
And there it is. "Ahhhhhhhhhh" coming from Paige in this blood curdling scream. Fun is over. 
It's times like these that make me think back to a friend of mine, who has a four year old son, she is always telling me that she doesn't know how I handle having three kids when she goes crazy with her one sometimes. I just laugh it off and say that I don't know how I do it either. I really don't. There are times when I wanna smack them all for being so ignorant, or inconsiderate, or whatever it maybe. But I don't. I love them though, as irritating as they are. 


So with the recent video of Will Smith smacking some reporter for trying to kiss him, the radio show that I listen to in the mornings was talking about who they would be willing to attempt to kiss despite the repercussions. Well, that got me thinking. Who would I try to kiss on the red carpet? 
Jason Statham (Oh, the things I would do to him!) 
Adam Levine (Tie me up or tie me down!)
Johnny Depp (Oh. My. God.)
Steven Tyler (shut your face- I love him!) 
My list could seriously go on for awhile. But I will stop there. Let the fantasies begin! Here's the video in case you missed it: Will Smith Video It is very entertaining. And seriously? I don't blame that dude at all! How could you not try to kiss him? You should be smacked for that. 

I also feel the need to add that I know, as well as you know, that this post is meant to be pure fun. Although, given the chance to meet my guys listed above might result in me getting arrested, it would totally be worth it. 
And just in case the hubs is reading this, I love you baby and they mean nothing to me! Haha!

Bad Doggy!

My stupid dog, Bowzer, tried to eat a baby turtle this morning. Poor little guy (or girl), I didn't even realize the turtle living in our yard was pregnant, not that I could have known, but dang I would have tried to protect the babies or something. I feel so bad. Baby turtle didn't stand a chance. I'm curious as to how many other baby turtles are wondering helplessly around my yard. Hopefully I find them before Bowzer, or Krumb for that matter. Not sure what I would do, but I refuse to let him hurt any more babies. He knows he's only allowed to kill the bad animals/creatures in the yard, not the cute ones. He was so adorable. I'm so angry with Bowzer and sad for the mother turtle, wherever she is.

Sunday Morning

This weekend has been a busy one, which isn't really normal. Our weekends our usually kinda lazy. But not this time. Today will be no different either. Lots of stuff to do around the house inside and out. And I've yet to start on the scrapbook, I would like to think that I will get started on it today, but who knows for sure. 

Yesterday morning, the kids and I went with Nana looking for some yard sales. We found plenty! We both got lots of great deals! Mom racked up on a bunch of brand new toys for the kids, a TV for one of the extra bedrooms at their new house, and a Foosball table! What!?!? Yes, you read that right. I on the other hand, got a little exercise trampoline for five dollars for the kids, a gardening cart (score!), a new dress (still had tags on it), shoes (of course!) and a new beach bag (duh!). I love yard sales! I actually need to have another one here! Mom is planning one at her new place, but I'm not sure when she wants to do it yet. I may just take all the crap we have in the shed here for our yard sales over to her place. Why not? 

On a different note, I am loving my new phone! It's pretty much just like my old Thunderbolt. Richard thinks it's crap and wants me to put Cyanogen on it, but I refuse. Every time he changes crap on my phones it doesn't work right for me. So no. He will not be touching my phone. Oh snap! I just realized I didn't even tell you that I got a new phone! Yay. It's nothing fancy, but it works for what I want and need. It's a Samsung. I wanted an HTC but I didn't want to pay that price. I'm just glad to have Android again, that's all that really matters to me. I got the phone on Thursday, I think. Set it all up, downloaded all the apps I need/want and now I'm kinda obsessed with Instagram. Oh well. 

I guess that's enough rambling for this morning. The kids seem to be starving so it's time to make them some eggs and bacon, per Brookes' request.

Late Night Love

So, it's kinda late for me to be doing this, but whatever. It's been a very busy Friday for me. After getting the girls off to school, I came home and did some housework/laundry. Then shortly before lunch Myles and I went to Nanas' house to help her with some stuff. Then it was time to hurry back home and plant the sunflower seeds, I shouldn't have planted them in mid-day like that, but I wanted to do it before the girls got home and wanted to "help" so I kinda had to. But anyways, so I transplanted Paiges' sunflower into a bigger pot and I also planted sunflower seeds in like six or seven other pots. After picking up the girls, we changed and got ready to attend the Relay for Life event that was happening at Indian Summer Farms with Nana. We got to meet Sheriff Grady Judd, he's such a nice man - we've had the pleasure of meeting him before. Then, we did some shopping, I got a new breast cancer shirt that reads "Buck Cancer - Save the Racks" and yes, there's a deer on it - hence, "racks." Also, we joined all the participants in some walking, eating, and we watched some really cute dancers dressed as dalmatians doing a dance to Cruella De Ville. They were just adorable! Then we sat for a few and enjoyed some Rita's Ice, it was so refreshing. Thankfully, the rain stayed away for the most part while we were there. It sprinkled a bit at the start of it but it didn't last long or return. The kids and I didn't return home until about 8:30 and now they are both just passed completely out. It's so funny how they go be running strong all day and then BAM! They're out. It really was a great day though. And I apologize if this blog seems a little out of whack, but I'm trying to hurry, so deal with it. Anyways, here's a few pictures from today. Enjoy. And goodnight.

 Cutest dalmatian dancers ever!

Yesterday I picked up almost 100 photos from Walgreens for the Girls Scouts scrapbook that I want to make Paige. But now that I have everything I need I don't want to do it. It always seems like it's going to be a pain in the butt to do a themed scrapbook, but it's actually not. Once I get started it doesn't take long for me to finish because I will keep at it until I'm done. It's just so overwhelming because I have so much stuff to choose from for the book itself, stickers, stamps, stencils, cutouts, you name and I bet I have it. Which is a good thing, it just makes for a lot of options. I was also able to update some picture frames around the house since I printed so many. But there was a good sale going on, so it was pretty cheap actually. And who doesn't love cheap? 

Flower Power

I am so proud! The rose bulb that I planted is really starting to come up! Which of course makes me super excited because, just like with the sunflowers, it was basically just a seed and now it's getting so big! I love it!

Also, this morning when the kids and I were heading out the door for school, Brooke noticed that I sunflower had lost its petals and she was upset about it. I told her it would come back though, which made her happy again.

Our second sunflower is getting ready to present us with its first bloom, but the other flowers in the garden don't seem to be doing as well. It's kind of hard to tell really. We all know I'm no expert in the area of gardening. I am very proud of what we have accomplished thus far though. So are the kids, especially Brooke. She's such a flower child.

Also, here is a pic of the sunflowers I am helping Paige grow.

Paige is very proud.

Lions, Tigers and Bears, Oh My!

I remember as a child saying that there was a tiger in my belly when I was hungry. You could hear him roar! I think my mom initiated the whole thing and it just stuck with me. Well, earlier today I heard my sons' belly rumble, so I naturally asked him if he was hungry. He told me no. I went on to say that I heard the tiger in his belly roar because it was hungry and then I said he needed to feed the tiger before it got angry. Oh my goodness, the look on his little face was just too much! He started to freak out! He was yelling at me telling me that there was not a tiger in his belly because it would eat him. It was seriously so hard not to laugh, he was dead serious! So of course I told him it was a nice tiger and most certainly would not be eating him. After some more reassurance from yours truly he calmed down. And finally ate. But it was seriously adorable! I didn't expect to have him react the way he did, it never bothered the girls when I said it to them. Oh well. No harm, no foul, right?

No love

Most people don't really like to admit that they are an emotional person. Well, I am. And I don't mind everyone knowing, it's nothing for me to be ashamed of. It's just how I am. Take it or leave it, doesn't make a difference to me. It's hard for me not to "wear my heart on my sleeve" as some people say. I hate fighting and arguing with people. I hate conflict. Can't stand it. Every single little thing you say to me, if it hurts me, I will never forget it. It will literally eat at me forever pretty much. It sucks. I hate when someone is mad or pissed or whatever at me. It hurts me to know that I have upset someone. It happens though. No one is perfect but I never intentionally set out to hurt anyone. And if you think or see it differently than that's your issue not mine. Some people might not like the fact that I post certain shit online for everyone to see and by me doing just that, they think that I'm looking for pity. Ha. I don't really think I post anything that I shouldn't or talk about shit that I shouldn't. But if I did or if I do, and it offends you, or upsets you, or flat out pisses you off.. know this, that wasn't my intention. But maybe your issue isn't the fact that I said what I said, but more along the lines of you know you are wrong or were wrong and you don't want to admit it. I don't know. But like I said, I don't think I say anything I shouldn't and I never set out to throw someone under the bus or hurt them. That's the last thing I want. Sometimes, I post something to get other peoples' perspective on the situation, and sometimes it is just because I need to vent and let it out before it eats me alive. It's really that simple. No one is looking for pity. And if you or you or you or you can't handle that then I'm sorry. But it is what it is.

Pinterest, thank you

Found these on Pinterest and wanted to share them with you all.

Everyone Poops

Today seems more like a Monday than a Tuesday. Tuesdays are suppose to be "good" days unlike the typical "bad" Mondays. But today seriously sucks. It's only ten in the morning, and so far today I've already had a fight with my huni, gotten a busted lip from my son and now I'm stressing because I have no money to put gas in the car, so now I am not sure how I am going to be able to pick the girls up from school later. This sucks. WTF is wrong with you Tuesday?! What are you thinking? I thought we were friends. Guess I was wrong. 

And now my son is bouncing up and down and walking on his tippy toes in hopes of stopping the inevitable, which is just going to the bathroom. Silly boy, when will you learn? Everyone poops. Stop fighting it. So now it looks like most of my day will be spent in the bathroom trying to get you to poop. Thanks. If  you weren't so damn cute, I don't know what I would do. That cute card does wonders for you, son.

This is seriously how I feel today.

I wish it were that simple.

Mama NEEDS Android Again!

So, I must admit, I am a tad frustrated this morning. My huni buni gave me his old HTC Shift Android phone last night because I've been bitching and moaning for SO long about getting a new phone. Mind you, I have this piece of crap phone that I can't really do anything on, not even Internet really because it sucks. Seriously. I do have the Thunderbolt, but apparently I'm pretty clumsy and it's got a giant crack across the screen. Also, GTalk and the camera don't work on it anymore because of my huni putting different Roms and crap on it. So my point is this... he is a programmer, he does ALL kinds of crap to and for phones. He's looked upon like he's a "God" or something in the developer community, which is fine. He gets all kinds of phones just handed to him left and right to work on. He has the latest, greatest of everything, and I have this BUNK ASS phone. WTF! The phone I want isn't really all that great even, but it's better than what I have now which isn't even an Android phone at all. I think Mom should be able to have a bad ass phone too, right? Well, instead of him getting me a phone he gives me his old phone. Really? Is it too much to ask for a NEW phone? Fresh out of the box? No scratches. No issues. Not a hand-me-down? I don't think so. But you know what? Beggars can't be choosers. So I will take this Shift and set it up and try to get it switched over to Metro, but I think it's going to cost like $80 he said and the damn phone I wanted is only $120! If I'm going to spend $80 to get his old phone hooked up for me then what's an extra $40 for a BRAND NEW PHONE?? It's ridiculous really in my opinion. And I know I shouldn't be picky or whatever but screw that. The whole reason for me wanting a new HTC phone is for Sense and I can't have Sense on the Shift he gave me because he put Cyanogenmod on it. No offense to my huni and his friends' Rom and crap but I want HTC Sense damnit!  

So, this is me ranting this morning. I hope you enjoyed it because I know I did. What do you think? Should I just take the phone and shut my mouth? Or should I continue to bitch until I get what I want?

Lord, Have Mercy!

I thought the WHOLE purpose of Mother's Day was to celebrate Mom and all the great things that she does... so why won't my brats stop aggravating me? Good grief! I thought this was suppose to be the one sure fire day of the year that my kids are suppose to be little angels. I shouldn't have to yell, or scream, or get mad or anything like that, they should be waiting on me hand and foot. I should have been left alone this morning so that for once I could actually sleep in. Are they doing any of those things? No. Of course not. I'm still responsible for cleaning the living room which they have COMPLETELY destroyed after cleaning it once already. I still have to finish the laundry and clean the kitchen AND cook dinner for us all. And they still woke me up at the butt crack of dawn. A mother's job is never done, and that's why I say next year we protest. 

Screw Mother's Day. 
I want a Mother's Week!

Just sayin'.

The only difference between yesterday and today for me is that today I got presents. Lots of them. I love my babies and they love me. They drive me insane but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to us all!!

Who's a proud Mom? This Mom!

Yesterday, my oldest daughter Paige bridged from being a Brownie Scout to a Junior Scout! I'm so proud of her! 

She also received special recognition for being the top cookie seller of her Troop. She sold 251 boxes of cookies! Way to go, Paige! As impressive as that may sound, there were two girls yesterday who also received an award for selling over 1,000 boxes each! Now that's impressive! I don't think I could have handled that, I almost lost my mind with the 250 we sold!

Paige is on the far left and the 2 girls in green vests are the ones who sold over 1,000 boxes!

I'm such a proud Mama! I took over one hundred photos yesterday for the scrapbook I am going to make Paige! I will also be making one for our Troop. Which is fine by me of course because I love making scrapbooks! And I found a Girl Scout scrapbook on sale for $3 at Big Lots the other day! (Yay!) 

Some of the girls in her Troop

After the ceremony we took the girls out for ice cream to celebrate! It was a perfect hot and sunny day for it too! 

Best ice cream in town!

So, all in all yesterday was a great day! I'm proud of my "baby" girl. She's growing so fast!
