Because I feel like it

Pip got me tickets to this guy’s concert in November.¬† I’m pretty excited. ūüôā

And of course embedding is disabled, so click it.¬† It’s worth it.

I was going to get all negative and post another “Things I hate about Public Schools”, but I think I’ll try to go with positive instead.¬† See how good I am?

Things I’m loving this week:

My new car

We did this (awhile ago, but still) and it was really so fun.  We might just do it once a month or more.  Life slowed down, our attitudes changed, our voices were lowered.  We told stories and talked to neighbors.  It was great.

This shirt and several others on this site.  The cute cuteness is too much!  And TM would approve of this one because it is white.

This path because it’s very similar to the one going into my back yard to replace the crumbling 70 year old one that was there.¬† Well ok, probably not 70, as we found a Bubble Yum wrapper with a bar code on it under the cement.¬† I don’t think there were bar codes 70 years ago.¬† I’ll post pictures of the finished yard.

And lastly, Sunday starts a streak of days in the 70’s.¬† After today’s nasty snowstorm I am totally loving that!

TM’s 2 cents

TM (while walking to the car): “Mommy, you look nice in white.”

Me: “Thanks buddy.”

TM: “Yeah, but you’re not wearing white.¬† You’re wearing black and black does not look nice on you.”

Me: “Um, well thank you for being honest.”

I spy…trouble ahead

We are on Spring Break this week.  Because of that and the temperature being 70 degrees I took the kids and a friend of DQ (a boy) to the zoo.  In the backseat on the way home I heard this:

DQ: “Let’s play I Spy.”

Boy (we’ll call him B): “Ok.¬† I spy something blue.”

DQ and TM guessing various blue things for a while and exhausting everything they could think of.

B to DQ: “No.¬† I’ll just tell you.¬† Your eyes.”

Next round that B does the spying.

B: “I spy something Blonde.”

Oh Boy.

Spring is here and after the long freezing winter it feels so good.

We have had a lot going on here the last month, and I simply have not had time to blog about it all.¬† Rather than backtrack I’m going to start afresh.¬† I made some Wee Bunnies for the kids’ baskets.¬† They are super easy and super cute, and the pattern is free, so there is no excuse.¬† Go make one!¬†

And for funsies, here is a picture of the little Easter cuties waiting for the go ahead to find their eggs.  TM is trying to give everyone an excellent view of his nasal cavities.  Hope everyone had a great Easter!

I’ve been tagged


The sweet Tracy at Twisted Blossom has given me an award for having an amazing blog.¬† I am so very flattered (blush).¬† Along with the award she has tagged me to write “7 weird things about me.”¬† This should be very interesting and I’m wondering how honest I should be…hmmm…here goes…

1)¬†At fast food restaurants¬†I do not eat the food that has fallen out of the item I’m eating onto the paper it came wrapped in.¬† The paper is gross and the food that touches it is gross.¬† This does not include the item I’m eating, even though the “gross” paper was surrounding it mere moments earlier.¬† For example: A taco.¬† I will eat the taco, but if a tomato (or anything else) falls out onto the paper? Nasty.

2) I do not like my face touched by other people.¬† Even my own children.¬† Other people’s hands carry germs and I do not want them on my face.

3) I am CONVINCED that if one smells another¬†person’s¬†gas, one’s own gas will then smell oddly similar.¬† This is very funny, as I do not have the most sensitive nose, so I’m not sure how I know this is true.¬† Didn’t really want to reveal this one for the entire world to see, but decided to be honest. ūüôā¬† Pip thinks I’ve lost my marbles.

4) It really bothers me when people are dressed season inappropriate in winter.¬† Shorts and winter do not go together.¬† Especially in Colorado.¬† This is odd, because I’m from the Phoenix area where shorts and winter do go together.¬†

5) I very rarely (if ever) serve a monotone dinner.¬† I would never serve pasta with cream sauce, cauliflower and bread.¬† I just couldn’t do it.¬† There has to be a color in there somewhere.¬† I think I must get this from my mom.¬† Or maybe grandmother.¬† I think I remember her mentioning that my grandmother had the same issue.

6) I cry.¬† Probably a lot.¬† Over really dumb stuff.¬† I have cried while watching every single Winnie the Pooh movie.¬† I have to choke back tears when reading to my kids because the books are just so good.¬† I’ve just about lost it in museums when looking at paintings.¬† If I wouldn’t be a public nuisance and if I let myself, I would probably weep through an entire performance of Handel’s Messiah.¬† I am¬†tearing up¬†while typing this because I’m thinking about it.¬† It’s pathetic.

7) I hate running into people I know in places I would not normally run into them.  For instance, the grocery store.  If I see someone I know I try to duck into the next aisle without being seen.  It throws me off guard and I feel like I have nothing to say and am just tripping over words.  This can even be a good friend. 

I know.¬† I’m weird.¬† And I don’t know any other bloggers (other than Tracy)¬†well enough to feel comfortable tagging them.¬† Sadly, I’m more of a lurker.¬† Thanks again Tracy.
