Saira got movies

I got Ryan off to school and then Saira and I got ready and went to Best Buy. She spent her $50 gift card that my mom gave her for her birthday. We saved it so that she could get Lady and the Tramp. So we got that, SharkTales and Caliou. She's watched them all but SharkTales...lol We stopped at Starbucks to get some Frappucino's. Then we got hamburgers at DQ. I stopped at a store to look at capri's. Didn't buy any though. :) We headed home and that's been it. We got Ryan from school. And I've been doing partylite stuff. It will be time to fix dinner in a little bit. Tonight is American Idol, so I'll be watching that. :)

I had a busy day, but that's all to it in a nut shell...LOL

A Nice Weekend

Saira spent the night with her MeMaw and PePaw last night. Actually she was staying the night with her cousin, Shyanne. Saira calls her "Hy-anne" LOL Saira can't say the 's' sound. She's my 1 year old niece. She's cute as a button and is always wanting to go home with me...LOL One day soon I'll bring her home with me, but not just yet...LOL

We got up this morning and headed over to Chad's mom and dad's to pick up Saira. We stayed their for a couple of hours and visited. We came back home and ate pizza for lunch. Chad took a nap and I watched my movie, 'In Her Shoes'. I'm not done with it just yet. After I'm done blogging I'm going to finish it. :) At 3pm we all got ready to go over to a friend of Chad's. He made a brisket, beans and tator salad. This mans wife passed away last year so when ever he invites us over we try to go visit him. :) One good thing is that this man CAN COOOOOOOK! I love his food!! Then after we ate, we went over to the deer lease so Chad and Ryan could shoot their guns. Geeee, that was way to much fun for me....lmao!!! Can't wait for next time. (can you since my sarcasm) :) :) :)

Sad week

On Monday Saira, Nina and I went to Best Buy to buy my printer/scanner/copier after we dropped her truck off at the shop. While we were in the store my aunt calls to tell my that another aunt of mine had passed away. Last week she was diagnosed with cancer of the esophogus(sp). And was told she had about 3 weeks. She opted for no help or medicine. Since she was 78 (I think). She was in her late 70's. We think she was just ready to go. Her husband, my grandma and great aunts brother, passed away from cancer back in '92. I heard the year he passed away the other day and couldn't believe it had been that long. :( His birthday is St. Patty's day. :) I'll always remember his birthday. But anyways, I haven't stayed in contact with that part of my family in years. We all just kinda grew apart. But I remember as a kid always going to Aunt Hazel and Uncle Bubba's house. They had a juke box in their house and I'd always pick "Just a Swing'n" from John Anderson over and over again. lol But now that him, her and my grandparents are gone, all that's left is my great aunt, Bettie Anne. When ever I would talk about my aunt in the past, she's the one I would be refering too. Bettie Anne does alot for the family. She's the one who bought Saira her Disney Princess TV for Christmas. :)

But anyways, I've been real down this week. Thinking about family and all that. Also, it's been 3 years that my grandpa's been gone. He passed away day before Saira was 1 month old. So it was a very emotional time for me then.

So on Wednesday was the funeral. I went to Pasadena for the funeral and then Bettie Anne and I went up to central Texas to a town called Mexia for the gravesite service. It was a 3 hour trip up there. We left Pasadena at 12pm and got there at 3pm. Service didn't start until 4pm. LOL So we sat and talked. :) Then it was a short and sweet little service done by one of Aunt Hazel's sons. Then we stopped at the local Radio Shack so I could get a car charger...LOL My cell phone was almost dead. So I didn't get home until 10:15pm

Wow, it's been awhile!

I have alot to update on....

First, about Ryan's Valentine's party. It went really well. I was very happy with how it turned out. We had soooo much food.

Friday we received out Income Tax Return. Sooooo, we've been shopping. :) Chad bought his first pistol. He's soooo excited. I got a new digital camera. Still need to get a memory stix for it. And I'm also getting a new printer combo 3 in 1 thing. I also spent $120 something at my MaryKay party last night. My face is good to go for awhile...LOL The kids got new bikes. They are so excited about those as well.

Chad took me out to eat Friday night. Just the two of us. It was really nice going out alone. The kids were staying the night with his parents.

So back to my MaryKay party last night. Saira participated in the fun. She had her own makeup station. My friend gave her red lipstick. And later she got black eyeshadow...LOL She looked so freak'n cute! This morning I explained to her that she's not allowed to have that kind anymore. It was only for the special party. And she was fine with that. And so here's a pic of her....

I'm exhausted from my weekend. So I'm headed to bed.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly!

That is how I discribe my day!

The day started off really GREAT!!! Best Friend Nina comes and picks Saira and I up and we head to town. We were taking her truck to get a front end allignment. But that didn't happen, had to get an appointment until Saturday morning. That's alright, we decided we needed to go to Wal-Mart. We don't really know why we went, but do people who go to Wal-Mart like every other day need a reason for going? HEHE! That would be us, we live at Wal-Mart. So anyways, Nina hears a man laugh. It was Chad walking by. I guess I could've mentioned that he didn't make it to work this morning. He had a blowout and had to wait on getting it fixed. So him and his buddy were roaming Wal-Mart. He spots me and we had a fun time picking out a box of chocolates for me. Gotta tell ya, I'm probably the most pickiest person when it comes to boxed chocolates. I don't go for the el' cheapo kinds. It's gotta be either Whitman's or Russell Stover's. OR!!! Hershey's Pot of Gold! Looooove that stuff. So he learned a long time ago not to buy the cheap junk. It will just sit there for month to come. Then he goes and picks out a card for me. We shuffled around the clothing department and didn't find anything I liked. So we buy out stuff we gathered... :) Then Nina, Saira and I go to our favorite all time local Mexican food place. MMmmmm!! Chad and his buddy headed on home because they already ate. Nina and I had more shopping left in us. :) We go to PayLess, didn't find anything. We go to Cato's! BINGO!! I find a 3 piece outfit I just had to have. I call up Chad and tell him I found something I liked and he told me to get it. It was just $55. I did good. :) So I got an outfit, chocolates and a card. hehe!

After I picked Ryan up from school we all got ready to go take Family Pictures. What a freakiing JOKE that was. I've already told Java all about it. I almost don't even want to talk about it anymore. BUT... It's part of my day. So here comes the bad... The kids were complete morons! It really wasn't their fault. There was a woman with a kid who all the sudden decided they wanted to take pictures. My picture lady said no one has been in today, and when I showed up, this other woman shows up. We have not done pictures in a year. ...well, actually we haven't taken family pictures since Saira was 4 MONTHS OLD! She hasn't taken pictures since her 2nd birthday. It's been a year. She was ALL excited! That womans child kept distracting my kids. I was pissed off. I was planning on spending over $100, like we always do with family pictures. Because we get a group shot, a couple shot, dad with kids, mom with kids and the kids together. We left with only a group shot. I cried on the way home. I had been looking forward to having new pictures for my walls for a very long time. My children ended up getting in trouble over it. I know you all might think I'm crazy or something, but I take picture taking seriously. That's why I got so mad over this STUPID woman. My picture lady had them leave, but they came RIGHT back. It just wasn't working.... ANYWHO! Enough of all that. :)

I got a new outfit... did I tell ya that? :) LMAO

Hmm, I suppose that's it. I'll be back with new stuff tomorrow. Ryan has his Valentine's Party. I can't wait to see how it goes. I'm in charge of it ya know. So it's bound to be a big hit. hehe!!!

Haaa, got it anyways!

Gonna reverse my day here on ya....LOL

I got Starbucks tonight, he can kiss my big fat butt! Nanny nanny boo boo!! LMAO

But anyways, the kids and I went to Houston to visit my mom. The kids needed some time with their Meme. On the way there I stopped at the video store and rented 'Phantom of the Opera'. She hadn't seen it on dvd yet. It was awesome watching it again, especially at her house...for 2 reasons. 1st is because her and I LOOOOVE that movie. I wish we could see it live sometime!! 2nd is because she has surround sound. AWESOME AWESOME!!!!! The kids watched Bambi 2 and Madagascar. She had pizza, tuna subs, fries and onion rings delievered for us. :) Then they had ice cream. :) After all that we went to my aunts house to visit with her for a few minutes and that's when we went to Starbucks. The kids were soooo excited. And after all this time I finally remembered to tell them no cream on Saira's. She was glad of that. She's so weird, doesn't like cream on hers. Strang child in deed.

I got home at 8pm, got on the confrence call for PartyLite training, did that for 20 minutes and then watched the Snowboarding and Speed skating on the Olympics with Chad. :)

Now I'm ready for bed. :) Nighty night folks!

Family Time

Today we took the kids to the movies. We originally planned on seeing 'Curious George'. Then we changed our minds to 'Nanny McPhee'. But nope, we did it again, changed our minds to see 'Hoodwinked'. It was cute I must say. The kids had a great time. Then we took the kids upstairs at the play area to ride the big carousel. We did that twice. And for lunch the kids wanted pizza from the food court, so they got that as well. Ryan wanted to play some of the games at the arcade room, so Saira and grabbed some cookies to take home and went to Bath and Body Works, so I could grab a 'Wall Flower'. Those things are soooo awesome! I wish PartyLite would make a plug in :) To match the candles we love to burn. Wouldn't that be nice? And I also wish they made car fresheners. That would be cool too.

So we had a great time at the Mall. Then the kids got me all thirsty for Starbucks. Saira started asking Chad if we could go. He kept ignoring her...LOL He finally said NO. I was ticked! LOL The kids had me all ready for it. MEN, UGH!!

So he stops at the gas station on the way home and gets himself and Ryan a Yoohoo and me a Starbucks drink in the glass jars. I was like, geee thanks...LOL But I drank it was actually alright with it :)

On our way home we decided to stop at Chad's mom and dad's so the kids could visit with their MeMaw and PePaw. Stayed there til 8pm...lol I got home and fell asleep around 9pm. I was pooped!

It was a GREAT DAY!! Minus the Starbucks situation. I think he's in trouble... ;)

What Kind of Soul Are You?

You are a peace maker soul.

You strive to please others and compromise anyway you can.
War or conflict bothers you, and you would do anything to keep the peace.
You are a good mediator and a true negotiator.
Sometimes you do too much, trying so hard to make people happy.

While you keep the peace, you tend to be secretly judgmental.
You lose respect for people who don't like to both give and take.
On the flip side, you've got a graet sense of humor and wit.
You're always dimplomatic and able to give good advice.

Souls you are most compatible with: Warrior Soul, Hunter Soul and Visionary Soul

Bookfair time

Wooooo Wooooo, it's book fair time at Ryan's school. Last year I had soooo much fun helping with it. So this year I decided I must do it again. Last year I just helped the kids, but this year I'm doing the cash register.

For lunch I went over to my friends house and bummed some food from her, cause I didn't feel like going home. So Saira and I ate and then went back to the school. When I got back Ryan had already been to the bookfair and picked out 4 books. 1 was $10. I was wanting to get 2 for him and 2 for her. So that wasn't going to work, with what he picked out...lol So I made it up to him in buying a suprise poster for him. It was a Texas Longhorns poster. He was tickled to death. I told him that MAYBE he can get another at the end of the week.

Last night I wrote up a letter for the teacher to hand out to the parents. I'm incharge of the Valentine's Day party. Right after school was out, I already had a parent to call and let me know what she wanted to bring. She had first dibs. :) Suprised my neighbor hasn't called. Her son is in Ryan's class. Ya'll remember her, the one who potty trained Saira...lol But anyways I hope I get a good response from all the parents. There is only 10 of us. At the begining of school, there was 15 kids. 5 have left...thank goodness, there were WAY to many boys in that classroom. Still is, but it's not as bad. There were 4 girls and 11 boys. Crazy huh? Now there are 7 boys and 3 girls.

Got me all razzed

A friend of mines blog entry has me all razzled... check it out.
clutteredlife.com: Wheeze.

This crap has always been my number one all time pet peeve. It's ridiculous how rude smokers can be. I have a friend that doesn't come to visit me cause my house is smoke free and she doesn't care to go outside all the time to go smoking. Oh well, that's her own problem. I'm talking of my friend that I visit daily, drink coffee with, play cards or play pool with.
