Hello, Monday!

So happy that this day has finally arrived!!

The kids are back to school and DJ starts his Tee Ball Practice!!

I can't wait to see all of the kids out on the field practicing.. lol So cute! The other night DJ and I went to Sports Authority to get him some cool new cleats.. The guy that was helping us was the manager and told me that he runs a special every year for Little League Players! We got 20% off his cleats!

Yesterday the kids were sick and were throwing up all throughout saturday night. Allen loves wearing Reagan's Tinkerbell Robe.. He did not want to take it off and wore it for about 3 hours.. lol
 This was Dave's outfit when he was a baby!! hahaha!!

Reagan stayed on the couch most of the day with Scratch :)

Beautiful.... the weather here in sunny california has been absolutely gorgeous lately! I can't believe it was 72 degrees yesterday, in February.
The kids played in the house until it was warm enough to go outside. They were having so much fun playing on the McQueen 4-wheeler... I love these kids with all of my heart!

{My Blondies...}
{ ♥ ♥ ♥ }
{Look at those Curls!!}
{Silly Babes!}
{As you can see, Allen was not amused...}

The kids had so much fun playing outside and running out all of their pent up energy. The kids have been home this whole week for Presidents Week. I was going stir crazy and had to get out of the house. All three of them ran and ran and ran till they passed out!
{Playing with Chez}
{Crazy Kids!!}
{that is some seriously dead grass.. lol}

So the Hotel for Vegas is booked for July!! I am so excited!! Some of My Team and I are going to the 2012 Scentsy Convention! You have absolutely no idea how excited I am! Plus, I have never been to Vegas. Well, I have had layovers and flight changes there, but I haven't been on the strip.. Dave on the other hand, is freaking out a little.. He will be home with all three kids for 5 days... hahaha I can't help but laugh.. I told him that he now gets to see what I go through every day. Of course family will help him and things like that.
{Even my planner is ready!!!}

My UPS guy is going to know me by first name by tuesday. I have had 3 deliveries this week and 2 coming next week.. hahaha Today I got my Tester Bag & I love it! So if you need any Scentsy, you know where to go! HERE!
{Isn't she pretty?!?}
{still have more scents to put in there!}

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!! DJ starts T-Ball Practice on Monday & I am gonna go enroll DJ into Kindergarten... Eeek!

New Ink!!!

Yesterday I started my big present to myself! I said that once I lost 50lbs and kept it off for 1 week, I was going to get my big Tattoo!!!

Here is the 30 second sketch he did..

Back story:

Koi Fish are symbolic for Family and Good Luck.

I remember wanting a Koi for the longest time, even before I started having kids. I love the meanings and cultures behind them. When I reached my 50lb weight loss goal, I knew exactly what I wanted to do! The Koi will be swimming up stream, which means you have overcome and/or are overcoming hardship and trying times. The colors I will be using are Black: Father, Red/Orange: Mother, Blue/White: Boy & Pink/Red: Girl. Those are also the colors of the Japanese flags that are flown on Children's Day..

I am so excited about this piece. This piece is My Family!  

{Stencil is on and we are ready to rock!! If I wiggle my fingers, the tail moves.. hahahaha}

{Outline is done!!}

{All cleaned up! Love this already!}

I will be adding everything else in about 2-3 more sittings. My arm was so raw just after this area. The crease and my elbow hurt the most.

And to leave you with something funny..
This was hanging in the shop:

{If you are
 On Drugs
Dirty or Else
 Please Come Back
 When You Are Not!}

Germs, Stay Away!

I for one, am so tired of having sick children...
About a week ago, Reagan came home with something and it has completely destroyed 3 family members. Reagan had the nasty cough, green snotty nose and fever. It lasted about 2 days before poor Allen got it. Allen's cough sounds so painful and his cries definitely show it.

Last night Allen started coughing so bad, he was choking and puked everywhere.. and when I mean everywhere, I mean everywhere.. Poor little guy can't catch a break and has felt so miserable. I took them to the dr this morning and both kids have Double EI's and Red Throats. Reagan had to get her ears flushed because of how waxy her ears get. I swear this child can make a candle a week with all that wax.. {okay, that was a little gross.. haha} and oh how fun that was..

So Reagan has two liquid antibiotics and her 2 inhalers & Allen has 2 liquid antibiotics.. I was looking to pick up a new Nebulizer because the one the dr gave us is on its last leg.. So, when I finally find one at the 10th store I stopped at, they said that I needed a prescription for it.. Excuse me?! Since when do you need an Rx for a freaking nebulizer?? I was pretty pissed!

So this afternoon I am on the hunt for a nebulizer...

Well the littlest is crying, Hope you all have a great thursday!

Oh on a good note, DJ is on the GIANTS T-Ball Team!!! Whoo Hoo!

It's About Time!!!

Photo Dump Friday....

This morning I was finally able to do something cute with Miss. Reagan's hair!! Her hair is s.l.o.w.l.y growing.. As in, she has only had a trim to fix the uneven-ness... We believe it has to do with her Pica & being borderline Anemic.


Here is her adorable Valentine's Day Hair Do!!! {yes, I know I am a few days early.. so what!}
{How freaking cute are those?!?}

{All together now... Awwww!}

{I would rather spend an evening like this making memories with my kids, than anything else!}

{The Tooth Fairy came to the kids class! She said the creepiest thing ever..
Student: What happens to all of the teeth after you take them?
Tooth Fairy: Well, I build my castle with all of the teeth I collect.
kinda grossed out, not gonna lie!}

{Our transmission in our honda finally gave up on wednesday morning.. Thank God Dave works at a dealership. So while our Transmission is being fixed, I get to drive around in a 2012 Acura TSX.. I am absolutely in love with this car!!! I will definitely shed a few tears when we have to give it back..}

{My Scentsy Starter Kit came in the mail!! I already have a few parties lined up and after being a Consultant for four days, I am already sponsoring an amazing friend!! I love my team!}

{Yes, I will admit that if Target had DJ's size, He would have been the new owner of this shirt.. hahaha}

{Zebra Print Nails}

Hope Ya'll have a fabulous friday!!

Winner of the giveaway will be announced on Monday!!
