{Converations with Hannah}

We went to Dallas this weekend and on Sat. night at Grandma's house after grandma had retired to bed, Jim and Cameron were watching tv in living room and I went and layed down in the guest room to read and Hannah comes in and she is admiring the new comforter set that was on the bed and we talked about it, she liked the silky part and she really liked the decorator pillows, there was a rounded tootsie roll pillow and she starts messing with it, I am still reading, she is balancing the pillow on her feet while lying beside me, and she decides she likes this pillow so much she names it "Larenda" yeah ok, she talks to it, I'm thinking "wow my girl is either bored or just jacking around! she tells me to tell L hello, so, I do. She then ask if she can see my reading glasses, I said "H I am reading and need them" she said really needs them because she can't see real well all of a sudden, alrighty, so I let her wear them and all of a sudden she can see much better, (not really, her vision is fine) and she wants me to hold up my fingers so she can show me how she can't see with out them and puts them on and can identify the fingers I am holding up perfectly, this is getting old, then I am told to do symbols with my hands, love, thumbs up, etc... you get the picture! I finally get my glasses back, she gets Larenda again, and I continue to read...

{Goings on}

Let's see, what's going on around here to report, had a good weekend, went out to our favorite mexican place Amigo Juan's on Friday night, got Red Box movies, I watched Four Christmases and it was okay a little too slap sticky, Jim got a scary one. On Sat. Jim worked, the kids and I just layed low during the day and that night we had my sis and her family over for game night, I got a sandwich tray, we had chips/dips, and brownies for dessert, and we were still hungry the s/w didn't go far so Jim whipped up some bean and cheese quesadillas using his tortilla cooker and they were really good, we gobbled them up quick!! the adults played battle of the sexes and we didn't do too well and weren't having fun with it, so we played Monopoly, this is Jim's fav. game ever and he is the expert, we had the best time playing, we always have fun together, the kids played some of their games, then got bored of that and played dress up, watched a movie, basically just played away!!! they left around midnight and the kids thought that was too cool, they were up til midnight, they never get to do that and thought they were all that, ha!

We did skip church on Sunday, I know shame on us, but we were tired and needed a sleep in morning, again we hung out, the kids and I ran to Target and then I had a meeting at church at 4 and then we I got home Jim grilled some steaks for dinner and our weekend came to an end. The kids are preparing for end of school which is a week from Thurs. so not too much going on at school, Hannah has gym. tonight and is very excited because she has perfected the backhand spring and can't wait to do it again!!!! and tonight is sloppy joe's and french fries for dinner, so that's the "goings on" around here!!! Later peeps!

Here are a few of the "crafty things" I have done lately

This is lemon sugar scrub that I made my mom for MD, it was very easy to make, I used ribbon and cardstock that I already had and made this very cute gift!!

This here is an ovaltine container, H needed something for all her pencils and I saw some possibilites in this, so again, cardstock and embellishments and wala!!! she likey!!

And I just went crazy over these little cuties, I had never made any of these toppers and they are all over bloggy land, so I had to give them a try, everyone really liked them and they made the butter pecan cupcakes taste even yummier!!!

{Keepin it Positive}

Okay, I will it's as easy as that huh. Today has been a tough day so far, for the second night I didn't sleep well, my legs have been hurting and are therefore restless, I kick around, bend and straighten them, drives my husband nuts, and then I am completely tired and wore out the next day, which is today, I am exhausted, and I love the dark circles under my eyes, they are very becoming you know. MS really does suck eggs, at least it doesn't bother me all the time, but when it does, it's a real doozie, in case your wondering when my legs hurt it feels like I have the flu in my legs, I learned that years ago at an MS dinner meeting, I voiced my symptoms and people started saying that is what it is, some have it all the time, it never stops, but I am usually every other week for about a day so I am very thankful not to hurt continuously. I am waiting for the doctor to call me in some pain pills, I was hesitant but it will help so that's what I'll do, darn legs!!

It is getting really hot here, too hot for me already, and it's really windy, like crazy windy, blow your hair off your head windy, you get the picture... anyways, I was supposed to go grocery shopping today but I just don't have it in me, I need alot of things and using coupons and all my list really are a job in itself and I just couldn't muster up the strength, so hopefully, fingers crossed, I'll get a good night's sleep and be all ready for a good day tomorrow! now what a positive thinker I am, ha!

{My Mother's Day}

I have had some issues trying to post today, thank goodness it's working for me. Mother's Day started with breakfast in bed, going to church, and then a lunch prepared by my husband and kiddos, then later in the afternoon I went over to my Mamaws house and it was just us ladies and we had some yummy desserts and coffee, gut busting laughing, it sure feels good to that, it's good for the soul! we really had a nice time together, then it was back home to a house that had no dirty dishes, so I just took it easy, what a great day!!

I am a "coupon queen in training" at this time, I have always been a couponer if you will, but for the past several months I have been getting more serious about it, I love to price match at Wal-Mart and now I am getting die hard about the coupons, even more so than normal, I mean I wanna be one of those women who pay like 15.00 for 150.00 worth of groceries, you know the ones I am talking about they are always on a tv bragging about their deals, and I think it's really cool, I may not reach their levels because it's like a full time job, but I wanna get better, I wanna brag about it people!!! ha I want you guys to be jealous of me and my deals, haha! okay, seriously this is what I am currently doing, I am learning off of a websited called Fabulessly Frugal, she is great and knows her stuff, so I am addicted, I have been taking notes, learning some new "coupon lingo" and I am having so much fun with it, I even went out and bought me a little photo album to organize them in, I am starting small and if it's something I really get good at then I will move up to a larger storage album, but for now it's baby steps. Today, I went to Albertsons because they had a deal on select Kellogs cereal for $1.49 each, and Betty Crocker brownie mixes 2/4, well I had coupons for the cereal already so I got 4 boxes cereal each coupon was 2/1, I had a .75 coupon for the brownies, so for 5.15 I got 4 cereals and 2 brownie mixes, and then I got a "catalina" those are the coupons that print out with the receipt 1 was a $3 coupon from Kellogs and the other was 20% off at Payless shoes, and next time I go I have $3 free dollars to use on any Kellogs products!!! how exciting is that????? do you coupon????
