Erin & I with the party planner Amanda!
Thanks Amanda for putting together our birthday dinner!  I had a great time and appreciate it!!

Amy & I

Thanks again Amanda for putting this all together, it was fun to get together with the gang and eat some yummy food!! 

Happy Girl

A couple days ago, Amy brought her girls over to play with the triplets, along with her niece Emilia who she is now nannying for.  Emilia is 6 months old, and is quite the cutie!!  I told Amy, that these photos were blog-worthy :-)


Prepping for the BIG birthday extravaganza tomorrow at the Munro’s household!  They are doing a joint birthday for all four kids since their birthday’s are all within 6 weeks of each other!  So Alex & I have been busily helping prep and decorate!  Julia goes all out for her parties and this one is no exception!  Just wait…you’ll be blown away!!  So until then….

Sure, Sharing is Easy…

When you get to play with Cori’s iPhone!

I downloaded a couple of fun toddler educational games onto my phone for free…the kids are loving them!!  Have an iPhone or iPod Touch and toddlers, check out Toddler Tap- Transportation and Shapes.  My guys love them, plus they’re learning their shapes and ways to get from here to there!

Bellevue Spray Park

We had a gorgeous day yesterday, so we headed to the spray park for some water fun!  Jaime came with her girls and Amy brought her girls and her niece Emilia!  We enjoyed the sun while the kids enjoyed the water!

25 Years Ago…

On August 24, 1985, this beautiful little girl entered the world!  


Now who could that be?!  Hmmmmm…

Funny thing is look my mouth was big even as a baby!!  My poor parents claim I never shut it.  I spent the first year of my life screaming with colic, and then talked nonstop ever since!  I don’t know how they managed to make it to the who I am today….big mouth and all!

My smiles look pretty similar, then and now, except I have a few more teeth today :)


Versatile? Me?

I am honored to receive two more awards (again they come in two’s don’t get it!).  Both of them were “versatile” awards, these are the second and third versatile awards I’ve received.  Since I wasn’t 100% sure on the definition, I thought I out to check the definition – you know, just to make sure it’s a good thing to be! 

Versatile: capable of or adapted for turning easily from one to another of various tasks, fields of endeavor, etc.: a versatile writer.

Hmmm…..I always thought I was more of a boring mediocre writer.  I don’t write about exciting things, let’s face it, what I right about is boring!  I don’t understand why others find it entertaining!  My blog is just my daily every day life…nothing extreme or overly exciting…just me, mediocre  me, nothing more, nothing less! 

With that being said, I feel BEYOND honored to be considered a Versatile blogger in the eyes of several of my readers.  I love that you can get past my mediocre-ess and enjoy my blog and my writing!  I’m a very lucky writer!

BIG THANK YOU, to Emily of Family and Life in Las Vegas for passing these awards on to me!!  I greatly appreciate it!!  Emily’s blog is anything BUT mediocre, definitely check it out!!



 Now the fun part of awards, passing them along to other blogs!!  In no particular order, seven blogs that I find are not mediocre and yet FABULOUS and extremely VERSATILE!

  • A Belle, A Bean and a Chicago Dog ~ Blogs about her life with her two adorable little girls!  Liz has been a great helping me become a better blogger!
  • Taming Insanity ~ I wish I had a award to give her for the BEST titles for her blog posts!!  They are always so witty and spot on! 
  • Mommy of a Monster (& Toddler Twins) ~ Fun blog about a mama trying to survive three small kids!  I totally relate with her, since she has twin girls – or ladies as she calls them!
  • Old Tweener ~ I think Sherri is my #1 commenter!  She is awesome and I love her blog tagline “Between Changing Diapers and Wearing Them!”
  • Kludgy Mom ~ She is hosting an AWESOME 6 week blogging course, Back To School, Back To Blogging!  I can’t wait for it to start!!
  • Mama’s Losin’ It ~ The one and only Queen of the world renowned Writer’s Workshop!
  • View From Down Here ~ This lady is getting married in less then a month!  Love following her journey towards her wedding day!!

Getting To Know You, Getting To Know All About You

Who doesn’t just love a good musical???!!!  I know I do!  I’m a big musical girl my “older” favorites include Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Rogers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, Singing In the Rain, Meet Me In Saint Louis and OOOO-Klahoma (aren’t you singing along too!?). The “newer” musicals I enjoy are GREASE and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat!  I love me a good musical!  *SIGH*
Anyway, that’s totally off subject!  Tonight, I’m linking up and participating in ….

Getting to know YOU
So here I go…..

1. If you could host a Reality TV show, which one would it be?
Hmmm, that’s a toss up!  I’d love to host Survivor, because while everyone else is suffering I could partake in the show, without the camping part or the lack of cleanliness :)


The Amazing Race, I’d love to travel to the different places they go!

2. Do you put your seatbelt on before or after you start the car?
Hmmm….I almost have to go and sit in the car to see what I do.  I’m pretty sure I belt up before I turn the car on – or do it as I’m turning the car on!

3. Shave or hair removal cream?
Shave my legs, wax my eyebrows!

4. What’s your favorite feature in a house?
WINDOWS!  Boring, I know, but a home would be quite boring and dark without the windows, don’t ya think?
5. What is your favorite "Fall" scent?
Toss up between Apple Cider and the smell of Fog/Mist!

6. What tv show are you looking forward to seeing the most this Fall??
Survivor for sure!  Trying to remind myself that it’s now on Wednesday night!  Can’t wait for the premiere on September 15th! 

7. Personal Shopper or Personal Chef?
Personal shopper hands down!  I love to shop and hate to cook!

8. What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of "Fall"?
Halloween!  But also cooler days, leaves changing colors and crunching under your feet.  One of my favorite times of the year!

[FYI: if the song in my title is stuck in your head and you can’t place the musical….it’s from Rogers and Hammerstein’s 1951 hit, The King and I, another fantastic musical!]

Triplet Love!

They were asked to go sit by the front door so we could go outside to play.  I was shocked when I walked around the corner to actually see them SITTING by the door!  Happy at that!  It’s a miracle I tell ya!
