Have you see it?

My mind...have you seen it? If so I'd like it back. I mean I have taxes and school work to do. A brain would be nice (one that works would be a bonus). I mean seriously. Wanna know what I've gotten myself in to?

Okay so what happened was....

I've been needing beautiful bedding for my room. Nothing..I mean NOTHING fits what I see in my head. I am also impaitent. SOOOOOOO.....

I went to JoAnn's today and got a lot of savings (my code for spent a lot but hey it was on sale so it's all good). I bought beautiful fabric and well I HOPE I'm able to turn it into a beautiful bedroom. Wish me luck. I might need to be locked up after this...

Ahh so today I am doing my stool (it's a camel saddle from Iraq that my cat has destroyed the fabric of) and my curtain ala'Nester (read pins and a glue gun...LOL).

Next on the agenda is 2 Euro Shams, 2 Shams and a Comforter. I still have to buy myself a sheet set and a bed skirt (I'm not THAT crazy).

Evil... I tell you she is evil...

So Princess woke up with a cold on Monday....

So I've been feeling the itchy in my throat for a couple of days. Last night Chef treated us to Jack in the Box (new here and we've never had it before) and he was a dear and got me a Strawberry milkshake.

I let the boys have a sip before me and Princess had one after them. Then it was mine. So the boys asked

"Sorry I'm sick guys. I can't share cause I don't want you getting sick."

Princess: "I'm sick so *I* can have some more!" *GRINS*

UGH (So that is why she shared her she could steal my milkshake.)

So cute and tiny....

So I've been wanting a set of Ikea children's plates and bowls. They look so cute and colorful online and would be PERFECT for daycare. Unfortunally I don't have an Ikea nearby (or even in this state) so I have to wait for my friend Sara to go to Europe or ask my May 04 mommy friend (she works there - LOVE IT) to grab me some (shoot their $2.00 a set not bad). I don't do well with waiting....(a fault of mine - I can admit that). Well lucky ducky I found someone selling a set of plates and bowls on craigslist for $3.00. Off I sent Chef to do my bidding (okay I begged him to run to the other side of town for them...LOL).

OMG they are SO TINY. Like I didn't realize (which I would of if I thought for a moment and actually read the measurements or took a sec to realize that Ikea would have EUROPEAN items (they have smaller stuff man - hence why they are skinney and I am fat (another post)))). LOL. Okay so like I said - they are TINY. Too cute but still so tiny. Hmmmm will this work I thought to myself? Well maybe for daycare but not for my kids. (like the bowl will hold 5 honeycombs and well my son's are almost 10 and 8 - -yeah okay not working for them)

So I'm thinking this will help the daycare kids to portion control and not waste a ton of food (they plate themselves) and it's - well it's too CUTE to not use. LOL

Here I took a pic.

Okay in that pic is a SMALL roll and a half of an apple on that plate...see TINY! LOL The bowl is holding a 1/2 cup of lettuce...LOL. (That's a cup from Tupperware not Ikea - I'm slightly wondering about the actual size of the matching Ikea cups but I'll have to wait...LOL)

Isn't it CUTE though? LOL I love JUST LOVE the vibrant colors though. I have green, orange, yellow, blue, teal and pink.

I'm thinking I need more but we'll see. I have a shout out to my May mommy and just waiting to see if she is comfortable with shipping to me (Ikea doesn't sell them online - they SHOW THEM but don't sell them online - why????) or have to wait for Sara to leave the country and get me some. LOL

**just a side note - CO will be getting an Ikea in 09-10....sometime...LOL.

The Interview

Elise over at FairyFlutters was needing people to interview. I was needing a blog post. WIN WIN

Here is the interview:

1) Tell me how you met and fell in love w/ Chef.

We met in 1996, Sheppard AFB, TX. I was in the Air Force and lived in the dorms. He lived on the floor above me. We became friends first and hung out all the time...along with the yahoo's that lived around us. Chef was pretty persistant. I broke up with my long distance BF and all of a sudden Chef was all about being with me (read - we slept together (I'm such a whore...LOL)). I said I wasn't ready and I wasn't looking for a new boyfriend. He sure was persistant though and wouldn't EVER leave me alone. LOL he was always there for me and always so sweet and nice (what happened man...LOL). I couldn't help but fall in love with him. (He was a tad stalkerish...LOL) We married in 1997 before I headed off to Saudi for a short 4 mths. The rest they say is history.

2) When was the last time you saw the ocean? Describe how you felt when you were sinking your toes into the sand? If you've never been to ocean, you can substitute a lake. :P

When we were in Turkey we went to a lovely resort and it was right off of the Mediterranean Sea. It was beautiful and the boys had a blast. Really when I was "sinking my toes in the sand" I was a tad peeved....LOL. It sure was prettier then it felt. Now when we were in NM at the Bottomless Lakes (near Roswell) they had a small sandy beach portion and I LOVED to wiggle my toes in it. The kids all had a blast and I really enjoyed our time together there. Princess was trying to bury my feet.

3) If you could hop on a plane tomorrow and go anywhere (all by yourself) for one weekend, where would you go and why?

I would go to see one of my friends. Goodness I wouldn't be able to decide who though. Stacy - I would LOVE to spend some time with. Bonnie - I haven't seen in 8 yrs. Amy - We're friends online but have never met IRL. Coley - I had a BLAST with her that last time we were together. Sonya - she is in Guam so a weekend wouldn't be enough. SO many more....can we just all meet on a cruise ship????

4) What was the last book you read? What was your lasting impression after finishing it? (If you haven't read a book, insert movie!)

Oh goodness you just HAD to go there didn't you. I am currently re reading the Twilight series (New Moon to be specific) and at the same time reading The Host (same author). I really like how the Twilight books pull you in (even if your not into vampires - which I wasn't). I NEVER read books more then once for the enjoyment of it. Even now I am thinking and feeling things I might not of the first time around. I really enjoy them. I have read some of the excerpt from Edwards POV (here) and I can't wait for the day that Stephenie finishes it.

5) You have found $500 in your purse and you have no idea how it got there or why, how would you spend it?

I would do something fun with the kids. Pick up some new games for the DS's or Leapster or a new Wii game for all of us. We'd go out to eat and somewhere fun. The kids need some more clothes so we'd go on a shopping trip. Sounds boring huh??? I can't help it. Seeing them happy and looking good makes me happy. :-) I wouldn't mind a new pair of shoes though. LOL

The things she says....

might get me in to trouble. LOL Okay not really.

Princess was home from preschool for 2wks. During which time I still had my daycare children here. I'd often hear her mediating and or reminding other children of the rules. Which was fine as long as she said it nicely and wasn't being ugly. There were a few times she'd get angry and yell but I'd remind her that we don't do that. Anyways fast forward....

Yesterday she went back to preschool.

The kids were in one area and she started to raise her voice in frustration at another little girl. Ms Wonderful walked up to her and said "Now, Princess, do we yell?"

Princess: "No, I'm sorry, I can only do that at my mommy's house."

Um, excuse me? I never said you can yell. LOL Heffer.

The Sleepover

So Princess and *Z* have been trying to have a sleepover for months now. Finally it was Sara and Paulo's Anniversary so I said that she needed to drop the girl's off for the night (yes I am "that" friend - the awesome know it. LOL)

Needless to say that Princess and *Z* were excited beyond belief and couldn't wait for Saturday to get here. When I told Princess that *Z* and *z* were on their way over she said "TONIGHT!" LOL

div>Here are our adventures in pictures. (I love how pictures seem to tell the story for me)

They were all great. I woke up on Sunday to 3 little girl's giggles. It was cute. Considering it was my birthday it wasn't annoying either. LOL They left with *Z* saying "Princess has to sleep over tonight!" Um not yet....LOL.
