Satruday's Top Five Laughs

Another week has come and gone. I really cannot believe how fast the days go by!

5. *Logan pulling Charlie's high chair closer to his* "I gonna has sum of you hot dogs, kay?"

4. Charlie took a step here and there this week. Once she realizes what she is doing, her eyes glaze over and she squeals. Drama Queen !

3. Dominic has had a sassy mouth just about every single morning. Then when he comes home from school he says he is sorry, he was just in a bad mood because he did not sleep enough. Today I laughed at him and advised him how he was asleep before 9 last night! Kids man....

2. Logan climbed onto the Baby Einstein jumperoo and fell backwards. His bum landed in the middle with his feet straight up in the air. He continued to play with his legos as if he meant to do it. Then asked for "Halp! I cant get out!" when he wanted up.

1. *Logan has my purse on his arm, a home made lego gun in the other hand and is pretending to open the front door* "Bye Mama. Have a good day. Miss me." "Logan, where are you going? I hope you have a good day too buddy." "I goin out." *Giggles then runs over to me* "Mama, I NEED a talk a you." "What do you need to talk to me about?" "My bweakfast. Libby eat it all gone."   This kid, he kills me with his imagination and his conversations!

We are off to the History Museum tomorrow since it is going to be cooler and rainy. Then we have lot more spring cleaning to do. Cleaning up and getting rid of stuff that we may still have packed from moving 2 years ago, heh.

To The Finish Line

Gary and I have decided to take up running. We are starting a couch to 5k next week. I am excited and completely nervous! I have never in my life been a runner. I played softball and tennis. Mother nature decided that I should have big boobs be well endowed and that has kept me from even trying it. That was until a few friends of mine started it and did not get black eyes, heh.

We bought 2 jogging strollers off of Craigslist. I downloaded the app to my phone. I bought a good sports bra. We have running clothes and shoes. Now all we need to do is GO FOR IT!

I plan to start either on Sunday or Monday. We both can push a stroller and Dominic can run beside us with the dog. It will be a family event. The family who runs together, stays together. Or something like that!

I hope to loose pounds, get in shape and actually help my back in the process. The better the shape I am in, the less likely it will be that I will need to have surgery again soon. I am hoping we get the handle on it quickly and that it does not KILL us me in the process.

Wish us luck! We need all the cheerleaders we can get.

A night out with Mama's


A night out with friends can be all you need to turn around a funk that you have been in.

I have written before about having found some awesome twitter/mommy bloggers that have become IRL friends. We united again for a Mommy night out without our kids. It was a much needed night out. To talk. To laugh. To share stories. Above is a picture of Amy, Steph, Dina, Stef and yours truly during our dinner. Yummy, fun, relaxing, laughing till my sides hurt...Dinner!

These girls are pretty awesome. We met at Saga for a hibachi dinner. Then headed out to the parking lot to chat for a bit. And by for a bit, I mean, we talked for over an HOUR AND A HALF! We saw a couple families enter the restaurant and then return to their cars. One couple even commented on how we had been standing there before they went in for dinner, haha! 

We always have a great time with our kids or without!
