Playing Catch Up

You may be wondering where I've been...I will catch you all up as best I can. Above is a picture of the Canadian Kitchen Queens. I got this idea from Tara over at Jimmy Choos and Tennis Shoes. This was our second event and we had a blast! It's so nice to have a group of ladies get together and eat, laugh and share life experiences! I can't wait for next months - it is our Summer Lovin' BBQ.


On another more scary and sad note a week ago yesterday my hubby had a t i a(mini stroke) that had the kids and I calling 911, holding him down and waiting for the ambulance. It was the scariest 20 minutes of our lives (it took that long for him to be himself again) but a severe headache and other symptoms prompted the ER doctor to call it a t i a and admit him. He stayed in the hospital from then until Saturday morning. While there he quit smoking, we were educated HUGE on diabetes, stroke, blood pressure and chloesteral. We have changed our how eating style and it has bee quite ok. He misses his Pepsi but we have comprimised he can have a 1/2 can IF he exercises which he does. We bought bikes and have been bike riding. I have discovered muscles I haven't used in a long long time.

Anyhow, that's it for now. I just noticed the time and it is time to get ready for work and make lunches.

My Bad

I just realized it is Thursday and I forgot last weeks Freeing Friday. Well, I guess you will have to wait until tomorrow to see what I am freeing.

I had one of "those" weeks. The kind I dread. I know that three days this week I looked like crap which in turn made me feel like crap. It is true a little make up and hair done does wonder to the mental state. I was never much of a make up person but even the basics make me feel good. But enough of that on to some good.

Ms. K and Princess Chloe won a photo shoot and they are such beautiful girls! That is them up above. Aren't they beautiful?

I won't be spending Saturday night with my girl because our Kitchen Queens girls meet. I cannot wait. I need this night to regroup and have some girl talk.

Plus my Mom is coming for the night and I love spending time with her. It took a long time for that to happen. While I wish we had this relationship my whole life I completely relish in what we have. You can't change that past but the future is a different story. Besides, my Mom is pretty cool and I like being with her.

I know this was a mish mash of everything but it's Thursday and it's what I got!

Big Hair & Tutu's

I spent the better part of this morning making a tutu for Princess Chloe's photo shoot on Thursday. She is going to look adorable. I posted a picture of the finished product. However, I am going to research it and make another larger one for future dress up sessions. She is such a girlie girl. I brought her a pink fairy costume and she loved it. She was carrying it around and talking to it.

I have had a few down days but I am working hard to not let it get to me. Today I was playing with my hair and ended up with big hair. Flashback to the 80's! I wore it like that all day and no one said a word. I liked it.

That's all for today folks!

Little Labors Of Love

When I was a little girl my parents bought this little table and chair set. Through the years it has been used numerous times as the "kids" table at my Mom's house to my cousins, my own kids and now for my Grand daughter Princess Chloe. A few weeks ago my parents brought it to my house so I can start the traditions here. My daughter Ms.K really wanted my set brought to her house. I squashed that idea rather quick.

Friday evening my husband and I were resale shopping and I found a small table and chair set. Vintage! For $3.99. But it needed work so my youngest son S-Man and I got to work last night and got 'er dun!

There are before and after pics and it looks so great! I can't wait to bring it over tomorrow night. Princess Chloe is going to love it!
