Rock on! rock on.

I've been sitting on this post for a couple of days, ONLY because of blogger. I think it's on crack. I uploaded the photos and saved them b/c I had to do something (what I can't remember). Then yesterday when i came back to finish it i couldn't get into blogger unless i changed to the new blogger so I decided to change but then when i got to the last step nothing happened soo I closed down and figured today I would switch and then do my post. But today when I pulled up my blog it's now saying my blog has NOT been selected to switch to the new one.. WHAT THE??? ok so I'm over that b/c really who likes change? Now on to my post....

A couple of days ago i got a package at first i was like hmmm a late b-day present? or a RAOK? No it was neither.. much to my surprise that is. a while ago and I mean a WHILE! I entered a contest at make me and won, and this past week i finally got it! LOL it cracks me up. I thought she'd just forgotten or it'd gotten lost in the mail and I wasn't worried about it. Her note said that she would look at it and say "I need to send this" so she finally did. It's really cool. I took a pix of me wearing it so you can see it. Thank you so much Hilari!
And it's still winter! Rock on! I've been wearing it a lot around the house and outside to get the bub off the bus.. LOL love it!
Speaking of winter, since we finally have some snow on the ground the other day i took the girls out to play. I bundled them up and by the time they were done they looked like the kid from the christmas story. LOL Well a momma has to keep her kiddies warm! I snapped some pix of them b/c they were so cute. They made snow angles and tried a snow man but it wasn't the right kind of snow so we ran around
kicking snow at each other and the beady swung on the swings. But it was super cold so we lasted maybe 20 min before we came in and made Hot Chocolate. That is real HC not the kind in a package! it was awesome and voted "the best HC you've ever made" according to the bub! LOL kids crack me up! we haven't made it out again b/c it was melting yesterday, but today surprise it's snowing again. crazy weather! well I'd better post this before blogger changes it's mind again.. sigh

Today you get to see my face

no don't run away. i just thought i would share my hair cut with ya'll. i went last week and used up the rest of my gift card to Boscovs. it's longer in the front and shorter in the back. I'm so pickey when i get my hair cut b/c usually the people i go to don't listen to me. i've only lived with my hair 28 years you'd think i know that it poofs when you blow dry it so that i look like a trapazoid head. I also know that when you cut it it's going to dry shorter b/c it's naturally curly, air dry is the best way as long as there's some no frizz serum in it... Anyways this lady i went to was great her name was Mary! she rocked. i didn't have a pix of what i wanted just an idea. I saw it on Sarah Jessica Parker in a rerun of Sex and the City. i don't get to do too much with my hair being naturally curly and not knowing or wanting to blow dry it straight or iron it every monrning. but i think it was the 5th season she had shorter hair like mine actually a bit shorter in the back. I think when i go back i'll have Mary trim it up shorter for me. anyways so i just described the hair cut to Mary and she rocked it out! i was pumped. i love it. i tried to take a side pix and a back pix and the front of course. LOL it's a silly pix. So i have some fuschia high lights i'm thinking about adding to my hair... what do ya'll think?
I do want to show you proof that we actually do get snow here in PA. that was taken about 3:30 or so on monday. the snow then kinda melted and today it's snowing again. I love snow it looks so fresh and clean! like a new beginning.
This past week i borrowed a book called "the Yada Yada Prayer group" by neta jackson, from the church library. It is an awesome book i devoured it. and it's been a while since i've made time to read a fictional book and boy this book just spoke to me. I'm going to read it again and write down all the bible references that is in there and just really learn how to pray again. if you haven't read this book please pick it up. ok well i am going to go i'll TTYL

Don't eat the pink icing!

So i've been meaning to post here but i've been down right distracted. you see for christmas i got my DH an Xbox 360. (i'm a totally awesome wife i know!) You can see the surprise on his face as he opens it. He didn't think he'd be getting one for a while. SO to the reason i'm distracted. we got the game Viva Pinata HOLY COW that game is addicting. i can sit down and then 5 hours later i realize i need to stop playing to feed the kids and take care of the house. Yes i'm a slacker. so i've had to restrict my gaming for the time being until i can "control" my "urge" to play non stop.
So last friday was my b-day. WHOO HOO. well not really as you get older they just aren't that much fun, Or are they? Thursday, when i came home from work, i got a surprise from my Sister, Jess. SHE ROCKS! just look at what she got me. She knew i was wanting to spin some on my drop spindle but i didn't want to buy any roaving until i really learned so i didn't mess it up. I know, how am i supposed to learn if i don't practice? well she sent me a book called Hich Whorling and some roaving 5 different colors and she said that it was good roaving for learning. I was so pumped to get such an awesome present. I didn't think i was going to be getting anything b/c my husband said i needed to go and GET my present.. UGH! so i went out and didn't look for myself. But I used my gift card to get an awesome purse that was 50% off. you can't beat that! and then i went home all sad and depressed that i wouldn't have a great birthday from my husband and kids.
So when i got up on friday i found a cake (the eating kind) and a card from my Dh. saying "forget about the past you can't change it and forget about your present b/c this is it" yeah i know i was a little upset but i didn't want to ruin anything so i said thanks for the cake and the card. Then he pulled out a small wrapped present. So i ripped off the wraping and found an Ipod Shuffel! I was sooo happy. and i should've known better like my DH would forget to get me something or make me get it for myself. He's really good at getting presents but he does like to trick me. so i've been loving this little thing. and Little is right is's about the size of a postage stamp just a little longer. I've put all my music on it and i still have half the memory to use up. it's awesome. Go DH you ROCK! Also on my IT list this past week is my dear friend Kelly! She's the best she sent me a wonderful cake all made out of flowers! it's soo pretty the pix i took today so it's looking a little haggard b/c i can't get the girls to stop touching it. so all in all i had a wonderful b-day and the pain of turning a year older wasn't felt that much. LOL Thank you so much friends and family I feel so loved! Now i must go i've got a date with Clark Kent, you sexy thang.

PS sorry about the spelling i can't get blogger to spell check i'll go over it myself but sorry if i missed a lot!

crazy times

I hope all had a wonderful weekend! Here it seemed every other day we had someone sick. Through all that we managed to go to my BIL's wedding/ceremony thingy. (we won't go into my feelings about the whole thing) The bride and groom were beautiful! While there, we had our pix taken, it was like the ONLY pix on our camera from the whole day. I forgot to take more. The girls were flower girls/ fairy girls. They really loved it and were totally cute. everyone wanted to pinch their cheeks and take them home.. so to speak that is. LOL My DH was one of the groomsmen, and i just sat and watched. We had a good time.
Wednesday at work one of the head construction guys from the company across the yard came over with this little bundle of joy. He'd found it under the dumpster freezing it's little tail off, with no momma cat around at all. No one wanted to bring it home but i couldn't let it sit outside and freeze to death. so i put it in a box and brought it home praying my DH wouldn't kill me for bringing another kitten. (we already have one, remember simba?) He didn't btw as you can tell b/c i'm typing up a post. So i called and set up a visit to the vet and found out that Oreo is a girl. She's also pretty healthy and about 4 weeks old. when we first brought her home she just hid under things and slept. now more and more she's exploring and climbing and playing i'm so overjoyed! it would be hard to bring such a cute kitty home and then have to part with her. try explaining that to the kids... anyways as you can tell from the pix she's small enough to sit on my hand comfortably. her head is almost bigger than her body like a bobble head. LOL now if we could only get simba to stop trying to eat her.
