Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.
In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.
This weeks question is based on curiosity. I always LOVED opening my stocking on Christmas morning. My parents always got the coolest things for us to open.
What kind of things do you buy for stocking stuffers?
To check out more questions visit An Island Life.

FTF (Fat Ticker Friday)

Okay, I feel like this week was a good week. I am only down 1/2 of a pound BUT I got into a routine. I did 3.5 miles 5 times this week!!!!! Just so you know....I don't EVER do that much!!!!! My thighs are sore but that is a good thing.....that means something is working!!!! Check out Baby Tea Leaves for more updates.

Tuesday Tidbits....

So, yesterday, I was being a good dubby and jumped on my gazelle (airwalker, whatever you want to call it) and I was watching the View while I was completing my 3.5 miles. It's the holidays and it seems like every show is giving away stuff. You know what they gave away? A flippin' $2500 Bowflex TreadClimber to everyone in the audience!!!!!!!
As if that wasn't enough to ruin my "mood".........I finished up my 3.5 miles and when I got off to go get my water, I could smell a not so fun aroma.....familiar but not so fun. Yes, while I was sweating the pounds away, my little J, who is potty training, decided that the kitchen floor looked like a better place to take a dump than the toilet!!!!!!!!!!!! Am I raising animals?
Oh, but on a good turns out that the wedding I photographed is going to be featured in the newspaper!!!! They called to ask my permission to use my photos. Maybe momma can get a new pair of shoes (or camera lens or bottle of wine) with the business that it throws my way.

Not Me Monday

It's time for another week of me admitting what I would never in a million years do and thanks to My Charming Kids for hosting.
I did not spend hours on Saturday wrapping presents for my kids from Santa, place them in a very discreet place in our basement and then find out that my kids had gone into the basement and found their stocking stuffers!!!!! I absolutely did not then lie to them and say that Santa needed to drop them off a little early this year and I told him I would keep an eye on them for him!!!!!
I did not put a diaper on little J to attend Daddy's Christmas party so that I did not have to take her to the bathroom 25 times while we were there. I have waited too long for her to finally potty train to do something like that. (FYI: she did great and even though she had a diaper on, she still told me about 12 times that she had to go potty, I took her, lined the toilet with paper and held her there each time and she went!!!! Diaper was still dry when we got home!!!)
Check out more "Not Me's" at My Charming Kids and enjoy knowing that others struggled through their week just as you did.

Weekly Winners

It's time for another edition of Weekly Winners hosted by Sarcastic Mom. Post pictures from the past week that YOU took and enjoy!!!!
First, we have Jaise and her favorite cousin in the whole wide world....."Bock" (that is Brock, for those of you who don't quite understand Jaise's language). We decided to make a gingerbread train while Brock was visiting us for a couple of hours and Jaise wanted NOTHING to do with the train......she just wanted stare/love on Brock.

This is the finished product........and yes, that is Brock eyeing the leftover frosting. That boy can eat!!!!

Look at the AMAZING detail!!!! I know, you are wish you could have such a great decoration in your house!!!

And these are little J's painted toe nails. She is just like her momma.....has to paint her toenails.

Great Gift Idea
