Aloha Friday

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they 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.
We have been LOVING our slushie makin' machine. Seriously the best $20 I've ever spent!!! Jake's favorite flavor is Cotton Candy and My favorite is Cherry. Let's face it.....Jaise will eat anything you put in front of her!!!!
What is your favorite slushie flavor?

Random Tuesday Thoughts

1. I do enjoy the outside. The sun and the sand that is. Yes, it is true I grew up on a farm and I can have fun goin' muddin' with the best of them.
However, I do NOT enjoy being cold, being eaten by mosquitoes and sleeping on a hard ground!!!! BUT I did sleep outside in a tent last night.
You might be a redneck if you camp out in your front yard!!!
Seriously, that is the best way. I get to pee in my own bathroom and in the morning I get to drink my coffee and check my email. Momma is happy and the kids are happy!!
2. Hubby had to work all weekend so we celebrated the 4th last night with fireworks and our bonfire.
3. VERY excited that Jaise is potty trained!!!! I mean, come on, she has been changing her own diaper for nearly 6 months, wasn't it time!!!???? Do you know how happy I am to walk by the diaper aisle in the store? hmmmm, what can I spend that money on?
4. Have to clean out the tahoe this week. Our lease is up and it's going back. Don't get me wrong, we love the room and how it rides and the kids are pretty big fans of the dvd player. However, GM can take their monthly payment right on back when they take the tahoe. It's time to shave the monthly budget and that will do it in a big way!!!! The State of MI just layed off 100 troopers and there is talk of 100-200 more this next fiscal year. That is soooo NOT funny!!!! I wonder if Michigan starts handing out IOU's instead of paychecks like California, if our mortgage company will then take and IOU from us? You know, like, when we get it you will get it?

Monday Meme 5 Questions

I searched high and low for a Monday Meme that I thought was fun and that I could answer and I found one!!! Woo hooo!!!! Problem is that I can't find where I found it so I can't link up to it which means I won't have NEAR as many comments today which is a bummer because I LOVE comments!!!! Anyway, here it goes.....
1. What are your most treasured possessions?
Hands down, my hubby and my kids. Don't get me wrong, I really like my computer, coffee, lip gloss, tahoe and jewelry BUT I could live without those things. If you took my hubby or kids from me, that would be another story.
2. What was the best material gift you ever received?
It's a tie between my a)wedding ring b)anniversary ring and c)my necklace from Kristen's Custom Creations.
3. If you could only wear one outfit for the rest of your life, what would it be?
My Victoria Secret Pink Sweats and my comfiest grey t-shirt ever and flip flops for sure.
4. If a world-famous photographer were going to take your portrait, where would you be? What would be around you or in your hands? Would there be other beings in the portrait? What would a world-famous photographer shoot to capture your image?
This is soooo easy. I would be at a sandy beach. I would be holding my daughter's hand. My hubby, son and daughter would be in the photo as well. We would have some photos sitting down as a family and then we would have some walking hand and hand down the beach. That would be perfect!!!
5. Where do you feel most at home?
My house.....I'm not sure where else I would feel most at home at....
