Weekend Recap

Like everyone else we spent most of the weekend outside.  The weather was fabulous - cooler than normal temperatures here in the desert so we have been enjoying it!  Mr. ESPN took Friday off and painted our guest bedroom (grayish blue) and our master bedroom (greenish khaki).  I assisted with our bedroom and quickly remembered why painting isn't my most favorite project - I love the results but it is hard work and we have very high ceilings. It turned out well and lucky for me Mr. ESPN enjoys doing it.  

Saturday my friend Brooke came over to help me put together this cake for my neighbor's 8th birthday:
Can you tell what it is???

Someone wanted to pose with the masterpiece
Brooke and the girls with our model - 
Chatty's I-Touch.   

As you can tell we started making up our own applications.  It took us awhile to make the first few.  No we didn't have an Angry Birds icon as I forgot to make brown fondant!

Between baking and painting I think I am ready for another three day weekend so I can relax!  Good thing we are headed to the beach in less than two weeks!  We can't wait.  Between now and then - work, soccer and more soccer!

Conversations With Bia

Bia is sounding more and more like me with her comments lately ..
  • "Momma - Momma - Moooommmmaaaa!" at the top of her lungs until I answer her in the morning.
  • "I organized the toothpaste drawer." 
  • "No I need to take the toys out of my drawer and organize it before I go to bed"
  • "Momma is it church day? After church can we take a nap together in your bed?"

Thursday Thoughts

Just some random thoughts this week ...
  • Mr. ESPN did lovely impressions of our children this morning ... "Blah, blah, blah, blah" and "STOP DOING THAT, I DO IT MYSELF."  It doesn't take much to entertain us at 5:30 a.m.
  • Chatty told me this morning she wished she had something Mexican to wear ... I told her we're not Mexican, go eat a burrito.
  • Bia's school had the cutest Mother's Day presentation yesterday.  Cute songs and dancing.  I left work early to see Bia in action.  Guess what - she was the ONLY child who did not perform!  But she did eat several cookies during the after party.
  • Friday is Muffins for Moms and Donuts for Dads at Chatty's school.  Since I left work early yesterday for Bia's performance no show, I told Mr. ESPN it's his turn.
  • Chatty learned about atoms, neutrons, protons, etc. the other week in school.  She was looking at a bottle of vitamins and asked if the picture on the front was atoms.  Good grief I won't be able to help her with her homework after 2nd grade at this rate.
  • Bia asked if it was Bud Light Time when we got home one day.  It was 6:00 p.m. on a Friday .. so indeed it was (yeah not helping with the Mother of the Year Award).
  • HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to everyone!  My mom and I are spending Saturday together ... some lunch and a little retail therapy!!
