Hump day and that means....

Only a few more day until the weekend is here and it is time for Bingo and DD1's party!!  I have been busy all week with getting everything sorted for the birthday party this weekend and making sure that everyone is ready to party.
The weekend starts with bingo though and I am so ready to win me some Polish Pottery!!  Yaaahooooo!!!  The last time I played bingo I won a beautiful soup tureen and ladel and it was gorgeous of course!  This time I don't necessarily have to win...oh yeah right who am I kidding of course I want to win!! Who plays to lose after all right?!! :)  So wish me luck that I do win and then I can share pics with you all of my fabulous winnings. *grins*

Saturday there is a lot going on here but my family will be busily working to get everything set up for the party. The food has to be cooked, the tent put up, the obstacle course inflated and staked down and tables all set up. It should be a really incredible party and I can only hope that everyone has a great time..of course I really hope that DD1 has a fabulous day and feels like a true princess. I still can't believe I am going to have a teenager though...holy cow where did the years go?!! For real!!!  I remember my little angel coming to me one day asking me " mommy I can dress it nice?" I looked at her with her sweatpants and short overalls on and no shirt and said "yes sweety you look pretty and did a very good job"!  Ohh how time flies!!

Oh well I guess now I can look forward to "mom can I borrow your shirt?" which I get all the time now..ughhh!!  And Mr. M wonders why I buy so much clothes for myself...well duhhh my closet gets raided daily!!  Yupp that's right folks..can you imagine?!! Maybe you can and you deal with it too!!  Let me know if you have had this happen and if you were able to stop it or not please?!!!!!

Ok off to make dinner once the brownies are done!  Yes I do things backwards...well actually today I was in a wierd mood and made apple crisp, strawberry pie and brownies..yeah can you say lady days?!!! hehe

Weekend fun,flounders and fabulousness..

Ok so I know you all were just dying to hear about the ball right?!! Yeah I thought so!  I know some of you live vicariously through other blogs..don't deny it! I totally do it especially with those who have traveled to all the places I am still wanting to go to..ahem  help would be nice!! :)
Let me start with the ball and then I will go into the movie we saw and a few other things.
Mr. M and I were way excited to be getting dressed up and heading out on the town..ok ok so Mr. M would have been happier had he not had to wear a dang bowtie but still. What is it with men and wearing bowties?!! I do have to say though in some of our pics he does look like he is being strangled by the dang thing...ok maybe I get it now!! It didn't matter though because strangled or not we were going out and having a good time and we did!  The ball was held at the Village Pavillion here and I was amazed at how many people they were able to squeeze in that thing. Picture a large banquet room with a stage at one end and then 800 people crammed into way too few tables. Yes the seating was not so hot but what can you do right?!!  We ate elbow to elbow and didn't care. The food was alright..the food is never fantastic so not a big deal to us really. Normally we plan a McDonalds run for after the ball anyway...yupp we are cool like that!!  So the line to get into the ball was crazy long and then we stood in line so long at the bar that by the time we got up to the bar I had decided to tell the woman just give me the bottle of wine because I am so not coming back again!! I did too!  Me and my bottle and glass went through the overcrowded room to my seat and watched as every woman I passed looked at me like I was holding a pot of gold..yupp they wanted my wine..goodluck ladies!! I stood in line for 30 minutes to get that dang bottle and I was bleeding it dry..hmmpffffff!  Ok so I shared some with friends but still it was mine!! haha
After a few glasses of wine and finding out that some idiots at our table had taken it upon themselves to remove one of our couples and let their friends sit there it was a fun night just waiting to happen. Now picture sitting elbow to elbow with people you love and then people you can't stand...getting it now?!!!  Oh yes the wine was a grand idea because it made some of the night bearable!!  Oh what it must be like to be a 40 something woman who acts like a teenager still in highschool. She was mean and hateful to anyone she deemed inappropriately dressed and once she had her food she was down right lude and gross.  So yes I had a good time at the ball once I had enough wine in me to be able to ignore the unclassed female sitting across from me.  It was definitely something I will never forget and we were more then happy to take our leave and head home.
I do have to say though even with dealing with crazy women and messed up seating we had fun just being together and doing something different.  I do have to say that I was quite taken with how Mr. M looked all snazzied up in his uniform...HOTTTT!  Oh yeah I completely remembered why I married a man in uniform that night!  *giggles*

Handsome right?!!  Yeah I know I am lucky!! Too bad the dang photographer kept telling me to tilt my head so it looked like I had a dang double chin...nice right?!!  Oh well it makes my heart swell to be standing next to such a hottie!!!  MMmmhmmmmmm

So that was our ball..good, bad and a little ugly to wrap it all up!  On Sunday we met up with a friend and her kids and we watched The Sorcerer's Apprentice. It was a good movie and we couldn't stop laughing at how the girls were awe struck from the time it started they barely moved. I think any movie that doesn't have animation and can keep DD2's attention is fabulous in my book!  I enjoyed it as well.  I would totally reccomend it to anyone with kids or even not with did have a small love story to it as well.

After the movie we headed over to have dinner at a local restaurant. In the time we have been here it has gone from bad to worse to better to fabulous and now we seem to be back to loser status and we will not be freqenting that place any more.  I hate to see places go down like that but seriously the service is so bad that it makes even the fabulous food not so grand truly is a shame!!

So our weekend basically was filled with fun, good food, bad food, bad service, crazy women, ugliness and fabulousness all rolled into one!  Let's just say that by last night I was completely mentally exhausted!!

I do have to say though to any of you who are planning to go to a ball anytime NOT forget to bring your camera!! *grins*

Have a great day everyone and I will see you tomorrow for the fabulous post it note Tuesday!!

Ciao for now!

5 Question Friday!!

Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy it's Friday and I am so glad I made it through the week with no injuries, all kids still alive and well, and Mr. M was fed,bathed and put to bed on time all week!! Baahahaaaaaaaa!!! Ok so I have been slacking in a few departments lately and one of them is of course my so sorry ya'll!!!  It happens though and whatcha gonna do ya know?!!  Oops sorry that Southern drawl comes out every now and then and I just have to let er rip!! There she is again!! :)

So today is once again one of my favorite days in bloggerville and that is 5 Question Friday with  Mama M!! You all know how fabulous I think she is so why don't you head on over to her blog and find out for yourselves..for real!!!  I might say that a lot today since all day all I heard from Princess Cutsey was "for real"  Yes that is her made up name...who would name their child that..for real?!!!!  :)  Told ya!!

1. If you could speak with a different accent, what would it be (i.e Australian, Scottish)?
Ohhh this one is so friggin easy for me to say and even Mr. M could answer this one for me without even blinking!  I would looooove to have an Australian accent...mmmmmmmmmmm!!!  Can you seriously tell me that hearing an Australian man talk doesn't send those good chills down your spine?!! For real?!!!!  Mr. M is constantly changing my gps from Aussie male to English..bleck!! Who wants to hear their own accent..duhhh!!! :)

2. Can you fall asleep anywhere? (i.e floor, couch, deck)
Nope! I am a total bed woman!  Not only that but seriously take my pillow away and I tend to get a weeee bit testy!! Ask Mr. M..for real!!!!

3. Do you use public restrooms? If so, do you sit on the toilet?
Ok for real?!!! This is a corny question and not exactly one I would like to read everyone answers on..for real!!  I do use public restrooms.. I mean when you gotta go you gotta go mister...right?!!  I do try to squat if possible without touching the seat but have you ever been to a European restroom? Some of the toilets are so dang high it is near impossible to not touch them..sighhhh!! That my dears is why I carry my own toilet paper,hand sanitizer and we wipes with me at all times!! Jealous aren't ya now?!!

4. If you were stuck in an elevator for 24 hours, what celebrity would you most want to be stuck with?
Ok this one I actually have to think about..hmmmmm...errrrrrr...uhhhhhhh...gosh. If I get 24 hours with any celebrity I would honestly want to talk to Suzie Orman!! Mr. M can't stand her and I think it is hilarious considering when I first heard of her and started paying attention to what she was saying I dug us out of mounds of debt and put us up with a savings which until then we didn't know what a savings was!!  Yupp I would like to get 24 hours of advice from her!! For real!!

5. Where did you & your significant other go on your 1st date?
Ohhhh this one is so daggon easy!! It may have been 16 years ago but I remember it completely!  Mr. M picked me up and took me to Olive Garden(my choice to see if he was a cheapskate...he wasn't in case you were wondering) and then we went to a movie(again my choosing to see if we would watch a chic flick with me..again he passed)! Once the movie was over I told him to take me home and if he were lucky I would call him hte next day( I didn't once again to see how serious he was about me)! Yes I was a little mean back then but by the time I met him I had had way too many bad experiences with boyfriends and I was calling all the shots from then on out!!  Seeeeee  it totally worked out for me too!! haha
Ok so there you have it! Now listen to me...because I am so smart and fabulous ya know...and head on over and get your own quesitons done!!

Busy weekend and I will be back next week to update you all with pics of the ball!! Oh btw yes my wrap came in and even with a free bag for the inconvenience of the shipping!! I love free stuff!! hehe

Have a blessed weekend everyone!

Ciao for now!

Coffee and the mail...

So I have been this week doing all my final preparations for the ball as well as working on the birthday party. On Sunday I was invited to a coffee with the spouses club! My first thought was "coffee heck yeah" then my second thought was "meeting new people double heck yeah"! You all know how much I enjoy my coffee and combine that with some great conversation and the opportunity to meet new people and I am totally stoked!!

So this morning I will have to skip the gym and get ready for the coffee instead. A little sacrifice but in my opinion well worth it! Once I am done with the coffee then I will have to run over and check the mail. I am still waiting on my wrap for the ball and seeing an email saying I had a package last night got me all excited that maybe it actually made it here in time..please please please be my wrap!! Our weather has been all over the place lately. Cold in the morning and warming up to hot by dinner time. It is insane to try and dress for this kind of weather because I am either freezing in the morning or super hot by afternoon and needing to change clothes. My laundry duties surely do not like this weather either.

Yesterday morning I took a little trip with a good friend to the French deli in town and we had breakfast. Is there anything any better then a chocolate croissant and a latte for breakfast?!! I think not!!  It was a nice time and we ventured down to the Italian store to check out some wine and then to Aldi to stock up on some produce and other goodies. It was a short day for the kids in school so the rest of the day was running errands with kids...not exactly my pick!  I so love my mommy time where I get to do all I need to do by myself without having to spend an extra 20 minutes waiting on kids to get ready or listening to "mommy can I have" all day. I do love my mommy time. Can you tell?!! :)

So after I drop of DD2 at school then it will be get ready time and then coffee time for me!! Yayyyy for coffee!! I swear it is what keeps me sane some days. Cross your fingers for me that the mail will deliver my wrap and I will not freeze my buns off at the ball this weekend!!!

Have a fabulous day everyone and be sure to come back tomorrow for more fabulous questions from one of my favorite bloggers..Mama M!!!!  Have I told you she is fabulous lately?!!!  Well then come back tomorrow and check her out for yourself.

Ciao for now!

Ciao for now!

A day in the life of....

So I know my blogging has been a little crazy lately so let me begin by saying...SORRY!!!!!   Things here have really sped up lately and honestly I am not sure who opened up the flood gates but could you possibly close them?!! I mean just for maybe a week so I can have time to think about everything going on.  Yupp you got it folks my life is busy and my kids lives are busy and Mr. M apparently has received an easier job now so that he is not busy!! What happened?!!  I used to lunch with the girls and go shopping and go to the gym and really enjoy being just me during the day. Lately though it has been meeting after meeting and email after email and occasionally I get someone who says "hey let's do lunch" and don't get me wrong because I literally leap out of my seat when those calls come just for a chance to get the heck off this laptop and be me again even if just for an hour or so.

Ok so I still go to the gym every morning...come on now I have to fit into this fabulous dress that I had made for the ball coming up right?!!  Ohhhh have I not told you all about the ball coming up this weekend?!! Where are my manners?  Yes we are going to a ball this weekend and I can't tell you how excited I am for a night out to strut my stuff in a beautiful dress and pretend that there are not 100 emails waiting for me at home!!
I will definitely have to share pics with all of you once it is over..I mean who doesn't want to see my dress?!! It's fabulous and it's red and it's gorgeous and I totally bought it only because it was a designer knock off of a dress that Sarah Jessica Parker wore...LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE HERRRRR!!!!  Don't judge me seriously I love everything about her. She has fashion sense that for some reason I was so not born with or taught or whatever the case is. She is cute, and funny and down to earth and of course had the absolute best job ever of being Carrie on Sex in the City!!  I would kill to be her!!  Ok so I am a little obsessed.....whoopsie!! It happens! Shhhhhhh!

So busy with getting ready for the ball, then DD1's birthday party the next weekend. In between all that has been planning a Halloween party, planning fundraisers for DES, planning the Holiday party for DES and of course PTSA and somehow PTA slipped in there as well.  Don't get me wrong I love being a part of things and I absolutely love love love planning parties but why is it that everything happens all at the same time?!! 
OMG did I mention that DD1's party will be her 13th birthday party?!!!  squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee   I am sooooo excited and trying to make this party the best one she has ever had!!  I for one believe that turning 13 is a HUGE deal for any kid and especially for my daughter!  Her birthday last year was kind of a bust since we had family issues going on and so this year needs to be the best darn party I have ever planned for her and it will!!  No doubt in my mind that her friends will be talking about this party for weeks!!  That being said I may just have to collapse after it is all done from pure, straight up exhaustion!!! *sighhhhhhhhhhhhhh*

All in all it will be a blast and I promise to share all the pics and gory details of all the goings on in the next few weeks.  I did get an invite to a coffee that I am excited to go to as well. I will totally tell you everything about it and who and where when I find out that it is ok to do so. *grins*  Are you curious yet?!!!  I would love to tell you but then I might have to hunt you down and kill ya so let's just go with I will tell you all about it later!! K?!!  Good!

Ok so back to emails that I have noticed coming in by the dozens in the just the little time that I have been typing this up...ughhhhh!!!  I hope you all have a fabulous day and that your week has something that will make you smile!

Ciao for now!

5 Question Friday!!

Listen.....can you hear that?!!   It's Friday calling!!!  Woohooooo!! I love those calls!! *grins*

So today it is time for the fabulous Mama M to shine on her day of questions!!!  If you all haven't gone over to check her out...WTH is your problem?!!  Ok ok sorry but seriously ya'll she is fabulous...funny, cute, smart, I mean for real she is raising 5 kids and still has time to blog!! Isn't that like worth an award or something?!!  I totally think it is!

1. What is the first nightmare you remember?
Ok seriously?!!  I mean I can't even remember what I had for lunch yesterday let alone my first nightmare!!  I would probably say it had something to do with watching the movie Jaws....squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!  Ok so I am not sure if you all know this but I am deathly afraid of sharks and can  not even watch that movie or else I lose all credibility with anyone watching it with me. I turn to total jello and have been known to leave the room crying and screaming.. Yupp I said DEATHLY afraid ya'll!! NO joke!!

2. Even if you're not a sports fan, what's your favorite sport to play/watch?
I swear this has been an issue in my marriage for quite some time now. When Mr. M and I got married I actually liked watching football and absolutely loved watching the Superbowl!  I am not sure what happened but...maybe the every friggin Sunday football or maybe the every dang party football talk....I have lost my interest in watching football. I can hear you gasping now...I know it's unAmerican. sighhhhhhh
If I had to choose a sport that I do like watching I would have to say ice skating..I love love love to watch them!!

3. If you could pull off one piece of trendy fashion, what would you want it to be (jeggings, hats, thigh high boots, etc.)?
Ok if you have been following for a while then you have seen my blogs about how I am fashionably challenged!!  I really have no idea again what happened. When I was in school and college I was always in style and always had the "it" trends in my closet. Alas after so many years of marriage and 2 kids later I have lost my fashion eye..yes I said it!!  I have somehow moved into frumpyville and I can't find my way out.  HELP!!!!!
If I could pull off anything trendy I would love love love to have someone take me to a store and get one just one fabulous outfit that doesn't make me look like a hawaiian cupie doll!!  

4. Did you make good grades in school?
I had good grades in school until I hit college and then I figured out that the classes where I wasn't doing so well I would just drop and take again later...yupp I was a dropper in college folks!!  I have to say though I did eventually go back and finish all those classes after finding out I have a learning disability and how to fix it!!  Yeah for smart professors who believed in me and knew I wasn't dumb!!

5. What magazines do you subscribe to?
Oh lord!! Ok so this is another sore subject with Mr. M in our house. See you know how all the magazines do those holiday season things where if you subscribe then you can gift a subscription to a friend for free or really cheap?!!  Yeah well I just happen to have a lot of really nice friends who are constantly gifting me magazines. Maybe because they know I love to read them but would never actually pay for them myself. Last year I ended up with 3 subscriptions to Family Circle and had to call the company and ask them to stop sending me 3 magazines at the same time!! *grins*

Ok so that was the Friday questions!!  Did you love em?!!  Did you answer them yourself while you were reading them?  Head on over and see Mama M and get in on all the fun for yourself. All you have to do is click that button up there and get your questions on!!  Come on ya'll I will be waiting to see your answers.

I have a busy weekend planned so I will be back soon to update all of you on what has been going on and all the stuff we did!! Have a grand weekend everyone and see you when I see ya!!!

Ciao for now!

I was recently asked to review something. It's called Snapit screen capture. I have used something similar in the past and I absolutely love these things. Have you ever wanted to take a picture of your screen for any reason and not known how to?  This is the product for you!!  It is simple, easy and convenient as well.

Screen Capture Software

Click on the link and go check it out for yourself. Here is a little about it...

It is a very convenient tool for bloggers. When you write posts on your blog you need to
capture and crop images from different sources - this tool is for you.

- Supports hotkeys, auto-saving, clipboard
- Automatically copies screenshots to the clipboard
- Tracks capture history, auto-saves captured images
- Saves files in BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG and TIFF formats
- Auto-names captured images

I used to use something similar when Mr. M was deployed and we would talk on screen. It was a great way to catch a picture of him and share with the kids when they got home from school. There really are so many possiblities with things like this and I do hope some of you will check it out for yourselves.

Have a great day!

Playmobil fun park...

So it has been another busy weekend but I made sure to make some time and no applause please!! *grins*

So last weekend we made it to Playmobil fun park and it was so much fun. The girls had a blast and even Mr. M and I were loving it! It is what the name says a fun park not an amusement park so no rides just a lot of playing. It is a place where you can act like a kid and enjoy seeing your kids having a blast!

Gigantic playmobil people were all over the park! They greeted you comning into the park..freaky and so cool!!

You could sit or stand next to a knight or a pirate.

You could climb on the pirate ship and walk the plank to get off.

You could even raft along side the pirate ship and hope you didn't get taken by pirates!! Arrghhhh!

You could even climb a giant dinosaur and pretend you were a caveman.

You could be taken prisoner at the castle and get locked up..hehe!!  We had to lock up the girls it was just so much fun!

You could go into the castle and be queen or king for a day and go in dungeon even.

You could even pan for gold and jewels left behind by the pirates from days gone by.

Once you were done outside there was a whole inside play area where you could play with a pirate ship, a castle, a cottage, the knights table or the dinosaur era.  Really pretty princess castle!!

This guy was guarding the bridge to the play cute is he?!!  I really wanted to ride the horse but for some reason he would not listen to me..grrrrr!!

It was a fun time had by all and well worth the drive! If any of you have  a chance to one of these parks either in Europe or the States I highly reccommend going.

I have another busy week but will be sure to keep you all updated on everything going on in our fabulously crazy lives!!

Just a small mention...Happy Birthday to my dear little brother today..hopefully the angels are throwing him a great party!! Love and miss you!!

5 Question Friday!!

I am so happy that Friday is finally here!! I swear this week has just been one gigantic blur!!  Holy moly it went by way too fast..oh well life must go on so here goes. I will definitely update all of you on the happenings of last weekend soon including playmobil fun park..sooooooo cool!!!  A definite must do for all European livers..hint hint!! :)

Ok so it's Friday and time for fun fun fun with Mama M and her cool clan.... she probably thinks I am nuts by the way but that's ok because as nuts as I am I am also fabulously fantastic!! Total horn tootin' going on over here but that is just how happy I am so here goes...

1. Do you feel guilty spending money on yourself?
For real?!! Who doesn't?!!  I never feel guilty for buying what I call my "special groceries" stuff that everyone else in the house hates but I love love love!! Other then that every time I buy anything having to do with only me the guilt starts before I even get to the register. Yupp that's right folks I am one of those crazy women who goes around the store filling up her cart to only start dumping my guilt buys one by one until I usually end up at the register with 1 thing or sometimes nothing at all!!  Total crazy!!

2. How well do you know your neighbors?
I know my neighbors pretty well I guess. I know some of them are quiet, some are loud, some are nice, some are rude, some are young and some are old. Most of all I know that not one of them knows how to pay a bill on to pay for cleaning lady folks so get off your arses and pay me!!! Ughhhhh!!!

3. What age are you looking forward to being?
I know this is going to sound crazy but I am totally looking forward to being 50 yrs old. At that age my youngest will be off to college and no more kids to raise..woohoooo!!!!!  Let's go 50!!

4. Do you get excited when the mail comes? Why?
Heck nahhhhhhhhhh!!  You see living overseas we have basically like a p.o. box and we have to go to a different place to check our mail and then carry any packages all the way to our vehicles, drive home and then lug it all upstairs(3 stories in my case). I dream of the day I can greet the ups man at my door again..sighhhhhhhh!!!!

5. What is your earliest childhood memory?
Ok so I rememeber being around 2yrs old and riding on a big boat down the Rhein river and seeing castles and fireworks!! Wierd huh?!! Yupp my mom has never believed me that I remembered that even though it totally happened and I totally do remember it...sheeeesh!!

Ok so now it is ya'lls turn to go over and meet Mama M and her fabulous blog and get your questions on!!!
Have a grand weekend everyone and see you maybe later!

Ciao for now!

Bad blogger...bad, bad blogger!!

Ok so let's go back in time for just a many of you remember the movie "Gremlins"? Well then you will understand when I say my past weeks have been..trashed, trashed, trashed!!!  I totally loved that part!! :)
I have been so busy and swamped I really have not had time to do anything but what I had to...yupp no fun for me ya'll!  That was until yesterday when I went to a luncheon..a much needed break and I had a blast! Great people, good food and I laughed and laughed and laughed..oh yeah and won a raffle prize!! Woohoooo for me!! I never win stuff so I was totally excited!  I will take a pic and show you all later what I won.  So basically I have been busy and sorry I have been a bad blogger but  I have super pics for you today so that should make up for it right?!!!  *grins*

Ok so last weekend we decided to just get the heck out of town and headed off early one morning to go to Konstanz, Germany and Mainau Island. It was GORGEOUS!!! For real I could spend a week there...just beautiful!  Well you will see for yourself..first up is Sea life where we got to see some cool stuff..

So it was set up to look like the town above the tanks and everything in the tanks is what you would find in the Rhein river there.

This was my favorite little cute is he?!!  I just want to hug him!!!

This guy scared the batooties outta me!! Yupp we went in one of those tube things where they swim over your head and this guy came right up next to me and yes...I jumped!!!  Oyyyyy dang shark!!

How beautiful is this pic?!!!  It was so nice and relaxing just watching the boats fly by and seeing the calm of the river.

Next we headed to Mainau Island and here we are in front of the duck made of flowers.  There were so many beautiful things on this island and it truly was a fun time.

Here is the castle on the island. We lucked out and just happened to be there on a day when they were finishing up a classic car race. We got to watch everyone pass the finish line and see all the beautiful old cars!!

This was the gorgeous vineyard on the as nice as it was there was no tasting of the wine!! I know I know what were they thinking right?!! Well let's just say we had a little tasting of our own when we picked a few grapes...shut your mouth yes I did it!!  They were dang sour too!!  We did finally head over the cafe on the island and buy some of their was good.

So once we left the island we headed back home. It was a very long day that started around 5am and ended back home around 11pm. Sunday we slept in..baaahaaahaaaa yeah right!! I wish!  Daggon body clock always wakes me up early...pooey on body clocks!

Ok so I will continue with out weekend tomorrow. Hope you all enjoy the pics and I will definitely be back tomorrow with more of our weekend and more pics.
Have a fabulous day everyone!

Ciao for now!

Ok so I have been a weeee bit busy lately and haven't had time to blog. I know I know you are very disappointed with me...sighhhhhhh...I am doing the best I can so back off buster!!! :)  We had a long weekend and we made the most of our time and enjoyed every minute of it!!  One day of relaxing and getting the poor filthy sadly neglected house back in order, one day traveling out of town and exploring everything we could find, one day bowling and the last day playing at a fun park. Most of it was spent with dear friends but some of it was just us M's and we loved it all!!!  I will be telling you all about where we went and all of our adventures over this week but for now it is time for one of my favorite things in bloggerville *drumroll* Post it note Tuesday!!!!!!!
So here goes...
