Basketball....over and out.....

We had our last basketball games today. Since both of my kids played at the same exact time I decided to NOT take any photos. I'm trying to be a fair mom. I don't want one of them to grow up and say to me "Remember the game you DIDN'T come to....but you went to my sisters game and took lots of photos ?" So I just took no photos at all!!! Granted I coach Lexi's team and HAD to be there....I wish I had a clone so I could of been in both places!!!

Wolfie had a great season with his team!!! Out of 10 games (1 bye week) they won 6 games and lost 4 games. A great group of boys working as a team and looking like they were really having fun out on the court!! Also I have to give a virtual high 5 to the coach's. They are 2 really cool high school kids and they did a great job with the boys this season!!! Thanks guys for your support and taking the time with coaching!!!!

Lexi's team had a blast. I co-coached with am amazing coach SJ DENHAM. I also learned a lot and realize that I should not wear flip flops to practice!! The girls on the team were great, spirited and lots of fun to be around. The parents were great and very supportive to us as coaches.

I love basketball season!!! I love seeing how the kids progress as players and really work together as a team!!! Lots of fun!!! Now we move onto Track & Field for Wolfie and for Lexi? Not sure.....she's still got girl scouts to finish out for the year.....then it will be summer....can't wait for that!!!

Someone's been to Mardi Gras!!!!

Lucy's got some explaining to do......

For the Ladies.......

Alright ladies, it's that time of year once again!!! I think we need to be reminded of a few things. So my sisters, PLEASE, raise your big toes and repeat after me below....

The Open Toed Shoe Pledge
As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules when wearing sandals and other open-toe shoes:

I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the sides and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps.

I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free.
I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.

I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow.

I will shave the hairs off my big toe.

I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker, mother, sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there.

If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it.

I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr. Scholl's if my feet need him.

I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizes. This is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down with me as I fall and break my ankle.

I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell and begin to look like Vienna sausages.

I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look good.

I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they are actually flip and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.

I will promise to go to my local nail salon at least once per season and have a real pedicure (they are about $35 and worth EVERY penny).

I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.

Don't keep this to yourself - pass it on to other sisters.

Yes more basketball........

So there's only one more week left of basketball. Lexi's been playing and having fun. She's been trying to get her hands on the ball more and just has the sweetest smile when she's running down the court.

What a game it was for Wolfie yesterday. He played his BFF's team and it was a AWESOME game and BoBo's team won by one point.........Justin was on FIRE and was playing the hardest I have ever seen him play. Taking it to the HOOP!!!! the pic aboove is EFLOW and BOBO. Great great game boi's!!!! I will make a mental note to NOT take Wolfie to mexican food for lunch before a game. He had the worst tummy ache for the first 2 quarters............

Nice job boys!!!!! Oh yeah and don't forget to check out FLICKR for more weekend fun!!!!

My gurl is turning 7 !!!!!!!!

My little sweetie Lexi Lu turned 7 today. I took popsicles to her school for a warm weather snack and we went out to dinner tonight with her cousins and Aunt and Uncle.

She's a lover of cats, dogs, stuffed animals, her brother, her dad the rock star, pizza, her mom, all her pets, Doritos, her teacher, friends, swimming, her cousins, sleeping in the top bunk now, saving lost dogs, jump rope and lots more!!!
She's a sweet little girl and will still reach out for my hand. She loves to go on adventures and ride her bike. She loves to door bell ditch her friends and can laugh and cry at the drop of a hat. She's got "discriminating" taste when it comes to food and clothes.

She's a joy to be around even when she sassy and wants to be the boss. (Don't know where she got that from?) She's quiet until you get to know her and then watch out!!!!!

Happy Birthday Lexi LU!!!! Mommie loves you to the moon and back!!!

Anyone have a noodle to hold onto?

Okay I'm drowning over here. I admit it I'm having a hard time keeping my head above the water lately. Things are falling by the wayside, I'm overbooking where my kids go after school, forgetting appointments, barely getting the laundry done, forgetting to write an essay on why my kids teacher ROCKS!, to deliver the girl scout cookies, to call the phone company again and find out why our phone is still JACKED UP and I'm sure many more....

I know your thinking "Well she's got time to FLICKR & BLOG" well I guess it's been my escape lately. I'm ready for summer and the nice weather. I can't wait to SPRING FORWARD this weekend and get some longer nights. I hate to sound like my mom but winters are killing me. I just want to feel the sun (even if it's the fake sun from the tanning booth) on my face and know that everything is going to be alright.

Between working 30 hours a week (HEY going from being your own boss and working at home this is a big change), PTO at kids school, girl scouts, sports, house, laundry and everything else....yeah I'm a bit overwhemed. Throw in the mommy guilt that is always there and JOHNNY WE HAVE WINNER!!!! There I said it...said what most moms are thinking. I love my life and would not change with anyone else for a minute. I love and appreciate everything and everyone who's in it. I just need to gripe for a second. I know I have a great husband that would help in a minute if I asked. I truly appreciate that about him.......

Okay so if you have read my "spewage" this far thanks. I'm okay....don't call in the calvary. Just know that I'm getting my tan on very soon and if you have a swim noodle just throw it in my direction.

Happy Anniversary To Us

Okay so the time really flies....we got married 14 years ago today March 6, 1993. We normally know how long we have been together, because we got together when my sister was preggo with our niece and well...she just turned 18.....Rob is wonderful in many ways.....he lets me be me, gives me space, makes sure I don't spend too much money, does the dishes and cooks, take the kids places, tried to keep me in check with myself and many other things. He's one of the sweetest guys and rarely has a bad thing to say about anyone or anybody. Even though he's bringing back the man-butt-pack-purse (for those of you who know Rob you know what I mean) and is a bit of a neat freak......he's still the guy I married all those years ago.....Happy Anniversary Honey!!!!

I know that you all want to see the retro photos of us. You know when Rob had a mullet and wore Rude Dog shorts and drive that hot VW Bug.....and well when I had HUGE glasses and wore clothes that were not all black in color....come on...you know you want to see all that right? Okay I will work on getting some of those vintage pics up.....we all want a good laugh Right?
