Grand plans

I had grand plans of getting so much done this weekend....and unfortunately didn't accomplish any of it!

I did however, have a really good weekend.  We spent the day with friends yesterday at a birthday party.  We were surrounded by happy, positive people and great food and fun.  The girls were e.x.h.a.u.s.t.e.d when we got home!.  Lilah was in bed by 6:30 last night and slept until 7:30 this morning. 

Now it's Monday morning, and the start of a new but busy week.  We bought a new car on Friday and we have some running around to do before we pick it up Wednesday.  I have cake class Thursday and have to make a fruit cake before class.  This is all mixed in with Eve's school, Lilah going to daycare, me going to work, Doug on shift work and trying to maintain some sort of order when it comes to laundry and keeping the house clean.  Oh, and making sure everyone is fed and has lunches everyday.  Gosh, i'm tired thinking about the week already!

On another note, i'm doing the Relay for Life walk this Saturday.  I'm pretty stoked about it because I've wanted to do this walk for a long time.  I'm walking Saturday afternoon, and am booked to walk for an hour but will likely walk longer. 

So, back to the title and my grand plans....stay tuned to see what they were.  Pictures and a tutorial will be posted soon!

I feel guilty everyday
I feel guilty when I wake up
I feel guilty when I drive to work
I feel guilty when I drop the girls off at Daycare/School
I feel guilty when I eat my lunch
I feel guilty when I drive home from work
I feel guilty when I cook dinner
I feel guilty when I put the girls to bed
I feel guilty when I get into bed at night

The guilt stares back at me each and every day from the time their feet touch the floor until they go to sleep at night. 

Basically, I feel guilty 24/7.......why do I feel guilty you might be asking???

This is why:

I took my 2 pretty, precious, and perfect girls away from these smiling faces.  These happy faces looking back at us in these photos are of my family.  They miss us and love us so much. 

The guilt haunts me.....will it ever stop invading my life?

I have a confession to make......

I LOVE my TV shows and follow alot of them!.  I couldn't live without my PVR and being able to record everything. 

These are some of my faves right now:

And of course theres probably about 10 plus or so other TV shows I follow!. 

What are your faves?????

Saturday Evening

I took the kids to the park after dinner Saturday evening.  We didn't stay long because it started raining and it was getting quite cold!.  It's great having the park right out our back gate!

I decided to try out a self portrait photo session so I could test my editing skills with Picasa. I've recently downloaded Picasa and haven't really played around with it much. I just tuned a few settings and came up with this!. I think I need more practice!!!

Happy Friday!

It's Friday...oh how I LOVE Fridays :)

It's my day off...and I get to spend it with my little Lilah lulu pop.  We really enjoy these days together.  Hubs is home today too until 1 pm, so it's been a great morning together.  He's working afternoons today so i'm already planning my relaxing night on the couch watching all the shows I have recorded.  He He

We don't have much on this weekend other than a birthday party.  Other than that - nothing much is going on with us. 

I'll leave you with some pictures of Lilah eating her brekky this morning.....can you say MESSY???!!!

We headed to the park last night to enjoy the beautiful weather we've been having. 
It's been over 20 degrees and sunny. 

I think Lilahs top may be getting a little too snug?!?!.

School girl fears have come....Eve's in School now!

Her first day went well and when I asked her what she did, she replied with "nothing"!!!!!!!!.  Then I asked her if she had a good day and she said it was "boring"!!!.  I told her she has 13 plus more years of school so she better start liking it!!

Eve's off every Wednesday for the first 5 weeks.  She goes to school from 9am until 3:30 pm.  So hard to believe my little girl is 5 and in school!.

Busy weekend

It's been a very busy weekend thus far.  We've been to two 30th birthday parties for a few friends.  Being at 30th's is a bit of a realization that I too will hit 30 soon!.

The girls were up very late Friday night and boy did I pay for it today!.  They were both so miserable and moody!.  I got them to bed at a reasonable time tonight (8:30 pm), so lets hope they're both refreshed and happy tomorrow (fingers crossed).  Doug's been working afternoons so he hasn't been home at bedtime - lucky him!

On another note - I got  my Tupperware Order today and can't wait to organize my pantry!. I have another pantry set coming next week!.  I'll take some before and after pictures.  Gosh, Tupperware makes me so happy!!.  A girl can never have too much Tupperware!

Eve's 5!!!!

Can you believe Eve's 5?!?!?!?...that's what I keep asking everyone.  I just can't believe it. 

We had a party for her on Sunday and it turned out great.  She had a blast with her friends.  Today is her actual birthday so i'll make a special dinner and an ice cream cake. 

 Eve's sitting in her special Birthday Girl chair!

I LOVE this picture of Lilah.  How cute is she?!

A Smooze will fix it

We had an accident.....

Lilah got a fat lip......

Ofcourse, she refused to let me put ice on her swollen lip - so mommy got creative and gave her an ice cream/popsicle. 

The popsicle made her happy and took the tears away!
