I need one of these!! I have been practicing on my mom's old machine from 1975 (I am not exaggerating, she bought it in 1975) and I am ready for a new one. One that is much more user friendly. I have sooooo many projects I want to start.
The BFF is having a little miss thing and she is due September 27th. So I need to get sewing ASAP! We need burp cloths, head bands, blankets, bibs and lots more. She has two boys already, so EVERYTHING must be cute, girlie and sassy.
So yeah, I need one.
Anyone know of one that is good for a beginner? And I mean, BEGINNER.
I don't need all the fancy shmancy gadgets. I just need the basics.
User friendly is a good phrase in my world.
Another thing, this guy S C A R E S me. I mean, really scares me. I am all for freedom of expression, but sometimes, those expressions scare me. Is that ok to say? =) He can for sure sing though, it's just, his nail polish and eyeliner, scares me!

WW Wednesday

Oh snap!! Mama lost 3lbs this week. I didn't even follow WW very strict, remember my Disney trip? So you can see why I didn't expect to lose any.
Also, today, my mom let me borrow her Wii Fit and I get to use it for 3 weeks while she is recovering. (she had her baby making parts removed)
That means, HOPEFULLY next week, we might see another 3lbs gone. At this pace, I could be at my goal weight in a few months. Oh and don't even keep reading hoping I will mention what my goal weight is, because I am not saying! At least not until I reach it. I don't want you all to die of shock at how much I MUST weigh right now. I need you around for moral support. So once I hit my goal, you will be the first to know. Then instead of passing out from shock, you can fill me with compliments like, "girl, you did not look like you weighed that much!"

Disneyland aka Heaven

Ahh!! The screaming kids, people cutting you off, getting your heels run over by cheap walmart strollers, waiting in 45 minute lines, paying $34.50 for a churro and soda.......what's not to love about Disney!?!? It's the Happiest Place On Earth people!! Things that would make you go POSTAL in everyday life, are ok behind the magical gates.
Another great thing, breakfast with the stars.
This is just another day in the life of little boy.
Here is Little Boy, loving him some Minnie.
Here is Little Boy about to poop his pants!!
Minnie shouldn't have jumped to 3rd base so quick.

Look at his face, enough said.

Oh, and Chip. Little boy tried to hit him in the head. Sorry Chip! (or are you Dale?)

Cutest thing ever! Yes, that is Hubster, riding the Carousel with Little Boy.
I was a proud mama.

Why Guys Shouldn't Babysit

So.......my dad was babysitting. He did a great job. I would just like to address a few obvious no-no's.

First, lets start with giving Little Boy a beer. Remember this??
Anyone else smell a relapse?
And if he does relapse, we prefer it be with GOOD beer.
Like this.....

Second, don't make him use a box as a superhero mask.

Give him a real mask, where he can breathe.

Like this.......

That's all I am saying.

I Can Lose The Weight, But You're Still Ugly

I am in love with Mojito Maven. I. Love. Her. Her blog is so sassy and so much fun. I also love that she is on the Weight Watchers train! She and Blue Eyed Bride started Weight Watchers Wednesdays. It's just a way to keep track of your progress and share your journey. So I am jumping aboard! That's right, you know I love me a good fit train. So every Wednesday, tune in to watch my fat rolls turn into sexy abs of steal! (ok, I dream right?)

You Can't Make This Stuff Up

Officer: Good Afternoon Ma'am, do you know why I pulled you over?

Me: Not really

Officer: Are you aware that you are driving in the Carpool Lane?

Me: Very aware, how scary would it be if I said no? (I laughed, he didn't)

Officer: Ma'am, this lane is dedicated for people with two or more passengers, and it's very obvious you are traveling alone.

Me: The sign says that those rules only apply between certain hours.

Officer: What sign? (then he points to the sign posted right where we were and says.....) That sign right there says two or more passengers or motorcycles

Me: Yes, I can read that sign. But the sign back there, states times.

Officer: Again, Ma'am, which sign? One we've already passed?

Me: Yes, that would be why I said the sign back there.

Officer: I see that you just bought this car, so I am assuming you don't have your registration yet, but do you have a license.

Me: You assumed right, here is my license. (hand him my license) Hubster just bought me this car, do you like?

Officer: Very nice Ma'am, sit tight, I will be right back.

Me: I will be waiting.

(comes back to my car)
Officer: Ok, now I will let you off this time, just next time be aware that this lane is reserved.

Me: Reserved for who? I am not driving in it during the rush hour times! You have to let me off, I didn't do anything wrong.

Officer: Technically I could give you a ticket for insubordination.

Me: (laughing) Insubordination? I am not being insubordinate, I am simply pleading my case. Hubster would kill me if I got a ticket, especially if he had to take time off work to go to the courthouse and watch me plead my case to the judge and prove you wrong.

Officer: Ma'am, have a good day and drive safely.

And that is ANOTHER example of why I am no longer driving in the Carpool lane, EVER.

Gone But Not Forgotten

I have not abandoned my blog. I have been sooooo busy. With what you say? Well, sit back and relax and enjoy the picture OVERLOAD!!

First, a good friend of mine has been planning her big day. So we had a Bridal Shower, Bachelorette Party and finally the Wedding!
For her bachelorette party, we hung out at the Red Rock Casino and just laid by the pool all day and bowled all night. You can't beat their cosmic bowling, $12.50 a person and $9 pitchers of beer! My kind of night!

Me and the Bride To Be

No tan lines for this bride, she needed some sunscreen.

Later that night at bowling, this is the famous Lacey Ellis (bride) face.

I do, You do, We do!

Little Boy rocking his tie.
Of course he won't look at the camera because he is staring at the bag of animal crackers I am holding in my lap.

The Family.
The tie is gone, he got crazy on the dance floor.

The next day we had a BBQ to go to for one my most favorite people ever!! Her hubby is turning the big 30!! So went over there for some good food and good friends.

Here she is with her birthday hubby!

Her and I.
Apparently, she has the same syndrome as the hubster. For some reason they HAVE to make goofy faces in every picture I take of them.

Good shot! Finally. She is my favorite.

Yes, he is in a planter, in the ground.
He is a boy, what can I say. Before I took this picture, he was sitting in the dirt, dumping dirt on his head.

Another family shot.

And that ladies and gents, is what I have been up to. I will now be getting back to my regular sassy blogging.
