Michael's Birthday Plans....

Michael's Birthday is right around the corner and Im scrambling around trying to make this a good one for him! He will be seven years old! I am really big on birthday parties, it may be that I didnt have any growing up, and it is something I may or may not have missed out on when I was younger, who knows, but if it is something I missed out on, I do not want Michael to miss out on the celebration of his birth and him coming into this world and changing my life for the better. This year I think I am going to do another pool party theme. This time it will be at our apartment complex, which will be of no cost to us which is a plus! I did find this very awesome place called G2U.com and it basically is a truck, or trailer type thing that comes to you and they open it up and the kids can go inside and play video games, inside they have hooked up PS3 systems, or Xbox I am not sure which, and outside opens up and they can play Wii outside too, so it has the ability to serve many kids at one time. The rental of this will be the same amount it would be to hold it at some indoor kids party place so I am cool with that and the price. I have had some questions on how the kids can do both, swim and play games, easy! The games will be there only for 1 hour in time, and the kids can either play or swim, and the ones who want to swim first will simply have to wait until they are dry to go inside and play or can play on the Wii's on the outside. Or if some kids who are not into video games want they can swim instead.
I am planning on buying wrist bands to help the G2U staff identify who is with the party and who is not, because I do not want to pay for wandering kids to play the games I rented for Michael's party.
Food options were going to be either Pizza or cookout foods, and I am leaning more towards the cookout foods!
The pool has a part where they are tables and a grill that we can use to cook the food on.
I am going to be serving hotdogs and hamburgers which I will pick up at Sam's club. Also with the help of Michael's grandmother some YUMMY Mac and Cheese that she makes! I will also have chips and drinks to go along with the burgers and hotdogs.
I think this will be an awesome party and I hope that all my planning will work out in the end and everyone will have a wonderful time!
I have already (yes, I already sent out) the evites so that everyone can save the date because with it being summer and a few days from the start of a new school year, I want people to plan ahead to come so that Michael has a great 7th birthday!

our First 5k :)



Yes, Michael and I ran (I mean walked, and sorta ran some) our first 5k ever! well mine, I am sure Michael has done it before back home with my sister Jackie or something. It was fun and I am trying to plan for my next one for sure! Michael had made it which is what I was afraid of him whining and wanting to stop a lot.
We were joined by friends, Brandi, and her son D, and Jamie and her little girl Julia :)


The kids got to rub elbows with CHUCK E CHEESE!


Then got to clown around with some clowns :)
I am so proud of everyone for making it and not stopping, the kids did have rests, mainly to wait for us to catch up LOL
After the race, we went with our friend Brandi and her lil man D to have some Ihop! We had a nice little breakfeast (actually mine was big but worth it!)

Soon after we ate, the boys decided that they wanted to head to the park. So we did, until the ice cream man came, so we then headed to Braum's so the moms could enjoy a LOW calories ice cream :)
While eating cream the talk of swimming came up, and yes we went swimming, it was the perfect excuse to buy a new swim suit for me :) hahaha
Swimming our other friends Beth, her husband and their kids, met us there :)
Brandie, Michael, D and I ended up needing to leave because in the words of Michael, "Mommy I am cold and hungry and I feel like I am poor" So off we went to have some dinner at Souper Salad, which I have never been there before and I liked it! I got the most awesome salad, some pizza, and some mac n cheese, I attempted to do a baked potatoe, but I didnt like the taste of it.


I was BEAT by the time I got home, and crashed very soon after getting Michael from his cousin's house. Legs hurt LOL but not bad as I thought they would.

Look at our New Picture! I love it!

I just have to share this! While out at the Taste of Addison they had a booth doing old timey pics! I never have had this done before and wanted to try it! It was only $20! Check it out! I love it and Michael looks priceless in it!

Mother's Day :)

Hoping all the mommas out there had a nice one, I did and didnt! Of course I was doing house work alll day with no help what so ever! I cooked dinner, washed clothes, mopped, vacumed the carpets and some more stuff...I was exhausted! But dinner was GREAT! I got a phone! Not sure if it was planned to be given to me on Mother's day or it just happened that way, but I love my new phone! It is purple! (sorry the pic is a little blurry!)
I got wonderful things from Michael that he made! And a painted pot with a flower growAdd Imageing in it! It is currently sitting on my desk and I love it!





My cooked dinner was fantastic! I am glad I opted to make my own dinner at home, vs going out and spending (wasting) money.
I sent my wonderful mommy a basket of flowers and perfume which she should be getting shortly!
I couldnt send it when I wanted to because the perfume place had to order more since it is no longer being made, it is discontinued, but I dont think that my mom will mind it is late since she IS getting it and should be there soon!
We had Mike's mom stop by and pick up her gift and she shared the wonderful dinner I made :)
She said it was good.
I got to bed early! which was great! I loved it!

A Day full of FUN!

Saturday we went to the Butterfly Festival it was a lot of fun! The butterflies just landed on you and the boys thought that was super cool!








Later on we met up with our friends Brandie and her son D, and headed to the Taste of Addison, it was fun! We managed to get a small work out in with all the walking around we did as well as eat a healthy meal :) YAY US! The boys had a blast which is always a good thing! We did have some cranky pants when their hunger hit but shortly after they were fed and bellies full they were happy as can be :)



They had fun going around to all the vendors and collecting freebies! They even partook in a pickle contest of whose cruch was louder! All the boys got to get a Vlasic Pickle guy stuffed animal.

It got a bit hot, and not to mention a lil humid so the boys took a dip in the fountains! Yay for Addison fountains! They are so much fun!








The boys also rode the ferris wheel and they loved it! I was a bit scared with them way up top when it stopped but all was good and they all listened very well!

Shortly before we left Michael and I took an old timey picture it was so fun! I have never done one before and always wanted to and I got my chance! YAY ME!

Happy Birthday to My friend Beth!



A friend of mine celebrated her birthday last night and I hope she had a great time, it was the celebration of her birthday as well as a House party for clariol...All girls, we had a great time, esp with the weather being CRAZY last night! It was storming bad! While some dyed each other's hair, applied make -up and polished nails, or just hung out and chillaxed and talked with the gals! It was a great time! Great company! GREAT CAKE! :)

Happy Birthday Beth! Hope you had a wonderful time!






Thursday we celebrated Mike's 31st Birthday!

Thursday was Mike's Birthday which was celebrated, initially it was just Mike, me and Michael here, While Mike was in the bathroom, Michael and I got to work setting up his cake and gift.

Mike was just about to come out and Michael told him he wasnt allowed, so Mike went on his computer in the bedroom.

As I am shoving the 3 and the 1 shaped candles onto a TINY cake which keep slipping off Michael asks how we will light the cake, I have no clue we have no lighters in the house.

So Michael (cleaver Michael) goes to the room and yells "Daddy do you have a lighter?" Mike of course answers that he doesnt, so Michael proceeds to yell to me "oh great how are we supposed to light the candles now mommy?"

Shhhhhhhh I motion to him, so then finally daddy comes out to open his gifts and loved them, low and behold a knock at the door, GRANDMA ANGIE! Here to wish Mike a Happy Birthday! When another knock comes at the door UNCLE JOHN here to wish Mike a Happy Birthday!

I promise it wasnt planned at all, so then we get a lighter, lite the candles and sing to daddy!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIKE!
