I Spy A Red Sticker

Yesterday was not my favorite day. It sucked to be honest. I needed to get the kids out of the house and I needed to shake off my bad attitude. So, we went to Target. It's kind of inappropriate how much we go there, but whatever, that store is amazing. We get a bag of $1.00 popcorn, maybe a Starbucks,walk around, read books, play in the toys, maybe pick up a few things, soak up the free air conditioning. As far as my kids are concerned, it's almost better than Disneyland.
We did our usual lap around the store, and ended in the toys. Shocker.
Now the rule is we look we don't buy. Cry, beg,scream,kick, doesn't matter I'm not buying another toy to pick up a hundred times a day.
I'm a mean mom I know. Anyways we played with the babies, pushed every button on every Fisher Price toy. We headed to the boy section and ba-ba-da-da..... We saw this

The dragon castle that Gavin wanted for his Birthday. Every time we see this he tells me how much he wanted it and how sad he was that he didn't get it. Well, mama and Daddy had a hard time shelling out $50, and it's a good thing because we bought it yesterday on clearance for $12.47!!!!! That right. I took one look at that little red clearance sticker and threw that bad boy in the back of my cart. I thought, no way it went from $49.99 to $12.47, but I'll take it. Even if it was a mistake, they were gonna have to sell it to me at that price anyways.
Mama we get to take that HOME???? Like to my room where I can play with it forever??

Who's a mean Mom now?

I was now on a mission to find more little red clearance stickers. We were on a mission. Gavin found walkie talkies for $3.24, originally $12.99. Sofia scored a 15 piece Olivia dress up set for $3.94 (o.p. $15.99) and and a Strawberry Shortcake doll for $3.94 (o.p. $15.00)

I got $94.00 worth of toys for $23.60!!!!!!!!!
My Grandma would be so proud.

And it was money well spent. My babes have been in their room playing nice since yesterday afternoon
Thanks Target!!!!

I'm wide awake. Why you ask? The Husband is out of town and I don't know how to sleep in this stupid big bed all by myself. I don't know how people do it with partners that travel a lot, I can't even get thru one night. And it doesn't help that my dog is on high alert and every noise she hears she gets restless because she thinks he's home, which in turn freaks me out. Yes, i still believe in the boogy man.
The two of us are so pathetic laying here watching re runs of Friends and Will & Grace, tossing and turning. I'm half tempted to go get my sleeping kids and make them sleep in my bed.

Dolla Dolla Bills

Me: Gavin please stop Sitting on the side of the blow up pool

Gavin: why mom???? ( my favorite, yeah right, question of all time btw)

Me: because it will pop and I don't have any more money to buy a new one

Gavin: I do. I have 15 bucks

Me: Oh really? Where did you get 15 bucks son?

Gavin: from the cash store Mom. I walked right in and they gave me 15 bucks. So if the pool pops it's ok Mom, I'll buy a new one.

I think I was told by my 4 year old.

What We've Been up To

 I organized the dress up clothes and the babes are having a ton of fun dressing Daddy up.

 I bought a couple $15 book cases, moved all of our furniture around, and made myself a fake built-in. LOL. I'm workin' with what  I got 

 Made snow cones and some bomb diggity Smore's Bar Cookies. 
 this happened..... and I love that it did. All the cool kids skateboard in their chonies
 I played photographer for the day and shot these two love birds' engagement photos. 
 The Husband and I celebrated our 7 year wedding anniversary. It was lovely. He even took me to the beach we were married at and asked me to marry him all over again. 

We took our little fish to the beach 

 ate ice cream sandwiches in just our shades

And the BIGGEST news of all, this girl is POTTY TRAINED!!!! I wasn't even really trying she just kind of did it by herself. We have been diaper free for three days. Except for a trip to Ikea but she stayed dry the whole trip. We officially are out of the baby stage...... and my heart is a little sad about it. But I am BEYOND proud of my girl and her booty looks so stinkin cute in her big girl chonies.

My Love,

Seven years ago you walked down the aisle to me and said, "I Do." Thank you for that.
From that day on, I became the luckiest man on earth. You have been a shoulder to cry on, a friend to talk to, a mother to our children, and the most amazing and beautiful wife to me. Thank you!
You also have the biggest heart I know. You always see and want the best in people. I have learned so much from you in the way you live your life, raise our children, and love me. YOU ARE GODS GREATEST GIFT. Because without you, I would not have the life I have now. And I know over the years we have had some ups and downs, but what normal, married couple doesn't. 
We have had some good times, some bad times, some sad times, and some happy times. And through it all, I have come to love you more and more each year, each month, each week, and each day. 
So Happy Anniversary to my wife, my love, my everything. 
To seven more years!

I love you always and forever, 

Your Husband

Don't Bother Us We're Swimming

If the sun is out, this is where you will find my children. 
I'm actually starting to think they are growing fins. 
An I should probably admit that on more than one occasion I have laid in a raft with my book durning nap time. 
Gotta love $30 blow up pools to beat the heat around here

Happy Weekend Friends, we're gonna go jump back in!

What I Love Today

I'm sorry but how CUTE is this! I want one real bad

This heat isn't doing my chubby little hands any favors and my wedding ring is workin hard for the money right now. I LOVE the look of these stacked gold rings in its place for the summer. 

And lets get serious for a second..... how RIDICULOUS cute would these little Crew Cut shoes look on Sissy Girl.

Heat Wave


It's smokin hot out and I don't think my kids have had real clothes on in over than five days. 

4th of July Weekend in Pics

"You look like the 4th of July 
Makes me want a hot dog real bad"

This weekend was so much fun! We spent ALL day in the pool with family on Saturday, where my babes found their inner fish. By then end of the day they were both jumping in the deep end. Monday we were trashed from all the outside fun and laid around the house, went and grabbed some yummy breakfast, napped, then BBQ with the Guererro Girls and fireworks. 

It was the perfect mellow holiday weekend. 
Hope you all had fun!
