It's what you didn't do...

We were leaving Pre-K graduation today and heading on over to Old Chicago for lunch when I see this behind me in my mirror.
Just Great! Just what I need.

Officer gets to my car and I open my door.

Me: Sorry, my window doesn't open.
Him: That's okay.
Me: What did I do?
Him: It's not what you did, it's what you didn't do.
Me: What didn't I do?
Him: Seat belt.
Me: I had my seat belt on.
Him: He doesn't. (Pointing to my dh in the passenger seat).
Him: Do you have your license and insurance.
Me: hand it over to him.
Him: Do you have ID Sir?
Me: Hand it over to him.
He leaves and comes back with the ticket.
Him: Sir, here is your citation for not wearing your seat belt. You don't have to go to court. It's $25 and won't affect your license.
Rich: (Sarcastically) Slow Day?
Him: It's just what we are out doing.

So, as I pull up to leave he is still behind me. We are at a light. All of a sudden he is gone. I'm like where did he go, he was just there. He JUMPED the median flipped on his lights and was stopping someone else before I was even 3 feet away.

What a joke!

Tea Please!

Mother's Day Tea Party!




Last week we went to McDonald's and the Happy Meal toy was a Kidz Bop CD. This CD kept her busy for awhile so I figured I should get her the rest since she seemed to like it so much. I went on ebay and ordered the complete set of Kidz Bop CD's.
She loves them!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day. I had a wonderful day, I hope you did as well!
I woke up to some jumping on the bed to wake me up yells of "Happy Mother's Day". It was great! Once I was awake, Natalie brought me my gifts one by one. I am usually not surprised. I usually pick out what I want. This year I picked out some things but was also surprised with some more! Daddy took Natalie shopping at Target yesterday while I was out getting my hair done. I picked the scale and the videos and Natalie picked and made the rest! I got a scale, 3 workout videos, an 8x10 picture frame, a planner that I can put my own picture as the cover, a picture of Natalie, a rose, a working mothers prayer, cards, and hugs!
Mother's Day 2009

I have to tell you too that all of my presents were wrapped in clear plastic. When they were at Target, Daddy let Natalie pick the rolled wrapping paper. She really loved the SHINY SILVER wrapping paper so Daddy let her get it. . Little did she or Daddy know that it was clear wrapping paper that you put in bags or something. They are so cute!

She also loves the Music Cards. Doesn't matter the occasion. My card said Happy Birthday and Daddy didn't notice until they got home. So they just crossed out Birthday and added Mother's Day! lol I love them. Oh and the card sang, "That's the way..uh huh uh huh I like it, uh huh uh huh! :) :)

When I finally got out of bed we got ready for Church. After Church, Daddy made us some breakfast of spam and eggs. lol Then my MIL came over and brought me some flowers and lots of food! She brought salad, bread. fruit, lasagna, candy, cookies, and some other stuff too. Then we went to the hospital to see my Sister In Law, Jeannie. She is having gallbladder problems and so Amber is staying with my MIL and FIL. Anyhow, we went to visit so that she could see Amber on Mother's Day. After that, we came home and ate lasagna. (It was so good too!) Now we are just lounging around. Later Natalie and I are going to have a tea party.

You know you had a bad day at the hair salon when:

1. You are there for 5 hours.
2. You say don't cut my hair, I am letting it grow and she cuts it anyway.
3. She says come back next week and I will give you a free deep treatment.
4. You are paying and she gives you a discount.
5. She gives you a bag full of creamy stuff to put on your hair.
6. While you are paying, she says "My recommendation for your hair is to NEVER get a perm and color" AFTER she just gave you a perm and a color.

Hit and Run!


This morning on the way to school I was stopped at a light waiting to turn and this guy runs right into the back of my car! No big deal right. I put my flashers on and turn the car and he makes sure to turn behind me to make the light. I pull into the nearest parking lot and HE-KEEPS-GOING!! I quickly get back onto the road behind him but it's a one lane and there are now 4-5 cars behind him and in front of me. The one in front of me thinks I am a jerk and decides to drive 1 mph ON PURPOSE! I understand they don't know what happened but still I am trying to follow this guy and you are going 1 mph! I finally get behind him and he pulls into OUR SCHOOL! Imagine that! He pulls up to let his kid out and I jump out of my car and I knock on his window. He rolls it down and I say, "You hit my car, were you even going to stop?" and he yells, "Well was there any damage." (NOT THE POINT). I say, "I don't know yet, I was trying to follow you to get your license plate number for leaving." AND-HE-LEFT-AGAIN!!! I scramble to get his license plate and park my car to take Natalie in and to call the cops to file a Hit and Run. (I forgot my cell phone this morning...never again will that happen!) The cop finally gets there and I have no idea what make the car is. I just know it's a white car driven by an older gentleman. I guess when I wrote down the license plate, I had a letter instead of a number. I think they still found it though. I CANNOT believe that this guy didn't stop and left twice all while taking his child to a CATHOLIC school. Un-freaking-believable!

Beach Party!

Natalie has been looking forward to her Beach Party in her class all week. They were supposed to bring in a beach towel today along with their show and tell that is something that has to do with the ocean. Today was the day. Unfortunately, she is sick for the second day in a row and couldn't go to school again. :( She was so sad. I told her we would have our own beach party today instead.


Not your typical beach foods though. Natalie had Chicken Noodle soup, pickles, peanut butter crackers, & water. I had tuna salad, pickles, and a dt. coke.

Later after nap time, maybe I will take her swimming to try out her new the bathtub!

I think she's enjoying herself!
