I sinned

It was totally my fault.... well mine and the little pink drinks. Evil little bastard pink drinks. But you can totally see the progression of my downfall in the expression on my face in these pics. I came, I saw, I had fun and he held my hair. I'm too old for this shit.

Catch Up ;) Griswald style

 Well let's start with the last day of school here in Idaho shall we? Duchess was estatic. Princess was pissed cause she isn't ready to pack up her room which means work, lol.

My sweetie Princess. She's getting so big and making me feel so damn old. She's taller than me now and shopping in my closet. Crap. Luckily she hates to wear black so most of my cooler stuff is safe! Although my band tshirts are fair game. :(

Duchess and I went to be a captive audience for my dearest daughter's tumbling exhibition. Front door baby and we did our very best to represent the whole family. Seeing how it was just us two and most people had their entire willow tree presented at these things. We did the Aresenio Hall thing. Do you know what that was?  If not, you're not cool. Deal.

She's so dang fast and my poor camera just couldn't keep up. It was fun to watch though. My girl is growing.

Look at my gorgeous baby. All decked out and purty for her exhibition.

 Yeah I got

 So we've been playing a little softball up here. I oh so love to play me some ball.

I got to spread the love a little to some of the other girls up here. No softball teams up here though, just baseball. I rather dislike that.

My lunch date. I get to spend a lot of time with my kiddos one on one now that they are getting older. I really enjoy that. I'm strange.

Yo, I like to play. What?

My girlies at the water park. 52 degrees outside and here I sit on my fat arse relaxing in the not quite so warm sunshine. In my swimsuit.

There is one of my kids. In the freezing cold. Yuck. God bless'em, they get their climate adaptability from their father. I'm to much of a reptile for it.

 Oh and during the initial cleaning spree, I found some old pics.... I totally can't claim the poor kid can I?

Oh and check out my awesome sunburn, from the 52 degree sunshine. Freaking kidding me? This shite HURTS yo.

Since she can't have a smart phone and play "words with friends", we end up playing alot of scrabble. She's getting quite good. I'm only allowed to have three letter words when I play with her, she's mean.

 Ohhh look, I got to spend some lovely time with my super hero crush.... hello!!!!!

Check it out darlings! The final week of May in the boondocks of Idaho and lookey what I woke up to..... bastard snow!

Woohoo, my sunburn turned into a nice bronzey shade. Slightly tan for me? Okay! I'll take it over being pasty ass white all summer long.

Hey look, Studman aka Dave came home for the long weekend to a) wish me happy 3-5 even though it was late, b) help me start the major packing of our home and c) just to spoil us girls some.

See, Duchess really likes those spa pedicures he spoils her with. We love his guts.

This is the Idaho counterpart of mine. It was adult night, we played pool. Dave/I won.

Here is my stud in action. he's hawt. Yummy.

He kinda likes me still. I have no clue why, but I'm blessed. Even though he drives me crazy, I love him. He gets me. And he's hawt.

So after we packed up the entire house, we each had six outfits left. Turns out, I had nothing to go in. So between mine, Princess and Duchess's closet, I managed to piece together an outfit for our date night. Seriously took all three closets, lol.

 This is what a couple pink drinks will do for me, you see teeth in a picture.... hooker over there was more worried about whether her man was winning or not (not).

Look, my Murphy! He's my boy. It was sleeting and cold as crap this Memorial Day weekend but my boy just loves a carride.

Meanwhile, Princess was more interested in how much mud she could get between her teeth. Good night, I'm not washing those clothes!

But man, check out my packing and labeling skillz!  OCD much?

Best Fucking Birthday EVAH

Tomorrow is looking awesome.

I'll be 35.

I haven't had a cigarette in 4 hours cause I promised those people I'd quit.

Husband ain't home.

Kids are in school.

Best Fucking Day Evah, and it ain't even started.

I'm seriously considering turning my phone off and going for a long nature hike, followed by a crying spell, followed by a nap, followed by another long walk, and optional crying spell.

Blessings Fall Down...

Stupid is as....

My bright self took kids to the pool.... Forgot to put my sunscreen on. Kill me now! At least I got a ton of cool mom points yo!

Frat Party at My House, and I wasn't Invited :(

So since I took a spill, Dave the boss man decreed to the children that I wasn't allowed to go downstairs till my back was feeling better. I should have insisted. I ventured downstairs earlier to conquer mount laundry and stood in awe at the utter chaois that is my downstairs den.

The children had a frat party.

Open bags of cheese crackers, crushed soda cups, dirty food plates, dirty underware and socks draped over anything and everything including the pool table. Lonely shoes, batteries out of the remote, tv on spanish cartoon channel and in the middle of it all, there sat my sweet children. Vegged out half dressed on bean bags.

There is something seriously wrong with this picture.

I'm SO not cleaning this crap up!

This is my sad face

Pity party for one? Yes, please. Sadly it looks like I'll be spending my big 3-5 all by myself. Kids have school and just me and my dog. This is NOT how I saw this going down next week. Check, please.

United Front

My kids are learning. Slowly. Dave and me are the united front. So when Princess is getting the lecture from me about dropping grades and lagging in her schoolwork, she was so surprised when a call with Dad later on proved to be a 2nd round.


One thing that will never change, we back each other's play.

So while we might disagree behind closed doors, these kids will find it hopeless to play us against each other. And since I'm in the trenches so to speak with them, Mom's word is law.

Cause Dad's got my back.

Take that teen!

Sunny ourselves

When the kids r in school and chores r done... We b sunning!

Dave's Wife

Dave's wife got a brush grill for her new truck for Mother's Day. His wife is just cool as hell!

Mother's Day

I gots me some sneaky little kids. Duchess wrote me this lovely letter: "Dear Mom, I love you and I know this is not much but Happy Mother's Day. I am sorry this is all I can give you" .... Okay when I finished crying I went and snuggled up next to her and had me some mommy, kiddo time. My sweet little angel just doesn't get it, the thought alone made me a very spoiled, happy mommy. I'm a very blessed mommy.

Princess and Other kid (She's staying with me while her momma and daddy spend their 20 year anniversary in Cabo, sweet) pulled quite the mission last night. They stayed up making signs, locked in their bedroom. I awoke this morning to my door completely decorated with the coolest signs on eart. Each letter drawn from something in my house. Here's the impressive part. These sweet children, waited till I was asleep. This was quite the feat. See, I can't sleep till the house is silent and kids are sleeping. So everytime they tried to sneak upstairs, I'd hear them and get up to check the house. They gave up and went to sleep. Then at 400 am they got up, snuck upstairs to quickly decorate the door, but they woke up Murphy. So when I staggered up to take him outside, they ran back downstairs. So when I finally crawled out of bed this morning, all I could think was "sweet children, thank god I didn't hear them and shoot them".

Happy Mother's Day to each and every one of you.

A Little Bit of Moi Week

So I've had a wonderful week........ kinda

 I'm basking in the glory of my hawt ass new tires! These babies are sweet.

 I had a lovely lunch with my youngest.... such a hoot. She has NO patience with crappy servers.

 Yeah, I'm a freak of nature. Enjoy.

 Ms Thang on the way to her tumbling exhibition.

 More self-portraits from Ms. Thang.....

 Mid tumble cause I have NO photography skills at all.

 She caught me mid-paper.... this was at the "OMG I have an hour left to submit this crap" moment.

 This hairstyle will NOT be leaving the house, lol. Star Wars the Clone Years....

 Thor! Cause dayum.....

And because you need to realize just how inappropriate I am, this is what I happily texted out to my girl. LMAO
