Monday Funday 

Well after getting the kids off to school I went to The Miramonte Resort & Spa I checked in and took a wonderful Eucalyptis steam. Then I got a 80 minute stone massage. 

After that I went and got dressed for the pool met my husband poolside he got a cabana for the day we had some Bloody Marys and the cheese and fruit platter. 

Then Cheri got done with her massage and met us at the Cabana and we all ordered lunch and relaxed. Then around 2:50pm my husband had to go pick up kids. 

Cheri and I had two more treatments so we went in and first did our body scrubs and then a age reversal facial. It was past five so we were gonna clean up and leave. I couldn’t find my striped top but it was at Cabana. 

I went to pay for all our treatments and card want working turned out my hubby hadn’t activated yet but he realized that when he came down to use his card. 

We took the kids to Red Robin for dinner and then when we got home I got my daughter all dressed for bed and let her watch Sleeping Beauty. My dad came over to bring me medicine since I wasn’t feeling good. 

I never found my Tiffany & Company Elsa Peretti black Bean necklace I hope they find it at the spa o let them know I was asked to take it off during massage. 

Great day but it did me in since I was already feeling under the weather before hand. I need rest and green tea 🍵 hope everyone had a great Monday 🙏🍁🏡🤗😴

Weekend Roundup 

Well Saturday I did not feel so great but by end of day I felt good enough to get items at Target and cook my family a yummy dinner. Today was a busy day I didn’t feel great this morning but got myself together and kids ready we went to Starbucks then I made my daughter and myself lunch while my son and husband went out on errands. 

When they got back we went to the Carnival at Sacred Heart School our good friend Sara met up with us and brought her kiddos who are great friends with my son. 

We all went on rides and played games my little girl went on the ponies 3 times she had so much fun. She missed her nap so at the end she was spent. Although when we got home she got a second wind. 

Unfortunately my son felt awful once we left and is still not feeling great I am hoping he will feel better and be ok to go to school tomorrow. My right ear has been killing me and my nose is heavily draining. 

I put Vix on my neck under nose and on chest took a vapor bath earlier and my poor sons stomach hurts so he’s got water Gatorade and saltines by his side and a puke bucket just in case. 

I hope everyone had a great weekend and please pray I feel better and of course my son please feel better soon too 🙏🤗🏡🎃🍁

Tired as a Mother 

Thursday I got the kids off to school I knew it was my sons Friday. I was tired but wanted to get home get cleaning started and make treat bags for my buddies I was meeting for coffee. 

I managed to get a good amount done before 9am and really enjoyed having some girl time with my dear friends. Especially nice when they are other moms and you can all laugh about life’s craziness and the changes our kids are making as they grow up. 

When I returned home still tired 😓I got busy prepping a yummy beef stew and getting that put on low and slow in my crock pot for dinner. I had a lot to get done clean rugs, floors, make detox water. Make grocery list and get groceries. 

I managed to get that all done and pick up both kiddos. Kids enjoyed dinner I found out my son got an F on Spanish quiz which took his A to and B-. I also found out he never asked about what he missed last week when he was at orthodontist so he’s a week late on assignment will be penalized for that so I spent my night getting him on track all while entertaining my two year old which that combo is exhausting. 

I tried to get to sleep early but it was 11:30 before I fell asleep. I woke up at 4am and was unable to get back to sleep so when my little Savannah woke up at 6 I was so tired.

I wanted to make today a nice day so when my son got up and I know he did a lot of work last night. I told him to come with me to drop off his sister who still had school and I’d take us out for coffee. 

I got him this Halloween flavor a Zombie Frappachino which he liked I just got and iced mocha. When we got home my sOn still had a few hours of work to do. I wanted to fall asleep tried never did 😂.

Decided to start laundry and other cleaning fed us some left over stew for lunch did manage to watch my recorded show from previous night. Then Brandon and I watched “Big” he had never seen it before and really liked it. We actually lounged from 1-3 which felt nice. 

I picked up my little one got us all settled at home and fed the kids. Watched two movies with Savannah a Halloween toy story and Inside Out. I finally got myself crackers cheese salami and olives and water for dinner. 

My daughter must have wanted a snack she kept taking my salami. Once I got her off to bed I looked forward to watching my shows and unwinding I didn’t have it in me to take a bath. My son Brandon was enjoying having X Box time . I did manage to fall asleep by 10 pm but my daughter woke me up at 2 am and has been doing 360s in my bed since then at least she’s sleeping I am exhausted 💤. . I’ve only been getting 4-5 hours a night sleep since Wednesday I need rest. I’ve been breaking out and this is partly why. 

Please pray this mama gets some much needed sleep 😴 hope everyone had a great week and has a wonderfully weekend. 🏡🙏😂😴🍁🎃

October 24, 2017 

Today started our with my little one calling out for me as my alarm clock ⏰. I got my son up so he could get ready for school get his chores done and eat breakfast. 

I fed my little one although she wasn’t a big eater this morning. I got her dressed for school and myself all dressed and ready. Then we headed out the door we tried to reach my husband this morning but weren’t able t reach him. 

I dropped Brandon off first my little one cried as usual missing her big brother already. She quickly got over it and was singing with her mama on the way to her school. 

We got there and got her all set outside playing with the others but she was hesitant to let Mom leave. I headed home and I got the laundry and dishes going. 

I baked some pumpkin bread and made hard boiled eggs. I just had one of those guacamole 100 pack and chips for lunch and was sei King water all day.

I got my sons Alexa working. I picked the kids up from school and we had a yummy pasta dinner tonight. My daughter hasn’t eaten much at all today not at breakfast for me or lunch at school so yes I am actually happy she’s eating popcorn with me while we watch Cars 3. 

My son Brandon has a lot of homework to do tonight so he’s been busy with that. I have a lot to get done tomorrow. My son was up doing homework until 9pm. 

My little one went down around 8pm and I got a chance to watch The Little People and Below Deck. Now I am ready for bed and hoping to get good sleep 😴 hope everyone had a great day 🏡🙏🌻🍁🇺🇸😴

Disneyland/California Adventure 

My son turned 11 this past Saturday October 21st. So to celebrate we took him and his two best friends Blake and Noah with us to Disneyland/ California Adventure for the day. 

We left at 7am and first took the kids to Starbucks for coffee and treats. Then when we arrived to Anaheim we checked into the Grand Californian Hotel before entering the park. The boys were very excited.

When we got to the ticket booth it was packed and we were able to get the boys park hopper tickets and add max pass. However we weren’t able to add it to my sons annual pass or mine due to technical difficulties they were having they told me to just pay for daily rate on my phone app. 

I wanted us to skip it at that point and just so no max pass but the worker pushed it. Anyhow we got in line for California Adventure Park and took the kids to Guardians of the Galaxy first. I was a little bugged that even after that ride which had an hour wait and was well worth it as it’s a super fun ride. I was frustrated that I’d been charged two times for the two max passes and it wasn’t working so since ours weren’t working it was stopping our whole group from using the max pass advantage. 

We decided to go to California Screamin ride next and got a delicious Churro on the way. We did the single rider line me and my husband the kids went in regular line And we waited for them as we got on and off super quick. 

Then the boys were hungry so we went and got some 🍕 pizza and salads for 🥗 lunch. Then we made our way over to Grizzly Rapids my husband sat that ride out but me and the boys enjoyed it and got soaked. 

After that we headed over to Soaring the World and we all really enjoyed that ride. The boys wanted to head to Cars Land and go on Radiator Springs Racers which we did single riders so glad we did the fast pass line looked to be over an hour long. 

Once we got off that we all got snacks I was craving a pickle and then we headed into Disneyland. Mind you the Max passes I was double charged for still not working. I decided to give up at that point. 

We decided to go on the train 🚂 and the kids wanted to get off the first stop so they could go on Pirates of the Caribbean my husband and I decided to take it all the way around so we gave them all their money. 

My sons friend Noah dropped his $40 almost right after thank goodness some honest people grabbed it and he was able to get it back. My husband Jeff and I really enjoyed the train ride and we got off where the boys did but they weren’t on the ride yet.

So we waited for them to get off and went to Big Thunder Mountain we had so much fun Jeff and the boys were being silly 🙃 asking questions to random people and telling people to not look the goat in the eyes. 

After the ride Blake realized he left his phone behind so he and I raced back before the train left and retrieved it. Then we all decided we were hungry and had grilled cheese and tomato soup and got the Birthday Boy chocolate Cake. 

After that we headed into tomorrow land and went on Autopia ride and then off to Space Mountain which had a long wait but well worth it . My legs were so sore by this point . 

We purchased a picture of the group which came out greAt 👍🏻 The boys headed to the Matterhorn and we headed to main street told them to meet us by train. We got something to drink and I went into a store to get my little girl two shirts since she didn’t get to come on the trip. 

The boys met us and we all made our way back to the hotel. They had so much energy and stayed up playing cards. I took a hot bath and headed to bed but my husband snores I am sure more that night from exhaustion so it took me awhile to fall asleep. 

We woke up everyone took their showers got dressed then we got on the road went to Starbucks and Mc Donald’s. We got back into the Desert met up with Blake’s family first to drop off. Then we dropped Noah off to his parents. We had such a great time we love those boys. 

We rested once home then got kids ready met my family out at The Old Spaghetti Factory for Brandon’s Birthday dinner. Great dinner and weekend but we all were  super exhausted. 

Hope everyone had a great weekend 🏡🎉🎁🎈❤️🎂🍕🚂🎃🙌🕶

October 23, 2017 

Well I am tired this morning slept on our couch last night and was up late doing laundry. I had coffee with my husband this morning before he had to go out of town for work. He’s been having to answer all the calls from the motel and got an email that someone had not got back to while we were away on the weekend. 

Unfortunately his staff is unreliable and is not there on time nor do they do all the items specified in their job description. This adds so much extra stress to my husband and I feel bad that he can’t ever feel like things are done right or at all when he is away. 

My son is having a hard time getting used to his braces he hasn’t eaten much and he already has a loose wire. My little one is at school but was not wanting to let me go this morning. 

I need to get my car cleaned and get the smaller Birthday gifts for our son as well as the NBA jerseys for his shadow boxes to hang up in his room.I need to go by the dry cleaners and lay out food for dinner. 

I need to get patio organized and patio chair put together. I want to make some pumpkin bread today and decide what type of cake and cookies I am making for the carnival this weekend. 

I really need to make my hair appointment and get that done this week. Me and Savannah need to go to the dentist as well. I am going to get glitter and paint so we can decorate pumpkins this week. 

I need to try to exercise this week and hopefully sign up for Pure Barre classes again. I want to get house all decorated and clean. 

I was able to get our son a curry jersey and James jersey for his shadow boxes. I found him a few other items r surprise him with for Birthday gifts. He’s so lucky that my husband and I were able to get us a room at the Grand Californian and let him bring his two best friends with us to Disneyland and California Adventure parks. 

He has really great friends and we really enjoyed having the boys with us. I am also glad my son loves his sunglasses 🕶 we got him from the sunglasses hut. He looks so handsome in them very cool. 

Still got here not even noon yet and already 98 degrees outside. My sons GPA went up again very proud of him. I already miss my husband who is driving to June Lake for work and will be gone this week . 

I picked up the kids from school my son worked on his homework I started dinner and put on Super Why for my little girl. We had a nice family dinner although we were missing my husband. 

We had pumpkin Pie for dessert and my son opened the rest of his gifts. I gave Savannah a bath and we put on Sleeping Beauty. 

After I got my little one to bed my son was playing Xbox and I took a relaxing lavender bath while watching Real Houswives of Orange County. 

I am ready for bed now hoping for a full nights sleep 😴 Hope everyone had a great Monday!

October 19,2017

Well today I got to sleep in until 7am because my daughter slept in. Then I got her fed and dressed for school. Took her there and headed home to start laundry and dishes. 

Later on I met my bestie for coffee it was nice to catch up. Then I headed home got some cleaning done and got dressed for my Pure Empower class. It was my last class until I re up my membership. 

The class was tough it was like a private class today there were only three of us there today. Afterwards I met up with my husband for lunch. 

Went back home finished cleaning and took a shower then picked up my daughter from school and headed to my sons last football game of the season. 

Got kids home and we had dinner and I watched Sleeping Beauty with my daughter my husband went to our friends house. My sons been doing homework and studying all night. 

He gets his braces on tomorrow I am so excited for him but hope that he isn’t too sore to enjoy his Birthday this Saturday. I can’t believe he’s already turning 11. 

I love my son so much and he’s a great kid but he is pulling away from me more now that he’s getting older and that’s hard I miss how close we were. 

I am going to get to sleep as early as I can because I’m so tired. Hope everyone is having a great week 🌻👌🍁🤗🙏🏡🇺🇸

Midweek Roundup 

Yesterday I was able to get in a Pure Barre class it was a great class. I also got my daughter 3 pairs of shoes and socks for both kids. I got myself three new pairs of workout pants two sports bras and three regular bras. 

I’ve been changing sizes during my weight loss journey I am trying to get new bras and. Sports bras as I was in a 34DD during my pregnancy and for awhile afterwards but am back to a 34 D. 

I was able to go to drop off our dry cleaning after having lunch with my husband at Stuft Pizza. I also went to Target to get cheap items for my daughters potty training prize box she’s been more consistent going at least one time a day or more everyday when at home. 

My husband made us a delicious chicken and vegetable dinner. I made some cookies for everyone for dessert. Got rest of my cleaning done. 

My daughter came in our room around 1am and I went through sleep on the couch. 

This morning I made it to Pure Empower and that class was great and hard but I am so glad I went I sweat a lot. I grabbbed a coffee. Our living room sofa and chairs were delivered which is great.
