Well today is a very special day because my youngest turned 3. This is the first year she really could comprehend that it was her Birthday and what it’s all about. So today was extra enjoyable to watch her light up with excitement and joy. She had a breakfast date with me and my bestie. Then we took her took her summer session. She had a great day was finally able to go on the big slide that only the three and up kids could go on. Her teacher told me she went on it non stop at recess. So cute 😘My husband and I were able to go pick up all the party favors and decorations for her party next week with her friends and our family. Our plan for the night was dinner and taking her to see the new Hotel Transylvania 3 movie I bought tickets online early yesterday to get us great seats at 7pm. Our dinner was great she loved her Birthday Sundae. However when we got to movies we got all our snacks they printed my tickets then said they cancelled that time never notifies anyone that purchased tickets and other time were sold out. That kinda put a damper on evening. But we got refunded tickets and snacks. Savannah was very upset at first but she’s a trooper she smiled knowing we all wanted her to have best night and we did more pool time as a family and then put on Peter Pan. I am so glad she had such a great day and night she is a true blessing I love her so much. This week has been so busy my son has had Basketball each day 9am to 3pm. He’s had football 6:30-8:00pm each night. He got his retainer device removed but wires tightened. His mouth has been so sore he can hardly eat. We’ve had rain and thunder on and off and horrible muggy weather this week. I got in a workout yesterday abs will go tomorrow. So blessed to see all the loving wonderful friends and family who have wished Savannah a happy birthday. The real people always come through and the fake ones are always missing when it’s not about them. It’s nice to have clarity and know the truth. Looking forward to a great day tomorrow and a fabulous weekend celebrating our sweet girl. So proud of my son he’s doing great and I a truly blessed to have such a loving son and especially a son who is the best brother ever. It seems everything has been needing maintenance or repair lately. But I know we will nJs it up this steep hill and enjoy the coast downhill soon enough. Life always will have obstacles hurdles and tests and I know we will always make it through abs come out stronger. I hope everyone had a fantastic week and that tomorrow and the weekend is everything you want it to be. 😊🎁🙏🎂🌧😘🌵🏡❤️
Well this weekend went by fast Saturday Savannah and I had s good day on our own waiting for my son to get home. We went in pool went to Starbucks and played indoors as well. Brandon got here around 3pm and my mom stayed her with us until after 5pm. Then I went to buy toppings for the fresh pizza dough I made earlier.Brandon played with Savannah while o popped our masterpieces into the oven. Then after dinner and all the laundry and dishes and getting cleaned up in jammies. I watched Acrimony and then we all watch Ready Player One. This morning when I woke up I didn’t feel great.So I cancelled my Pure Barre class and hung out with the kids. We had breakfast went to Starbucks and I took money out for Brandon so he has lunch money all week at Basketball. We went in the pool had lunch and enjoyed our day. I got more cleaning done. Then we napped Savannah and I abs Brandon played Xbox. Savannah had an accident while napping so I cleaned her bedding but she used potty right before and after nap so can’t fault her it’s a learning time. She has been napping in undies for weeks with no accidents. When we all got up I started dinner and wash and then we ate. After that kids watched Disney junior and I cleaned out Savannah’s whole room and organized it. I also put all clean laundry away.

Today was a hot and humid day hit 117. My little one slept with me last night and has been doing great with potty training. Went before bed and when we woke up. We had breakfast and I got us both dressed and ready. I dropped her off at school she said goodbye and played with her buddy Chasen right away. I went to Pure Barre class and then got a venti green tea lemonade and headed home. Then I did Ally’s hip hop ride on my peloton. Later I went to see Incredibles 2 at the theater. Then I stopped at home before picking Savannah up from school. After that I made us dinner let her watch a show and checked on the ice cream I made. We went to my parents house to turn air on for them so it would feel good when they arrived home tomorrow. Unfortunately when we got there the clicker I had wasn’t working to open garage. Savannah wasn’t happy but stayed dry whole way there and on way home. She went on potty right away when we got home and stayed in panties all night until bedtime. She wanted a popsicle and I had some of the homemade coffee ice cream I made it was delicious. I made corn bread muffins and pumpkin bread. Looking forward to a great day tomorrow and my son getting home tomorrow.
Well yesterday for the 4th of July I got a morning Pure Barre workout in. The owner of our studio was so sweet and had shirts made for those of us that completed the challenge. After class I got a grande green tea lemonade and then headed home. My dad asked to take my son with them to Mexico so I got him all packed up. Savannah and I enjoyed some pool time with him before my parents picked him up. After lunch Savannah took her nap in underwear and stayed dry and went potty for me right after. Now after that she had some dinner mishaps she threw food and her plate and broke it. I asked her to pick up and she peed on floor not sure if accident or to get out of cleaning up her food mess. I threw plate away and cleaned up both food mess and pee mess. We went in pool again but she ended up pooping in her swimsuit outside so that ended pool time I cleaned all that up put her suit in wash and her in the bath. We had a goodnight and both slept good. Today we got ready I dropped her to school she was sad to see me go. I had a Pure Empower class. Then after getting my grande green tea lemonade I came home and did a peloton workout. When I was taking my bath I started hearing a horrible loud squealing noise. Called my husband when I realized it was our air conditioner. He called someone to checkout our unit and I haven’t heard squeal since I am hoping that fixed the job. Savannah stayed dry all day again even during nap. When we went in the pool we had the poop issue again 😂 so we got her in bath her suit in wash and I put dinner in oven. Then afterward we put on Jumanji and had our dinner. I ordered my son some underwear to surprise him with his costs more than mine but he loves it and doesn’t ever ask for much clothes wise just sneakers. I have noticed all his shirts are too small so I need to get him shirts in the near future. Just found out today he has five days of football conditioning next week so no pure barre for me as he has basketball in am and football in pm. They are letting him miss Thursday so he doesn’t miss his sisters Birthday dinner. I am hoping I get some workouts in though. Mom-life is a very busy life making sure you get everyone where they need to be keep them happy entertained fed clean make sure they are doing chores etc. I am hoping my daughter will be 100% potty trained by next week she’s so close. On the fourth we also made treats from our foodstirs package and I made homemade coffee ice cream . We have got pretty much all Savannah’s Birthday gifts. Just a couple more things I want to get her. I also need to get all the party items for her Birthday Party. I am doing Pure Barre tomorrow and hopefully Sunday but will miss Saturday. Waiting on Brandon’s uniform information and his school schedule to come in the mail. Hope everyone is having a great week! Goodnight 🌙💤😴😘🏡🌵
So today I was extremely tired had a long sleepless night last night. After I got my youngest fed and dressed and off to summer session. I came home and tried to nap but got texts and calls that were actually important so I got up and powered through. Got our Disney trip planned for Savannah’s 3rd Birthday. We got our Hawaii trip with my parents set for next year. I got Savannah’s Birthday presents ordered. Later on I took Brandon to lunch at California Pizza Kitchen. Then he went with me to get some groceries. I put some chicken drumsticks in the slow cooker to make BBQ flavored chicken for dinner. Went to go pick up my little one Savannah from school got her back so they could both go swimming. My parents came to visit which was nice and allowed kids to play longer in pool. I went to my Pure Barre Classic class Taught by Kim tonight great class. I finished off dinner when I got home made some corn on the cob as well. We watched I feel pretty after all Savannah’s Disney junior shows. Glad I get a day with my kids tomorrow but we will miss my husband it’s a bummer when he’s far away especially on a holiday.I’m glad Sunday and Monday that I worked out and started July off right. I’ve been enjoying Chopped with Martha Stewart as a judge. Brandon has our summer jam packed with his sports all June through next week we have Basketball. Then starting 23 we have Football Monday through Friday. That will go on until Labor Day. I took s nice relaxing bath and am rest for a good nights sleep. 😴
Good morning, so we got back in town Monday evening from Our girls trip to Disneyland. What a great trip 😎 I blogged on Saturday so let me tell you about the rest of our trip.
Sunday was a full day we got up really early to have our breakfast we split some pancakes and bacon I ordered from room service. Then first momlife mishap of day happened.
I went to put tray outside got locked out of room and my two year old didn’t know how to let me back in. So I called front desk and someone came up to let me back in.
My daughter wasn’t scared at all just chilling in her stroller watching PJ Masks with her sunglasses on ready for our day of fun.
So we headed into California Adventure Park to see the new Pixar Pier. It was crowded even though it was the extra magic hour for hotel guests only. The line for the new Incredicoaster was well past the start of Pier and about a 90 minutes wait.
We went to get in line for Toy Story Mania. That ended up being about an hour wait which made me decide to purchase max pass so we could just fast pass next time.
When we did get on Savannah was loving it but couldn’t quite get the hang of how to play the game so I helped her.
Afterwards we went through the pier checked stuff out then went on to the Ariel ride which Savannah loves. Then we went on to Cars Land had fun on the rides she was tall enough for.
After that Bugs Land is been asking her about the potty all morning but she hadn’t gone for me since hotel. So when we got off heimlichs Choo Choo I thought she pooped.
Took her to rest room all changing areas full so just went to a stall. She had wet pooped all up her skirt her back and this mom didn’t have a change of clothes with me. Parent Fail 🙁 But I had wipes and pull ups so got her all cleaned up. Told her no biggie and she went pee on the potty like a big girl for me.
I had to take the poop stained skirt put it under stroller carry her out in pull up and t shirt only and rush to a store to get her s new outfit for the day.
We did just that and then decided to go to Disneyland since our max pass worked for more rides for her height there. We first went on It’s a Small world. Then we went to Toon town went on Roger Rabbit Spin ride and then to meet Pluto and Goofy and Mickey. We tried for Minnie but she had just left for lunch
We went on the Go Gadget Coaster and then we were ready to get our stroller and have lunch. Unfortunately our stroller and it’s contents were no where to be found. We had to track down security and get them to help ya find it . After they searched two lands they said we probably weren’t going to get it back and gave ya a loaner stroller to use for the day.
Meanwhile when we were waiting in the sun my shoulders and back got burned terribly. We went on to have snack and not lunch yet as Savannah begged to see princesses first.
So we did she got to see Ariel, Cinderella and Aurora. We checked out some stores saw a few more characters. Right before we left to go to hotel for lunch and nap. I got a call and security had found our stroller.
So we got it and my daughter was now sad and liked the Disney loaner stroller better so I attempted to tow ours that lasted until downtown Disney then I had to stop and have had get in ours again.
We stopped at Starbucks got some salami and cheese a cake pop and milk and I needed an ice tea. After that we got up to our room I was thankful we had our stroller and that Savannah didn’t get sun burned like I did. I had lathered her up food before stroller went missing.
I got her down for a nap and I relaxed and tried to nap. She slept well so I got us some dinner ordered to the room but she didn’t eat hardly anything I’m sure she was too full from snack food.
We took the monorail back into the park for round two and had a fabulous night. Started at Autopia speedway. Then we went on to Alice in Wonderland, , small world , dumbo and then headed on to Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, Winnie the Pooh and the haunted Mansion.
We caught some of the fantasmic show before taking the Disneyland railroad train around the park to mainstreet. I still can’t believe she made it until passed 10:30pm. We saw fireworks as well.
When we got to the room I got her on the potty and gave her a quick bath before addressing her for bed. Then I slathered lotions on my burns and dressed for bed and slept well.
Monday was our last day we slept in a little then got our bag packed had them take it to store for us while we went to Disney and immediately went to California Adventure we got to see Anna and Olaf then took pics and went on Monsters Inc.
Then we watched the Disney Junior Dance Party Savannah danced the whole time she loves that so much. Then we got some popcorn and water and headed to go on Toy Story less than 15 min wait with our max pass. Then we went on Pixar Pal around and then to the little mermaid. We had a couple of churros and more water. After that we saw Mickey Mouse, Incredibles and went shopping for last items of day.
I got Savannah a Minnie Mouse purse and we headed to Starbucks got me my venti iced tea and her an apple juice. Our plan was to get bag and car and go to lunch before our drive.
Of course it took longer than expected to get our car so by the time I went to stop she was passed out. So as hungry as I was I said to myself just get on road beat the traffic and eat when she wakes up.
Well at first traffic was flowing nicely until Riverside then a big accident caused stop n go for next 30-40 minutes. Once that cleared I was making good time again but had a terrible migraine. When we got to Cabazon she woke up and was hungry but I had just passed exit.
So I told her almost home and we both were starved and when we got home I took her in first made her some food put her show on so I could unload items from the car. Then I ordered myself a power bowl from CPK and we went to pick it up.
The wait was kinda ridiculous but we did finally get it went home quickly ate it so I could take Savannah in the pool. The boys were flying home from San Francisco and would be home soon.
My headache was bit getting any better. When my son and hubby got home I visited with them then had my husband hang with Savannah so I could bath after I got her bathed and cleaned up for bed.
My head was still killing me most of the night. When I woke up Tuesday it hurt but I figured once I took Advil I’d be fine. I wasn’t after I dropped her off to summer session I had to make my room dark and lay felt really bad until about 5pm.
Thankfully my husband Jeff was home and took Brandon to basketball and picked him up. He also picked me up a sandwich for lunch and I really appreciated that. We ended up going to have dinner after feeding the kids and getting then situated.
We watched Incredibles with them when we got home I spent night getting all the laundry done. This morning Jeff had to go back to June Lake we will miss him. He took Brandon to basketball while I went to drop off Savannah.
I was able to pick up dry cleaning and get groceries. I grabbed a croissant and green tea lemonade while shopping. Came home got everything unloaded and put away. Now I need to clean house make tan & nail appointments. My fit in 42 appointment as well.
Glad my heads feeling better. Haven’t been at Pure Barre miss it. I should be going tonight . Back to healthier food and a schedule.
Hope everyone is having a great week! 😊🦖🏡🌵😎🙏
