I hate being low on the blog rolls...

ha ha!! I realized I need to post a new message when I see myself slipping lower and lower on other's blog rolls!!

last weekend was full of activity ~ got a few things accomplished, still have a lot more to do, but it is all coming along nicely :)

my parents helped me a lot and I had them over for dinner on Sunday night. I was cleaning up the kitchen while they were hanging with the kids in the living room and it hit me.
I was happy.
I love being in my own house and making it a home for me and the girls. I am grateful to my parents for everything they do for me - and realize that I need to be a little more tolerant of them. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends and support through all of the good and bad that comes along. *love*

so Monday, we met Wendy and Jill and the girls at a pottery place to paint. The girls had a great time and Ava asks me DAILY about her horse that she painted and why does it have to be 5 days before we can pick it up??? afterwards, we went back to Jill's and the girls (meaning the big girls!) played Rock Band! oh my gosh, that was fun!!! I sucked but it was still fun! We finally made it through a whole song - Beastie Boys!! LOL

Bridget has the girls tonight and then for the weekend. I finally get a whole weekend!! woo hoo!

I am changing my WW meeting for this week to Saturday - I am not completely happy with the Wednesday night leader and I need something different to get me back on track. I am hoping a change of scenery will help. And I'll be honest - I need a couple more days of eating right to hopefully get a good result on the scale too.

I am still on my decorating blog addiction! I am getting so many great ideas for the house. But it is killing me to stay up late reading them! I need an intervention LOL~
Speaking of house stuff, I am getting free furniture for the girls! It belonged to Emily and then Alex & Aidan (family friends' kids) - it includes a bed, armoire and desk with hutch. I will probably paint it all white and get new hardware. I just need to get another bed and mattresses. What a deal!! :) I love FREE!


  1. That sounds so great! I love that you are so happy and content. And I am totally with you on the decorating blog addiction! I have been just using google images for all the things I want to do... kitchens with red accents, Waldorf homeschool classrooms were both my searches this morning. ;) Will you post a few of your favorites?


  2. Yay! So glad to hear you are happy Dina. You deserve it!

  3. Val ~ my blog roll has a bunch! I need to sort them some day.

    My current top favorite with a lot of my new ideas is "Be Different...Act Normal". I have been going back through all of her posts.

    I also like "Reinvented".

    I usually find new blogs from their favorites or links. :)

  4. I can't wait to see what you do with the girls new furniture! What about putting a trundle under the twin?

  5. I have nothing specific to say... I am glad that you hit a moment of true happiness. You so deserve it!

  6. I'm a huge fan of Rock Band!

  7. I hate being low on blogrolls too, I changed me blog address so I'm pretty much fading out of blog existance, lol.

    YAY for you for being so happy, that's awesome. And score on free furniture
