It's the weekend!

Happy weekend!!

Thank you for all of your birthday wishes!!

Just to let you know, I did cancel my dentist appointment and went shopping on my birthday!! I didn't find much for the kids. I was disappointed in the new Childrens Place lines and everything I wanted at Gymboree was out of size 6 and 3T!! I do have to hit the Gymboree in my mall today, I have more Gymbucks to use and they expire today. It is a sin if you don't take full advantage of your Gymbucks! LOL

I found 3 shirts and a pair of new jammies for me at Kohl's. Kohl's has the best jammies! So warm and comfy! I also got more makeup and hair wax (which I've desperately needed!) All that courtesy of my parents for my birthday! Gotta love them!

Now that Rock of Love is over, I need to find another reality show. While flipping through the channels the other day, I thought I caught a glimpse of my favorite rocker guy!! So, I researched it!! The show is called something like the next greatest rock band. AND, Johnny Rzeznik from the Goo Goo Dolls is one of the judges - be still my heart!!! How awesome is that!! I think it premiered this past Friday night on FOX but I was at Bunko, so I need to find a rerun and then watch it from now on!!!

Chris had his last day of work on Friday!! Yay!! He resigned from his ED nurse manager position and is taking a full time job (instead of per diem) on the medical helicopter. He will also be part time as ED nurse educator at the hospital. He will work a ton less hours now, get paid for any extra hours worked now that he will not be salaried anymore and be home with us more!! So exciting!! I am so happy that this all worked out so we could do it! It will also be nice that it will just be the two of us on Tuesdays and Thursdays when Jack is in preschool and he has off! Imagine that, just the 2 of us!!

The kids painted their pumpkins this week! We are going to get more hopefully today.



Check out these lips of concentration!! So cute!! Now I may have to do a duplicate layout like the one I did of Macy below!!


We were hoping to go do the whole fall fun things today, but all the good places are closed on Sundays. So, I'm not sure what we're going to do. Chris just left for a little bike ride. I would've loved for us all to go but my ears and nose would've been frozen solid by the time we were done, so I got out of it! LOL

I'm having a little crisis because I cannot find the battery charger for my camera!! I don't know how this happened because I have the perfect put away spot for it!! A kid must have walked away with it at some point. I hope I can find it, my power is getting low!!! ACK!!! I don't even want to think of what a new charger might cost!!

Alright, I need to get dressed and cleaned up!! Have a wonderful Sunday!!

SO glad you had a great Birthday. Congrats to your Hubby on the new job and to all of you for more time together. That rocks! Elliott and I are so happy to have 20 minutes together in the mornings after the bus leaves. I can't even imagine 2 full days. Enjoy!

Your weekend sounds pretty eventful! I too was dissapointed with the Children's Place lines too. I love Gymboree stuff though and have spent way too much money there lately. Well, have a great beginning of your week.
