Back to Blogger

As you can see, I've moved my blog back to blogger as I'm not blogging as much as I used to, so I thought why spend the money for a server and domain when I can can do it for free here.  

I will be making some changes here with my format... so please excuse the dust.  ;)

Can I just say I love the fact that Friends is now on Netflix!  It brings back so many memories of when I lived in an apartment with my friends.  Where those ever the days... when you really didn't have that much responsibility.

As long as you worked and had enough money to pay off your bills life was good.  You could come and go as you please without having a care in the world.   Or you could stay out late at the bar or at your other friends house while singing on their karaoke machines.

Of course then I think about how my life is now.  Yes, I have a lot more responsibility as I'm married with two kids, but honestly, I wouldn't trade it for anything.   While there are times I do wish I could just take off and do what I want when I want, but seeing those faces (Clean or dirty) smile at me, telling me they love me makes it all worth it.

Happy Valentine's Day





I know it's a day early, but I also know I haven't been the best on blogging, plus I know tomorrow is going to be a very busy day as we have 2 basketball games plus will be leaving on vacation!  I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day!!   Maybe it be filled with love!

What's that smell?

I find it funny how sometimes you can really be into something, then all of a sudden times change and you no longer are into it.   Before I got married, I remember burning candles all the time.  I loved the look and smell of it.   Then I got married and that ended up coming to an end as my husband doesn't like/care for it at all.

Just a month ago I ended up finding a really good smelling candle at one of our local stores and have caught myself lighting it and enjoying the smell all over again.

What's funny is since buying it now I have friend talking about candles again as one of my friends is having a candle party and another one told me she likes diptyque candles, which I had never heard of before, but I found diptyque candles here.

Have you ever been into something, then end up getting out of it to only get into it again?  If so, what was your thing?!?

Christmas Break

It's hard to believe that Christmas break is already upon us! Maybe because we are sitting here just days before Christmas with no snow. Yes, we've had no snow before, but this year we had snow on Halloween & Thanksgiving, but this whole month we have had zero snow (knock on wood) and all the snow we did have melted already.

Just in case I don't get back on before Christmas arrives, I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New year!!

I love sitting here listening to my husband play our electric piano.   A lot of people think that an electric piano would sound nothing like the real thing, but let me just tell you that the one we have would be any muscians friend as it not only sounds like a real piano, but also real drums, guitar, organ.. etc.   The bonus with this type of piano for muscians is that you can record any songs you play on a disc!  My husband enjoys writing his own songs and if he didn't have that option, he would of forgot how some of the songs he wrote years ago sounds like as he plays more by ear than by reading music.

So if you are ever looking for a piano, don't shy away from the electric ones, you might be surprise how far they have come!  (Plus they are a lot lighter to move too!)

Week 2

Week 2 of school is in the books! I'm happy to say both kids seem to be enjoying school for the most part. The older more so than the younger, but at least they are both happy this year. Not to much exciting news happened this week.

Paul started his new bid at work this week so it was a matter of getting used to him leaving and coming home at different times. What really stinks is they no longer have 2 days off in a row. So his days off are now Tuesday & Saturdays. I try to look at the bright side of everything so I just say at least his days off are the same days the kids have off from Karate so we can actually do something as a family if we want.

I did have some exciting news yesterday. I had put my name in a drawing at the local hardware store and ended up winning tickets to Grand Valley State University's football game for tonight! So I now have a date night with my oldest since I took my husband a couple years ago and my youngest last year! Since it's already in the 50's now and is suppose to be in the 40's tonight, I'm thinking I better start digging out some of the warmer clothes so we won't be freezing and wanting to leave early.

Hopefully tomorrow I can update with our exciting night tonight... until then I'm just going to leave you with two words.... GO LAKERS!!!
