The Friday 5

Yay!! Friday at long last… Now laundry or blog first? Hands down… Blog! This has been a pretty good week, mostly, minus the blue fingernail polish the He Who Will Not Be Named,( Nicky baby),… got all over the place! Grrrrrr…. but he is 6. We did get some amazing news!! The J-Boy… who has be delayed, his entire life… is NO Longer delayed!! Woot Wooot, which means, he is all caught up and needs no special services anymore. He is also not M/R… nor PDD/NOS nor any of the other wonderful things his last psychological test said! They did say he may or may not need speech therapy later as you don’t develop all the sounds you need till later but that’s fine by me!! He is ready for kindergarten! ¬†And let me tell you what, that is cause for celebration!!

The J-Boy rocks!! In the last year… Year, he has learned how to talk, be potty trained, skip, hop, cut with scissors, write his name, his ABC’s, numbers… and a whole mess of other important stuff!! He is truly amazing!

Who knew this would wind up being my favorite hair thingy. I used to tease the girls about straightening their all ready straight hair… and now look… I use this everyday! I guess they are getting the last laugh!

The Friday 5

Here are the things I love this week, (catch the subtle hint towards Valentine’s Day?) And where is the Mr…. ummm…. Snow removal, which I will also be doing after this post. Yay! Not. I am so hoping spring is just around the corner… But the sun is shining and everything just glistens so at the very least it’ll be pretty work. ūüėČ

Image

1. One of my favorite quotes, and in our case it is very true.

Image

2. I have to say after a week of using this … love, love, Love!

Image

3. What’s not to love about Red Shoes!! (Payless… BOGO sale)

Image

4. While I don’t really love the snow…. It is amazing! I haven’t seen this much all at one time since we left Colorado… wow, it’s really deep.

Image

5. Cara Mia… just look at that sweet face!

That’s all I’ve got for this week… How was your week?? See ya’ll back here Monday (when they will hopefully have school) Until then Happy Valentin’s Day! Hugs….

The Friday Five

Whew, Friday has finally arrived! ¬†Yay!! Along with hopefully warmer temps, but as we have a lovely snow storm moving in, prolly NOT. Aww, Winter I am so over you… go away, far, far away! I’ll telling y’all now the first person that complains about the hot summer… well, use your imagination! On to the Friday Five!!

                         

1. My paper flowers are coming along nicely… now I just need a form or something to turn them into the wreath I’m envisioning.

2. My favorite look for the week! I have never mixed patterns quite like that. I loved the blue pin stripe shirt with the floral cardigan, I’ll be wearing that … Lots! ¬†¬†

3. Eazy E shoveling the snow!! Who knew it would be so entertaining to watch him work?! 

4. The Biddy Girl’s homework… Grrrr…. imagery answers? Really?¬†

5. 2 of my favorite girls… goofing off!
Hope y’all have a fanatic weekend and we’ll see y’all back here Monday!

The Friday 5

So we have made it through another week… whew. And almost another month, Where exactly did January go? I think time just evaporates… I guess the old saying, time flies is a true one. We are soooo looking forward to some warmer weather this weekend, before it starts snowing, again. ( I swear this is payback for gloating the past few years.) However I don’t know about y’all but I am really longing for spring! On to the week in review….

1.Lacrosse is back! And he likes it enough that he’ll be playing on a team come the spring season!¬†

                                             
2. The new way to do long division…. grrrr…. now we have to deprogram him to do it the right way! ūüôā

3.The start of my flower wreath… with a more clear tutorial (at least for me.) Find it Here, so far it’s going pretty well… mostly just time consuming. I’m figuring several hundred outta do it!¬†

4. We had a beautiful sunrise this morning!!  
5. I love my music… I can live without the T.V., but not music. Pandora is the ticket for me! I can have music anywhere with it. Phone, tablet, computer and yes through my TV when I’m downstairs. And very worth upgrading to Pandora One.¬†

The Friday Five

It’s Friday, yep, really. And we’ve made it through a whole week of school… woohoo… we’re on a roll. (Now as long as I didn’t jinx it) It’s nice to settle back into a normal routine. It makes my guys easier to deal with.

Eazy E’s now 11!! Woo Hooo, oh boy,
closer to the dreaded teeny booper years!

Jay-Boys’ new glasses!¬†
Slope, foiling, and imagery 1’s

Laundry/mud room befores

Door folding table…

Yesterday was Eazy E’s birthday, and it’s tradition in our house that you get to pick dinner… what ever you want! Well…. E loves tuna casserole. The Mr. hates tuna casserole, so The Mr. says to E… pick something different please, Off to E’s favorite Mexican food restaurant we go! They were great!! Party at the laser tag place tomorrow!!

I’m in the process of making my long narrow laundry/mud room work for me and mine… and maybe pretty? But I’ll settle for somewhat organized and functional!

To fix my previous problem… I’ve decided to buy a¬†circular¬†saw, and build it myself….

The Friday Five Ice Edition

I think we are well into the days the Boyz have to make up school…. Once again…. No school due to Ice. So dreams of wandering around Joann’s is pouf up in smoke, it is the Boyz least favorite store, so pass today and hope for Monday. On today’s agenda? Keeping three young boys occupied! And hopefully not killing each other ūüėČ I foresee play dough and coloring books… and if they make me or themselves to crazy… work sheets… lots and lots of work sheets!

¬†While the kids were out of school…. What to do with them? Make them Rock Climb!! The Little Boyz didn’t quite get the concept, and the J-boy was saying “Get me DOWN!!”

The Lovely Sushi lunch with Brando
Brando Snapchatting while skating

Two sets of Roller Hockey Skates!
Still to big for the J-Boy… but they’re here
Hummm…. What do I want next?!
Brain Freeze! 

Gotta just love after a day of cleaning and laundry when the Mr send me a text that says… Going out to eat.

The Friday Five and Thanks

I love reading my blogs.. (Not mine.. but Others) It gives me a little piece of their lives, special moments along with the ordinary. I feel like some are long lost friends, I haven’t met, others make me go ,humm, now isn’t that interesting… still others make me laugh. I love the design tips, fashion help, makeup and hair advice! The ups, the downs and all the inbetweens. So here’s a big thumbs up to all the Other Bloggers who share their lives, hopes, dreams. Thanks and keep up the great work!

On to my little life and Friday Five!

                                         Photobucket

1. Meet Kate, she’s the first blogger (http://www.thesmallthingsblog.com/¬†)¬†I started following.. (Isn’t she cute!) She has an amazing beauty blog! Today she is also having her first baby… (Woot Woot!) I think she’ll be a lovely, creative Mom. So here’s to Kate!!

2. It’s been a snowy week here in Northern Virginia, I don’t know why I thought Virginia was in the South….¬†

3. Cara Mia’s first snow… It’s deeper than she is tall… hehehehe

  Tree on the wall
4. I found this one on Pinterest… and this one is my interpretation… not to mention that I didn’t wanna go out with all the crazy drivers to get those little clear command hooks! ūüôā

5. Eazy E reading (kind of out loud) the announcements at his MMA class. Belt promotion is this weekend, for both Eazy E and Nicky Baby, Orange for E and Yellow for Nicky.

The Friday Five and the Results

Oh what a week… beautiful, beautiful weather, mid-to high 60’s all week, this morning… rain and low 40, it’s what I’m calling the lull before the ice! (and maybe finally snow?) This week has been all about finishing up projects.. and revamping some rooms that I wasn’t quite happy with. (Yes, just in time for Christmas and all the family coming!) ¬†I still have Christmas decorating to do… soon as I decide just how I want it. I’m thinking I need some shims….
Learn to skate is going like gangbusters!! So much so that after talking to the coach… I’ve signed the younger 2 up for Hockey!! (woot woot… inline… but still Hockey!) Eazy E wants to play football so after giving him the choice … football it is. along with Lacrosse.
                     

Sticks!
Slap Shot? 
Get the puck!

The last Detail… and it’s mostly Okay

Next for Christmasing up

The results of the strike were….. a dismal failure!! The only one that even noticed was the Biddy Girl, and when I took the boyz to MMA… She picked up all the flotsam and jetsam… The Mr. just kicked all of his clothes outta his way, or walked on ’em. And it made twice as much laundry ¬†for me when I gave up the ghost and picked it all up myself, (even after I moved the hamper into the bathroom!) So I guess I’m resigned to picking up after the Mr, (can’t teach an old dog new tricks, I suppose.) The Boyz however are another story… They Will¬†learn to pick up after themselves or I’ll die trying! ūüėČ And it looks like “Someone” deleted the pictures of the results… hummm, I wonder who that could of been….

Woo Hooo Friday!

Busy… Busy…. Busy!! (But all good thing come to those who are busy!) This am I’ve spent running and gunning all over town and back! Boys to the bus stop, check. J-boy to school, check. Over to the elementary school to pick up fundraiser, check. Back downtown to pick up my newly won harp-backed chairs, triple check. Stop at Joann’s for more yarn and such, check. Whew… then it’ll be back downtown to pick up the J-boy, and off to ENREP to pick up his IEP, Nicky Baby’s meds, and maybe I’ll squeak out sometime for my latest obsession, Arm Knitting!

1. Looks like knitting to me
2. Easy Peasy 
3. WooHoo real chairs!

    
5. That face!
4. Yarn
1. After watching the video a billion times to see what I was missing…. Arm Knitting! It really is easy after getting the hang of it and “casting on”¬†http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=070qaUxEyp4¬†
This was the video I watched!! She does a really good job of breaking it all down.
2. I love the way it turned out… If I’d have been more patience and made it a bit longer… it’d be perfect!!
3. Score!! Local on-line auction!! I just love auctions but I hate going, I almost always get auction fever. But with the on-line deal, no stress, bid in my pj’s and I can set my “won’t go over price.” so win… win… win!!
4. More yarn… I love Joann’s for yarn and such, with the great coupons I get in the mail… or off my app, (don’t ya just love apps!) I normally get stuff at great prices! Yes, I did tell Miss Liha “curiosity kills the cat” , to which she replied “But satisfaction brought it back!”¬†
5. Gotta just love that face!! Cara was helping guard my stash.

The Friday Five

Gotta love Fridays they lead to the weekends, which are majorly laid back around here! Everybody gets to sleep in (well, most everybody)… no hurley-burly ¬†rushing around. And a road trip or two to go, see, and sometimes do. But to start my weekends… clean the house, do the laundry, get ready for the weekend! It’s a system that works for me! ūüėČ

1. Eazy E’s new do! “I look at least 18, now!” ¬†I’m thinking NOT!
2. J-Boy’s school picture, I just love it!!
3. The middle
4. Done… scarf number 3, one more and I’m DONE!

 

5. Shoe wrestling  

1. Eazy E was tired of looking like the Bieber… so off came most all of his hair (at the Biddy Girls suggestion ) He loves it! I love it, The Mr. loves it! And on the way home he said, “Now I look at least 18, right Mom?” ” Uhh, Nope but at least 12…. ” hehehehehe… NOT!
2. The J-Boy’s (He’s now 5 so he’s not the Da Baby anymore.. sniff sniff) school picture! They turned out sooooo good. I’m really pleased.
3. Mid-way through scarf number 3.
4. All done with that one, and I think I like the lighter yarn you can see the braid better.
5. The shoe wrestling champion, it’s all real with no script!
¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†You know the drill… Linking up with some of my favorite bloggers!
