Our Wolf pack

I loved the both Hangover Movies.  So as a joke I bought this shirt since 4 girls from work and I are doing a little overnighter at the mountain. We're saying goodbye to friend Melissa and planning to have a good time with our little wolf pack.  We even had shirts made that say "Melissa's Wolfpack."

If I'm not using these I really like Neutrogena. I use there facial soap, toner and lotion.

2011 Jog a thon

Since I'm the fundraiser for the board our Smockville Montessori school I get to set up our yearly jog-a-thon.  It was so great this year.  We got metals made with the Smockville name on them.  I got balloons for the kids and after the running everyone had lunch and ice cream.  I had fun songs playing on the CD player and as they did their laps a parent would punch a hole in their name tag so we could count their laps in the end.  Aaron won and his little friend Olivia, who was really moving the entire 40 minutes, got second.

Fill in the Blank Friday-or Tuesday for me

1.   What I love most about my home is       my backyard, which entertains my five year old for hours.  We got the basketball area all finished and a brand new trampoline.  I love eating out on the deck and having barbeque's too.

2.  I'm excited because,   Aaron is more self-sufficient and at a fun age.

3.  My preferred method for blowing  off steam when I'm frustrated is     to call my sister and talk about it.

4.  Currently I am craving  chicken noodle soup-feeling kind of sick today so that sounds good.

5.  The thing I love most about my mom is    How she taught us to play and pray.

6.  If I was going to write a book about my life, the title would be     Staying on the Sunny Side of Life.

7.  If I were to eat one thing for the rest of eternity it would be       burritos-you could make them for breakfast, lunch or dinner and they are so perfect because you would have your protein, carb, veggies all in one.


Happy Mother's Day Weekend!
