This and that

A little bit of this and that :) Yesterday the 3 of us went to Academy and Evan found the fishing isle and stayed in the isle for like 30 min's...going on and on about needing to go fishing with Grandpa :) I tried to explain to him that Grandpa's lake was frozen... and it would be summer time until we could actually fish :) He didn't care he wanted every lour they had!!! He has a good behavior/chore chart that he earns stars to get prises and he decided he needed a lour to be his prize :) Yes Bryan took off all the hooks and sharp parts which mostly killed it for future use but he loves it just the same :) He even had to sleep with it :)
When he saw this pack he freaked out and said Grandpa needs this!!! They were really cool but not $50.00 cool...sorry Grandpa :) he he
Evan putting a lot of thought into this one :)
Then we were off to the mall which I really do not like to do on a Saturday but Evan enjoyed using his quarters his Great Grandma Buzz sent him for Christmas :)
I also had a coupon for Build a Bear so it was his lucky day! I love the Longhorn...I have been waiting him to choose it and with no influence today he did :) This was the first time we let him get shoes for an animal though :)
Here he is in the car with his 2 prizes...The fish lour and his new Longhorn :)
Today (Sunday) Bryan did a freezing 40 mile bike ride...yes outside :) while Evan and I spent the day in our p.j's - Enjoying some coloring and paper cutting and some snuggling :) Got to love a lazy Sunday :) Have a good week everyone!!! I can hardly believe tomorrow is Feb.1st!!!

Any guesses where we went???

Any guesses where we went??? Well it is Friday... And come Friday the craving usually hits...
Yes...they have chips...
The chip muncher says make your guess :)
Did you guess it???
It sure is Friday and we sure did go to Chipotle :) The three of us love it! And tonight we saw one of the same guys come in that was there last Friday so we talked with him and called him Norm :) he he Also, Evan made a friend...It is so cute how kids just gravitate to one another :) They really hit it off :) His name was Michael and he and Evan were having a good ole time...Truth be told I think Bryan and I enjoyed talking to another couple with an only child also. Fun as always! Gotta love Chipotle :)

Just fish

So today after pre-school we meet Evan's friend Katie at the turtle pond :) Evan and I have never been there and it was a lot of fun! It is in Katie's subdivision. However, today there were no turtles...just fish :) The kiddos had a blast throwing bread for them to eat. When they were done they played at the attached park. It was really nice but I didn't snap any picture's as I was enjoying my mommy play date with Katie's mom :)
Here fishy fishy :)
Katie's brother Graham joined in on the fun as well :)
Katie's other brother Harrison joined in from his car seat :)
Evan and Katie feeding the fish through the little cracks...
So cute!

Truly spoiled

Truly spoiled... This little boy could want for nothing I tell you! He got his 3rd box of surprises from his Grandparents (my parents) and Grandma! He really was excited :) See I went to the Doctor this morning and it seems that I have a sinus infection and walking pneumonia so I wasn't being a very fun Mommy today-until he got to have his super cool box :)
His excited smile :)
No way!!! The tubes for my hamsters!!!

Super cheese :)
And a little black stuffed cat... This boy loves his stuffed animals :) He sleep with it tonight.

Thanks for all the goodies!!! Love little rotten :) he he he...

It's Friday

Today is Friday :) We didn't do anything to exciting as I am still not feeling great. We went to the Gym, ate lunch with a friend , and had some outside digging in the dirt and jumping on the trampoline time as it was another beautiful day! I must say I really enjoyed how this evening kinda turned into a little family night :) Since I got to pick the dinner restaurant we told Evan he could have ice cream- we have never been to this little ice cream shop but it was cute and we all played the game memory together :) Evan loves the game and it was a fun little family night :)
Evan wanted oreos on top of his ice cream & the lady gave him a whole pack-
Ummm is it my turn yet??? :)

What a gorgeous day

What a gorgeous day it was! It was in the 70's today- the sun was out and it was a beauty! We started the day with Evan going to Pre-school which can be rough but not today :) Today was Teddy Bear day :) He decided to take his panda bear :) Yeah for bear day as I love to see a smile on his face when getting out of the car :)
After school we had a play date with Katie and her siblings at the park :) It was so nice to be outside enjoying good weather and good conversation with a friend :)
Evan enjoying the big swing :)
Evan swinging and watching Katie pushing her brother Graham...sweet siblings :)
Evan and Katie picking weeds I mean flowers :) Its not a very good picture of them but I had to zoom in... not to interrupt their flower picking conversation :) They are so funny together!

Chipmunk:Mission Completion

I'm back :) I know I went on a little blog break and then blasted ya'll with my balance post. See we keep very busy over here and when I posted about balance it was because that is what I was looking for...well I still am but I am not sure life is truly balanced we are all just doing the best we can :) So onward and upward!

Like I said we have been busy... we went down town to this really cool park...Evan my nature boy had a blast...finding leaves :) ha- my crazy boy! We went to the Zoo.....a few trips to Chick-fil-a...the gym and today's mission...Chipmunk's :) Evan has liked the Chipmunk's-as stated in an earlier was his first movie :) So last week there was a child in the kids club at the gym with an Alvin toy. He wanted it so bad! The ladies thought it was some kind of kids meal being a mom who wants to give her child the world ( yes, toys are a part of this world...HA!) I went to the McDonald's in the gym parking lot to see if this is where it came from and sure enough it was. Yippee... he got Theodore :) On Saturday Daddy got him Simon. Tuesday he got Jeannette. Yesterday no such luck at our McDonald's on getting one he didn't have( there are 6) So today we tried another McDonald's only to find out that Friday is the last day they are having these toys. WHAT!!! So being a crazy mom I mean loving mom I proceeded to go to 6 other McDonald's...don't get me wrong we did errands as well but we were defiantly on a Chipmunk mission! Well, needless to say he and I were pooped! We headed home to do what??? Why get online and get more McDonald's phone numbers to see if the 3 missing chipmunk's could be found and low and be hold we did it! We ended the night with all 6 chipmunk's in my happy little boys hands!!! Chipmunks mission completion... And just for the record- he did not eat at McDonald's 6 times :) he he...we just bought the toy!

I LOVE the chipmunk's!!!
I mean really...doesn't this spoiled I mean happy little face say it all! You know you would do the same for your own love bug :) he he he

Game On 2

Game on Diet...did we not just finnish our first game??? For those of you who do not know what I am talking about... I was just a part of a diet called The Game On Diet- it is a book - And even though it is called a diet it is more of a game :) 2 or more teams compete against each other to gain the most points for things like drinking a gallon of water a day, sleeping 7 hours a night, eating 5 times a day, exercising, supporting your team mates, trash talking your opponents, dropping a bad habit and picking up a new good habit! I in game one lost 15 pounds!!! But truly gained some amazing friendships!!! I have never really been a part of a team before and I can not tell you how proud I am to be on this one! We 3 are THE POWERHOUSE!!! Well, we were in Game one... In Game on 2 we will gain some new members :) I can not wait to welcome them into our amazing team and awesome game! We have had a break and I have picked up a few pounds so I am excited to get started with Game on 2 :) Don't get me wrong it is still hard!!! Eating right, exercising and following the rules to get your points is not easy but with such a great team/ support system I know I will succeed and so will ALL the players of Game On 2!!! So lets go girls...GAME ON!!!
THE POWERHOUSE!!! Me, Pilar, and Nicole
Me and the POWERHOUSE girls after a great ride :)
