Weekend Update 6.21.10

Did a weekend just pass?  Really?  Is it possible for it to go so fast that we missed it??  We had a pretty busy weekend here. 

Friday - we dropped the girls off for movie night at the dance school.  The proceeds benefitted a local charity - Kisses for Kyle. The girls got settled in with their blankets, pillows and some snacks. They thought they were hot stuff shopping for their own snacks.  They were selling little bags of popcorn, pretzels, candy, juice and water.  We headed out to a local mexican restaurant for a nice kid free dinner!  It was so nice to sit and chat with the husband.  After that we had to run home and make room for a new (to us) piece of furniture we were getting.  Before we knew it, it was time to pick up the girls.

{This picture is not from Friday, it's an older picture I had on my Flickr account}

Saturday - we had our final dance class.  It's more of a silly party for the kids. After that I had to run the kids down to my grandmom's house.  They were swimming with my parents, then they would all come back to our house that night.  Meanwhile, I had to rush home to get ready for a wedding we were attending up in North New Jersey.  We had a great time at the wedding and even managed to get a nice picture of the hubs and I.  We didn't get home until the wee hours of the morning.

Sunday - Up bright and early with the kids, we had to get ready for a 1st Birthday Party.  We spent father's day at the party, which was a nice BBQ.  Below is a picture of the birthday cake, made by my mom.  Isn't it cute?

Before we knew it, it was Sunday night and the weekend was over. Why do they go so quickly??

Upcoming Giveaway - CSN Stores

I've been asked to do a giveaway for CSN stores.  They have a few different websites, with everything from shoes and handbags, to baby things, to furniture and much more.  They even have a dedicated lighting website.

I was checking through that website and they have any type of lighting you would need.  This was a great find for us, since we have some track lighting in our family room.  A few years ago little while back Bugs was playing around and threw her necklace, with a big chunky pendant on it, up in the air and of course it hit one of the lights and broke the cover.  Well we only needed one light and of course nothing matches exactly, so we haven't exactly gotten around to replacing it.  See:

Don't worry, we did remove the broken glass.  That picture is from when it first happened. 

I've been browsing through their lighting site and have found some great things.  Now, I have to check with the man of the house to see which ones would work for us, but I like these (in no particular order):


Why don't you check out the site and tell me what lighting you like best?  Stay tuned for the details on the giveaway!  CSN will be giving one lucky reader a gift certificate good at any of the CSN stores!!  So spread the word and check back for the giveaway post!

Update Time

I can't really call this a weekend update, since I didn't post at all last week!  Yikes.  Time just got away from me.  I've been pretty busy between work and the kids. 

This was a big week for Bugs. She had her 2nd dance recital.  She was beyond excited.  On Wednesday I had to leave work early and take her for full dress rehearsal and portraits.  The show was "Broadway."  Her class did "Ease on Down the Road" from the Wiz.  She was the scarecrow.

We stayed and watched most of the kids in the rehearsal. This picture is not Bugs, it's one of the kids from her cousin's number, but I thought it was a sweet picture.

The actual recital was on Saturday.  We spent the day at a craft fair, did some grocery shopping, had dinner with family, then we all rushed off to the recital.  Bugs did great.  She gets this concentration face that we can't help but laugh at.  She doesn't smile until  the end, while dancing she is all business. LOL

Sunday we spent the day relaxing, doing laundry and watching Thunderstorms.  I'd say it was a pretty good weekend.  ;-)

Weekend Update

This was not one of our best weekends.  I can't even remember what we did Friday. It couldn't have been that fun! LOL

Saturday - Bugs had dance class, and we did some shopping and cleaning.

Sunday - Beans woke up with a low grade fever.  By the end of the night she had a full blown fever, I had a pounding headache and Bugs had a scratchy throat.

Thank goodness we had nothing planned for the weekend, since we weren't up to it anyway.  Beans is on the mend, but has been stuck to my side for the last 2 days.  Hope she gets better fast.  Tomorrow we have Bugs' rehearsal and her recital is on Saturday.

Weekend Update: Memorial Day

I've been looking forward to this three day weekend!  It is one of those unusual times when the husband is home and I actually have a day off too!

Friday:  My mom had surgery to remove an enlarged thyroid.  I spent the afternoon/evening at the hospital with her. 

Saturday:  Bugs had dance class in the morning.  There is only one left before the recital!  She is super excited.  My one year old niece, we'll call her Sweetie, came to visit and spend the night.  The girls were so happy to see her.  Beans had a few moments of jealousy when I was holding sweetie.  Mostly though she walked around trying to hold Sweetie's hand and lead her around the house.  She's the little mother hen in the house.

The husband painted the patio that is attached to our deck.  It has been flaking and crumbling for a while now.  It turned out really nice!  What a difference a little paint makes!

Sunday: The three girls spent the afternoon in the little baby pool splashing around the deck while Hubs finished the patio.  I made a nice casserole to take down to my mom's house for dinner.

Monday:  We hung around the house and had a BBQ.  We were thinking about heading to a nearby carnival, but my mom was feeling good enough to get out of the house for a bit, so her and my dad came up and BBQed with us.
