My neck of the woods - End of school

The end of school for this year is almost here -which means a lot of end of year celebrations! -Well, mostly for the elementary crowd -my daughter was lamenting that all she gets is- to take state tests. She did get an award the other day for being a student of the month though...
The other day my son had a play day outside and a picnic lunch - Which they're supposed to have another picnic day and the talent show for the last day of school (His class is going to be in it -I bet it's gonna be so cute) -So, yep that's what's going on in my neck of the woods -How about you?

My neck of the woods -It's a baby!

No, no -not me, not mine -Whew! You see I pass by a field of horses -just about everyday -it's actually near my son's school -and I happen to think it's pretty neat. And what's also really neat is there's a baby horse now too! -see:
So-cute! Isn't it?! And I refuse to catch baby fever! -even if I did recently get a copy of my friend's book -about pregnancy-etc.

Just proud of her for her book and that she's about to have her 3rd baby anytime-Shout out to her! You can also check out her site/blog :)

What all else is going on ? -Well, I just celebrated my anniversary this past weekend -and glad it wasn't the end of the world aka -my last meal ;) And so far have survived the storms -got some pretty bad hail the other night -no real damage thankfully though -My thoughts and prayers go out to those families that did have damage and might have lost their homes, loved ones -sad/scary times! But, that's how it's going in my neck of the woods -Be sure to join in with the RHOK's -Your neck of the woods -and let us know how it's going for you!

My neck of the woods -Mom's day Weekend

I hope everyone had a pretty good mom's day weekend! I had a pretty good one -even if it did seem a bit frantic at times - Here's how it went in my neck of the woods...
Saturday my daughter and I took a mother/ daughter trip to Philbrook -it was a nice trip and a nice day to walk around -but, a bit hot outside -we also had to get back and get ready for our dinner outing. It seemed we just got home for a little bit when my mom and everyone came over and we went to eat at Shogun's- That was also a nice and tasty outing! For Mother's day I got some cards and chocolates- etc. Later Sunday -I went to my Gma's to give her mom's day gifts and saw family over there again. Then came home and relaxed a little bit -All in all a nice Mom's day weekend!
So, how's it going in your neck of the woods? Be sure join in with the RHOK's your neck of the woods and let us know.

Happy early Mother's Day

As mother's day is approaching I thought I'd do a Friday Five in honor of Moms / Mother's day -Here's five videos the moms out there can surely appreciate:

I've mentioned this lady before -She really gets how it is -In the Muthahood:

Also from the same lady:

Some other people who understand -The Mom Mayhem -also it's pretty cool this was from a local church:

This video shows how Mother's Day goes for so many:

And isn't always nice when us moms get a -Mom's Night Out:

Happy Mother's Day weekend!

PW's BHtTW - Marriage and a honeymoon

Week 4 of joining in with the RHOK reads:
After the big beautiful wedding -Ree and her Marlboro man set off for an Australian honeymoon - it was an "adventure" all right! Of course they -ahem -did things that married people do ;) and explored Australia -but, unfortunately there was also quite a bit of uh -throwing up. Which unfortunately I could somewhat relate to on my honeymoon -we didn't go to Australia or some other far away land -no, being a somewhat worried mom-leaving my daughter to be taken care of by family members we didn't go too far -we went to Texas - San Antonio to be exact. We took a flight there and back and even though I had been ok on my only other plane ride a few years earlier -for some reason I got air sick! -nothing says romantic like holding a full barf bag going to your honeymoon -right?! ;) And there was a moment I thought maybe I could be pregnant but, I highly doubted it -it seemed just the plane rides got to me. Once we were in San Antonio we had a blast -going to Sea World, Going along the riverwalk, and ahem -doing other things that married people do ;) -So, it turned out pretty well. And when we got back and picked my daughter we all settled in for our new life -all of us together. Of course for PW and MM -there was more turmoil to come - To be continued ...

My neck of the woods -The Clubhouse

We had this table left up from our Easter lunch - and my son of course wanted to make it into a clubhouse. Which we do occassionally have a fort/clubhouse up in the living room -so we agreed- it was kinda cute when he asked if he could keep it forever -I said I wasn't sure about forever -but, we'll keep it up for awhile. We've all had our turn in there -even the cat and dog seem to enjoy it ;) That's what's going on in my neck of the woods -how about you? Be sure to join in with the RHOK's -Your neck of the woods!
