How was your Easter weekend? Did you get to spend time with the ones you loved? This was the first holiday in a long time I didn't have to worry about leaving early to drive back home for work the next day... it felt AMAZING!
Continued some of my favorite Easter traditions including coloring eggs with my sister, getting the Easter basket blessed with my mom, shooting dice after dinner, and having an Easter egg hunt for the dogs! Yes, you read that right... the dogs! (My mom desperately needs grandkids!) Jager definitely whooped Macaroni's butt in the egg hunt, stealing all the treats before Mac realized what was going on! (Check out the pic above)
Do you have any traditions at your house? Can't wait to eat those left overs later!
I think I may have come across my first wedding planning problem... I need a wedding song! Yesterday, my fiance's sister asked the simple question what our first dance would be and Rob and I looked at each other in confusion! Should be simple right? I mean every couple has a song! Apparently, we've been together 5 years and do not have a single one!
I could think of a bunch of songs that make me think of Rob, but none of them seem to be slower tunes! I've been trying to think of some contenders and this is what I have so far:
Brad Paisley: Then or She's Everything
Jason Aldean: Just Passing Through
Jake Owen: Anywhere With You
Faith Hill: Lost
What is your special song? Any suggestions?
Welcome back to the work week!!! Doesn't everyone just love Monday's? My sleep schedule usually isn't back on track to at least Wednesday and then it gets messed up all over again on Friday! I'm especially messed up this morning cause I spent the weekend in Indy with my niece Camry who's 2 going on 16 with her new attitude!
Thought it was crazy just how much kids are drawn to smart phones, she kept asking to play games on my phone! Are your kids like this? That and they were in love with the Micheal Jackson Wii Dance game... they even knew more MJ song's than I did! Although, it was kinda strange seeing a group of kids all under 7 do the MJ crotch grab!
On the adult side, I have been introduced to the App Draw Something. Have you tried this yet? I keep trying to stay off it... it took me forever to ween myself off Words With Friends when it first came out! Do you have any suggestions for addicting apps? Do you have a favorite?
Here's To A Good Week!
Came across this article today and was amazed that random drug testing is an option in local schools. Is this a common practice that I am just unaware of? Without the threat of sounding like my grandparents, I can't recall this happening in my day!
As a parent how do you feel about schools having the option of randomly drug testing your children? Should they have your permission? Feel free to share your comments!
Came across this article on Yahoo! listing the best playgrounds across the country and it made me think of the playgrounds around our area. Do you have a favorite to take the kids to? We have had the perfect weather the past couple of weeks to take advantage of the many great parks we have here in the Region. Kinda scary that it is still technically winter!
Growing up I can remember how cool Penny Park was once it got its new zipline! We would beg our moms to let us ride our bikes to the park! We would spend hours playing “don't touch the lava”, come back all dirty, and do it all over again the next day! What was your favorite? ( I could go for a ride on a nice tire swing!)
Let's keep our fingers crossed this nice weather sticks around for Spring!
