So, are you guys having a good week so far? Mine has been relatively quiet. And I'm good with that.
How bout some random "stuff".
~Soccer practices were supposed to have started this week. As usual, they are on Mondays and Thursdays. However, it rained over the weekend, which doesn't make for real solid playing fields. I mean, if you're a pig, the fields were in GREAT condition, lol. So needless to say, practices were cancelled. Jayla was so bummed! When I told her practice had been cancelled on Monday, she said, "Aww MAN! I took a nap for NUTHIN!!" LOL. Then yesterday, we get an email saying that practices have been cancelled for the rest of the week. To the average person, this may not be such bad news. But when the season is supposed to start on Saturday, March 1st, you have no uniforms, and you don't know who's on your team...there inlies a problem :-). I'll keep you posted on that front.
~Jayla had Wacky Wednesday at school this week. It was Dr. Seusses birthday. So the kids got to dress "tacky". Now, this presented a little problem for me :-). I strive, on a daily basis, to make sure my daughter looks neat and color coordinated for school. Right down to her little hairbows & socks (sometimes her undies too). So needless to say, when we received the notice requesting that the kids dress "wacky", I was a little nervous. I mean, me and Jayla have a reputation to uphold :-). But, we did it and she STILL managed to look too stinkin adorable. Check her out...
I know in this 2nd picture, she looks like she's gotta pee. But that's just her posing like the little girl from "Hooville", LOL.
~I have a confession to make. I trust you guys (for the most part, lol). And I have no problem sharing my, shall we say, issues with you. So again I say, I have a confession...(deep breath)...OK...I have an addiction. No one is perfect. And I know most of you thought I lived a quiet, peaceful, problemless life. But I don't. I haven't even shared this addiction with Mister M. I'm not sure how he's gonna take it. But I love him and I know he loves me. So, some how, some way, we'll get through it. You guys, I'm addicted to these...
YES, I know, I know...HOW COULD IT BE??? I dunno. All I can do is hang my head in shame. And it's not helping at ALL that my friend, Stacey, is enabling me. She keeps going to Super Target, going to the candy isle, grabbing a bag and getting a big ole HEAPING scoopful of.... DR. PEPPER JELLY BELLY's. I mean, what kind of FRIEND would do that? She takes them with us when we ride together to Girls Night, so we can snack on them as we ride. She had a bowl sitting out of them on Wednesday night when she hosted Girls Night. Then, to add insult to injury, she gave me a snackbag FULL of them today. There they were, sitting on her porch, inside my cake plate that I left at her house Wednesday night. Sheesh...you think you know someone, then they go and do something like this to you. She even offered ice cold Dr. Peppers as a beverage. Ya know, sometimes you just gotta cut people off...oh, no, not STACEY!! Other people, I mean. LOL :-D.
~Take a look at this picture of Trae. Do you notice anything...um, different about him?
No? You don't see it? Well, in addition to Jayla having her daddy wrapped around her finger(s). She also has our dog wrapped around a few too. Poor Trae, you should see the look on his face sometimes when Jayla is playing with him. She's put a bib on him before. A tiara, necklaces, flowers in his collar and ribbons around his neck. When we first got him a couple years ago, she even, politely, filled up his water bowl with strawberry Gatorade, lol. His little snout was BRIGHT red! :-) He's just so tolerable of Jayla and just loves playing with her. He just sits there like a sweet doggie and lets her do...WHATEVER to him. You know, stuff like this...
Now do you see it? Yep, Jayla tried to give Trae a manicure. Or is this a pedicure? Oh, I know, it's a "PAWdicure"! THAT's what it is! LOL And he just sat there and let her do it. Did I mention that she did all 4 paws? Yep...all 4! And get this...she "polished" them with the pink Princess stamp that Grace, of the Rabbit Run Cottage gave her, LOL. Thanks, Miss Grace!
You can hardly see the flowers with those cute little pups in the picture. It was too cute not to share. I mean, I may not share my Dr. Pepper Jelly Belly's, but I'll share a cute doggie picture :-).
Hmmm, wonder if Jayla could get Trae to sit in a flowerpot and pose for a few shots? I bet she could! I can see the disgusted look on his face right now, LOL.
Welp, you guys, that's a wrap for today. I'd love to hear if ya'll have any fun & exciting things planned for the upcoming weekend.
Oh, shoot...that reminds me. I almost forgot. On Saturday, me, my sister, my mom, my aunt, my sister in law and a few of my sisters friends are going out to dinner and to see this show. My sister and I have gone for the past 2 - 3 years and have really enjoyed it. So this year, we're making a big event out of it. I'm really looking forward to it. If you're ever able to go to a show, please do. It is QUITE impressive. These people are SO very talented. Makes for a really nice evening out.
NOTE: I am very aware that it's not 8:00am on Friday morning yet. But, I had all this in my head TONIGHT (Thursday), so I thought I'd better go ahead and getter dun! :-) Pretty cool to be able to change the date, huh?
Be Inspired...I AM!!
