I did it!

At Wal-Mart 11 days ago (yes 3 in 1 was the theme that day) I purchased a handy dandy coffee center.

I faithfully followed the instructions but couldnt figure out where the water went (I learned the hard way it didnt go in the steam hole).
I am happy to report that I am smarter than the coffee center and the instructions that came with it.

I am now sitting here enjoying my first cup of coffee (now I just need to figure out how to steam milk without burning myself).

Slumber Party Awards

Since the first sleepover the children have had I have given the "first one to drop", "last man standing" and "first one up award" (when they were small I actually had certificates and took pictures of the winner with the award. At age 11 it is now just braggers rights).

Why is she Laughing

Because she has zero emails in her inbox
Because she will not be "working" until 7-7
Because her eye brows are hotter than yours
Because black is slimming even during pregnancy
Because she is still pregnant
Ok not that

Sydney come play!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I miss Henry

Yesterday I get a frantic call from my mother:

Mom: Where are you?

Jane: Sonic

Mom: In Phoenix?

Jane: No Mesa

Mom: So you are not in California?

Jane: No I'm with the kids at Sonic (side note Happy Hour 1/2 price drinks)

Mom: I just wanted to make sure you were not in the same diaster we are

Jane: What's going on?

Mom: I dont know we were headed to Airport, they just dropped us off after the bomb threat

Jane: Where are you?

Mom: California

Jane: What bomb threat?

Mom: I dont know we are trying to get the news on the internet now

Jane: Where are you again?

Mom: By LAX, we were dropped off on Century Blvd

Jane: You are in California? Going home or going to?

Mom: Yes we are at LAX

Jane: When did you go there, I guess if I were still taking care of Henry I would have known that

Who knew that I would miss the bird

Happy Birthday Shooter!

I love you pretty girl!

3 in 1

True Confession. I have a photo collection of purses, RODS and large people. I could chalk this picture up to good luck or just another day at Wal-Mart.

Where have you been?

Easter weekend is now complete. That means that I can pay bills, reclean my house, do work email and blog (or maybe I'll take a nap).

As many of you know I have a collection of photos with family stickers on the back. Last night at dinner I was particuallry amused by this one.
The rest of the story......I show the picture to my sister Ruth. She says, "oh yeah thats my neighbor". Another ooops in showing of photo collections

Horton Hears a Who

We took Ruth's idea and ran with it. The Drive In Movie was a great idea and we had tons of fun (the second movie got super cold though, if you are thinking of going pack extra blankets and remember to wear closed toe shoes).

Here's a quick budget run down:

$32 Pre-packed Pizza and Soda

$14 Pre-packed Candy and Snacks

$50 New Lawn Chairs

$7.50 Entrance to two movies

$20 Gratuitous thank you to the gentleman who jumped us when we discovered we had a dead battery

Foundation, Warmth, Glee, Mineral Veil

I am not a product promoter, or so I thought. Reflecting now on products I use and love it appears I have discretely nudged and encouraged their use.

My latest product promotion is Bare Minerals. Ruth and Danya for years have tried to get me to try. Last month I caved in with new pressure and love it!!

So, Jane's Favorites (Shameless Product Promotion/in no particular order)

1. Blackberry Pearl (use 200 times a day)
2. Kiss Me Mascara (use once a day)
3. Bare Minerals (use once a day)
4. Loreal 825 (use 2-3 times a day)
5. Magic Bullet (use once a day now that Chris taught me how to use)
6. Ryobi Cordless drill (use as often as I can)
7. Pampered Chef round stone (use 4-5 times a week)
8. Aveda PhomollientTM Styling Foam (use once a day unless I dont wash my hair that day)

There its boldly off my chest.

New Bloggers Club

For months my brother has complained about bloggers. What a crazy world with nothing to say. Yesterday I get notification that he has posted on my blog (the first ever!!). Excited as can be I notify the Vice President of the HCBC who notifies me that he has deleted the comment. Hmmmm

An hour later he calls. Apparently there was discussion in his home that folks maybe offended, not by his comment but by the fact that he now has a blog that could be considered "Sarcastic".

I went to the blog and laughed out loud. Because these masculine antibloggers now have an alliance I am officially welcoming them to the World of Blogging.

Love you all!

Same time next year

Hey. I've been to the Year 3000

I love the Jonas Brothers. Especially their song: I've been to the Year 3000. Not only does it stick in your head but it can easily get stuck in others. Today Jessica and I were singing it:

I've been to the year 3000
Not much has changed but they live under water
And your great, great, great granddaughter
She's doing fine

Britney pipes up and says. "This song drives me crazy. It can't even be true."

"What do you mean sweetheart?" says her mother.

Britney states, "Well, if it is your great, great, great granddaughter it can't be the year 3000. People only live an average of 100 years so it really only could be 300 years and that would be the year 2300. I hate this song".

Nice. It's stuck in my head and now I am doing math problems.

I've been to the year 3000
Not much has changed but they live under water
And your great, great, great granddaughter
She's doing fine

Give me an A

Imagine my disdain when I arrived at the airport (an hour early) and while calmly waiting at the gate, sipping my chai tea, stealing a sip of white chocolate mocha when I discover that the "NATIONAL CHEERLEADER CHAMPIONS" (all 30 of them) would be on the plane.

Ok, so it wasnt the cheerleaders that annoyed near as much as the cheerleader mothers talking non-stop about their precious trophy winners. (Non-stop flight good, non-stop cheerleader promotion bad).

Oh yes, "they were hot as apple pie."

My lucky ring

One of the first major purchases (over $100) I made when I graduated from x-ray school was an opal ring. I reminds me of independence and goal setting. So I wear it on any occasion that I would need good fortune, whenever I have a manicure or to just have a happy day. It always works :).

Oh, and yes: my hands do look like my mothers

How do I look?

While entertaining Jessica in the car today I told her she could draw faces on the kids on the girlscout cookie box. Sometime during the drawing period she asked if she could draw on "her face too". Half listening I figured it was someone else on the box.

Surprise, Oh my

Imagine my surprise when I open the shower door and Jessica says, "I got your camera, too bad you are all wet and can't take it from me. Guess you better smile".

Yeah, and you should see the photo. The joys of motherhood.

You know who you are

Good is always better than bad.
Thanks for the joy and love you have brought to me.

A typical Friday Afternoon

At the end of the week the back of the car is terrible. 4 lunch boxes, 2 violins, 2 back packs, 6 jackets, dance clothes, 5 pairs of shoes, 1 guitar. Further buried under there is also girl scout cookies, my make up, school papers, binders, music bag, clogging shoes, ballet shoes, tap shoes, 2 suit jackets. Oh I found my badge.
