Target and Grown-Up Dinners February 27, 2006

Filed under: General Life,Parenting — countryfan @ 12:45 am

So we found a dress we liked. Not the one that I originally had my eye one, but one i found at Target. It’s white and lilac and it is so pretty ๐Ÿ˜€ Abby is lucky having her birthday around Easter, I get to choose from all the pretty Easter dresses for a cute party dress ๐Ÿ˜€ I also bought her a cute hat to go with it, and I’ll also use the hat for the summer too. With her being blonde and blue-eyed, I know she’ll need it and lots of sunscreen, LOL.

We had Brandie and Kalyn over for dinner. It was very nice and civilized. We sat around the dining table, got the candles out and had nice adult conversation. Made a nice chance from talking about babies all the time, haha. Nick cooked pork medallions with an onion, garlic and tomate sauce and I made homemade lemon merangue pie. I was very pleased with myself ๐Ÿ˜€

Since it worked last time, (I got two new members to join!) here’s the link to Ace Young Fans:

 

Birthdays, Printers and Ace Young :) February 25, 2006

And now we start with the major rundown. It's getting closer and closer to birthday party time, and I'm getting really excited. I can't believe it's been almost a year since I became a mum. It's insane! Time truly flies by so fast! I'm going out with Nick's mom tomorrow to pick out a party dress for Abby. I've seen one at Walmart in yellow and it's gorgeous. The only problem is that at the Walmart near here, they havn't got the size I need (18 months). So we're going to go and find another Walmart tomorrow and find the dress in the size I need. I have my fingers crossed that we can find it!

The party theme is Care Bears ๐Ÿ˜€ Pink and yellow with gingham and #1's. Hehe. It's going to be the birthday I wanted as a kid but never got. That's one of the best things about kids, you can give them everything that you never had as a kid. Eeeee ๐Ÿ˜€

We had to go out and but a new printer recently. Our old Epson decided to give up the ghost, so I trudged out in the freezing cold to Walmart to get a new printer. I found a really decent HP all-in-one for about $70. I thought that was a really decent price ๐Ÿ˜€ I scanned a bunch of photos in and they're on my Flickr site, if you care to look ๐Ÿ˜€

One last thing, AI. OMG, how hot is Ace?! He makes me drool everytime I see him. Okay, I drooled at Con too, but this is different. He doesn't do annoying things like Constantine did. Pure hotness- plus a great, great singer to boot, way better than Constantine ever was. Are you a fan? Please join my friend's Ace forum- Ace Young Fans. And tell them that ProudBrit referred you. It really is a great forum, and there's lots of hot photos on there of him ๐Ÿ˜€

And lets finish off this post with a pic of the hotness:

I’m currently waiting for Nick to get back from running errands so I can get off to work and go to Qdoba for dinner- I’ve fallen in love with their chicken nachos…mmmm ๐Ÿ˜€

Abby has got really talkative recently. She’s started saying things like “no”, “up”, “yup” and she accidently said a mild swear word…so now we’re having to watch our language around her :p

I really don’t have a lot to say at the moment. I’ll think about what to type up while I’m at work and after a beer or two, haha. Hey, every working mother needs some alcohol to relieve the stress :p And I don’t care what you preachy alcohol-free people out there say. It is not evil, it is not a drug and it is not addictive if you do it in moderation ๐Ÿ˜‰

My brother on the other hand…well, I’ll save that for later.

Abby’s napping, so I’ve got the chance to type something up before she wakes.

I was reading a book yesterday d it said how when kids are napping, you ought to do something for yourself. Hmmm, so what have I done? Dishes, laundry, putting away stuff. It is for me though. It drives me CRAZY if I don’t get it done. Nick likes to pile the dishes on the top of the fridge, and it just bugs me when I cannot find any plates for dinner…ha.

I learn’t last night at work that I only have another four weeks left at work. No, I’m not getting fired, I work at a bowling alley and I waitress for the leagues- and they all end in four weeks. And I doubt that I’m going to get re-hired for the fall. I’m 99.9% sure. I’m the best waitress they have ever had (I’m not just saying that, I have had the bowlers tell me this), but I’m not what management are looking for. Fucking bastard wants a big-titted, blonde, porn star with very little clothing waitressing. Yeah, like he’s gonna find someone like that who’ll work for $6 an hour..ha. Good luck with that smart ass.

I hate tax season. Every year we have problems, because of some small screw-up. Last year it was because I didn’t have a social security number yet, this year it’s because we need to file some kind of Homestead form which the landlord has to sign. Gah…stupid IRS ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Just a quick entry with some photos of me playing my new guitar (yes, I bought the guitar). I’m really not that good at the moment, I know six notes, so don’t ask me to play anything ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ve been looking into lessons this evening, to give myself a head start ๐Ÿ˜€
