Another Weekend Come and Gone

Its Sunday once again. Another busy weekend comes to a close. This month seems to be zipping by.Its almost October,and yet my Halloween decorations are still sitting in the basement. Going down to the basement is a job in itself!!! Maybe that is why I have been putting it off. One day maybe I will write about how I got my basement all organized...Then you will know miracles can happen!

We made our way up to the Somero Pumpkin Farm yesterday.The weather was kinda depressing,but when you smell that fall smell...It doesn't matter what the weather is like. Their farm goes on for acres and its just breathtaking. Its a really nice spot to take pictures.He always has a spot made up to take pictures. Every year its in a different place and we get our picture taken. I like looking back on how big the kids get as the years go by.

Today was a day saved on the calendar to get all our summer things put away.Its kind of depressing because the weather has been so warm. My flower beds are just so full,they look better now than they did in the summer! Now the yard looks so empty with out all the garden things...But its time for a change....Halloween is next!!!

Happy Fall Ya'll!!!

The Weekend!!!

What a great weekend! Great friends,great food and a great game. It was just unreal....The Packer flag blowing around was just so neat to see. There were so many people at the football game. All those Packer fans watching the Cowboys kickin some ass! It was great to watch!!

What was more fun though, was spending it with a great group of people. We had a great time and we didn't even have to get all drunk. Of course I did have my margarita as promised,but it was a nice calm night. I did have a chance to hit up my favorite stores and shopped way too much. I bought a few things to replace my old diningroom decor. In which Scott and Bob will never let me forget. Thanks guys!!!

The painting was started in the dining room before I left and I am almost done with that room. I just love the new color.It is so bright and cheerful. Now I just have to find some new window treatments and I will be done. Wish me luck on that!!!

So....Its been a good week....I had a chance to spend some adult time with my husband and our friends and the kids got to realize how much they really do love us!!!

My suitcase is packed with my Tony Romo jersey and I am ready to get outta here! Nick and I are heading to Greenbay to see the Cowboys and the Packers. There will be pillow fights and laughing ,and I just can't wait. An adult weekend is in order! Scott,Bob and Neher,Joe,Shelly,Nick and I are heading out in the morning. I have my heart set on a nice cold Margarita with dinner at the Texas Roadhouse and some time to reflex on adult things and Margarita's!

Of course there is also shopping at a real mall! My favorite stores are Yankee Candle and Torrid. Yankee Candle is all festive this time of year with all the fall scents and halloween decorations. I think my favorite scent is the Pumpkin Spice. Torrid is a plus sized clothing store that has all the cool things for us thick girls.

Its gonna be a good weekend!!!
Goooo COWBOYS!!!!

Its all about me!!!

Hmmm! Since starting this,I haven't really said anything about who I am or much about what makes me tick!!!

So,here I am. I am a mother of 3. Daymen is my first born.He is 16 and quite a handful these days. People claim it is a phase he is going through,but I am not sure. Then there is Coleton he is 10 almost 11. He is a pretty good kid.Well mannered,and loves World of Warcraft. Nikiah is the baby and is almost 7. She is into all the girly things. Shoes are her favorite!! Or maybe that is my favorite thing!!

I have been with Nick,who I married in Aug. of 2000, for almost 18 years. For the most part him and I are like best friends.Yeah,there is an occasional arguement.But we seem to be on the same wave length about what we want for our family and for us.

There isn't much I don't like in life.I like to be with my family,with my friends....I love camping and being outdoors. I love gardening.Sitting in my yard in my hammock is where you will find me at some part of the day in the summer. I like to listen to all the outdoor noises and take in the views of my yard. I love taking pictures and looking for different spots to go and snap away.
I am a sister to 6 girls and 3 boys.....I have too many nephews and neices to keep tracked. I have a very special nephew who is more like my brother. Troy is very special to me and I love to spend my days with him showing him how life can be. He has CP and is wheelchair dependent.

Hmmm! What else...I am very much into tattoo's and body peircings. If it were up to me,I'd have my whole body tattooed!!! I have 11 tattoos and would love to add to them.

I love to go on vacation with friends and my family. Sometimes its just Nick and I and thats okay too,but I like to create the memories with my children.Sometimes it gets chaotic,but that is what life is all about. That is what happens when you take kids on vacation!!!!
So,there....That is me!!!

Living life...

Its really all about letting your hair down. Driving down a country road with your windows wide open and the music blairing!!! And that is what I did today. Yep!! I sang out loud on the top of my lungs. My favorite song at the moment is "Want to" by Sugarland. I can play that song over and over,singing my heart out. I wonder if anyone was out in the yards today while I was driving.....Poor Souls!

Today was a beautiful fallish kind of day.The leaves are starting to turn here in the U.P. and its sad to know snow is just around the corner. But to see the back roads on a fall day with the sun shining is just breath taking. The smells of the leaves just brings me back to when we were kids. Raking the leaves into piles and jumping into them....

I hope tomorrow is just as beautiful!!!

Football at the Mihelich's

It's Monday Night Football and dem Boy's just scored another...Come on Felix!!! It's any wonder how my children are going to get any sleep with Nick yelling. Boy! Does he get going. He is always so excited for his Cowboys to come on. He gets his Romo jersey out and ready to put on after he showers. The house has to be quiet when the game comes on. And then the yelling starts....I don't think I have ever heard so many Fbombs in my life then I do on game night. Jumping up and down and running in place..."Come on Felix....Keep them legs running!!!" and they score...All is quiet for a minute or two. So that is Monday Football at the Mihelich's,and I am sure its the same way across the U.S. LET'S GO COWBOYS!!!

Visiting With Family

Today was a rainy cold day...But it was a nice day to sit and visit with people. Nick's side of the family was having a birthday party for their boys. Perfect day for it! I like to sit around and listen to what's going on in other peoples lives. I like seeing how big all of our children are getting.

We don't all get together that often and I often tell myself that I am going to make more time for my friends and family,but then life happens and it goes on the back burner. Maybe with school here and my ability to do things while the kids are in school,there will be more time for people instead of chores.

Speaking of chores,I compiled a list of what I WANT done in this house.I may have to wait until next year for that family and friend time!!! I have a home that could potentially be beautiful if I just get everything done that I want to have done. But then I get it all done and I am ready for another change! But see I want to be the one making the changes.Learning how to put the molding up and doing the new hardwoood flooring.

Well, for today it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. My brother in law and sister in law have a beautiful family and a warm inviting home. So,no matter what the weather was like outside it was a beautiful way to spend the day!!!

Our Home

Where to start? I just recently painted our livingroom. Its a deep brown on the window wall and a creamy white on the rest. I love the way it turned out. I accented in red,but want to add some orange. Everything is all coming together in that room...Now,I want to change the kitchen and dining area. I want a creamy orange in the dining room and incorporate the browns and reds from the livingroom. I am not sure what to do for the kitchen. I really want new counter tops,but just don't know how to start that process. Maybe once I change those,the wall color will come to me then.

It seems like I get things coming together and then I wanna change it again. I am never satisfied with the work when its all over!!! There are so many beautiful colors out there. I just want them all in my home!

Well, wish me luck on the dining room. I think I am going to start the painting process soon!!!

Nikiah and her loose tooth

A little wiggle and a little twist...Out popped her tooth! Nikiah lost her first tooth tonight. She was so afraid of it falling out. Of course it didn't come out willingly. With a little help from mom, there was the tooth ready for the tooth fairy. After we got the tooth out she giggled and giggled at how silly she looked. Of course she ran through out the house sharing the great news that she can finally catch the tooth fairy. Everyone that called on the phone or stopped at the house,Nikiah had to show them her tooth and the little space it left. Ahh,my baby is getting so big!!!

First Day Of School

Tomorrow is the first day of school for the 2008-2009 school year. It doesn't seem possible that it is that time of year already. I noticed this weekend the leaves are changing alittle already. So fall is right around the corner. With school starting tomorrow it makes me think of how I want to decorate for fall and Halloween. I love to decorate for the seasons. My kids like to help too. I have so many ideas for them to help me with.Its going to be a fun fall season.

What is not fun though is trying to get these kids in bed and thinking about trying to wake them up early. The thoughts of doing homework again. The fighting with the kids to get their work done. But tomorrow we,like parents across the U.S., are gonna party like rock stars knowing school is back in session!!!
