I finally found my cupcake cake pan at a chef store in the mall!! Im so excited

Photography Studio

Well it's that time again...when Jim and I get the crazy idea in our heads to take the children to The Picture People and try, yet again, to have their pictures taken. Once again, like the many failed attempts prior, it did not work out the way we had hoped for. Gianna had a huge tantrum and threw herself onto the ground. Thankfully I was able to get one of her and Olivia and one of the three. The pic below is of her right before she had her attack and tried wrecking the poor ladies setup. Thankfully I was able to purchase the, like I said, one nice pic of each. Since they were kind enough to email me all of my proofs I can post the one where she evil eyes the photographer.
She's A Little Teapot!

Survival Kit

So my husbands corp he works for had classes all week and hired a motivational speaker come in to break it up. The instructor gave my husband a survival kit in a bag and he brought it home and gave it to me. (im miss negative)
The survival kit came in a small clear zip bag and the yellow piece of paper in the bag filled with odd, random items read: remind you to pick the good qualities in everyone, including yourself.

RUBBER remind you to be flexible. Things might not always go the way you want, but it can be worked out.

BAND remind you to heal hurt feelings-either yours or someones else's. remind you everyone makes mistakes, that it's okay-we learn from our errors.

CANDY remind you everyone needs a hug or compliment every day- give them out regularly. remind you that you are worth a mint to your co-workers and team members. remind you to stick with it. If you do, you can accomplish anything.

JOLLY remind you to have FUN. remind you to list your blessings everyday.

TEA remind you to take time to relax daily and go over the list of God's blessings. This is what makes life worth living every minute of the day.

I finally bought the ingredients for a couple recipes for us to use The Personal Trainer Cooking game for the DS!!!

My body makeover

So last week I bought a Total Body Cleanse from GNC and Acai Berry. Im ecstatic to say it has really been working out. I sleep better at night, have more energy throughout the day, and I've lost a couple pounds.
Since Ive had the Mirena removed Ive been in much better spirits and my axiety/breathing problems lessened greatly.

So I got this idea I was going to try out a arobics program with alot of strength training, oh it was hard. Im not going to give up, I can afford 20 minute workouts a couple times a week to get my body back. Wow am I out of shape! Im really hurting today lol

Every month I write out what bills we owe and balances etc. It was getting so out of control...we needed things, wanted things, had debts to pay. So we really tackled it and Im happy to say we handled it! Yay!!

We made a couple Sams Club trips and bought all of our cleaning supplies, toiletries, baby care needs, and food. We planned on painting the whole downstairs here in a couple weeks so we stashed away a couple hundred for that, the money for the castle beds for the girls, I paid for the Disney World trip, and all of our bills are paid up to March in advance.

Im happy to announce we still have a couple paychecks yet to come in February and can save! We are debt free :)

Shopping with brother

I went to SHV to shop with my brother today and finally bought myself a good pair of comfy running shoes! Gianna more clothes, of course. Jimmy a new Wii game, Jim shoes as well. And Bath & Body Works stuff! I always buy Wallflowers but I decided to try these Scentport diffusers. I bought the Sandalwood Vanilla for my bedroom.
Lets just say after a hour Jim and I both were ready to gag, so I moved it out into the hallway. By the next morning all three bedrooms, bathroom, hallway and down the stairs smelled like Sandalwood Vanilla. And unlike other plug ins its still filled up to the top, I think we have a couple months to go before it runs out. That was a really good deal
