Look what I got (and you can get too...for FREE)

The other day I told you about how you can have Santa send a little note to your kiddos for free through Tiny Prints. Well, I just thought I would share what we got in the mail yesterday with you:

The kids were SOOO excited! Armour (my 5 year old) was running around the house yelling "I am on the GOOD list!! YESSSS!!!" I had to point out that it said to "Keep up the good work" so he would have to still work to stay there. He then said "Yeah Yeah, I know, but for now I am just happy I am there!!!"

In case you missed how to do this, here is the info again:

1. Like Tiny Prints on Facebook.

2. Click on the "Santa Cards" tab on the left and follow the instructions from there!

Have fun with this one! I sure did!

Troublesome Tuesday...

I am trying to be a better kid (or old lady as it may be). I want to do things better-have a cleaner home, write a better blog, help my kids to be the best they can be in school and sports, lose all the "baby weight" I have put on over the years...Boy am I failing.

Often my husband has said that he wants to be able to do his very best at what he is doing all the time, but with medical school, a family, and church responsibilities, he felt like he was only barely passing at everything. I know how he feels right now...Today has brought with it it's own challenges...But the big picture things are the ones I am trying to focus in on and get motivated to do...

Here are the goals I made for the next few weeks and how I am doing:

1-Get my house CLEANED UP before we go to Disney is messier than ever and I have a long way to go...we DID get lots of laundry caught up, the messiest room (the girls bedroom) MOSTLY done, and the kitchen is pretty on to the other billion things around here.

2-Work out and lose this weight-make it a priority-so I bought a family YMCA membership and have been going 3+ times a week. I am doing OK on this one, but it is not getting any easier to work out or to go...sigh...(I am losing some weight though)

3-Get some freezer meals made for us and for my sister in law who will have her baby in the next week...not even started

4-Get some great deals up on this blog each day...with all else going on it has not been everyday-I am sure you noticed.

5-Help my kids transition into school. Well, after day 2 where one kids barfed all over the class and another had a fight, it was uphill from there. We still have some adjusting to do, but at least my Kindergartner doesn't cry each time he gets on the bus in the morning anymore...that's somethin' right?!

6-Prepare and pack for, not done...

Maybe getting this all in writing and posted will make me more accountable...let's hope so because with a 5 month old on his 5th (or 6th?) ear infection and my lack of sleep, I feel unmotivated to do anything today...anyone else feeling that same lack of motivation?

Friday, August 26, 2011 this!

My cousin, Laura shared this link on Facebook yesterday and it was far too funny to keep to myself. I have not laughed this hard in a long time! Please go read these 15 Funniest Autocorrects. There is some swearing in this (consider yourself warned). It is HILARIOUS!

I am a Real HouseMom of Douglas County...seriously...

Wow-Am I really a "Real HouseMom of Douglas County"? It appears I am...I am just not totally sure what that really means...I do think it means that after the first round of competition/games on Saturday I will need to have you all go on and vote for me...if I is my issue:
I AM a real HouseMom, and as it turns out, I have 3 kids currently playing sports, and guess what? 2 of them have conflicting games at 9:30 am. So, even with Wes off work, I am not sure how we work this and have me competing from 10-noon across town...sigh...

I am sure if I do compete though you it will be hilarious to watch me try to do the things they are having the HouseMoms do. The Village Pointe website says:

The Real HouseMoms of Douglas County is a fun, fresh contest for all moms to enter! Women from around the city will compete in selected areas such as:
- Grocery Shopping/Meal Planning
- Scheduling
- Carpooling
- School Lunch-Making
- Laundry
- Youth Sports Knowledge

Um...Laundry, really-wow-I hope they don't stop by the house and see the 8 clean, dry, unfolded loads in my living room (actually I folded one this morning so we are down to 7 now...)

I am sure this will be fun, but seriously, based on these categories, I am doubting my ability to win this thing...

Money Saving Tip: Ideas to Freshen up Leftovers

This may not look like much to you, but it is one of my favorite ways to use left over rice. And I ate it for lunch today. I love when I can find a way to freshen up a leftover and enjoy it again-which BTW saves me a lot of money!
This week so far, we did BBQ Chicken on Monday. We had family over, and I intentionally BBQed more meat than I needed by a couple of breasts. I served it with lots of garlic bread and breadsticks, a tomato basil salad, and (my all time fave side dish) "funeral potatoes." I am not actually sure what people call "funeral potatoes" outside my church-we call them that because they are a popular side dish to bring and serve to the family after a funeral. It is essentially a hashbrown casserole with sour cream, cream of mushroom soup, shredded cheese, corn flakes and butter-easy and delectable! (If anyone wants my NOT low fat recipe for these-send me a note and I will email it to you).

So, after dinner Monday, the salad and potatoes were gone, but I had chicken and garlic bread left. On Tuesday, Wes and I cut the 3 chicken breasts we had left into strips, added some frozen (EASY) stir fry veggies and sauce, cooked up some rice and called it dinner!

We had rice left, so for lunch I made the EASIEST yummy left over rice treat/meal (I usually eat it as a dessert or treat, but today I ate it for lunch). It is my mom's recipe and I guess you could call it a poor mans rice pudding. It is just leftover rice, cinnamon and sugar to your taste and milk. Microwave for like 2 minutes and enjoy!! (My other favorite thing for left over rice is fried rice)

Tonight we are having Spaghetti and sauce with corn on the cob. I will be serving the left over garlic bread and garlic breadsticks with it!

I love "repurposing" food! It is the best when the kids have no clue they are eating leftovers!! What are your best leftover reuses?!


Send your kids a FREE card from SANTA (reminder to be good?!)

This is a fun little freebie for parents to make/order for their kids. You can make a personalized letter from Santa to send your kids now for FREE from Tiny Prints.

Here is how to get yours:

1. Like Tiny Prints on Facebook.

2. Click on the "Santa Cards" tab on the left and follow the instructions from there!

Have fun with this one!

Baby in his Bumbo

On Monday, I told you about funny named baby products that I love. I included a picture of my baby in his "Mamaroo". Well, I realized that many of you don't know what a "Bumbo" is so I thought I would show you some pictures of my baby in his:

My little (or not so little) guy, as big as he is is actually still not quite 5 months old, and he is NOT sitting on his own yet. The "Bumbo" is a seat that helps non sitters sit up so you can do things like feed them! SWEET!
