>>YAWN<< This has been a crazy busy week. I prepared all week for a craft fair yesterday. It went really well too. Sold out of a couple of things, and even got some outside orders! One of which is to do favors for a wedding. So much for avoiding the wedding industry for a while.
We also celebrated, although kind of on the fly since there really wasn't time, our 7 yr wedding anniversary. Yep, its already been 7 yrs since I landed me the best hubby ever! Seriously, I am truly blessed, and God definitely knew what He was doing when He brought me hubby. And 3 kids, and 7 moves later we are still going strong. So, Thank you hubby for 7 awesome years, you are amazing! I can't wait to see what God has in store for us in the years to come.
On the kid front, TJ is eagerly awaiting his 5th birthday, 5 days before Christmas. Ever since his brother had a Monster Truck birthday last year, this has been his greatest desire. And has continued to remind me of this for the past 9 mos. Since I have been becoming more proficient in the baking department, I told him I could make his cake even cooler. But no, he wanted none of that. He wants his cake to look EXACTLY like his brothers. Chocolate marshmallows as boulders and all.
Thankfully Little Guy wants a Pokemon birthday so I can exercise my right to overachieve in the cake department!
For those of you with children, you know they can come up with some funny things sometimes. Thursday, my Little Guy was UBER cranky. And WHINY. My least favorite mood in him. I kept trying to deal with him, while Train Junkie sat quietly next to me watching Tom and Jerry. I finally just told LG to just knock it off, I didn't want to hear the whining anymore!
Tj looked up and me and said, "I'm whining on the inside!"
I thought I would answer a question for Missy asked me about how am I staying away from the Diet Coke? I have to say it can be really tough. We do keep it in the house since hubby drinks it too. But we also have bottled water. And also lemonade. When we go out, and stop to get something to eat, I usually try to have a bottle of water with me. I don't want to waste it so I am less likely to order a soda if I already have a drink with me. Yesterday at the craft fair, I had brought a bottle of water with me from home. (When it comes to water, I am infinitely picky so I tend to take my own. Spring water icks me out!) Anyway, when they were going around taking lunch orders, the lady asked if I wanted a drink, I saw they had soda. But then looked over and remembered my water and told her "No thanks, I already have a drink." And if we eat out in a restaurant, which isn't all that often, I will usually get Strawberry Lemonade since its my absolute favorite and I can't just pull one out of the fridge at home.
Now I will leave you with some pics of my table from the craft fair....
