Just Thinking....

about not blogging anymore. I've been thinking about it for awhile and I keep going back and forth on the issue. Kind of enjoying not doing it at the moment, but also like to keep in touch with those of you far away....hmmm......decisions, decisions. Maybe it is because my life is boring and I don't have much to share....who knows? I have been having a bit of success in the gym lately. Got rid of 2% of my winter body fat over the past few weeks which makes me happy. Just 2 more % until I am back to % I am most happy with. Anyway, that is all for now. Hope you are all having a lovely week.

A few photos

Forgot to take my camera to the asian festival on Saturday so took a few pics when we got home. Miss E in her hat/fan (it folds to become a fan) from the Cambodian booth.

And Bella with the henna on the hand.

Don't really have much else to say today...have a good day!

The weekend in review are you all doing. Seems like it has been a busy week. To start things off...a layout....easter....girls dyeing eggs.

Yesterdays events: we played soccer in the a.m. we played a very nasty team that has kicked our butts badly in prior years...however this year it was close & we probably beat them. i think about every girl cried at least once...a few was good soccer =). we went to the asian heritage festival. The girls had a great time...we ate good food...nepalese momos (dumplings with spicy red sauce), cambodian chicken wings, thai pad kaphrao(?), and some afghanistan something or other (don't ask me when afghanistan become an asian country). We watched some dancing. We bought a cambodian hat for emma and bella got her hand decorated with henna. i'll show some pics soon.
Todays events: Church. Lunch in the yard....the girls wanted a picnic today for mothers we went to hy-vee and bought lunchables....they were in heaven. Went to the funeral home...I unfortunately had a young patient that died. It was very sad and unexpected. We then went to the botanical center and browsed the plants. Made a trip to Target this evening to buy non fun stuff like shampoo. The below picture was taken today at our picnic...the lovely Mr. Tripod did a great job once again.

One more thing...for all my fellow cooking light lovers...just thought I'd share. Successes so far this month with the May 2007 issue: Fiesta Rice p 194. Pasta Primavera p. 178. Vegetarian Taquitos p. 198. Not so great: Quick and Easy Pansit p. 195 (not enough sauce....very dry) and Stove Top Mac and cheese p. 185(I've tried this before as this is a reprint recipe and I believe I thought it was good...this time, not so good...girls refused to eat it). So anyone else try anything worth recommending?

Finally i blog......

Sorry guys....i've been a loser again, haven't been blogging much. Here is a layout I made tonight....emma picking flowers for me. Just as a note...the flowered paper is stuff I made originally for Paper Heart Studio...but that never went I decided to cut it up and use it.

In other news....
My ticket to Cambodia has been purchased, my passport is here....guess I'm going =)
I don't think I've mentioned this before but we are having an exchange student living with us this next year. We have been assigned a girl from Kazakhstan named Antonina....kind of excited about it, should be fun.
Well that is all for tonight...hope you have a great day!

Page 2 of House Book

Here is page 2 of my house mini book....the official occupants page. That is about all I've accomplished so far. In other news, my lovely car now has 4 new very expensive tires on it, very pretty tires, but very expensive. Well that is all for now....have a lovely day.
