The Little Things

Back to work for me! I love it, but trying to get back into a routine!

This morning my son was getting ready for school and says " Mom, I don't have any pants to wear to school, no jeans or sweats!" I looked and there wasn't any clean. He had no pants or sweats in his dresser. I couldn't believe it, I just did laundry on Sunday, however, my son is known for not ever putting his stuff in the baskets where they belong. So, thank goodness for the pair of jeans I bought him for Christmas. He did have pants to wear afterall!! It also doesn't help that he is constantly growing. I guess I better get him some new clothes and SOON!!

Welcome Winter

The weather forecasters didn't miss this one! A winter storm has rolled in and boy did it deliver! The kids had fun today and so did Zena! Welcome to our winter wonderland...in Minnesota!!

Doesn't look like it will melt anytime soon! The temps are not looking to warm up this next week... so, this white stuff might just stick around!

I Flaked

My little E was awarded with the Citizen of the Month award and yesterday they had a short award ceremony at school and I missed it!! I flaked and thought it was at a different time!! I am so thankful that my neighbor was there taking pictures because her son was also awarded with the Citizen of the Month award. I am so proud of her!!!

Showing off their medals of honor!

Monster of a Day

Monster Dash was a success! It was a crisp morning. I believe it was in the 30s when we started. The hardest was trying to stay warm until it was time to run. Hubby and I before the race!
We were waiting to start! Again freezing!!

My sister and I at the finish! We all ran the 10 mile race. I finished in 1 hour 41 minutes. I was the last of the group to finish. I was happy with it. I would of liked to do better, but there is always next time!!
We were warm after the race, but with the winds blowing, we didn't stay warm for long. We would of been fine if we didn't have to wait almost 1.5 hours to get on a shuttle to get back to our car. That was a disaster!! I think I was frozen for the whole day. My stomach even hurt from shaking so much.
I will run it next year, but will dress up like a whole bunch of people did. There were so many cool costumes and creative ones too!

Too Long!

I finally pampered myself for the first time in seriously like a year!
What did I do? I made a haircut appointment and today I went in and cut a GREAT cut! But the best part was that part of this wonderful haircut was a head massage, shoulder rub, and hand massage. That was such a welcome treat.
So onto the chair for the hair wash and conditioning treatment. While in the chair enjoying my hair washing experience, I had a feeling this may happen. The stylist asked me if I have ever gotten my eyebrows waxed ( I must of looked like a unkept house wive or something) and yes I have and I may have not had them professionally done in a year, but I have plucked them and shaped them and no I didn't have a unibrow, I just was lazy.
I will post a photo tomorrow because right now I am getting ready for a day of work tomorrow. I haven't worked in so long, I am actually excited! It is just the start of the full time gig I will be starting in a few weeks.
But with this new look and a really cute new sweater I am confident that I will NOT look like an unkept house wive anymore!!
Oh and the hairstylist told me I had ponytail damage! How crazy is that!
