Five for Friday!!

It’s Friday! It’s Friday! Woohoo! Where have you been all week my dear friend?

Since it’s Friday, you know what that means….

I am going to start off with a failure. You know when you see something and you think “oh yeah I could do that!” 
Then you get all motivated and excited and prepared. I’m talking about a new diet people. Oh I was so excited about this! My husband was on board, we were super motivated! Now before I keep talking about this, I want you to know that I have no will power. NONE. My husband is the rock. He’s the one that is supposed to be motivated. Guess how many days we lasted??? 
3 days.
On the end of the third day my husband sent me a text message that said, “This is dumb.”
That was the end. We ate burgers for dinner. 
Put this on the major fail list right below the juicing diet. I blame the fact that we a busy. We aren’t good planners. We weren’t prepared.
We failed:(

On a happy note, my computers are FINALLY hooked up AND the kiddos are finally getting to use them. They have been out of commission since I moved rooms this summer and the kiddos were SUPER excited to get to use them.

Here they are practicing math facts. It was hilarious! Every time one of them got 100% they yelled out “YES!” It is great! I have six computers total so they have to do a rotation but they still LOVE it!

This is my baby. His name is Daxter.

Now. I have two adorable children. They are my babies. BUT this baby has snuggled with me since he was a puppy and he came right after we had to put down our other baby boy, Pal. SO, Daxter has a special place in our heart. Now, this boy is a Boxer/Pitbull mix. DO you know what that means????? BOXER people. SENSITIVE SKIN! He ALWAYS has a rash. He just went to the vet for the THIRD time this summer! He is now on three medications and ear drops. Poor guy! He wants you to feel very bad for him…he’s a LITTLE dramatic.

Gilmore Girls is now on Netflix people!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!! It is by far my favorite! I am watching it right now…as I type. It’s so fantastic! I can watch them ALL with NO commercials! Come on people! I KNOW you’re excited!! Now, I can only watch it when my husband’s at work. It’s not that he won’t watch it. You know when you really like something and then someone sits there and makes fun of it??? Yeah. I don’t like it either. He’s not allowed to watch it anymore. BUT, I am watching it now because he’s not home:)
Finally. We are working on a new passage:) I am excited about this one because it is getting me excited for Thanksgiving. I am a black Friday shopper. My mom and I are the crazy ones that are standing in a huge, long line trying to get some good deals. Funny…I usually buy things OTHER then Christmas presents…Anywhooo…we are super excited to offer this passage. We are hoping that it will be posted by Monday. We hope you all LOVE it!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am going to watch Gone Girl!! SO excited!! Have a great Friday:)

    Oh my gosh your diet fail as #1 was maybe my favorite. That would be so us. I can hear my husband say, "This is dumb." AND I can feel myself looking forward to burgers for dinner. You're not alone… 🙂
    So glad I found your blog!

    Your number one made me laugh. My husband will go along with any eating thing I do… I think because he knows it ain't gonna last 🙂 See you around! Kathleen

      That's the same as mine. He's so supportive! I was shocked I lasted longer than him. I am always the first one to cave!!

    I agree with Carolyn! That was TOOO funny! My fiance wouldn't diet to begin with although he could stand to lose a few. He would tell me it's dumb right out of the starting gate THEN serve US burgers (probably stuffed with feta cheese!). But that's why I love him! I'm looking forward to reading more and and glad I discovered your blog. I teach 2nd and 3rd this year. 🙂 Shelley

    I have to agree with everyone on the diet fail. I've been there and done that. It's hard to do. I love your blog background by the way.

    Agree on the diet plan- but I am going in about two hours to eat supper—-at the Dairy Queen. Yes, that's right. We have ice cream for supper every Friday night. I also love, love, love your blog colors!
    Have a great weekend!
