Lazy days of summer...

We actually made it to the Lake this summer! Saturday was *GORGEOUS* with a slight breeze... well, before the storm blew in, but we had already been there a few hours, so it was fine. I, of course, took like a million pics... just having fun taking different shots, using different settings, etc. Thought I'd share a few! :)

Lil' Tad being silly! That's SIL & friend on jet ski in background.




Tad's very 1st jet ski ride w/Daddy! He LOVED it! :)




Hubby showin' off!




I ♥ this one!




Here comes the storm...

Proud Mama

I felt the need to do some showin' off this morning! :)
Lil' Tad's *glamour* (not sure if hubby would like this term! ha!) shots came in at school yesterday and I absolutely love them! And I'm not biased AT ALL! ;)

Thursday 13


Another *random* Thursday 13!

1. i busted my butt yesterday morning. i.am.so.sore! the floor was slippery in the bathroom... (prob. from hubby's hair products! UGH!) and my feet just came out from right under me. and of course, it was all in slow-motion. ha! hit my back & neck on the corner of the cabinets. it didn't really hurt THAT bad at the time, but i'm definitely feeling it today. as a matter of fact, when i'm done w/this... i'm headed back to the couch.

2. i hope i feel better for my girl's night this friday! ha! you know i *CAN'T* miss that! i don't get the opportunity very often! ;) it's my friend, T's bachelorette party! so you know it's gonna be some wild times! *woot! woot!*

3. one of Tad's best friends is having her b-day party on Saturday. Her Mom is renting one of those inflatable water slides & all of the kiddos are SOOO excited!


4. i hope a week & a half is enough notice for my sister's wedding shower! it snuck up on us... and i JUST got them out yesterday for the shower on the 27th! oops! most of the girl's that will be coming already knew that it would be soon, so it shouldn't affect anything... hopefully!

5. i can't believe my BABY sis is getting hitched!! only 31 days 'til Vegas! maybe i need one of those countdown thingies, too! heehee :)

6. Tad is loving his new bunkbed! i say bunkbed... not plural b/c we only put one of the beds in his room. We used the other space as a little cubby hole for him to hang-out in & watch his movies! My prince even hooked up some lights to help with the atmosphere!! LOL he's definitely got it made!!

7. one of my friend's father passed away yesterday. :( her mother passed away 5 years ago, so she's having a really hard time w/all of this, i'm sure. if you could spare a few prayers for her & her family...

8. i can't wait for Fall weather. it was still 101 degrees last night at 9pm! *sigh*

9. Lil' Tad has already decided that he wants to be Superman for Halloween this year. i guess they were talking about it at school b/c out of nowhere he blurted it out to me!! ha! works for me! he got one of those costumes w/the built-in muscles for his b-day in june! :) easy enough.

10. still no word from the soccer league about whether or not they assigned hubby as the coach or asst. coach for this season!? and the General meeting and Team Assignment for coaches is THIS Saturday!! i guess i'll call (AGAIN!!!) today! thanks for keeping us informed, buttheads! *sticking tongue out!*

11. i'm a little worried about Tad's asthma acting up during soccer season. at least it will be INDOOR, so that should help alot. his asthma is usually triggered by pollen & ragweed. *cross your fingers* for us.

12. we are not taking Tad w/us on her Vegas trip & he's going to be staying with 2 of the girls (they're best friends) that work at my preschool. soooo totally trustworthy & i know he'll be taken care of, but i'm not sure of what i should pay $ them? i've never had anyone (besides family) watch him overnight... and this will be for 3 nights & 4 days. if i did it by the hour... that would get EXPENSIVE. i asked the girls and they tell me i don't have to pay them at all... but come on! you know i have to & WANT to! :)

13. time to head back to the couch... and rest this aching back! LOL i sound like a grandmother! NOT that there is anything wrong w/acting grandma-ish... just not at 28 yrs old!! heehee :) happy thursday!

a little Monday Madness... why not?!

Monday Madness

1. How many "people" pictures do you have displayed in your house?
Oh gosh... TONS!!! I have around 35 just in my den & playroom area!!

2. How many times a month/year do you rearrange your furniture?
Not very often b/c our den is more long & narrow. The furniture pretty much HAS to stay in the same place!

3. Do you check your email every day? If so, how many times a day?
Yes, I check it everyday. I usually leave the computer on until I go to work in the afternoon... so if I see that I have a new e-mail, I'll check it through-out the morning.

4. How often do you generally look at a clock/watch on any given day?
ALOT!! At home through-out the morning to make sure we get everything done before school time. And then when I get to school - I check it constantly b/c the school buses & vans drop off the school-aged children at certain times & I check to make sure everyone is where they are suppose to be at that given time!! And then I keep an eye on the clock b/c by 5:30pm, I need to start cleaning off my desk! Between the parents & phone-calls, it usually takes me 45 minutes to get everything ready for closing time!!

5. How do you handle telemarketer phone calls?
Either I don't answer... YAY for caller ID! Or I just say "No, thank you!" right away before they even start their little speech. I *try* to be polite... but if they keep on going, I'll just hang-up! hehe

Funny

I didn't get around to participating in Saturday's Photo Hunt this week, so thought I'd post a few funny/silly/cute pics of Lil' Tad that I would've used! :)
Clown10.25.04.4
He's about 2 yrs old here... and you can't tell, but he's sitting on his little potty-training chair! hehe!
P1010013
This is when he was in the 3 yr old class @ school. His teacher brought him to my office to show me his own personal masterpiece! That boy!!! lol
P3010147
This one cracks me up! That is actually a sucker... shaped like those ring-pop suckers! hehe

Lil' Tad's new sister

Lucas Darlene Casserole

That's what her name should be if (and when) Lil' Tad gets a new baby sister! LOL
I don't know where the boy gets this stuff! He cracks me up!

Oh, and if it's a baby boy, you ask?? "Just Lucas... that's it!"

hehe :)

Okay - I couldn't think of anything creative for this week's theme! So since I'm at my parent's house working... (okay - *SUPPOSE* to be working! hehe) - thought I'd take a pic of my Dad's piggie bank of pennies! :)Oh - and that 1 quarter that you see is courtesy of Lil' Tad! He was stopped before he added the whole jar of quarters/dimes/nickels, etc. to the penny piggie bank!

P8050121
Added: 8:54pm! After I got home tonight, I realized that hubby & I had a cool piggie bank in our bedroom... the DP version! :) It's gonna take awhile to fill that baby up! *Excuse the peek-a-boo toes at the bottom! Oops!!*

Thursday Thirteen


13 Upcoming Events & Random Things About Froggie Mama


1. I'm planning a wedding shower for my little sister. We leave for Vegas on Sept. 16th! I really need to get invitations out early next week! Eek! I haven't even started!

2. My friend, Traci's, wedding shower is this Sunday. She's going to get married in the Bahamas in September. I think getting married on the beach is the PERFECT way to do it! :)

3. Back to school & Open House for my Pre-School is the first part of Sept. I can't believe how fast the summer flew by! Wow! I'm about to be BUSY-BUSY at work!

4. I'm planning hubby's 30th birthday in October. I want to throw a birthday bash for him this year since he's getting sooo old!! hehe I'm thinking about asking my parent's about using their house... well, mostly their backyard b/c it's HUGE. And we may can still use their pool. It'll probably still be in the 90's in October! ha!

5. We should be getting a call any day now about whether or not they need hubby to be the Coach or Assistant Coach for Lil' Tad's soccer team this season. Hubby really just wants to be the Assistant - but the lady who does the registration acted like they were short on Coaches and since Hubby has a soccer background (played from 4 yrs to 18 yrs old!) he would be perfect. I know hubby doesn't want all of that responsibility - ordering uniforms, setting up practices, etc. and you know that *I* will end up doing just as much work, too, being the Coach's wife.

6. Soccer season officially starts Sept. 9th. Lil' Tad will be playing Indoor Soccer the first few years & I think they actually play outdoors on the field when they are 6 yrs old. I can't wait for the games! Tad is sooo excited about it and has already been practicing every night with his Daddy in the front yard. He thinks that he's really cool wearing his soccer shoes & shin-guards. It's too cute!! :)

7. We're still on the hunt for a new house. Hubby found a nice house in the country for sale, but it's vacant right now & not sure how to reach the owner. One of hubby's co-workers said that he talked to the owner when she had a garage sale about a month ago & she's was offering a REALLY, REALLY good price for the home & land. We haven't been inside the house yet - so not sure if there is something hidden that we don't know about - but thinking that it is just TOO much for her to take care of by herself since she's older. We'll see how it works out. If not... we'll keep on looking!

8. I can't wait for my sister to find out what her baby's sex is! At her last sonogram it was still too early - so I'm hoping they do another one in a few months!! ha! It'll probably be closer to 26 weeks or so - but I can't wait that long! :) I'm kind-of hoping for a boy... so that we'd both have little boys - but I also think it would be neat to have a baby girl in the family. So really... I don't care! I'm excited either way!! :)

9. We're on the hunt for a new photographer for the school. I haven't been very impressed with our current one & I know alot of our parent's feel the same. Heck, I know I could've done a better job than he did... and I'm sure not a professional. My boss actually mentioned something to be about taking some this school year - but I'm not quite ready to get into all of that. Plus I'm waiting to get a new camera first before I start anything like that. But - if we don't find a new one by the first of September, I'm going to take their Back To School pictures. We usually just do something simple anyways with a desk, chalkboard, and an apple - and I think I can manage something like that. I have NO idea what to charge though, etc. so I will have to look into all of that, for sure.

10. I can't wait for the Fall TV line-up to begin. I'm ready for my Grey's Anatomy & Desperate Housewives night! Even though I heard they are moving Grey's to Thursdays! Hmmm... that's going to just throw me all off! ha! Yeah, okay... TV really isn't that important, but I'm addicted... what can I say!!

11. Hubby may be looking for a new job. I think he's tired of his current one and has made little hints here & there. I think he's ready for a change & he's ready for more challenges. There really isn't much room for promotion in his current department and I don't think he's being appreciated like he should. We may be e-mailing his resume this weekend to a few different companies. Wish him luck!

12. I think I write this down (or at least think about it!) on EVERY Thursday 13 - but I really need to get in shape! I'd love to lose AT LEAST 10lbs. I know I'd feel better myself! Plus I have some really cute jeans that I want to fit back into this Fall. I'm weighing about 15 more pounds than I did before I was pregnant 5 years ago - so I need to do it now before I get pregnant with #2 or I'm really going to have some work to do later!!

13. My 5 year Anniversary to my hubby is in a few months. I had planned on going on a trip somewhere since it's been 5 years. (And then we'd go somewhere again on our 10th, 15th, 20th, etc.) But with our trip to Vegas next month, I'm not sure what we'll do! Maybe we can just spend a weekend away in Oklahoma & rent out a cabin again. That was nice! :)
