Happy Valencetimes Day

I'm not an overly gushy person.  In fact Mr. Hubs is definitely the more affectionate one in our relationship.  I have no reason or excuse for it, it's just the way I'm wired. I would like to change that, but I always stop myself. Again, no reason for it. Usually I let/make Mr. Hubs plan a special Valentine's Day Date. Partly because the first year we were married there was a movie fiasco and he has never let me forget it. The movie Monster was in theaters over Valentine's that year and I really wanted to see it. So, for Valentine's Day I drug Mr. Hubs to see it. It didn't leave him with a warm lovin' feeling. I loved the movie. Since then he has planned our dates. He always does really good. This year I wanted to shake things up and do something special. So, I planned our date. It drove Mr. Hubs crazy because he knew I had something special planned he just didn't know what. He doesn't like surprises. So, the day of our date came and I told him we were going to take pole dancing lessons and then go to play bingo, it would be a really late night. He looked at me like I was crazy. In reality I had signed us up for a cooking class. We could take wine so I had a friend smuggle me a bottle I hid in my purse so Mr. Hubs wouldn't see it. I could tell Mr. Hubs was nervous. He thought I was going to make him do something horrible. We pulled up to the place and Mr. Hubs got a huge smile on his face. He was very surprised. The class was a lot of fun. We will definitely be doing that again. The class was over with at 9 and we had a babysitter so that was too early to go home since we don't get out much. We had both been wanting to see Black Swan so I thought seeing that after our class would be fun. Ugh...I like weird, but that movie was even weird by my standards. Mr. Hubs is never going to let me pick another movie again! Over all I will say our special date was a lot of fun and Mr. Hubs was really surprised.
That was Saturday...
Today is "Valencetimes Day" as the Diva likes to call it. She danced off to daycare this morning carrying her little Valentine's cards for her friends. She was very excited! She had a party at school and her surrogate grandmother took her flowers and picked her up early. Very.Big.Deal. She dressed up for her party at school today

Tonight Mr. Hubs took Diva on a special date just him and her. She got dressed up again for her date with pink leggings, purple shirt, mis matched socks and....gold glittery dress shoes. Mr. Hubs was appalled that he had to take her in public. Diva told her Daddy that she wanted to go "to the place with sofapillows." That's Diva for Ted's and sopapillas. As usual I asked Diva what the best part of her day was and she said "my date with Daddy was the best." Awwww.....so sweet.

All in all it was a pretty good Valentine's Day. Mr. Hubs and I agreed that since we recently bought bedroom furniture we wouldn't get any gifts for each other. He never said that the kids couldn't get him anything ;)

  1. when her teacher asked if little diva wanted a picture with her grandmother...she rolled those big eye up to see what my reaction was going to be..when I knelt down beside her...the look on her face was "priceless"..to me...and she was quick to add that her Papa was at home. When I told Brad..the look on his face was "priceless"..we are so lucky to have her in our lives...

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs. Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven. Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine!  She came over today to make some pasta. While s

Potty Mouth

You would think I would be referring to myself or Mr. Mayer. But, no. I'm talking about the precocious little girl that lives in this house. "I cleaned my room damn good." Wait. What? That was the sentence Diva told me a few weeks ago when I asked her if she had cleaned her room. I was in shock. Mr. Mayer was stifling a laugh. Diva was dead serious. A few days after that she came downstairs and told me to "Tell those damn boys to leave my damn toys alone." Apparently her brother's were messing with her Barbies. We have also had the occasional "damn it" when she drops something or spills something. It was super embarrassing when we were at Target and she dropped a toy in the toy department and said "damn it." Thankfully there was no one around to hear her. Diva's um...creative (?) vocabulary started as soon as she started speaking. She has always used big words, whether she knew what they meant or not. Mr. Mayer and I are totally

Strollergate

I have twins. In order for me to have any freedom or do anything ordinary I MUST have a stroller. A double stroller. Have you ever seen/pushed/owned a double stroller? It's like a land train. It's like being a bull in a china shop wherever you go. I started my journey with a Graco tandem stroller that the car seats fit into. This stroller was as long as I am tall. The boys hated it because they didn't like not being by each other. I started researching and asking around and was told by numerous sources that the best stroller was the Peg Perego Aria. I priced new ones and searched Craig's List and found one for a reasonable price. I was very excited . Now, the stroller is light weight enough for me to carry in one hand. The boys were happy with it because they could see/touch/steal toys and snack from each other. Very important to them. However....the canopy barely covers the boys heads. Not good with the Oklahoma weather. And see those double wheels on the front. Thos
