While The Parent's Are Away...



Two weeks ago Mr. Mayer and I finally made our long awaited anniversary trip. We went to Las Vegas. I wanted a pool, sunshine and somewhere close enough we could get home quick. With everything happening in my life and the kids being so young I thought that would be best. Vegas it was. It was so nice to get away. We had a great time. We went and saw some shows. If anyone ever has an opportunity to see Peepshow go do it! It was such a fun time. I laughed until I cried. We slept in. Did a little shopping. We also went and saw the Neon Museum. That was fantastic. It was full of oldVegas signs and a lot of nostalgia. The man doing our tour knew a lot of history and could tell us fun stories about old Vegas. One night we went to Freemont Street. I love street performers. Freemont Street is crawling with them. They are so fun to watch. We also went and toured the Mob Museum. That was another amazing and interesting place! There was a lot of this...


  We tried to keep the trip very low key and not make to many plans. We ate, drank, laughed and had a really great time. Sonetimes it's easy to get caught up in the day to day of life you forget the people you are outside of kids. It was nice to get away and member that we are really fun people outside of our kids. While Mr. Mayer and I were cooling our feet by the pool KiKi was at home holding the fort down with our precocious little angles. The first day there we get this text from her....
Yeah. We have magnetic locks on the entertainment center. Those little jerks figured out how to unlock them. Doh! I do love technology though. All week we were able to facetime and keep up with what the kids were doing. In fact, the texts just kept coming. Read and enjoy....



And finally....oh yes...this happened. I'm so proud.


Oh those kids....needless to say they had a REALLY good time while we were gone. Akelah handled it like a champ. In fact, she has volunteered to watch the kids for another week next year! So, I'm taking recommendations for next years local :)

What She Wore Wednesday

It's Wednesday again- already! It's a rainy kind of day. Diva was in a pretty good mood this morning. That always helps. As usual she dressed herself. Nothing wild, she picked out a dress. She is a ham though when it comes to having her picture taken.

Dress: Thrift Store find (she wanted the ties tied in the front instead of the back)
Not pictured is her footwear. She chose white dress shoes from Target.

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 she…

I Just Taught Myself How To Add Pictures To My Blog...

It's about time I figured it out.
We went and stayed with family over New Year's. Diva rode a horse and a big green tractor. 

                  She thought she was a VERY big deal getting to ride Goldie on New Year's Day



Mr. Hubs dabbles in photography. He never gives himself enough credit. He had to watch Shrek and Donkey for a few hours this weekend. This is how he spent his time...
