No longer a D-Mom Chat Virgin!!!

This was a long, busy weekend to say the least. Holiday weekend and the last weekend before my "little angels" went back to school.
.
Here's the "short version"...
.
Thursday: HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!!!! We had a group of great friends over to help us celebrate. We DID make it to midnight (woo hoo). I had my camera out to take a few pics to share, but somewhere between the Sweet Tea Vodka and the "F"ed up Uno... I forgot.
.
Friday: Our plans were canceled because my sister in law got sick. HOWEVER, we did not complain because the yucky rainy weather was a great excuse to stay in. Besides... the hubby had a headache (hmm ~ wonder if he got it from his "friend" Jack Daniels?)
.
Saturday: I was put to work. The tree came down, the outside Christmas lights came down, it was all packed up and the holiday 20 boxes and bins went back into the attic until next year.
AGAIN... I forgot to take pics of the house and tree.
.
Sunday: oh Sunday... I was a church slacker(she says ashamed). So I watched me some church online.. it was live! (who knew?)
.
Anthony on the other hand started on the loft bed. Justin wants it for his birthday and we decoded to build it. THE PLAN is that it will be completely suspended except for the 1 post on the outside corner. This was in lieu of a cable going into my ceiling. (Thank you Bob Villa)


Here he is cutting wood...











While daddy was occupied... the kids and I got ready and for some reason allowed my friend to drag us out to the Manatee viewing site. I'm sorry... I was born and raised in Florida and it is FREAKIN COLD out there right now!
.
Either way we went. This pic obviously shows my excitement...










We were all bundled up but still complaining "IT'S COLD"!!












Notice the not so thrilled look on Justin's face...












OOOH~ your face is warm.... warm my hands please.... what a friend!








You really couldn't see the Manatees in the picture I took, but the sharks and stingrays but on quite a show for us...
Before we left... we stopped in the Manatee museum to defrost.
We headed home via Sonic for my LAST route 44 diet vanilla coke. (I miss them already)
I scurried along to cook dinner and get the angels in bed before 9:00. (most of you know why)
It's because up until last night I was a D-Mom chat virgin... WELL NOT NO MORE!!!
How fun was that? SUPER FUN!!! You all are NUTS! In a good nutty way of course.
I am glad I was able to join in the fun... I've been missing out.
.
So on that note... all I have to say is: D- Moms ROCK!!!
.
Happy Monday!

I'm a wimp in the cold too. I think us California girls and you Florida girls have this in common. I'm glad you were there last night. It's like a slumber party of giggly girls until we start talking about the big D stuff. We can go from silly to crying in no time flat. (I'm still embarassed I wasn't 100% sure you were on fb. How could I forget my LOVELY friend.) But it's been a long Christmas break! I'm flirting with losing all my marbles. Honestly though, I thought you were typing that you needed to be emailed about the grinch, because you didn't have FB. :P I'm rambling...the boys go back to school tomorrow...hoping to return to normal...

I'm glad that I was able to make the chat too. I always forget and on Monday at some point I realize it and I'm so upset I missed it! Chasiti called me to remind me this Sunday. It is a lot of fun.

I always see the sonic commercials and wish that we had one here because I think that I would just LOVE it!

Shamae said...

I love D mom chats too!! I missed this week cause I wasn't feeling so good-o. But I should be on this sunday. yay! What picture program do you use to write the words on your pics...like the stingray pic?

Lora said...

Thank you all for the warm welcome ladies. You are all awesome :)

Shamae, I use Picasa to edit and write on the photos. It's a free download and I have used it for a few years. I have a photoshop program, but I like Picasa better because it's user friendly.
Meri uses a program called Picnik?? I haven't had a chance to play with it alot, but that one seems fun.
