A Pre-Graduation Pampering

A Pre-Graduation Pampering

While I certainly can be very girly in many ways :P, I was never really the particularly “foo foo” type.  I’m not so good at braiding hair and wish I knew how to apply make-up on properly.  I didn’t get even my first real salon-pedicure until after S & I were married. ( I’m TOTALLY up for getting the occasional nail … Continue reading

Bits and pieces of our weekend…(and then some). Every Friday after school Hp & Bf get to go to their beloved art class!  Everyone (alllll the teachers,  friends, secretary…) at the preschool knows about art-class Fridays.  We know this because they all say, “Have fun at art class, Faith!” as we race past them through the hallway.  What certain little … Continue reading

“It’s Friiiiday, Friiiiday…!”

Last Friday, the Mister and I went to a good friend’s wedding (Congratulations A&R)!  There were no kids allowed so S got 2 of his most capable and reliable students (hey, if you add their ages together it equals 30, so that’s OK right? :P) to babysit our 3 pups for the night.  You can … Continue reading

I.  Love. This. Salsa.

I. Love. This. Salsa.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  Other than S taking the kids out for a special lunch of tacos and carne asada fries at our local festive Mexican cocina, (right up the street from us) today, we’ve been “celebrating” by eating this salsa all week long! There really isn’t much to say about this recipe except for the fact … Continue reading

Sweetie took me out for a night on the town over the weekend!  We dropped off our 3 pups at Bf’s preschool where they hosted a special “date nite.”  Parents drop off their kids, sleeping bags and jammies, and they get to play flashlight tag, watch movies, and eat popcorn!  (I wanna go!)  I made … Continue reading
