My heart goes out to Kate Gosselin, her performance on DWTS
was like a shopping cart, no joke. But hey....I am so proud of her!

You know she could have completely turned down the opportunity
to be on the show. But instead, she stood strong, showing that no
matter how hard times get, that life does go on.

This is my first year to watch DWTS-ever!

And I have to say I am watching it just because of her.

Kate on Dancing With The Stars.....
I absolutely loved her dress.

I understand the shopping cart comment!
The nerves.....I see myself in Kate....I know what
it is like with nerves to the point your in a puff
like I am I really here.

Kate is so bold, honest! And I love it...

can't wait to see what the weeks ahead bring for her
-you can do this-

~zhu zhu pets~

Have you seen them?

My youngest daughters birthday is in November.
Just in time for all the cool stuff out, that will be hot that Christmas.
This past November zhu zhu pets it was.
The commerical played several times a week.
And what do you know, my daughter wanted them, not just one but all.

So as the good mom I am, my search was on.
Only you could not find them in local stores, I looked at Toys r us, Target
and Walmart. Nothing, only a empty shelf, indicating they would have them
but they had just not arrived.

Internet search was on from there. I found them, the set was almost $500.
I just couldn't find myself to get the set, so I settled for a few pieces.

Close to Christmas time I saw friends on facebook looking for zhu zhu's.
They couldn't be found anywhere. Or if they did right before Christmas they
broke down and bought the set. And I am thinking to myself, my daughter got hers
for her birthday in November, and she doesn't even play with them, still doesn't!

I was in the local Big Lots this week, we went to get bug catchers,
and there the zhu zhu's sat.On the end aisle!
My daughter already recently had been telling me she wanted
the rest of the set. And of course seeing them in Big Lots
just made her want them even more. I didn't give in. I just don't
see it, she doesn't play with the ones she has.

I over heard the people next to me,
talking about how much they paid at Christmas for them
and how hard it was to find them. I was so glad to hear
I am not the only one who is kicked up
on them. Makes me wonder about everyone else.

Does your child have zhu zhu pets? If so, do they like them...

Spring Break is here again...

After five years now of being a stay home mom, I finally get it!

I love it when my kids are out of school...but I always want something fun for them.
It amazes me at the littlest things that make them happy.

Last week and the week before both my girls and I had strep throat,
so this really had me off on my days of being prepared for them home during
spring break. As a last minute take, I am up late at night thinking of our week ahead.

Everyone else is soundly asleep!

The one request I was given before bedtime was for my mother to spend two days
with them not just one, so I will fit that into the equation.


pump it up
movies-only I checked the movies and there's not really any ones we would enjoy.
make crafts
shop for easter shoes
shop for swim suits
play games

A list of a few websites I found:
