My Birthday Wish

My husband has been asking lately what I would like to get for my birthday. Normally I'm pretty easy. I want pillows. Not just any pillows though, mine cost about $75.00 and are made of down. This makes them plushy and snuggly! This year however, I think I'm leaning toward a down comforter to go with all of my plushy pillows. Truly, I've never slept better than with these pillows. There are nights when my husband beats me to bed, and I will come in and he's stolen my fluffy pillows. I don't have the heart to steal them back, but it really isn't a very good nights sleep. Of course, it doesn't help that I'm cursing him under my breath!

Zits & Freckles

Do you remember being a teenager with the face of a teenager? I had some acne problems as well as freckles. Both, I was told, would go away as I grew older. Well, I'm nearing 40 and still use an acne treatment every week or so. I'm sorry, but just how old do I have to get? To much older and I'll just be able to hide the zits in the wrinkles of my skin so that my grandkids won't be able to see them!

Getting Old

My parents just got into town this evening! It's always fun to see them even though it is starting to take a toll on my mom. My dad is 14 years older than she is and really seems to have the health and longevity of his dad, who passed away at 96 years old, and even then his body was young but due to Alzheimer's his mind was gone. So we are hoping to have many wonderful years with my dad!

I've Nailed It Down

A post or two back I wrote about finding a huge discount on home theater stuff, well today, I found home theater chairs at a whale of a bargain as well! All I can say is, I think this is going to be a sweet anniversary present for the two of us. The kids will enjoy it as well, and I can already see all of the sleep overs that will take place down there. But right now, I'm just excited to save a lot of money and still get something that everyone will love!

Almost Finished

It's nearly the end of the school year. I'm always amazed at how fast it goes once Easter has hit. We are currently on Spring Break which really means we are done. Just two months left and there will be no need for bic pens or wide ruled notebook paper. My kids will be a year older, and closer to middle school, and that's just wrong! Next school year my little girl starts Kindergarten. She's thrilled for this milestone, I'm dreading it!

Happy Anniversary

Our 11th wedding anniversary is coming up soon! I'm really happy to have made it to this milestone. The first 10 years were cake, so I'm hoping the next 10 will be great also! I've been looking into some 'hi-tech' gifts to give the "man" but am having a hard time nailing it down. I would love to get him a computer. I don't care if it's a laptop or a desktop, we desperately need one. Then I found discount home theater seating and now my mind is working in a whole new direction. I feel bad because whatever we get him, the whole family will use. So it isn't just a fun gift for him. But I guess that's what it means to be a dad!
