Thursday Things I Never Thought I'd Hear...

Published on 5.31.2012 in , ,

In all the craziness of the week/weekend we also had a bachelorette party.  Super fun, because let's just say my cousins are awesome!

One of them does not like vegetables...well, except for one.

Her and another cousin had made fabulous mojitos...I had four. 

Anyway, upon leaving to fill up her glass again, she said this...

"Well, time to go get more vegetables!"

"Whoa, wait.  Mint's a vegetable?!?"

"It's green, and leafy.  I call that a vegetable..."

Friday's Favorites...a little family time...

Published on 5.25.2012 in ,

Over the next three days I will be...

...celebrating not one, not two, but five family birthdays...

...helping to host a future cousin's wedding shower...

...taking family pictures of my own family...

...attending that same future cousin's bachelorette party...

...going to church with my siblings and their children...

...possibly attending a family reunion...

...celebrating Engineering Man's birthday...

...and taking family photos for a friend...

Let's just say I'll have a whole lot of family around...

Maybe this should be a "Friday's Favorites of looking forward to peace and quiet"....

Thursday Things I Never Thought I'd Hear...

Mini #1 was adamant he wanted to watch Strawberry Shortcake...

UGH...

In the five minutes we watched it, Strawberry was in her house and rode her bike.

I was then adamant we were turning the channel...Mini #1 agreed.

Engineering Man noted, "Did you notice that everyone in that was either cooking, cleaning, shopping, or doing hair?"

Mini #1 piped up, "Yea Dad.  It's a girl show."

UGH!!!
