$54.95...are you kidding me...

AHhhh Saturday....I love them....especially when we get to get out and go shopping....Today my mom stayed until early afternoon so Shawn and I could go shopping....I know it sounds like we are helpless....but can you imagine us with all three girls in Men's Warehouse shopping for a suit for Shawn....disaster is all I can think....we probably would have gotten kicked out....I thought about having Shawn go by himself....But I was afraid he would spend tooo much money or get a suit that I wouldn't like....don't get me wrong he has good taste in clothes....its just he got a suit in Boston by himself....and look here we are getting another one a few years later, if that tells you anything.....but it was fun watching Shawn try on suits....and I have to admit I usually dont like suit salesmen but ours was great...If anyone needs a suit ask for Tyler at the Bellevue Galleria Men's Warehouse...Good guy.....SO good that we ended up spending more then we had intended....but isnt that how it always goes, I think deep down I knew we would spend that much but its always a sticker shocker when its rung up....at least we got free parking out of the deal (I still can't believe the galleria charges for parking).....Anyway, now Shawn has a great suit and a bunch of cool shirts and ties to go with it and of course new socks and shoes....he is ready for possible interviews in Austin and Frazier's Wedding......

Speaking of interviews.....Shawn told me last night that he has 2 phone interviews with companies in Austin on Monday....He loves his job here in WA but the idea of being closer to his brother and the affordability of owning a home lures us to Austin....I mean home prices here are ridiculous....we could get a 3 bedroom 1200-1400sqft townhouse here for 450K compared to a brand new 4 bedroom 2800-3700k sqft home with a yard for 200K in Austin......So hopefully his phone interviews go well ......its nice to keep all our options open.....

So our morning was full of suit shopping and our afternoon was full of a bunch of nothing.....which was nice...We had the age old question of "What do you want for dinner"....finally decided on Homemade Meatball Subs.....I haven't made those in forever....except today I cheated....yup you heard me right....I went to Costco this afternoon....so while I was there I bought pre-made Meatballs....I know I know meatballs are pretty easy to make.......but lately I been a bit on the lazy side when it comes to cooking....I think I may be in a small rut....the only thing I can think of to cook these days is Italian food.....on that same note I also bought Italian Sausage Links at Costco too.....see I tell you I have Italian food on the brain....ugh.........and I am making a big pot of Spaghetti tomorrow.... maybe I should have been born into an Italian Family.....

So right now I am watching the end of the Mayweather vs. De la Hoya fight....Yeah we are one of the millions of people insane enough to pay $54.95 to watch two grown men duke it out in Vegas.....As you can see I am really into it....working on my blog and all....ahhh its over....Gecas came over to watch it.....Joe and Shawn are totally into the fight.....grown men crack me up....I mean its just a boxing fight....I do love looking at the crowd at the fight....I saw Leonardo DiCaprio, Toby McGuire, Jennifer Lopez (and her icky, slimy husband), and too many more to list......
Ahhh just announced the winner Pretty Boy Floyd Mayweather...Poor Oscar....oh well...Now that its over maybe I will get to watch some of my shows or a movie....Still can't believe that we payed almost sixty bucks for this....I could have bought some new clothes or the bottle of perfume I have been wanting....Lolita Lempicka.....I am not a big perfume person since most of them make me get a headache....but boy to I love the scent of Lolita Lempicka...Back to the fight...the worst part about buying or using pay per view is that you think "ahhh yeah no prb about the cost, its not that much"....so you order it and then 3 weeks later you flip out when you get your cable bill....and by that time you already have spent the money you set aside to pay the bill.....Sorry, just mentally prepping myself for the end of the month when the cable bill rolls in....

In case you were wondering....all the girls had a good day....I know I didn't mention them much.....they loved spending their morning with Grandma Paula (Thanks again Mom!!!).......right now Lila is laying on me as I am typing and Kiara/Mikiah are off in dreamland....

Nothing wrong with eating Italian food every day! :)
Please tell Shawn I said good luck with the interviews in Austin...I know what you mean about the ridiculous price of housing out here...I've lived here 10+ years and it still shocks me.

I'll have to check out the perfume you mentioned...I'm the same way, most scents give me a horrible headache.

As you can see we're a little late hitting the road. Oh-well..

Talk later,

I can't believe it cost that much to watch a fight.... Maybe you should have those boys pay for it now. Just send the money.... cable company likes getting it early... That's for having me. I love those little girls. They make my day Brighter!!Got love that perfume..
