And then it was just us girls....

So today was a busy day....I have had two of them in a row....man am I tired and crap is almost 11pm. This morning wasn't too much out of the norm.....worked...came home....Pumped (ugh).....and read books with Kiara & Mikiah.....After putting them down for nap....I ran Shawn and Joe (Gecas) to the airport....They are Austin Texas bound......and are attending a good friends wedding...I am still bummed that we weren't able to work it out so I could go....Oh well......Just means I have a trip/vacation coming to me.......wait a minute....I should have two trips coming to me....Shawn also went to Auburn, AL over Labor Day....Hmmm...thats two vacations for a totaling about 9 days.....geesh, where to go.....and who to go with......No kids thats for sure!!!...

Any way back to today....after dropping off the boys....I headed to do some grocery shopping.....Trader Joe's was first on my list.....and boy do they know how to get someone to buy something.....Today they had Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip and Chips ready when I walked through the door.....and of course I had to try it....and then I had to buy both....gotta love impulse purchases....I finished my shopping at Fred Meyer......I just have to say I love grocery shopping....I know I am INSANE.....most people hate it....I could do it everyday.....for me its another short time away from the kids....and even when I have to bring them I still usually enjoy it......

The girls were pretty good today....Kiara became a pill when I wouldn't give her any of my Iced Mocha.....she thinks she is entitled to have everything you have.....we have been teaching her she doesn't always get what she wants.....but man she just didnt get that concept today.....we had some minor then major screaming.....oh well...what can you do....Lila was pretty quite most of the day.....recovering from her 1st round of immunizations....lately she has been munching on her fists.....she loves them.....She won't take a Binky, which is totally fine by me.....considering Kiara and MJ still use theirs from time to time in their crib.....I know they are too old but we have made an arrangement that they don't get to have them anymore when they move into big girl beds.....and they both agreed...we shall see how that goes when the time comes....Here are some pics of Lila and her fists....and her new love...her bouncy seat....She was not a big fan of the infant papasan or the swing so I was sure she would hate her bouncy seat too....I love it when she proves me wrong!.....



Lastly I want to wish Shawn luck this week with a few job interviews.....Honey, I know you will do great and we are so proud of you. Lots of love from your girls!.....Miss you!

My offer is still always open for girls time, just let me know! (I know I am an old girl but I still know how to have a bit of fun now and again.)
Lila is so cute and growing so fast I can hardly wait till next week. Remember friday is girls day...hopefully it holds you till you can do more.

Hi Kaelee! I'm glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day! :) That artichoke dip sounds really good, I love Trader Joe's too....unfortunately they aren't out here. I hope Shawn's trip goes well and tell him good luck on his interviews! Take care!
Miss you,
