Friday night we
All I drank all night was two martinis and one long island ice tea over the course of about 7 hours and was....well, there's just no delicate way of saying it....I was shit-faced...like I said I don't get out much! Back in the day of my college years and a few memorable spring break trips I could drink.....a LOT.....but now, not so much! Motherhood has done this to me. So Saturday I was feeling a little useless (as was hubby) and I had a very difficult time being productive as I had a TON of stuff to get done before Easter. I tried to do a little blog surfing but blogger was down all day and I couldn't get on....Divine intervention again tapping me on the shoulder...."eh-hem.....Mama Smurf, you are NOT going on the computer today...you have too much to do...and I know you....once you get on it'll be hours before you get off....so not today!...buh-bye!" We had a house full of kids most of the afternoon.
Had a fantastic Easter Day...Hefty, my oldest, was dropping hints Saturday night at the dinner table...(his Easter Bunny believing days are over btw)...."I REEEEALLY hope the Easter Bunny...wink wink....does the Scavenger hunt this year...that was SOOOO much fun..." Needless to say the scavenger hunt was a big hit. They had a blast...If I could figure out how to put video clips of the hunt on this blog I would...but I'm just not that blog savvy yet...one day...
Spent the late morning and afternoon at my Aunt and Uncle's house for an Easter brunch with the rest of the family. It was an afternoon of gluttony! I made deviled eggs for the first time...AND...tasted deviled eggs for the first time. They were delicious! Learn something new every day. And my cousin made this unbelievably sinful french toast casserole from Paula Deen's website! I'll have to make that one soon...the whole family was drooling over it! My family had me all fired up to try a DIY project...adding a ceramic tile back splash in my kitchen. I'm on a new mission to become a Mrs. Handy(wo)man. I want to flip houses! My mom gave me my next book that I"ll be reading...a flip it for dummies book. So I'm going to try some do-it yourself projects around my house to get me ready! This will be my new obsession I've decided! =) In case you haven't figured it out yet...my obsessions change from month to month. I'll be over it in a few weeks I'm sure!
Then I spent this morning and early afternoon having a play date with those same girlfriends from Friday evening and their kids. We had 8 kids running around the house! We've decided we're going to flip houses together! I'm REALLY fired up about this! I just wish this market would turn around! We'll have to wait anyway until after the end of this year to get started so I'm going to spend the next 9 months educating myself. Anyone out there know anything about this?? Any good books out there?? Any "flipping" tips?
