What a week(end)

Friend in Car accident Friday, here in down. Saturday evening: Had to pick up her parents from airport and keep tabs on her until they got here.
Blood Work Saturday... got in much later than expected.
Funeral in Fresno. Missed it (GGRRRRRR, it's been weighing on my heart). I didn't get there in time because of the blood work. (Would have blown blood work off, but dr. insisted that I get it done now.) So I had to turn around and go to Lemoore for
Little C's ear surgery (he's 4). Needed to be there when he woke up.
Finally ended up home.


Sunday: Slept until 10. That is the latest I've slept-in in years. Between the stress of this weekend and the stress and sleepless nights of a new puppy (it is getting better), it finally took it's tole. I pulled my peck mustles yesterday somehow and it makes it very hard to move.

Got to go see a co-worker's baby so that was a nice treat.
Now, I am just going to sit and just be....

Other News: I didn't post but last week we got a puppy. He is a Yellow Lab named Pudge. He will be 8 weeks old this Tuesday. He's been a handful much like a new baby. Though only 7 weeks old he knows the word no very well. HA! He continues to grow and change each day. I'll attach a picture (2 days after we got him).

Send your good thoughts and prayers

A friend of mine who's mother has been battling cancer for a few years now, has lost the fight. She passed on this morning. Please send your good thoughts/prayers. My friend and her family need them right now.

Quick Happy thought about my friends mom. When my friend and I were little our dad's use to do baseball card and collectable shows. My friend and I would always go and play together while our dad's did there thing. My friends mom would always go to Mc Donalds and bring us back happy meals for us to share with our Barbies as we sat and played under the tables.

Pudge Controls the Weather

Well, we did it. We got another puppy. My oldest friend Lauren's yellow lab had a litter of cute as can be puppies and so we got one from her. The hubs has been wanting a yellow lab since he had one growing up that passed on just a couple of years ago, so I know it meant a lot to him.

It meant a lot to me too! Lauren and I go way back, I mean, I can remember talking to her when she was in her mom's belly. We grew up together. We went through a lot together. We are the type of friends that all though we talk through facebook and email, we go a long time with out seeing each other.... and yet, when we do hang out, it's like no time had passed. That's how it was today. I went to her house today, and hung out, with her and her hubs and son. It was so much fun! Her son LOVES me. We were eating lunch at the table and he scoots his chair over to sit RIGHT next to me and decides to lean his head on my arm. SO CUTE. Anyway... it was so amazing to get to spend time with her, and to get our new little puppy from her, just means the world.

So I'd like to introduce to you... Pudge. He is a yellow lab and he'll be 7 weeks old on Tuesday.

Great Saturday

So yesterday my leadership class was canceled because the speaker went into labor. HA! So ok, congrats to her.

I spent the rest of the day with my friend Amanda. She's a new friend I met this year at work. She's a 4th grade teacher. We have gotten to know each other as we worked on yearbook and have hung out, outside of school several times.

Long story short, Amanda is hosting a Bridal Shower, but the bridesmaids names on the "Hosted By" and no one is helping. They offer and there is no follow through. I know how she feels and how much work it is, and how much stress it creates, so I offered to help her.

We spent all day yesterday shopping and making shower favors. Engagement story, the guy got take out and had a special fortune cookie made for his bride to be. The fortune said will you marry me. CUTE NO? So Amanda and I got Chinese take out boxes, decorated them in the bride's wedding colors and bought fortune cookies to stick inside. We were working until 7pm or so... but we busted them out! They look cute, and I feel better knowing that's one less thing for her to worry about!

Spending time with her was awesome. After the long two and a half (or so)years here where I thought I'd never make any friends I could hang out with outside of the work place, she was like a bright light. I am so happy and blessed to have her be put in my life.

Sorry no pictures of the take out containers.

Back to Work

Well the first week back is quickly coming to an end. My kids have been doing really well in class. We were all in a bit of a fog Tuesday morning for a few minutes, but we got right back into the swing of things. We are now getting ready for The CST (California State Test).

This proves to be a busy weekend. I have a leadership class, and I'll be helping a friend make some Bridal Shower favors. I'm an expert at putting favors and such together. I've hosted 3 bridal showers and did everything for my own wedding on my own (don't ask).

Also a co-work of mine just had a baby so my friend and I are going to see if we can go visit her and her new baby, Andrew!

Disneyland Trip

*Well we are back from our Anaheim, trip.

We started off our mini vacation with an LA Kings game.

Then we spent two fun filled days in Disneyland. Lemon Slushes, Buddy Passes to cut lines, and a walk through Sleeping Beauty's Castle were just some of the fun things we experienced. We also had a visit from one of my Best Friends, Summer and her hubbie Kevin. We had lunch with them at ESPN Zone and went on Buzz Lightyear!

Here are some photos for you to enjoy.

So long Anaheim, we will see you again soon!
