My 6 Unimportant Favorite Things

Julia tagged here they are. Enjoy.

1. Facebook ...I thought I would NEVER start a facebook account, but in January...I took the plunge. My sister-in-law invited me to join (she lives in Indiana) and in order to view her photos, I did. Now I'm hooked. I've found many college friends and former roommates. It's fun keeping up with some of their daily activities. I've even "met" some of my husband's former classmates through this sight.

2. Making chocolate chip cookies and eating the cookie dough. Wonder why my clothes are shrinking. Hmmm......

3. Pedicures. 5 years ago, my husband and I took an anniversary trip to Niagara Falls and the hotel had a spa. I received my first mani/pedi and it was wonderful. I love pedicures because it's relaxing and the polish lasts a while. Manicures don't last as long and you can't really use your hands until the polish fully dries. That's my opinion anyway.

4. Reading the jokes in the Reader's Digest.

5. Sudoku

6. I like to walk around Lowes, Bed, Bath and Beyond, and JoAnne Fabrics even if I don't need to buy anything.

That's my list. I tried to pick REALLY unimportant things. I think I was successful.

Since most of you have already been tagged...Stephanie and Jen F, if you read this you are tagged. Just list 6 unimportant favorite things.It's relatively painless. You're suppose to tag 6 other people, but nothing bad will happen if you don't.

Mother Daughter Banquet 2009

These lovely young ladies recited a poem during the program. They did a great job.
I, actually, used my FlipVideo to record the event, but I neglected to fully push the record button. So I held a video camera up for the whole poem with nothing to show for my efforts. Genius.

A quick picture before we left home.

Not wanting to be left out, Brianna wanted to get her picture taken with the group.

Red Wings Game

Frankly, the only reason I attend the games is for all of the wonderful food, but this time I also snapped a few pics. Here are a few, in no particular order.

I love this picture. Don't they look cute?

Sorry, Brittany. I had to put this in. You look bored.

Kristina was sitting in front of me and she just looked so adorable curled up with the pink blanket. I couldn't resist a picture. She should be used to a camera, right?

And then this is how the night ended.......

A broken window...

I checked for anything valuable. We had about 10 dollars in the glove compartment. It was safe. The GPS was safe. David's friend, Jeff, had his stuff in the back with a PSP. Still there. What was the point? There was a shattered vodka bottle so we thought it was just a random drunk. We called 911 and waited and waited and waited. It seemed like forever. During this time we walked around the lot and my children spotted a pink Bible. Katelyn said it looked like the one she had in her purse. It was hers.
Okay, so these brilliant, criminal masterminds see a fabric purse in the back seat and decide to break our window to get it. What was in her purse? The Bible, Kleenex, a star wars figure, pencils and a pen. Most of which we found in the parking lot. They must not have felt they needed the Bible.
The police arrive and tell us that there have been a string of these types of incidents. They think they know who is doing this, but they can't prove. They even had an unmarked car watch this gang, but so far....nothing.

The tech person showed up to try to get fingerprints, but they weren't able to get good prints. One of these geniuses was cut by the glass and bled in my car. THE NERVE! They did swap the blood, but I don't really think that this case will warrant a DNA test, do you?

Well, that was our adventure. No major harm done. Just a very late night.

Happy that her Bible is back in her hands.

For my kids

We made it to Philadelphia late last night. Daddy was off to work at about 6am, but I got to sleep in.
We didn't sleep well at all last night. This picture is a view from our hotel room that may explain why we didn't get much sleep. The cars and trucks were LOUD. Can I borrow some earplugs, Katelyn?

I did a little sight seeing while I waited for Daddy to get done with work. I went to the Washington Memorial Park and saw the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the American Revolution. I didn't even know that there was such a thing.

Click on the picture and it should enlarge enough for you to read it.

Hopefully, I'll have more pictures to put up later tonight.
I hope all of you are behaving for Grandma and Grandpa

Brianna- be good for Grandma tomorrow
Robert- try to be quiet part of the day and don't forget to study your verse
Katelyn - don't forget to look for and study that poem for the mother and daughter banquet.
If you can't find it call Amy B and see if she can read it to you over the phone.
David- make sure you do your homework and study your verse! Don't forget.

We love and miss all of you. tell Grandma and Grandpa we said "hi".
