2010 Review Extravaganza!! Final Week

It is the fourth and final week of the 2010 Review Extravaganza!  I have had such a blast with all these wonderful ladies!

It's not too late to join the fun.  We will be leaving the linky up through Monday.  So come along and play with us.

I said yes, and took this picture.  Then, I posted this picture and a blogger I had never "met" asked permission to use it and write this inspired poem. Another special birthday! Lots  and lots of crazy hair
Then there was Halloween! Gothic Fairy A perfect fit for my little devilish angel No explanation needed heh heh 
I always ask questions whether they are random or a hot topic.  I also love to air my dirty laundry.  We lost a special friend from church.  She was a neat lady who lived a very full life, was kind to everyone and who is dearly missed.
Thanksgiving was a total blast with family and the missionaries.  I had about 17 people in my house that day.  It was noisy(but good noisy), the food was AMAZING, and there was laughter…

I Resolve To...

I resolve to:

Continue with my weight loss
Reach my personal goal
Maintain that goal
Exercise at least once a week to start
De-clutter the house
Be good to me (i.e.  regular haircuts, mani and pedi's once in a while) etc.
Learn one new thing

What are you going to do?

Come back tomorrow for the wrap of the 2010 Review Extravaganza!

Bolt on the Wii is rated E for everyone, look closely at the E.  It says: 10+  In other words, not meant for a 5 year old or a grown up supposed intelligent adult. So return it for Batman Leggos on the Wii.  A little better but stll 10+  At least this one I can figure out!!

Receive an awesome remote control car that does tricks and flips from your cousin.  Too bad it doesn't work.  Exchange for...ooops they are credit for the sale price and get a hot wheels track.  Take hot wheels track home only to realize it has been opened and ta…

Facing the Music

I think I will tell that tale tomorrow!

CA Girl Wants To Know....

Christmas fun.  It was filled with laughter, happy faces (and noises.) As usual, I didn't sleep very well the night before.  I think that only happened once when I was 17 and a total grouch.  But that was then and this is now.
Santa came!!! and there was much rejoicing!  (a skateboard) 1, 2, 3 stuffed kitties and she only asked for one!  Santa rocks. Santa knows everything!
What did I get?  Well I scored in the jewelry department.  Not from Santa though.  No he brought me something iPod Touch.  I was super good.  Husband got me the goods.  And so did my niece and my daughter and all three of them combined.  I also got a new lens for my camera.  It has auto focus!  So yeah...I have been playing.  I am excited to really get out and play with it.  I took a video or two (so far) with my iPod and Kristin took several a few videos with her video camera.  And Emily has been snapping away with her point and shoot.  Yeah everyone got spoiled.  Of course Rich got an iPod as well!  haha…

2010 Review Extravaganza!!

It is week three of the 2010 Review Extravaganza.  And that means we are now up to July-September!  If you haven't played along yet, there is no time like the present to jump in and start sharing.
Some of my favorite posts from July are (in no particular order):
When Push Comes to Shove Kid TVRed ShoesIn July we went to the beach a couple of times...

One time it was really JULY! And another time it was crowded. We went to a huge park with this fabulous art

We also had a mini family reunion.  And when I say mini, I really mean it.  My uncle's kids were all in town for a visit at the same so we all got together.
 My Aunt and Uncle and their kids. We also went to the mountains for the day.
August was a big month.  Ryan started school!  I could hardly believe it! My BABY!
Before school started we spent the weekend with Emmy and her family in the high desert of CA for a last hurrah's to summer vacation!
I hit another milestone in my weight loss journey.  I made it to the 20 pou…

Identity Theft

Someone is trying to steal my identity! It's true! I am NOT being paranoid!!  Am I? But I know what I saw!
Yesterday the kids and I went to see TANGLED with my mom and sister.  It's been miserable here in "sunny" California.  It has been raining since last week.  I tried to get a close spot.  Of course I did, it was raining!  I might melt!  I got the closet spot I could...which actually wasn't too bad.  And that is when I saw it!!  The car next to mine with a license plate frame that said:  California Girl! Oh no she didn't!!!
But oh yes she did!  Doesn't she know, that I am the one and only CA Girl!?  Who does she think she's fooling anyway!?  But then imitation is the highest form of flattery.
I will be posting my 2010 Reveiw Extravaganza tomorrow.  Remember you can link up anytime between Thursday and Sunday.
