So I had a little photo session with Miss Isabella today, just before taking her to school. It's BLUE day at her class so we had to pick the perfect outfit for her to wear. I thought she was gonna wear this for picture day but, I dont think they will have one at this particular school. So anyway, this blue dress is so dang cute I just had to take pictures of her in it. I wish I would have remember to take pictures of her yesterday, it was PINK day yesterday and she had on pink from head to toe. So cute! Darn! Anyway, here it is.....her blue dress!

Saturday was our official Anniversary and I am glad we had the chance to celebrate it....ALONE.... TOGETHER. The only thing that was bad, was that I didn't get to take a picture of it. HOW SAD am I? How could I do that? I cant believe, an avid scrapbooker and picture maniac.....ME....didnt take any pictures.
We got to dress up a little and when I say dress up, I mean not in our jeans or shorts. hee hee hee. We had a couple of people offered to babysit the kids and of course we took the chance. We got busy during the day trying to look for places we could go to that we normally don't get to go and finally came down to this fancy smancy French restaurant in a hotel somewhere and Bonefish Grill. I really didn't feel necessary to go to some place fancy and spend crazy money on food so I asked to go to the latter. Bonefish Grill it is!

It was actually not bad and pretty good on the price I might add, for someplace a little nicer than the norm. It may not have been fancy or totally overboard but it was nice to just sit there, talk, laugh and spend time together like that. Jorge had quite a few of their drinks so he was good but I myself cant drink before eating. The food was GREATE! Jorge ate all his but I couldn't. After eating the appetizer (fresh fried calamari) and sharing Jorge's clam chowder soup, I barely touched my dinner. But it was great. I think we are going back there again. It was a seafood place and we decided it was best to order everything seafood instead of pasta or steak. DUH! We had a great time and we even had a chocolate brownie with ice cream that our waitress had put a candle on for our anniversary. It was really sweet of her and we blew it out together. I secretly wished for a hundred more anniversary together. Fingers crossed it comes true. : )
After dinner we went to the movies and we saw the new Batman movie (The Dark Knight). We have been wanting to see it for the longest time and boy was it worth it. Nothing like a grown up movie you can just sit and enjoy with out any interruption from the kids. It was kinda long and a bit weird not having the kids but it was great. Man, batman looked good in that movie. I really enjoyed it.. can you tell. And that's it, nothing crazy! Just a great time with the one I LOVE!

ELEVEN year's together baby!

Today is our JOTP anniversary and on the 16'th is our church wedding anniversary! I must say that, it has been such a fun ride with my hubby. And time has gone by so fast and I can't believe it's already 11 years ago since we first got married. Jorge truly is my best friend and knows me so well. Can't help but smile and laugh when we are together. I have so much fun and act like a teenage girl in love when I am around him. No plans tonight, but hopefully this Saturday we can get away for some needed alone time. Looking forward to a nice dinner and a grown up movie (not a cartoon). Yeah, we are boring like that...but it's alone time and we will take it. LOL!

Happy Anniversary My Love!!! No trade in's yet! Woo hoo!

School's back in sessions

So today is the first day of school for my kids. Bitter sweet for me, since it is Isabella's first year of Pre-K. I will surely miss our fun times hanging out at home. She was my shopping and running around buddy. She did everything with me and I cant believe she is such a big girl now and already in school. I must say she has been waiting for this day for soo long. For as long as she can understand what brother was able to do, being at school, she has wanted to go to school too and do the same things brother gets to do.
They woke up early and their clothes were clean and pressed, ate breakfast and got to take some first day of school pics to share. Let's see how long I can keep this up, ironing and waking up early and not rushing them. I hope to keep this year stress free and hoping that waking up early and making them breakfast and getting both of them ready wont be soo hard. I am sure if I just keep to my schedule I can do. I am a night owl and luv to stay up. So wish me luck! They were both very excited to go to school. Unlike all the other kids I know. Isaac gets to ride the school bus which is awesome since the bus stops right in front of the house and Isabella has to be dropped off and picked up. I said goodbye to her like 4 or 5 times and she was just looking at me like. OK already! You said good bye so many times already! And the other kids were holding on to their mommy's and daddy's, but Isabella had none of that. She was ready! I am a little sad and emotional today. But I am sure after my grocery shopping, cleaning up the house and preparing for dinner will erase that sadness to tiredness. Is that even a word? hee hee

Funny video

I guess I have been really thinking about my kids and how both of them will be in school next week. This is a big deal for me, since I wont have a baby with me at home. Anyway, I was digging through pics and saw this video of my son's Thanksgiving School Show when he was in Kinder garden. Isabella was only 1 years old. There is a FUNNY part when I catch her dancing and well you see her reaction. My kids and I have been having a fun time watching it over and over again laughing at Isabella's reaction. Watch and see what I am talking about.

Maybe its just being her mom, but I really thought her reaction was so funny!

Bad bad blogger!

I know right!

Sorry I have not been around. Life has its tendency to throw you off your game. Hence the reason for why I have been absent. After CHA, I come home to semi messy house with so much catching up on laundry, cleaning, cooking and taking care of my babies and yes that is including the biggest baby of them all my husband. Only to find out he was leaving for San Antonio for a week just a day after I got back. URGH!
So that means no rest. Kids are still on summer break but we finally got some time to get ready for the new school year. I can't believe my babies are getting so big. Isabella will start her Pre-K in about a week from now. She has her school exam this Saturday and then Monday we do our parent conference in her school and then a couple of day after that she starts school. Isaac is going on 3rd grade and he cant wait. I took them shopping this past Friday and Saturday. WE got everything for them during our TAX FREE weekend. Yay! So happy I was able to get everything they needed for school supplies as well as clothes. Not a lot of clothes but enough to sustain them till one of the grandmas come over to spoil them rotten. I am planning on taking pics of Isabella trying out her outfits and figuring out which one she will wear for her first day. I am so oober excited for her. She is just dying to go to school already and everyday she ask...."am I going to school today?" Aaagh stop growing up little girl.

Anyway, another new thing for us is, our realtor has decided to terminate her contract with us to sell the house. SURPRISE!!! I mean, ok we were not happy with how it was going as far as selling the house but this was a surprise. Did not see that coming. We gave her a chance becuz she is a friend. Oh well! So now we are in the process of finding a new realtor. It is not going well. Tomorrow I will have to decide becuz I have no time to mess around, wasting time we need to sell this house. If it was up to me I can go and rent it out right now. So that I can pack up all my crap and take to storage, move to an apartment with my kids and live off of what we will need until we have to move to Washington. It is going to be hard and hectic around here for me. Jorge is heading out to San Antonio only this time he will be gone for 4 months. YEP! You heard me right 4 freakin months for Officer school. So by the time he is done with that we have to pack and move to Washington State. NO time and no messing around. I am hoping with Jorge being gone and both kids in school I can get a job part time and or take some online classes and try to finish up my associates. Agh! who know what will happen.

So there you have it. My crazy life in a nut shell. I am playing with AMM August Kit right now but have not gotten very far at all. I am working on a mini and I am very excited about it. You know I will post my stuff when I am done so I don't need to remind you I will. Thanks for listening to my crazy blabbering and complaining and venting. But before I go here is a pic of AMM's August Kit Sophistication and also Kimmi Anchord is doing an online class for AMM starting Aug. 25th. So here is a sneak for that as well. Enjoy and have a great night!
