Surpise On House MD

I am a total House MD watcher. I don't watch a lot of TV, but this is one show I have to watch! Even the reruns. Anyway last night, was a good episode, actually this whole season has been great! But last night Foreman and Thirteen kiss! Whoa, not expecting that one. Maybe I should have, looking at the previous episodes. Just like a few weeks ago, House and Cuddy finally kissed. This show get's my adrenalin going.

Here a seen from last nights episode...

Here a seen for a few weeks ago...

Beauty And The Beast

Last night my mom & I went to our local high school performance of Disney's Beauty And The Beast. I have to give the actors and crew 5 stars. It was an awesome performance. The leads were all superb . They're singing, oh, was right on. I kept thinking some of these singers need to go for an American Idol tryouts, they were that good.

Over 4 years ago, my mom and I went to Pennsylvania on a bus tour, and one of the things on the itinerary was a dinner & theater, which was Beauty And The Beast. Those actors were older and professional, and I LOVED the performance there. But I have to say, the High School performance was just as good as those who performed at that dinner & theater performance. I'm still in WoW. My mom was hesitant at first, because being on a work night for her, she'd be awfully tired the next morning. But she enjoyed it and was glad she went. She said it was worth it.

Also I encourage any theater teacher out there, who don't know what to perform for their school, do the Beauty And The Beast! It's a great story, that everyone loves!

I really recommend everyone to check out there local school theater. Those kids work hard, and who know, may someday be famous! Plus it's great to get involve with the community!

Found a clip of the performance on you tube. Hope they'll be more!

What Am I Suppose To Think?

I am so glad that this election is over with. I'm not really that educated about politics but I'm not stupid. I honesty didn't want to vote for either candidate. How can there be so many people in this country and have only these 2 candidates running for president? I wanted McCain because he felt safe. Obama I want the change. But with so much being said on the news, media, internet you just don't know what to believe. I'm not sure how to react to the win. I voted for McCain, and I really hope Obama can give us what he promises.

Mom's Day Off

I had a really nice day on Tuesday. Adam wanted me to get out of the house, since I'm there all the time. So I went to my best friends, Carrie's for the day. Well she got a new home, so we decided to meet at her old house, and I'd fallow her from there. Well, knowing Carrie, she's always doing something nice. So she said to a fallow her to her home and leave my car there because we got an appointment in 15 minutes. Luckily she don't live to far from her old home. So we got to her house and I jumped into her car and off we went. She brought me to get my nails painted. It was so nice of her. Then afterwords we went to Rosies for lunch. Then I spent the rest of the day at her house.

It was really nice to get out the house and do something besides being with my boys. Don't get my wrong, I love being with my boys, they are my life, but 24/7, a mom needs a break sometimes.

Pop Goes The Wiggles Live Concert

Thursday night me, Adam & Tristan went to the Wiggles concert. It was an early birthday present for Tristan. It was at the Verizon Center in Manchester NH. Took us 3 hours to get there, not to bad. The concert didn't start until 6:30 so we decided to stay at a Hotel for the night. Good thing we did, the concert ended at 7:45 and we all were tired. Luckily the hotel was only across the road from the arena, so we walked. Tristan had the biggest smile when the Big Red Car came out with Jeff, Anthony, Murray and Sam in it. That's when he comprehended what we were doing there. He later danced in aisle having so much fun.

At one point, the Wiggles all got off the stage to say hi the children. Of course, Tristan's favorite Wiggle is Murray, because he plays the guitar. I saw Murray coming up are aisle so I grabbed Tristan and said look who's coming...It's Murray! Murray came over and said hi to him. He had the best expression I'd ever seen. I wasn't able to get a picture of it, but it was the shock, happy, & glowing look. We all had fun!





My boys all went trick or treating last night. It was exhausting, and we only went to 4 houses. Hopefully next year it'll be easier. Tristan was a BIG green dragon, Brayden was a red dragon & Jayden was a pumpkin. I wasn't going to bring Jayden at first, because he's so young, but when I looked at I had to dress him up and have him join the fun. 5 houses were enough for all of them. We had a blast. I was able to capture 1 picture, as they were getting a little grumpy.

101 In 1001 Update

Over a few weeks ago I completed #67 Have $1000 in our Emergency Fund on my list. I forgot to cross that one off. Yay, so happy I got that security.

Working-Out Highers Your Weight?

Today was the first day to weigh in for the 6 week challenge, well no one told me that I was suppose to weigh in before I worked out until afterwords I went to the trainer and asked her if I can weigh in now. She told me I couldn't because when you work out you weight will be higher. It's amazing how you do learn something new everyday. So Wednesday, I'm going to workout again, but this time, I'll make sure I get measured and weighed before I work out.

2 Pounds Down

Yesterday I went to LA Weightloss to be weighed, I felt better getting on the scales this time because I knew I ate well all week with hardly no "Extras". I got on the scales and weighed in at 198...still a big number. The consultant reasured me that 2 pounds is a lot. Which is true, if I had gained 2 pounds I would have been devistated, so I'm very proud of loosing the 2 pounds.

Next week Curves is doing a 6 week challenge. I'm going to get weighed in on Monday. There will be different winners for different challenges.

1. Whoever looses the most weight
2. Whoever loosed the most body fat
3. (Don't remember...Fill In Later)

Plus there are other challenges that we have to do to qualify for other prizes...

1. Bring in a bag with a can of juice, cereal & meat/tuna fish in a can for H.O.P.E.
2. Loose 5 lbs or 5 inches
3. Do at least 14 workouts within the 6 weeks
4. Do a workout on Halloween with a costume on

I think it'll be fun...can't wait to do it!

Update on Lasagna

The crockpot lasagna was EXCELLENT! It was very easy to make and I invited my mom for dinner and she even said it was really good. I'm not a good cook, trust me. So recipes like this can really help someone like me.

How many stars am I going to give it...5*!

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Slow Cooker Lasagna

1 pound ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 can (29 oz) tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 can (6 oz) tomato paste
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dried oregano
1 pack (8 oz) no-cook lasagna noodles
4 cups (16 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 ½ C small-curd cottage cheese
½ C grated Parmesan cheese

In a skillet, cook beef, onion, and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomato sauce, water, tomato paste, salt and oregano; mix well. Spread a fourth of the meat sauce in an ungreased 5-qt slow cooker. Arrange a third of the noodles over sauce (break the noodles if necessary). Combine the cheeses; spoon a third of the mixture over noodles. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining meat sauce. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until noodles are tender. Yield: 6-8 Servings

Home Made Halloween Decorations

Now, I hate spending to much money on Halloween costumes. It's such a waist. My mother use to make costumes for my brother and I. They didn't have the money to buy something, so my mother would use her creativity to come up with something that we had around the house. She had this white dress that she wore when she's young for church. I was so petite that I was able to wear it for 3 years, for something different. One year I was a Princess, another year I was an Angel, and for another year I was a bride (my brother was the groom), that one is my favorite! So now I'm trying to do something simiular to that.

I found some ideas, and this is what I'm going to do for my boys.
Tristan who is 3, is going to be a Christmas Present. Brayden who is 19 months is going to be Cotton Candy. As for Jayden, I don't think he's going to go Trick or Treating this year. He's only 7 months, so maybe next year.

Here are the instructions for each costume...

Christmas Present

Materials Needed:
Appropriate-Sized Cardboard Box
Gift wrap
Ribbons and/or Bows
Any other items you use to decorate your gifts

You need to find a box that will fit over whomever is going to wear it and they should have free movement of their arms and legs. Cut holes in sides of the box for the arms to fit through. Cut the bottom out of the box for the legs to fit through. The shorter the box is, the easier it is to walk! Cut a round hole in top of box for the head to fit through. Wrap the box as you would a Christmas gift. Be generous when taping the cut sections by the holes in the box so the paper won't rip. Also embellish the box with ribbons, bows, and anything else you want.
Now, simply slip the box on (you can wear regular street clothes or just a dark outfit). You can even add a matching bow on top of your head

Cotton Candy Costume

Materials Needed:
White Sweatsuit
White Shoes
Safety Pins
4 or More Yards of Pink Tulle


How much pink tulle you need will depend on the size of the person. It is usually less than $1.00 per yard so you may want to buy extra! Iinstead of pink, you can use a light blue or other typical cotton candy color.
This costume is easy to make. Simply have the costume wearer put on the white sweatsuit and shoes and the loosely wrap them, from the waist up to over their head, with the tulle so it looks like puffing cotton candy! Secure the tulle using safety pins.

No Weight Gain, No Weight Lost

I went to LA Weightloss today to get weighed in and I was pumped up, I excercise 3 times this week at curves, I didn't eat any chocolate, I had only 1 can of coke this week, no snacking and felt pretty confident that I had lost something. But when I got on the scales is read the same as last week. I was so disapointed. I couldn't figure out what I did wrong. I did have pizza last night, but only 1 piece.

My consultant said it's probably because I'm not getting my water in and I'm not eating all the times I'm suppose to. My set up is that I eat breakfast, then a LA Lite, Lunch, LA Lite then dinner. I haven't been good on making sure I eat my breakfast, and I haven't been eating my LA Lites. So I'm going to push the water, because I don't ever drink it. The consultant recomended that I have a glass of water with every meal, this way it covers 2 servings per meal. I think I can do that. So let's hope for better results next week.

Visit From Mother Nature

Well about 3 weeks ago I was "LATE". I began to panic. About a week later I took a preganacy test, it was negative, the next day I took another one it was negative again. Well I still wasn't at ease. Mother nature visits me regularly without fail, and if she was late, the results would show 9 months later. I've expierence this 3 times. Well last week I took another test, again, negative. What's going on, I thought. I was so scared. Well today she visited me. I've never been so happy in my life. My finace' and I have been VERY careful, because another baby is not what were wanting right now, but if it had, I'd be scared and upset, but no baby would be unloved, under any circumstances.
