Awards, Festivals, & Chupacabras - Oh My!


Mommy's Idea

I can't believe it's Friday already, this week flew by!




We live out in the woods now, and so far we have seen wild turkeys, rabbits, a deer....and a mysterious unknown animal. We're pretty sure it's a chupacabra.



We have a fun weekend planned. The littles have a soccer game tomorrow, then we're planning on taking the kids to lunch at a new pizza buffet place.
Saturday night, John and I are going out for our anniversary.
On Sunday after church, we're going to our town's Spring Festival. I love weekends like this! Simple, but fun.




I got a blog award this week! I love me some Katertot. Here's the award:



And I have to list 7 Facts about myself.
Hmmm....here goes.

1. I love to vacuum. It's a sickness, I know.
2. I eat way too many Whopper's Robin Eggs at this time of year.
3. My 18 year old son is drawing and coloring a bunny rabbit right now. Don't ask me why.
4. My anniversary with hubby is on Saturday! 6 years.
5. My toenails are almost always painted purple. It's my favorite color, and that way I'm always wearing purple. It makes me smile.
6. It's taking me almost an hour to come up with these seven things.
7. I love camping. We haven't camped in forever and I am SO ready to go again!






The song of the week is from my girl T-Swizzle! The girls & I have been jamming to this one all week. Enjoy!

Simple but fun weekends are the best!

Congrats on the award. Fun. Robin Eggs are my weakness this time of the year, too. I just can't say no.

Hope you are enjoying the wildlife there. Those awards are so time-consuming--I'd rather not get them anymore but congrats! Weekends are the best--sounds like fun!

Happy anniversary!

Love the Chupacabra reference, are you a big X-Files fan? Love me some Fox Mulder.

I don't think you're ever too old to color!

Happy Friday!

It sounds like your new place is lovely! Well, except for the chupacabras! HA! I saw a Destination Truth where they were searching for the Chupacabra. Hehe!

Hope you have a wonderful ANNIVERSARY weekend!
Happy Anniversary! :)

Aw, you're in such a good mood.

I'm cranky from a week of sick kids, so perhaps I should excuse myself. ;)

Have fun this weekend!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Sounds like a busy weekend.
Happy Anniversary, have a great time!

Myya said...

Happy Anniversary. Mine is on Sunday (7 years). :)

Wanna come vacuum my house, I will TOTALLY let you... you may have to pick up A LOT in order to do it though LOL.
Easter candy is the worst... it gets me every year, for many many months!
Adorable that your son is coloring a bunny rabbit... nothing wrong with wanting to act like a kid whenever you can.
I love painted toenails, I always have mine painted some sort of pink.
I want to go camping too, it has been way too long!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I was trying to get through that whole FF list last night and just got tired. And went to bed. Happy 6th Anniversary. Have fun at soccer and congrats on your award!!! It always takes me so long to write 7 things too. Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend!

Amy said...

Oh, I am SO sorry that I clicked that chupacabra link. LOL!

Happy Anniversary!

I should totally get an unknown animal as a pet, but I ain't gettin' no chupacabra.

I friggin' love T-Swizzle. And, I'm 100% gonna be calling her that forever. Kinda like how I like to call Justin Timberlake J-Money. It's because we're close like that:)
