Unother Favorite Mother's Day

From Dates to Diapers is also holding a Mother's day contest, so I have to write about Unother Favorite Mother's Day (yes, I'm totally stretching with my letter challenge, lol)

I guess that would be my very first Mother's day. On my first Mother's day I was pregnant :) So my first one with my baby was in 1998 & she was about 8 months old. We actually didn't do anything special, went to visit my mom of course.

I remember feeling so happy to be a mommy of such a beautiful little darling. I had wanted one daughter so badly, and my dream came true!

I wish I was better at scrapbooking back then or even blogged at the time. I do not have that many memories from my first few mothers day. The sad thing for me though, is I remember my husbands first father day that June quite a bit. We went to a barb-q & I even remember the pictures we took without having to look for them.

If you want to write about being a mom, a favorite mother's day, something about your mom, check out the contest here to enter to win a Sandisk USB flash drive!

Tired Tired Tired

Anyone else exhausted from entering all of those great bloggy giveaways? I finally got through the list a bit ago.

I've also had a busy week. My 5th grader has so much stuff going on since this is her last year at Elementary school. We've been doing this great field trip to Starbase at our local military. It is 5 sessions for 5 hours each. The same parent has to go to each one for security reasons, so I have been busy with that. Last week, she went to visit the middle school & this week I got to go see it. It is a newer school, and is set up totally weird. Hopefully she does ok. They do a really good job of separating each grade from the other.

Both girls also had a birthday party today at a local bouncing zone. That was fun, but too much excitement this week. My house is a mess, my email is insane & I need to do laundry, lol. Have to get some sleep, another day of dance tomorrow. Plus I have a book that I am dying to finish!

Remembering a Favorite Mothers Day

Mommies United is having a great Mothers Day contest right now. Share your Mothers day memories & you can win a Sandisk flash drive. I'm trying to use these as extra backup for my pictures, since I recently lost all my pics, I really need this!

One of my favorite Mothers day was a few years ago. My husband & I took both our girls to the park. The girls played on the park, we took a walk in the Natures tail. The Ice Cream man even drove through the parking lot & we got ice cream. It was a very nice day & I got some great pictures. I love looking back at how sweet they were. Now they are both in elementary school full time, they both have tons of friends & lots of activities.

Earth Day 2008 is TODAY

Earth day has always been a favorite of mine. I was really into Helping Animals & the Planet in Middle School & High School. I have been thrilled with how much attention the Earth has been getting in recent years. Wish it happened sooner, but am thankful to see more & more people getting on the bandwagon. Earth Day, which was founded by US politician Gaylord Nelson as an environmental teach-in in the late 1960s, is celebrated in many countries each year on April 22.

Here are some links to enjoy ~

Now go enjoy the Earth today. Take a picture of your kids hugging a tree, they are the future and we want them to have a save place to live!

Quite the Memory

Somehow in high school I started saying the word Quite before things & it turned into a funny inside type joke between me & my best friend. That got me saying it all the time. I even catch myself sometimes now using it. If it was cold outside, it would be Quite Cold or Quite Hot. Something wouldn't be hard, it would be Quite Hard or Quite easy. I would put Quite before almost anything, I even got my friend saying it. No idea where it came from, just being a silly teenager I guess. I have to remember that middle school & high school girls can be Quite Silly at times. My oldest is about to start Middle School, it should be an interesting journey for me to watch her growing up.

Monday Contest Round up

Here are just a few of the great contests that around the web right now ~

Weekend Snapshot

I haven't had a chance to upload this weekends pictures yet, so this pic is from the previous weekend. My oldest took 2nd place at Science Olympiad in the Crime Busters category. They did really well getting 100%. The only reason they didn't take first is another school with one extra kid finished just a bit quicker.

We had a Dance competition all day yesterday. We got there around 12:30 & didn't get home until 11:30pm. So tired! The girls did really well. The production number took first place & they were up against a really cool Lion King number. The Hip Hop took 2nd. A little upset because they are dancing to Tricky {run dmc} & there are a few parts where they yell out "huh". Well this is a snooty comp & I guess there is no talking aloud, so they lost points for it. The girls had no idea. Oh well, 1st place went to our studio as well for a number that mine wasn't in. Our studio kicked butt winning a ton of awards!

One more competition to go this school year in May. Can we say Relieved? Figures too, it falls on the big County Science Olympiad comp. Hoping to squeeze both things in, but am doubting it.

If you don't normally read my blog, I'm giving away a $25 gc to Target this week.
