the linen pants lesson...on an important day

okay...this was a lesson that I had to learn the hard way!!!
I went out the this morning and bought a fitted pair of linen pants for my nephews first birthday party and one hour into the party they looked like the above picture ....M.C. Hammer pants. This is not a becoming look on a chubby girl trying to appear a little slimmer.
This was just a little PSA from a girl who knows from experience.
Better days are ahead!!

we couldn't stand the heat so we got OUT of the kitchen

Who makes muffins when it is 36degrees out????
We got as far as making the batter, lining the tins and licking the paddles.
The batter is waiting in the fridge for tomorrow morning....hopefully it will be a cooler day.

T.V or not T.V?

That is the question in this house.  Tonight I sat and watched 3 hours of nonsense on t.v..  Most of it was of the train wreck that is jon and kate +8.  I have no feelings towards this show and lord knows had tons and tons of other things that needed to get done but instead i just sat cuddling with the baby and mindlessly watched.  
This was a t.v. free household for 6 whole months last year.  We watched dvds on friday nights but that was it.  I really enjoyed the peace, productivity and creativity that came with this tv free time.  We listened to more music, imagined more and it seems that we connected more.  I want this back.  Mission organization took a back seat to jon and kate (both of whom I have a very hard time tolerating).  Lady A is very quick to ask for the "t.d." and most of the times i am also quick to oblige because it is the easy thing to do.  
Mister had a very difficult time without the t.v. and I think it would be very hard to convince him to cancel cable again.
Perhaps we could go 3 days a week without t.v. and see how that goes.... it is worth a try.
