Busy Bee

This has been one crazy busy week, again!

I have been hanging out with my sister. We have had so much fun. She drove from San Fran with her 3 kids (to come to a wedding for her sis-in-law). Even though we are 5 1/2 years apart, we are best friends. I think we call each other at least 2-3 times a week! I am so inspired by her and she seriously has the best recipes and ideas for food. She has great taste in books and music and is just FUN to be around. Here's a run down of our time together:

  • Max's b-day party/dinner
  • Family dinners and sleep-overs at Nana & Papa's
  • Late night talks and just sitting together reading our books until we can't keep our eyes open any longer
  • Disney on Ice with our kids, Pat and Nana & Papa
  • Hanging out at the park for hours (having deep conversations while our kids play great together. I'm still laughing about Sierra playing so cute with Max and that silly red berry they found.)
  • Marshmellow Mint Chocolate Chip hot chocolate with popcorn watching our favorite shows

There is NEVER enough time when she comes and I never want her to go!! If only she or I lived closer to one another. Until then, HOORAH for the time we had together this week!!! ____________________________ I also had a boutique ("Simply Chic") on Saturday that was so much fun and I have so many orders that I'll be busy for weeks! And I also got a lot of my Christmas shopping done :) It's fun having a hobby for a business, but it's also very stressful. I have to tell Patricio how awesome he is. I was gone all day Saturday and came home to a CLEAN house! When I left for my boutique it was quite a disaster and I knew I'd have to deal with it later. Then to my surprise I came home and found everything sparkling!!! The kids were happy and the house was clean. There really isn't much more I could've asked for. OH, and his sweet mother brought us dinner! Gotta love mi suegra! So THANKS to an awesome husband who made my weekend! _____________________________

I was out of groceries and Whitney told me about Smith's having a huge sale...only it was Alpine. So I headed out to Alpine with Whit and we loaded up on cereal, bread, gatorade, granola bars and muffin mix! YAY! Thanks for the late shopping trip.


One of the reasons I'm so tired is b/c my kids are giving me grief again. It's like there is an invisible leash attached to me that they can't let go of. I haven't slept in my bed for 2 nights in a row. When I get up from their bed to go to my bed, they each wake up crying and then my night is shot. It takes forever for them to fall asleep and then I'm so tired I can't do anything else. I'm exhausted and ready for a clean start, a new week. Here's to Monday.

Wow you were very busy! You girls are so cute. I remember wanting to be just like you and Mindy. The only reason I know about new kids on the block is from you. By the way I'm suprized you missed the concert? I do love that you went to Disney on Ice. It's crazy the things we give up for our kids. :)

I feel exactly the same way about my sister the way that you do about Mindy. We call each other ALL the time, for recipes, for advice (especially with our kids!), to vent, and to give each other the support that only a sister can give. BTW, that's GREAT that you've received so many orders! :)

There will never be anyone who can replace a sister. I am so lucky to have so many of them. I am glad you two got some quality time together. I wish I could help you with your sleeping situation. I can only imagine how difficult that is.

Sisters are so fun to have around.
I wish my sister lived closer too! Sounds like you have been super busy. We need to have Lukas come over and play so you can get some work done.
