It's the Daddy/Daughter Dance tonight for Girl Scouts. Kaila was soooo excited.

They are back and had a really good time. Kaila was ALL smiles when she walked in the door. Charlie said there were a lot of people there. They didn't dance as much as Charlie thought they were going to, but they did like a soul train dance, as well as a slow dance. I wish I could have been there to take photos :(

Valentine's Day wasn't the worst I've ever had. In fact, it wasn't bad at all. I was able to spend the day with my sinus-infected daughter. The poor little thing missed her party at school :( She just wanted to get medicine from the doctor to feel better. She's on the mend.

We were in the doctor's office and there was a bin with 4-5 different little lotions in it. So, I took one and proceeded to open it and dab some lotion on my hands. I then put the bottle in my purse. The look on Kaila's face was priceless and she said, "Uh! You're TAKING that!!!????"  I told her they were free and that that is what they are there for. I decided to try a different kind. So, I picked up a smaller bottle, opened it and dabbed more lotion on my hand. I then put that bottle into my purse. She was disgusted. She looked at me and stated in a warning tone, "Do NOT take another one!" - Ha! I laughed so hard.

That wasn't all the fun for the day though. We had to go to Wal-Mart to fill her prescription and had a little time to kill. I'm always in need of something. So, I took the opportunity to purchase a breast enhancing apparatus...a.k.a. a bra. The horror on her face as we walked down the aisle was hysterical! I started touching the bras and inspecting them. She said, "Do NOT put that bra near me! Tell me when you're done." Then she buried her head in her coat in the back of the cart. Sooooo funny!

Charlie and Nick went and did the Techno Hunt at the archery shop. It was Nick's first time and he did very well. After they returned home, we cooked some of beef from "Dinner." It was good, but our grill needs fixed. So, we're going to have to try some more. The kids went to bed fairly late and then Charlie and I cleaned up the kitchen and went to bed.

Before all that fun, I posted my newest sketch on Nuts About Sketches. It's a fun, easy sketch. Checkout what the other DT members created with it.

Well, according to the old ground hog, we'll have an early spring. We'll see about that. I know I'm ready to "play" outside. The kids are dying to jump in our lake :) I need some sun!!! I am sooooo pale.

Reading: I've started reading another book called, "Witch & Wizard" by James Patterson. It's already frustrating me, but there's always hope that the bad guys will get "theirs." It's been a fairly fast read so far.

Diet: What diet? The main struggle/demon in my life continues to prevail. I maintain a "lovely" weight eating whatever I want, but as far as continues to elude me. I refuse to give up and remind myself that tomorrow is another day. I so want to be thinner this summer.

Journal: As I type in my journal, I find my daily life what many would consider boring. I, however, find it most satisfying. There aren't a lot of people who are content. And my life, albeit "boring", is fantastic. I always look forward to tomorrow, but live for today.

House: My darling husband has taken it upon himself to make sure that WE clean the kitchen before going to bed every, single nite. Can I just say how happy that makes me? Keeping up with the daily HASSLE of dishes has been much easier with my AWESOME husband at my side. It takes no more than 20 minutes, no matter how many dishes there are. Plus, and don't miss out on this...WE get 20 more minutes...talking, spending time together...being productive at the same time. It's the little things, People...the little things.

As far as the rest of the house, I'm still working on it. It's a daily battle, but shall be won...within the next month or so.

Here is a layout that I completed for The Scrapping Spot's Layout Tag. I really enjoy that game. For more information on the next round, visit the forum.

Here is a layout I did for Nuts About Sketches..the other blog I have :) These two were so cute on our last trip to camp. They love to play in the fire. It just intrigues them and will keep them busy for hours. Checkout the giant leaf Blake is holding. I've seen larger leaves, but wow!
