Today is the first day of school for DD14. And her first day of high school!! That's scary and fun all at the same time. She was nervous, but so excited!! Then she spilled a whole can of Slim Fast on her bedroom carpet! What a mess, I still haven't gotten it all cleaned up!!

Hey ladies . I got back from my trip last night & I missed you all. I sort of skimmed through the pages, but I know I missed a lot. It's good to see some planning going on. I'm flexible so whatever happens, it's all good to me.

Beth, Wendy & Deb- So sorry you won't be going in October. You will all be missed, but I totally understand why. If I wasn't local, I probably wouldn't be able to make it either.

Heather- Sorry to hear about your pregnancy . I know it's God's plan, but it doesn't make it any easier. I'm sending you tons of baby dust your way . You are a great mother and deserve another gift in your life.

Dawn- Hope you had a fab time in San Francisco. Hugs and light to you .

Mel- Happy Belated birthday!!!! What a cute hubby you have. And congrats on the news of the new grandbaby .

I know I'm missing a whole lot, but hope everyone is well.

Just a few quick highlights from our trip:

-Wine tasting at some winery in Napa??? (can't remember the name)
-Sierra Nevada brewery in Chico. Boy beer really stinks when they are making it. It made me & DS sick .
-Burney Falls (what a beautiful waterfall). It was a large waterfall with a bunch of smaller waterfalls (I'll try to post a picture).
-I got eaten by mosquitos while camping.
-Jelly Belly factory tour (love me some jelly bellies).
-Six Flags Discovery Kingdom (it was fun, but definitely not Disney). But I did love that it was a mix between themepark & animals. We got to pet an elephant, feed giraffes, sea lions & dolphins, see white tigers & ride some rides.
-California Science Academy museum in San Francisco. This gots to be the BEST museum ever. It was so cool & I could have spent a few days there.
-Bubba Gumps & Ghiradella on Pier 39. I had a gift card for Bubbas or else we would have ate somewhere else.
-Pea Soup Andersons on the way home. My kids saw this on the food network and were excited to eat her. It was cute & the pea soup was good.
-Solvang for some danishes.

Well that was the jist was our trip. My grandma had a wonderful birthday & was so happy to have all of her kids, grandkids & great-grandkids there.

It sure smells yummy. If it doesn't turn out good, I will have to spell out my prep steps one by one to see where I went wrong. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

We are having a lazy afternoon after running errands all day. Thank goodness it cooled down some here - high today was 88 - not bad.
Hi Gals,
Trying to get caught up but you'll go way to fast for me. I have been very distracted with life, but log on when I can.

Linda, I always make that cake with fresh peaches when they are in season here. Like right about now, actually! Yum!

I really want to come to the trip. Maybe if I enter Heather's contest and win, that would give me the excuse that I need. Hmm....

Happy Bday to Mel and Courtney.

Last year, she wasn't having anything for breakfast so this is better than nothing. And it's got protein in it, which will hold her until lunch time. We're trying to figure out something for her for breakfast and this was the first thing to do. She doesn't like the Carnation Instant Breakfast stuff too much, but she will eat yogurt (like mom) so that may work as well. It just needs to be something quick, and a drink is easier because she can drink it on the way to school.

Onto a different topic, I found a Toy Story Midway Mania strategy guide on YouTube, just for you, Donna!!

Welcome back Katie! Thanks for the well wishes.

Stacie! Don't be helping Donna out, she'll make me look bad. I'm horrible at those games.

I love the yogurt smoothies you can buy for a quick breakfast. They are not cheap though. Nothing beats a granola bar in my book. I eat one around 6 am and it holds me until I eat lunch around 12:30 (on a good day).

Hi Tracey!

Hey to everyone, have a blessed day.

Heather

Dawn, yes, I do get bummed out when they go back to school. There are some days when they are all bickering that I cannot wait for school to start, but when it actually does, it's so quiet in here and I miss them.


Stacie, wow, high school!! That will be Adam in two weeks. His first day of high school. I know he's nervous even though he won't admit it, and I'm worried for him. HS these days is so tough. They expect so much and some of those kids are scary looking!!!!!


Katie, welcome back!! Sounds like a great trip. I love danishes in Solvang. Yum. Notice out of everything it's the danishes that stood out for me.


Tracey! You ARE coming on the trip. You said so in Vegas remember?? Or did that spiked frozen hot chocolate make you forget? lol Well, luckily I have witnesses.

I know! Some kids are pretty scary looking!! But our kids will do fine, right? She is so excited that there will be kids her age at our October meet. Especially the boys... Should be a fun time! Maybe things will change for you, Beth, before then and you can come!!

Hey Girlies!
Just checking in before I head out the door to do my shopping for the first part of the week. Costco and Safeway today!

It's going to be a hot day here today--they're forcasting 100!! I wish I couldgo to the beach, but it's just not in the schedule.

Trying to get everything done before I can't lift more than 10 lbs for 3 months. We are going school shopping today and getting pedicures. I am on a lovely clear liquid diet today (ok I snuck 1 diet coke in this morning) and get to do all that lower prep stuff tonight. Will try to jump on again before bed. My daughter isn't handling it to well, she's 15 and a little emotional. Well I'm hoping to have more time on the boards after I get home from the hospital!

Patty
Good luck on your surgery.

KerrTggrrr.. Yeahhhhhh..You are BaCk!!! You were missed. In fact I even asked Donna about you a couple of months ago.
Hi Dawn . You are always so positive. For me to be that positive on a cloudy Monday morning I really have to make a concious decision to do so!

Thanks for thinking of me. I am back for probably another 2 weeks or so, then will be MIA again (as work is expected to pick up again in late Aug/early Sept).

Thanks for sharing! My DH & I have gotten the alien one & balloon one. The hardest by far are the jumping plates. That totally made me want to go activate our AP this weekend & not wait until Sept. Patience, Kerry, patience!

Yikes try to stay cool running those errands. We have to keep a cooler in the van for transporting groceries back home. The store isn't far at all, but the van gets so hot everything would melt before we got home!
