I've only been to San Fran once and it was a couple years ago, so I'm not much help. But, I just wanted to say have a great kids-free time!!! Hope you get lots of tv watching time in. (that's Diva code for...well, you know...
I like visiting socal now. since I moved away it just became to congested with people. Living in Wyoming for 5 years spoiled me with wide open spaces. Gas prices are a joke down there as well as up here.

Yes, I hope their are lots of some good TV shows playing...

The chocolate cannoli from the restaurant are divine. So good that I have tried to find a copy cat recipe. I could go on. I have to admit that most of the time I have been in San Fran, it was to shop. but I have seen some good plays, and have done the touristy thing also. Have fun!!

Kuletos....cannoli.....now on my list


Katie, Having the kids at your house is wonderful, cuz you know where they are. But, I can see how it is having it's toll on you. The kids must like you and feel comfortable to want to stay with you. So maybe you can set some rules. Tell them that you like having them over, but you and Laila need your sleep. Give them some boundaries. 18 kids is just too much!!!Way too hard to keep track of! !! That's just plain nuts! Not to mention the food you are going through! Anywhos, giving advise is easy. Being able to actually follow through and doing it is hard. And you have probably given this plenty of thought already. Big hugs to you. You are doing a great job so far as a single mom. Keep your chin up.
Boundries...yes....boundries....they are a wonderful thing!!!!!

I agree and more hugs Jen

Also, sign up for the bay area emails groupon and living social. You should be able to get some good deals. I have a friend I travel with that always finds us good places to eat from the "Diners, Dives and Drive-Ins" show.

My vision for this trip was to stay at a real small hotel and eat where the locals eat. I found groupon (thanks Beth) and already have it looking for deals in San Fran. On too finding "Diners, Dives ad Drive-Ins" Thanks for the suggestions
Take care all.

Hello Ladies!

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy Easter weekend.
I get off at 2 pm and I cannot wait.

Andrea - your son is adorable.

Congrats to Trudi and Sarah.

And I love that D&B retro bag, super cute!

Super cute photo, Stacie!

So, here's the latest chapter in hubby's "employment drama". Last week he worked Tuesday - Friday. On Wednesday, the boss told him he would start on the payroll as an EMPLOYEE this Monday (April 2). Last Friday he didn't have time to do the HR paperwork, so he said, no problem, we'll do it Monday. So, Russ shows up for work Monday morning. Boss comes in, gets called into a meeting up in Napa and is gone for the rest of the day. *sigh* Russ goes back to work Tuesday. Mid morning, he sees one of the guys carrying a box to his car and the boss pokes his head in and tells Russ that he just let Scott go. Scott was Russ' boss at his previous job and how he found this company in the first place. Asked Russ if he's going to be OK working there still. Russ says no problem. Boss is too busy Tuesday to do HR paperwork. Says they will do it Wednesday. *sigh* So, Wednesday around 9:30AM the boss gets a call from his kid's school - come get your kid, they've got pink eye. So he has to go and pick up kid and stay home with them since he can't take the kid to daycare with pink eye. *sigh*. Yesterday, boss comes into Russ' office and tells him that hiring protocol from the home office is that they are required to run an ad before they can officially hire anyone. An ad gets run in Alaska (where the home office is) and locally. Ad ran today. Husband is billing for a full week of consulting, plus mileage. HR paperwork now moved to Monday. *sigh* He went to a meeting up at the Napa jobsite today and it looks like he will be up there on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for at least the foreseeable future. The fun times never end, I tell ya.

Ok, Wednesday night, I'll send you my number as soon as I post this.

I didn't go to the concert last night, I was so tired I just didn't feel it. So I stayed home and did my nails (photos on FB) with a fun spring green color. Tonight I'm going to see Eden's Edge tho, it should be fun!! I'm looking forward to it. I have a few things I have to do after work and then I have to get home and get ready. Micah was supposed to meet me for dinner last night but he didn't get home until 10 so needless to say I ate without him, which annoyed me very much because the reason he was so late was avoidable. So he wants to go out tonight for dinner, but I have a limited time frame and still need to pack for tomorrow, I may just tell him we have to do it next week. Especially since it's Friday and wherever we go will have a wait.....
Man, the week just went by so fast.......

More Mouse Adventure Divas. We had a blast this spring. Any other Divas play MA card games in March? Amy & Stacie, did your team sit it out this time?

Stacie and Chris cute pics!!

Lisa what a nightmare. I hope it all gets sorted out soon!!

Trudi how fun. I would LOVE to be able to do that but doubt it would fare well on my pocket book LOL. And I LOVE that new Dooney. I SO want one of the wristlets. I have been dropping hints that that is what I would like for my birthday and we are going in June a few weeks later so we shall see.

I agree this week has just flown and we didn't even do that much but such is life I suppose.

We have a TON of stuff coming up too with the girls sports and school stuff so hopefully it will make the rest of the year fly by!! I am ready for summer break.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day and EASTER!!

Hello ladies!!!

I hope you are all having a good weekend. I can't believe tomorrow is Easter! This week went by so fast. I think the kids had a fun time. And I am pretty proud of finding things to keep them busy. Everything we did, we used coupons/discounts. Still pricey with four kids. But better than it would have been otherwise. And at least we had fun family time. I suppose that's priceless.

Everyone have a wonderful Easter tomorrow!! Enjoy time with family and friends.





Now time to catch up a bit with a mega multi-quote!

That's great. What a nice idea.

Easter has really snuck up on me. I usually decorate and we have a big easter egg decorating party. This year its not going to happen. All my Easter boxes are still in the rafters We are going to take my mom to brunch on Balboa Island, to her favorite restaurant, then going to my bother's in the afternoon, then I work that night. Kids are off next week, but we don't have any big plans for the week. My niece wants to have them over for a sleepover...which I'm hoping works out
I'm glad that Parker is doing better. I hope you all have a nice Easter. Your plans sound really nice. I love Balboa Island.

Happy Easter ladies! We just finished coloring more eggs! Brooke loved it, a lot!!! The baskets are (which I keeping calling stockings) are stuffed, eggs are ready & now just waiting forth bunny to visit!
When did Easter become a mini Christmas??

Capri- I have stayed at Worldmark Anahiem, 3 times in 4 different rooms.
Presidential Suite, super nice! Stainless everything, computer, jacuzzi tub, 3 bathrooms, wrap around balcony, more room than you could imagine!! 1 bedroom that was spacious too. 2 bedroom that was a bigger than the 2 bedroom at the Grand. All had full kitchens, across from a friendly 7-11, and Garden Walk. You can watch the fire works from the roof. Friendly staff, and very clean!
