Ten on Tuesday

1. We had a very nice long weekend-it was very hard to go back to work on Monday. Chuck and I are both anxiously counting down the days to vacation. {44 days-in case you were wondering...can't wait to drive until the map turns blue!}

2. Jackson had a particularly social Spring Break with not one but two days spent hanging out friends-he spent one day with his BFF & twin separated at birth, Otto, and we took his friend Everett with us to the park another day. Jackson has a much better social life than I do-I wish I were kidding.

3. Jarron and I were running errands the other night when he shared this little quote with me about middle school lunch:
"Mom, the girls sit on one side of the table and the boys sit on another. They are like cats and we are like dogs. The are pancakes and we are waffles. And we DON'T share the same syrup."

4. Not only did our Kentucky Wildcats win the NCAA championship {woot!}, but I also won my bracket challenge at work. All of my co-workers have to call me "Champ". I'm kind of awesome. ;)

5. I realized last night that Moose doesn't know what the word "filthy" means. He's been using the word a lot lately and I just assumed he knew it meant extremely dirty. Turns out he thinks it means "thirsty". Hmmnnn...suddenly, this conversation makes a lot more sense:
"Moooooooooommmmmm....get me more juice. I'm very filthy! Please, I'm so filthy."

6. We did a bunch of Easter related activities this weekend-including egg-dyeing and Easter at the Lakes'. We still have another Easter to go with the Sawyers' this weekend. Jackson told me Saturday night that he didn't believe in the Easter bunny and then Sunday when he saw his basket, he said, "Wow. There must be an Easter Bunny! I got a Lego Batman set and Mom would have never thought to get me that!" Hmph. Later that night he caught me finishing off the Starburst jelly beans, so I'm pretty sure he's back to thinking I'm the Easter Bunny but who knows.

7. I discovered another amazing app on my iPad, called Flipboard. Again, I'm probably late to the party on this but it's pretty cool. It takes all of your social media {facebook, twitter, google reader, even news sites) and puts it into one tidy little place and formats it into a 'magazine' type format. If you don't have it, you should go check it out. And it's FREE, because-this girl-doesn't pay for apps.

8. I have done zero scrapbooking in the last 3 weeks and I am dying to get down to my craft room and get a layout or two done.

9. I think my sister in law must put crack in the cupcakes she makes. Because they are seriously the most amazing things I have ever tasted. I. CAN'T. STOP. EATING. THEM.

10. Guess who has a birthday coming up....11 years old?!? Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

what a cool list! love them all!

sometimes it is good to have a break from scrapping - i just took a small one and now i am all fired up again. something does have to give a bit because i am getting a touch burnt out. I think i am going to be cutting back on my personal blog -- maybe???? just thinking. need more personal time and time with the kids and less time with the computer
