Funny thing Sydney said...

We were in Walmart...and Sydney looked at a bright pink tanktop...and said, Mom this would be nice for me. I gave her a hesitant look and said, actually I think that is not a modest shirt for you. The tank had a built-in bra with foam, etc....so not really intended for a 4 year old. Then she says, "Oh yeah, it won't look good on me because I haven't make-d my breasts yet, right?" Right, Syd, Right!

My MiaMaids


So tomorrow I am down to just 1 MiaMaid. *tear*
Happy Birthday Rachel! Love you. Miss you. Sad day for Alyssa and I...but never fear, Alyssa and I will stay strong! *silent tear*

Biggest Loser

So I LOVE Biggest Loser...
it seems to motivate me, however not that much these days! I am getting there. Anyway, enough about me...more about the show.

So I love how the Black team fell on their faces!! They knew that what they were doing wasn't a great idea....but they indulged anyway. It really proved the power that a temptation holds over you! Ooops! Oh wait, that's my life...falling into the temptations. Arghhhhhh! Anyway, enough about me...more about the show.

I am so sad that Mandi is gone...people may be mad at me for saying this, but...Ron should go home! He really isn't pulling his weight (pun intended) on the team. I know that he needs to be there, and I want him to be (in a way), but he is injured and can't do as much as the others. Don't get me wrong...I know...He is a great guy...awesome father...player...contestant...but come on. Mandi is more help to the team. Maybe that's the problem. Oh well. I am over it now! I am really proud of what she is doing at home! Man, I want to catch her fire! When this house is done...watch out...I will be on fire! Anyway, enough about me...

SNL Commercials

So we were just watching the SNL "just commercials" episode. Most of them were awful...but there were 2 that I remembered and loved. Enjoy:
1. Old Glory Insurance



2. Mom Jeans

Kaden and a Pop Tart

Kaden calls this Toaster Treat a "Pop Cart." He can't manage to get it right. So I coach him on pronouncing the "T." And this is what happens...

Babysitting Swap at the Laylands






Friday Night Fun!
I actually survived better than I thought I would!




Yes, I flipped a house...

...and quite frankly, I am quite TIRED! We have invested way too much money and way too much time. But, since the house is next door to us, we know that this will improve the value of my own home and the neighborhood as well. So, although I am quite sick of it...it was definitely worth it!
I am not done. I have about a week left of work. And then hopefully we can get renters in by March 15th. So, I'll post more pictures when it is clean and glorious. But I am so close...that I just want to post some pictures of before and after.

You want to win?!

I committed to do this challenge from Charmaine:

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me, just for you!

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same. (Don't worry, it can be a card or cookies or whatever - it doesn't have to be outrageous, just homemade.)

The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did...will win a homemade Erika gift! Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!

I think it sounds like fun...and it gives me something productive to do. Good Luck!

Hugs, Erika
