Phoning in the weekend

I have a riveting post for y'all today.


Our weekend actually was busy, but we ended up cancelling some things


a) the van continues to occasionally smoke- even though D "fixed" it with plumbing materials

b) I wasn't feeling the greatest

c)  We were all whooped after a crazy busy week

d)  All of the above.

So anyway.......

I started documenting the weekend (starting on Saturday) just because it's so riveting.

I woke up to the sound of my puppy chewing on something.  On my bed.  This means she had to go get her chew toy upstairs, bring it up on our bed, and chew.  Guess what she brought?

My favorite pair of summer sandals- that essentially goes with EVERY sundress I own!

To ease the saddness of my sandal loss, I stopped at the Starbucks drive-thru
while errand running.

(Thank you to our accountant for the FREE Starbucks gift card for our referral)

Filled up with gas. 

It's a sad sad day when $30 doesn't even get you up past 1/2 tank.

Anyone know what the price per gallon was before Obama took office?

I dare ya to google it.

I took the boys to see a matinee.

Once a week, they show an (older) movie for free (for the kiddos) and parents are only $4.

(too bad they don't discount the TEN DOLLAR POPCORN COMBO!!!)

But the boys LOVED Spy Kids 4, and I got a nice little snooze in.  :)

We came home to a nice surprise....

D was done early with his morning job and decided to start tearing out the electrical wiring in the old house!

The "helper"

Saturday night was our biggest school fundraiser of the year.

It's a fun fun night, but a lot of work.

Here's everyone getting ready for the live auction portion of the evening.

Sobriety was varied between stone cold sober and d-r-u-n-k (only a select few).

(We're Lutheran's, it's ok)

It's funny....and it increases bids.  :)

My hottie bidder-spotter stayed close to my "number recording" station.  :)

He loves me.  :)

Sunday ended the weekend in a very low-key day.

I stayed home and rested while D and the boys attended church.

We chilled out after they returned home.

I watched the Detroit Tigers beat the Chicago White Sox.


Then, I continued in my resolution and decided to clean out the pantry of old food.

I had 1/2 package of marshmallows and a HUGE bag of rice krispies.

I thought about making rice krispie treats...but needed more marshmallows.

Enter:  Easter Peeps.

Doesn't it look like a Peep Jacuzzi? 

Happy Monday!

Aren't you glad you read this riveting post?~?~?

What I want to know is how those rice krispie treats turned out with those peeps. It kinda is making my mouth water.

"A peep jacuzzi?"! HAHAHAHAHA!! More like the wicked witch of the west, 'I'm melting! I'mmmm melllttttiiinnnggg!!!!"
Those kinds of school fundraisers are awesome! We had our first one and it is so much fun! I have, however, since been banned from silent auctions. Something about me increasing bids without realizing there were only a couple of minutes left in bidding. Oops. Well, at least it went toward the school!

I love the peeps jacuzzi... and I always love reading your posts, it's like having a conversation without having to be on the phone (scary).
