Happy Easter

Happy Easter everyone. I hope you all have a nice weekend and enjoy some time with your families. Wonder what they serve at Hooters for Easter? (B, any specials?) Can't wait to get some chicken strips.....mmmm...ranch dressing (or maybe blue/bleu cheese) Who's with me?

A bit of the motherland

I have a new love in the "girly" area of life. Boots No. 7 face wipes from Target are fantastic. For those of you who don't know, Boots is like the Target of England except we call it the "chemist". Anyway, Boots has a lot of products at Target now and I know that both my cousin and aunt use these face wipes and love them. I decided to give them a try as I had been using neutrogena wipes but felt they were hurting my eyes. The Boots wipes are very gentle and have a nice smell to them as well. They are great for using right before you fall into bed when you can't be bothered to take your makeup off. Try them. You won't be dissappointed. =)

Living in California

As I sit here at Panera on a Monday afternoon, it is quite clear that despite the high cost of living, crowding and pricey gas, California is a great place to live. I'm working outside, in the sun, in March! Some of the country still has snow! What???? God Bless, Podunk Wisconsin! Bring them some sun!

This weekend I slept for a total of 22 hours from Friday night til Sunday night. I think that it was greatly needed. Tim is a little in shock that I can sleep so much but I really needed it and still could have slept more I think.

In between my sleeps, I got all of our bills organized. With this being a leap year and all I totally forgot that the mortgage was due etc.....Fortunately, we have until the 15th to pay our mortgage so a few days late is ok.

I have rediscovered my love for diet 7up. As most of you know, I've been trying to cut down on my caffeine intake so that when I get pregnant it won't be too hard to cut out. Also, there has been quite a bit of research lately about caffeine making it harder to get pregnant as well, so I think it's best to cut it out as much as I can. As far as soda goes, 7up seems to have the least chemical content and the most "natural" ingredients. It's also super refreshing. I recommend it as a great middle of the night parched mouth drink as well. Yum yum.

Good news everyone

We don't owe the taxman any money. Yipee. We are thinking of paying off Tim's cars with the money we are getting back and then buying a new car at the end of the year. This will allow us to save a little more for a down payment. So now comes the question of what type of car we should get. What do you think, loyal readers?
