The stars were aligned!

It seemed like the stars must have been aligned last night. Daughter C was at grandma's for pony camp, son O went to sleep over at cousin's and son A went to a friends for a baseball sleepover. Wait, that means the D and I were free! Although D is not feeling well due to an abcessed tooth that can't come out till next week we still went out to dinner and a little wine bar with live jazz. All I can say is the moon must have been blue!

Monday, Monday

Yes it is another Monday, they keep sneaking up on me. We had a great weekend at my mom and dad's. The kids swam in the pool and C rode the pony really well. Of course I took a ton of pictures because the kids were super cute in matching Lilly suits but havn't had a chance to down load yet so stay tooned!

Whew, what a day!

Today my sister and I took all the kids (her 2 and my 3) to the Oakland Zoo with my grandmother and her husband. The cousins all love each other and had a bal. Just check out these cuties!

3 Preppy Kids

I snapped this shot last weekend as kids were getting ready for church. How cute are they?

Pink and Green vs. Neutrals

Here in northern California it seems I am constantly waging a battle between my favorite bright pink and greens (nicely set off with navy of course) and the neutrals black, beige and grey that most of my friends wear. For example, I went to drinks with the girls last week and wore white jeans with my new meri top and a bright pink Jcrew cardi. Almost everyone else had on dark wash jeans and a black or grey top. My down vest is a bright green lilly, everyone elses is black. I certainly stand out, not a bad thing I suppose! I find the neutrals depressing after a while. Even when I wear my dark work suits I add pink jewlery!

30 Day Shred

Well I had read so much about Jillian Michaels 30 day shred dvd that I had to try it. Over the last 12 months, since going back to work full time I have noticed a creep of about 5 pounds.. Not much you say and since I'm 5'8" it's hard to see but I do see it. Well I had thought of myself in pretty good shape but the level 1 video kicked my booty and on day 2 I'm pretty sore. Of all od places to be sore, my calves are killing me. I'll keep you posted on the progress!
