The reasons why my legs are not shaved...

1. Even though I have been doing it since the 5th grade I still suck at it. I either cut myself or miss giant patches of hair.
2. I work at least 80 hours a week.
3. I would take ten more minutes of sleep over shaving my legs any day.
4. With three mini's I never get an uninterrupted shower.
5. I have barely figured out that Intuition razor thing I have. (Why does the bottom lotion run out WAY before the top)
6. I have been married for more than 10 years.
7. I am wearing jeans or pants until May so whose gonna see em?

I do promise that if you see me all dressed up I have shaved my legs, good thing is that only happens on rare occasions.

Bert's Big Adventure 2009

I am still on cloud nine after the sendoff party yesterday!

We have a morning radio show here in Atlanta that puts together a trip every year for 14 children with disabilities or illnesses to go to Disney World. They include everyone in the family, mom, dad, the siblings, EVERYONE gets to go! It is such an amazing thing and Monograms wanted to get involved!

I have wanted to get involved for the past two years but was not quite sure how. This year the opportunity walked right into the store! I was so excited to get the chance to work with this group and provide some fun but functional items for the families.

So this year, Monograms made family tote bags and t shirts for the families of Bert's Big Adventure! Check out our handy work!

We also, as a thank you, made waterbottles for the on air personalities...check out Jenn and Melissa with their super cute waterbottles...

They gave Vicki and I staff T Shirts from the event!

Please check out their website You can see all they are doing to help these families escape from real life and be spoiled for four days! It is an amazing event each year and they can take all the help they can get! Maybe you know a family who needs their help or can help in other ways!

It warmed my heart to see all the kids and their parents smiling and having a great time at the sendoff party yesterday! I hope we can continue to work with them in the future! I am already working on next year's version!

Pay it Forward!!!!

I'm a Dumba$$....

So last night my fabulous assistant and I headed downtown to stay at a hotel because we had an early event and thought it would just be easier (read sleep later). So after her small group meeting she swung by to pick me up. We head down to the hotel around 10pm. Excited to hang out an work on the website! We get there (30 minutes later) and I look in the backseat for my bag. It's not there!

I left it on the dining room table! So I call and wake up Titan Boy to ask him to put it outside so I can come back and get it and not wake up the household. He laughs, but does it!

So we get checked in, get our key, and head back to the suburbs for my stuff!

I have lived in Atlanta my entire life, I have been driving these roads for 19 years. I went the wrong way on 285!!!! Yes, the wrong way!! And I did not realize it until I had been going the wrong way for 20 minutes!!! Ugh!!!!!

So needless to say, what should have taken 45 minutes took just under 2 hours!

When we finally got back to the hotel it was all we could do not to pas out on ourselves!

Some days I am just a dumba$$!!!

The Obstacle Course

As as self proclaimed "super hero", I realized something today...every task a mom has to do is pretty much the same as running a military obstacle course. There is a hurdle at every possible spot and many times you miss something so you have to go back and try again...this theory applied to me trying to get Sassy Tahoe to a birthday party today. Here is a little sample of how this course went for me...

-Chase Sassy Tahoe upstairs to get in the shower...obstacle #1 introduced: the bathroom that is a total disaster cause Littlest Tahoe wanted to play bubbles in there
-After the shower getting Sassy Tahoe dressed...obstacle #2: everything I pick she hates so I have to continue to dig throw laundry piles to find something she is willing to wear
-She is dressed but we still have to brush hair...obstacle #3: all hair brushes have disapeared
-Searching for hairbrush...obstacle #4: Littlest Tahoe crying on the stairs cause he cannot go to the birthday party..PWEEZ MOMMY!!!!
-Hairbrush found, hairbrushed and the race begins for me to get dressed...obstacle #5 Oldest Tahoe now wants to talk to me about what he and his friends did on Friday afternoon. Really now?
-I'm dressed and heading to wrap the present...obstacle #6: wrapping supplies are in 15 different places! Run up and down two sets of stairs three times before I finally settle on a cellophane bag and cute bow!
-Finally headed to the door with Sassy Tahoe, Me dressed in something almost matching, present in hand, on time...obstacle#7 The address of the birthday party? I think I know where it is but have to google it just to be sure...

No wonder I am exhausted. Everyday is like boot camp around here.

I think I am going to contact all those video game makers about making a "supermom" video game, starring me, of course!

just curious...

Why do the hairs that stick up and stand out on top of my head have to be gray?

Why can't they be brown or highlighted blond?

I mean really, it's as if they are screaming "I NEED TO DYE MY ROOTS!" from across the room.

It's not like I don't know that I need to visit the bottle of lady clairol.

and I would pluck them out but then I really would have thin hair cause they are starting to out number the others...
