Finally Friday!

So excited the weekend is finally almost here! what a long week! Last night Ansleigh had her first play date with Riley! He is the son of a girl I work with and about a year older than Ansleigh. We went to the new Chick-fila by our house! Ansleigh didn't really know what to think of all the climbing and such but she had a lot of fun! I took pictures but they are on my camera and I can not find my camera cord right now! So I have attached one picture from after the play date where Ansleigh is having way to much fun with my diet coke cup!

What are your memorial day weekend plans? Tonight I am going to dinner with some friends. Tomorrow I am going to watch my little brother play baseball and then meeting Kelly to see Sex and the City 2 so freakn excited about that! Then Sunday I want to take Ansleigh to the zoo because I know she will love it and then Monday we are having a cookout at my dad and step mom's house. I am going to make the strawberry cake recipe that I posted about last week so excited because it tastes so good and its only one weight watcher point per slice! Well happy memorial day weekend everyone!

Oh the Joys of Toddler Stages...

Well this has been an interesting week for Miss Ansleigh since we have started a new school she cries every morning when I drop her off which is expected since she isn't fully used to it yet.  She has always stopped crying by the time I go by her classroom to drop off her lunch which is great and she has gotten nothing but great progress reports every day which I am so thankful for. Well Tuesday night I pick her up from school and about half way home nothing was making her happy she didn't want to watch Barney which is her current fav she didn't want juice she didn't want a snack she just wasn't happy. Well we went to Bebe and Pops that night for dinner Pops famous smoked chicken which Ansleigh normally loves and eats tons of well she screamed for an hr wasn't happy with me holding her threw her food on the ground threw her cup down threw her meme down which is what she calls her pacifier. Nothing was making her happy well finally it was bath time and she loved the bath and turned back into her normal self it was the weirdest thing. After her bath she ate her dinner and was fine. Well last night she started out doing the same thing but quickly ate her spaghetti and got in the bath and was normal Ansleigh again. I don't know if this is just a stage or if she is tired because at her new school she just has one nap where she is used to a morning and afternoon nap or what but I hope it ends soon. It makes my nights very long and frustrating. So mean Ansleigh I hope you are gone for good! Pray for us!

What A Weekend!!

Well Ansleigh and I had a great weekend together. Friday night after work and me picking her up from her new big girl school as we call it we got home to my parents house who we were house sitting/dog sitting for to Dede the dog covered in mud!! She has crawled under the deck and she is normally a khaki dog and was literally black it was awful. Well Ansleigh and I were chasing her around the house trying to get her in the bathtub I was crying I was laughing so hard at Ansleigh she was screaming at dede chasing her everywhere. She still cant talk that well so it was to funny.  She was saying "DEDE MERE" and pointing her finger at her with one hand on her hip. I wish I had a video of this priceless moment but we were a little preoccupied.

This is before the game

Well Saturday was very eventful as well we went to my little brothers baseball game or as Ansleigh calls him RURU'S GAME. It had rained for two days on and off so everything was muddy well little Ansleigh found every mud hole and puddle and she was covered my the end of the game.  Well some of the parents thought it was a good idea to add to the mess and give her a chocolate cupcake as well she we left the ball park with no shirt on and missing one pig tail. 

This is after the game notice no shirt!

We left the ball park and went straight to moms and scrubbed in the tub then Ansleigh crashed out for a nap and when she woke up we went to Longhorn with mom our favorite restaurant as every one says.  Then after dinner we headed to meet Bebe and Pops who had just gotten in from Florida for our favorite ice cream Sweet Cece's.  Great weekend!

These are me and Ansleigh waiting on her dad to meet us he had a flat tire and so we had quite the wait!

Yesterday Ansleigh went to her dads and we cleaned out my basement from the flooding and then I went to work the GAC telethon at the Nashville Convention Center. We were so busy with calls and I got to see lots of country singers such a fun time and for a great cause! They raised 1.7 million dollars for flood relief.  It was so cool to answer the phones and not one person was from Nashville or even Tennessee who were donating and they were all so nice and gave many encouraging words. Well back to another work week!  Happy Monday everyone! This is where I got my Flood Shirt I am wearing Above

~Friday Find~

If anyone lives in the franklin or belle meade area or anywhere close to them you need to check out sweet cece's its a yogurt shop and they have several different kinds of yogurt with every topping you can imagine! You pay based on how much your cup weighs and it is the cutest lil shop! Ansleigh and I love this place we always share and she ends up eating more than half of the cup which helps me since I am on weight watchers and dont need to be eating it to begin with! I have lost ten pounds though pretty excited! also check out weight watchers website this is how I am loosing my weight and right now you can join for free!!!
