Posting over 25 entries today (Back dating)

So to my followers.... I have been so extremely busy with my life that I have not had time to document. Today is a day of blogging because its Stake Conference and I don't go until 2pm. Wanted to sleep in but I woke up earlier from a dream that was actually living another day in my life and I hated the day. It was a nightmare. It shook me up for a while. But, I read my scriptures and feeling better. I thought, what a great day to update my blog and remember the fun things that have been done over the past year.

I have gone back and looked at the dates of all my pictures and will be posting all the way back to some in January 2010. Went from paper scrapbooking to electronic blogging. It is easier and quicker! LOVE BLOGGING! Love to share my life with all and glad to have the time to do this!

5th Grade; First Day!

Sydney started the 5th grade 8/23/2010! She seemed to have a great day and teachers are: Mr. Barfield (Math), Mrs. Peacock (Language Arts), and Mrs. Goracke (Science).

Her homeroom teacher is Mr. Barfield. The best thing about the whole thing is that she and Marjorie are in the same block schedule together! Finally, they are in class together! It took 4 years to happen.

Saving Meat using FoodSaver

Went to Quincy Meats and got the 5 for $19.99. Then, I had to breakdown into packages that would be best for Sydney and me to use. Here is how much meet I got for $19.99. Love going and getting meat for that kinda price! Yahoo!

Hair Cut and Pedi

Hollywood Nails and Hair Impressions were on our agenda for today! Look how cute Sydney's hair looks! Now the funny part is that it won't be curly like this until she gets it done again by Krystal. LOL. We had a fun day getting ready for school. After we left getting toes done, we went to Canopy Oaks to see who here teachers were going to be. Met her dad there so he could be involved and meet Syd's teachers also.

Piercing Ears

After 2 years of being allowed to get her ears pierced, Sydney decided that she finally wanted to get her ears pierced. So we rushed to get them done. It was a family affair. So Connie was paying since she did mine she promised (or I told her that was what she was doing for the 8th birthday just a few years later is when it happened).

Starbucks discovered

Standard Card: Mella
So, we had a swim meet on the 31st of July and one of Sydney's friends mom called me ask I was running to the store for some treats for the meet. She asked that I stop at Starbucks to get her a coffee. So, I did and while there I decided to get me something. It was a GREEN TEA LATTA... I am in love! I now am a part of the Rewards Program and I have 22 more stops to be a GOLD Card holder.
