Down then Up or Sarah Begins to Level Out.

There are some challenges going on folks.

From the girls at How Much is Too Much I bring you:

Stickers. And Love to Alison,
No, it is unfortunate that we were NOT together for the taking of these pictures. I'm thinking I would be smiling in that case.

And from Jocelynne, Amber, Anja, Teri, Hanni and I, I bring you:
Fun Girl Challenge #5, which required a handprint, a staple, handwriting, tape and something striped-

A Hard Week.

Work Mess.

A Disappointment and a Loss.

And, well, what with The Flu or Some Such Nonsense, its easy to see how happy I was to have had a lovely Friday night out with this handsome dude:

to see this:
Yes, my first superman movie ever. And despite the indignation of my comic book afficionado husband at certain points, I LOVED it. I mean, yeah, we did make a couple of jokes, but doesn't that just add to the fun? It does for me!
Also did a little retail therapy- obtaining (in the quest for practical sturdy, trip-overseas shoes) a pair of blister inducing adorable chuck wannabes at Payless, and some hand cream (the kind that has french words and a number! O la!) at Bath and Body Works.

There was some KI purchases made today at Recollections, a little Target and Hobby Lobby hopping, and then, would you believe it?

I cooked dinner.

(waiting for a few of you to recover from your swoons)

Pork chops, sourdough bread, corn on the cob and stawberry shortcake! YUM.

(go ahead swoon again. I've got time.)

Tommorrow we may go watch the Rangers play, and I plan on doing just a little bit more of the recovering I've done today. Feels nice to get back to normal. The week ahead will be interesting because of the holiday, and I will have to shift my patients around, which requires alot of me, annoyingly enough. July 4th is My sister Alison's Birthday!!! She's a yankee doodle sweetheart!!

And just to round out the shmalzyness (nod to Michelle who, and I mean this with all love and respect, because I live with two people who are like this, can talk the hind leg off a mule) of this post, I'll throw in a bit of Bo and Emma speak for the heck of it.

Emma looking at a black and silver ribbon on my desk:
"Oh Mama! It's so stywish!"
Emma looking at wedding dresses with Nicole and I:
"Oh Nicole! Don't you sink this one's just darwing?"

We really are working on her speech, and it is improving.

Bo as overheard today by me:
"Emma, I do NOT want to play legos, NOR do I want to play Mother and Father."
He's very into jokes right now. We tell them how funny we think they are,
which is generally not very.
"Mama. What does a squirrel call a note book? A Nutbook, get it?"
Emma says, "BO, you are NOT funny."

Hope you guys have a great 4th too & can make it to the Rangers game. My brother will be there and I'd be there too if I could!

I still haven't done my fun girl challenge - I need to get on that!

I hope you're feeling better.

The fact that Bo uses the word nor fills me with delight!

I need to add that I'm shocked and a little bit disturbed that you've never seen pretty in pink and I really feel like you should remedy this as quickly as possible. I can't stand the thought of you missing out on this!
