Happy Birthday Bunny Girl!  Posted by Picasa

Marthas Back!

Haven't had time much lately to be my usual Martha self. However, over break, I have had some time to tackle projects Martha style. First there was the family party for Miranda and the fabulous Bunny cake I made. Then, I harvested bulbs, chives, a bleeding heart bush, and flocks from my mom's house ( ok , she dug most of them up) and replanted them here. Martha would say the best way to garden! I "tagged saled" at Salvation Army and got a ton of really nice clothes for the girls, cleaned their closets and get them ready for warm weather. I also organized Peeps room. No easy task, as she is a pack rat!

Breath in. Do you sense the return of order and neatness?

I had a moment

As I was frantically trying to keep up with my " I work full time, am taking a class, have three kids" life, I had a moment today. I took the baby for her shots today ( oops, I was a couple months late. Bad mom), I went to get into the car and thought I had the wrong car. There were three car seats accross the back. Surely this was not my car. Three kids? Are you freaking kidding me? I have three kids??? WHAT AM I THINKING?

Had to stop on the way home and go shoe shopping to bring myself back.

Life is a Cabaret

I went to my school last night to see our students in their yearly Cabaret. Let me first say that it was really good. I was impressed with the many numbers stage band did, as they accompanied the enitre thing. Costuming was good, and the dance moves were surprisingly alright. As I sat there and watched, however, I was transported back to my days in high school performing arts. I sat there realizing how much I miss music and theatre being a part of my life.
I came very close to being the play director this spring, as my school didn't have one. I have kicked around the idea of doing it next year and the idea both excites me, and scares me just a little. It's been a loooong time since I built a set, and outside of lighting for television ( college), I have not lit a stage for a play. I really think I could do it, and I know I would love to do it. Who knows, maybe next year will be my return to drama. The play is the thing!

I purchased the new Jergins Natural Glow lotion. I have been intrigued that for 6 bucks you can moisturize your skin and look tan at the same time. As the original "whiter than white" girl, this seemed like a dream come true. I want to look tan, and I have gone tanning before to do so, but the whole cooking your skin part scares me. Not to leave out the fact that the more sun I get, the more freckles I get.
I am on my third day of this lotion and as the package says, I am starting to get that "sun kissed" look. I would actually say that I look a smidge darker. I look like I have been at the pool all day. The lotion has a nice, kind of tropical smell. If you have ever gone tanning and used the creams there, it smells like that, so I am tricking myself into believing that I have gone tanning. I am wearing a white jacket tomorrow and I just put it on to see how it looks. I do really look a little tan and the white off sets it nice.
So I will continue with my experiment. I am supposed to reach optimal color after using the product for 7 days. If it keeps going as planned, this is the last lotion I ever use. It was inexpensive, and as a bonus, it has a little shimmer in it. I like shimmer. Shimmer is fun, and very girly. Girly is good.

Poetry in Motion

Miranda wrote this Cinquin for her poetry unit. It's beautiful and graceful, just like her:

falling beautiful
6 sided
none are the same
falling on your tongue

I can just see her sticking out her tongue to catch them.
