Huh? Did someone invent the time machine?

This was on the Nordstrom website. I swear
on my Mother's grave that they are selling Jelly Shoes.
Who does not remember the blisters on your feet and the criss-cross marks you got all over the tops of your feet. And of course you know I probably had every
color known to man, even rainbow striped.


The picture says it all.

It's finally Friday!

It is Memorial Day weekend already. The kids have no school Monday, which they are actually bummed about. They will learn as they get older and understand the social value of an extra vacation day from school!
We have big plans this weekend. Another Pirate Party! Should be fun! Over to Theresa and Alan's for dinner and a movie and then we are off to the Puget Park drive in theater to watch the third installment of Johnny Depp with massive eyeliner (otherwise known as Pirates of the Carribbean 3). Then back to Theresa and Alan's to whoop it up. Rosie, don't forget your spy cam! Old Ghetto phone # 2. And no Debbie Downer. This is not the anti-Thanksgiving.
Molly is going for her first sleepover at a friends from school. She is super excited. Hayley is having a friend over next weekend, so she has a chance to go stay with Grandma and Great Grandma this Saturday night. She will be in her prime hanging with the Grandma's.
Last night was Portfolio night for 1st and 2nd grade. Hayley and her class sang and then we got to go to the classroom to see work they have done throughout the year. I had so much fun volunteering the other day and already had a sneak peek at what some of the other kids had worked on, but the improvement in Hayley is so great! We are super proud parents.
I have also bit off a couple of big projects at the Elementary school, but I think it is really going to be fun! I am going to take charge of the Box tops for Education for the next year and see if I can't help breathe some new life into it...and raise some money for the school too.
My other big project is taking over the yearbook, along with another Kindergarten Mom. I think between the two of us we can make an awesome yearbook for the kids...we are both huge scrapbookers! I am excited for next year. I have never in my life met so many fun and friendly parents than at this school.
Camping season is upon us too! Our Birch Bay waterslide/camping trip is booked and our group is going to have a blast. This year we are actually staying at the Birch Bay State Park instead of the place we stayed last year. Plus we have added two more victims to our campout. Oh, did that slip out? I mean friends! Good luck with this group Stephanie and Becky.

Mark and I can't wait for the waterslides. We never miss a year. You can look them up online at www.birchbaywaterslides.net

Have a great Memorial Day weekend, Mark and I hope you have lots of fun. Or else you'll walk the plank!

Icey-if you read this wish you were here to party Pirate style while your other half is gone to Europe.

Stuck in my head

You know those days when you get a song stuck in your head. It is like you are in your own little world, standing at the fax machine or something getting your groove on. Let me just say that almost 24 hours a day my own personal soundtrack is the theme song from Sanford and Son. Luckily for me and my sanity, today I have a new love! It is the song "Glamorous" by Fergie. I love, love, love it. Have a listen on this site, or your own personal favorite site to download songs from.

Words of Wisdom from a 6 year old

Today Molly brought me a card from the other child I was in charge of on the field trip. Marco is his name and he made me the cutest thank you card with fish and starfish and seaweed drawn on the front. Marco struggles a little with his writing skills so when I opened up the card it was a little hard to read. Molly told me what it said and then in her little smarty voice she said "Mom everyone tries their best!" It was so stinkin' cute and I had to smile.

Arrr me hardy!

For those of you who don't know I am a super huge fan of the CW show Veronica Mars.

If you have not watched it, you must...it is better than Felicity (or at least pretty close). So now you know that by me totally loving this show, well the announcement is that it has been canceled after three seasons.

It is available on DVD, the best buy seems to be www.target.com

And here is a funny ad for a Veronica Mars website.
Enjoy -you pirate lovers!!!!!!!!!

This one's for Mark

So it has been a while since I have visited this blog
but I had a good laugh when reading his list of things he knows at age 30. It is a must read, especially #29. If you are at a party and feel like dancing, you really can't go wrong with "the Robot." If that fails, there's always "The Cabbage Patch." That ought to do it.
I instantly thought of my dear hubby when reading this!

Little things to enjoy

This has been a long, strange week and I think we all could use some cheer. Here are a few of my latest loves:
1. Some super cool stuff here by that woman we all love to hate! I especially love the number stamps, glitter, and the albums. Reasonably priced for all you scrapbookers.

2. Blake, Blake, Blake...and Simon said that Seattle sucked for Idol contestants. Who's laughing now baby! Way to go Bothell boy.

3. Low tide at the Edmonds beach. Weds. was Molly's field trip to the beach, we saw a ton of Starfish and Sea Anemones. It was cold and wet, but the kids had a great time.

4. Old episodes of Arrested Development. We only own season 1, but I would love to have the other seasons. This is the strangest, funniest show.

5. My friend Rose whom you can visit at www.ribbonsandbuttons.blogspot.com. She has searched out some of the best SNL skits.

6. Friendly neighbors-we have some of the nicest neighbors...even the one's with that nasty smoking habit. I am willing to overlook it, if they continue to be friendly ha ha.

7. The perfect lemon drop made with Meyers lemon mix from www.williams-sonoma.com.
This is the best place on earth...my next purchase will be the cupcake pan that makes your cupcakes look like ice cream cones. That will be a little ways off...but it is one of my favorite things they sell. Makes me feel fancy in the kitchen!

8. Last, and certainly not least, a husband who totally shares my sense of humor. Mark and I have totally been on the same page lately as far as things that make us laugh. Dorky cliche, but laughter is the best medicine.

It's official!

Hey everyone, I'm back! We are finally moved and most everything is put away. Most importantly my scrapbook room is taking shape. I am anxious to print pictures from Molly's 6th birthday and Poker night @ Theresa and Alan's. We had so much fun...Mark wasn't worth a darn the next day. T-can't wait for the next pirate party. Looks like Mark and I will have to purchase better costumes this time.
Spent some time watching dancing with the stars tonite. This is the first time ever that I have voted for dancers on that show...but it must be done. I would love to see Joey and Kym win this year. Although Apolo and Julianne would be ok too.

As I am getting more organized I will be blogging more again.

By the way Molly has a piece of artwork to be featured in the Edmonds art Festival. More details on that later. We are proud parents!!!! Way to go Molly.
