Girls night Wednesday is starting to become a tradition :) hehehe. Andrea had just got back from 2 weeks in Idaho, Adela is leaving on Friday for 2 weeks in San Antonio, and Laurie was leaving in the morning for, um, somewhere, on vacation. This was THE night to have a girls night! Here we are, all posing for the picture!
Adela and her YUMMY velveta/hamburger dip - OMGosh it was good :) And yes, you did detect a hint that I cheated. It was Katy's first time seeing me eat real food, and I thought they were all gonna pass out. Katy was like, "I have a weird feeling in my heart watching you eat" ROFL! I made myself up a plate of food (chips and meat/cheese dip, chips and cream cheese, and 1 brownie) and just ate what was on the plate. Self control! Where did that come from?? But I'm glad it was there! The girls took a pic of me eating the food, and them all being uber-surprised in the background, but it's on Katy's computer.
And a few days ago, Adnrea mentioned that she needed us to teach her how to put on make-up. So, Katy and I busted out all of our make-up, and went to town. Obviously, us being white girls (and in Katy's case, EXTREMELY white girl - LOL!), foundation was out of the picture. We both took an eye, and made her look fabulous. Mine was in greens, and Katy's was in blues/grays. Gorgeous!
Then, at about 11:10, we all loaded up in Katy's van, and headed to the airport to pick up Jennica (a girl from church). She'd been in Oregon visiting her family for the week, and her ride had fallen through, so she'd asked Andrea to do it. We turned it into a fun Girls Night adventure - LOL!
When we got back, Katy was looking at my hair gel (well, glue), and tried it out. ROFL!!!
Andrea gave us the YUMMIEST smelling bath shower gel before she went home. Awe, thanks girl! Laurie had gone home about an hour before that.
So, the 3 remaining die-hard Girls Night-ers decided to do facials. Somehow we missed the pedicures. We'll have to do it again sometime soon! But, here we are with our facial peels on. TOO funny - look how sweaty we appear.
It was hard to make facial expressions when it was so stiff on your face - Katy is a riot! Look how her skin is pulling away from her face towards her finger - LOL!
My face felt like it was getting pulled off- hehe. My lips were curling up too - I just LOVE facials. Picking them is the BEST part - hehehe
I was asleep by 3am, and up again at 8:45am. Durn kids. One of these years, they'll like to sleep in too. Oh well. I was cleaning by 9am, cause the repair guys were coming in the afternoon. We cleaned the kitchen, the living room, spot mopped the kitchen, washed down the counters, did the dishes, cleaned Joe/Jim's room, and made my bed. I was gonna put away my clothes, but decided to just hide them in the closet. I know, real mature of me. Oh yea, I cleaned my bathroom too.
Katy came to pick us up at 11:10am, and we were on our way to the pool!
Here's a funny pic of Joe with the goggles on. Too funny!
So, the kids have been trying to get us Mom's to go down the water slide since we started pooling. Well, first off, I'm afraid of heights. Second off, I don't like to go underwater. It gets in my ears, and I have to plug my nose. So, slide and me, not so much. Then, the slide had been broke for 2 weeks or so. Thank goodness. Well, Monday it was open, but we'd forgotten our cameras. We weren't gonna do it if we didn't have proof - LOL! Well, today it was working, AND I had my camera, so we had to do it.
And guess what??? I LOVED it! The first time, I screamed the whole way down, then hid my face. Got water all up in my nose. I hurried back up the stairs, and did it again, this time only screaming 1/2 the time, and plugging my nose. Much better :) Aren't I silly!
And here's Katy - woohoo!!! We gave her Jake's old UnderArmor to wear as a swim shirt. She gets burnt WAY too easily, and her dermatologist recommended getting something like that. I'm just glad that we had an extra one arond that didn't currently fit anyone!
We had a TON of fun at the pool today. The little kids played in the baby pool for quite some time, and Katy and I and the bigger kids played in the big pool. We had races (well, we were trying for a little bit of exercise) going from one side of the pool to the other in crazy ways. It was fun.
Later, the little kids joined us for a while, and we played tag. That was fun. Then, all the daycare/youth center people started showing up, and it got really crowded. And it starte to smell like wet dog. Nasty. Not sure what that was all about, but it wasn't plesant. hehehe.
Here's a pic of Emeline - isn't she cute!
And me, probably the only person who goes swimming with a bandana on - LOL! Boy was it sunny - that's why I look so funny in this picture. And NO, that's not my normal face - hehehe.
So we were home from the pool by 2:30pm, and everyone was a bit tired. Jake and Tom went upstairs and played GameCube. Eme and Joe played on the laptop. I put a movie on for Jimmy in my bed. I sat down on the couch, and download my pics from girls night, and edited them. After I was all done, I went in with Jimmy, and laid down for a nap. I got about an hour or so worth of sleep. It sure felt good :)
Captain America came home at 5:30ish, and I started dinner for the kids. I had made WAY too much casserole last week, so took 1/2 and froze it. I just love foods that you can pop directly into the oven, heat, and serve. That's awesome for a day when you're tired.
At about 6:30pm-ish, Captain America and I drove over to the automotive place to pick up our truck. It was done being fixed. And the bill was $20 less than I'd anticipated! Woohoo!! It's nice to have my truck back. I sure do love that old truck :) Please don't die again!
Captain America was looking really tired, so I forced him to go to bed, turned on his favorite movie, got him all tucked in, and left for Katy's house - LOL! Gettysburg is a great movie and all, but there's only so much of that that a girl can take - ROFL! He seemed pleased that I was taking such good care of him. And he knew that he'd be asleep shortly, so he didn't seem to mind that I was ditching him - hehehe.
I got to Katy's house at 8:45pm, and Andrea and Adela showed up shortly after that. We did our nails, and watched Knowing. I should have liked it more than I did, but the weirdness of the end kinda ruined it for me. Oh well. I did like the "horrific disaster" scenes. I know - I'm so weird. hehehe.
My toe nails are a lovely shade of dark red, and my finger nails are a dark pink. I even have decals on them. I know, SO girly for me :) I don't typically like finger nail polish on my fingers (just on my toes), but I'm giving it a try. It's kinda distracting me as I type this - LOL!
It's only 12:47am, so I think, when I hit the Publish Post button, I'm gonna read for a few minutes, then go to bed at 1am. SO early for me, compared to how late I've been going to bed - who would have thought! I'm turning into such a night owl.
