Speed Demon

First off, be looking for some FABULOUS things from Scrapbookgraphics for the month of August! It's our 7 year birthday celebration, and it's gonna be a GREAT party :) First off, you can click HERE to go and see us on Facebook and like us :) I guess we got a new Facebook page, so if you already liked us somewhere else, you'll need to like us here now :P

And, since you're in the "liking" mood, you can find my fan page HERE on Facebook. You wanna like me too, right?

Howdy, all! Hope your day went well. Mine was good, with a few rough patches. Well, not rough rough, but rough. If that makes any sense. hehehe.

Got up at around 7:30/8am, got food for the kids, for myself, and did a few chores. Captain America and I had some chats about how to get and keep the house a bit cleaner, and I did a few more chores around the house. It was getting kinda messy.

At 10am, I made banana bread with all the left over rotten bananas. And it wasn't quite ready when we left for free lunch at 11am. I asked either Jake or Tom to volunteer to stay home to watch it, and take it out when the timer went off. Tom volunteered. I fixed him a lunch of hot dogs, yogurt, and pringles sticks. He seemed pretty happy about it.

We headed to free lunch around 11am. It was Mac N Cheese day. BUT, the veggie was peas, so the mac and cheese tasted like peas. Mac N Peas it should have been called. Well, ok, I didn't taste it, but that's the feedback I was getting from the kids...

Here's Jimmy with a milk mustache (or would that be goatee)

Joe hiding from my camera. I tricked him and took this shot of him from UNDER the table. Ha!
Eme, Lily, and Maddie
Me. Yeah, I think tomorrow is gonna be shower day. I REALLY need one - hehe
So they ate, then we all came back home. Captain America was there for lunch, and we hung with him till around 1:45pm. Maddie put Lily down for a nap, the other kids were occupied with electronical something or anothers, so we left Jake in charge, and headed out to shop. Maddie wanted to look for a bathroom set at Fallas Paredes. Because they have SUCH cheap prices.

We took Captain America's little car cause it has good A/C, and he took his truck to work. So as I'm getting ready to leave post, a Policeman (MP) pulls me over. Nice. Yup, I was slightly speeding. But I was totally coming to a stop, because there was a stop sign RIGHT in front of me. Sigh.

Here's me, not too happy to be getting pulled over. Cause I don't speed on post. My truck is slower than dirt. Really. I got 5 under constantly. Ask my sister. Had I not been driving Captain America's car, it wouldn't have happened.

So the dude pulls me over, and I give him my ID, license, registration, and insurance, and he goes and sits in his police car FOR-EVER! Seriously, what was he doing back there. SO not cool. At least we had A/C, or I would have been ticked even more.

Yeah, I totally got a ticket. $115 for going 8 miles over the speed limit. Sigh. I guess my "flirt yourself out of tickets" skills don't work on pudgy, lispy MP's..... grrrrr.

It started to put a damper on my trip, but I decided to not let it get me down. We continued on with our trip. Fallas had a TON of great things. Maddie found rugs for her new house which were AWESOME.

I got a few new shirts, and a bathroom rug set, and a bath mat. I was pretty happy with my finds. Oh yeah, and a cool bathroom accessory that I'm gonna turn into a ring holder. I'll take a pic tomorrow for ya. It's pretty cool, I think :)

After Fallas, we headed to Goodwill, which was on the same street. And OMGosh, they had a TON of super cute boots. I was in love. hehehe. I got a pair of tall brown and tall black boots. Maddie is gonna teach me how to wear skinny jeans with boots. Cause I'm an old fart and can't figure it out on my own. She even helped me find a pair of $3 goodwill skinny jeans. hehe.

I also found a shirt I liked there, and a pair of Steve Madden zebra high heels. I fell in love with them! They were in a dark brown and white-ish cream, and I would have liked black and white better, but it was still good.

AND I found these green sandals with a cork looking bottom and wedge, for under $4. Can't beat that.

I ended up with 2 pairs of long boots, those green sandals, the Madden shoes, and a shirt or two for $47. Not bad, when the Madden shoes should have been $70-80 alone...

We swung by the Dollar Tree real fast (it was on the same road too), then hit Circle K and Little Caesars, then came home. Lily had just woken up, and the kids were SUPEr excited for pizza.

We put our things away, ate dinner, and got ready to go to Captain Americas softball game. About 5 minutes before I was ready to walk out of the house, Captain America called and said that the other team bailed, so they were gonna just scrimmage, then come home. Easier for us :)

Here's me in my new shirt from Fallas. It's cool cause it has a hood. And hoods are cool, you know..

I was gonna hook up the slip n slide for the kids, but I couldn't find it. hmmm. I wonder if it got thrown away on our last "cleaning project" day...

Here's the little girls playing in the backyard

We cleaned up inside the house, and did some more chores. I even moved the living room furniture to get the stuff out of there. We found a TON of stuff hiding under the couches...

Captain America came home and helped us clean for a bit, then we had Family Home Evening. We finished folding laundry and putting it away, then the kids all went to bed. It's now 11:32pm, and I still need to design something. At least I'm done blogging, right? hehe.

I got my first ever speeding ticket @ Bliss too... It was in a construction zone, first time I'd ever taken that street (at night) and the sign to tell me the limit had dropped wasn't reflective! 35 in a 20! Yicks! Cost me $350 dollars... I cried and told the MP that I had never driven that street before that I was being forced to move back to SA because my husband was stationed there and his Unit was paying him (which was true) and that I was having a rough night. He told me he would have let me off, but they had just enforced a 0 tolerance policy and he had no choice! :( Oh well... Live and learn!

8 miles over??? Cop must have been having a slow day. Grrr.

Thanks for the freebie!

Chris said...

OH NO a Speeding Ticket!
That's just Not Fair!
My other half had to get a speed camera detector for the Car as He was down to the last few points on his license and He needs It for work! Yhe Word Art is also appropriate to my dubious past ;)!!
