Today was pretty swell. I could not have asked for better weather. Slightly overcast, cool at about 70 degrees... perfect! I just love not having to have the AC on, having the windows open and being able to enjoy the outside. I was pretty lazy this morning but finally got my house picked up and laundry started. Baily's friend Amber came over to play for a while so that was fun for her. A little exhausting for me though. Later on after we walked Amber home Patty came over and helped me weed the yard, trim it up and take back the crazy monster and turn it into a nice tree/bush. It was sooo overgrown and looks so much nicer. I'm finding that I love yardwork and I love that I have Patty right across the street and always willing to help me out with my yard and teach me what I know nothing about about trees and flowers and all that kind of yard stuff. After she was home it was the dinner rush. Why do I feel like my days are ruled by dinner time? It creeps up on me and is so much work. The prepping, cooking, fighting with my kids to eat, cleaning. Oy. After that we just chillaxed, I got J to sleep and me and Baily watched tv. Here's a pic of her with a sweatshirt on and a warm blanket because she got cold. Cold!! On June 20th!! I LOVE it!! Anyway, we watched this new show called Battle of the Superstars or something and I LOVE it. It's teams made up of a celebrity and a pro athlete doing different physical challenges. LOVE it! Baily loved it too and kept saying how she can't wait to do that stuff when she grows up. My favorite team is Julio Iglasias Jr. (I tend to lean toward the Latinos;) and Brandi Chastain, an amazing soccer player (go figure). After B went to sleep it's been computer time. I really should finish cleaning up my kitchen and doing laundry but I REALLY don't feel like doing it. My man just got home and I would really rather chill and watch tv with him. It's the last day of the first half of the year so I'm really going to try to make this 2nd half even better and work on becoming a better me... goals and all! So here's to a happy new 2nd half of the year!!
I'm still working on updating. I'm having difficulty getting some pictures from my dad's computer onto mine and I can't tell you how frustrating that is for me. I feel like I can't update my blog without being able to add those pictures and it's driving me batty. But I guess I'll just have to suck it up and do without until I can get it figured out. I really want to get back to my daily posts so here's some pics from last week and until I get those other pics it should be the last update once I start my daily posts.
Joaquin decided this day that he did not want to eat his lunch in his highchair but that he was a big boy and needed to sit by his sister on a big person chair. She was so sweet and let him sit next to her and they shared so nicely... which doesn't happen very often. Too cute!
This is Baily playing on the computer on nickjr.com. She loves it and she's so dang smart!
Robert finally got his basketball hoop in his driveway. Wahoo! Now if only we had more people to play with.
Here are my kids enjoying a true Mid-west Wisconsin snack- summer sausage and cheese. And it was extra sharp cheddar- yum-o!
My kids love playtime with daddy as you can see. I'm so grateful to have such an awesome dad for my babies!

Our past couple of months with the Dominguez household have been busy ones and due to that and lack of a computer or internet for a while is the reason for my lack of bloggingdom. So in true Sarah fashion I'm back with a lot of pictures to update and will probably be continuing to do so for a few days at least. And then hopefully I'll be back to blogging in my full time glory once again. I've missed it. Since my last post we've moved into our new home that we are renting from my dad and step-mom (whom we had been living with for the past 7 or 8 months) until hopefully we can buy soon. We are so happy to be in our house (mostly Baily) and finally feel settled after all the unpacking and moving. I'll be posting random pictures and thoughts on this post so if it's a little chaotic- sorry. That's just how I roll;)
At work we do a lot of weddings and big fancy functions and this was one of the $300 flower arrangements I got to bring home from a wedding one night. It was gorgeous and smelled divine. I decided after that that my new favorite flower is a Christanthemum (sp?). Although my job is very physically demanding and exhausting it can be a lot of fun. It's something different every day and I get to meet lots of different people. We had a wedding in May that Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson came to and I got to clear their drinks. LOL... it was fun though and they both seemed so nice and just at beautiful as they are on tv. I'm grateful for my job.
I finally learned how to make black beans for Robert like his mom makes and I didn't think Joaquin would like them but as you can see, clearly I was wrong. Pretty much every meal looks like this- Joaquin is one sloppy eater. Patty mentioned that he must be part dog (he eats dog food, is always rolling on the floor, licking things, panting) and I couldn't agree with her more.
Stay tuned for more...
