10 on Tuesday

1. We celebrated Terry's 29th birthday (again) on Friday with a night out on the town. Dinner at the Grand Luxe Cafe in the Venetian and the BLUE MAN GROUP. It rocked! We were even part of the show! Before the lady came and made my put my camera away I got 1 cool picture of the show. I did get some cool close-ups after the show of one of the guys, he even kissed my ticket for an autograph! Terry tried to snap a shot of us together but it was crazy with the amount of people in there!!


2. We left the kids to tend themselves while we went to the show. They have babysat before but never for this long or at this late at night. We made it through with only 10-12 phone calls and 30-40 text messages!

3. I never did a full tribute to Terry blog post like I intended but every one who knows us knows how much I love him and how we have "movie love" and nobody really wants to hear about (at least that is what my brothers say!! So here it is I LOVE TERRY KAY CONK AND WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW HE IS THE BEST HUSBAND/DAD IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!
There I said it!

4. Valentines was on Sunday as most of you may well know! I have never really done a whole lot for the day, probably because we never did when i was a kid, it was more just a school holiday! I want to be one of those fun mom's who make a fun day with treats and dinner. I didn't. I suck. Maybe next year!

5. I have come to the conclusion that I spend way to much time on the computer. I came to this conclusion all by my self it had nothing to do with last Thursday when my daughter screamed at me for like 20 min about how I was the worst mother in the whole world because I am always on the computer and I never listen to her. (Truthfully, I don't listen to her because if I did pay constant attention to her I would be blogging from either the mental hospital or prison!) But I do think it has become a problem, just since the first of the year when I started this whole picture a day thing. Flickr is my new addiction, I love the whole process...(to be continued in #6.) But I am going to try ti limit myself to just getting on in the evenings when things are calmed down and we are in our various activities, and maybe for a half and hour during lunch so I can check my flickr.

6. So yeah FLICKR...the process I love. I love thinking up what picture I want to take for the day, then loading up and editing on the computer. The little buzz I get when I upload it to flickr and then checking to see what everyone in my group has to say about it. I love seeing what everyone else posts and adding my 2 cents. I love the community and getting to know each and every one of these girls doing it with me and their families. It has been such a positive experience so far!!

7. Terry is addicted to his new xbox came called Civilization. That's all I have to say about that.

8. With money being more than tight right now Terry and I decided NOT to do anything for Valentines day for each other. I am the only one who stuck with that plan. Little turd. I'm not really complaining because look at what I got...

aren't they the cutest thing you have ever seen!! I can't wait to wear them! I saw these a few weeks ago when shoe shopping for the kids and I fell in love, but the practical side of me said..."Kristin, you don't need another pair of shoes, you have sufficient for your needs and you really can't afford to buy those right now!" See so if you use your better judgment and don't spend money you don't have your husband will do it for you and then when you go bankrupt it's not your fault for buying shoes frivolously!

9. I have the best husband in the world.

10. Laundry just might be the death of me! Good night!

Love the shoes! My friend has a similar pair and she calls them her "party shoes" even when she wears them to church.

Great Shoes! By the way I think if we listen to ALL our children have to say we'd never get in a word. I know My kids NEVER stop talking! Tuning out is a must to keep sanity intact!
