Not Me...

A few things i DID NOT do this week:
i did NOT hurt my stupid knee running with my hubby...
because i'm getting older.

i did NOT feed my  kids mac and cheese 
{with peas} for dinner one night.

i did NOT get to dance at our friends wedding
with my hubby...and DD1 stole a pic.

i did NOT steal a piece of candy from my kids stash every day at nap time.  { i wonder why i can't lose that baby weight?}

i did NOT get a free tall Espresso Truffle from Starbucks new lineup. {woot woot}

i did NOT get really really sad when i found out hubby got to go to France and I didn't.

i did NOT give my girls lemonade {pink, of course} for a breakfast beverage because we didn't have any juice or milk in the house.

i did NOT almost cry when hubby left for the airport because i will NOT miss him terribly...and it is NOT a really busy week...and 2 of the kids are def NOT sick.

MckMomma usually does Not Me Monday...come on and just join in on your own; all the cool kids are doing it!!!

adoption insight for the day...

i mentioned a few days ago that "being different" is not really a good thing to a kid, so talking about how special they are becuase they are adopted isn't the best idea.

i found this article talking about all those same types of things and how to handle the questions peeps ask...good and bad...and how to prepare you child for them.

it's been my experience that my kids will react the way i react to peeps, so if i half blow them off and move on, they do as well.  so...read up!

the Halloween candy is doing me in too! hope your kids feel better soon so it isn't so tough on you while he's away

I DID NOT throw away ALL of the Halloween candy as a punishment for no listeing ears because my turkey bird Ryder was trying to scale our counters to get it. I also DID NOT secretly feel relieved once it was gone because I am powerless over those cute little Snickers bars. Oooh confession makes a girl feel better...oh but remember I DID NOT do these above mentioned things. :o)

Kel said...

I'm sorry you're sad the hubby left - I know that's hard...just grab a piece of chocolate to hold you over till he gets back - always makes me feel better.

Hey!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today...I love meeting new people!

I really enjoyed reading your post about things you 'did not' do...very cute! Sweet photo of you and your hubby!

Have a great rest of the day...please stop by anytime! :)

Pink Lemonde is so ok for breakfast. :o)

Junita said...

Lemons count as fruit - so I think lemonade is a fruit juice of sorts!

kay said...

Your girls are just gorgeous!

And Espresso Truffle, yum!

Staci said...

Oops...is it bad to serve mac and cheese as an entree? I also did not over do on the exercise yesterday and walk 5 miles out of the blue. It did not take my internal organs about 20 minutes to catch up!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I noticed you are from Indiana. My parents were born and raised in Southern Indiana and I was born there...it's always been home since I grew up as a navy brat.

Carrie said...

Why on earth do you still have Halloween candy around at your house? All of ours was gone on November 2nd. My daughter *munch munch* is such a little *munch munch* pig! " )

Carrie said...

Love the Not Me Monday list for this week. I would totally be bummed if my hubby got to go to France without me! Yikes it is my favorite place!

First of all, espresso truffle? I'm so there. I'm hitting a Starbucks tomorrow.
Next, thanks so much for the adoption link. I have adopted twins, and a fost/adopt 2 yo. Living in a small town, everyone knows they are adopted and they feel they are theirs, but when we travel I often get a few comments. It's nice to have a reference point.
Finally, I DID NOT serve corndogs and tater tots to my family for dinner!

Just Call Me Sleep Deprived said...

luckily my daughter only stayed awake for 3 houses on Halloween so I was limited to smarties, a hershey bar and some lollipops for candy, but that new Starbucks drink sounds fantastic :)

Just Call Me Sleep Deprived said...

found you via SITS by the way

Michelle said...

Great Not Me's! By the way.....I would never feed my kids mac-n-cheese and peas for dinner!!! Who does that?? :)

Tabitha Blue said...
