Just wanted to do a quick post... Robert had to work tonight, but my sister Ginny and I took the boys to the Gautier Mardi Gras parade tonight. We had a really good time. And for a two-year old, whose Mama didn't bring any toys for him to play with (Bad Mama!), Robbie actually behaved very well. Much better, in fact, than quite a number of other kids/tweens at the parade... The only time Evan really made a fuss was when the motorcycle cops were coming through at the beginning. Then he calmed down and we all enjoyed the parade. This was both boys' first Mardi Gras parade. I think I like Mardi Gras a lot more now that I have children. They got a lot of stuffed animals, cups, beads, etc. I just ate one of the moon pies and it was pretty good! :) I am all about everybody having a good time at Mardi Gras. But now I really appreciate it when there is more of a "family friendly" atmosphere.... :) Happy Mardi Gras, y'all!!!

Oh, I Am So Bad!

Well, I thought I was going back to the track this week. Didn't happen... There's always next week, right???

However, I thought I'd take the time to share a little "funny" about my boys. Let me preface this by letting you know that they now share a room. The other room we hope to turn into a "playroom" eventually.... Well, tonight I had put Evan in his crib and was starting to read some stories to Robbie. When, lo and behold, we see Evan's foot poking through the side of the crib. (Don't worry! He didn't get stuck...) So, Robbie starts laughing. Then we see Evan's hand several times. Robbie still laughing... Finally, Evan's head pops up above the bumper pad. And it's just too cute! :) I've decided that now Evan is "Nosy Rosy" instead of "Chunky Monkey"!

For anyone who might be reading, I hope you have a great weekend!

Until next time,

Back to Work...

Well, I must admit that I was NOT successful with the exercising thing this past week. I did not go to the track even once. I feel bad about that, and I intend to at least try to do better this week.
On a happy note, Robert and I had a wonderful time at the Krewe of Vesta Mardi Gras Ball last night! We had a few drinks, stayed for the presentation of the court, said hello to Allen, then we left. Next on the agenda was our "Midnight Run" to Steak-N-Shake. We left Pascagoula at around 10:30, headed for Steak-N-Shake in Mobile. Sounds crazy, and maybe not so exciting to y'all, but we've been talking about a midnight run to Steak-N-Shake for a while. It was just the two of us, so we went. The food was good, and the shakes were delicious. Not a healthy meal choice, but hey, this was the first night it had been just the two of us in a loooonnnngggg time, so we wanted to enjoy every minute.
Robbie and Evan had a great time spending the night at "Aunt Deena"'s. She's a big part of why we were able to have such a good time last night. We knew our boys were in the best of care, so no need to worry. :)
Well, I guess it's bedtime for me. Then back to work, and back on the track tomorrow...
Anyone reading, have a great week!
