Viernes, Sabado, Domingo, Lunes

Or, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday.  I am on an Espanol roll…

How was your weekend?  Mine was fantabulous!  I didn’t accomplish everything I wanted to this weekend, but I did get a lot done (see Friday’s post for accomplishments) and was able to get in some relaxation with Smoochy and Lovegirl.  About as awesome a weekend as I could’ve hoped for.  And the weather!  I feel like my Grandma, always getting excited about good weather, but we really did have beautiful weather.  Lovegirl and I spent a good bit of time Monday at the park, gazing at the clear sky and playing the cloud game.  She cheated and kept “taking” all the good clouds!

A few Monday randoms:

*One of my dreadlocks is very thin in the middle and about to break.  This freaks me out even though I have a head full of hair and no one – including me – will be able to tell when it breaks.  I had one break last week while I was retwisting and about died!  Am making a concerted effort to do a better job of moisturizing.

*My kid got an MP3 player from my parents for her birthday.  Riding to school this morning, I got a glimpse of her at 16.  “Mom, please.  Can you wait just a minute to talk – my favorite song is on.”  Alrighty then!  I should know not to come between any child of mine and her music.  She had her serious, music-listening face on…

That's my girl!

That's my girl!

*I won!  Brown Girl Gumbo did a give-away for Queen Latifah’s new perfume and yours truly gets to check it out for nada, nathan, nil.  Love it!

That’s all!  Hope you have a great Tuesday!

Feliz Cumpleanos Mija!

Happy 5th Birthday to my favorite girl! I can hardly believe that 5 years ago today you were a bright-eyed newborn babe. Time has flown by and today you are five whole years old! Truly you are a blessing for whom I am eternally grateful. Out of all the parents in the world, your father and I are tickled that you chose us. Happy, Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!

A few of my favorite pics from our first 5 years together…

I know there is quite a gap in these pictures – between computers crashing and losing cameras, my picture game has fallen off severely!  Working on getting it together….
