Honesty is the best policy:::

I'm just gonna say it::

I'm a loser blogger. I'll never be one of those bloggers who people advertise with or with high volume of traffic a month, and I'm okay with it really. It would be super cool, but at this stage in my life it's just not possible.

This brings to me 2 things::

#1. Those of you who do the previously mentioned are my idols. I don't know how you keep so on top of it all, and you guys with kids...astounding!! I'd love to blog about all the things we do, but there just aren't enough hours in my day.

#2. I appreciate those who do stop by and even comment. You guys rock and its so nice to hear from you:) I love making new friends.

For a little while my posts are going to be quick and dirty of you will. If you stick by me I'll get back to normal eventually, you know...with "deep meaning" and pictures. Lol.

So here are some highlights:: (just imagine them being their own posts with fun

--That Super Bowl commercial for with Bar and the "geek" pissed me off. I've never raced to find my remote faster in my life because I needed to change the channel to protect my kids. The long close up and all those sounds?? Unnecessary!!! Bad form CBS, bad form. And to think you rejected two even before that.

--Richie had his first close up in primary today. He marched up front and recited the second article of faith. "We believe that men will be punished for their own sins, and not for Adams transgressions." Well he sung it actually, but it was amazing all the same. We were so proud:)

--Lincoln was A M A Z I N G!! I've never gushed about Spielberg, but after seeing this film I now get it and if Daniel Day-Lewis doesn't win the Oscar....oi vey

--Royal and I are going to Manhattan. We are taking some time to ourselves and the kids will be safely looked after. Some things I'm super excited for...The Royal Swedish Philharmonic, Chinatown dumpling tour, and the 9/11 memorial. There is much more on the list and I can't wait. This is my first time to the city that never sleeps and I'm beyond thrilled to get the chance to go and wander the city with my best friend:)

  1. I really want to see Lincoln but I'm afraid it's going to be too sad and depressing. What did you think?!!?

    1. It focuses mainly on January 1865 and the conflicts, both internal and external, that Lincoln had to navigate through in passing the 13th amendment as well as ending the civil war. It's not really as heavy as all that, but it was good smart film my opinion.

  2. Love your blog! Maybe we could follow each other on bloglovin or GFC? Please leave me a comment or follow me and I will follow you =)

  3. so so cute about your son in primary. i teach the 10 & 11 year olds and i'm working with them to pass them off, but i'm always so impressed by the littles who get up. they are the sweetest.

  4. I feel the same way about my blog. But you definitely have me beat when it comes to posting! I agree on the GoDaddy commercial. distasteful! Have fun in Manhattan
