Aloha Friday! - Vacation Time

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.


Where was the last place that you vacationed at, with or without the kids?

I am so excited because on Monday the Hubs and I depart for a week long semi vacation without the kids! Every year my husbands company requires that he and his wife go to the annual Asst Managers meeting. Each year it is in a different city and the pay for the hotel, airfare, entertainment - the works! This year it is in San Francisco. Last year we had to bring Emilio with us because he was only two weeks old but this year he is old enough to stay home. I am so excited to have some quality time with my Hubs, sans kids. We do have to go to a couple of two hour meetings for week but who cares? The rest is a blast! So, my question is where was the last place that you vacationed at, with or without your kids?

Wordless Wednesday- Labeling

12:15 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

Oscar was practicing writing his name the other day. His handwriting needs some work so I encourage him to write often. A little while later I was cleaning off the table and noticed that a certain someone decided to label his chair so that every passer by would know exactly who is supposed to sit there. I couldn't help but take a picture - before I wiped it off and told him to please not label the furniture. At least his handwriting has improved!

Help a Deserving Child with The Fresh Air Fund

3:22 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

I recently learned about a fantastic non profit organization called The Fresh Air Fund. Below is a wonderful video that shares the pleasure of becoming a host family. Host families are still needed for this August! To learn more about the organization I copied some of the key points from the site, below the video. For more info please visit The Fresh Air Fund.

Summer is quickly coming to an end so please spread the word!




THE FRESH AIR FUND, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Nearly 10,000 New York City children enjoy free Fresh Air Fund programs annually. In 2008, close to 5,000 children visited volunteer host families in suburbs and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada. 3,000 children also attended five Fresh Air camps on a 2,300-acre site in Fishkill, New York. The Fund’s year-round camping program serves an additional 2,000 young people each year.


Fresh Air Fund History

In 1877, the Reverend Willard Parsons, minister of a small rural parish in Sherman, Pennsylvania, asked members of his congregation to provide country vacations as volunteer host families for children from New York City tenements. This was the beginning of The Fresh Air Fund tradition of caring for NYC’s neediest children. The simplicity of our program is its strength. Looking back to 1877, we can reflect on how much has changed, and how much has stayed the same. In 2008, close to 10,000 New York City children experienced the joys of summertime in Friendly Towns and at five Fund camps in upstate New York.


Host a Child

Thanks to host families who open up their homes for up to two weeks each summer, children growing up in New York City’s toughest neighborhoods have experienced the joys of Fresh Air vacations. More than 65% of all children are reinvited to stay with their host family, year after year.Fresh Air Fund Host FamiliesThere is no such thing as a "typical" host family. If you have room in your home - and your heart - to host a child, you could be one too.

Learn More
Fresh Air Fund Children
Fresh Air children are boys and girls, six to 12 years old, who reside in low-income communities in New York City and are eager to experience the simple pleasures of life outside the city.As one child says, "I can’t wait to get on the bus every summer so I can see my family and go swimming and hiking!"


Donate

You can give a child the experience of alifetime with your gift to The Fresh Air Fund!Every year, The Fresh Air Fund gives thousands of inner-city children the priceless gift of fun – and opens the door to a lifetime of opportunities.Whether it's a two-week trip to visit a volunteer host family, or a fun-filled and educational stay at one of our camps, our programs make for unforgettable memories – and open a world of new friendships and fresh possibilities.We are a not-for-profit agency and depend on tax-deductible donations from people like you to keep our vital programs flourishing.

Aloha Friday - Happily Married

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.
How long have you and your significant other been together?



I decided to ask this question this week because on Monday Oscar and I celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary. Ten days before that we celebrated the anniversary of our very first date which was eleven years ago. Its hard to believe that the time has gone so fast! Three kids and a ton of ups and downs later he is still the one that I believe was made for me. I never would have guessed that he was the one for me when I met him when I was just 16. We didn't even start dating until after highschool ended when I was 18 and he was 19. We are so different but the same at all at once. We are so lucky to have found each other. So, that is why my question is, how long have you and your significant other been together?

Wordless Wedneday - Its Official

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

Its official. I can now add proud soccer mom to my mom resume. The only thing missing is the minivan with the soccer ball sticker in the rear window. Oscar absolutely loves it! Everyday he asks when he has soccer practice, he is super excited. I have to admit it is pretty fun to watch the kids playing. One of the best parts is Oscar's classmate's Dad is the coach so he let Oscar play for free. Score!

Not Me Monday

11:50 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.


It is my seventh wedding anniversary today. I am in total disbelief as to how many years have gone by, and so quickly too I might add. Its not me that once in awhile wishes that we could go back to those care free days of going out on a whim, not having to scramble for a sitter. I would also never anger my husband on the eve of our anniversary over something foolish that I did over the weekend. Nope, not me.

This particular foolish thing that I did, may not seem so foolish to other people but to my husband it was very foolish and hurtful. I would never go out to a party with friends from work and come home at two in the morning, nope not me! And while out at this party text a former coworker that my husband would wish I rather not text, nope not me. Then when I got home my hubs checked my phone and found all the texts. Now, don't get me wrong, my relationship is strictly platonic with this former coworker but nonetheless my hubs disapproves. Now, on a day that we should be celebrating, we are not speaking. I would never admit that this bothers me to no end that he feels betrayed yet I still feel that I didn't do anything really wrong, not me.

Hopefully he will get over this act of betrayal in time to celebrate the past seven years of marriage with me this evening when he gets home from work. If not at least he'll probably get over it by the eighth one right? I would never try to use my feminine wiles at an attempt to win him over and remind him why he married me in the first place, nope not me!

Wish me luck!

Aloha Friday - Mom Stuff

12:35 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.

Does your own mom do anything to annoy you when babysitting or helping you with your kids?

My parents are visiting from Arizona for an entire month. Don't get me wrong, I love them dearly, and I wouldn't let them stay anywhere else. Not to mention how I love the free babysitting and the freedom to go run an occassional errand without the kids. But I also get frequent reminders of why I wanted to move out of my parents house in the first place! I love my mom but sometimes she tries to help - too much. So much that I actually consider it anti help. She just does things the way that she was used to doing them for me when I was a kid, not how I actually do them for my own kids. She will go by her rules and not mine. Sometimes stuff she does just plain grosses me out even though I know that I lived through it and made it alive. For example, cleaning the counters and the table where we eat with the kitchen sponge. The dirty ass kitchen sponge. SO GROSS! I think that she has finally learned that is a no no in my house. So my question is, does your own mom do anything to annoy you when babysitting or helping you with your kids?

Not Me Monday!

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.


I had such a blast enjoying Emilio's first birthday party yesterday! I was so happy to see my friends and their kids. I was not super annoyed that the only day this week that is was supposed to rain was on Sunday, during the party, not me! Then I was also not super excited when it only ended up sprinkling a little bit here and there and turned out to be a great time that we could spend indoors and outdoors.

Emilio got some great gifts but I was not really weirded out when my brother in law invited some of his close friends and their kids to the party. At the very end. Then it wasn't me that pretended I loved the gift that they brought when it was really a cheap $3 toy, one that I actually had received before from a different cheap ass person at a previous party, nope, not me!

At the end of the party my friends left and we were left to get to know my brother-in-laws good friends. Turns out that they were really nice, however, just completely rude all at the same time. My mother-in-law was very upset that one of the girls packed up all of the leftover food and took it home to their family. I was not completely laughing to myself as I watched her eyes widen as this girl just helped herself to all the food and drink in the house and packed it up in her car like she just got done shopping at Costco, not me! It was also not me laughing that she and I were the only ones to notice that this was going on. Then I couldn't help but crack up as I proceeded to do the same thing with what was left! The biggest difference is that I actually bought all of the food at Costco and gave it to my in-laws to prepare, unlike random hungry girl and her hungry family!

Aloha Friday! - Pet Peeves

12:01 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.

What is one of your biggest pet peeves?

I never claim to be perfect but there are just some things that I like done a certain way. For example, I absolutely hate having to wash off crusted on food when I am doing the dishes. It makes life so much easier if you just rinse the plate off before leaving it in the sink. One of my biggest pet peeves is when my husband leaves crusted plates in the sink. So gross! It takes me that much longer to do the dishes when I have to scrub super hard at all the crusties instead of just a quick rinse and into the dishwasher it goes! This battle has been going on for years so I don't see it ending anytime soon. So that's why my question is what is one of your biggest pet peeves?

Five Thing Friday

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

Pretty Pink Momma

Its time for Five Thing Friday! This is my opportunity to share some of the bits and peices about me or anything going on in my crazy life so you can get to know me a little bit better. I would love for you to join me in the fun so I can learn more about you! Just grab the Five Thing Friday button on the right sidebar and post a comment letting me know that you are playing along and I will be sure to read your Five Things!


1. So happy that my parents are in town! They will be staying with us for the whole month. I love that I can go run errands sans children - my favorite!

2. My stab wound is healing nicely. I took the stitches out myself. Well, one popped off on its own and I cut the other two out. Now my hand is just really sore. But on the upside I don't have to wear that stupid bandaid on my hand or shower with a latex glove anymore!

3. My addiction to Cherry Coke is still strong. I need to do something soon to avoid some serious problems. I'm at the point where I actually freak out for five minutes if there isn't any in the house. Worse than crack because it is readily available at the store whenever I need a fix.

4. I have had the netflix rental sitting by my dvd player for over a month now, maybe two. It is The Changeling. Has anyone seen it? Is it worth watching or should I just send it back all ready so my hubs choice can have its turn to sit by the dvd player?

5. Emilio's first birthday party is on Sunday. I still need to buy the food, his present, card and everything else. Not to mention invites for my other son's birthday party that is in three weeks. I hope his friends can come on short notice!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

I can't believe that tomorrow my youngest baby boy will turn one year old! I would never put off getting a present or food for the party, that is coming up this weekend, to the last minute, nope not me! And I would never expect my inlaws to do all the food prep and cooking while I sit around on my lazy bum and chat it up with the party guests, aka - my bff's! Not me! Did I also mention that I would never force my inlaws to host the party either - and then laugh as I send them an invitation to a party at their house! Nope, not me!

Because of the total chaos surrounding this last week I have slacked a little in my blog posting, sad but true. I would never just enjoy the fact that my husband had Friday off and celebrate by doing housework all day - not even touching my blog - nope, not me! I was so happy to be able to get a ton of things accomplished that is usually impossible with three little ones to juggle. I would never give myself a total pat on the back for being an awesome organizer after completely cleaning out and redoing the guest bedroom, nope not me! I would never wish that I took a before and after pic though - than you could see exactly why I am so proud, not me.

The guest bedroom is my biggest accomplishment lately. I would never completely rearrange, organize, add a TV/DVD combo with cable and a mini fridge in an effort to please my parents. Nope not me, and I would never expect a huge WOW from them when they see their new diggs, not me! All this so my Dad will not have to compete with my boys for TV time when he and my mom are here visiting for a month. I would never do all this in order to make my parents feel like they are in a hotel - a hotel with loud, screaming children that is. A hotel that they wish that they could stay in but can't afford to for a whole month. I would never plan all this in anticipation of their impending arrival on Wednesday - nope, not me!

I am also now not totally overwhelmed with having to plan yet another birthday party for Oscar who will be six on August 2, nope not me! I would never ever put off sending out invites and reserving the place until the last minute, nope not me! I do think that this is something that I should probably do today, but I know that I probably won't. I am not a total procrastinator when it comes to parties, especially when it is one right after the other, not me, *sigh*.

Music Monday - Seventh Grade Flash Back

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



I remember loving this song so much in the seventh grade! It was one of the best one hit wonders to come out of 1991, I think every girl I knew had this song memorized. They should have anyway because it was on the radio nonstop! As much as I loved it I don't think that I ever saw the video - until now that is. So early nineties! But whats up with the dude humping the chair? I remember my favorite lyric was when the chick says "smooth to the groove like sandwich bread". I think that I am officially bringing that phrase back, thats how cool I am, or not, you decide....

Wordless Wednesday - From Gruesome to Gorgeous

12:39 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

I thought that I would show you all my stab wound, mostly because it dominates my life and irritates the crap out of me all day long. On the upside, doctors orders - no dishes! For those that don't know why I have a stab wound read my Not Me Monday post to get filled in.



Now for the gorgeous. My kids love walking the trails around this historic park that is close to our house. It has a salmon hatchery and huge and small water falls all around. Simply gorgeous to see in person.




For more Wordless Wednesday go visit Five Minutes for Mom or several other places I can't remember to list right now.
