Weekend - Done Already?

I didn't do much this weekend but for some reason it just flew by. Saturday we got up some what early and headed over to Old Navy to take advantage of the $1 sale they were having on flip flop. By the time we got there they had no more in my size, a couple in Nay's size and a whole lot left in Niah's size. Niah ended up with 10 new pairs of flip flops. I had to go to another store and ended up with 2 and Nay ended up with 3 pairs.
After that we headed over to the pet store because Niah was promised a hamster for her birthday by her Daddy. Meet Nayah or Rabbit ( the kids call him both names). Yes the hamster is a boy but because he belongs to Niah (the queen of all things girlie) he has to live in a pink cage. Let hope he doesn't know the difference.
Then today one of our friends called to say he had another one for us so Nayshawn got a hamster too. His name is NJ.
Also wanted to say I am so proud of my younger brother. He bought his first car today. A silver Toyota Corolla. Congrats Kevin!!

I have a little winner....

My Daughter did a pageant and got 1st runner up which is really good since she had never done one before. And before anyone gets bent out of shape. She asked me if she could be in a pageant. I always wanted something like this to be her decision not mine. I didn't force her. As a former pageant queen myself, I believe there is much to be learned and many experiences to be gained from the entire pageant experience. For one it teaches social and interview skills. It also teaches how to loose gracefully. Which I am so proud of Niah, she was one of the few little girls that did not cry. She was just happy to be apart of the whole thing and it did help that she received a trophy. She also got a prize for the best smile. After receiving that she said it was the best night of her life. LOL.
Over all I am very proud of my little lady. She is truly an inspiration to me.

I survived.....

Well, I survived the first week at my new job. I am slowly getting situated and getting a feel for what I am doing. I think my brain must have been fried because on Saturday I has such a bad headache I didn't even get out of bed. The kids spend the day with my Mom. I am so happy I have her close by. I did feel better by Sunday. So Ezzy, Tasha and I went to dinner with a friend, Phil. He lives on Ft Lauderdale beach and it was so nice. It was a nice day. I took a couple of pics to share.

Look at this lobster I has for dinner. It was so good.

Here is a page I did to kinda get me back on track, scrap wise. I feel like I have not scrapped in ages. I think I am feeling it again. I must think Elsie Flannigan for the wonderful book she published because it provide the inspiration I need to get going again after that long break.

What Have I been doing???

Wow were do I begin? Well Friday marked the end of the school year for the kids. They are officially on summer break. Luck for them. Niah had an end of year program. Their theme was Disney and her class sang the Bear Necessities from the Jungle book. They were just too cute.
I have been busy and stressed for the last couple of weeks because I have been interviewing for a new job. So with the interviewing process and then the training someone to take my old position when I am gone I have been just mentally exhausted. But I am happy to say I will start my new job tomorrow morning. I am so excited. I will be moving up in my career, supervising a staff, and back in the area of accounting I love. It also doesn't hurt that I will be making way more money. I am very sad to leave my old company where I have been for 4 1/2 years but ready to move on. My co-workers took me out to happy hour to wish me off. All I can say is White Chocolate Martini.

Also Friday was Niah's 6th birthday. I have no babies any more. My old company was having a family day event yesterday at Jungle Island (which is close to South Beach) so we went and also celebrated her birthday and my cousin's birthday (which is on the 7th)at the same time. Then three of her cousins baked for her. She had two sets of cupcakes and a cake.

Today we went to Build-a-Bear.

I did not forget about my blog. I have just been busy with a few things. I promise I will share soon. Here is another picture of Nay and Niah I took the other day at the park.
