Just another week

Not much going on this week, just another week our house! Kelsee my 5 year old will have her first official paid dance class this week! We got her outfits today for class on Tuesdays, very pretty blue leotard with attached skirt and a pink skirt to go with her pink leotard! She's also recently joined girl scouts so a lot of money is being put forth for her these days! But that's ok we just want her to enjoy life while she's young and have every opportunity she can have!

Tyler is talking more and more each day and we're working on colors lately. Today while he was going potty at poppy's (grandpas) house he was pointing out the towel and hand towel next to the toilet! Then i would say Tyler got a blue shirt and he'd repeat Ty Ty blue shirt, i love how much they absorb at this age!

My husband and i celebrated our 6 year anniversary Saturday Sept 10, i can't believe I've been married that long! :)  We took the kids to Poppy and Nana's house to stay the night and we went to dinner at Toko, which is a new Japanese Steakhouse in Fort Wayne. It was ok food but i definitely would say I'd rather go to Takioka if i'm going to to a Japanese Steakhouse! The chef wasn't as entertaining and you definitely didn't get as much food for what the prices are. The flavor was good, except the fried rice was bland without soy sauce. The lightening was better and it was a little more modernized then Takioka but overall we weren't impressed! After dinner we still had an hour until the movie we were going to watch, so my husband (Nate) decided to go to Gander Mountain and look around. Found out the Crossbow he wants to buy might be $100 less there then where he was originally looking. Then we still had time to kill, so he took me to Debrands on Auburn Road...its a cafe and they make the yummiest chocolate! We got some delicious chocolate and then went to the movie! We went to Car- Mike Cinemas on Dupont..huge Theater but the actual cinemas probably only seat about 40 people if that. We went and seen Captain America, that was a great movie! It was a long night but it was a lot of fun! We haven't been out without kids in a while and we hadn't been to a movie in the theater since our daughter was 4 months old.
Hope everyone has a great week!!!

Blog featured this week! YAY!!!

The Not-So-Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom

I am excited to be the featured blog for Mom Blog Monday with Not so Secret Confessions of a First Time Mom, Luxury Living Frugal Style and So Easy Being Green as the hosts! Thank you for letting me be the featured blog this week it is an honor!

Hope everyone had a great labor day weekend, mine was long! We went to Michigan Thursday evening which is a 4 hour trip from where we live. Then Friday at 4pm we had a wedding to attend to which was another 45 minute drive from where we were staying. We had a great time visiting with family and it was a beautiful wedding! Our daughter Kelsee especially had a lot of fun, cause she doesn't see or play with her cousins that often!
We stayed one more night at my husbands grandfathers and spent the day Saturday at his house also. The kids and I got to meet my husbands Aunt Dawn and Uncle Bob..they are from Florida! Yes...we've been married for almost 6 years (next Saturday) and this was my first time meeting them! What can ya do...we've never been at the same place yet so far! Kelsee was absolutely in love with their two dogs Oz and Lady both way bigger then our Chihuahua that we have at home!
This picture is of Aunt Dawn, Kelsee, Tyler and Uncle Bob with grandpa Price and Oz in the background!
Saturday early evening we loaded in the car again and headed for my father in laws, which is 30 minutes from grandpas house. He also has big dogs (2 labs and a standard poodle), my kids thoroughly enjoy going there because of the big dogs! Sunday we rode four wheelers but unfortunately no pictures this time. We also had a campfire in the afternoon on Sunday and cooked hot dogs and got to visit with Uncle Jason (my husbands brother), Aunt Diana, Mara and Noah for a little while. For dinner we had Pizza Hut...yum stuffed crust! :) Then we went back to my father in law's and watched Diary of  A Wimpy Kid with Kelsee and Tyler (cute movie). After the kids were both in bed and the father in law was in bed my husband and i watched Hall Pass. Interesting movie, not sure what my opinion of it is, it was funny but a little odd. I'm pretty sure my husband and I will not be doing a Hall Pass anytime soon! LOL We got home tonight just before bedtime and hurried and got the kiddo's ready for bed and put to bed!
Now i'm the only one still up and the house is completely dark! Guess i better go to bed cause tomorrow starts another day of getting up at 6:30am to get my Kindergartner ready and too school! Hope you all enjoy my blogging and continue to follow it after this week! I do awesome reviews and giveaways and i should have one coming up soon (finishing one from earlier this summer) for a bankie!
