Only in Washington...

*This photo was taking today in Seabeck, Washington*

Only in Washington you get nothing but spring weather in February/March. Only in Washington you were thinking how on Saturday it was 60 degrees out beautiful and sunny. Only in Washington your boyfriend gets a sun burn yesterday on the golf course. Then the very next day it SNOWS and then for your hour lunch break the sun comes out and its looking like spring again, only to get a afternoon of more SNOW!!! Only in Washington...

I am taking yet another break from my blog, at least for this week. I am keeping all my writing time for journal and writing a disposition for my attorney (whom I meet this Wednesday) eek. Wow, who knew it would take this much work to write about this crazy roller coaster I have been dealing with the past 6 months? What a drag! It will be well worth the time and effort I put in to this in the end. Maybe one of these days in the future I will post all of my journal and possibly make it into a story...With much happy endings I can only hope for at this moment. *fingers crossed*
My story and journey is long, emotional and exhausting, but it has proved to me how strong I really can be.
Today both my babies are sick with the tummy buggy.*sad tears*
I would give anything to be home taking care of them and giving them all the mommy TLC they need and more. It has to be one of the hardest things to deal with or just one more to add to my list of hard times. I have expressed my passion to be home more with my kids, so it is slowly in the works!
How is the weather in your neck of the woods?

Flowers for me?

I have been going through hard times lately...

No worries I won't go into detail about it just yet, that story or should I say novel will be for another day and another time, trust me.
Its people like Tim in my life that can bring my smile out. I was having a very rough, emotional day on Wednesday and much to my surprise Timothy met me after work. When I arrived to our meeting spot he had the biggest smile on his face, he told me he had butterflies *blush*. When I got in the car he greeted me with a bouquet of my favorite flowers. He took me to one of my favorite restaurants, Harbor Monsoon. We sipped on hot tea, talked and had my favorite Honey Walnut Prawns along with fried rice, and steamed veggies yum!

It was just what I needed after the day I had, Beautiful flowers,yummy food, and a handsome smile.

Party planning!

Party Planning is my favorite...
Last month I put on a big birthday bash for my Mumsy's 53rd birthday. It was just spactacular to do for her since she had not had a birthday party since she was a little girl. It was a Rock Band partay! We mingled, ate a yummy variety of foods, played ROCK BAND, games, took tons of pictures and devoured my homemade cheese cake. I gave my mumsy a new much needed camera for her birthday. My mumsy use to be into photography when I was a little girl. She took classes at the Community College in Bremerton when I was 3 years old. I was her model for her photos and her art work. She always called me her ham, cause I loved the camera. I couldn’t afford to get her a fancy dancy camera like the one she had back in the 80’s, but this one will do for now while she enjoys her many travels and adventures.
A quote from the party girl: "Thanks again for having it. Lots of fun was had. Folks still talking about it."-Denise Jackson

This month I am planning three parties, two baby showers and one Sensaria party.
The first shower will be for my baby girl Dani (no she is not a baby, its just my nickname for her) her shower is this Thursday evening. Poor girl showed up a week early for her shower. Last Thursday as I am leaving the dentist with my kids, I get a text from her saying: "There isn't a table reserved and where are you?". Hahaha I had to giggle, poor sweet pregnant girl forgot when her own shower was. When I called her out on it (nicely) she responded "Oh I am so stupid" and I said "No your just pregnant". Her shower is going to be pretty low key, its pretty much co-workers here at Multicare. I will be hosting it at Moctezuma’s in Gig Harbor, which is a popular meeting place for us employee’s in the Family Practice department.

My Sensaria party is on St. Patrick’s day, I am calling it a Working Women's Wednesday partay. So you can only guess what the theme is? Yes my home is all decorated with green shamrocks, teddy bear leprechauns with their pot of gold, a fancy table cloth and I am all stocked up with festive St. Patty’s day cups and plates. The menu for the evening will be Corn beef, cabbage, red potatoes, Irish soda bread and beer, gotta have the green beer or at least some Guinness. We will enjoy all this Irish delight along with foot scrubs, facials and trying out all the spa products Sensaria has to offer. My best friend Brittany is a new consultant for Sensaria and I am hosting a party for her to help build her clientele. If you are interested in Sensaria please catch Brittany Hunter on her blog or on her Sensaria website

The second baby shower is going to be huge! This one is for my long time friend Courtney, she is expecting TWINS!!! A boy and a girl so this will be super exciting. I will be planning the games and decorations along with my long time girlfriends Charlyne and Jennifer. Here is a little story about us four friends. We all met in 2nd grade (1988) in Girl Scouts, we were cute little Brownies. I will have to post a story on that along with some awesome pictures to bring us all way back in time. I am excited and honored to be a part of this party planning.

To be continued on the out come of these upcoming parties….
