Silly Little Games

I don't approve of it, but my son is addicted to all sorts of video games. Sometimes he's too wrapped up in the current game he's playing to even notice that I just got home from work! He plays DS games the most, considering it's easy to carry around with him, but lately he's been playing more and more ps3 games. We even had to limit the amount of time he can play on it and make sure that he plays less and less of Call of Duty. Did it work? No. He's still hopelessly addicted. I need to find something more productive for him to do!


It's the first day of summer and guess what! I'm already thinking about the next major holiday in the fall I enjoy so much. HALLOWEEN!!! I can't wait to do trick-or-treating with my kids. They collect the chocolates, I eat them! I always look for the gourmet halloween chocolate in their basket and I don't see them often. But when I do, you better believe my kids won't even find out :-). They collected a lot last year. I hope they do the same this year. Can't wait!!!


It's been two weeks since hubs and I got back from Vegas but I'm still on a high. It's our first vacation without the kids in more than 9 years and we enjoyed every minute of it. It was also our first time in Vegas and it didn't disappoint. We watched two different shows- Barry Manilow and KA by Cirque du Soleil, we visited different casinos, we walked the strip and spent a day at the Grand Canyon (a totally different experience).

The city doesn't sleep. And neither did we. Our hotel has a wedding chapel on the ground floor, it has a beauty salon, and a bridal store that sells bridal lingerie among other things.

We had so much fun that we were already planning our next trip before we even got back home.

No more dilly-dally!

Last year for Christmas, I bought hubs a titanium Eco watch from Citizen and he loved it. It was a last minute gift idea and I wish I had more time because I had wanted to check out curtis and co watches. I know I could've found something better at probably a better price. But oh well, I'm a day late and a dollar short. Lesson learned. I hope I don't end up in the same predicament as I did last year. I promise to be an early bird and do my Christmas shopping early. Wish me luck!!!
