thursday's thirteen

1.) so my life long dream is about to unfold in a couple of weeks...i'm gonna officially be a "SOCCER MOM." admittedly, i'm read to plaster the sticker on the back of my kid-loading SUV, that's how excited i am about watching the mabster play. this should be interesting. hopefully, daddy won't be screaming "kick'em in the shins, abby!!" while on the sidelines...

2.) puzzles: they own my child.

3.) RT @SarcasmSociety: "How many times do I have to flush before you go away?" - Unknown

4.) we're also booking a week of swim lessons later in the summer. as much as we'll be going to the lake and pool this year, i figured it'd come in handy. i believe the age of 3 is the year to shine, shine, shine.

5.) friday morning, i'll be leaving with some friends for a girl's weekend in hotlanta. we are all SOO excited about it. dinner reservations have been made at the city's finest restaurants, and we're really looking forward to the good eats, good drinks, good nightlife, and good laughter with awesome company. not sure if the city is ready for 12 wild women. bring it.

6.) today is auntie jess's 25th birthday. such a spring chicken she is. that said, we'll be helping her celebrate this weekend since obviously, we will be in her neck of the woods. her and adrianne will be meeting up with us, and i know those two are ALWAYS a good time. eek!! is it time to go yet!?

7.) i am amazed at how much food my kid can not eat, but wear. it's impressive, i say.

8.) weather like yesterday's really made me appreciate my job with no paycheck. because watching the rain with my kids still in our pajamas > $$$.

9.) the other day, we picked up daddy from work and headed out to lunch. we usually rotate on who decides where to eat. this time, daddy chose. it was a fail. why? because life lesson 537: just like chinese food, mexican should not be expensive. hubs will not be allowed to pick lunch location for awhile...unless it's the tried & true chappy's, of course. it was added to our list. the "no go" list. no bueno.

10.) my kids have been some sneezin' mofos this week. looks like spring is in the air! #colormeexcited

11.) just when i thought the weekend was full of fun already, it gets better. so once i get back on sunday, jay and i will be heading straight down to orange beach for a deep sea fishing trip with his brother (germ), auntie red, and friends. the boat (high cotton) leaves before sunset on monday morning for a 10 hour trip. i know most women would cringe at the thought of this, but it's been years since i've gone, and i'm (oddly enough) really looking forward to it. gimme some dramamine because the snapper and grouper are mine for the taking. let's just hope i don't fall overboard...

12.) "women in their 30s on the internet are like ninjas. they get in little black outfits & sneak their way into your marriage." -modern family

and lastly,

13.) monday morning after dropping off the mabster at school, i met up with some friends at kid's gym with the toshy. i almost forgot how nice it is to be able to watch and play with her on a one-on-one level. she is such a big girl already, yet i still consider her "my baby." it really opened my eyes as to how fast things are moving along. nothing's better than quality time with her. she deserves it. we love you more than you will ever know, toshy!
