Six Word Saturday!

Forgot The Green And Got Pinched!

Honestly though, I don't really celebrate St. Patty's Day in a "celebratory" kind of way.

I have a kid so I make sure I (usually) make sure I have green on, but that's about the extent of it.

I don't go out and get all lushed up cause I don't really drink,

so this surely doesn't apply to me....

But this I can celebrate!!

Doesn't these just look yummy? And "oh so" pretty?!

Happy St. Patty's Day!

{Be safe out there!!}

Writer's Workshop: It happened at Disneyland

It happened at Disneyland.

Yes, we were at this magical place, filled with laughter and smiling faces!

But then something happened.

Being here, we are among kids. Kids all around but also our own kids....okay, and myself.

It was me, my husband, my daughter and our friend and her two daughters.

My daughter and I as well as our friend's two daughters reflected on a trip we had taken to Yosemite and a funny incident that took place. So we started to play out that funny incident again, just in a bigger way.

I don't recall who started it but for all I know, it could have been me, yes...ME. Hey! I'm a kid at heart too, ya know.


As we were in line for a ride, I remember one of us oh-so-slightly touching a nearby person and claiming....wait for it......wait for it.....


That's right! From that moment on, as we were racing from ride to ride, we were randomly touching people as they passed us and yelling out CHEESE TOUCH!

It was so funny! We couldn't stop laughing. With the strange looks we got from people to people getting startled.

It. Was. Hilarious!

Then, later in the evening at California Adventure, we were in line to get some ice cream and my daughter touched the young boy in front of us and said those words and the look on that boys face was priceless. He looked panicked. Didn't know which way to go and then, he touched his grandma and said CHEESE TOUCH! We started busting up laughing.

Good times. Good times!

Funny things she says!

While in Key West on our snorkeling trip, not more than 5 minutes was my daughter in the water when she got stung by a jelly fish.

Later, after we got home from our trip, my daughter says to me, "Mommy, when I got stung by the jelly fish, why didn't I see electricity in the water?"

I think my daughters been watching too much Spongebob Squarepants!! LOL


Last week while getting ready for work and my daughter was getting ready for school, we were having the following conversation:

Me: When grandma and grandpa pick you up after school, tell them to drive careful.

Daughter: I will.

Me: Tell them I said they are carrying precious cargo!

Daughter: Tell them what?

Me: They're carrying precious cargo.

*Look of confusion from my daughter*

Me: Do you know what that is?

Daughter:Yes! And I'm not that!

Me: What is it then?

Daughter: It's a snail!

*I begin to laugh*

Me: That's escargot, not precious cargo. Cargo is like suitcases, silly!!


The other day we went to my in-laws house to drop our dog off as we were going out of town. As we were in the car, ready to leave, my father-in-law comes out and asked about my husband taking a look at this cassette tape converter and figure out how to work it when he has a chance.

He asked if we had a cassette tape at home and my husband said he didn't recall, maybe but to grab one any way.

That's when my daughter, from the backseat asked "what's a cassette tape?"

Really???!!! LOL

OMG....I feel old now!
