Manic Monday

Hello?  Hello?!
Because who doesn't love to talk on a Watermelon phone?
Happy Monday!

Happy Monday?

I'm actually ok with Mondays.  Except the going back to work deal.  But, I like to just take a breather and think about the past weekend and what we will be doing for the next weekend.  Thus . . . Manic Monday posts were born.

I thought it would be fun to start off my Monday's telling you about my weekend, what we did and what we have planned for the week & weekend ahead.  I also thought this could help me with the upkeep of my photographs.

Friday we continue our weekly Friday night grilled pizza night.  We LOVE, LOVE, LOVE grilled pizza.  I make the dough the in the bread maker and when the husband comes home from work, he fires up the grill and in 10 minutes we have dinner.  Yum!

Saturday, the husband had to go to a bacholor party.  I decided since #1 son was well-behaved at school for the last 2 weeks (he wonly goes 2 times a week) that I'd take him to see Cars 2.  It was his first time at the movies and he was so excited.  He thought it was "So cool!"  He was ok.  But I'm not sure I'd take him again anytime soon.  We'll just do our movie night weekend with the popcorn I make.

What I thought about Cars 2?  I liked it.  One of Pauly's first movies that I got out of the library for him to watch was Cars.  We found it boring.  So, despite what I heard of bad reviews, I really like it. Maybe I need to watch Cars again?

Sunday was our day at my in-law's lake house.  These kids LOVE Green Pond.  So much that Pauly kept saying "I want to go back to the green pond!"

When we got home, I decided that it was Watermelon for dinner.  The kids loved it.  I have pictures:

Summer is here!

It's official as of 1:16pm est on June 21, 2011.  We have now had 1 full day of summer.  Let me tell you how excited I am!  Then, I get sad thinking now our days will be getting shorter again.  :(  Why does summer always have to fly by?

I have made a 50 days of summer list.  I wish I can remember who I orginally saw it from, but if you google 50 Days of Summer, you will get a zillion results.

So far, I can check off about 3.  I do need to change "Strawberry" picking to something else since strawberries are just about done.  :(  Last year we went strawberry picking and it was a blast!

We grilled pizzas last Friday.  OMG, I will never make pizza in the oven again (well, in less I have to!).  Grilling pizza is AWE-SOME!  This will be our Friday night summer tradition.

Yum, mommy!

Even my pickiest at all of his!

Happy Father's Day!

We was just a great day yesterday in the Heerema family.  We woke up and I had the kitchen somewhat decorated thanks to It's Always A Party at the Parkers.  This lady is ultra-talented!  I downloaded her FREE printables.  You really need to go see her stuff. My pictures are crappy as was my display compared to hers!

The night before, I was lucky enough to kick Paul out of the house with a friend to go to the bar (thankfully, he actually mentioned this night out!) and Pauly and I made maple bacon muffins.  Those cute cupcake toppers are part of the printable from It's Always A Party at the Parkers.  Aren't they just so adorable? 

I wish I took better pictures of everything.  Next, the PRESENTS!  The present that I made was from How Does She Do That?  It's a pistacho container and the inside (which you will have to go to her site to see) is divided into 2 sections: "To Eat" and "To Toss".  Dad's didn't come out nearly as good as Grandpa's did.  I wish I took a picture of Grandpas.

Someone is enjoying her maple bacon muffin!

Thanks for visiting!
