Day 22: When you were a kit, what did you want to be when you grew up?




I really don't know... I wanted to be different things. The one thing I do remember was that I wanted to be an artist, even though I don't remember liking to draw. I also wanted to be a writer, which has kinda come true.  I've been featured/published in a hand full of books and contribute to a few magazines, that is fun!
Right now, my 7 year old wants to be a rock star! I don't remember wanting to be that, even though most 7 year old girls want to.

Day 21: Most recent words of wisdom you heard that stuck with you
This one is easy... as you may know I am a couponer and sometimes a couponer, especially a beginner can start to coupon and use coupons without thinking, without having a plan, without taking into consideration that you may be spending just as much as you were before you started couponing. 
There have been some moments in the past few months that I have done that. Another thing is that you start to get greedy and not want to share your stockpile! Well, I just hear this quote from a fellow couponer and it's actually a quote fro…

**********30 weeks**********   At 30 weeks Moyashi is now the size of a head of cabbage! and... from BabyCenter.com
Your baby's about 15.7 inches long now, and she weighs almost 3 pounds. A pint and a half of amniotic fluid surrounds her, but that volume will decrease as she gets bigger and takes up more room in your uterus. Her eyesight continues to develop, though it's not very keen; even after she's born, she'll keep her eyes closed for a good part of the day. When she does open them, she'll respond to changes in li…

Day 20: Photo of you as a young child 

I absolutley love this photo! (that's me in the pink!) This was the summer of 1988 (+ or - a year) and it was one of the first big family vacation that I can remember! We went with my dad's brothers to Astroworld, which is now closed, in Houston, Texas. And I was so cute, wasn't I?

Day 18: A recipe you love
Since it's the day after Father's Day... I've been thinking of my daddy, and he use to make the best snacks and food ever! He wasn't a chef, but everytime he did make something for my sister and I, we loved it. These may sound weird, but they are totally normal.
1. Fish Brains: Tuna Salad with Tortilla Chips 2. Fried Slugs: Fried Bologna in a rolled up Toasted Corn Tortilla 3. Poor Food: Anything and everything Mixed together
Love you daddy and I make these snacks/meals for my girls still!

*Happy Father's Day*

Happy Father's Day to my daddy, may he rest in peace and to my husband, that I love so much and to all the other men who have experienced being a father one way or another. You will never be forgotten!
