One Little Word for 2011

But first, to finish 2010.  More on the word later!  Happy New Year!

I {heart} Ana!

Ana White, that is.  If you haven't met Ana and browsed her awesome site, well then!  Get right over there and check it out.  I never would have thought that my cute husband and I could build our own furniture, but we've built two beds and a coffee table!  We even got to brag about it HERE.

Check it out! You won't be sorry.

I'm in!

Inspired by Amy, I think I'm going to take the 21 Days to Getting Organized Challenge on A Bowl Full of Lemons.  Who wants to join in?

I'm a pretty scattered and chaotic person by nature, so this should be interesting! Thanks for the idea, Amy.

Settling in...

You may have heard by now that we've added two new family members to the Rawlings clan:  kitties Max and Ruby.  We recently lost our sweet PJ to old age, and decided that we wanted another kitty.  Well, one fun-filled day at the animal shelter later, and we came home with two!  They are sweet, kid-friendly kitties and get along so well. 

Max (Maximus, Maxie Boy, Maximillian...)  A soft-spoken, muscle-bound, cuddle-bug.

Ruby (for the record, MY kitty...isn't she pretty? She thinks so.)

I'd love to write more, but I think I have a litter box to scoop.

Visit to See the Bass Pro Santa...Now With Less Santa!

Last night we decided to brave the crowds and take the girls to see Santa at Bass Pro in Manteca.

When we got there, we thought, "Great--no line!"  Well, there was no line because Santa was at dinner.  Ooops.  So, we headed over to Red Robin a little bit ahead of schedule, but not before grabbing a seven o'clock "Bass Pass" (think Disneyland Fast Pass, but with bass).

If you're going to wait somewhere, it might as well be a very TASTY somewhere.

Am I right???

Lots of this...

 A little of this...

A little of that...

Snuggles betwee Tic Tac Toe.

And...why, hello there Diet Coke.

You know you're in trouble when you get your bacon cheeseburger and two mintues later, wonder, "Who just ate my burger???"

"Danger's my MIDDLE name."

Finally, it was time to head over to Bass Pro and kill some time.  Red Robin was just too quick and snappy (my inhaling of my burger didn't help either).

Bass Pro...
...home of Power Bait.

Remote control monster trucks...

...and chocolate fish.

And here is the point where my camera battery died.  Yes. It died.   So no Santa photo for you...yet.  Once I get the online access code, look out!
