The New Deck, Mashed Potato "Pizza", Garlic Lime BBQ Chicken

Perhaps the very best question that you can memorize and repeat, over and over, is, what is the most valuable use of my time right now?

Brian Tracy

Busy is my new 4-letter word LOL

Sometimes you just need to stop and smell the flowers. :)

On Saturday after dance rehearsal we went to the market. We had lunch and picked up the popcorn for the carnival... Coming up on Thursday.

While we were there I ran into Peaches. Peaches is a lingerie store. Don't get any crazy ideas LOL On Friday my bra broke. I know, I know what woman only has 1 bra???? THIS woman! 

It is so pathetic but I HATE spending money on evil necessities. You know bras, tampons, milk! 

Well I went in and explained like this "Hi I'm not wearing a bra. I need help but I am breastfeeding but she is 18 months so these (I make hand gestures to my chest) won't be here for much longer. I already have bras that fit my prebaby body so I just need something for now and I mean right now lol"

The lady asked me what size I was wearing and I told her a 38 C. 

She laughed at me.

Within minutes she had me measured and in a bra that made me feel GREAT! It was a 30 C LOL So it actually feels very tight but man, the lift! I feel like I have perky boobs again! I feel like I have a waist again! There is definitely something to be said for a good fitting bra :)

Saturday was the big night!!! HBear had her recital :) they did Happy Feet and she was spectacular :)

Daddy got her a rose and she was enchanted lol by the whole evening :)

On Sunday we went to visit Mom. We also made a big decision, we turned SBean front facing!

And then we went for breakfast... Ice cream!

We also played at the park and the beach :)

We capped off the weekend with a swim and a delicious dinner at Grandma and Grandpa's :)

Dad and my FIL finished the deck this weekend too. It is VERY exciting!!! It looks freaking awesome :) my Mom would have loved this deck.

Ninja planted all my herbs too :)

Today was pretty busy. I have 2 more days until the carnival and then I can think of other things LOL. Tonight I made BBQ chicken and mashed potato pizza. OK so it isn't pizza at all but my kids don't like potatoes? Seriously WTF? So I tried to trick them. It kinda worked on HBear she said "I like it but only a little, it is not my favorite." Fair enough. She ate it though :) SBean... not so much LOL

We loved it though and the chicken is easy and very tasty!
