See that beautiful little girl over there ............>

She is the daughter of a friend of mine. She has PWS. Another friend of mine is going to run a 10K in October to help find a cure for PWS. I am asking any of you who can, please click on that beautiful baby's picture and donate. This is a great cause, and being as it's a friend of mine, it's close to my heart. Every little bit helps. I'd love to write more on this, but for now I have to tend to some screaming kids, but please click the link above, read about PWS and how it effects these beautiful kids.

Mother's Day Weekend Day 3

The day started out with breakfast. We decided to go easy and do breakfast tacos since we were planning on a big lunch/dinner. After breakfast we headed out to South Padre Island. We did a little shopping.

We decided on lunch at Pirates Landing. Mr. Tankersley and I both went with a shrimp sampler with baked potato and cole slaw. Of course I had a margarita made with Patron. Y-U-M-M-Y. Oh, I almost forgot, we started the meal off with some raw oysters (thank you Mr. Tankersley for turning me on to these). P had a "crabby patty" or a cheese burger in other words. M went for a nice bottle. The lunch started off kind of rocky because M was not a happy camper. He was hot, and it was crowded and noisy. After he finally fell asleep we were able to enjoy our meal. We decided to get dessert after. Mr. Tankersley had the Dulce De Leche cheese cake, I had the chocolate cake with fudge frosting topped with chocolate chips and almonds, and P had plain vanilla ice cream.

When we got back into town we had to do some grocery shopping, and Mr. Tankersley bought me some chocolate covered strawberries. They are so good. Not much else really, we took some good pictures today. I can't wait until Tuesday when my other gift gets here. I will share photos then.

Mother's Day Weekend Day 2

The day started out with breakfast at a little Mexican place. I had barbacoa and menudo. It was very yummy. After breakfast we did a little shopping. We got a water cooler since we go through 2 cases of bottled water a week. Mr. Tankersley also bought my second Mother's Day gift which was a Cricut. I have been wanting one for a long time, but ended up buying an Quick Cutz Epic Six from Scrapbooksteals. I can't wait to use the Cricut. I played with it a bit today and I really like it. When we move I'm going to need a third bedroom just for my craft stuff. *hint hint* honey.

After shopping we went to lunch at Chili's. It was good food, horrible service, but good food. I decided to forego the margarita this time though, I've drunk more this week than I have all year. Then we went grocery shopping which wasn't as exciting, but still had to be done.

I can't wait until Tuesday when my big present gets here. Until then, I'll update on tomorrow's festivities either tomorrow night or Monday (depending on how many margaritas I have out on the island). :)

Mother's Day Weekend Day 1

Well today marks day 1 of my wonderful Mother's Day weekend. I already know what my big present is, but since it won't be here until Tuesday it will stay a surprise to you all until I can get a pic taken.

So today I got a pedicure and got my nails done. They are both purple, even though they are different shades. It was a great deal. I really wanted the deluxe spa pedicure, but since I have a MAJOR case of razor burn (thank you cheapie disposables) he wouldn't do it for fear of a bad reaction to the menthol. As much as it would have been nice I have to thank him for thinking of my poor legs. :) He did a kick ass job on my nails though. I told Mr. Tankersley I want to take him with us when we move because I have never had someone do such a great job.

After that we went out to dinner at Red Lobster and I had the biggest margarita I've ever seen. Top shelf of course, this mama don't do the cheap tequila *GAG*. I could have easily put another one away, but since we had the boys I stopped at one.

I also got new lifting gloves today, but those won't be put to use until Tuesday when we get back in the gym. I needed them bad, and I can't wait to use them. They are black with pink (of course).

Stayed tuned tomorrow night for Mother's Day Weekend Day 2!!!!

Time for a deload

I am sick. The sinus pressure is about to kill me it is ridiculous. Mr. Tankersley hasn't had a deload this year so we decided now was a good time for one. No gym for a week, and we're going to eat things we shouldn't. Last night we went out for Mexican food and I had a margarita and Mr. Tankersley had a couple drinks as well. P really liked his taco and rice and beans. He ate like such a big boy. Afterward we went for milkshakes. Those were very yummy.

Maybe I'll cook tonight or maybe we'll go out again. Mr. Tankersley has his Wednesday foreman's meeting tonight so no telling what we'll do. The good news is I only put on a pound from last night so that will be super easy to lose.

M did really good after getting his shots. You wouldn't even know he had them. No fussiness, no pain, no redness, no swelling, and he still sleeps all night. He's getting so big. He tries to roll over from back to belly, but he can't quite get his leg over. He's been doing belly to back since he was 3 weeks old. He also pulls himself up to standing if you hold his hands while he's sitting.

This weekend is Mother's Day and we'll probably go to McAllen to do some shopping. Mr. Tankersley is going to cook me breakfast like he used to before we started the weight loss routines. I can't wait. It's going to be so yummy!!!
