Yesterday we had a birthday party for Josie. It was a Selena Gomez, slip n slide, trampoline, playhouse, makeup party. I hope the girls had fun. It was hard to tell because they were eerily quiet.

|The kids enjoyed a nice little easter egg hunt|

|Josie was so exhausted from all the fun that she burst into tears as soon as we got into the car. Now that is some hard playing:)|
|Poor baby was so tired she didn't even know what to do with herself.|
|This is me keeping my cool. Notice Josie's face in the background.|

|Luke loves hanging with the girls. I can't say that they feel the same way.|
Aunt Leaa, we are so glad y'all were able to come enjoy taco night with the Bergs. Let's do it again soon.

Wednesday night is my favorite night to watch television. 8:00- The Middle, 8:30- Better With You, 9:00- Modern Family. And guess what? Today is Wednesday. Ye-Haw! I'm gonna watch me some shows. Last night we had tacoless tacos and tonight we had tortillaless fajitas. I'm thinking tomorrow night we should have bunless hamburgers and maybe Friday night we can have noodleless spaghetti. I joke, but really, dinner the last two nights has been quite excellent. We had a very uneventful, yet wonderful weekend. We started off early Saturday morning by hitting a few thrift stores. Then we went to Lowe's and purchased an awesome shelving system. Matt wanted it so that he could store all his brewing gizmos, and I wanted it so that I could make the kitchen look like a display at a corner market. Home decor has always been a source of contention between Matt and I. I tend to get a little themey with the decor and Matt is definitely more eclectic, which is probably a good thing. Back in middle school I painted sunflowers all over my bedroom walls. My bedroom always had a theme. Then when Matt and I first got married, we both fell in love with Asian design. Of course we could only afford knockoff knick knacks from Big Lots, but we thought it was wonderful. I'm happy to say that our home is currently themeless. No roosters in the kitchen or small, wooden birdhouses in the living room. I realize now that I must stay away from objects that could lead to themes. It's just too tempting. No themes, just love. Home sweet home:)

Matt and I are going through a major Craigslist phase. Anything that doesn't have functional or sentimental value is at risk of being sold on Craigslist. It is such an easy way to sell things. The only downside, besides the risk you take that the person you are dealing with could be a serial killer, is responding to all the inquiries from people who don't really intend on buying the item in the first place. So far though, Craigslist has been an easy way for us to make a little extra money, and that is always a good thing. Speaking of good things, I received an early birthday present today. My friend, Belinda, had a funky little mini-apron made for me. Some teachers scoff at mini-aprons, but I find them to be quite useful. I can stuff the pockets full of treats for the sweet boys and girls, or I can take Pokemon cards and cell phones from the naughty children and store them safely in my apron pockets. Matt hasn't yet asked me what I want for my birthday, but I have something in mind. The No! No! Hair Removal System. I realize that I'm probably just one of those chumps that falls for the magic of infomercials, but this little piece of technology seems amazing. I don't even own it yet, but I have big plans for it. Bye, Bye underarm hair! I'm pretty sure that the No! No! Hair Removal System is out of our price range, so I have a back up gift- The Shark Floor Steamer. We have hardwood and tile throughout the majority of the house, and each time I see the infomercial for the Shark Floor Steamer, I sigh. I sigh because it looks like it works so wonderfully. No harsh chemicals. No messy mops or buckets. Just pure steam. While I'm on the topic of my birthday, let me tell you about my plan. There are a few other girls from work that have birthdays in April, so we are going to celebrate together. Four girls, out on the town, celebrating the gift of life. I've never participated in anything so movie-like. I'm thinking the four of us should use the names- Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte (from Sex and the City) when we go out on the town. I'm excited to see how it all plays out. I'm sure there will be a lot of laughing and a lot of mojitos and a lot of "Hallelujah FCAT is OVER!!!!!"
