Outta My Mind

 Here's another edition of "Outta My Mind"...(very) random things...outta my mind.....
  • Yes, I have followed through on my goal of cooking  my dinners from Pinterest recipes this week!  Probably be sharing that tomorrow.
  • Tonight, round two of parent teacher conferences.  Last night we were at the high school (Megan), tonight middle school (Jacob and Kristin).  (Those 5 minute time slots are going to be a bit crazy!)
  • My heart is in a small town in Indiana today...a childhood friend of mine lost her husband to cancer after a 15 month battle.  Wish she wasn't 8 hours away...
  • You know how it feels when you get your "hopes" up...and it doesn't work out?  The Tigers, the Presidential race.  That's life, right?
  • My "painter" (husband) is heading towards our third weekend of our family room being in shambles...I hope he gets the trim done this weekend so we can put the room back together.
  • Proud of all three of my kids report cards the first marking period.  Everyone has a 3.5 GPA or above.  Megan is taking two AP (college level) courses as a sophomore...intense!  With their extracurricular schedule...it is amazing what they were able to accomplish!! 
  • It's my brag blog and I can brag if I want to!!??  (to the tune of..."It's My Party and I Can Cry If I Want To")
  • I dragged my husband to Kohl's last night to get a new mattress topper with my 30% off coupon.  They were 50% off and then the coupon (which I forgot at home) and they still gave me my 30% off 'cause they have excellent customer service!!  Oh, and I especially loved when another lady in line "gasped" when the sales clerk said, "you saved $500 something" and earned $50 in Kohl's cash"!!!  (Ding, ding, ding...who needs the casino!?)
  • I might have talked too long to Megan's music director at conferences last night!!?  I LOVE her and she's hilarious.  Megan secretly said, "c'mon mom, she already likes me"!  (Megan only happened to be there for her private lesson...was not part of other conferences.)
  • My kids have all "emailed" me their Christmas lists (at my request).  Some of them were sent back with a note saying "there will not be any Apple electronic products given this year".  (Don't feel bad for them, they all got an iPod Touch last year and are not deprived in any way!)
Apparently, I had a lot on my mind, but now I'm off to conferences.
  What's on your mind?????

Congrats to your kiddos for such great report cards! I laughed about being emailed the Christmas list...very new age tekkie! (plus having it all in writing is a good idea) I'm with you on the disappointment of the Pres. race and yes, you can brag all you want on your blog! Have a good weekend!
