                                                                                    She also sent me this owl card. I think it is
                                                                                                                so cute!

Five Question Friday

 This is my first time doing the 5 question on Friday thing but I think I can squeeze a little time in for this. I have been so busy with moving, my kids starting a new school, and falling down the stairs and hurting my tail bone SUPER SUPER BAD. Well anyways if you want you can head over to My Little life and check out what other had to say.
 1. What is your favorite Halloween candy? York Peppermint Pattie with the orange center. They are the best and yes they taste better when it is orange and not white
 2. Do you fold your socks? Well I tuck them in to each other. Does that count as folding?

 3. What is something that you wish you had been warned about? You don't always go back to the same size as you were before you had kids

Picture 1 = before kids                Picture 2 = while pregnant w/kids                   Picture 3 = After kids

 4. What is the most significant difference between you and your significant other? I am a go with the flow type of person I tend to let people walk on me and he is a hard ass that wont put up with no ones crap

 5. What are three words you would use to describe yourself? (And, just for fun...if your significant other is around, ask him/her what 3 words they would use to describe you!!) Shy, lonely, and different

Apple Orchard

Last Sunday we took our kids and two of there friends to the apple orchard/ pumpkin patch. They have the best Carmel apples there, which I thought were a bit expensive at $5. The kids all had fun, they got to go through a couple corn mazes and one of them was completely dark which they all thought was cool. They went on a hay ride, got there face painted, tattoos, and went an a apple jolly jumper. They had fun and we got to get out of the house for awhile so I would have to say it was a good day.

Makeup Bag

I won this really cute makeup bag on Katie's blog. It is from Monogrammers Supply.  You should go check out there store they have some awesome stuff for good prices. I have a couple things in mind for Christmas presents.

Hometown Buffet

 Last Sunday we took our kids to Hometown Buffet for breakfast. Alyssa went a couple weeks ago for the first time and she was amazed by the place. We have never taken our kids to a buffet so they had no clue there were places like this. Well I am not a fan of buffets so I had been avoiding going. Everyday since Alyssa had been my kids have been bugging us to go, so I finally gave in and said I would only go for breakfast. So the dreaded day came and you would of thought we were going some place special with how excited my kids were. Then once we get in they sit at the table and I tell them get up and eat and my boys look at me like I am crazy I said no really grab a plate and get what ever you want. They all think this is the best place around "not me though". I would have to say my kids had more then I had ever seen them eat at least 8 plates each and no I am not kidding. I thought for sure they would be sick and it was just a couple hours later they were hungry again.
