The Queen: Michelle

The Queen: Michelle
I am 28 years old. Still a princess but the queen of my family. Spoiled beyond belief. Lucky and truely blessed. A lover. A crafter. A mother. A wife. A friend. This is me.

My King: Junior

My King: Junior
The LOVE of my life! He completes me and balances me out in every way. He's a workaholic. He's loud, blunt, and crazy. He drinks Monsters like his life depends on it. Above all he is the greatest Daddy I could ever ask for, for my children. And he treats me like his Queen (and he calls me that too).

The Model Child: Diego Ray

The Model Child: Diego Ray
9 years old. My only boy. He is the epitome of the perfect child. He is so responsible and independent. Wise beyond his years. He is laughter, he is love, he is compassion, he is simply amazing. He keeps me grounded and reminds me always that I am beautiful. He is a natural born leader and takes care of the household and family better than me!

The Diva: Alayna Danae

The Diva: Alayna Danae
7 years old. She is drama. My fashionista for sure with a style all her own. Sensitive and loving when she wants to be. Thumbsucker. My biggest headache because she is the most like me. She is the only one who can cause me to become uncontrollably angry. She loves to dance. She loves to model. My bookworm and most academic.

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace

The Wild Child: Arielle Marie-Grace
4 years old. This one is something else. She is pure comedy. Never a dull moment with her crazy antics. She is also the crybaby. She does things her own way. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to be cute to get it. My Disney loving pal. So girly. Her favorite color is pink. Loves Rapunzel. Will wear a dress every single day. Can't leave the house without a bow in her hair. She refuses.

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle

The Munchkin: Atalie Belle
2 years old. My sweet baby. She loves her Mommy above all else. She is a cuddlebug for sure. The calmest most well behaved baby ever! But she has TONS of energy. She is so small and petite. She loves to sing and dance. She so SO ready for ballet and has yet to even step foot in a class. She loves Minnie Mouse and watching Disney Jr. She is hilarious and talks way too much.

A Day In My Life

I follow a lot of blogs where they post often "A day in the Life" posts. They're so fun to see other Mom's days and how similar or different they are form mine. So I jumped on the bandwagon...

A brief look at a day in my life:

Woke up and got Diego up and ready for school... Jr picked him up to take him like every morning... and as soon as he was out the door...

I checked my emails, facebook, and movie downloads. Morning ritual.


And I admired the rainbow fish that diego made me


The girls woke up and Jr got home... and he brought breakfast from Jack in the Box. It's been a long time that we've bought breakfast... so that was good.


Then I took a little cat nap... while the girls watched cartoons. But let's get serious I hardly slept with them asking me something every 5 minutes... But Jr slept.


I got the Princess ready for school. Dropped her off. And since Diego had early realease I picked him up after I took her. And I had the baby with me today. I usually don't. So since this time of the day is very chaotic I took no pictures.

After we picked up Diego I headed to target in search of Dr. Seuss stuff for my sister-in-law's baby shower that I am planning... and it's in 2 weeks. No such luck...

But I did find popcorn box containers for the Diego/Arielle's joint birthday party in March... I am doing a Circus/Carnival theme.


And I did make it home with another purchase...


I put Arielle to bed while Diego and I worked on his homework


And I made lunch at the same time... and we ate.


By this time it was time for me to go pick up Alayna from school... so I left alone to get her.

And on the way back I decided to go to Savers to see if I could find Dr. Seuss books. They are expensive brand new so I figured it was worth a shot! Alayna was in book heaven at Savers... good thing the kids books are 60 cents and if you buy 4 you get one free.


After Savers, I went to my parents house to drop off some cards for my Dad from my Mom's funeral so he could keep them... and Alayna and I walked to picked up his mail and dropped it back off. We do this for him all the time.


Then Jr texted me to bring him a Monster... so I stopped at Circle K and I scored my new favorite drink... I've recently discovered it and I am hooked... better than all the Cherry Coke I drink cuz Crush has no caffeine!


Once we got home finally I showed Jr what I scored myself at Savers... it makes me so happy!

I did find 4 Dr. Seuss books (for Jen's shower) and I got Alayna a book since the 5th one is free. She chose The Grinch which is one of my most favorite books ever!


I got Alayna these shoes... which I have been on a hunt for some plain flats for her because she's outgrown all her shoes... and only her sneakers fit her now... and sneakers just don't go with dresses. I paid $3.99 for these! They're from Target (circo brand) and looked brand new! Score!


And lastly I found these! The first purchase I have made for the new baby. Since I don't need a lot of clothes for her because I saved all of Arielle's I haven't had the need to really buy anything. But she does have a lack of clothes in the 6-9 month area I am noticing. And I saw these 2 things! Both 99 cents and both Carters. Very new looking (the pink dress looks like it's never been worn) and I just couldn't leave them. And what do you know... both 9 months size!


So then I made pizzas for dinner, we ate, and I worked on getting the invites finished for the baby shower


And then we all showered and got ready for bed... I got the kids stuff ready for tomorrow because I have a Dr. appointment first thing in the morning and I hate rushing.


P.S. If you look hard you can see Jr wrote "I Luv U" on the shower door. The kids get a kick out of the pictures we make while in the shower so I tried to capture it. I'll have to try again another day...
