Late again.  Oh well . . . at this point I think my best friend and I are doing well just to post when we can.  LOL. Part of the fun is wondering if we'll get our blog posted before the end of the week.  I will be the first to admit that my challenge--and meeting the "deadline" has been and epic fail.  Ha.  That is okay, though.  LAST week's challenge was shoes.  So, I'm posting a picture my shoes of choice these days. 

Flips flops!!  I have several pairs of these and wear them everyday.  I DO make sure they match my clothes, though.  Does that count?  LOL.  Its getting warmer outside and these days I just want to feel comfortable so flip flops are my shoe of choice!

I decided to do today's challenge RIGHT NOW while I have a few minutes--otherwise it will be late again.  Ha.  This week's challenge is sports.  We have come to love sports in our house.  We enjoy playing sports with the boys (although I do more watching than playing these days) and we enjoy watching professional sports on TV.  There is just something about it that we enjoy.  Its great to make a fun dinner of finger foods or hot dogs or even grill some kabobs and eat while you watch a game.  The boys love playing sports--soccer, baseball, football, and basketball are all played pretty regularly here.  The boys even have a basketball goal in their room.  I thought for today's challenge I would post a few pictures of my boys playing some of the sports they enjoy!

Once again I'm behind on the blog challenge.  LAST week's challenge was to blog about food.  So, here is my food choice for this blog. :) 

This is a small container of ice cream that Jacob bought for me one day last week.  We have been keeping ice cream in the freezer on a regular basis these days.  Foods smell and taste funny to me right now.  Ice cream, however, still tastes like ice cream so I've been eating a lot of it lately.  I don't think I have ever appreciated ice cream (other than the home made Butterfinger ice cream my grandparents used to make at the lake when I was little and we'd go camping) as much as I do now. 

So, here's to ice cream and to possibly trying every flavor available!  Ha.

Well, I'm behind on this challenge.  We have been busy with field trips, end of school activities, Logan's birthday party, and my cousin, Matt, has been staying with us since Saturday.  So, I'm doing last week's challenge today (shhh!).   The challenge was numbers, which of course could be anything.  I thought I'd have a little fun with this one. 

Here are the 4 numbers I have chosen for this blog.

Now to explain my crazy reason for choosing these 4 numbers.  First of all, these numbers are the ages of everyone who lives in my house.  I was thinking about this the other day and something wacky occurred to me so I thought I'd use it for this blog.  I am 33 years old.  If I take the numbers in my age and add them together (3+3) I get the number 6, which is Alex's age.  Jacob is 32--if I take the numbers in his age and add them together (3+2) I get the number 5, which is Logan's age.  We could even take this a step further and multiply the numbers in my age (3x3) and get 9, which is the number of years Jacob and I will be married this year. And if you multiply the numbers in Jacob's age (3x2) you get 6, which, again, is Alex's age.

Isn't that crazy?  I had fun with this challenge though.  Ha.
