Hi there! I'm a bit of a bore lately, no?

(it's a bitch to have a little sister who has your password)

Just in case you were all a bit BORED that I haven't updated recently:

I'm still here. It seems, almost my whole family got sick after spending the weekend celebrateing Ryan's 3rd Birthday, and that has kept me a bit busy. (such a lame excuse, I know)

Now that my sis is on the mend, apparantly, my site will be updated to join the Beta-blogger world sometime next week.

Other than that, I'm still fabulous, my kids are still ab-so-freaking-lutely adorable, and this weekend is SURE to provide me with something to blog about. It better, or next week, my dear, sweet, angelic, wonderful, intelligent, incredible, beautiful, amazing sister will once again hijack my blog and post for me. :)

To keep you pacified, until I do actually update all by myself, here are some videos from Mr. Bo-Bo's big weekend that my FABULOUS little sister took:

Look at what a dedicated mom I am - I even managed to keep my sunglasses on my head the entire time. :)
Note: My sister(not pictured) and I learned that multiple slides down the bouncer causes quite a bit of friction, which leads to a literal occurence of a 'chapped ass'. Who. Knew?

Here's Bo-Bo (Ryan) getting his BIG present on Sunday - can you imagine what we'll see when he turns 16? No hesitation. :) Can you say, 'Boy'????

I am sore.

I went back to the gym every day this week- well Monday-Wednesday doing all of my favorite aerobics classes and I am now having trouble doing simple things like WALKING :) heehee! Its a good sore though. I had been really good up until right before Reese's b-day party and then I had to miss one class here and another there- you know how that goes so with my goal being to make it in 3 times a week I have started once again with full force.

Monday (not that anyone cares) I do my weight lifting class with Paula who is probably a 50 something year old lady who still looks like freaking Barbie. Its sickening really but I love her class. ;)

Tuesday I go and do Adelle's step class. Sweet little Adelle. She beats the hell out of my body and I don't even realize it because she is so sweet and is just up there smiling away saying things like "You can do it" and "Thats the way".

Then on Wednesday night I do Susans class. Susan is a professional weight lifter and goes to competitions to compete and what knot. Basically she is built like a brick shit house. Can I say that? Anyway I have finally gotten to where I can keep up with her now and needless to say sometimes at the end of class when everyone else has left I am still in there laying on the floor and they have to drag me out so that the Latin Spice class can begin. :)

Now to add to all of that I am going to start training tomorrow with trainer Randy (on Fridays). Good God, somone please help me. :) heehee! We shall see how it goes tomorrow. Alot will depend on how Miss Reese likes the nursery. Last time I tried to put her in there they came and got me 10, yes 10 minutes later.

In other news I am happy to say that I think Ryan is finally adjusting to his pre-schools. He didn't cry and cling to my leg the last few times I dropped him off so I would say that is real progress :)

He got to see a real fire truck on Wednesday but he was upset that they wouldn't let him climb on the ladder. He also has decided that he is going to be a dentist at the age of almost 3 which is just fine with me.

Speaking of being almost 3 (WOW, where has the time gone?!?) our baby boy will be three next Sunday. Thursday we kick off the birthday festivities with bringing his class cupcakes and it continues on all the way through Sunday. We have lots o' fun stuff planned for young Mr. Watkins to do. Yes, I also love birthdays. :)

His friend-party is at Beyond Bounce on Saturday which is a moonwalk place. I am so pumped because there is no cleaning of my house required, there is no preparing tons of food- We just go with a cake and goody bags, order everyone pizza and they do the rest. doesn't that sounds relaxing? We shall see! Anyway thats about all I got for today. I am off to find my icyhot cream. :)

Happy Thursday!

On we go...

So what does one do to cheer oneself up when one has had a shitty week? They go to Party City, the Halloween Store!

Let me let you in on a little secret, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE me some HALLOWEEN!!!
Its by far my favorite holiday!

I also in general love the month of October. Fran and I celebrate our wedding anniversary, the time changes to where its darker earlier, Monday night football has resumed, all the good shows are back on, if you live anywhere but TX it starts to cool off... which is of course a great reason to start making chili and cornbread and all the other favorite cold weather foods!!

So here it is the middle of September, and yes I know its early, however last year we waited until the last minute to get costumes and the store was packed full, everything was out, the lines were like 20 people deep and it was MISERABLE!!! So this year we decided to get a jump on it!!!

After much deliberation it was decided that Mr. Bobo is going to be a pirate, arrrgh matey, (because he liked the idea of getting a sword :)) and my sweet Reese is going to be a lady bug, buzzzzzzz. Fran and I have yet to decide what we are going to be...

If you will look over at my sisters site you can see that her and I are completely nuts :) Happy Wednesday!

I am honored to be apart of a tribute that Dale came up with to honor each and every victim of 9/11. My tribute is to honor Judy Hazel Fernandez, who was taken from this world, far too soon.


On the morning of September 11, 2001 Judy Hazel
Fernandez decided to go to her office on the 107th
floor North Tower of the World Trade Center where she
worked for Cantor Fitzgerald before she left on her
business trip.

She was a conscientious and organized person and her position as a benefits Specialist in the Human Resources department was a perfect fit.
Judy started at Cantor Fitzgerald in 1998 after she graduated from Rutgers University with a Biology degree. Shortly thereafter she brought her cousin Maria Theresa Santillan to Cantor Fitzgerald.

Judy and Maria were not only first cousins but very close friends. Maria was to be married in May and Judy was going to be her Maid of Honor.

Judy’s Mom said her daughter and her niece "were full of life,
full of ambition." Since Sept. 11, she said, the words "beautiful, intelligent and caring" loom large in her mind when thinking about her daughter and niece.

"She knew what she wanted in life, and she was going to do what she had to do to get it," said her sister, Emma.

Judy Hazel Fernandez was 27 years old.

A Tribute

People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life... like loving everybody all the time and being nice.
Well, Kathy already knew how to do that, so she didn't have to stay as long.
Rest in Peace my dear friend.
