This weeks WOW is indubitably, every time I hear that word I think of one thing….Mary Poppins, and not the movie in its entirety, but one small itty bitty part…when Bert says “indubitably” in the middle of the famous song supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (okay oddly enough supercalifragilisticexpialidocious is in spell-check!).  Thought I’d share the song with you all, so you can see for yourself the famous indubitably for yourself!

So….did you catch when Bert said “indubitably”??!!  Did ya, did ya, did ya!!???

Here are some indubitable facts about Mary Poppins, indubitably one of my favorite Disney movies by the way!!*

  • Mary Poppins won 5 Oscars and 12 other awards.  Never before had Walt Disney won more awards at the Academy Awards then that night (as of 2006).
  • At the time of filming, it was the most expensive film made by Disney
  • Many of the nannies in line for the job interview were actually men in drag!
  • It was the top grossing movie for twenty years!
  • Mary Poppins and Mrs.. Banks never speak to each other in the movie!

Happy Girl

A couple days ago, Amy brought her girls over to play with the triplets, along with her niece Emilia who she is now nannying for.  Emilia is 6 months old, and is quite the cutie!!  I told Amy, that these photos were blog-worthy :-)


Prepping for the BIG birthday extravaganza tomorrow at the Munro’s household!  They are doing a joint birthday for all four kids since their birthday’s are all within 6 weeks of each other!  So Alex & I have been busily helping prep and decorate!  Julia goes all out for her parties and this one is no exception!  Just wait…you’ll be blown away!!  So until then….

25 Years Ago…

On August 24, 1985, this beautiful little girl entered the world!  


Now who could that be?!  Hmmmmm…

Funny thing is look my mouth was big even as a baby!!  My poor parents claim I never shut it.  I spent the first year of my life screaming with colic, and then talked nonstop ever since!  I don’t know how they managed to make it to the who I am today….big mouth and all!

My smiles look pretty similar, then and now, except I have a few more teeth today :)

Versatile? Me?

I am honored to receive two more awards (again they come in two’s don't get it!).  Both of them were “versatile” awards, these are the second and third versatile awards I’ve received.  Since I wasn’t 100% sure on the definition, I thought I out to check the definition – you know, just to make sure it’s a good thing to be! 

Versatile: capable of or adapted for turning easily from one to another of various tasks, fields of endeavor, etc.: a versatile writer.

Hmmm…..I always thought I was more of a boring mediocre writer.  I don’t write about exciting things, let’s face it, what I right about is boring!  I don’t understand why others find it entertaining!  My blog is just my daily every day life…nothing extreme or overly exciting…just me, mediocre  me, nothing more, nothing less! 

With that being said, I feel BEYOND honored to be considered a Versatile blogger in the eyes of several of my readers.  I love that you can get past my mediocre-ess and enjoy my blog and my writing!  I’m a very lucky writer!

BIG THANK YOU, to Emily of Family and Life in Las Vegas for passing these awards on to me!!  I greatly appreciate it!!  Emily’s blog is anything BUT mediocre, definitely check it out!!



 Now the fun part of awards, passing them along to other blogs!!  In no particular order, seven blogs that I find are not mediocre and yet FABULOUS and extremely VERSATILE!

  • A Belle, A Bean and a Chicago Dog ~ Blogs about her life with her two adorable little girls!  Liz has been a great helping me become a better blogger!
  • Taming Insanity ~ I wish I had a award to give her for the BEST titles for her blog posts!!  They are always so witty and spot on! 
  • Mommy of a Monster (& Toddler Twins) ~ Fun blog about a mama trying to survive three small kids!  I totally relate with her, since she has twin girls – or ladies as she calls them!
  • Old Tweener ~ I think Sherri is my #1 commenter!  She is awesome and I love her blog tagline “Between Changing Diapers and Wearing Them!”
  • Kludgy Mom ~ She is hosting an AWESOME 6 week blogging course, Back To School, Back To Blogging!  I can’t wait for it to start!!
  • Mama’s Losin’ It ~ The one and only Queen of the world renowned Writer’s Workshop!
  • View From Down Here ~ This lady is getting married in less then a month!  Love following her journey towards her wedding day!!

Getting To Know You, Getting To Know All About You

Who doesn’t just love a good musical???!!!  I know I do!  I’m a big musical girl my “older” favorites include Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Rogers & Hammerstein's Cinderella, Singing In the Rain, Meet Me In Saint Louis and OOOO-Klahoma (aren’t you singing along too!?). The “newer” musicals I enjoy are GREASE and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat!  I love me a good musical!  *SIGH*
Anyway, that’s totally off subject!  Tonight, I’m linking up and participating in ….
Getting to know YOU
So here I go…..

1. If you could host a Reality TV show, which one would it be?
Hmmm, that’s a toss up!  I’d love to host Survivor, because while everyone else is suffering I could partake in the show, without the camping part or the lack of cleanliness :)


The Amazing Race, I’d love to travel to the different places they go!

2. Do you put your seatbelt on before or after you start the car?
Hmmm….I almost have to go and sit in the car to see what I do.  I’m pretty sure I belt up before I turn the car on – or do it as I’m turning the car on!

3. Shave or hair removal cream?
Shave my legs, wax my eyebrows!

4. What's your favorite feature in a house?
WINDOWS!  Boring, I know, but a home would be quite boring and dark without the windows, don’t ya think?
5. What is your favorite "Fall" scent?
Toss up between Apple Cider and the smell of Fog/Mist!

6. What tv show are you looking forward to seeing the most this Fall??
Survivor for sure!  Trying to remind myself that it’s now on Wednesday night!  Can’t wait for the premiere on September 15th! 

7. Personal Shopper or Personal Chef?
Personal shopper hands down!  I love to shop and hate to cook!

8. What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of "Fall"?
Halloween!  But also cooler days, leaves changing colors and crunching under your feet.  One of my favorite times of the year!

[FYI: if the song in my title is stuck in your head and you can’t place the musical….it’s from Rogers and Hammerstein's 1951 hit, The King and I, another fantastic musical!]

Triplet Love!

They were asked to go sit by the front door so we could go outside to play.  I was shocked when I walked around the corner to actually see them SITTING by the door!  Happy at that!  It’s a miracle I tell ya!

Sorry, for the bad quality in the photo it was taken on my phone!

Back To School, Back To Blogging Event

I missed the boat in participating in the 31 days to a better blog event this summer.  Somehow I missed when the registration was going on, I was a bit bummed.  But at the same time I knew that summer is a crazy time to be participating in such a time-consuming event.  Still, I wanted to learn as much as I could about blogging and the blogosphere!  Today, when I was doing my daily blog-hopping I came across Kludgy Mom’s blog and she is hosting her own challenge/event/class to better your blog – Back To School, Back To Blogging!


According to Kludgy Mom’s blog:

What Is It? It’s called Back to School, Back to Blogging (or, B2S/B2B) It’s for anyone who wants to improve their blog. Kids go back to school, we go back to blogging. I hope to make this program:

FUN – because blogging should be!

EASY – because I don’t have time to do a blog task EVERY day. And you might not, either.

FREE - because money is tight and most of us aren’t making a red cent blogging.

INCLUSIVE – because everyone can improve their blog!

It will run for six weeks from September 12 – October 22.  If you are interested in participating in Kludgy Mom’s Back To School, Back To Blogging event, go to and sign-up!

I cannot wait to get started!!  Hope I “see” you back at school on September 12th!

iPhone Luv!

I can’t believe I didn’t blog about this sooner!  I’ve only been waiting for this day for months now!  I am now the proud owner of an iPhone 3Gs.  My two year contract with T-Mobile was finally up, as was the life on my beloved Blackberry!  I loved my Blackberry, so I was a bit hesitant.  However, after talking to many people I made the big jump from Blackberry to iPhone and from T-Mobile to AT&T – let’s just say I haven’t looked back since!  I’m still learning how to use the phone, but am loving every minute of it!


You might ask why the 3Gs and not the new 4G?  I did a lot of research into both, and learned that the 4G is still having kinks worked out of it.  While those kinks can be fixed, it’s still so new that more problems may come up.  Whereas the 3Gs has been around long enough to have all the kinks worked out of it (I think).  This phone has also already been updated to the new operating system that the 4G runs on!

Another big reason was I got a heck of a deal from my cousin on his!  I ended up buying this from my cousin who’d only had a it a couple of months and it’s in pristine condition.  He wanted the new 4G iPhone (to which last I heard he wasn’t sure if he was happy with it – sorry dude a deals a deal!) I couldn’t pass up the deal and took it!  I then ran out to the mall and bought a new cover for it!  Loved this one when I saw it, so different from my normal choice of pink, love it though!!

Needless to say, I’m loving my phone!  I’ve become addicted to Words with Friends and have several games going on right now!  Words with Friends is just Scrabble, but you can play against your friends!  If you haven’t tried out Words with Friends, you definitely need to check it out.  I play with the free app, so check it out!  Leave me a comment (with your Words with Friends username and email) if you want to play me!  I’m always looking for new friends to play!

Willis Tucker Spray Pad

On Monday we had another BEAUTIFUL day here in Seattle!  I had the day off, so Jaime invited me to go with the girls and her to the Willis Tucker Spray Pad in Snohomish.  Neither of us had gone before, so we weren’t exactly sure what to expect.  But no big surprise, we all had FUN!  Lots of water go go around and stay cool!

Don’t get wet!

Emmalee wasn’t so sure about it at first!

Once I got wet, she decided to join in!

IMG_4526IMG_4529IMG_4530Cute bum shot!

So much concentration!

This place was fun, we had a good afternoon, enjoyed the water and the weather!  If you live in the area, you should check it out!  I highly recommend it!
