Not Me Monday and Things That Must Go!

This weekend, we took our kids to Karaoke in the city. (For those in Utah- Karaoke Cafe in Murray is a non-alcoholic family friendly place to go sing Karaoke. I HIGHLY recommend it. It's an absolute BLAST, really great environment, and it's inexpensive.)

Lilly did NOT literally shake her little hips to EVERY song, she did NOT sing the ENTIRE collection the cafe had of "Taylor Swift"

Singing Katy Perry's "Firework"


Singing Taylor Swift's "Love Story."

Singing Taylor Swift's "Fearless"

More "Fearless"

Scarlet did NOT refuse to sing almost anything except for "Three Little Birds" in the style of Bob Marley.

Mahone did NOT run around the courtyard the entire time, NOR did he flirt with the waitresses.

Mahone singing his favorite: Frank Sinatra's "Fly me to the Moon."

AND....I did NOT forget to bring any diapers for Teague and he did NOT promptly poop in the one he was wearing, so Brandon did NOT have to drive to the closest family dollar and buy a NEW package of diapers, even though we have a brand new package at home already.

Teague, obviously pleased with his dirty-buttness and our having to go fetch him some new ones.

Oh! And I did NOT get Lilly an interview with a talent agent at Star Studios- Can't wait for Friday! Wish us luck!

Grab my button on the right sidebar, and link up with YOUR weekly Things That Must Go!

1. Martyr-Mommies. You know the type- the ones who insist that any mother who is not sacrificing EVERYTHING for her children is neglecting her priorities. Even if said "neglectful" mother has passions and/or hobbies that do NOT interfere with her care for her child, Martyr-Mommies seem to feel that she should find SOME way to fill up that passion with her children so that it IS necessary to abandon it. Martyr-Mommies also tend to have NO hobbies of their own that don't include their children- because, you know, THEY have THEIR priorities straight. Often, Martyr-Mommies over lap with the Mommier-Than-Thou mommies.

2. The seam on my new (read: second hand from Savers for 7.00) American Eagle blue jeans that was cut or sewn wrong and so, as I walk, it slowly rotates until it runs down the FRONT of my shin instead of the SIDE of my calf.

3. 24 hours in a day. I need at least 30.

4. 90 degree weather. It's October. Come on, now. It's time to cool off.

Link up below, friends!!!!!

(Oh- and sorry about the underlined text. Every time I put in photos or a button, all the text goes underlined, and I don't know how to fix it...if you do, let me know.)

Haha- Lacey- yeah, I'm trying to increase my traffic. I thought that was a good way. LOL. I kid, I kid. I think that's when I posted the last one, so this link is conforming. LOL. I figured I'd check it too, after 9:23 and if it's not working, I'll post another one.

See...I am totally on to you! :op It's still not working on my end so I will just link up in the morning. Maybe you're really two hours behind me. IDK.

LOL, I LOVE that Karaoke! Although in our house we just turn on Rock band on the Wii; thus we have the Karaoke experience; but without mommy embarrassing herself infront of a bunch of strangers. lol.

But it is a lot of fun watching the kids do it! Your pictures are great!

1- i am with ya. i love it when people act like because i take a couple hours maybe once every 2-4 weeks and go do something just for me, whether it be alone or with friends, that this means that i dont care enough about my husband and children. i stay at home all day, pretty much every day, i never get a day off so i dont see a problem if i take some time out to do things that i enjoy every now and then. And i couldnt love my family more.

2-that sucks :(

3- heck yeah, imagine what i could acomplish

4- see i am cool with the warm weather, i hate cold and with the cold comes the snow that i hate even more. but i wouldnt mind it being and staying like mid 70's
