I'm traveling for work all next week. I go to Baltimore tomorrow, then Boston on Thursday. I'll get home next weekend. So tonight - mega packing because of course I haven't done any yet Smile

That is a lot of traveling! What do you do when you travel? Do you see other companies or just other branches of your company?

Tonight I'm making a dessert. Tomorrow morning we are helping Carrie move. Tomorrow night we are having a dinner for my mom's bday at my house. Sunday I am having an Arbonne party at my house.

Busy weekend.

Sleep? LOL

Tomorrow Zayden starts a new swim class, hes been swimming since 6 months but his pool shut down on Memorial day because of a bunch of reasons, mostly political between the owner and the city, and has never reopened. We kept waiting but now found different lessons at the YMCA so he starts those tomorrow.

DH is on call this weekend so can't do much. I need to start cleaning out the garage and going through our freezer to get rid of meat from, well maybe 2009? LOL

We're going to a PBS Fun Fest tomorrow. Other than that no plans. Ava has been asking to go swimming, so we might do that on Sunday.

Kim: that ship looks like fun! if you get the pirate gear, share the pics!

Jenn: What dessert are you making? Happy bday to your mom, and take it easy when you help Carrie move. You're pg, ya know :p.
My travel is random, as needed. This time, it's coincidental that I have 2 different mtgs next week. I'm going to a professional conference in Baltimore, Mon-Wed, so that's not specific to my company. Then, I have a 1-day work meeting in Boston on Thurs. I'm part of small technical group at our company, and the group consists of staff across all branches. We are meeting in Boston to discuss our project. Considering I'm in CA, I'm glad that the Boston trip got scheduled for the day after my conference ends, so I'm simply taking a short flight from Baltimore to Boston, rather than doing two separate coast-to-coast trips.

Amber: what's a PBS fun fest??? We are big PBS fans here.

Shelly - tell Carrie that - she's a whip cracker Smile Oh I see, that's kind of cool you guys all get together in person to discuss projects. That's why I travel one day a month too. I hate conference calls and video calls so traveling works for us. However, I opted out of any more traveling - last time it was hard on me and it was a short 45 minute flight.

I'm making a cheesecake. It will be my first time to make one so hopefully it turns out ok.

Just had a newborn session. Little angel slept pretty much the whole time, so I have a ton to edit, yay! DH is away for a while because of lightening threats in the mountains. It's going to be hot this weekend! So we'll probably swim, hang out inside, and I'll try to edit!

Not too much planned here, finally! Can finally take a breather after prepping for and then moving! Have fun Carrie and Jenn! :rolleyes:
Jenn, don't forget to put the cheesecake in a water bath in the oven so it doesn't crack while it cooks--prevents drying out.

I'm not too sure. This will be our first time going. It looks like just a big festival on of our local PBS stations is puting on. Clifford and Curious George will be there. Ava's really into both those books (and the cartoons too since Ashley pointed out they had cartoons of them) so I think she'll have a great time meeting them. Smile

Lyla got to test in to the older class at gymnastics, and she passed! I'm so excited for her, and she will enjoy the challenge. Lyla was getting a little bored with the parent tot class She looked really small sitting with the 3-5 year olds.

Tomorrow we are going out of town to a bigger zoo and doing some shopping.

Sunday we have no plans

Kristen, so cute! I'm buying a doll bed for LO so we can do newborn photos on it. I love the coke crate at the little headband.

Kristen- Those are SO cute!!! The crate on is my favorite! Can you photoshop my kiddos in there for me? Wink Who was your client? Is your new website helping you get business? Where are you shooting at? Do you have a little studio at home?

Jenn- how did your cheesecake turn out?

Delicious but ugly! When I pulled it out my SIL busted out laughing. But everyone was begging for seconds. I made home made whipped cream and bought the can of cherry topping. Yum!

Despite my reputation for "whip-cracking", I did take it somewhat easy on preggo Wink I made her put some shelf liner in my kitchen (fantastic job, BTW, JP) and she watched Layla for a while, which I know she enjoyed every single minute of, since she got a break from her own child only to be stuck with mine. Blum 3

Well, you all know what I did this weekend. I feel like I got hit by a truck this morning. We are about 95% moved, thanks to Jenn and Justin and a few other friends. We still have some miscellaneous crap at the old house, and lots of cleaning to do over there. Then of course weeks and weeks worth of unpacking at the new house. I got enough unpacked yesterday to get us started on this work week, and that's about it.

Oh, and unfortunately, someone beat us to the new house. Sugar ants. We have them all over the kitchen and some other places in the house also. An exterminator came yesterday but so far the ants I'm seeing are still running like they are on crack, not dying like they have been poisoned. I'm hoping they mysteriously disappear this week because I don't feel like unpacking my kitchen when it's full of ants. YUCK. :puke2: They were even in Layla's carseat yesterday when I went to put her in it! Why oh why did God make bugs?? I could totally do without them :rolleyes:

Carrie- Please share pictures of the new place! I can't wait to see it! and Yuck for the sugar ants! Ants are difficult to get rid off.

I took pics of it when it was empty, I just need to get them off my camera. I'll try to post them this week for sure! Then in a few weeks I'll post the "after" pics, once we get some semblance of order around there. Biggrin

Oh, and I forgot to mention the grossest part, I DRANK some ants on Saturday because they somehow made it into my gatorade, which I did not realize until I had drank a big cup of it. Of course my husband was like "what's the big deal, it's just extra protein" By that point I was so tired I almost didn't care, normally I would have probably run to the bathroom and made myself :puke2:
