Mother's Day, Temporary Tattoos & Fred

Happy Friday, minions!  I'm so glad the week is over.  I've been ridiculously busy doing to many things at one time.  Staying focused on writing is my challenge of late.  When I'm overwhelmed with tasks, I try to create lists, but then the lists overwhelm me too.  Damn.  See my dilemma?

Happy Mother's Day!
Anyway before I forget, Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!  I hope you rest and enjoy your weekend!  Do you have any plans this weekend?  Brunch, book reading or a family barbecue?  I'm a mother of two adorable hellions, I know we have BIG plans this weekend including sleep overs, water parks and maybe a barbecue.  There is never a dull moment in my home and I wouldn't have it any other way.
  
Temporary Tattoos
A-Z Challenge, Survivor Badge
Today I wanted to share with you this cool craft you can do with your kids this weekend or over the summer.  My kids and I will be creating temporary tattoos, so I'm super excited about that.  The kids will do their normal imagery i.e. skulls and bones, princess tiaras--maybe the mom tattoo above. (doubtful)  If you're interested, check out this easy peasy video:  DIY how to make a temporary tattoo.  Who knew if could be this easy?  Guess which image I'll be doing?  You guessed it--my A-Z Survivor Badge.  Hopefully it will look good.  We'll see.  I'll post pix if it rocks!


Friday's with Fred  
I consider Fred one of my kids too.  He's been with me for 12 years!  Love him.  Last week we took him to the vet for shots.  It wasn't fun for Fred, but he needed it.  Don't feel bad for him, though.  As you can see, he got one fat, meaty bone as a reward!

Off my white carpet, Fred!
Be sure and stop by and visit Schatze over at Mary’s BookHounds too.

Have a great weekend.

I tried making lists. Just means I'm less likely to do what's on the list.
Happy Mother's Day and have fun at the water park!

I took my little guy to the local ice cream place. I'm hoping to see Avengers with my older kids on Sunday.

I will definitely check out the temporary tattoo link!

There have been some Mother's Days where my gift was the husband took the kids out for the day so I could write, uninterrupted.

But I got that last weekend, so this Sunday I suppose I'll actually spend the day with my kids, lol.

Looks like Fred got a pretty good reward for his pain. lol

No plans for Sunday, no mom and no kids so you can do it up good for me too.

Temp tattoos sound neat, I'll have to check that out!

Instead of writing out lists I just try to keep them in my head and then I inevitably forget something. My wife sometimes writes out lists for me...haha. That picture of Schatze looks viscous. Stay away from my bone!
