Fire Alarm / Just granny cooking πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

Happy Sunday

The fun thing about St Pattys Day is everywhere you go you see people in green. The Bank…. the drive thru teller had a headband with green Antena’a sticking out with green pompom balls. Kroger the whole place was covered in green. Staff, shoppers, heck you couldn’t even figure out who worked there and who was shopping. But the biggest kicker was the gym, yes I had a green t-shirt on, yes it said ” kiss me I’m Irish πŸ€ ” lol but there was a guy in there that looked like he was going straight to a party after his workout. Green beaded necklace, green leg tights with green shorts πŸ€”πŸ€” , and a green St Pattys shirt, but he also had a green and orange stripe tie!!! And he was on the elliptical. His tie was flapping all over the place. If he had a hat on, he could have won best dress forsure!!!!

How cool to see people having funπŸ’š

On another note….. here’s how our Sunday morning went……

woke up next to Dino, he crawled in sometime early morning, his mother is working today. So after getting up and about. We decided to make Uncle Trevor his brownies he’s been crying about all week. Got them cooking , Dino had been coughing all morning so I gave him his medicine. The main mate decided to make breakfast pizza and asked me to cook the sausage, while he ran to get the rest of the stuff from the store, got that going. Well , next thing you know the fire alarm is going off and I can’t get it to shut off!!!! It’s freakin loud!

Ok , do the visual…. sausage frying, brownies baking, house is now a little smokey. No one!!!

Not one castle member even opened their bedroom door. Ranger was running around all crazy barking, Heni is hiding behind the couch!!!Ugh!!!

This went on for a little while lol

So I open all the windows, alarm finally stops, main mate walks in, has no clue what even what down. Sooo I start thinking πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” is Stin sleeping with headphones 🎧 , what is his status. Because when the alarms go off, some voice on the upstairs alarm actually talks and says ” fire, πŸ”₯ πŸ”₯ fire πŸ”₯ ” and is super loud!!!

So I venture upstairs to see what the Stin status is…….. πŸ™„ no Stin. Guess he decided to not return to the castle last night😑 which is fine , but I just like to know if your not coming home .

Dino is meanwhile almost asleep on the couch, I’m wondering why???? He could care a less about all the noiseπŸ€”

Come to find out I gave him the night time cough medicine!!! Omg!!! I’m a train wreck this morning!!!!!

Then we had to get ready for gymnastics, Dino goes on Sunday and granny’s taking him. And he’s not coughing any more but super 😴 tired.

Carter meanwhile slept thru the whole smoke alarm, not a word from him. Actually I didn’t even see carter until later in the day, he had no clue about my crazy morning!!!

But on a good note, breakfast pizza was a success and Trevor will be surprised today with his brownies. All is good!

Gymnastics went well, he was very tired, came home and slept for 2 hours😳😳😳😳😳. Had to tell Ashley about the medicine mishap, but it really worked out for the best , he rested, not coughed and felt like a gem when he got up. Princess Grannys got it going on!!!!! No I do not drug my kids, even tho it crossed my mind maybe a few times.

So funny, and I see this shit happening daily🀣 πŸ‘†πŸΌ

Enjoying the beautiful day, taking a walk with the dogs! Life is good

great weekend, back to Monday 😑, but getting closer to a much needed vacation πŸ˜€

Goodnight πŸ’€ to all, until tomorrow xoxo 😘

PS. The blonde family loved the brownies


Happy St Patrick’s Day ☘️

Last night we wore the green and went to airtime trampoline for the St Pattys party πŸŽ‰

Super fun, super loud, super crowded. Everything that makes a great party!

Megan pulling off her sweet flips! Lover and her stylish jumps

The 3 grandsons having a ball!

And now on to the actual Saturday St Pattys DayπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š

The leprechaun destroyed our house , we set up a trap to catch the little bastard and failed.

even the milk ( almond soy stuff) was green, Dino is slightly freaked out. Possibly because Uncle Carter keeps telling him his probably still here hiding on him 🀣

What a fun tradition to start with him. Lover and carter did a great job putting it all together πŸ’š

All decked out in green, heading out for the evening! Have a lots of corn beef, drinks, and Irish πŸ€ fun! Happy St Pattys Day to all!

Goodnight πŸŒ™πŸ’€πŸ˜΄ until tomorrow, xoxo 😘



It’s the first time in years that we are not getting our spirit wear ready for some baseball with Carter.

We are not going to tryouts, we did not go to winter baseball training camps, we did not hit up a hitting clinic 😞☹️😟

What does Spring mean to us ???? Baseball ⚾️

The little pitcher❀

Does this make me sad without the traveling fun, the mom friends we make, the crazy stuff that goes down at a game. Oh and we all get so involved. Yelling , wearing all our spirit wear etc. Yes, very sad 😰

The catcher❀

We sat thru rain, snow, wind storms, and 100 plus degrees. We’ve had injuries all the way, arms, elbows from pitching. Possibly a heat stroke while catching in a tournament.

The umpire ❀🀣🀣🀣 all he wanted to do was Toss an obnoxious parent out of the game ( at least that’s what he said to us ) lol, he never did !

The blonde team❀🀣❀🀣❀🀣❀🀣❀🀣❀

A baseball players dream!!! Cooperstown ⚾️

The injured❀

The Lover❀

team of the day with the Detroit Tigers❀

We’ve traveled to quite a few places. Cooperstown was an amazing experience for Carter, his team and even us ( his family) . That was the Ultimate baseball ⚾️ experience. The team was an extremely close fun team, they lived the dream at a baseball park for a week. New York hosts the Cooperstown stadium. The whole team dyed their hair platinum blonde. So much fun.

Then he moved on to high school baseball ⚾️, while still playing travel, so life was even crazier. Double header games all week long. The tournaments on the weekend. It was a busy time. But boy do I miss it!

It all goes by so fast , Carters doing awesome, enjoying college, he’s huge into finance, day trading ,stocks, marketing and banking ( and Lover🀣) Does he miss baseball ⚾️??? Yes , but he’s also all about getting an education and being successful , making money, working out. And hanging out. I do feel like baseball gave him lots of great qualities. Confidence, determination, hard work, dedication and The ability to make smart choices ( at such a hard age)

So proud of you carter, keep us the great work!!!

Oh and don’t worry about his fan club, grandson Jace ( one of the blondes) starts t-ball in April. And I’m sure the whole fan club will be there, with all new spirit wear❀⚾️🀣

Oh, heck granny will probably even be at the practices. After all carter has him running bases in the castle ( don’t tell main mate πŸ€£πŸ˜‚)

Love the sport! Kids grow up way to quick! Enjoy it all while you can πŸ’œ

Good night to all, until tomorrow , xoxoxo



Vacation Planning 🏝 πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

When your so excited to get out of town and go on vacation. And your sister surprises you with a sweet ass new tropical shirt! So funny πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Fort Desoto Florida stud! Dino was so excited to give uncle Carter his new shirt, because it has Mauna on it🀣❀

I’ve been bugging carter to get his summer clothes together, his reply is….. ok, I’m good . Wtf kind of reply is that???? Do you need shorts? Bathing suit? Sandals? Anything????? His next reply …… yeah…. fishing 🎣 gear!!!!

That’s honestly all he’s gotten together, I know we have time to throw stuff together. But I was trying to get him ready.

He will be riding down with Trevor & Victoria, sitting between the blondes🀣🀣, it will be a long drive. Jace is super excited. He has his whole trip planned. Which includes tons on movies on his IPad, he plans on binge watching ” THE BOSS BABY”his latest favorite movie. Carter prepare yourself. I think I know half the movie by heart myself. It is a cute movie .

But they plan on driving straight thru. They will be fine, they are young and have 3 people to pull driving shifts.

Trevor called Carter the other night . His family went on a little road trip to pick up stuff, the boys were being wild πŸ˜†, and loud, there was so much happening in Trevor’s truck.

Trevor wanted to give carter a little preview of what’s to come on the road trip😳😳🀣🀣🀣🀣

I say just bring headphones, I personally think all people in the back seats should wear them! How perfect would that be??? I’ll have to run that by Victoria πŸ‘πŸ»

So I asked Trevor if he had room to bring my mountain bike with him. His reply… problem , he will fit it in. Should I be concerned???

Just kidding. But I know they are going to be packed to the max in their truck. Plus pulling a fishing boat, kayak and my bike somewhere in the long haul. 😬😬

Possibly this look☝🏼

But better not be this lookπŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ

Not sure WTH is happening in that photoπŸ‘†πŸΌ.

Here’s a funny one for you all, Stin bought some book used, not even sure the name of the book. Well, I keep finding these family pictures displayed all over the house. A cute looking family, definitely older photos . But everyone who walks thru our door asks? Who are the people? Yes, they think they are our family . We’ve even answered ” Stins cousins ” when asked . I thought about posting some online to see if they wanted them back , but hate to display them without knowing them. They look like they are on vacation in some.

Well it’s Thursday.

So here’s a few throwbacks for you all

Baby Trevor !!! Wow! Looks like Weston❀

Stin and Carter Florida 2012 , yep I’m sure they were not allowed in the life guard deck🀣

Carter’s previous status, and will be current status in 2 weeks❀

Throwback beach babes❀❀

Enjoy your evening

Goodnight to all, until tomorrow xoxo 😘


Therapy evaluation πŸ™ƒ

Over the snow, ready for spring. Ready to not have to start my car early to warm up.

But the snow keeps frickin coming!!! πŸ˜‘ ugh!!!

Today is Wednesday, should it be wacky Wednesday? Wino Wednesday? Workout Wednesday? I’m thinking the wacky might hit the spot. Then after my wacky day , I’ll make it workout Wednesday and finish it off with wine 🍷 down Wednesday.

Ashley, yes vegan ashley is in college for PTA ( physical therapy assistant) she has one year left, loves the program. Well every night she comes home and we are her family case loads.

Last night she evaluated the way we walk. I personally thought my walk was ok, NOPE , it’s not ok, but I learned the proper way to walk.

This is totally Ashley ☝🏼 you can never stretch too much 😬. And not many castle members are stretchersπŸ˜–

I realize no one walks perfect, but it’s interesting to see the difference in the way people walk. Something you never would have ever noticed.

Stin …… πŸ‘ŽπŸΌ your walk was not correct. Yes, it’s because your tall. But you failed along with the rest of us. Lol . He actually had the best walk according to our therapist Ashley .

But the main mate’s 😳😳😳😳😳 walk was very jacked up. He had us laughing so hard during his evaluation. He has flat feet, you would never know, but he pointed it out, and blamed all his walking issues on that🀣🀣🀣

But it all made sense what she was teaching us and showing us. It’s been a great experience for us learning to improve our stretching, and strength, for just walking.

I feel like we get evaluated a few times a week. And so far we’ve failed them all🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

Tomorrow when I get to work I’m going to strut thru those Surgery Center doors in my new proper walk, body position etc. And see how it goes πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ And when I hit the gym after work, I’ll be running with my new and improved body.

I doubt my body will be New and improved but it will probably help me in the long run. It’s funny how just a little bit of knowledge and a tiny change might make my workout not as sore. We shall see!


Victoria let the blondes pick out their shades for Florida 😎

Weston got these, love them , Trevor was slightly bugged out that they looked girly. Who cares, they look adorable Weston. And he loved them that’s all that counts.

And Jace ….. duh, picks out BATMAN shades. Because he’s either batman or the Green Ninjango . Sweet shades Jace, youare going to look awesome rockin those 😎

Just seeing them in their shades makes me soooo excited to get away for vacation!!!! I’m not bragging , just happy to step out of the daily ruckus and chill!!! Well not actually chill, lol. πŸŒžπŸ‘™πŸ•ΆπŸ πŸŒ΄πŸŠβ€β™€οΈπŸ„β€β™€οΈπŸš΄β€β™€οΈβœˆοΈβ›±πŸ

Happy PI(e) Day

Enjoy your pie, πŸ• pizza pie, or how ever you celebrate this day. If you even celebrate it at all.

Goodnight 😴 to all, until tomorrow xoxo 😘


Savage Tan? 🌞

To tan or bare the white body????

Going on vacation, do you pre tan ? Get a little base so you don’t fry???? Or battle it with sun block and pray for the best???

I’m an 80’s chick so we’ve been tan almost our whole life. I’m pretty sure my generation came out of the womb tan. We were the product of the tanning beds, I even worked at a tanning salon in high school. And it was the happening job, everyone went there. No one worried about their skin. We just worried if our skin was tan. And not just tan , it had to be the ” savage tan”

Then as we aged we started to cover up a bit, still had a tan, just not as dark. Then as we had kids, are kids were head to toe in sunblock. Not an ounce of color on their sunless bodies.

Here’s an 80’s chick for sure☝🏼☝🏼


And we all thought we were soooo sweet with our tans. Don’t get me wrong, I love a tan. But also trying to preserve my skin just a little ❀

Then as we aged even more 😑😑😑, we ( well at least I do) try to get a little color but sunblock the face. Gotta watch now for wrinkles. Yes, aging sucks but we all do it.

So that leaves me back to the big question??? Should I go for just a base tan??? A spray tan??? Plus, don’t you all agree every one looks better with a little color!!!

So as I battle this tanning dilemma. I do know I will get some sort of color before I go. We’ve all been sunburn and it really sucks. It’s like throwing 2 vacation days out the window. And I know we will be outside pretty much our whole trip , including meals, minus sleeping.

Honestly who goes down to Florida from Michigan to eat inside??? We take full advantage of the nice weather. We kinda unplug, no tv at least . But still have iPads/ phones etc. Wait…….. I guess we really aren’t unplugging 🀣🀣🀣🀣 you pretty much have whatever you need on an iPad nowadays.

So this was tanning Tuesday??? Yeah or nay???

Thanks for listening

Goodnight πŸ˜΄πŸ’€ to all until tomorrow xoxo 😘


Haircut lineup


Today is the big hair cut day, actually a big hair cut day for quite a few people I know. Victoria is coming over for spring haircuts. Carter better be in that lineup of people. He needs to freshen up his do. He’s starting to look a little unkept 😑.

I think she’s cutting both the blondes, definitely DINO, G-ma, P-Dog, Carter, and I really wish the main mate could be in their to spruce up his look.

So hoping to come home to some stylish hair do’s today!!


I’m thinking the party has begun, just got some pictures. Carter better be there somewhere getting the fancy haircut

I cAn only imagine the volume that is happening at this moment.

Before being groomed 🀣🀣🀣Dino’s looks cut in this picture, it’s not crazy here, and looks shorter.

So fancy nowπŸ‘‡πŸΌ

3 handsome boys, how big of pile of hair was on the floor,because Dino had quite a mound. Very cute❀❀❀

Jace looks so much older now, Weston’s hair has a permanent spike to it, which makes him look like Trevor’s twin. Makes me wonder what the new little baby will look like???? Remember mom has red hair. How adorable would a little red headed baby be❀❀❀

So I’ve texted carter all day, no reply 😑 am I even surprised???? No , but slightly pissed. Wanted to know if he got his haircut? No reply

But then I get his MVP-Investor updated website on today’s trading and noticed he did make the cut!!!!!πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Yes!!! Fancy man!!! Check out his u-tube channel and check out his haircut😍

It’s hard , working and keeping up on all the happenings that go down at the castle, but I’m thinking today was a successfulday!

Goodnight to all, until tomorrow xoxo 😘
