Spring those Butts Forward🌻

Spring forward……. hope everyone changed those clocks.

The funny thing is about ” spring forward ” it’s freezing outside this morning, and the lake has refroze. Not that it’s safe, but there is a sheet of glass covering it. Pure Michigan

Back in the day I was working Labor and delivery midnight shift. Time changed sucked!!! And extra hour felt like a full shift🀣🀣🀣 not only are you dying tired, that extra hour takes forever. Some people loved it! Extra hour on the books πŸ’° .

Never ☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼🀣

The gym is my escape from everyone/everything


What’s happening on this Sunday???

Florida fishing kayak prep is going on in full force in the garage . Carter your kayak looks sweet, love all the rod holders .


Well I woke up to my Sunday morning fishing show πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ. Fishing shows play quite a bit on different castle TV’s. With Carter & Trevor planning their Florida fishing trip, you can never talk about toooo much fishing 🎣. Don’t get me wrong fishing is fun, especially on the big water. Salmon fishing with the guys on Lake Michigan in Trevor’s big boat is super sweet. Charter fishing in Florida is super sweet. But I’ve been in a boat on a lake for hours and never lost my worm , that sucks bad!!! I do not have patience for that .

So I just came home to this ……..

Ashley straighten Dinos hair , the big haircut is tomorrow. I’m dying πŸ˜†.

It looks like he has a wig on , wait maybe he does 🀣

A few before the cut pictures. I really do love his hair, but it’s gotten so long and it’s no longer controllable.

Even the headband could not help it out!🀣🀣

Mexican dinner tonight, no granny is not cooking a Mexican feast . The main mate is going to El Patio to pick up carry out for the crew.

The big pick is El Patio or Mexican Lindo????

Both not to far from each other. I’m not a big fan of either. But the castle members pick EL PATIO . Chips and salsa πŸ’ƒ heaven


I hit up Old Navy again And it was successful! Got a beach cover up, 2 pair of shorts and a bikini bottom, no top 🀣🀣🀣🀣.

My wardrobe is complete πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜Ή

Well it was a great weekend, Saturday was awesome and lots of Sunday laughs.

Goodnight to all, until tomorrow, xoxo


EGG specular DAY πŸ£πŸ°

Party night!

We’ve got 72 eggs boiling on the stove this morning. Tables being lined up and looking to borrow chairs.

Lover surprised me with a ” Galaxy egg kit” the kids are going to love it, after all we have a solar system in the other room.

Boiling eggs, there are so many ways to boil a freakin egg. I grew up were you put them in a pot of water and boiled away. Now you can” add a pinch ” of salt, boil for 1 minute, then cover them and let them sit for 17 minutes and you get the perfect egg.

We are trying the 17 minute recipe. Definitely setting a timer, because anyone that knows me 😳😳!!!!! Knows those eggs will be long forgotten.

Dino was watching ” checking on the Easter eggs all morning”

super successful day!

We had soooo many eggs to decorate, a great dinner! Lots of fun

Putting the egg inside the plastic bag ( sandwich bags work awesome) and even using food dye works great ! The eggs were super cool looking .

Even Trevor got involved in the fun ❀

Carter and Jace playing the bunny catch game .

My beautiful Victoria , and her adorable baby bump .

After a full fun day, we are ready to retire. Movie time, relaxing

Goodnight 😴 to all , until tomorrow, xoxo

Thank you for making it a family fun day! Love you all


Friday fun has begun🐣

Hoping for a family fun weekend. our metallic egg goal ☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼

Plan on Easter 🐣 egg decorating. We’re not doing the typical egg dying this year πŸ˜†. We bought the deluxe kits this year. Granny stepped it up a notch !!!! We have some painting egg decorating kit , that comes with a paint roller, paint brushes, a metallic egg dying kit. We are trying to make the golden egg! And we did get the standard dip kit. The one that you leave the egg in the cup with the vinegar , and get the deepest color possible. But I think I’m going back to get the tye-dying kit also. Yes, we will be doing a ton of boiled eggs. But each family takes home a dozen or more eggs with them.

this might be a little advance for the castle members, Lover can you make these☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼

We just need everyone to be healthy this weekend. So we need little Weston ❀ better.

This is more like our eggs??? ☝🏼

We usually do our eggs a little closer to Easter, but we are all going to get our VACATION πŸ˜€ on , so doing eggs early. Can you tell how excited I am to get out of here!!!!! Vacation status for castle members:

Granny ✈️ & Carter ( what!!! No Lover 😭) Florida bound 🌴🎣

Blondes and parents 🌴🎣🌞 Florida bound

Ashley & Dino holding down the castle, dogs etc

Stin not quite sure ???????

Lover …. Mexico πŸ‡²πŸ‡½ , Carter withdraw for sure😩, but they both will survive and both have fun! Thank u god for FaceTime πŸ‘πŸ»

Main mate…. wish he would join the Florida crew! ( not) lol just kidding

It’s Friday friends!!!! Let’s get thru this work day , and let the festivities he’s begin πŸŽ‰

Here’s an interesting observation I had this morning

Sitting at the gas station, pretty early. When I left I heard Stins alarm ringing. He must have been in a hurry , because all of a sudden I see his little truck go flying by.

It was one of those times that , if you ever wondered how your kids drive or act when you’re not around. I just found out. He drove pass me like a mad man! Possibly late for work😩 not sure what he had going on. He went by so quick , I’m wondering if that was even him????

I also discovered another way to make money. Just wash the main mates jeans. I’m now up $12, yep found in the dryer. Loving my new job LOL

Well everyone have a great TGIF evening,

goodnight to all , until tomorrow, xoxo 😘


Little Things we all seem to do? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

First things first…..

Happy International women’s day!

To all you great women out there😘

It’s so nice to have our day ❀


Why is it that here I work out every day, literally run on a treadmill and love it. But today when I got to the gym , I realized I left my running shoes in the jeep , i’m completely put out. Don’t feel like going to the car to get them. Mad I left them in there. 🀣🀣🀣🀣🀣

Super jacked up parking, hoping they are friends playing a joke on each other☝🏼😳


Well , I did run out there , grab the shoes and wasn’t delayed that long . But that’s just like , why do people try to get the closest parking spot to the door at the gym. Your at the gym , a few extra steps won’t hurt if you find a parking spot not right by the door . But I tend to do that also , except I park to the side usually by the same cars daily, is that only my parking spot??? No of course not, but am I mad if I can’t park there???? Possibly YES!!!

I think we all do that with different things . Headphones 🎧 ???? Yes I’ll run back to the car for them. What about phones??? If you left your phone at home would you turn around for it???? Majority people would. 88% would go get that phone πŸ“±


But only 40% of people would turn around for their drivers license, or purse. Where are our priorities people!!!


What about pumping gas??? How low does your tank go?? I’ll get gas before quarter of tank . Always start Sunday evening with a full tank. I think some of my mates let their tanks run quite low, possibly with the gas light on, and talk about now they need gas for 2 days. Sorry , I don’t work like that , just go get the gas⛽️.

Weston’s School day

Weston celebrates Dr. Seuss day. With green eggs & ham

He looks thrilled about those green eggs❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀.

He’s not feeling well, caught the sickness from his brother. Feel better Weston, we love you 😘

3 weeks and this will be our status !!! Can’t wait for a little vacation. Fun in the sun, fishing, beaches , blondes, sand castles, sun block and sunsets

Florida bound# spring break 2018❀Hoping they catch dinner for us. Fishing Ft Desoto#family#cousins🌞🌴🦈 only 3 weeks away🐚

Enjoy your Thursday, goodnight to all, until tomorrow xoxoxo


Happiness is……

Happiness is…………

Waking up to no snow on your jeep, because one of your mates cleaned it off

Waking up to a clean kitchen, no midnight snacking last night!!!❀❀❀❀❀

Waking up to a clean house, seriously did ” Molly Maids” visit during my 😴 sleep

Walking to my jeep with a shoveled path walkway, someone made me the princess πŸ‘ΈπŸΌ today

Laundry folded on the dryer😳

Kitchen table is cluster free

Ok really someone explain……. what’s happening here??? Did I get a new mate last night?? πŸ€”

I checked all rooms and everyone was sleeping, Whoever is responsible for this ….. Thank you!!! You are the best!! But really . When I went to bed everyone was in their places ( bedrooms) , spots, domains, dorms, lofts, upstairs apartment etc.

I should check the other bathroom, but don’t want to be disappointed if it’s all jacked up like usual. So I’m going to just enjoy this beautiful, CLEAN, home I have. Knowing when I get home tonight it might not look the same.


Clean house happiness!!!

I do have to say , when I first walked out of my bedroom…. I thought πŸ€” were we robbed last night? Why is there no shit everywhere? Lol

But really, what would someone steal???🀣🀣🀣 toys? Vegan fruit usually piled high in a basket on the table . Dishes ? Workout stuff??? Dogs? Well maybe cute little Heni, she’s a gem πŸ’Ž

Even the shoes are neatly lined up , and not like 20 pairs , someone put some in the garage because I hate it looking like a shoe store when you walk in the door

I just had another quick thought ?????

Did I get up during the night and deep clean my house? Please tell me no!

It is funny how things make you happy

Yes I would like more money , some romance, a bigger house , some romance, to be able to sleep in , some romance, not work so much, monthly vacations traveling to snowy mountains and tropical beaches , some romance 🀣🀣🀣 , A sweet ass ski/ wakeboard boat, Love my jeep wouldn’t change that , to be able to go to the gym and not be rushed etc. The list could go on and on. Did I mention romance??? 😁 But right now I will settle for my super clean ass house !!! Happiness overloadπŸ˜€πŸ˜

Going to just keep it happy today, maybe I should not answer my phone, ignore my mates 🀣, not going to let anything get in way of my smile today

Happy Wednesday

Goodnight to all, until tomorrow, xoxoxo 😘


Our Family keeps gr❀wing πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ

Tired on this Tuesday morning


Slightly tired this morning. Why???? Wait…no not a Rockin Monday night, no dirty dancing last night, just a tv and bed πŸ‘πŸ»

I binged watched the ” Pitch Perfect” movies! Fat Amy is soooo annoying/ funny, I just kept watching . plus it didn’t help that I got up extra early to stop at Meijer this morning. The thing about shopping early is no one is in the store except employees. Well I was wrong about that….. we had a possible ” hook up ” couple going on in the beer & wine isle. No, I was not picking up alcohol This morning , but I was getting pop, and got to see the ” Tinder Date” in full swing. I guess you could say they were a match. Because they were laughing and the girl was doing the ” giggle “. Yep… that flirty giggle we all do when we flirt. 🀣🀣🀣

They could have been cocktailing it all evening and were there for refills 🍺🍷🍸🍹πŸ₯ƒ

I hoped they Ubered the ride there because they we really in no condition to drive.

Think about it…. if you worked all night at Meijer and when this stuff walks in…..Wow! Makes your long night so much easier to handle. And the dress code they had on was definitely ” date” night . Not sure where they could have gone on a Monday night , but they were into each other so that’s all that mattered🀣

I did say to the cashier ( who looked like he could really use his bed at that time) . I bet you see some interesting people thru out the night??? Oh yeah was his only reply ( yawning)

To be young and pull all nighters again! Lol

Isn’t that the truth☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼☝🏼

πŸŽ‰πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸŽ‰HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY AMAZING COUSIN having fun in the β˜€οΈ sun on your special day with your hubby. Enjoy your vacation and birthday ❀️ love you


Did you know…… the hardest beverage for flight attendants to pour on an airplane is?????? Diet Coke???

Diet Coke

Diet sodas, and especially Diet Coke, are the bane of flight attendants because they’re so much more fizzy than other drinks that it takes a longer time to pour, especially over ice. A passenger request for a glass of Diet Coke can slow down in-flight service to a crawl as the fizzy drink foams up fast and settles down slow, forcing the attendant pouring it to take their time to fill up a glass:

Darn and that is my go to drink on a plane ✈️

Diet Coke is] the most annoying beverage a flight attendant can pour for a passenger in flight, because in the time it takes us to fill one cup, we could have served an entire row of passengers,” Poole wrote. β€œI’ve actually had nightmares about frantically trying to finish a never ending Diet Coke beverage service before landing.”

Wow!! Lots of dislikes on the Diet Coke 😑


Hooray !!! The amazing news is out!!!!!! I’m going to be an Aunt again!!!!! I’m soooo excited 😊

We have new babies coming all year!!!

Cousin due in June πŸ‘ΆπŸΌ

My sisters adorable announcement

Enjoy your evening

Goodnight πŸ’€ to all, until tomorrow. Xoxoxo


Clothes for All

Hello Monday

One thing I have noticed about living with a bunch of adults is…… clothes?????

Everyone just wears each other’s clothes. It seems like a free for all. I looked at Ashley the other dayπŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”ummm nice sweat shirt. Yep, it was mine. Haven’t seen it since it changed ownership. But carter is the best , he will wear anything of anybody’s that could, I repeat Could be clean. He films for his company and I was watching one of his documents with the main mate and he’s wearing the main mates shirtπŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚.

I can be just as bad, I’ll grab a sweatshirt off the dryer not really sure who’s it is. One day I was sporting a sweatshirt and Lover says, I got Carter that same shirt, well of course it WAS Carters shirt she got him.

Another time I was wearing my Kid Rock concert T-Shirt , and Lover literally walked in wearing the same shirt and it was Carter’s. Being the blonde I am, I actually said, hey did someone in your family go to that concert. Same shirt, same day. Matter of fact I haven’t seen that shirt since. 🀣🀣

Socks are fair game, find a match and claim them . Pants you are safe with , no one really steals pants.

Stin is fairly lucky, he’s tall, lean and no one fits into his stuff. Carter might score a shirt every once in a while, but that’s really about it.


Are trip is in full planning mode. I even found a gym not to far in St Petes if I need to escape, always need an escape plan put in place! 🀣

Can’t wait for some fun in the sun. My main mate is staying at the castle along with some other mates, but Carter and I travel well together and are sooooo excited for Florida! πŸŽ£πŸ„β€β™€οΈπŸš€πŸŒžπŸ”₯

Well it’s been a long day , Monday , work , gym and now relaxation time ! Does anyone at the castle ever relax ????

Goodnight to all , until tomorrow , xoxoxox
