How do you decide?

Wow!! I have been looking online at houses for the last few days, ok weeks, maybe even months. LOL Since we are leaving the Military finding that perfect house has become my goal, maybe my new obsession. I don't have a lot of must haves and the Hubbyman only has a few, mainly a big garage to store big boy toys in. Oh and he would like a double sink in the master bath. lol Me on the other hand would like a nice kitchen since that is the one room that I LOVE to be in. I would also like to have a fireplace, why? well because we are moving from Texas to Michigan and I have been spoiled by the weather here. So I dream of all of us sitting around a nice fire. Ok, who am I kidding here. I would LOVE to sit in front of a fire staying warm and having 5 minutes of peace and the smell of a fire burning in a fireplace brings me peace.

The problem with having a fireplace is where these said fireplaces are located within the houses I have looked at. Do you choose to place your television in the wall above the fireplace and risk not only ending up with a stiff neck from constantly looking up or melting your television because I want a real wood burning fireplace?  I think I have found a solution! In all the houses that I have seen there is a corner of the room that would be perfect to place a television in. So I started looking for a corner tv stand Having one of these would totally fix my problem and give me the best of both worlds. I can sit in front of a fire watching my favorite show staying warm while all the white stuff falls down outside.

I love this one, but I think what I like about it which is the pull out drawers would be the one thing that just would not work with the little men of the house.
So I kept looking and found one that I liked equally well and have the ability to throw a lock on it so the little hands can't get to all the fun stuff.
I know I can't buy it just yet, mostly because I do not want to get my hopes up that this color will match the house, but I have it saved into my favorites so in a few months I will be able to hopefully find the house that this will match. After that I can order it and have my dream come true living room.

So how do you decide when dealing with such dilemmas?

Yo Gabba Gabba Live!! and a Winner!!

I can not thank the Abraham Chavez Theatre enough for allowing part of my family the chance to watch Yo Gabba Gabba Live!! The boys had so much fun and it was a lot of fun just hanging out with the younger 2.

Brobee is Dustin's favorite, I think even more so now that he got to see him live. lol Plex is Benjamin's favorite, he even wore his Plex sweatshirt for the show. I had to snap a few pics with my phone because even though I took my camera, as soon as I went to take that first pic the battery was dead. :(  I did not take any pics during the show per the rules.

I think that I watch the show with the boys too much. LOL I knew every single word to all the songs they did. Peek A Boo became Benjamin's new favorite. He was dancing around to that one the whole time. Dustin's favorite was There's A Party In My Tummy, I think that is because Brobee is singing it.

I really do recommend you check out and find out if there are upcoming shows in your area and grab your tickets.

So I bet you are all wondering who won the Yo Gabba Gabba Prize Pack....
I let choose the winner and the Winner is....

Marry Me!! December 12th and 13th on LifeTime!!


This is one miniseries that I can not wait to see. Just reading about the how somehow has grabbed my attention and I now have a reminder set on my cable box. Check out the press release below.


LOS ANGELES, CA (November 16, 2010) – Award nominated film and television actress Lucy Liu (Ally McBeal, Charlie’s Angels) stars in the Lifetime Television original miniseries event Marry Me, the story of
one woman’s journey to find her elusive “Prince Charming.” But when she happens to find three at the same time, who she ultimately chooses is a surprise…even to her. The two night event premieres Sunday, December 12th and concludes on Monday, December 13, airing at 9pm ET/PT on both
nights. Steven Pasquale (Rescue Me), Bobby Cannavale (The Other Guys), Enrique Murciano (Without a Trace), Annie Potts (Law & Order: SUV), Vanessa Marano (Dexter), Elizabeth Bogush (Big Bang Theory) and Danielle Nicolet (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) also star.

Liu stars as Rae Ann Carter, a single aspiring artist-turned-social worker who always wanted a fairytale romance – to fall madly in love and live happily ever after. But when her two-year relationship falls apart,
Rae unexpectedly falls for a new man, Luke (Pasquale), who asks her to marry her after a few short dates. Just as everything seems to fall into place for Rae, her ex-boyfriend Adam (Cannavale) suddenly reemerges into her life with a proposal of his own. Things get even further complicated when a third man (Murciano), smitten by Rae, enters the picture and asks for her hand in marriage, as well. With three men after her heart, who will be Rae’s Prince Charming? Five-time Emmy® Award nominee Barbara Hall (Judging Amy, Joan of Arcadia), who wrote the teleplay, executive produces the four-hour romantic comedy with Susanne Daniels (The Lone Ranger, Hidden Hills). James Hayman (Ugly Betty) directed and co-executive produced the miniseries. Marry Me is produced by Sony Pictures Television for Lifetime.

I don't think there has been one miniseries on Lifetime that I have not liked. I watch these during what I like to call "Mom Time". lol Someday I am sure that the 2 youngest of the house will learn that "Mom Time" doesn't involve them sitting on my lap, eating my popcorn, or stealing drinks of my Mountain dew. But until then, I will cherish the cuddles and quiet time.

If you watch the show, please let me know your opinions.
