Can we just say OMG! I love that word, but back to mother's day and this giveaway that 5 minutes for mom is doing. I love the HP MINI 1000, I have to have one, they are giving away one in the Mother's Day Giveaway, if I dont win one I might have to just save up all my aluminum cans to buy one. It would make my life so much easier, I can take it with me and work from anywhere, I mean baseball games, picking kids up from school, in the car, it would just simplify things so much. They are also giving away a coach bag, now that is something else that i have been wanting for years. Being a mom I know that we all put things aside that we want to make sure that we provide for our kids, but when you have a big family like I do you give up so much that you sometimes forget that you have to take care of you too. I can remember for as long as I can think back I have wanted a big family. I always said that I wanted 4 kids, and then I wanted more and this mother's day I have that dream come true, I have 3 beautiful step daughters added to my family. They have been in my life for 4 years now, but this year I am officially their step mom. I feel very blessed to be a part of their lives, and them to be in mine. I have 7 wonderful children and I have the opportunity to stay home and be with them and watch them all blossom into the people they are going to become. Mother's day has never really been that special, but this year I think it is. Happy Mothers Day to all the mom's out there.
I am sitting here enjoying one of my favorite shows, The Real Housewives of New York, I lke all the real housewifes shows but New York happens to be on now and I remembered Cinco de Mayo when they started talking about their Skinny Girl Margarita's that they like to drink. My husband and I always celebrate Cinco De Mayo and I thought I better get my stuff to make margarita's for that day. It is coming up soon. Over at Twitter moms they are having a party for Cinco De Mama, you should join and have some fun. I will be making Not So Skinny Girl Margarita's and I thought I would share the recipe. It really is very simple, but that is the kind of girl that I am simple and I am trying to watch my weight but prefer to not give up all of the fun things in my life. lol Happy May 5th!

This year my baby is 2 so I think that she will actually understand the concept of looking for eggs. This excites me because my older children are almost too old and they just do the mad dash for as many eggs as they can without getting the true excitement. I just came across a giveaway at Pajama Mama that is a gift of tootsie rolls. I can still remember when I was little and I would trade my sisters for tootsie rolls at Easter and Halloween. If you are a tootsie roll lover like me you should go see what you could win with Pajama Mama Tootsie Roll Giveaway. Happy Early Easter.
