Shopping with Boys

.......isn't my favorite thing to do! Friday night I had the bright idea of taking my 4 boys shopping for shoes, and new comforters, and a dishwasher. So, after they all got home from school we headed to Discover Mills. Before we even parked the boys were telling me they were hungry.....of course! I told them if they behaved {ha, that's funny} we would eat when we were done shopping. We started with the the Sears Scratch and Dent. They also have treadmills and lawnmowers for the boys to play on....or not so much. Thankfully no one got hurt while running on the treadmill while I was looking at dishwashers. No luck but I did find a quilt from Land's End in the Sears Outlet that I loved. Did you know Sears sells Land's End stuff? Me either.

So, after that we headed to Ross~ one of my favorite stores.....We found Bowen a pair of Teva sandals for $8.00! SCORE~ they were originally $28! I wasn't there for sandals but who can pass up such a great deal, and there was only one pair so I had to get them. After we had no luck with finding comforters for Andrew and Luke we headed to the Adidas Outlet on a shoe hunt for Mama. Usually I get them at the outlet since they have a large selection and large shoes~ I wear and 11 people. I don't enjoy shoe shopping since they don't always have my size. No luck for me in that store. And it didn't help that Luke was whining for shoes the whole time we were in there. So we moved on to the boys instead. I love the Stride Rite outlet. It rocks. I scored a pair for Luke and Bowen there. $20 bucks each...not bad. I had almost given up on finding shoes for me and then we walked past Off Broadway....mega shoe store and they were having a big sale! So, thankfully the first pair I found that I liked had my boat size of a shoe. The were $65 on sale for $50 so that was a pretty good deal. I try not to buy anything unless it is on Sale or even better Clearance! The boys played with their Burger King Neo Pets toy while I tried on shoes. Yes, I did feed them. In between getting their shoes and my shoes. I have never waited of fast food longer than I did Friday night. I ordered 3 hamburger kid meals and a chicken sandwich meal for Andrew. I was waiting for 18 min. to get the food. The boys had already polished off their drinks by the time they finally got their food! I had a gyro from Great Wraps! like I always do at the mall. So, over all the shopping experience with 4 boys by myself wasn't too bad after all! I only got asked a few time if I was trying for a girl! NO People....I was NOT trying for a girl, I was just trying to have fun~ ha! Hope ya'll had a fun weekend too.

Oh yeah! I almost forgot. Ben, Bowen, Jack, and I went to Brandsmart last night and scored a new dishwasher and rice cooker! We have needed a new dishwasher for 3 years. It didn't even hardly clean dishes anymore! You know your a housewife when a new dishwasher and rice cooker makes your day~ heck it makes my year!

Not Me! Monday

For some reason my computer won't let me copy the NMM code off of so until I figure it out....we won't be seeing it. So, anyways....are you embarrassed for feeding your kiddos fast food for 3 days in a row, or maybe keep forgetting to put a folder back in your kids book bag? Well, don't be......just head on over to and join in the Not Me! fun....

I did not totally forget about my boy's dentist appt. last week after a weekend of snow..and I did not do the same exact thing 6 months ago...I always remember stuff...nope, not me!

I am not super duper thankful for my husband who took great care of one sick Mama and 4 boys {who thankfully were not sick} for 3 full days with a ton of activities to do all by his little self! ..nope, not me!

Potty People

Bowen loves to play on the potty. He always takes his diaper off and goes to it! He will stand, sit, stand over the little Ikea potty, and as seen here he will also sit backwards! He is not potty trained because I am inconsistent with it~ HA! Oh well, he is my baby and I don't have a problem with changing diapers and such. He will be big before I know it!

Markers~ They Do A Body Good! Wordfull Wednesday

The boys and I went to Katie's house on Monday to let the kids play. I could not get Bowen and Matthew to look at me! But, sweet Benjamin would~ precious boy!

Katie went to check on the boys and couldn't find the little ones and she heard a stir from the spare room downstairs! She found them eating markers. I told her Bowen probably instigated it! He does this at home too! So she told me to grab the camera! Ha!

Who Us?!

We gave them some Sprite to wash down the markers!
