So back to my good week...Monday the kids were out of school so we got the house clean and then went to the $1 theater for some Veggie Tales with popcorn, soda & candy +++Mom Points. Tuesday I took Blythe & Tucker to the pool for the first time in months. They had a really good time and I enjoyed visiting with a couple of friends. There was hardly anyone there and again +++ Mom Points. Later that day I went to my new Dentist who I really like and had a cleaning and check up. Can you say "NO CAVITIES"? I was really happy and I got a free T-Shirt. I'm now in the Tuffy Tooth Club! Thursday I went to Micah's Cub Scouts to learn how to make Won Tons for their Blue & Gold this Friday, +++Mom Points.
I finished all my V.T. for the month, took a family dinner, went to lunch at Cafe Rio with a good friend, watched a ton of American Idol, had a yummy brunch/chat with my Fantastic V.T., went to a awesome concert with Trent, and enjoyed some semi decent weather.
Now just a few comments on the concert. I love Peter Breinholt and I got an email about a concert he was doing at UVSC. Trent was so sweet and offered to go with me. What sealed the deal for me was that Sam Payne was opening for him. He is so good and I absolutely enjoyed the entire concert. It was a small venue and almost entirely unplugged. It was just one of those "Feel Good" concerts. I also picked up Sam Payne's new CD that won't even be out till April, $5 what a deal. (He says Hi, Sherod.)
We watched "The Secret" last night and I'm definitely going to keep this positive thinking going. Brigg taped a piece of paper to our ceiling that says $1,000,000. Big thinker huh?
SPELL CHECK WORKS AGAIN!!!! (The Secret works.)

My kids were watching this video on YouTube this morning and I had a total flashback to the 80's and Weird Al's "Eat It". We loved this guy when we were kids and now my kids are watching him on YouTube. You have to watch this video because there is a hilarious cameo appearence. My kids can't believe that I knew who Weird Al was, because I was born in the Dark Ages and all.

I love In-N-Out! I actually had to take a Sunday lunch brake to get my fix (bad girl.) We have a wannabe place here in Utah called Chadders, not as good.
There's no place like Home. This picture that my Mom painted of Sherod has hung in our garage for probably 17 years. It put a smile on my face when I saw it again. What a face.
Bakersfield has some really good places to eat, and I tried to eat at as many as I could, explaining the extra weight I have put on. Elephant Bar is one of my Favs. Before I took this picture my kids were hanging form the elephants tusks. I swear I can't take those kids anywhere. Even my Mom was hiding her face.
I love that all the streets have names and that I know where they all are. That's home for you.
I have to say as much as I love California I am happy we are here in Utah. The only thing that would make it perfect is if I had some of MY family here. Living in Bakersfield my whole life with family around the corner, it has been an adjustment (for me, not for Trent.) But we have made some very good friends here, and after all...This Is Home.
Unknown Fact: The city flower in Bakersfield is the tumbleweed. There were a couple days of very windy weather where you had to dodge tumbleweeds on the back roads. I took this picture on the way out to my Moms. Notice the tumbleweeds in the middle of the road and along the fence line.
