So excited! Need your help

Its Monday and well the start of my week is not that great but I do have something exciting to share and to ask your opinion about. I need my followers help because most of you have more experience in this then I do. Lisa from My Colorful Web Design created some new Social Icons for me to match my twitter page, my eBay Store, and well my soon to be blog make over. I have to say she is so wonderful.. but I chose the bigger ones, and she did make smaller ones. I need to know what you all think. I like the bigger ones, but are they too big?? I need your help and comments to help me decide. What do you think of my social icons on my right side bar. I cant wait to hear from you.

The start of the introductions...

I wanted to get a little more personal with my blog so I thought I would take the time to introduce my family to you and yes that does include the animals. This is my dog "Zeus" He is a Great Dane and he looks a bit small here in the picture,but I promise you he is not that is more then half the love seat he is taking up. lol. He was born October 3rd and will be three this year. He is the protector because well "Hubby" has to work nights and so the dog is here to make sure we are safe. He loves the kids and we have had him since he was a puppy. He is a big baby and loves attention. If you know anything about great dane's you know they have to have social interaction with people. He follows us around the house, wont go outside alone, and since I spoiled him when he was a puppy, I have to sit outside with him during every meal or he wont eat his food. Well there is his intro and dont worry more pictures to come so you can see his true size.. Pin It

Hope that you have a wonderful Saturday and enjoy your Surfin too.

Friday Blog Hop and TGIFwhy are you smiling?

BoostMyBlogFridayFriendly Friday Button
It is Friday and when school is in session for the kids I normally really look forward to Friday's because of the weekend of two days that I dont have to rush around and get them all to school or pick them up at different times, but for some reason even in the summer I have looked forward to a Friday. I think its just a comfort thing that "oh good Friday is here" but now school is starting again in a week and a half, baseball practice and games are starting again and we will be back to the on the go lifestyle. so here is a salute to TGIF and I will be posting a bit of why I am smiling on Friday along with my blog hop. I did steal the why are you smiling from a local radio station they do it every Friday. I will invite those that comment on my blog hop as to Why Are You Smiling. And maybe if it does well I will start a Why Are You Smiling Friday Blog Hop lol. Have a great day! I am smiling because my crochet project should be done this weekend.

P.S I found a Fan Page Follow For Facebook while Hopping today, and I am always looking for ways to get more fan's since my page is new and a bit boring. If you need some new fans and love to blog hop, lets Facebook page hop together.

If you like my blog please stop by and Vote for me here:

Time for a little re-arrange (Follow Me Wednesday)

Today my goal is to re-arrange the "little" girls room. There are 3 girls in this room and they are the youngest 3 so you can imagine the clutter and toys and just a mess. I recently got them a new computer desk that I got at a thrift store for $7.00. I love it but its the wrong color. I need to refinish it and make it white, but for the mean time its in the room because the computer was on the floor. Now its so unorganized in this room you cant even see the floor. No room to walk or move. So I am posting before pics, and when I am done I will post after pics. Next week challenge will be to refinish the dresser and the desks to all be white to match. Good luck to me. Any pointers?? I have never refinished furniture, only watched my mom do it for years.

Update on the room re-arrange: I spent my whole morning moving the furniture around only to end up with a flip and a flop of the desk and the dresser. Then pushing the bed over some to make corner space, and putting some things in the closet and throwing out the broken toys to make room for other toys in the toy tubs. I spent hours, but really the room is so small with so much furniture not a lot of options. I think that once I re-finish the dresser and the desks that are in there I will feel better about it. We will see how that goes. I will keep you updated.

Hoo Are you?

1. Do you prefer to write in cursive or print?
2. Do you prefer to shop online or go out and actually
go to the stores?
3. Would you prefer to go camping or stay in a motel?
4. Do your prefer going to the movies or staying
home to watch one?
5. Do you prefer a shower or a bath?

Here are my answers!

1. Do you prefer to write in cursive or print?
I print and cursive at the same time. LOL a little bit of both even when I sign my name.
2. Do you prefer to shop online or go out and actually go to the stores?
I like to shop online because its easier with 7 kids, shopping is not always a fun time. But then again I love to get out of the house and I have to admit I am a thrift store junkie so I will say both.
3. Would you prefer to go camping or stay in a motel?
Motel all the way, I have to many kids to be roughing it. LOL

4. Do your prefer going to the movies or staying home to watch one?
I cant remember the last movie that I saw in a theater. I get mine on demand or from Red Box and watch them at home with my popcorn, diet coke and the kids to bed.
5. Do you prefer a shower or a bath?
Who has time for a bath, 5 minutes and someone is knocking on the door needing something..

The Pool Is Up

It might have taken the whole summer but hey the pool is up and ready to be used now bring on the heat of the summer. Strange in sunny San Diego it really has not been that hot in East County. So we finally got the ground level, the pool up, filled, leaky pumps fixed, and they are ready to enjoy. We usually use the one that is like a big bubble top and last year the Great Dane chased the cat in and the cat popped it. This year we decided to go with the metal frame. So for the next 2 weeks we will be living outside, well they will be and me and my laptop will be sitting at the table watching them as they splash about... and this is only half my crew. More pics to come when the other half the crew is home.

Wacky Jacqui Design's and a ramble from me

I love to search for new backgrounds for my blog. If you follow me eventually you will see that I change it a lot, its really because I hate how it looks when every one else has such as cute professional blogs. So for the time being until I have a professional one done, I like to change it up. Well to my point Jacqui from Wacky Jacqui designs is having a launch party for her website. She is giving away some great things and does some beautiful work. You should stop by and pay her a visit.
My other ramble is I am so excited. I have been reading other peoples blogs and I am going to get more personal with mine, tell you about me and my crew, but for now I have to say THANK YOU to those that left me comments. I have never had them before and it feels go to know someone stopped by. I am doing the happy dance tonight for sure... Pin It

Luis Vuitton Question for the day?

I am really trying to get my eBay off the ground and start selling things that I have in my closet that I just dont use or that I never will use. I also like to shop deals and share what I find. I have a question for the day. I was given this purse that was said to be a Luis Vuitton. When I went to post it on eBay I did some research about different markers to tell when Louis Vuitton is fake or real. There is a code on this purse but not like the ones that I found on the websites, its only digits not numbers and digits. it is 92675. SO I didnt post it as a Louis Vuitton, I dont want to sell a fake item. I was out this weekend getting some clothing at thrift stores and I saw a LV bag and checked for the codes with nothing. This bag was even brown and gold and looked like a true Louis bag, so what am I doing wrong and where is this code that I am not seeing?? Any comments would be helpful... please. Pin It
