Today is the last day of my spring break, ugh!  Going into spring break I didn’t think it was going to be much, I mean Chris and I really didn’t have much planned.  The only thing was to AVOID the Yuma County Fair like the plague.  Chris has BAD allergies and so does Alexa so avoiding the fair was a must and the good news is that we avoided and the 5 year old didn’t ask about, woohoo mission accomplished!  My Mom and I sewed all week and did NO housework, it was awesome!  We decided to do NOTHING and enjoy it!  So here are my Top 10 favorite things I did on Spring Break:

Top 10 favorite things of Spring Break 2011:

10.  Waking up every morning to coffee and the sound of my kids playing

9.  Going to Joann fabric almost everyday for a project

8.  Watching my son paint his countless bird houses that we bought at Joann’s

7.  Making homemade food everynight

6.  Watching a movie everynight with the love of my life!:)

5.  Going to Zumba class ( to me this is awesome because really who wants to workout during spring break?!)

4.  Reading Bert and Ernie’s opposites about 5, 000 times- I can thank my MIL for this one, lol:)

3.  Making a wristlet, cape, and spy backpack for kiddo’s- the wristlet is for me!

2.  Going to movies to see “hop with my kids, my mom and the Bate Clan

and the #1 favorite thing I did on Spring Break 2011 was…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

I need a date night…..badly!

Do you ever feel sometimes as if you haven’t had a real conversation with your significant other?  It’s hard when you both work and your kids require a lot of your undivided attention and not to mention getting the laundry done, dinner cooked and on the table.  Then, when you finally get the kids to bed( after many excuses why they can’t go to bed) you get in bed yourself and are super tired so you just go to sleep!  Gosh my list could go on and on.  So needless to say my hubby and I need a date night BADLY!!!!

My spring break is this upcoming week so I’m gonna see what I can do.  Any thoughts on what we should do?  I was thinking the movies, we haven’t done that in a LONG time!!
