Florida or Bust

This week has been a whirlwind. From Houston to Fresno, one economics test, one house to clean and a trip to prepare for this girl has been busy.

And After all the running around, I think I only burned one of the many margaritas I am about to have while on vacation. But that is okay, though my intentions were good, to loose 10 pounds prior to the trip, I can always rely on my Mom Suit.

Okay so enough about my week and my intentions to fit into a bikini that appeared to be my size in the store. Let's get to the fun stuff that will have you saying, "oh no they didn't" at the end of this post.

Prior to leaving for Fresno I tasked myself with two things, cleaning and packing the girls. Everything was organized and ready for the hubs to pack in the car. The Hubs task was to get the hitch installed on my minivan. Yes, I am not only a mini-van driving mama, I am now an official member of the mini-van haulers club.

In addition to the hitch, the hubs felt he wouldn't be cool unless we had one of these...

Now here is the best part. The hubby had the bright idea that we could save a little space by making this our suitcase and strap it to the back of the van.

Yep, you guessed it....I was not only stressed about how the kiddos were going to do in the car but I now wondered if ALL of our clothes were going to be roadkill somewhere along I-10.

Good news is that we made it and it appears that Tupperware is the new "it" luggage when traveling with two kids under four and a husband with a bright idea.

Now back to this...

Julie Hearts Peter

Instead of that two shot double latte why not donate your money to help a girl named Julie who is love with a boy named Peter.

Julie is a wife and mom of two great kids, with our 3rd on his way! Kai was born in 11/08 and Lilah in 3/10 and Peter 2/20. How do I know the due date of our newest bundle of joy? Because he is a four year old boy that lives on the other side of the world, just waiting for his Forever Family to come for him. He doesn't know it yet, but he will soon. I love advocating and educating to anyone who will listen about Down syndrome. And desperately trying to figure out how to be a mom to a girly-girl who thinks she is a bulldozer. Who would have ever thought having a child with DS would finally lead me to my passion in life? And that one little girl could baffle me so? Surely not me.

My favorite Julie quote, "I never knew I wanted a child with Down syndrome until I was given one!"

Here is where you can help. The Kehm family is having a laptop giveaway for our final push to get Peter home. $10 = 1 entry.

Help bring Peter home, you will be glad you did!
