Weekend Update

We took Breana home this morning, but not before I got a picture of the girls in their tiaras:

I made the mistake of picking up the mail on our way home... and I got a U.S. District Court jury summons. Oh joy.

I finally got to the grocery shopping this afternoon and decided to get environmentally friendly by purchasing the reusable grocery bags. They're amazingly roomy and sturdy, and just fold up to sit in the back of the mommy mobile when not in use. I had read an article in last Sunday's paper about what a great idea the plastic grocery bags had been in theory, but are actually a serious detriment to the environment. So I'm feeling pretty good about the decision to stop using them.

The chili I've been simmering all afternoon is about done and the weekend is coming to a close. I'll not be watching the Oscars but can't wait to see what everyone wore in the morning. I'm looking forward to doing this after my workout:

My hubby got a jury summons for this week that he is nt looking forward to. Must be going around.

I've been summonsed like five times, just to get my notice of not having to show up each time. It gets annoying.

The girls look absolutely adorable in their tiaras.

Hopefully, you'll get lucky and not even have to show up for jusry duty. I was informed the morning that I was to be in court, that I didn't have to go. They settled everything outside of court. So, I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya.

I considered buying the reusable bags too, but then I thought, what will you put in the small garbage cans then? However, I think the environment needs some serious help, so as soon as I figure out a solution to the liners for small garbage cans issue, I'll be getting the reusable bags.

Odd enough, I got 2 different summons and neither came to anything (my number wasn't called.) I'd rather just do it and get it over but for some reason yours sounded more important than mine hahaha.

Great photo. They really do have no problem showing how much they enjoy themselves.

I'm kinda weird about the reusable bags. Been thinking about it. I just know that I can go from 4 to 15 bags when I go shopping. I also do like using the bags for disposable items at home and yes, lining the little trash cans.
