March 12 of 12 Challenge...

Thanks to my good friend, Lee, I did not forget to participate in March 12 of 12. She even let me know that you can sign up for an email reminder...and I finally did.
Today was just one of those roller coaster days. I went through so many emotions...you'd think I was a girl. Anyway, it ended well and that's what counts - right?
Well, let's see what I was up to today!

Here's Panini. She's Hannah's new pug. I don't want to love her, but I do. She's so cute...in an ugly kind of way. LOL

A friend at church had a ton of these kumquats and offered them to whoever would take them. My family ended up taking almost the whole bag. I love the little "gem of the citrus family". You have to eat them, peel and all for them to taste right. I brought some to school and let my Jr. High history class try them out. They loved 'em.
I had to include a photo of myself this time...Not my favorite portrait. LOL I am still all puffy and red. This picture was taken early in the day...before my coffee!

Had to make a quick stop at Walgreen's on the way to school. Picked up an issue of Scrapbooks etc. and still haven't had a chance to crack it open. =[

I got this package in the mail today. It was the book I won for the February blog challenge hosted by Traci. I also got a $10 gift card to Barnes and Noble. Thanks Traci!!

This turned out to be the tastiest omelette I've ever made for myself! It may be that I don't really ever make omelettes. =] Anyway, it had egg, monterey jack cheese, mushroom and spinach. Yum.

Marco found this little toy Beetle car in one of my boxes. He and Naomi were playing with it. They were having fun pushing it around...then Naomi discovered that if you pull it back, it would zoom off on it's own. Oh, Man!! That's when the party started. =] They had a blast with it!

Stacy Julian recently talked about a company that sells mismatched socks...I think they are called Mismatch or something like that. Well, Hannah has been doing that forever. She doesn't care. I think she does it on purpose. This was on the way home from school.

This was taken on the way home also. They are knocked out! Hannah was even sleeping until she realized that I was taking pictures. Long day.

Marco announced that the two of us were going out. Woo Hoo! We went to one of our favorite places. Korean BBQ. We love cooking our own meats on the little hibachi type grill in the center of our table. Makes me homesick for my mom.

The picture does not do this moon justice. I have a simple, digital, point and shoot. It was very beautiful tonight, but pretty chilly (for Southern California)...You get the idea though. That's the moon. =]

Last, but certainly not least, the item I wait all year for...
Sweet Tart Jelly Beans. I am not a big Jelly Bean fan, but these? These are special. You need to try them. Just the right amount of sweet and tart! Hey they should call these Sweet Tart....oh, never mind, they already do!
Well, there you have it! A peek into my day. My dear hubby and I had a great talk at dinner. We were writing out some things that we thought we needed to change at home to help us be more organized and help us stress less...we'll see if I have the discipline to really FOCUS! =] Thanks for stopping by friends!!

Yay! Love this month's 12 on 12. Looks like it was a full day - funny that the kids were all sleeping on the way home from school. Great pictures!

Thanks so much for posting about those Jelly Beans! I saw them when I was at Target today and thought, "Well if Mrs. M likes them, they must be good." So I picked some up and my whole fam is loving them. Good choice!!!
