Mooooom Stop Your Embarrassing Me

Last week I was on top of the world when I learned that teens said Dads were more embarrassing than Moms were. Well, my bubble quickly burst when my sons found out about my bragging.

Apparently, I am still pretty dang embarrassing. Here are the top five reasons I am still very embarrassing according to my sons (well one of them anyways) in no particular order and in their (his) own words. 

1.      You dance horribly and out of nowhere
2.      You sing off key and CONSTANTLY
3.      You treat me like a child and I am 14!
4.      You love me WAY too much & say lots of lovey dovey stuff
5.      Sometimes, you talk too much

Of course I asked them both if there was anything I could change to be a little less embarrassing. The response was, "Nope, cus then you wouldn't be you and you’re pretty cool!" and "You're not really that embarrasing."

My sons are cool too! I know I embarrass them way more than they would like to admit. I am pretty sure they don't want to hurt my feelings. I embarrass my self, so how can I not embarrass them. Luckily they never hold any grudges against me and are pretty quick to just laugh it off. 

Here is my list of things I have done or do that I think may embarrass my boys.

1.      Volunteer in their classes (I am one of the few parent's that steps on the high school campus)
2.      Go on field trips (again, who else wants to hang with a bunch of hormonal teens)
3.      Pick them up from school bumping "Tupac" or "Prince"
4.      Go with them to rated R movies (if they are going to see it they are going to see it with me and be uncomfortable!)
5.      I  get bad or "teenager's" hair cut
6.      I wear thongs
7.      I spill food on myself when we go out to eat
8.      I ask too many questions about my food when we go out to eat
9.      I trip on stuff a lot
10.  I say, "Oh she's cute" "Don't you think she's cute?" (my ex husband never liked that either)
11.  I use 90's slang way too much. What? Really? Get over it home skillet. I know I am all that and a bag of chips so just chill!

At what age do you think kids stop seeing us as perfect and start to get a little embarrassed of their mommies?

Is cutting coupons worth it?

It’s been awhile since I have taken the time to coupon. I actually got pretty good at it. I really enjoyed looking for deals and saving tons of money, but it does take time.  Time is something that I just can't seem to find enough of these days. So, over the last few months I have stopped couponing. 

Inspired by my recent reduction in pay and a Facebook post by The Krazy Coupon Lady, I decided to spend a little time and take a small trip to the store using coupons.
Here is what I got

Look at my savings
So maybe a lot of this stuff is junk, but the kids only have a few weeks left of summer break and had friends over yesterday, so I was going to buy them some crappy food as a special treat anyways. I figure if I am going to give my kids and their friends soda, an 8 oz serving is better than a regular 12 oz can.  Right?
Everything except the Activa was purchased with a coupon but it was on sale for $1.88 which is a GREAT price so I couldn’t pass it up. Okay, so I didn't get anything f…

San Francisco in a Day

I have loved San Francisco ever since I was a kid. I love the cool air, the ocean-side views, the food, the stores, the many different and unique neighborhoods and so much more.I especially love walking around pier 39. This is usually where I go when I hit the city. The smell of the salt water, fish, clam chowder and the freshly baked sour dough bread that does not taste better anywhere else on earth makes my heart skip a beat. I make the short drive over to the city by the bay every chance I get. Luckily my not so little anymore cousin loves San Francisco just as much as I do.When deciding what to do with our one full day together this past Monday, there was only one choice! This trip did not go as smoothly as all of my other trips to San Francisco but it was still fun and totally worth it. Traffic was crazy so we decided to take the Bart part of the way in. We had to try two different Bart stations and three different parking lots before we were able to find a spot to park.

Weight Loss Challenge: Week SEVEN update (LATE POST)

I did weigh in on Friday and guess what? I stayed the same for the second week in a row. This week I think I will really need to push myself to see a loss. I have about 24 more pounds to go to meet my goal which means I need to lose about 3 pounds a week from here on out. I have decided to step things up a bit in order to push through my plateau. Here is what I am going to do 1.LOG EVERYTHING EVERY DAY. I have been a little lax on this. I will be sure to track every little bite so I can more accurately assess how I am doing and what I need to change next week.
2.STEP IT UP A NOTCH. I have been active but I have been doing pretty leisurely walks. I will jog at least 2 times this week and add one more intense activity. I am thinking dancing or Zumba.

3.ADD MORE DAILY ACTIVITY. What I mean by this is that in addition to actually working out I will take every opportunity to be more active in my daily life. I can walk to the store that is less than a mile from my house when I need to get a gal…
