All 3 of you please email (firstname.lastname@example.org)me your snail mail addresses and I will get those out to you! Have fun creating with them and let us know out here in blog land what you made!
We seem to always have a birthday or some sort of celebration here at Mambi. Today was celebrating Tonya and the birth of her first child. so much fun to get together with everyone you work with and just chill and hang out. Eat good food and just spend time with each other. We are usually running the hallways meeting deadlines and such. Not alot of time to chat! Love working here. Great atmosphere and great people!
Lots of stuff to do around here. Deadlines and projects to be made. Always seem to be waiting on product to arrive. Will be kitting CHA class stuff pretty soon. I love doing that. Means I am going to be teaching soon and that is the best part of my job!
Seems to be that tonight both of my kids will be gone tonight. Hoping to get some date night in with the hubby! We need it! Baseball has taken a toll on us. I know I said i wouldn't mention baseball anymore but it has been a week of it and it didn't go our way! bummer! So maybe a margarita and some chips and salsa will cheer us up! Sounds good to me!
Wow, this post has gone all over the place. Not alot to show you so i guess a little chatter is what I think might keep you interested.
Have a wonderful weekend and will hopefully have some great photos to share next week!

Okay, so last night Jaxon's team lost. 10-9. Great game...for TEXAS! I am a bit bitter and sad. Jaxon...already over it. The rest of the 10 year old Titans moved on when they found out we were having pizza for snack. Me, Ed and I am sure a few other parents...still going over the game in our heads. Maybe it is just me. There is a line in the movie Remember the Titans (how relevant is that) where the assistant coaches daughter says after he lost the Hall of Fame coaches award she says to her Dad "I wanted that Hall of Fame REAL BAD! I know how she feels. I wanted first place REAL BAD! I need to move on like the rest of those boys. Take a lesson from them.

Man oh Man...
I found this new website that downloads blog templates...trouble! Who am I kidding that this would be an easy task for a not so savvy computer girl! I downloaded this cute new pink scrolly flowery template saved it in blogger and BAM a new template. It looked great until I realized that all of my page elements were GONE! Never to be found by me! So I have spent that last hour re-doing my blog, adding links and song lists and blog counters. Now my blog counter is at zero again. I don't like that. It was fun to see how many blog friends have visited. It was getting to be a somewhat big number. I liked that. I wasn't going to post because quite frankly I was tired of the blog thing today. But then I remembered that I needed to post my salad recipe and I have a proud Mom moment to tell you about.
First the Salad. It is called Cabbage Taco Salad.
1 head of cabbage-chopped( when I am in a hurry I use the bagged cabbage)
1 bunch of cilantro-leaves only chopped
1 medium red onion-diced
1 small can of mexican corn-drained
1-2 cups of mexican cheese in bag
1/2 bag of your favorite tortilla chips-crushed
1 Tbls. of cumin
1-2 Tbls. fresh lime juice
1 jar of ranch dressing( I like to make mine from scratch when I have the time)
Toss the first 6 ingredients in large salad bowl
Mix together cumin, lime juice and ranch dressing at least a half hour before serving salad. Toss with salad mixture about 5 minutes before serving to let the cabbage soften a tad and the flavors to all come together.
I have taken this to many of potlucks. I also like to add grilled chicken to make it a main course. I promise you your guests will eat this one up. I never have leftovers of this salad.
Now my proud Mom moment. Some of you may think this is just silly. Some of you may think no big deal but in the Gurzi household this is HUGE!
I only wish that I had a before and after photo to get the full picture of the situation.
Makenna has an issue with keeping her room clean as do most 14 year olds. I know this only because all of us parents talk. This is one issue that we all bring up and realize they are all the same. We go round and round with her about this. Ed will go to the mat on it. I have come to an understanding that it is alright to close the door. That way I can pretend it really isn't as bad as I thought. We decided that she needs to have it clean before the weekend in order to do what she wants on the weekends. Now I will admit we have forgotten sometimes and we go up there and enter at our own risk and then kick ourselves all the way down the stairs. She had juped us again! Ugh!
This week was another story. She had piles upon piles of laundry. I don't even know how she had anything left to wear. But she did. She did laundry all weekend. But what was happening was it was piling up all over her floor and I just knew that all those clean clothes would end up in the laundry basket not to ever be worn. I told her she absolutely had to get them folded and put away. Here is the proud moment...only once did i have to tell and her and look here is her room absolutely nothing on the floor. I opened drawers and closets because I was just astonished. Clean clothes folded put away and hung up! Say it isn't so. So I had to take a picture.
Although her bed is unmade.You can see a floor and the trash basket is EMPTY! A very proud moment! It really doesn't take much to make me happy!
Here is another easy project done with our "Sunshine" line. I love these projects that take no time at all and add so much color and fun to your home!
Thanks for taking the time to read about my Mom moment. It was a little wordy. I just had to put it in writing though.
Enjoy your day

This weekend started out fantastic. We went to our friends the Murray's for dinner. We have known them since before Jaxon was born and the kids get along like sisters and brothers. A wonderful friendship. We Love the Murrays. I was coming off a somewhat stressful couple of days. So for me it was great to enjoy a glass or two of wine with my friend and just relax. But then baseball came on Saturday and with that comes issues! This year more than ever!I think it seems like more than ever because Ed is not only a manager, but he is an umpire and is the safety officer on the baord so needless to say we are baseball 24/7! Although I try to stay out of things and really just be a sounding board for Ed this was a hard one. It had to do with integrity. A huge issue in my book. This word seems to be creeping into my life alot lately. Hence the stressful couple of days last week. Not sure if God is trying to teach me or I am to be an example. I feel pretty strongly that I am to be an example. I don't really compromise my integrity since I feel so strongly against that. I just really HATE Dad's...who are coaches/mamagers that will do anything for a win. Even to their own son. People~ as competitive as I am, meaning I LOVE winning it is not worth it if you cheat, hurt, or whatever else to win a 10 year old baseball game. Lots of talk amongst parents and gossip. You know how that goes. Parents talk even if they don't know the specifics and don't get me wrong I have made the same mistake myself. I guess what I am trying to say here is I am learning from this guy and trying to put things into perspective. 10 year old ball is not going to make my life better whether we win or not.

One more thing,
I am deeply saddened that CKMedia has decided not to go forth with the Home and Heart magazine. The May and August issue will still be released but after that...GONE!
So go out there and buy up this magazine so that the Big Wigs at CKMedia have made a tremendous mistake!
If you would go on over and send sunshiny thoughts to her I know that she would really appreciate it!! If you have never ventured over to her blog you will not be disappointed!!! She is inspiring and a very talented gal!!
Now I am off !
