Random Bits of this and That:)

 So my DH ordered some of that funky tea that is a flower, that actually "blooms" in the teapot. So we decided to try it the other night. This is what it looked like out of the package...just a tight lil ball and green

Then here it is after we brewed a pot...pretty neat if you ask me:)
And the tea was pretty tasty as well...DH actually saved some for iced tea. If you have the chance to try this,I totally recommend it:)

So Wed was the last day of school for my lil man, he is officially a first grader now:)
So I decided it was time for a date day:) Since all he has been talking about it the new Cars2 movie, I figured I'd take him. So I make sure we get there in plenty of time, I make sure I have quarters for the arcade. Don't you know, they converted the whole arcade to tokens only, and of course the only token machine was BROKEN. Try explaining that to a 6 year old who has been waiting for this day for months. Aye...
So we decided to ...yikes..get a snack...(my first installment payment is due next week)
Pretzels with an array of dipping we had Mayo, Honey Mustard, regular Mustard, and Ranch.
Another cool thing that happened at the movies was that he got a free book when we purchased our tix!
So we walked around and checked out all the "Coming Soon" posters, and of course all the ones for Cars2 were way up high...but he did find a few that he liked....

here he is, doing his best Optimist Prime impersonation...err..Transformination? you know...acting like a
He was so excited! It was a huge..very cool display:)
On a side note, speaking of daughter will NOT be getting a scholarship.....
She was walking around with this bucket on her head saying " I . am. a . robot." lol it was pretty funny:)
So back to the movie date:)
Puss in Boots is another movie we are anxious to see, I always thought he was a pretty interesting cat...
We suddenly realized that 1:05 had turned into 1:28 so we hustled to get a seat, and finish our snack in the theater..

So did I mention this was in 3D? A first for both of us. Totally dig the 3D thing I must say! :)
Even the previews were in 3D! Cars2 gets a very enthusiastic 2 thumbs up:) by the way:)

And since I can't seem to post as often as I'd like, I will just throw in the pics of my flowers and
This is Hibiscus..looks sooo pretty..there are 3 trees on the edges of one of the garden areas..BTW my DH takes care of the plants, trees, shrubs, veggies, and anything else growing outside..I have NOTHING to do with any of it:)
These lil flowers are cute, they have lil vines that will reach out and creep and climb whatever is close. They are supposed to attract butterflies and hummingbirds, but I have yet to see either....
The same in red...

I love these in the window box:) I did choose them, but of course forgot the name of
The pink one is sooo bright the pic just doesn't do it justice, but figured I'd share anyway...
My DH just came over and made fun for blogging flower pics..lmao

And where DH's protective invention takes place.....

the Nose
And to top off the end of the school year...( ? I dunno..sounded )
