One of my guilty pleasures are shows like The Real Housewives of Orange County and the like. In this show "real" housewives (complete with plastic surgery, nannies, mansions and 100,000 cars) live out their exotic daily lives. I love to see how fancy they get on a daily basis and the petty drama that plagues their daily lives.
In my reality things are a bit different.
Everyone eats Life cereal for breakfast - and loves it.
We celebrate the little things, like the last Friday of second grade. Oh silly brothers.
The face that Warner makes when he is trying to be funny.
Lincoln covering his eyes during the smooching scene of Rio at Family Movie Night at the elementary school. No racy stuff here.
Oh wait, I do get all fancy every now and then. This is the real housewives of Ellensburg. My local MOPS group put on an end of the year masquerade ball as a fun night for couples. We got to get dressed up and dance the night away. No acrylic nails or blow outs, but it was fun to put on a pair of heels for once.
Wow, Shane sure cleans up good!
One way to get in some beauty sleep, I let Lincoln put a sheet of stickers on my arm so I could lay down on the couch for five minutes. He thought it was pretty awesome.
Warner decided that rather than cry over spilled milk, he would just slurp it off of his tray.
Dylan, my little rock climber. As a fun way to end the school year, they bring in a mobile climbing wall and each class gets turns trying it out. Look at that determination.

All three boys playing during recess. They are all getting TOO big.
So there you have it. Nothing glamorous, but this is what real housewives do all day.
