Alright I finally got my new look done, what do you guys think? :)

Cranky Cranky Cranky.....

Woke up this morning feeling the same as yesterday, running a bit of a fever, sore throat and headache, guess this cold will stick around a bit longer than I thought. The kids must be getting it too, they're kind of mopy ( h…

Works for Me Wednesday!!!

You do what you have to do!!!

I think as a mother, wife and woman in general, we've all become used to just " doing what you have to do ". You keep going, and going and going, but you start noticing that no matter how much or how fast you mov…

SOAKING UP THE SUN

We went to Veronica's house this afternoon so the kids could play in the sprinklers and pool etc. They had a blast and it was so much fun just watching them interact, they've been good friends the past two years and I kno…

There's nothing better than the end of the week, at least for me. It usually means I can stay up later, the kids can stay up later too, and yes I know a lot of parents don't agree with having their kids up late, but mine …

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!!!
