5 Things that make me Happy

Being a short week, this week flew by. I cannot believe we are nearing the middle of October! Thanksgiving is now in the past and we are now looking forward to the next holiday! Have you picked up your Halloween costumes yet? I picked up the kids’ last month because there is nothing worse than going on the hunt for a certain size a day before Halloween. We are also gearing up for Mr Simon’s birthday. He turns 2 towards the end of the month and we have some major fun planned for him and his bestie who also just turned 2. Lots to look forward to and celebrate ahead; I just love this time of year. Now on with this week’s happy! Read More

5 Things that make me Happy!

I have been suffering with a terrible cough for the past month and I have not slowed down a bit and yes it has caught up with me! So I am taking a breather and have a very slow relaxing weekend planned…did you hear that kids? Someone asked me the other day if I had a respiratory disease so I thought it was time to get to the doctors and get checked out. Okay let’s be even more real: Miss Charlie now has the cough so I am taking her to the doctors and may as well get checked out while I am there too. Not sure if I’d be going if she wasn’t hacking and coughing now too because my Mom needs always come last and well maybe because a night out with the girls, Starbucks, and just about anything sounded more fun than a trip to see the doctor. I am slapping my own hand right now because now I am totally run down. Take a lesson from me guys, take care of yourself it is always WAY worse when you don’t! Now on to all the positive: Read More

5 Things that make me Happy

Oh my goodness this week flew by! I wanted it to go snail slow but each day just seemed to go in quicker. I am so excited/nervous for Miss Charlie to start school next week. I feel like it is my first day of school. My girl is more than ready and we are both going to be just fine. I want school to be a joyful experience for her. I want her to be intellectually challenged in a safe comfortable environment. It was not an easy decision to send her to a private school. Over the summer Jordan and I have put in extra hours of work to pay for it. Looking at her schedule for the year I can already tell it was worth it. I can’t wait to watch this little girl grow this year. Now lets get on with some other happy: Read More
