Apparently there are a lot of people looking for love out there. I had the most readers ever yesterday after linking to Kellie's blog - thank you! My friend is truly a catch, let me know if your interested. 

I have to admit I don't blog much just because I don't have the time. But looking back over previous posts I have written I would really like to try and post more. If for no other reason than to remember day to day events that get lost in the shuffle. 

Today C, the kids and I drove over to the house to check out the floor, see the wall getting torn down in the kitchen and sign contracts. The whole house just opened up with the wall gone! LOVE! Next step is flooring = nightmare. 

W & K played outside with the neighbor the entire time we were at the house. They climbed trees, sucked on honeysuckles, and rode their bikes. After a relaxing afternoon, we went to the pool and swam until dinner. A great all around day.

Anna, 36, OH

My best friend Anna is more than a friend, she is like a sister. I have know her since freshman year of high school, when we met in English class with Miss Miller. She is one of the most loyal and generous people I have ever met. She will pack your bags for college, bring you a yummy dinner in the hospital after giving birth, and she will make you laugh like a crazy person. Anna is a very hard worker, doing everything she can to support herself and her two boys. Her life is not easy, but she loves those two little boys with her whole heart. She is looking for someone to be her friend, her partner, her everything. If you are interested leave a comment and I will gladly reply!

What a Crazy Ride This Has Been (or what we've been doing the past 6 months)

Where has time gone? My poor little blog is so neglected and unloved. In the past 6 months...

W has started kindergarten

K has started dance classes

and M was born!

I guess you could say we've been a little busy. And now brings about the start of another new year. I always look forward to a new year, not just because if signals my birthday month beginning, but also because it offers the promise of a new start. And though 99% of the New Year's Resolutions aren't kept, that promise of a new start is still alive and well.

More memories of Christmas to be shared soon. Until then, Happy New Year!

06-15-11 Princess Kate

This is K's interpretation of what Kate Middleton wore on her wedding day. She nailed it (at least in toddler world).


What to do on a rainy, dreary day? Head to the mall for a little lunch and retail therapy of course! This picture was taken after lunch when the kids were "working" at the table next to ours. Apparently K was not happy with something W said to her.

06-12-11 Butterscotch's Poop

Ok guys, we can go outside and play. But NO digging! We have to leave for bible school in 2 hours and I don't want to give you a bath.
Of course they swore they wouldn't dig and out the door they ran. Straight to the "barn" where they proceeded to scoop "poop" not dirt from their cow Butterscotch.

Sometimes you just have to admit they've outwitted you and concede defeat!

New Year, New Resolutions

And so another new year has begun. If you are anything like me I am always inspired to start anew, refresh, recharge. Unfortunately it isn't as easy as that. In the past I have always made lofty, highly unachievable resolutions: lose 70 lbs by February, get rid of all clutter in home, move to a new home next week.

Ok, so maybe those were slightly exaggerated, but truthfully each year I make my list and usually within days I have "fallen off" the proverbial wagon and I my resolutions are a thing of the past. I have been reflecting a lot the past week or so and I realize that what I want more than anything is to be the person I was used to be. Not literally, 10 years all but erases that possibility. But I want to look in the mirror and see someone smiling back that not only do I like, but funny as this may sound, I love.

Posted below is my list of resolutions for the year. You might note that #4 on my list is Love myself. This isn't anything weird or funny, just truly loving who I am. I need to appreciate all of the good in my life. Be thankful for what I have and what I can do. And more importantly I need to accept what I can't do, not beat myself up over it, but accept that its ok.

In 2 weeks I will be turning 35. That is a magical age to me, not because I am half way to 40 but because I feel like I am finally an adult. An adult who resolves to love myself.
