This past weekend, Rebecca and I went camping with the Girl Scout troop. It definitely was an experience in itself. Rebecca had never been camping, and I've kind of gone camping before, but had the availability of showers if needed.... Continue reading

We had a sick little girl this weekend. There are so many different illnesses going around the schools lately, and she is one of the unfortunate ones to have caught something. She first got sick on Friday night, so that... Continue reading

Have you heard of the direct selling company called LuLaRoe? If you haven't, you need to find a consultant in your area. Their clothing is amazing ... you need a pair of their leggings. Their leggings are so soft, you... Continue reading

I have been away for quite some time, sorry about that, my followers. I just wasn't into the "blog" thing much over the past 1.5 years. Hopefully I'll stick with it this year. There a few things that I've missed... Continue reading

Are you watching American Idol this season? In my eyes, this has been a good season so far. I think most of the contestants still in the running are meant to still be on the show. One of my favorites... Continue reading

How many of you have watched Survivor from the beginning? I started watching in the very first season, and believe I only missed one season out of the 30 seasons since 2000 when it aired. I definitely liked some seasons... Continue reading

I had lots of photos from two separate events from 2009 that I wanted to scrapbook this weekend. I always look to starting with a sketch to be my starting point. It was fun to create layouts with several pictures... Continue reading
