Recent Happenings

Yesterday we had an afternoon thunderstorm. Kayla sat her chair in front of the sliding glass door to watch the rain. To the girls horror, a bird nest was blown from one of our trees. Kenzie wanted to run out there and rescue any babies that may be out there - regardless of all the thunder and lightning cracking all around. Once the rain stopped, I let her run out to check and there were no eggs or babies to be found. They were relieved.
We settled in to play games, read, and we watched High School Musical. We will eventually add that to our DVD collection. It has great songs and it's just a fun movie to watch. High School Musical 2 is premiering on the Disney channel August 17th and we're counting down the days to watch it. Perhaps I'll make it a family event with popcorn and goodies?

Today is the day I run most of the errands and shop for groceries for the week. I have been in such a food rut's hard for me to come up with fresh meal ideas every week. So I had the girls give me some ideas and I made out the menu for the week and a shopping list.

I recently signed up for one season of style advice through because I want to look my best and dress for my body shape. I have found it to be quite helpful. One season is only $9.95 and four seasons is $29.95. If you're looking to have a makeover or update your personal style, it is a beneficial service that is reasonably priced. When you look good, you feel good!

Now I need to wake my children up so we can get ready to go run errands. I like to leave early to beat the heat, the traffic, and hopefully the rain! Hope you have a wonderful day! xx
