One Good thing: All the things I love!


I almost let this day get away from me without sharing something fun from the weekend.

I haven’t been around these parts as of late because the end of the school year is upon us and our son is graduating in 3 weeks so there has been planning and projects and more planning, etc.

Susi, Claudia, and Leslie created this fabulous feel good way to start your week.

Here are some of my top contenders from the weekend!

My son and his girlfriend got all dolled up making themselves the cutest couple ever for their senior prom that was this past Saturday!

May means Melanoma Awareness Month, my awesome BFF sent this wonderful care package home to me. I am set on sunblock and lip balm! 😀 THANK YOU HEATHER!


And last but not least, if you haven’t already checked his place out, go see my friend Eli over at Coach Daddy for his monthly feel good post in 6 Words

Have a great week everyone!

Friday’s Funny sponsored by the “F” word


WARNING: this post contains language!

From an 18 year old to his mother – only he didn’t know that.

My son texts me to let me know he is safely at work so I don’t freak out. My response is simply a smiley face.

Confusion set in when the next text I received from him was a “kiss”.

I thought nothing of it other than it was odd because my son doesn’t send me kisses. Heck I am lucky to share breathable air space with him 😉

Then the next text came through and I read it – TWICE – and thought to myself
he thinks he’s talking to his girlfriend  – I should warn him before this gets really awkward.


So I did.


the F word

I truly love and adore this boy!

We had a good laugh later that night about the whole thing!

Happy Friday!

The Liebster Award – my friends rock!


About 6 weeks ago I was reading one of my favorite bloggers post HERE

I was honored by Eli for his kind words and nomination for the The Liebster Award and thought I better get my post up finally after thanking him then and again now.

Guys, I have had a bad case of “writers block” as of lately. The words are eluding me because I have had too much racing through my brain to catch any thoughts worth putting to paper. Forgive me please, I fear it may not be over yet, but at least this way, I have a reason to actually put my fingers to the keyboard.

So the rules of acceptance are to share 11 things you may or may not already know about me. Followed by 11 more questions asked by my friend Eli. Followed by my own nominations in which I provide 11 of my own questions.

Here we go….11 things about me.

  2. I adore those rye chips out of the Gardetto’s snack bags.
